  1. Hot damn. Holy. Fucking Shit. So awesome.

    Hahaha, this quote says it all. That sub 20 second fight was hilarious, as was Koshcheck's face and Dana's post fight comments.

     

    That Brookins kid looks like a serious finalist. And yeah that dude who lots on GSP's team had a broken hand, so I think he did really well under the conditions.


  2. I have the biggest issue with CPU coolers, they hate me for some reason. And I'm always so scared of breaking something.

     

    Repatching network cabling is a pretty horrid job. And never looks neat, no matter how much time I send on it.

     

    Anything with active sync never ever worked like it should have.

     

     

    Wireless networking is pretty idiot proof these days, only call the isp for the internet login information. I had one router that wouldn't work but it rattled like a maccarena, we agreed that something inside wasn't screwed in properly.

    I can see this being expanded to include everyone, not just welfare in the future (considering this was the original plan). How would you feel if this encompassed all citizens?

     

    Coalition to revive identity card Tim Colebatch

    August 20, 2010

     

    A COALITION government would revive the controversial Howard-era plan for a national access card to identify every individual receiving government benefits, shadow treasurer Joe Hockey has revealed.

     

    On the eve of what Prime Minister Julia Gillard says will be a ''cliffhanger'' federal election, Mr Hockey has told The Age that giving everyone a single identifier for access to health and welfare benefits could lead to ''massive improvements in productivity in health and welfare''.

     

    But instead of everyone having a card, this time the identifier could be in electronic form.


  4. The way I view this is much the same as I view my move from dial-up to cable.

     

    I started with one device on dial-up, very slow performance, limited options on what I could use the internet for. Now I have cable I have 7 devices connected to the internet, most of them permanently. The small amount of new technologies I've been able to experience from going to cable is great.

     

    I'm sure with a fibre to the node we will see a lot more technology develop to use this bandwidth. PCoIP and IPTV are just two current technologies that will make great use of the bandwidth. Hopefully we can even see a move to more people telecommuting.


  5. No substance.

     

    I'm still voting coalition because $43 billion is a gigantic waste of money spent on service duplication for the 0.05% of Australians who need faster porn.

    You must live in major metro city.

     

    You must live in a rural area. Maybe I should complain to you about how expensive my mortgage is.

     

    And that way we can both tell each other to stop being crying nancies and realise that the choices we all make affect the services and costs of living available to us.

     

    I live in a metro city, so you're wrong. I know people that live within 15KM's of the city who cannot get any broadband because Telstra refuse to upgrade their local exchange.

     

    Part of the deal with privatising Telstra is that rural areas should not suffer, and if it's bad for people in Brisbane how will it be for those in remote areas.

     

    The reason why we're in this situation is that Telstra are purposefully holding back technology development. It is obvious that the NBN wouldn't be required if Telstra were a market leader.

     

    So the coalition will spend 6 Billion on nothing? No major advances.


  6. I love Glenlivet, got a bottle of 15 year ready for my birthday next month.

     

    My mate drinks Oban and it is fantastic, $90 a bottle though.

     

    Talisker is nice and Laphroig is good, although very strong flavour. Dan Murphy's have a 15 year or 18 year special release in the cupboards for about $130, I bought and enjoyed that.

     

    If you're new to scotch, I'd recommend going to a decent bar and trying a few different ones on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It's better to spend $10 - $15 on a glass to find out if you like it vs $100 for a bottle.


  7. you do realise this is a labor blueprint don't you ?

     

    and that conroy is the man in the driver's seat

     

    i should release my plan of cure for cancer and the abolition of mortality if you like to read about another good fantasy

    I live in Brisbane. So long as Abbott doesn't fuck it up I'll be getting fibre.

     

    fuck yeah!


  8. GRID - Loved it but formatted my computer 3/4 of the way through. Hard to get the motivation to do it all over again.

    Call of Pripyat - Loved the first two in the series, not really getting into it though.

    Metro 2033 - not bad, it's not sandbox like Stalker. Some parts were a bit annoying but I finished it.

    Torchlight - is a solid little gem. If you loved diablo 2, then it is more of the same. If you know how to play take on a harder difficulty level. The pet is a great addition (better be in diablo 3).

    Bioshock 2 - I don't think this was as good as the first. Still a good game to play through. Dual weld is fun.

    Crysis Warhead - All over in about 4 hours. Should be able to knock that over in one day.

    Episiodes - Loved the biker one, not really loving the ballad one as much. This ones on the back burner for now.

     

    Haven't played the others so can't comment.


  9. Yeah it's not really drawing me in too much at the moment.

    I started out the same way, about an hour in I started to get hooked and by the end of the game I loved it. Hence why I played it through the second time.
