So I've got a bit of a problem dealing with rabbits that I wouldn't mind hearing a second opinion on.

Guy I know has rabbits that've dug a warren under his garden shed foundation right next to the house. Ideally what you'd do is dig/rip up the warrens, maybe shoot any rabbits you see getting around after that, maybe introduce one or the other of the viruses if it doesn't look like they're present. Generally that works pretty well.
If you can't rip the warren you'd typically gas it and then close up any entrances as best you can so other rabbits don't just take up residence afterwards.

Can't rip this one obviously and gassing it seems like a pretty terrible idea that close to where someone lives. And there's no real point doing anything if you can't destroy the home, other rabbits will absolutely move in.

So what I was thinking (because it's a foundation that's getting undermined) would be best would be to get a crowbar and a wheelbarrow full of crusher dust and just ram as much of it as I can into the warren. Sure they might dig it out, but I figure get enough of it in there and stay on top of it if it does get reopened and sooner or later they're going to lose that battle. It'll certainly take them longer to dig it out than it does to fill it in.

Problem with that is burying rabbits alive isn't the most humane thing. If it works first time, or at all I guess, that's what'll happen. But I can't really think of another way to do something about it.

Gas is the way to go, from my understanding the gas is safe to use around dwellings as long as you're away for a few hours.

Can't imagine clogging up the warren would work, they'd just dig new exits.

I come from the farmer point of view... where rabbits roaming about all need to die.
And I don't really have a problem with burying them alive... I was going to say pour some cement down the holes. That way they can't dig it out.
Could always setup rabbit traps in front of the holes to catch as many as possible before doing this as well.

Again, I hate wild rabbits... love pet ones... hate wild ones...

When we had per rabbits, the neighborhood dogs wandered into our yard and killed them.

Are neighborhood dogs an option?

I don't think some dogs would successfully wipe out a wild rabbit warren. I know some rabbits have set up a successful warren in the lion paddock at Monarto zoo...

God damn it. I might have to have a proper look at what gassing them would entail. I know if I did it myself I'd need to get a license because I'm not the landholder and you need to have a lockable cage on the back of your ute (not in the same space as people) to transport it. Maybe I can get the council to get involved and get them to do it. They've been on a bit of a rabbit eradication kick lately.

I'm not so sure about them digging new exits if I did a decent job of it. They way they dig is to push the dirt out of the burrow in front of them like a little bulldozer. That'd be tricky going from the inside out, I don't actually know if they're capable. I think ultimately it might even help me fill in the whole burrow if they can do it.

Got an assignment due today that I intended to spend most of the day working on to finish and polish up a bit. Annd my PC has boot issues. What is this shit? It's like an urban legend has come to life.
Not a huge deal though. It's all backed up online and I'm sure I can still find a way. But still, I didn't think things like this actually happened in real life.

Edit: Fixed it. Swapped the sata plug on the motherboard my HDD was using to a different one and everything seems fine now. Not the first time I've had to do this. I can't use the second sata 3 plug my mobo has anymore because of this issue (tested to infinity to diagnose that, was not a fun day) and now one of the sata 2 plugs is doing it.

I don't know what that means, I thought the different types of sata's were separate things. But now one of each are (potentially, it could be the HDD I guess) giving me trouble.

watched some of the IEM yesterday and it's almost as good as the footy and having a live audience improves the atmosphere of the game. pretty tense match ups with the rounds see-sawing at times and I'll probably watch another match this arvo :)

I tried this beer on tap last night on a whim and really liked it, about $7 a schooner, thought I'd check and see what it cost at Dan Murphys.... $120 a carton. Pass.

Had probably the most frustrating visit to a doctor ever. Unhelpful, was up himself, and wasn't interested in hearing about my back and feet pain which I've been dealing with for over a decade. I think he tuned out when I had mentioned I had been seeing an osteo and podiatrist which was probably my fault for doing and should have realised that the standard GP views many other health professions as quacks.

On this client's end though, I just know that most GPs haven't exactly come through with helping me with my health issues in the past whilst the osteos and podiatrists I continue to see deliver results. That's why I'm seeing them in regards to managing my issues. Seems I will continue to do that since this doctor isn't interested in helping and find some other way to get my x-rays done.

If there is anything that my husband has taught me, it's to not be afraid to seek another opinion if you feel your Doctor isn't hearing you or isn't giving you the treatment you feel you deserve.

I have quite a few medical issues relating to hormonal imbalances and other lady-things that you guys don't want or need to hear about, but I tolerated a solid 13 years of 'specialists' who simply dismissed me and didn't take my condition seriously enough, and a GP who didn't think it wise to seek specialist assistance for me when he first detected the disorder when I was in my teens. The outcome of this is that Disco and I are now 4-5 years deep in the battle against infertility - an expensive, emotional and draining road - and the first 3 years of that battle was spent with the only local specialist we have, who couldn't be more disinterested in helping us if he tried.

Disco found and encouraged me to agree to swap to a Professor at Westmead in Sydney, which I almost flatly refused as I was so fucking frustrated with the way I was being dismissed by everyone I saw even though I knew something was not right. Whilst it's slightly inconvenient having a specialist that is a 600km round trip away, the difference it has made having someone who is so passionate about the condition I have, who lived and breathes treating people with it, and who seems to legitimately care about us as people is phenomenal. I've made more progress in the 10 months I've been in his care than I did at any point prior under the care of any other doctor or specialist I've seen. We obviously haven't had the desired outcome yet, but if anyone is going to help us win, it's this guy.

I'm really sorry you had that experience, but consider finding another GP. That one just got paid for a service he really didn't deliver.

Thanks Cherry.

Yeah, I totally agree with you and Disco on this. Health professionals are (unfortunately) very much a branded service/product and I need to find the right ones for me. So far I've got myself a good Osteo and Naturopath who want to spend the time figuring out my issues. Can't say the same about that last GP who didn't want to listen to what I had to say. If anything, it felt like he just wanted me out the door so he could start his long weekend.

Unluckily for that GP/practice, I'm quite vocal about my experiences and have given them an appropriate Google review. Seems I'm not the only one to give them a low rating either.

I hope you and Disco get some good results with your specialist too.

Our medical profession is in a sorry state when evidence based practitioners aren't interested in the patient, while proponents of pseudoscience are patient focused. It adds to my suspicions that the rise of alternate medicine is a reflection of the way people want to be treated rather than an ignorance of the underlying science (or lack thereof in the case of alternate medicine).

I'll let you know how I find it in a week's time. The paper work and reading through countless applications will probably not be all that enjoyable but I'm interested to see what it's like to be the interviewer for a change.

Any reason to see Gal Gadot's pretty face is a good one.

Though I feel bad for her (maybe former) publicist.

Was freaking out just then wondering why my internet was slow and things weren't loading up again. Seems that my tablet behind me is doing an update :angry-banghead:

Old phone cable to our house fell from the street post today. Have NBN so it's not needed, but unsure what to do.

Guess I'll have to contact Telstra or something. Anybody know if they have a contact email address? I don't feel like being on hold for an hour for something that doesn't matter too much.

Craaaaazy weather down in Hobart today and last night. I had to land in it, flight from Sydney, easily the fucking worst flight I've ever been on. The rain was perfectly horizontal and so thick it was just a sheet like we were a submarine and the nasty great bit turbulence... holy fucking shit. The drive home from the airport was deadly too, did around 50km on a 110kmh highway because I couldn't see anything and there was detritus all over the place.

End of days!
