    How many Cd's/ vinyl do you own?

    Almost 200 CDs and I'd say approx 150 vinyl, it's all in storage atm so I can't give a definitive answer.

    "I said settle down!"

    In the six weeks I was working on the new barrack blocks at Enoggera I heard a LAV fire once. All they ever did was play sport, or when someone official came through they'd set-up an arty position outside the gym and roll out some Bushmasters. Must have been one hell of a breeze to blow it over to Mitchelton.

    Masked Lapwings (aka Plovers)

    Tried playing soccer with a Plover nest on the center line?

    It's not the cacophany we're after, it's the swooping. Get some video of that, and Funniest Home Videos will probably have your children.

    An interesting comparison of 2 factories

    Do you even think about the shit you type before you type it? I don't understand. Well, let's see. Solar panels make a difference, when used they reduce peoples need to rely solely on mains elec. Which in the end pays for itself, and AFAIK your states elec company will rebate you for any excess you don't use that gets re-directed back into the grid. Wind turbines are worth the noise. Unless you live on a windy hill right near the fucking turbines - I don't see the issue. Sure, we could all have Nuclear powered homes, but eventually we'll run outta space to put the waste. Maybe not in our lifetime, but I plan to have kids, and they'll probably plan to have kids of their own.

    Offer of employment...

    I'm sorry, but could you PLEASE explain what you mean buy "Someone is about to lose lots of money". Do recruitment agencies take a slice of the pie in a employee contract or something? Is that why the recruitment guy is so pushy etc? Labour Hire company's make around $11 for every hour that their employee works and up to $30p/h when overtime kicks in, obviously Super comes out of that, but it's still a hefty profit if they can keep someone permanently employed. I'm not sure how different a recruitment agency is, but I'd assume it's similar. So you can see why they are rabid about keeping staff on their books.

    [ding ding] Round Three for Brisbane

    what happened? get pix? No pics sorry. Lighting was striking the Q1 Tower down the road. I've never seen or heard lighting that close before. I found an old pic, not taken by me though. I live across the road from those cranes. From the rumbling in the distance it sounds like it's coming back for more.

    Ditched once more.

    The problem with friends is that you have expectations of them. And when they don't live up to your expectations, you get disappointed. Live your own life, and when friends do have time to do things with you, consider it a bonus. And yes, it used to piss me off too.

    Masked Lapwings (aka Plovers)

    Every flat piece of grass in QLD seems to have a pissed-off Plover family camping out in it. They even set-up in a construction site I was working at, what a hoot that was.
  14. I can hear it rumbling outside, and she doesn't sound happy. The thunder is shaking the earth in Surfers Paradise, and we're not even under the heavy part.

    Is importing no longer worth it?

    My 360 has been in storage for over 4 months. Which happened to be when all the games I was excited about were released. I live comfortably through this gaming drought with the knowledge that by the time I get my console back I'll be able to import these games on the cheap. So I check out my beloved Play Asia today - for the first time in months - and to my horror it seems to be cheaper just buying them from JB Hifi. Is importing to save money no longer a viable option? Is anybody still importing, if so, where from?
