Other than run things here at 3Bit, I also own Tuihana Cafe with my better half Leslie. It seems pertinent to do a blog post now about public holiday surcharges since Easter has just been, and Anzac Day is a couple days away. As a punter, I don't like any surcharges, and a quick search of Twitter s...

Posted by freitasm on 19-Apr-2014 12:05

More Crypto - Social currency? Redd Coins
Posted by kinsten on 17-Apr-2014 15:51

I have a wall mount mounted on the wall, and the attachment on the back of the TV (although it still sits on its ba...
A Little Rant About Phones
Posted by gnfb on 1-Apr-2014 14:31
Like a lot of people most of my phone calls are done on my mobile. Whether home or out I use my mobile. I did get a "VoIP" device and number, and it comes up on my mobile so I can call on my VoIP line or mobile. I find that for some reason or other, (that I am not prepared to waste any more time on)...
