Online Kiwis maybe feeling Oz censor trickledown

Big Pete
FAIL

just a routing issue

As the great Aussie firewall has yet to be implemented. the legislation hasn't even been presented to Parliament yet, let alone been passed into law. So it's really unlikely that there's anything being blocked for anyone.

Though the story does make a very valid point, what will happen regarding New Zealand Internet users whose ISPs route their traffic through Australian systems?.

Oz bank thinks it's 2016

Big Pete

I think you nailed it

the fact that the software thought it was 2016 instead of 2010 makes me think that it's interpreting 10 as hexadecimal instead of decimal.

Someone's gonna get nailed for this.

Aussie Sex Party in evangelist head-to-head

Big Pete
Alien

where would we be

without Danny Nalliah and the Catch Fire Ministries, these guys give crazy people a bad name. they see evil everywhere.

I love this quote from their website.

"When she was a small girl, he told her that he had a surprise for her birthday. He blind folded her and told her to cut the cake. After cutting, her blind fold was removed and she was horrified to see that she had cut through the neck of a baby."

classic stuff indeed.

As there's no evil everywhere tag i'll have to make do with the ET tag.

Cyclists offered cut-price shag at German brothel

Big Pete

@Do you get another discount

"on top if you come in a jiffy?"

They do have a 15 minute 30 € or 25 € if you come on a bike/bus (nudge nudge). That would suit me as i don't believe in wasting time.

Run the site through google translate and the second last extras option looks interesting, though best not mention the war.

Unless you've tried the Ambilight feature for a while i can't see how you can comment.

We had a member of parliament with the name Richard Face, see link: http://tinyurl.com/6qke8w

I also knew a guy named Richard Head, So you have to ask, what were their parents thinking.

I bet neither used the shortened, Dick, version of their first name.

I bet school was hell.

Oz admits $85m p0rn filtering FAIL

Big Pete
Black Helicopters

Buying votes

This has very little to do with protecting children, and everything to do with locking in the vote of the family first party in the upper house, so the new Labor Govt can get their legislation passed.

On the low uptake of the previous govt's filter, most of us are just not interested, or have made other arrangements.
