    Why I was up at an insane hour....

    Didn't even realise it was on. Weird that the cricket also had their final at the same time, I'd have thought they'd schedule away from it. Had the phone on the CricInfo live scorecard but only got a couple of updates - I picked the winner but not the method of the result.

    What's on your mind?

    Calling it early (Innings break) - England to win the Cricket World Cup, after NZ scores 8/241 (Aus was 223 the other day and they passed that with almost 18 overs to spare). I reckon they'll probably do it in little over 40 overs.

    Then to now

    I assume that's got something more significant than an old carb equipped 5.0?

    I'mmmmmm BACK!

    Yeah, welcome back. And as I said elsewhere, nice that the alt got a rename rather than having the mess of starting over again.

    Nice job on the nic change... now just to find the old av (can't remember what he used)

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    To follow the previous one up... now installed. Supposedly it uses pistons from a Honda 50cc so I guess the capacity is probably somewhere in the range 350-500cc.

    YT needs the abilty to give more than one thumb up sometimes. This has to be the coolest video of the month so far.

    How cool is this guy

    I remember when I was a kid, a mate told me a story of a motorbike club meet where someone died. The bloke hit a rut at low speed and got thrown off and supposedly the helmet contributed to the fatality as it snapped the top of his spinal cord. His old man had the job to drive the guy's car back and give the news to his wife, as he was the only one who knew how to operate the old 3-on-a-tree gearshift. In this case though, a helmet would likely be of benefit - I'd not worry so much from an initial impact but by being stomped by the 1/2 a tonne of animal you just got thrown off.

    Please Explain ... if you can

    Age of entitlement. Age of meetooism (Jackass). But give it a month or three, some other stupid fad will make it yesterday's news.

    Any car gurus around?

    I forget now... I get the feeling you might have posted elsewhere but what was the diag/fix for it ?

    how crap is this government ?

    Sure as shit, that animation needs a pause button.

    What's on your mind?

    I've wondered though... if the connection drops and it uses cellular data, do you get charged extra? Re EFT at shops, I was surprised when I first saw one with a SIM but I've been to shops where the EFT becomes unavailable if someone's using the phone, and ones where it has a dedicated line but seems to take an eternity to dial each time. So I guess a 3G or 4G connection is probably a better alternative. The cricket - what a disaster. Lucky to get 223, and all out with an over wasted. And that's in contrast to us beating the Poms by a decent margin just a couple of weeks ago. Entirely possible we might defend it (their last score in that match was only 221 all out in 44.4 chasing 286) but it's a pretty paltry target to defend.

    Hundreds? You barely get them. ATMs don't dispense them AFAIK. And the only people who regularly walk into a physical bank are either pensioners who would rarely deal in large amounts and shop owners who would mainly be there to deposit cash.

    What's on your mind?

    In some cases the cellular data SIM is just used as a backup similar to what some ISPs provide. But I guess I can see how some might use it as the main/only comms link - I guess it's thought to be secure enough.

    What's on your mind?

    Paywave secure? I don't know about that. That's why you have these $30 "RFID protection" sleeves being sold because anyone with an NFC equipped phone or tablet can just read your chip and clone it. (and the $30 bit of junk is just a cheap Faraday Cage which can be accomplished DIY with a piece of alfoil either side of your card)
