    iTunes 11

    A total mess in many respects if I'm being honest... shame there is no software that you can root/hack to work with better solutions, reminds me fondly of when "final cut pro" changed to "iMovie Deluxe" that was also a bad one for the play book.

    Skyfall review of sorts!

    Bonds current adventure, known as the intrique worthy - SKYFALL was... disappointing. In this segment of the franchise we start to see Bond fall apart not only personally but inside of his professional career as a agent for the government, the way in which that decline is portrayed within the feature is of fair stature and provides a fair kick along for the storyline.There was one major issue that I had with Skyfall, It always seemed to rely on a trigger point to align the story back with it's true arc so that events that had taken place would make sense to the viewer, I really feel as though the film did not flow and that in many circumstances they struggled to fill 'out' the story so instead they masked it with unesscessarily lenghty scenes with 'slow & dim' dialouge which honestly seemed kind of pointless. I can't think of why director Sam Mendes has messed with the well known and successful bond formula, lots of action sequences with big flashly explosions and daring stunts, don't get me wrong they were present in Skyfall but the overwash of dialouge when compared as a ratio achieved by previous entries (amount of action scenes vs. dialouge) was a little enlighting to say the least! *MINOR SPOILERS* Daniel Craig put on a very credable performance as a run down & emtional bond who feels betrayed by his organisation and prefers to stay under the assumption that he's dead after taking a significant fall from a moving train, I think it really gets difficult to watch an on-screen character which has been so strong over previous entries all of the sudden become a weak & unconfident man who Is unable to achieve the required targets that are asked of him.I understand the reasoning behind taking this route to provide the audience with some variety over the original and well worn 'formula' for bond films but I think that unfortunetly we may have exposed this side of bond a little too much which makes things drag along in certain cirumstances where the scene should have been edited to make the quick flash action occur quicker somewhat catching the audience by suprise with some well worked editing but no such luck as there was nothing like this present. I am at a loss as to what else to say honestly... I really did expect something different from what was shown before me some 48 hours ago. This is my 2 cents, thanks for reading.

    Yeah, I guess that those cheaper prices do come with some pitfalls haha! Perhaps because they are useless?:P Seems an odd thing to do assuming Nuke is correct about TPG not broadcasting their DNS servers properly. Pretty shitty thing to do to there customers as Automatic DNS servers would not be difficult to implment and I'm sure the outlay would be minimal. edit: Everything's still working awesome this morning, YouTube, FB, the lot.

    No problem mate, glad it was a simple fix. You may need to do the same on any other computers, as it seems your modem isn't getting this info or isn't passing it onto the PC properly.. As to the cause of that, I'm not sure, it's a job for another day... Yes there is obviously an underlying issue at hand... but again man thanks for sticking around and helping us out much appreciated. Like I've stated networking isn't a strong suit of mine :) Don't you love how you can rack your brain and It can be the most simplistic of fixes haha! Is there a topic for voting people a 'thumbs up' for helping, similar to that off the thread in trademart?

    I have called TPG and plainly speaking got F***** around on multiple occasions... I am hesitant to try another modem or resetting the current one as it was a F-PITA to get working in the first place. Poison you are doing a great job man thanks for your help so far matey!!!! Don't you put the basic tpg DNS in the browser address bar? (This is what I meant). I will post a SS in a sec.

    I would leave IP on automatic, I assume you get this address from your router via DHCP. Just set the DNS and see if it fixes things. Primary DNS 203.12.160.35 Secondary DNS 203.12.160.36 then open command prompt and type ipconfig /flushdns and see how you go... I only have TCP/IP in propertes (No v4 or v6), when I try to enter the standard DNS into the browser I get N.o.t.h.i.n.g tried flushdns by itself to see if that would work but to no avail...

    your work laptop may be configured specifically for your work network, especially if you work on a domain. I wouldn't change anything here.. I assume you don't have permission as you're not an admin. With your gaming PC, what do you mean there are no settings, is it all set to automatic like above? If so, try setting it manually with the address I provided in the last post. Correct no admin permission things locked down pretty tight... When I opened the properties for the adapter there is no option to config the IVP's? Wait.. Found it, tucked away like a bastard, everything is set to auto with nothing looking out of the ordinary. What if I entered the IP, subnet etc. manually then used the standard TPG DNS to confiqure? Its strange cause when you use the website name the ping fails, yet use the DNS and it works fine!

    if I type 69.171.224.32 into my browser, i also get referred to facebook. check this out at your end. When I ping tested the IP it Timed Out on all 4 attempts BUT when entered into the browser it worked with no problems.

    Yes your quite right, I do believe its the equipment that I'm using here. No, I am unable to access YouTube or Facebook currently as of right now. I have read somewhere else about people having DNS issues with TPG? This could be the culprit possibly, Could you please explain more about 'browse by the IP'? Do you mean making changes to the address, subnet etc. Sorry dude, I am a complete networking noob never interested me. Talk to me about anything hardware and I keep you busy for hours lol...

    Ali, Certainly not on the cap limit, only used 30% of the 100gb for on-peak and barely anything on the off, so therefore no shaping either. I will seek those specs out for you.

    Hi Poison, It works 'rarely' and when it does I'm lucky to get one page to load on Facebook or 30 sec of a YouTube vid. It's mega frustrating!
