    Terror attack in NZ

    Hardly surprising. The police will be looking at all the connections he has.

    Project Binky

    To put it mildly.

    how crap is this government ?

    May be left compared to the LNP dropkicks but the ALP is hardly a left wing party these days. Both major parties have shifted quite a bit to the right since the 1970s at least.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    Good god, what will they think of next?

    Sounds about right for this Government. Make up numbers then claim some ridiculous result from those numbers. Buggers are completely useless if not outright corrupt.

    You missed drug induced (intentional or accidental) haze.

    Project Binky

    Woo another Binky Vid is out. In episode 23 of Project Binky we fix a hole in the sump, modify a radiator, finish a lot of the wiring and make a bracket with brackets for the interior light and dashcam. We test the electrical circuits, and there's some shenanigans in our Subaru for good measure.

    i see dead people

    And now we have to add Andre Previn to the list as well. https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-17342940

    Yep that about sums up the complete incompetence, corruption and downright sleaziness of the current federal government.

    Pets and animals

    WTF is it with cats and cardboard boxes? No pets here, my last dog died a long time ago and I never bothered getting a replacement. Odd I suppose as I do live on a farm so you would think a dog would be a given. Neighbours got a few though including a dumb as shit Fox Hound. Nice enough dog but jeez not got 2 brain cells to rub together.

    NBN - Is it too expensive?

    Grr I knew Zebra did not seem right. Yes Zeph and DG. Good to know they are doing well and I know he was pretty grim about the possibility of losing FTTH for FTTN.

    Please make sure it is also disconnected at the first socket or boundary point so you are not connecting to all that copper running up the street.

    NBN - Is it too expensive?

    Whatever happened to Zebra? As for the copper vs fibre. You know the funny thing is since Deloraine went FTTP I have had no work that was actually directly related to FTTP issues. Sure still get the usual router and local network issues but these are all customer side problems and are a lot rarer than with ADSL, I assume at least partly because there is no phone line voltage spikes over fibre to wreck the router. Even NBN realise FTTN is shite otherwise why would they say you need to have more than 5 dropouts a day before they say there is a fault? http://blog.jxeeno.com/dropouts-acceptable-on-nbn-new-fttn-network/ And of course the whole "FTTP will require people to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to rewire their house" bullshit has been show to be exactly the opposite. People are paying technicians to come in and remove extraneous phone points and even run new internal phone lines in an effort to get better speeds out of their crappy FTTN connections. https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/thread/2598431

    NBN - Is it too expensive?

    So rural gets less speed than urban because they won't get the millimetre frequencies that are needed for the higher speeds? I assume because us rural yokels don't need bandwidth? As usual your ignorant urban attitude is showing through. And there are a whole shitload of people who don't get anywhere near that on FTTN, a technology that you kept on banging on about how it was perfectly fine and would be all we need. Well the lie about that has been shown already with NBN's move to FTTC as FTTN was failing in so many locations due to the abysmal copper condition (something else you repeatedly denied was an issue). My comment about stupidly wrong on that article refers to When patently they are not using older network technologies. They are using a tiny tiny part of the old network infrastructure to fit a newer technology.

    NBN - Is it too expensive?

    Love this bit So how will this work in rural areas then? Me thinks the big towers and lower frequencies will be here to stay as I can't see telcos running fibre to individual farm houses so they can fit a micro-cell so that residents 5g phone and internet will work. And this Is just so stupidly wrong I just don't know what to say.

    Yes it is, very cool.

    Help my Windows 7 loader keeps rebooting.

    Good god a 9 year bump? Seriously? As for the problem according to Asus the CPU is not supported by that mobo for some reason.

    Agree with you on the beaches, stunning, but jeezuz the water is as cold as.

    High voltage musings

    Certainly seems to be. Years ago had one of our private power poles hit and it took down all the wires on the pole as well as splintering the top of the pole. At the end of the line (about 200 metres) it didn't touch the water supply pump. In the cowshed (about 200 metres in the other direction) took out some ceramic fuses and bakelite light switches blew an electric fencer off the wall (actually snapped the plastic mounting bracket) and at my house (another hundred metres away) destroyed a router and the Telstra ISDN modem but nothing else. The Telstra tech who came to replace the modem said he had seen strikes in town that seemed to do no damage to the nearby houses but a house a block or two away had major electronics damage. Weird alright. Oh and cop a load of this
