#geekzone Chat Log Tue 6th June 2006

By tonyhughes Hughes, in , posted: 9-Jun-2006 09:42

Notable absence: Mauricio.
Topic(s): Lots of things, not very structured this week due to above absence.
Notes: Gave away a Microsoft Windows Backpack and announced Xtra Wired Network Pack Winner. Chat was unruly, and this log is heavily filtered for inappropriateness :-P We had fun, come join us next time...

*note* I have decided to post these logs on my blog, so that they are all easily accessible in one place (click 'Chat Logs' in sidebar to get all logs filtered down into one page.)

Chat with us at http://www.geekzone.co.nz/chat.asp or on DalNET #geekzone

We log our scheduled chat on a Tuesday evening 8pm - 9pm but we also have a busy informal chat before and after those times, as well as all through the week, day or night.

[20:00] * Cokemaster changes topic to 'Geekzone - www.geekzone.co.nz | Chat in session! - Todays spoils:  Giving away a Microsoft Backpack with Windows logo... (and announce winner of Xtra Wired Network kit) | Troll like you did last summer....'

[20:01] <JAMMAN2110> brads MIA
[20:01] <Cokemaster> Hmm
[20:01] <Cokemaster> It is a step in the right direction I think
[20:01] <Cokemaster> But
[20:01] <tonyhughes> $149 charge cap isnt much protection
[20:01] <Cokemaster> Yes
[20:01] <JAMMAN2110> thats rediculous
[20:01] <Cokemaster> And with only 200mb on the cap... its stupid
[20:01] <Cokemaster> Better off on dialup
[20:01] <tonyhughes> yeah
[20:01] <JAMMAN2110> proabably faster too ;)
[20:01] <Cokemaster> lol
[20:02] <tonyhughes> patches and updates for AV, spyware and OS eats that up
[20:02] <Cokemaster> I remember pulling down cd images on dialup
[20:02] <GZNeoTech> don't ihug and xtra have price caps on the entry plans?

[20:03] <JAMMAN2110> lol you'll pay it naked? - from the comfort of your computer
[20:03] <Fraktul> why up and down?
[20:03] <GZNeoTech> why not?
[20:03] <JAMMAN2110> why not up and down?
[20:03] <tonyhughes> or 80GB total
[20:03] <tonyhughes> just looking for realistic numbers
[20:03] <Fraktul> yeah why not just 80gb total
[20:04] <JAMMAN2110> 60 down 40 up?

[20:10] 3*** Joins : bradstewart (*!*bradley@222-153-115-33.jetstream.xtra.co.nz) -- (Operator Status: Janitor)
[20:10] <cokebot> [bradstewart]: Cokebot got owned by bradstewart
[20:10] <sbiddle> The changes are at least better than what they had
[20:10] <GZNeoTech> had snow here onece years ago also
[20:10] <Cokemaster> Indeed
[20:10] <bradstewart> apolgies
[20:10] <tonyhughes> would consider you choose on open term
[20:10] <GZNeoTech> heya Brad
[20:10] <tonyhughes> but i will never sign a contract
[20:10] <sbiddle> But still crap. I don't want a term
[20:10] <tonyhughes> im open term telecom
[20:10] <Cokemaster> Same
[20:10] <Cokemaster> I'm on a 12 month term currently
[20:10] <Fraktul> i want a cheaper 3g data plan
[20:10] <bradstewart> open term
[20:10] <JAMMAN2110> yuck telecom
[20:10] <tonyhughes> wb brad
[20:11] <Cokemaster> Ah
[20:11] * tonyhughes sets mode: +v sbiddle
[20:11] <bradstewart> sorry for the lateness
[20:11] * tonyhughes sets mode: +v bradstewart
[20:11] <Cokemaster> 11 minutes late bradstewart
[20:11] <GZNeoTech> think I'm going to be um..'in negotiations' with telecom soon.. then might have to go to voda
[20:11] <Fraktul> say 14.95 for 1gb
[20:11] <Cokemaster> Don't worry
[20:11] <JAMMAN2110> 14.95s a bit much dont you think?
[20:11] <bradstewart> 9 actually
[20:11] <Cokemaster> Hmm
[20:11] <tonyhughes> $15 for 1gb of data is low(ish)
[20:11] <Cokemaster> 49.95 is a step in the right direction I think
[20:11] <Cokemaster> Compared to what they used to be
[20:11] <tonyhughes> yes it is
[20:11] <JAMMAN2110> could be lower considering
[20:11] <GZNeoTech> agrred
[20:12] <Fraktul> no if too many people use it then it will overload the rf gear
[20:12] <tonyhughes> you can still pay $8 per meg though
[20:12] * GZNeoTech snaps spelling fingers
[20:12] <sbiddle> I refuse to sign a contract with a company as disfunctional as Vodafone. They can't even reply to emails or answer a billing issue from January
[20:12] <bradstewart> lol @ sbiddle, u still having probs?
[20:12] * geekbot sets mode +spell #geekzone GZNeotech
[20:12] <sbiddle> yip, they are still overcharing people for WAP and won't answer my questions
[20:12] <Cokemaster> Yep
[20:12] <Cokemaster> I've still got that issue
[20:13] <bradstewart> thats rather shocking
[20:13] <sbiddle> What issue have you got?
[20:13] <JAMMAN2110> im still being overcharged for that
[20:13] <sbiddle> (an't remember)
[20:13] <bradstewart> me 2. $50/mb
[20:13] <Cokemaster> Everytime I connect to GPRS (voda live)... I get the minimum charge 10c for the session
[20:13] <JAMMAN2110> sh ite im not getting charged that much!
[20:13] <Cokemaster> because apparently I connect to a non voda live site
[20:13] <bradstewart> and thats your fault?
[20:13] <JAMMAN2110> VFL is supposed to be free to browse
[20:13] <Cokemaster> Its annoying because it happens when I send/get MMS's too
[20:14] <JAMMAN2110> MMSs is where i found the problem
[20:14] <bradstewart> have they actually tried to do anything?
[20:14] <JAMMAN2110> ppl on 777 are unhelpful
[20:14] <sbiddle> Mine is that Vodafone charge you 6c per 10kb once you go over your data plan cap. excess WAP should only be charged at excess data rate plan - data gets correctly charged at 2c/10kb
[20:14] <Cokemaster> Ah ok
[20:14] <sbiddle> This is apparently "how it is"
[20:14] <JAMMAN2110> nice vodafone man gave me a database techs umber .. lost it :(
[20:14] <Cokemaster> Tried solutions support?
[20:14] <JAMMAN2110> they need a good slap
[20:15] <sbiddle> Despite it saying everywhere that excess data and excess WAP is charged at data rates
[20:15] * bradstewart slaps vodafone
[20:15] <JAMMAN2110> solutions support?
[20:15] <sbiddle> 4 x calls to solution support
[20:15] <Cokemaster> Ah
[20:15] <sbiddle> they finally rang me back after 3 promised calls
[20:15] <tonyhughes> Ok folks, we scientifically selected a winner for the Microsoft Windows backpack (used Leisa as a random number generator and went down the userlist!)... winner is sbiddle PM me your address....

[20:25] <Cokemaster> Yes
[20:26] <Fraktul> is this to b parties in their own network?
[20:26] <GZNeoTech> media? funny you should say that
[20:26] <Fraktul> or other networks
[20:26] <tonyhughes> why?
[20:26] <GZNeoTech> the OP has been contacted by the media
[20:26] <Fraktul> if the b party is in other networks it may be the other network is not doing some ss7 complient and has screwed up
[20:26] <Fraktul> not telecom
[20:26] <Cokemaster> Hmm
[20:26] <bradstewart> yes i had that prob
[20:26] <Fraktul> something
[20:27] <tonyhughes> hmmm

[20:27] <GZNeoTech> via a PM in GZ
[20:27] <Cokemaster> Ah
[20:27] <tonyhughes> could be fun
[20:27] <Fraktul> the other netwokr may signal the call is connected even though it not properly
[20:27] <GZNeoTech> same network
[20:27] <tonyhughes> we could engineer a hoax....
[20:27] <tonyhughes> lol
[20:27] <Cokemaster> Hmm
[20:27] <bradstewart> it only happen when calling VF
[20:27] <Cokemaster> Would be damaging
[20:28] <tonyhughes> yeah

[20:28] <tonyhughes> but fun!!
[20:28] <Cokemaster> I remember calling Xtra about the LLU and they hang up on me

[20:28] <Cokemaster> My SE Z600 does though... but I wasn't using that
[20:28] <GZNeoTech> always the way
[20:29] <Cokemaster> So
[20:29] <bradstewart> try again
[20:29] <Cokemaster> How are people finding IRC
[20:29] <Cokemaster> Nicer than userplane?
[20:29] <GZNeoTech> easy.. did a search for it in tucows and there it was
[20:29] <Fraktul> same as i have for the last 10 years :P
[20:29] <GZNeoTech> ;)
[20:29] <Fraktul> ./me goes back to ideling
[20:29] <GZNeoTech> first time I've used it in 10 years and it hasn't changed
[20:29] <tonyhughes> i am enjoying it
[20:30] <Cokemaster> Yes but if you had a choice between IRC and userplane... what would you choose
[20:30] <Cokemaster> I'm personally for IRC
[20:30] <Fraktul> irc
