Turnbull is Abbott's Bitch
Sort of feel sorry for him after the knifing in the back and then been given the job of attacking a proposal (NBN) that I think he belives in but that does not retract from the Title.
Outsourcing their own job... isn't that what all shit kicking middle managment do?
Space Shuttle was an in-city delivery van
I dont think the Shuttle gave anyone access to "deep space". It was a LEO delivery van.
Hi Your a clown. The old system was a state created monopoly. How did you miss the 800 pound gorillia in your fantasy "private industry" assestment?? The cost for FTTP is in the cost for NBN so is the time taken to deploy - its not exponentially more its already factored in
The 800 pound Gorilla in the room
In the future in-car wanking is the norm
These sports are funded in part by the broadcast rights they sell. Optus were not paying for this. How can they in any way justify having this as a value add for their customers? Defending optus on technical grounds is a joke.
Paris because she knows about having content broadcasted without permission or payment
Re: This entire concept is such horseshit ...
Horseshit on your horseshit. What you are pointing out is an energy problem only. It's obviously not an impossible obstacle.
I will listen to a group of people with a proven track record of innovation who hire a group of people with a proven track record in the industry first. I imagine they are aware of transfer orbit issues... what do you think? Besides it's not costing me any cash - they are putting up thier own dough.
If this makes a scenario possible as shown in the movie Outland I am all for it!
I want to be a space miner mummy!
Clive Palmer has the early mail
on this. As long as he makes a buck at any ones expense.
He will be linking this decision to the Greens and their puppet masters at rockefeller, making a lot of noise to look good for his Chinese masters
it has to be said with the right pronounciation
the closest a Pomie Bastard can come to understanding how to say Pommie Bastard is to imagine Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister) using the phrase as an expletive and/or just before phone booking said individual.
What part of
Down Under, Darwin to Adelaide, Stuart Highway, "Oz" did you miss or was that a reflexive "my countries highway load is bigger than your countries highway load"?
Back on topic: the Bruce Highway is quite a shitty road - as a citizen of the Premier state I was shocked to see what a goat track the banana benders had let it become. It's like the Pacific Highway in the early 80's. Meeting some heavy mining equipment on those can be more annoying as it usually means long delays following something that looks like the arm off an up-scaled mega transformer. No chances to overtake crumbling shoulder on "Highway 1"
...such a wasted 70's dream... yawn
God I hate the current state of Australian politics
Jobs for unwanted Shuttle Astronauts
surely they can get jobs as mini van drivers... just without the "Glorified" bit at the start
but the Space Shuttle as a tender to the ISS was a failed vision that should have been scrapped before it's inception or just after Challenger.
Then the money could have been spent on real research and space ventures rather than a glorified cross city transporter with it's destination a shabby caravan park in the sky.
The de-orbit should at least be spectacular
dude did you miss the bit
about low income earners, whether they be renters or not, getting tax breaks to cover the rise in electricity costs? I agree in part with what your saying but have a look at the bigger picture.
How along untill
the app is banned and thier interface becomes the new "skin" for the apple one?
The sound is there because
the average Joe's (politicians, funding managers) attention span is way too short to watch 5 minutes of space film without big breasted aliens or light sabres and quick! look over there !1! a flashing animation with a celebrity in it... right .. something... mumbles I think it looks fairly convoluted.
I thought NASA had put up a prize for a rocket that could hover, land then hover and take off again in the last few years? This looks to vastly more complicated than the entrants in that contest. Did they laugh at Carmack and others attempts and throw down this challenge with the bold "watch us do it with a nuclear powered rover on f''ing mars you losers!" statement?
Some of my best plans came after a few beers so cheers to the NASA team.
the hysteria in the local rags is at fever pitch. I am waiting for Abbot to print out the report and start waving it around in Parliament in a similar fashion to Moses coming down off the mountain with the Ten Commandments. If only Conjob wasn't such a dickhead.
yeah but what about the Mad mOnk?
Tony "I see people reading emails on their laptop's at airports using Wifi all the time Therefore: broadband can be delivered to all Australia via wireless" Abbot is still doing everything in his ignorant partisan power to derail the NBN so its not a given - particularly not given how selfish the Australian people are as a mob. If it was up to the mob nothing would be spent on infrastructure other than middle income handouts and fireworks competitions with each others capital city.
Looking back at this sensationalist piece from same author:
I will take this latest article with an ocean of salt.
Ahhh there's my coat - time to leave the soap box hall
How can you be so blind? the only compelling reason is so Murdoch benefits? Amazing thought process there.
I live in the center of the nations capital. ADLS2+ is not an option because the copper cannot support it. ADSL1 will connect unreliably at a max of 300k. Can you tell me when this will be fixed by Telstra?
I know many people living on the Gold Coast who cannot get ADSL - that's the fastest growing region in Australia if you were not aware. When will this be fixed by Telstra? I know people in every captial city who cannot get ADSL anything. When will this be fixed by Telstra?
People want to pay for the service but they cannot get it. Capitalism has failed and will continue to fail in this industry, in this country.
the compelling reason for fiber to the home is to replace the outdated copper network owned by a monopoly that will NEVER be upgraded to be broad band capable. Is it that hard to get the big picture?
The NBN is a more recent effort to provide essential services like the sewers, telephony, roads rail etc
Ahh the conservatives started it
I believe the conservative party of Australia actually initiated the filter. This whore here: http://www.aph.gov.au/senate/senators/homepages/senators.asp?id=2M6
That's why there appears to be no opposition to it.
At least Gillard is an atheist - so sick to death of religious leaders in this supposedly secular state.
Dunno about that
last year I walked into the crater north of Kagoshima to confirm that Bond's mission had been successful and tasted the water. Heaps of sulphur vents but it wasn't hot. It may have cooled down since then though.
Auto Gyros were also used in Mad Max2 or Road Warrior movie. The guy that built the 2 used in Max2, and I think 3, lived around the block from me. he built them in his garage. I used to cut through his yard as a short cut till his neighbour got a large and very angry dog.
as a "developer' phone the user can do what they want to the phone
thats not so Bad
Last time I looked when functionality didn't work useing the latest public build of Firefox after logging in to a big Australian bank it offered me this advice:
To access Balance Sheet you will need to be using a Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6 browser or above, and a Windows based operating system.
Select proceed if you would like to upgrade your browser.
If Oracle bends over does the Sun still shine?
Mines got 6.5
I bought it from Clove and shipped to Oz mid december last year. Had 6.5 pre loaded. I have turned off the Samsung UI. I liked it but it did lag. Now using SPB. Great phone, keyboard is awesome. I have been using so called Smart phones since 2003 and this is the best so far.
The penguin because I wished Android was a little more mature.
$$ title is suckage
Does Facebook make any money to pay for this?
Borg only if 7of9 returns
If she's still got it include her if not find someone else (if possible) with the same packaging.
No plot other than 7of 9 controlling a Tron style virtual reality where Shats, playing the original Kirk, is put through unwinnable life or death scenarios but unfortunately for him, luckily for the audience, he is brutally killed often.
How did 7of9 get back to this alternate reality in control of a VR machine containing the original JTK? Who cares as long as it includes jump suits.
Son of Max
I was hoping Sam Worthington would be son of Mel with Theron his side bitch
See you on the road scag!
"How do they know that these weren't actually British dinosaurs who emigrated there for better weather and prospects, or criminal dinosaurs transported there against their will for stealing iguanadon eggs?"
There's no evidence of excessive dinosaur whining "its not like that TV show Neighbours is it!!!"
Obvious to all with a brain
watch the video, read the brief.
NASA needs an acid enema of Saturn V proportions "now with spinning brush".
