  1. You should have applied as soon as out of work. Apply ASAP, if you get a job in meantime is easy to cancel. You make appointment to see them, show you been let go from last position (separation cert, etc), and fill out paperwork. Nothing complicated. Leave sweet FA in your bank accounts, this will count against you if "reasonable" amount of funds there. Claim was spent paying bills if asked. Understand your obligations, receive the pittance the pay, find nerw job. Pretty straight forward.

     

    Only reason you should have to pay is you lie to them, about having no work, and need to repay monies received you were not entitled to. If you get caught. :P

     

    Straight-forward really. Make appointment or just turn up at office and wait, interview, fill out paperwork, and agrre to everything. Then wait 2 weeks before they do shit for you. Easy. Tho, no less painful.

    But if he's tossed in the job without a reasonable excuse (just cause he felt like it isn't a reasonable excuse) he's going to be looking at an eight-week non-payment period from the day after he last worked, before he'll get any money on Newstart.

     

    It's difficult to say what the outcome will be without having the full situation to look at.

     

    He was off the books.

    No problem.

     

    Doesn't matter whether it's off the books or not.

     

    Only thing will be that since it was off the books the employer will be less than forthcoming with a separation certificate. The non-payment period still applies.

  3. Holy shit, fighting off the Undead at Redcliffe is killing me!

    Same.

     

    I get through the bit with the knights without any trouble, but when I go down the hill the townsfolk all get massacred and then I follow them into deathness.

     

    I suppose that's what I get for playing on hard on my first play through.

    The episode on Monday was probably the worst example of TV this year. This fact was further emphasised the fact that they played a Golf game on the Wii with a guy who writes books (none of which are video games) and proceeded to have said author to rag out on video games.

     

    Two strikes down, one to go imo.


  5. Overall it felt very meh.

     

    The producers/ABC haven't really handled the whole change of host all that well. Boning someone in the middle of the season because they wanted a 'refresh for 2010' and Jeremy's travel plans didn't fit with the shooting schedule for the 1h Christmas special reasoning as quoted from Amanda Duthrie seems a bit rough, or at least that's the latest explanation coming out of the ABC.

     

    Found it a bit forced on both sides, and generally three steps back for no steps forward.


  6. I'm totally comfortable that there will be a workaround released in a very short time frame. Even if it was "Buy the censored game, download the full content, add a pinch of script, serve" - I reckon it can happen, and whats more, our friend in south aussie wont be able to do a thing about it.

     

    And of course the irony of it all is, the 12 year olds will be able to do it just as easily as the rest of us.

     

    R rating and parenting, anyone?

    I very much doubt that it would be that easy. Would probably have to be some kind of DLC to "unlock" the non-Michael Atkinson version of the game.

     

    Reason I guess that, is after the Hot Coffee incident, I doubt the OFLC would look to kindly to a game that was shipped but the "naughty" bits were only coded out.


  7. I'll second 1shots advice that you should have gone right straight into Centrelink.

     

    Given the time frame that it can sometimes take to get your payment off the ground, and the fact that your benefit only starts from the day you get in contact isn't going to help your current financial situation.

     

    End of the day, Centrelink doesn't care if you're on benefit for two weeks and then have to cancel your payment because you find work.


  8. Can't you go on some sort of Sickness Benefit, or is that one and the same with Disability?

     

    Sounds like they're just using you as a training exercise in fucking people around.

    Sickness Benefit is only for those who have a temporary medical condition that's stopping them from going to work and they've run out of sick leave and they've got a job to return to once their right to return to said work.

     

    DSP on the other hand is purely based on the medical condition. It's not really my area of expertise but it's my understanding that it's based on a numerical score, but also that the condition is permanent, stabilised, going to be effecting the person for more than 2 years and that they're not going to be able to work more than 0-7 hours per week because of it.

     

    That's stemming from the Welfare2Work changes that were part in parcel with the WorkChoices legislation from the previous government.

     

    End of the day, it all comes down to legislation. Centrelink can't go out and grant payments to anybody willy nilly. If the legislation says that you must be X, Y and Z to get payment ABC, you can argue till you're blue in the face if you don't get it but at the end of the day, if you don't meet the criteria of the legislation then you don't get the payment. If you think the legislation needs to be changed, then your local member is the person to speak to about getting the legislation changed.

     

     

     

    NB. Yes I do work for "The Man"® but the above is my own opinion and not that of my employer.
