Australian government sun to set on NBN funding


NBN would have been self sustaining

The NBN would have been completed from income previously, thou now with FttN the higher OPEX

from maintenance of FttN cabinets, batteries, copper lines [estimated at $1B of the current $1.4B/yr] etc. means the first $1.5B a year dissappears and can't be used to finnish the network.

What a great plan.

16 telco heads request data retention funding info from Turnbull, Brandis


Bet the best SysAdmins/DevOps accidentally effup the backups

This will be circumvented by 'Accidents' and the data will be lost, corrupted etc. Made

almost un-usable etc, Super-capacitors good for making a instant data wiper, so lets

see the word 'retention' be redefined!

Google grand fromage Eric Schmidt: Backing climate denier lobby a 'mistake'


Re: Crap rebuttal, as you would know if it had happened to you @Thought About IT

These comments are the same ones from decades ago.

It IS agreed that humans are causing issues with the climate buy burning fossil fuels causing the

release of co2 that has been stored over 100,000s of years in under 150 years.

Well I suppose you can't fix stupid.

CONFIRMED: NBN Co has NO blackspot fix plan


With 38,000 klms of Fibre installed for the Backbone, 90 of the 121 POI's installed and operational the NBN has achieved quite alot since the signing of the agreement with Telstra not that long ago. So any claim that it is only 3% complete is just BS. Given that in order to get decent income you need to provide all speed tiers at all end points as you don't know who will want what speed and they may well move. The LNP's Fraudband just can't make much income with only offering maybe up to 25 mbps with no quality of service, no upload speed to talk of. Let alone the maintenance nightmare of maintaining five different technologies. The power for all these node cabinets, 60,000 at 5kw/h is over $8Billion a decade just for the 30% on FttN + ?? for HFC and FttH node cabinets will use hmmm Zip power per decade.

Huawei says US stance is 'protectionism'


Huawei Android source release is intentionally modified

Until Huawei release un stuffed up source code that can actually be used to build a working binary. All the Australian CEO of Huawei efforts will not be believed. Maybe he should speak to his chinese counterparts and get this fixed asap. The developers at modoco have commented that the source release from Huawei has been intentionally corrupted so that the bluetooth, camera, and other systems will not even compile due to Huawei tampering with it intentionally.

Climate-change scepticism must be 'treated', says enviro-sociologist


All commentards

When the commentards have spent as much time and come up with another outcome, then they have the right to believe it. Untill then shut the f.up.

I thought people that read the register could count past ten without taking their shoes off.


Re: She has a point

WHen you have done as much work on the issue, and have come up with a different conclusion then you can have your say and it will have some worth.

Medieval warming was global – new science contradicts IPCC


Re: El Reg Scepticism

Clearly the hottest decade != "the earth has not warmed for over 10 years at this point"
