    What's on your mind?

    i don't consider advertising has any merit whatsoever, and actively block it everywhere possible - the absence of my "hits" on sponsored sites won't make a jot of difference to them, but benefits to my sanity from a clean browser is priceless my approach is to actively research stuff i am interested in collecting, and rely on serendipity in the forums to alert me to stuff i never knew about (like the khadas tone board, f'rinstance)

    when you finally notice you're drowning, it will be of little consolation to worry who is responsible for the plumbing issues but yeah, it's not my tap

    trump reminds me of a dog chasing a car, and catching it, only to discover he has no idea what to do once that happens
  12. we bought our house up the hill from manly in mid 1992, just as the beach was starting to reflect better outfall solutions becoming active excellent timing on our part - couldn't buy a very basic free standing house locally for much under $2m these days; i certainly couldn't afford to be a local if i wasn't already entrenched check this : https://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-11-16/where-sydney-sends-its-sewerage/6945904 the beach went from swimming under turd to swimming undeterred; the difference is remarkable the band "bondi cigars" was named after the local slang for surf borne shit pieces

    What a joke

    be good if they actually considered habitable mass versus total area it's like suggesting morbidly obese people are all muscle
  14. manly has a deep ocean outfall, but discharged effluent only undergoes "primary treatment" manly beach is now pretty pristine after being a cesspool till the late 80's, when raw sewerage was pretty much piped directly off north head at flying fish point, and a good sou' easter would wash it into the bay that is manly surfactant to help it dispersed stripped wax off the iconic norfolk island pines, such that the bottom 10 metres or so were pretty much without pine needles - although sydney water denied that was their doing funnily, once the deep outfall started, the pine trees are like new after a few decades...
