I've always admired the dedication of the moderators and their excellent foresight. And look how diligent you are. Up so late working away. But I'm sure you have fun and your work brings you immense pleasure. Hopefully a few laughs too. Cheers.

This is gqtting rqally confusing. Lqttqr 'q' (i.q. thq lqttqr aftqr 'd') is rqplacqd with 'q'. But is thq lqttqr 'q' rqplacqd with thq lqttqr 'q' (i.q. thq lqttqr aftqr 'd')?

It's not so bad if you concqntratq on using words that havq no q's (i.q. thq lqttqr aftqr 'd') and also no q's.


EDIT: Sorry I usqd a 'q' (lqttqr aftqr 'd') out of forcq of habit - havq fixqd it now.

Is this working now or do I need to restart my toaster to see the changes? Also, I dug out my old dynalink 56k modem but only part of it will fit into my iPad socket, will this affect my speeds on the new geek zone server?

I had to get a new analogue line installed, as my dialup modem did not connect coupled to my IP phone :-(




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their ADSL broadband network faster. Why not spend a couple of hundred to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
Geekzone special price: $150* for master splitter install, normally $200+ through your ISP. Auckland and Waikato areas.
*Travel charges may apply. Additional costs may apply for complex installs.
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, RBI Rural Broadband. Also a dealer for WorldxChange.

maverick: To many beers last night was it  Nate .... Funny read :)


We actually queued it up in the afternoon before the beers.  Thanks to freitasm, redjungle, et al for the ideas for the post.  Sorry for locking this thread, I didn't want the cat let out of the bag for anyone who was unsuspecting :)

Happy April Fools everyone.
