"the network is running un-regenerated on all links including the Adelaide-Perth connections" That is seriously good kit! Now why cant we get decent fiber to the house in this country if a telco backbone can do that ? For once, "build it and they will come" is true aside from pr0n. Love to able to stream the few movies I deem worthy of passing attention or catch up with what passes for TV when it suits me. It is a long way into town for a mere 2.5 hours of amusement. As it is, more mass media is getting skipped because the add breaks are so frequent and prolonged I struggle to perceive the "story" I was intending to view. Oh, and having a life means I cant be bothered watching lowest common denominator bogan crap either. And the dreary waffle of recycled marxists rabbiting on as intellectuals is not an alternative, even on ABC.
ElReg is a necessary part of ones mental life support in these benighted days.
