#1193462 Multi monitor slide show

Would like to daisy chain with DP Nich but finding TVs with DP 1.2 and two ports to allow daisy chaining is proving problematic, but it would be ideal.

The next Doctor to be Jodie Whittaker. Loathe or like the idea, she's not a bad actress. Whether she'll be good in the role of Doctor * shrugs*

Ye just reading a thread on another forum about this. Jeez talk about a bunch of whiny misogynistic dickheads.

Question is;

Do I replace what I just lost, or do I go for a cheap Luxury car I can VIP-spec.....


Accord Euros are getting to the $3k range, could be fun.... bit of Luxury for a change....

Do up a list of wants, desirables and don't wants first.

And don't forget to check tyres, spares and service prices on any vehicle you look at. Some cars have horrendous spares and service prices. Why tyres? Because some vehicles run odd sizes/profiles that are way overpriced.

And a big " Fuck You ! " to the Labor Party in Tassie. ffs. Mandatory minimum sentencing for child fuckers / assaulters is the least you could have helped with :(

The MLCs (our upper house) who opposed it are not all ALP, some are independents.

Without there opposition it would have passed.

Currently we have two liberals, three labour and ten independents in the Legislative Council.

So you should be screaming at the independents, especially as these independents tend to be from the conservative side of politics (often very conservative).

Our lower house has an outright majority Liberal Government so the ALP cannot block any legislation.

15 Liberals, 7 ALP, 3 Greens is the current makeup.


The trouble with minimum mandatory sentencing is it leaves it in the hands of knee jerk politicians which is something I am very loath to support.


As for


But you know, looking after our young will never be done correctly until the basics get sorted.

Mandatory sentencing has nothing to do with this. Nothing at all.

If you have bought a new HDD check the manufacturers web site as they sometimes off free versions of commercial cloning software to clone an old drive to a new drive.

Otherwise grab Macrium Reflect Free


as it can do disk to disk cloning.

Won't work if you have dynamic disk partitions though.

It's great that an individual (supported by her union) can challenge her EBA with the FWC.


Actually she is going against her union and is challenging the EBA that the SDA and Coles worked out.

The SDA is a completely useless union for the most part.



s challenging the company's 2011 EBA with her union, the Shop Distributive
& Allied Employees Association (SDA). Ms Vickers, who is representing herself at the Commission,

The front page of the Courier Mail portrayed Malcy as the Man From Snowy River :\  I think somebody should be offended by this

The whole bloody nation should be, but at least he didn't ponce around on a navy ship trying to look all admiraly.




still makes me shudder.

A cheaper option to fix the SA issues in peak summer are Diesel generators.  They're quick to install if you get the pre-configured shipping container units, and have a low capital cost, but they're expensive to run. 


That's what happened down here in Tassie when we had a "perfect storm" of dreadfully low Hydro storage (a combination of poor rainfall and Aurora Energy flogging to much power to the mainland at peak prices) and a break in the Basslink power cable meaning we couldn't import power from Vic.


Ot but one of the contributors to the Basslink break thread on Whirlpool has posted some dam(n) good videos on Vimeo



/Grr stupid forum is trying to embed a link as a video.
