Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

In this day and age it seems we aren't allowed to learn from our mistakes. We can't have old tattoos and we can't have said something in a public forum without people being offended many years later and wanting that person to suffer. FFS, why do we have prisons even? Let every criminal big or small ...

Re: What are you watching?

The Jack Ryan series on Amazon goes alright. Only a couple episodes in, but my goodness is it some high budget stuff. Fingers crossed the story lives up to the money they seem to have spent on it. It was quite good, except for a few minor points that I didn't like. Like when Ryan apprehended the br...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Had a blood test done this morning, which I have done fairly frequently these days - I don't know what the lady did but holy snaps, my arm is in agony - aching/throbbing and hurts to lift or move it etc. Hopefully they just grazed the inside and it's nothing to worry about. Recently I wanted to rec...

Considering in 2009 I think the max cost of Bitcoin was less then a cent when it first started, that $13 would have netted you a fortune for sure, especially if you held on to it till Dec 2017 where it sold for $20k each... but who did that?

Re: Ant Man and the Wasp

I saw this today... pretty good, pretty funny but I felt, especially after seeing it, the trailer has given a little too much away. Still, a very entertaining movie. There are two scenes after the credits, one just after the main credits and a small one after the final credits. Spoiler to follow, do...

It's not about whether it is for charging or for data... adding USB ports to a lounge is a way to date it.

Steam Mop from Kmart. Apparently rated as 3rd best on Choice, which is good because it was only $45 compared to the $220 cost of the best rated one...

Also, FTTH with a good provider is better overall ;)
Yeah but who's got an actual FTTH connection and not some bastardization version of it? If you're in the right neighbourhood, or even on the right side of the street you're lucky enough to have it, meanwhile the rest of Aus gets screwed.

My internet was out yesterday and today ( no, not NBN, don't have that yet - but I suppose this could be considered a test for the future when I get it ).

Sounds like he's looking for a common enemy/scapegoat to cover for the NBN being shit.

Re: New Spawn movie

When I was 14 years old, it was my favourite film. Though I'll never go back and watch it again because I'm sure either it's aged terribly, or I've aged terribly, and that nostalgic fondness will disappear. The thing I hated most about it was the clown thing that John Leguizamo played... that spoil...
