So I got home this arvo and my internet seems to have improved. Still not as fast as what it use to be but it's now downloading at 700kb/s and I can watch Youtube vids of giant ear wax removals at 720p.

EDIT: Can't complain too much at this point, I'm faster than 40% of Australia now rather than 12% - lol

That's a start Mugsy!

A big storm is rolling through, the skies went dark and suddenly it feels like it's 9PM.. always kills my motivation at work when it's brighter inside my office than out

Interesting fact, assuming I don't die or win lottery, and I retire at 70 (in 2056), I currently have somewhere in the region of 14,194 days left to work (excluding holidays and sick days)

For a moment I thought your issues with your net were catching as I was suddenly having terrible speeds (was more a glitch in the end) but mine is still pretty horrible, although I won't get NBN till end of this year where no doubt it will be just as terrible as it currently is.

Sadly this only really upsets me when I compare it to the speed my phone gets from the same location (on 4G)

Great to see Netflix is persisting with it's shitty ratings system.. "98% like movies you watch", but rated 1/10 on IMDB.. pass. It's a pain in the neck having to look up reviews of shows before you give them a go.

These days I don't watch a movie without first checking out whether it's got a good RT/IMDB score. More movies than time so it's a good filter for movies. That said, one of my favourite films is Death to Smoochy, which has a low RT/IMDB score and I happened to discover it by its description.

Yeah, I use to get about 12Mbps or more at my old residence so 10Mbps isn't anything to scream about... but it's still better than what I currently have. I've still got 2yrs+ before the NBN reaches here.

I should check out how fast my phone's speed is. It'll probably mimic your results.

Started planning for a European vacation in July. Got to spend some time with the in-laws in Finland, then I'm hoping to do a bit of a trip across northern Europe (Stockholm-Copenhagen-Amsterdam) before returning home.

I want to head to Japan in late April 2019, but it's a bit early to start planning it.

Brilliant (if expensive) time of year to head to Europe. Enjoy the 930pm sunset beers!

It's when I can make time off work - current contract expires June 30.

I also spent July 2011 and July 2015 in Finland. This time I'm hoping to mix it with travel around Europe, because I'm otherwise pretty hopeless at organising vacations where I do things. Perpetual daylight does have its bonuses, and it being summer gives a huge incentive to get out of Canberra.

I would have thought winter in Canberra would be enough incentive to get out of Canberra :D

lol, true. Though I've lived here 10 winters (and 4 winters before that in Bathurst), so I've somewhat acclimatised to the cold. Plus I'm paid to be here, and it's where I have a roof over my head. And Canberra has some really nice food and wine. And coffee - especially coffee! So there are some perks...

Canberra is probably one of my favourite cities to be honest, feels rural even though it’s not.

Unless you want to gamble and drink at the same time, then it’s a pain in the ass!

Threw my lower back out yesterday morning when doing chores. Hurts to try to straighten my back so I sat down most of yesterday playing Diablo 3. Just as well, it was day 1 of a season... got to max character level in 3.5hrs... had my 6pc set in 6hrs and finished off the night with a pretty usable Impale build and 306 paragon levels that one shots elites on the highest difficulty.

I do the same for anything I feel like watching on Netflix because their rating system is utter trash, but you can't even just trust an actor you like anymore either. I sat down to watch Daniel Radcliffe's new movie, Beast of Burden which I think I stopped watching about 25 minutes in. Should have saved the time.

So TPG has emailed us this afternoon off the back of an ACCC ruling, and are refunding us over $300 because they've been charging us for NBN speeds which it cannot deliver (100/40) and our line max is 40/10ish).

Sweet.

I'm not even going to lie dude, that whole weird ass waifu thing is seriously fucked up - it's not normal, it's weird, and anyone into it needs to find their way to either a brothel or a good shrink.
