She just needs to start offerin everyone jelly babies, and we'll all love her. ;)

Remember the outrage when they made the Yellow Wiggle a woman?


No?  (No kids.)

#1193333 Well, that's wonderful

but walkers have that nice storage under the seat, and the seat, which is good if you need to catch your breath

They're also great for 'carrying' stuff. eg: fully dinner plate, cutlery, glass of wine, plus salt/pepper grinders - all at once. :) But you do have to get over the feeling that you've suddenly become old. :p

I mean, imagine if it didn't 'fix' the tumors too! what a nightmare of side effects.


Well, if it hadn't fixed the tumours, I wouldn't had the side-effects.  Not for long, anyway. ;p

#1193028 What Did You Watch Lately ?

Now that is an instrument I would not have imagined for that track. It works, though. IMO, of course.

If you thought it was interesting, she has a bunch more covers on that thing on her channel. I'm especially fond of the Space Odyssey and Stairway to Heaven ones (YT copyright claim killed the audio on that one. http://www.facebook....?type=2 instead.)

#1192652 What's on your mind?

OOooOO!  Been offline for a day while the NBN migration happened.  Previous connection was nominally 8Mb/s and got 6 tops.  This one is nominally 25Mb/s, and so far gets 22-23Mb/s. *AND* it's cheaper than my old one!  (just)  :) Colour me happy!


Guess we'll see how stable the speed is, and whether or not my d/l usage goes through the roof.  May have to shell out some more readies for the unlimited plan.

#1192585 Roll Call!

Posted by Cybes on 19 June 2017 - 03:06 AM

And to the people who keep it going... You're awesome! Lots of love to you.


Why thankyou!  TBH though, I tend think we're hanging around out of inertia, mostly. ;)

I'm now black coffee, black chocolate. Good riddance milk... except you cheese... I still love you... and miss you. :'(


I've been a dark chocolate man since I was a kid.  Milk chocolate is goo.  And that "white chocolate" stuff is just unspeakable rubbish!  Been on black, unsweetened coffee since '95 as well - I know the date exactly because the change coincided with a surgery.


Dairy has its place.  That place is not, generally, is not as a moderator for other flavours.

It's reverted back today hmmm


Y'know, there's a thread on this in Feedback.  Just in case you'd like a way to find out that isn't "by surprise".

I think he's referring to the incumbent English PM who went to the election on the strength of good polling and managed to end up with a hung parliament in what was thought to be an unlosable election.

#1192282 "The Australia Tax" on electronics...

Posted by Cybes on 07 June 2017 - 11:54 AM

Who's to blame for this constant over-pricing of devices here?

GST, import duty, currency conversion, and freight. Now, if you start talking about the prices Steam gouges for downloaded software that they don't give a cut to the Aus govt for, then you might would have a legitimate case.

Can you use ADB and boot to recovery or something?
Or just do a bootloader unlock, which is supposed to erase all user data.

Second reply: I feel somewhat vindicated now... Took it into the local Telstra Shop (that being the only place for a few hundred klicks with any clue about cellphones); turns out a whole lot of people with a GS-V have had the same problem, and it's bad enough for Sammy to RTB them. 1-3 weeks without a phone. Yay. ;p

#1192213 Home Automation - Anyone in to this?

Posted by Cybes on 05 June 2017 - 09:32 AM

Has anyone looked into this in more depth?

Personally, I love the idea a whole lot - and not just for convenience, but because there is stuff that is downright difficult for me to do. At this point, at least where I live now or have done in the past, this stuff might as well be from Star Trek for all the people I can find to install it. Thus, I have not looked further into whose version does what.

TBH, I don't know the answer to the poll question. I'd stopped buying the mag before it stopped printing. Not sure if it was direction changes, or interest changes.

One thing, though: you can never recreate the magic. Doesn't matter whether you're talking about a magazine, a nightclub, or an entire genre - once it dies, trying to bring it back to life just makes a zombie.
