    I have a great idea to save money. We change the build to a node to string network. I remember as a child I could communicate over a string connected to a tin can.. Surely the internet can work over string... Maybe dipped in water will make it conduct better for higher speeds. :) And with the...

    If we were paying for something that met today's world standards (and shown can be upgraded to even faster) then paying a bit more to get it done right the first time is not an issue. But paying for something that no one in the networking world would build is the problem. As someone else quoted...

    hmmm. I live less than 5 km from city center and cannot get adsl2.. well within 500 metres there is around 200 home units plus all the normal housing. But we are not getting serviced by private industry or getting updated technology. And yes I checked the construction map, we are not on the list...

    Re: MTM Discussion Just because Australia is building a network that is going to be about 50 times slower then the rest of the world gigabytes and not have enough bandwidth to meet even current needs, does not mean we are stupid or does it......;) If u really think this project is now a :lol...

    Chances of QF sale fares BNE - MEL return during Australian Open

    Why do people need cheap tickets to fly, they just need to get a better paying job to pay for more expensive tickets or get the tax payer to pay for their ticket :)

    Passenger of size issues on OOL-MEL flight today

    The solution is easy, they have a test seat at the checkin like they check size of cabin bags. If you cant fit then you do not get boarded. Else off to the cargo hold, with those screaming kids.

    A320 German-wings accident in Southern France

    Well people can just collapse and become incapacitated; so if a second person was in cabin at all times then maybe they could done something. But with no one around then it becomes impossible to stop or correct.

    A320 German-wings accident in Southern France

    I have simple solution. If a pilot needs to exit the coughpit, then a steward must replace them in the coughpit as backup second person, to open door etc. And wear maybe oxygen mask in case of emergency. The only downside is you may have wait extra minute for your drinks.

    Am I really out $1600 - Jet Star

    Exactly, if you check prices over few weeks there always comes along a sales price too Japan or Hawaii. Then you know what they are willing to sell tickets for compared to the standard price. Else, did you use skyscanner to check prices month to month etc to see when a cheap flight maybe on...

    Am I really out $1600 - Jet Star

    That's why I always ring the Psychic hotline before booking my flight. Why not also ask why you cant exchange Aus dollars for US dollars when they were still 1 to 1.. Its called hindsight or potluck.

    MH 777 missing - MH370 media statement

    If you had watched the overseas news cable channels after he said it in parliament. They all may the same statement it must be 99.9% true, as an Australian Prime Minister would not get up in parliament and make such an statement. I would never had made such a statement unless 100% confirmed...

    MH 777 missing - MH370 media statement

    You just would not make a statement in parliament. Even later on after the PM made the statement, the official was smart enough to say, he couldn't see anything from the sat photo. He wasnt jumping to conclusions. Sounds like another WMD- weapons of mass disillusion scene. When will Malcolm in...
