I remember about 10yrs+ ago, some reps for Telstra or something came around. They couldn't give me an offer cheaper than my plan or have more data for the same price ($50 for landline plus 12Gb on 512k was cheap then). They bit the bullet and told me to keep my plan as it was a bloody good deal.

You know what's a complete vacuum for our time at work this time of year? It sounds bitchy, but donations.

People mean well and it's lovely and all, but come December, we get this ridiculous influx of people not just wanting to donate, but wanting a 'presentation' for their social media and/or the newspaper plus a House Tour and so on. We've had people want us to show up to their morning/afternoon tea somewhere that's a 300km round trip to attend.

All well and good, and they mean well, I do appreciate it... but there's only two of us... and we still have a house to run and families that need our support (now, more than ever - parents REALLY struggle being away from their support networks at Christmas). It's tough to juggle.

I was raised to not do things I wouldn't want done to myself. And that's why anal sex is off the agenda.

Only found out yesterday arvo that Macca's is doing the coke glasses thing again. Seems it's been going on for 3 weeks already.

They need a gourmet big mac. I'm a Grand Angus fan and would love a big mac variant.

Hopefully they have a clear coke glass. That's all I want. Was never a big fan of the coloured sets.

Close... but No...
No HJ's burger is "good"

I was thinking more a Quarter Pounder...

Got one of the green coke glasses which was last week's colour. Looks like I'm gonna miss out on purple unless they do another run of the colours people missed.

Blue is this week so another Big Mac looks to be in order.

Really, I just want a clear or red one - lol

EDIT: Dammit, looks like I've missed out on the Salmon Pink one already given there's already a tonne of peeps palming them off for $10 each on gumtree:

https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-collectabl ... s/k0c20040

If these colours are anything to go by, it looks like the lime and charcoal colours are what's left. I'd be happy with those. Might get a second charcoal one to use at work.

Just finished putting together a computer for my nephew for Christmas. Have resolved to never touch an Asus motherboard again. Their manual is terrible as are their online guides, the I/O shield is irritating and they put screw holes in difficult to reach places.

Not an ASUS mobo fan but my bro and I have both had luck with ASRock which is ironic since Asus owns them.

We tried Gigabyte but both had stability issues. In my case it made my extra warranty worth the money.

Might be better now.

My last 3 MBs have been Asus-Gigabyte-ASRock and they all seem pretty much the same when it comes to installation and putting in the cables. Slight pain in the arse with all of them, but nothing glaringly stupid or difficult on any of them stands out in my memory. It's all a lot easier than when I started doing it 17 years ago.

I've put together a few Gigabyte boards and I think an ASRock one. This was the only board that had me going WTF were they thinking. I understand the need for innovation and stuff, but did they really need to redesign the DIMM sockets?

I had an AsRock and now have an MSI board...
Had stability issues with the asrock, not sure what was the go, but if the GPU got over 60c it just hard locked.
Didn't matter what GPU it was, always had trouble with that mobo. New mobo and same GPU and no issues now. GPU sits at a nice even 70c and sounds like a jet plane, but no hard locks from it.

I will say that the random led line on the back of my board is completely pointless
