Re: Apple Computer Problems

Mavericks is quite a large download - 5.5GB infact - and if you install it normally, It is required to be downloaded in entirety on each machine that you wish to install it. One option available, if you're good with following instructions or just good with computers in general, is that you can downl...

Re: Wireless internet

It's also worth checking whether your local telephone exchange is close enough to justify ADSL2 (If you're too far, It'll be slow and crap, though where I am, We're like 400m from the exchange and it's slow and crap still) The other thing worth checking is seeing what ISP's have equipment at your ex...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

My local RMS office recently became a Service NSW centre. Before they changed over, there were massive stacks of all L and P plates that you could help yourself too, but now you have to go the welcome desk and ask for them. They gave me 4 P plates when I last went :roll: When I got my L's in Februa...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

Nespresso is so much nicer. I used to drink about 10 cups of that a day until I had to leave my machine in Melbourne after I moved to Sydney.

I drink about 5 cups a day on weekends now I've got my machine back with me but I only have one in the morning and maybe one at night.

Re: The Infamous Minto Mall

It opened on Thursday. Coming back along the Hume yesterday afternoon, Between Ingleburn and Casula, There's a sign on the side of the freeway announcing K-Mart being open at Minto Marketplace. They've also got a Woolworthes, Reject Shop and Subway in there from what I can tell. Haven't been in yet.

Dealing with tech support (using that term very loosely) for a client who's document management software wasn't working. Tech support, when presented with the issue, looked and responded with "I don't know, get the user to play around with it and see what happens". Helpful. Issues like that are wha...

Re: What is your favourite game?

Flight Simulator. It's about the only 'Game' I'm any good at. I miss playing it because my PC is still in Melbourne and I can't justify spending $2,000+ for a new gaming machine when FSX's performance is still quite woeful even on latest machines. I'd love to try Prepar3d (by Lockheed Martin, which ...

I actually quite enjoyed the heat yesterday. Went for a 2k walk at lunch time just to get out in it.

Unless it's Mick Gatto. He's an honest ex-criminal.
Have you never paid any attention to Australian history?

We tend to glorify all major criminals of the past.

just to interrupt... but I grew up playing FlightSim and so strangely, despite being brought up in a Metric-standard country, I actually find that in terms of height, I'm very comfortable with feet/inches. Saying 8,000M up to me will result in a blank stare... Saying 16,000ft, I'll at least understa...
