    Customers. Thanks for coming

    Used to work for a guy with a Limo business, he said the worst customers were the govt and corps that had 60 day accounts, and they were always paid late (something to do with payment cycles) and then on a cheque, which has to clear. He spent a lot of time trying to switch them to corp/credit card payments.

    Atomic Streamers

    If you stream at all (on any platform) I'd like to make a list for people to check out. I understand most people use Twitch, but we won't exclude anyone who uses an alternative platform, such as Mixer or Youtube etc. Please list your Stream's Channel URL (such as twitch.tv etc) Optionally: List the game/s or genres you mainly play If you have a set schedule, some idea of the days/times you usually stream If you have a discord server, you don't need to list it, but you may want to mention it.

    Luenig’s sister has called him out on the cartoon, https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-10-25/artist-mary-leunig-responds-to-brothers-controversial-cartoon/11638932

    Google begins to scare me

    When I first joined facebook, I used an email address specifically created for it, I just added my name, DOB and City. Within a day, it was suggesting people that I might know and it was fairly bang on accurate. I can only assume it had used location data, because these were people I'd been in physical proximity with (Family, friends, work colleagues, etc)

    A few things Atomic has taught me

    Takoma popped up on the Discord, but he's not particularly active there either.

    I got myself a Surface Go (LTE) and a Yamaha AG06 Mixing Console / USB Audio Interface (and some mics and all the various things to connect them together) have to sacrifice 15GB of the storage for an install of Cubasis AI 10 just for laughs, the AG06 also works with Mac, Android and iOS devices!

    PTSD - an utter curse

    I knew a guy who flew choppers in Vietnam, and he was only recently diagnosed with PTSD. They actually involved his whole family in the diagnosis and treatment program, as his family were the people who were most affected by it.

    The Naruto Run !

    I figure 90% of people will treat it like the joke it is, 1% may turn up thinking it's serious, everyone else will just go along to rubberneck. (including the media)

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    In anticipation of the release of Borderlands 3, I decided to play through the original and BL2 (pre sequel, DLC, etc) I have the games on my PC, but my PC is crap, and not enjoyable So I was happy when I found out that Gearbox had released the original on PlayStation 4 Now I've embarked on a journey of trying to complete the three games and as much DLC as I can before 3 is released. So, I also figured out how to stream to Twitch from the PS4, and the crappy headset that comes with the playstation is crappy, so I bought a new chat headset (I use my stereo fro game audio)

    I got the 46mm one with LTE I traded up from the Gear S2, which was still in perfect working order, however, I did like the LTE option, and the 4x battery life of the Galaxy watch. I've also found the NFC contactless pay feature to be much more reliable.
  16. Traveling in india with a roaming (indian) sim card, that's painful. I did have 2GB international roaming on my Telstra SIM card for emergencies

    Drone Photography

    I have acquired a DJI Spark drone, an entry level video/photography drone. After I work out the mechanics of flying a drone, I'd love to learn some of the photography side of it. Anyone have any hints or tips? One day I'd like a Mavic Air, but at this stage, I just can't justify it.

    Clive Palmer

    He is Trump Lite in a way. But, he likes to sit in the comfortable space between the two major parties, and cherry pick the policies of both.

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    I bought 3 items I had a $100 jaycar gift voucher, and the Powerbank seemed like a good deal (I already have an Anker 20,000mAh Powerbank, but it doesn't have QC or USB Type-C PD) The USB Type-C to MicroUSB 3.0 Type-B cable I bought to test with (Some laptops and Macs have USB Type-C Ports, I'd like to see if the cable works with external HDDs) and I got the 3TB Drive to start storing my DJI Spark footage/photos, but I'll need to grab a second one so I can keep redundant copies. I hit send earlier and got interrupted at work, forgot to add in the details

    The most special people

    hoo boy, Last time I saw Zebra, I went to visit him at his work. I couldn't even comprehend the sort of stuff he was working with. This was more than enterprise networking, more than running a datacentre, madness!
