I just want decent speed
I don't really care if its the NBN or a private supplier, I just want decent download speeds. And I want decent upload speeds for my slingbox too.
not just the updates.. what about the hotfixes
I have had to install a number of hotfixes to resolve various issues which our environment experiences and there are hotfixes for. As far as I am aware hotfixes arent available via the normal WSUS and have to be downloaded / deployed manually.
I was hoping for an SP2 to roll all these into one, along with the updates..
too many bloody ads
the only problem with FTA getting all the sport is the Adverts every 60 seconds.
Ive had reports of Forefront flagging BBC Scotland website as serving blackhole today as well...
$6k / mo
we pay $6k/mo for a 12mb / 12mb unlimited data fiber connection here in sydney...
hoping the NBN will make the same of faster speed link available for a more affordable price.
And if i can get 100mb / 40mb at home for $190/mo, thats a price I am willing to pay.
Foxtel costs me over $100/m as it is. I would rather have the faster speeds and ditch the murdoch TV
surely and iphone battery doesn't last long enough to record an entire movie?
I flew from glasgow to sydney this month, and brought with me a can of Irn Bru. At security, when they were handing out those plastic bags for liquiids, i put my 330ml can in it, as a piss take really. I then placed it in the tray, along with my laptop. It got through security at all 3 of Glasgow, Heathrow and Kuala Lumpur.. I had to laugh.
RE: How to pick a phone
I based my phone purchase on which would run slingplayer (back when it was only availbale for a handful of phones)
I see their page now says they are "Sold Out".. interesting I wonder if its to do with the injunction..
If they do get banned from selling them.. I better get my $169.99 back :P
been using it for ages
My work has been using this for ages.. Its great.. The HIR function is great, lets you migrate from one hardware architecture to another with ease.. The new Exchange component looked good to at the conference I was at recently. Highly recommended
Nuff said ;)
on be too
Had a severe drop in speed and continuous connection drop-outs earlier in the year. Be were great helps, increasing the SNR to stabilse the connection whilst I/they investigated. Turns out the incoming BT line to the house had been damaged and Be had BT replace that free of charge and everyithng went back to normal (15mbit down / 2mbit up)
The extra upstream makes watching my slingboxes a joy.
sylverlight on symbian
they need to make a version for the symbian OS too. My Setanta-i subscription uses silverlight, and Im unable to watch the games on my phone.
been runing the TP since july.. I was a fan of 2007 and 2010 is just building on that. I duab boot ubuntu but I find myself going back to windows for Office.. Openoffice just isnt as good.
ribbon in 2003?
Was it not 2007 that the ribbon appeared?
works fine in australia
been singed in all day and night no interruptions
02 payg ok in aus
not sure if it wasnt working, i hardly ever use it any more, but its working just now
Im on be pro as well, and have almost 2mb upstream. I work abroad a lot, and the upstream is great for being able to grab files etc I need when Im away. Also, Ive got a slingplayer so I can watch my sky when Im away. 10mbit would make it a lot lot better. All legal and legitimate uses for having a high upstream.
