    Quicker than FTTH, Brisbane gets FTTP

    He he he I love a good pun. As I live in Bris this is good news, But wait the next Ten years for this to actually happen is going to be a bitch.

    Music Players

    iTunes here not because I like it but because I use an iPod touch, yes I can use other programs to synch but none are as simple for music, podcasts, audio books and video.

    2 notes for drivers

    Sorry Scythe not all bins in Brisbane have ashtrays, a good percentage have been removed or otherwise blocked off. But that being said it's easy to put a cigarette out and then put it a bin or in my pocket ashtray

    Whta's the scarist date you've ever been on?

    I went out with a girl from work, We had a few drinks in a few bars and then she wanted to go to a club in the Valley called the Beat (a gay bar) to meet her brother. So I say thats cool and we go, Then spent the rest of the night trying to get in her pants while her brother tried to get in mine. Funny now but at the time it was kinda awkward.

    ASUS EEE PC 701 - 4GB RAM upgrade

    I've got 2G running in my N10J and it runs just fine on Vista or Windows 7, So I dont see why you would need 4G in a Netbook

    Storage Server Case Ideas

    Nah the fans stay attached to the drive cages so they get airflow and so does the rest of the case

    What keyboard and mouse to choose?

    I'd go with a Bluetooth combo as they appear to work with the PS3, I use the DiNovo edge for my desktop and a Razer Proclick for my netbook with no problems

    Windows 7 Beta 1 rumored release for December 2008

    Windows 7 is using the Vista kernel but it has been rewritten and optimised from the ground up. So if it feels like Vista but faster and maybe smooth the coders have done their job

    Midlife crisis?

    FNM FTW :) Sorry, I can't add anything to the actual topic other than aim for something more than a PC assembly job if you plan on entering IT. I see PC building as an entry point, much like being a glassie was an entry to bartending
