Re: Windows "Toy" operating systems.
Play nice you two, I came on here to get away from the threat of flames for a few mionutes.
All have their place, all environments are heterogeneous to some extent and hey, They even play nice together most of the time..
Whatever time Turnbull thinks he can save by doing FTTN and whatever cash he thinks he can save will be lost in 'robust free and frank discussions' with Telstra.
SO most likely we'll end up with a more fragmented service, costing more and later than otherwise. (If it doesn't actually cost more up front, it will in the future, either directly out of our pockets or as the copper replacement programme is run.
My cynical side would suggest the 'upgrade' was to install the 'Liberal-Conservative' module in the Management decision support system in anticipation of the upcoming 'free and frank discussions' on changes to NBN arrangements.
But that would require me to GAS*
So its probably just some really old copper somewhere disintegrated as it got exposed to oxygen as someone opened a pit somewhere for the first time in 60 years,
GAS - give a shit.
I for one, welcome our DRINK COKE new 'benign guardians' EAT AT JOE'S who will keep watch over us BUY BOOSTER PILLS at night.
Brings a tear.
Started with this stuff - NetWare 2.11. 'Had Windows 1.0' sitting on one of the volumes for that new fangled GUI 'Excel' Spreadsheet.
NDS / then eDirectory scaled nicely into multi million entries...
GUI on a server? Whats the point if you're just going to brick it up in a recently refurbished comms room for future admins, auditors, "transformation' project teams and archeologists to fret over?
But we grow old, our hair falls out (or goes grey if lucky) and we deal with Foggy Fake Farms. (That's virtualised servers in Data Centres charged out by the photo , email address or whatever, for you young PFY.)
When I were a lad CLI didn't exist, 'cos you don't need an acronym for the only way to do something.
Try to tell that to the young people today, they won't believe you.
Wow! Think of all the data you imagine might be useful to someone, so you could transmit it all.... every mic and camera feed from a concert or game.... do your own mixing at home!
What more reason to we need? Gotta have the NBN now! at the full wack!
.. to that man.
Chuck Norris meets McGyver.
Haven't even finished playing with their new toy, let alone upgrading it and already looking ahead to the next one.
Progress... can't stop it.
(For pity's sake please don't build it anywhere near the ocean, don't want any sharks getting their fins on the frickin' lasers.)
Senator Conroy is ordering stock for his next meeting with the local Telcos.....
Don't care who much I can or can't hear in side my car, or what it sounds like outside.
As long as it can fly.
To all involved, especially Jan!
However, you'd want to be very careful about controlling your thoughts... wandering hands....
Only 40 more to find.
New use for RFID
Double beep as patient leaves hospital..
"Nurse! Stop that patient!
He's smuggling out a clamp and a swab, internally!"
Forget the keyboard for the Pi, I need a new keyboard now....
The last line.
Optional rear end
Optarse aren't much better when it comes to contention.... same journey everyday, sitting in the same spot on a station - 2 out 3 days, bad or no connection. - with full bar signal 'strength.
Contract up shortly....'
All the more reason for experimenting with micro-brewing in microgravity... now there is a way to reuse the by-products!
Some of them anyway.
(martian? The eyes obviously)
So will they 'buy' .icann and .icant?
Bet they don't charge themselves the admin fee...
mines the .coat (nearly put a '.' at the end there as well, silly me.)
with a piezoelectric device and bingo, a self charging device... animated logos on sportwswear anyone?
Paris, because I'm sure she could come up with some other uses, or ways to charge it...
mobile phones started off car mounted and computers were rooms etc etc and now I can carry both as one device in my pocket...
Would you call this 0 G?
Mine's the one with the extra large, very warm pocket.
Re: Where do I apply
I think the pay rates are summed up in the word 'Volunteer.'
Anyone with any knowledge on how that compares to what Tel$tra currently charges the ankle biters?
Especially interested in the backhaul rates...
I bet when they make one, it will look EXACTLY like a Flux Capacitor.
Beer, because that's the best random anything generator I've found yet.
Watch out if a local offers you a 7 course meal....
a meat pie, (Kangaroo of course) and a 6 pack.
By the time the majority of us actually have to make a choice between the NBN connected ISPs, the plans and prices are bound to be different anyway..
Bit more ISP consolidation coming up then?
Also very interested to see what happens with the VOIP only providers (MNF, PennyTel etal.) and if they change offerings.
