Is that a possibility? I doubt I'd notice a couple hundred Mhz difference, especially vs the noise from a 40-50mm fan.

I've been using el-cheapo POE to network/5V microUSB adaptors for my Pi and usb powered mikrotik hap-lites. Just a little brick that plugs inline and converts incoming 802af to data and 5v usb, they're about $20usd for 4. Not as neat as the pihat, but no fan and they seem to be working well for what I'm doing.
The bezel on a phone prevents fingers from accidentally touching the screen, a problem not normally encountered during normal TV use.
People choose a phone based on many factors, the most common being "does the shop have it?" and "have I heard of it?". Popularity is not a good measure of practicality.
My ideal phone would be no larger than my old Nexus 5, but when I decided to replace it I couldn't find an upgrade that ticked all the boxes I wanted for screen resolution, updates, memory, processor, memory, LTE bands etc (price rules out the new pixels) . The only compromise I could make was to move to a bigger phone (Nexus 5x). Now I'm shopping for a 5x replacement and I find I have to move to a bigger and heavier phone again just to get a decent upgrade.
Maybe big phones are selling well because there just aren't any options available for people like me?
Careful what you wish for, my 25Mb HFC NBN is often only 5Mb during the evening peak times. Not sure whether it's due to CVC congestion or the shared cable medium though.
Wonder how many of Bill Morrow's low speed customers aren't bothering upgrading due to not being able to even get the speed they're paying for during peak times.
If not for their constant delays with pit remediation in my area I'd have had fibre by the end of last year. Instead it was cancelled and changed to HFC. Add to that the white-anting of the whole NBN project by the telstra/foxtel/newsltd axis of evil, why would I want to voluntarily give any money to any of those organisiations?
Exactly. Meanwhile Hockey's mates in finance (super tax concessions) and real estate (negative gearing, CGT discount) get to keep their increasingly many billions per year of tax lurks. Makes all this seem like a sideshow, just to be seen to be doing something whilst not even touching the low hanging fruit.
The number one reason to install battery banks would be to get off the grid. As more people install solar systems the power companies have found they are no longer making as much money from usage so to make up for lost revenue they are increasing the daily supply rate for the grid connection. AGL's solution doesn't seem like much more than off-peak for solar customers by proxy.
I use an old microsoft intellimouse optical i bought for $80 more than 10 years ago. Still the nicest scroll wheel I've found, and I've grown too accustomed to the size and shape to contemplate a different mouse. Pity about the awkward positions of buttons 4 and 5.
Keyboard was nicked from a Dell GX520, it's got media buttons and a volume knob, plus some internet buttons I don't use.
Mouse mat could end up a family heirloom, has to be at least 20 years old now. Probably what I should replace first, although I doubt changing any of my equipment would improve my gaming in the slightest.
Inflation is here, just not counted in the ABS numbers. It's in the house/land prices. For example, the reason a cup of coffee here costs $5 instead of $2 any more is because the person serving you has a $300k mortgage. Of course talking about it is off limits when the treasurer is the owner of about seven investment properties.
I checked 2 sites I previously had to open in chrome (google docs (spreadsheet selection box didn't line up with cell borders) and codecademy (cursor position in editor box didn't keep up with actual character spacing)), and they both work properly under opera now. So the tally is at minus 2 pages for me so far.
Telstra have started posting leaflets saying they've rolled out bigpond cable to my area now. Obviously trying the same dirty tactics they used against the old optus cable rollout. Thanks, but I think I'll wait for the fibre.
Also, the main concern I'd heard about the NTUs was the physical size of the units. Personally, I'd let them install something as big as a fridge if it meant I could go from a flaky 3.5/0.7Mb/s to a solid 100/25.
...come contract renewal time if they don't alleviate some of their oversubscription issues. Maybe try adding bandwidth to cell sites, put towers closer together, and increase the capacity of their internet gateway(s)? Coverage isn't everything anymore, capacity is a big deal these days too.
Encrypted/decrypted at the client, versioned backups and all the other features of the rest. It's the only one I'd consider paying for, and possibly necessary since the 2GB free account is a little low.
OT, but does Skydrive still only allow uploads in 50MB chunks? That's one sure way of ensuring nobody uses all 25GB.
