Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Whoever it was is having fun and not doing any harm in the process. That should be encouraged regardless of how old one is.

There was an old guy who used to dance all the time in Rundle Mall. Not really busking, just dancing. He seemed pretty happy.

@Mugsy - probably credit card matching. Big data is very interconnected.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

They complain because it costs a lot for something they "could have done themselves". Reality is they can't, or at least nowhere near the level of quality and speed.

He can say fake news, but can't arrest or kill journalists critical of him, such as in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, or Hungary.
Well not openly at least.

Wanted to get a bit of a sleep in today but neighbours decided to get roof cleaned. Why the fuck is that water compressor so damned loud?

Might be something on Glassdoor as well.

In other news, is it just me or has EB Games actually increased their prices for the Boxing Day sale? eg I bought Spiderman off them for $29 around Black Friday, currently it's on "sale" for $57.

I don't, but I do plan on seeing if lillet blanc makes for an acceptable substitution for red vermouth in a negroni.

Even if it doesn't, I'm still going to drink it.
Could always make a vesper instead ;)

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Unless the tech companies push back properly with something like a boycott, I doubt the legislation will change. Only other thing that might do it is the inevitable massive breach provided they can't blame it on something else.

We get protests out the front regularly. Fortunately we have a back entrance and the windows are well soundproofed.

Yeah the right food helps a lot. The cat stays indoors and only gets indoor cat food - minimal smells. The dog is out during the day and eats whatever, loves to snuggle and fart lots at night.

Re: Show Us Your Latest Purchase - November 2018

It's a balance between the smell and cleanup vs kitty killing wildlife and getting into fights.

For me the cat can stay inside so I don't have to deal with vets often and whatever damage to the neighborhood birds. No smell from the litter tray in the rest of the house 99% of the time.

Re: Show Us Your Latest Purchase - November 2018

It was always a terrible but entertaining idea. I can't imagine trying to really move it anywhere, never mind the rivers you'd also have to bulldoze a path through trees, houses, hills... Then there is this enormous target for artillery and bombers, with the previously mentioned bulldozed path point...

Re: Headphone recommendations

Just a general suggestion, but you can get clip on mics if you like a pair of headphones but don't like the equivalent headset.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Anyway, well done Otto for reaching a key milestone. Be sure to inform the workplace (I think it's the workplace) that your HECS is paid off else, from memory, they will keep paying and you won't get that overpayment back till your next tax return. That reminds me I gotta chase up on my own tax ret...

Technically correct. If he didn't vacate the seat there wouldn't have been a by-election. Can't blame Scomo and co for the loss, they are perfect and never wrong.
