Re: Federal Election May 18, 2019!

Okay, let's ditch the Nissan Leaf and talk about the Hyundai Kona. It will travel just over 400kms per charge, on a 100kW DC Charger it will take an hour to charge back to 100% - on a 1000km journey, sure we stop for breaks, but there ain't no one travelling that far that's fannying about for an hou...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - Autumn 2019

Oh, and I gave her reassurance that nothing was going to go up her you know what (despite my busy hands probably going around that area). That got me in the good books. So, I'm trying to envisage how this works but it's not quite coming together for me... you met her nine days ago, you decided to b...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - Autumn 2019

After a week of battling illness post-holiday, I was in desperate need of an outing this morning... so after cooking us eggs on toast with maple bacon for breakfast, my favourite human drove us across to the village of Canowindra where we visited Coco Harvest. which is adorable: https://i.imgur.com/...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - Autumn 2019

Ew. In need of some casual 'jumpers' for weekends throughout the colder months, I threw out my two hoodies when we did a wardrobe cleanout as I'd had them since before I met Disco meaning they were about 10 years old and had lived their best life already. Given how well those ones lasted, picked up ...

Re: Federal Election May 18, 2019!

Even so, unless my car charges to full in the same time it takes me to throw in a tank of fuel, I'm not and will never be interested. I don't believe the technology is anywhere near sustainable enough for regional living as it currently stands. Currently there's about 750kms of road without a single...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

I've been adventuring with my favourite human, thought I'd share a few pictures with anyone who is interested: Our first stop was the beautiful Amedee Island, which we accessed via a boat from Noumea - there was a lighthouse, a gift shop, a lovely lunch, some traditional dancing, quite a few sea sna...

Re: Federal Election May 18, 2019!

All reputable sources seem to indicate a typical electric car with a 60kWh battery takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty-to-full with a 7kW charging point. I can't charge my phone in minutes. I'll believe I can fully charge a car from flat to 100% full in "minutes" when I see it.

Re: Federal Election May 18, 2019!

You've missed the point. It doesn't take me 7 hours to refuel my car. If we take the Nissan Leaf as an example, and a trip to visit my parents in Brisbane. A typical road trip there for us takes 12 hours, we only need to refuel once as my car smashes out about 700-800 kilometres to a tank... but let...

Re: Federal Election May 18, 2019!

They are perfectly fine if you live in a city and have no interest in travelling outside of that city by car - plug your car in at night to charge (average time for full charge from flat is 7 hours on the Nissan Leaf), have a 300-350km range per charge (again using the Leaf as an example). That's fi...

Re: Federal Election May 18, 2019!

Is there one page you can go to that lays out what each party is 'promising'? I have no idea who to vote for and in keeping with my 2019 goal of being an adultier adult, I need to suss out the options.

Hope these ones last for you two. Mum and dad had to do the same on their last trip.

I have the exact same suitcase in a smaller size for business tr...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - March 2019

We've just been on a cruise and my suitcase almost gave up the ghost, with the zippers being stuffed. Having big suitcases without spinner wheels is annoying, and given we're planning a few trips including Fiji and Europe in the next few years I thought I'd have a look online. Found the larger versi...

I hope your pets avoid this trend!

Unlike standard water heaters, there's obviously no reserve of hot water stored up which ...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - March 2019

March has been an expensive month... 20+ year old hot water system shat itself, Disco and I are only able to have 4-5 min showers if both need to shower, so we upgraded to continuous flow and have been steadily draining the limited water resources of our drought-affected community since: https://i.i...

Get something like "RedHOT Spray", spray it on a piece of fabric and use the fabric to cover the area kitty scratches - it's essentially a pepper spray - kitty gets it on their paws, go to lick it off, dislikes the pepper spray, thinks "fuck, I don't think I'll do that again" and job done.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Feeling pissed off with P&O at the moment, they called yesterday and said as we were returning guests they would like to offer us an upgrade to a mini-suite. I've always wanted to stay in a mini-suite but never been willing to part with the dollars, so I thought it was my lucky day. I said yes immed...
