  1. MS, I heartily disagree with you on tyres...


    There's a huge difference between dodgy as fuck brands and proper stuff, not just the materials, manufacturing standards, but also the R+D.

    I spend $260+ each tyre on my performance car, because I buy for what I use the car for, nothing less..


    Chingpangyumcha tyres have their uses, those uses are kia carnivals doing 40kmh.

  2. I'm with Leo on this one.


    That man would be alive now if there wasn't someone trying to send a message, make a point, terrorise people.


    He wasn't stabbed because someone wanted to stab a person at random.


    Reasons matter, people caught out for murder and still questioned on motives, yes?


    I see it as part of war, the man was a soldier afterall.

    it really gives me the shits lately how innocent lives in the western world suddenly matter so much more than in the middle east, I don't see any bleeding hearts going on about innocents murdered wrongly by the day over there....


    Western world gets a taste of their own medicine, suddenly its the most horrific thing since the Holocaust....


    Disclaimer: I don't support murdering eachother.

  3. Throwing food and money at them wont fix much for long, I think that's been well established for a while.


    government attitude and internal violence problems seem to need fixing in order to improve things futher?


    I'm no expert on the matter, but if it were as simple as pegging money at the issue, it would have been fixed by now....

  4. Everyone's going nuts over Get Lucky, I had to look up the song again to make sure I'd listened to the right one...

    I thought it was crap.

    Guitar work was nice and cheery, otherwise batshit boring.


    Have not heard the rest, I'll reserve judgement on that until later,

  5. Seem to have an abscess forming about 1cm above my top right wisdom tooth, doesnt hurt unless I swallow, then it kills,


    I really hope it's an easy fix, seeing my dentist in the morning, he can tell me if it's a dental job, or a GP job.

  6. The MATHS don't seem to have convinced many in the industry.

    Many in the industry are a bit like you Hlass - all they think about is tech.


    Not how much it costs, when it might be completed and whether it would make sense for Australia to be the only country in the world to make the jump from CAN to FTTH in one go, and into a government monopoly.


    No, I understand the maths just fine. I'm just cynical about what corners might be cut to save a few bucks.

    And why would you be less cynical about Labor's given they're reducing promises/breaking promises right now to achieve a slightly less shithouse budget position?


    The coalitions plan isn't much cheaper. Factoring in the higher maintainence requirements and poor upgrade path it may even be more expensive in the long term. A long term in which its limited capabilites will be surpassed by the requirements of the populace.


    Why settle for expensive and poor quality?


    This, very much this.


    FTTH is the future, has to happen sooner or later.
