Australia downloads a limping 13 Mbps, says Ookla

Re: 13Mbit?

I live in a business / urban suburb that is close to the exchange (Subiaco WA) and I get 17 Mb. When I tell co-workers of these fabled speeds I get mixed reactions. Disbelief - wonder - excitement and hope.

Most report 2 - 8 Mb as the norm so 13Mb seems VERY high.

If I only got 1 spam per 115 legitimate Yahoo emails I would be one happy camper. My Spamassassin config automatically gives Yahoo 2.5 out of a needed 5 to get flagged.

<-- Because that is what I would like to do to spammers.

Customs contradicts vendors over IT pricing

Dozer
Pirate

As an Australian citizen I don't mind paying 10 to 20% more for products than my American / European brothers but the 100 to 300% I regularly see is a joke. The worst is when talking to the shop owner and their buy price is more than on-line inc shipping.

...they will take my parallel import out of my cold dead hands etc....

Re: Epic Shit

I might give up a few Sunday's for this:

Ezekiel 25:17

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee.

" Learning to keep quiet and smile is probably the best advice that can be given to a great number of people."

Funny you say that. I almost got an employee of the month for saying about two sentences in a client facing kick off meeting. However, one of my co-workers almost got terminated for dribbling on for thirty minutes in the same meeting.

Fire Warden

I recently "saved" a number of our HR babes from an overly enthusiastic toaster as a part of my duties as floor fire warden....Unfortunately I had to keep the door open for our sweaty developer as well.

Don't think that counts though.

It isn't as if most mail systems can't be configured to block outbound mail with more than X number of recipients! 400+ seems way too high.
