    NSW / QLD fires

    The appalling Government, you say? The leader of which has just jetted out of Sydney for a holiday and not to return until the new year! He's apparently headed to Hawaii. Sure, everyone is entitled to a holiday...but while the country burns and runs out of water, he's not really shown any leadership what so ever. He's a god damn cock eared fuck thumper! https://www.afr.com/politics/federal/scott-morrison-on-pre-christmas-family-holiday-20191216-p53ki7

    Registers Down !!!

    I don't do this anymore, but when they self service registers were first introduced - of course being a geek I always try to mess with a system - I would always bag kipfler potatoes but pay for the cheap ones! Kipfler spuds are way better when covered in duck fat and roasted

    Fresh produce doesn't have barcodes. I can still, effectively, buy a bag of avocados and tell the computer I have a bag of grapes.

    Registers Down !!!

    Won't be long now before the self service registers will be equipped with cameras that will know precisely what you are putting in front of them, regardless of weight. And I'm not talking about security cameras as a deterrent. I mean for product identification purposes.

    I should have said MPOS, not necessarily EFTPOS.

    Registers Down !!!

    There is no separate network for such services. Only differences between an EFTPOS terminal and a smartphone is the SIM card. And even then, it still uses 3G/4G - the difference in the types of SIMs allows for a different billing mechanism. If there's an outage for mobile phones, the same applies to EFTPOS terminals. Perhaps you are getting confused with the NB-IoT network?

    What's on your mind?

    The risk is quite apparent in the name of the activity. ACTIVE volcano. Tough titties. It's like skydiving - there are obvious dangers in DIVING FROM THE SKY.
  12. Here's a name I haven't seen for a while!
  13. I'm pretty sure we haven't had a thread dedicated to memes. I could be wrong. Back in the good ol' days memes weren't even a thing. I'll start. Only rules... one meme per post GO!

    Spot on. You know I live on that shit. The only time I need to go to the doctor is for painkillers when I fall off things! And what the fuck is with those half life 3 voices? Are they supposed to be Australian accents or Kiwi accents?

    And What Are You Listening To?

    @nickeax Get some. Play some.
  18. Yep. I spent 7 years working for SAP as a senior consultant. I not once had a client in Sydney. A few interstate clients but also too many international clients. It would have been the perfect job for a young, single person. Once a month there'd be a project request spreadsheet that would come out seeking consultants with certain skills...they'd list the customer, skills required, project duration and global location. So you could literally say "Oh, wouldn't mind spending the next 2 years in Paris. Or Rio." Or anywhere. But as a married man with a couple of kids it was just fucked. There was no ifs or buts. Once I took 10 days off as annual leave to renovate my bathroom. I get a call from my manager on a Saturday telling me I would need to be in Bangalore on Monday morning, so book a flight for Sunday. The bathroom wasn't even finished. So while I was over in India working, having a nice shower in a nice hotel, the missus was showering at the gym each day.
