TPG seems to be pretty good unless you are one of the unlucky ones.

I have also heard good things about SkyMesh and AussieBB.

Can't get NBN at my new place, but it does have VDSL2, so goodbye phone line!

My complaint with TPG was their support, but I've only had to ring once in the last few years and the lady helping me was fantastic.

Spending a breezy 32.5 hours straight at work, after my overnight supervisor called in sick at the last minute and I couldn't get anyone to replace them. Thank god there's a long weekend approaching!
Damn thats a long day.
It really was... I didn't think it would be a big deal, as you do sleep when you do an overnight shift... but now I understand why my Manager doesn't really want me doing that if it can be avoided. 30+ hours without leaving the building, I was sooooo over it by the end.

I started work at 8.30am, I was flying solo all day and the House was really busy so it was non-stop. I didn't have a lunch break, and because the day had been so busy, I took the opportunity to use the evening to get through some paperwork so I was in my office at my desk until 9pm. I didn't sleep overly well as it's been a while since I've stayed at the House overnight, and was awake at 6am the next day and back at my desk by 7am for another full, busy day.

I was absolutely wrecked when I went home last night.

I was raised to not do things I wouldn't want done to myself. And that's why anal sex is off the agenda.

Do you reckon cockroaches or something would eat the polish off of boots? I pulled out my RMs and there's huge bare patches of leather all over them. I certainly didn't put them away like that.

Also don't mix Aussie Broadband Solutions (AusBBS) vs Aussie Broadband (AusBB). AFAIK AusBBS is trash whereas AusBB is quite good.

Anyway, you should always check over @ whirlpool for those types of discussions, it's a goldmine!

I thought it was the other way around. Was always told AusBBS was the good one from Whirlpool. I'm confused.

Feeling like an old man today. We up until after midnight supporting a production release, and my brain is barely functioning today.

Age catches up to you doesn't it? Still better than the alternative!

I'm feeling a bit under the weather myself today, not sure if its the onset of a cold/flu or what but I'll go grab a punnet and start chewing on that to stop it in its tracks if thats what it is.

Nope nevermind, while typing this sneezed about 8 times in a row, probably allergies.

I spent the last 3 nights taking mum to the hospital and between that and work I'm already feeling tired and ready for the weekend. Just hoping I don't doze off at my desk.

You still can't come in to a private house without an invite...

(Note to self - never meet Disco in a public place - and invite him home)

Cold in Brisbane too but I went out last night and will stay home tonight. It'll be my first full night in all week.

I'm just hoping the rain tomorrow doesn't hit early. Got laundry. No clean PJs.

Good old Firearms Registry..what a cock up of a place that is, the latest drama being posted my renewal form without enough time to actually complete it and post it back - the day after I got it in the post I also got a phone call stating that as I had not returned it in time I would not be able to post it and would need to email it.

Great work.
