I had a friend who ordered something from the US, which made to to Australia and then was promptly sent to Hawaii.. who sent it back to Australia, who sent it to Hawaii again, who sent it back to Australia before it was delivered.

The thing that fucks with my mind is that it's looking like it will arrive "on time", which means that the shipping day estimate INCLUDED 3 wasted days intentionally.

I am of the arm-chair opinion it's just a muck up on the tracking site. I doubt that they would seriously send it from vic to nsw to vic and then back to NSW (same for from aus back to hawaii back to aus to hawaii and back)

Probably not the same thing that happened with your thing Neko but recently had a bloke come in to pick up some freight we shipped down from Darwin to our town in WA for him, it was way later than he expect because the company he used to get it from Sydney sent it to Darwin via Adelaide, when it got it to Darwin someone in their depot saw the WA part of the address and decided it should go through Perth so it went back to Adelaide then to Perth and someone in their Perth depot saw that it would be quicker to go out of Darwin as we live in the top end so they sent it back Adelaide to Darwin and it was given to us...

When I first looked at it, I thought it was some new fangled (yeah I'm getting older, I said fangled - deal with it 8) ) addition to the iphone groupies, but googling the name, shows that it is a camera itself but then you can use any smartphone as a view finder for it. Ok, cool idea if not a little expensive... $1099AUD

My issue is this image they use on their website to help promote the device :

Image

Cinematic Weddings... I can see that.              Adrenaline pumping action sure, why not.              Inspiring exploration and "moments" in life, ok the advertising is getting a little thick, but I can accept that as well.              Perfect Selfies.... wait, what? What sort of conceited individual spends over $1000 on a device to help improve their selfie pics???

Oh, an iphone user of course... :p

I'm going to buy tickets in Mater (I think it was Mater, anyway) as they are ruffling off one of the South Yarra apartments from The Block.

I like how you get a discount the more tickets you buy.

This is the one I'm entering: http://www.mslottery.com.au

Of course I've never won a thing in all the years I've been playing :(

Did you really just pay $6 for each of those when they're readily available at just about any asian store in the country?

I've only ever found the shitty ""Shin" ramen ones (these ones: http://www.nongshimusa.com/our-products ... hin-ramyun ), I can't find anything else with different flavours/noodles etc. This is in the Asian grocer as well.

Just buy packs of those noodles to cook in your own sauces and stuff. It will change your life. You get infinitely more flavor variety and a lot more freedom in what you eat. So many meals lately I've been bashing together quick noodle soups, now that I've found a decent recipe. Also, you don't have to worry about the noodle packs having certain preservatives - some of those ramen noodle packs really don't like me.

Nothing all that exciting. Fuel price hitting the low end of the cycle in Brisbane so I topped up.

Okay only a day late so i guess i shouldn't bitch.


* mouse mat
* keyboard (last one is like 15 years old)
* wireless card
* lotsa fans

Image

Installed fans
removed cooler
cleaned cooler fans
reversed fans






result:

Shits still hot cap'n (fnq can suck my nuts)
Also takes slightly linger to boot for some reason, i think it's talking to the keyboard.

Sweet, shiny new things! Sucks that the fans haven't helped tho - is your place not airconditioned?

Disco's in awe of my wild behaviour whilst he's away... what did I do? I went to Kmart :lol:

We don't have a pantry, so we have to use a standard base cabinet for food storage and because it's low and deep stuff literally gets lost in there for years - so I bought some organisers, cleaned it all out and sorted it into tubs. Also got some acrylic soft drink dispenser thingies for the bottom shelf of the fridge. Kmart's giving Howards Storage World a run for their money, I tell you!

and a new lamp, plant and jar (jar's from Target tho - it's for dog treats) to jazz up our new office space:

I might steal that acrylic container idea, i have a stand up cupboard instead of a pantry and anything more than 6 inches from the from is just gone.
