  1. I've just spent a month being with mum in hospital. Thank fuck she's getting better. It's just a long, long journey back to health.
  2. At this time of year, Saint Nick/Father Christmas/Papa Noel/etc and his helper elves/photographers are usually waiting to hear from all the children and have a photo taken. There is usually no lines, and a long break between sessions, so the kids can have a great chat/experience with the jolly old man. Also you have a better chance of snagging your kids "must have limited edition" present. Also if the young ones get fussy, and just not cooperating, then there's a lot of time to still get that treasured momento. Getting to the week before Christmas, the lines get long, interaction time is less.. it just gets messy. Source: I spent 2 years "modelling" If you have a question, please ask, I'm happy to answer most questions!
  3. That reminds me of when i Just got adsl at home.. a mate needed a 100mb program downloaded. So I got that, then downloaded the french version too because the download was so fast!
  4. So i've had a few rather janky internet connections in the past.. When I first mved to Melbourne in the early 2000's, I moved in with 2 atomicans and we shared a dialup connection! Later on when I moved to my own place, i had dialup again, but no dedicated modem, so it went from the wall, to a laptop that had a built in modem, to a pcmcia network card, then crossover network cable to my main pc. I think an old freeware program made this possible, analoguex's proxy. http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/Network/proxy/Freeware.htm looks like the site is near abandoned now. Thankfully in the years since then, i've had propper adsl, adsl2+ and fttn connections, but moving for work has left me with a need for a new cobbled together system. Today i'm living in an area with no phone lines, and really spotty 4g coverage. My solution was to get a USB 4g wifi dongle, plugged into a usb wall charger, with an external antenna hanging in the window. Im getting a rather constant connection, but the speeds do go up and down. The extra $15/month for the sim card added to my plan doesnt really affect me too much, and the dongle and antenna only cost $60 all up on ebay. So, whats the craziest way you've connected?
