DeroyBoy: Just found out I won today!


ah! congrats.  I had an idea there might be another geekzone member amongst the winners, but it's hard to know when youi don't have your name associated with your geekzone profile.

Well done!

Hey Fraser,

 

Just quickly. We’ll be hooking up your broadband on 11/06/2014.

 

Relax.  Don’t bother tidying the house, as in most cases we don’t need to send a technician round. If a technician is required, they will give you a call to arrange a suitable time to pop in. Expect your broadband to drop for up to an hour on that day. Then you may need to reboot your modem to get it going again.

 

I guess I won't need to put the coffee machine on for the Chorus tech.







Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Make sure you have a master filter installed. They don't install one ;)

Yea but its naked with only 20 jack-points, and my wiring is all good coz nothing has changed with it in the past 40 years. There is even a lightning filter - does that make my interwebs go faster during a storm?

Yeah.  Let it Die looks gruesomely awesome, even though all we know is from a live action trailer. 

Can't wait for Destiny.

today's winner:   Matthew Codlin.  Well done Matthew!

PS4 just got waaaaaay sexier with all those E3 announcements.

I don't know what my favourite thing was, but No Man Sky looks pretty sweet
