    how crap is this government ?

    Nope doesn't happen. I grew spuds and swedes for fresh market and the last year I grew spuds for that company they had installed brand new equipment to automatically grade the produce as it went through the factory. So instead of a dozen people grading the veges you had one bod keeping half an eye on the line in case the machine missed a bad spud or it actually broke. Packing was pretty automated too so nowhere else in the production chain for them to go. On the picking side, spuds still need a tractor operator and at least two people on the harvester, but that's waaaaaaay down from the dozens farmers used to employ to hand pick the spuds after the tractor mounted spud lifter had been through. Swedes where still hand picked when we did them (crew of about a dozen on a 13 acre paddock) but now are all machine harvested and graded apparently. As for the smartarse unskilled labour comments by some, they might consider it unskilled but from doing some myself and working with other pickers etc it is actually a skilled job, just a different skill set to sitting on your arse in an office. A good example is the Swedes. A new picker or slacker would do 2 half tonne boxes a day if lucky. Someone with a bit of skill and knowledge could do 3 or 4 boxes a day and the swedes in the box would be trimmed better. So don't blather on to me about "unskilled" labour.

    Could the Democrats please wake up ?

    China does not equal communism. Even if China became fully Democratic in the Western sense (I would put this about as likely as our sun going nova next week) I am sure it's leaders and bureaucracy would be still quite capable of playing the long game.

    Does them a lot of good if their homes are under water doesn't it? Every time I think the current clowns have hit rock bottom they seem to come up with some way to increase the cringe factor and confirm they haven't got a single bloody clue about anything.
  4. Which reminds me must get a new jaffle maker. Sister did this once although the recipe called them Boston beans. She said never again, a hell of a lot of work just for some up market baked beans.

    Problems with the 737MAX ?

    Possibly mean internal cabin lining panels since the complaints are about the quality control? Just a guess.

    The IvanTheTerrible buttf#cknowhere exploration thread

    That looks as uncomfortable as all getout (says the man who drove round most of Australia in a Mini Moke). But you certainly would have time to take in the scenery at tractor speed.
  7. Is baked beans on toast with cheese a breakfast, lunch, or dinner meal? Whatever you want. Chuck a couple of poached or fried eggs on there and it's even better. Yum. Most appropriate? Possibly brekky and lunch. For dinner definitely add the eggs and even a bit of bacon, fried or grilled ham or a sausage or two with some green tomato pickles to top it off. Yummo.

    Sound card died again

    There is that too. I went through a succession of Creative and other brand sound cards over the years, but for the last couple of PCs I have just stuck with the onboard Realtek HD audio which seems perfectly fine to me. Speaker and headphone quality have a much bigger effect on audio quality these days.

    Ye considering the LNP uses blue normally it is definitely odd that they used AEC purple for those signs.

    And apparently that slimy toad Barnady Joyce is struggling to make ends meet. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-07-29/barnaby-joyce-says-hes-struggling-on-211-thousand-dollar-income/11357798 Bloody prick.

    Sound card died again

    Frankly except for specialised uses I find the modern onboard audio solutions to be good enough for almost everything theses days. Oh gawd. No wonder you are killing things. What about case fans? Do you have any actual airflow through your PC case? Intake fan at the front and exhaust fan at the rear or top? or do you shut them off too?

    Then to now

    Jeez I am, particularly a BEV ute. Instant full torque, quiet, economical and no more having to visit the service station. Pity I just can't afford any sort of replacement vehicle so I have to keep my old diesel ute running for the time being.
