He looks like one of my customers, who's name is not Rolf Harris.





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.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

Geektastic: For the sake of logical sanity, let me point out that nothing RH may have done (and frankly I have my doubts as to the safety of the conviction) alters the fact that he remains an extremely talented person.


I have my doubts as to the safety of the conviction

I'd like to think that too, but the number of times people in power, be it political, sport, the arts, or just plain wealthy, abuse their position is downright staggering. 




Statistically probably no greater than people not in the public eye however.

OK guys. Just got back from the beach (as per someones suggestion) and now realise that my sense of humour is a little too strange for Geekzone. No problem.

On a more important note ....... why is Geekzone forum trying to spell certain words in the american format? Do I need to change some settings back to NZ? Or has the image of Rolf Harris scrambled my brain?

Just checked it and Chrome is set to English UK (the original). However, I got out the insect repellent and deleted that nasty infestation they call (US, listed below my default settings. And thank you, all is as it should now be.

Is Rolf Harris Santa Claus?

What's going to happen to Christmas this year?




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

"Come sit on my knee little girlie"

In all seriousness, maybe a subject I should not have started here on GZ. It all came about because a family member mentioned it and I know just how deep the scars can run. Luckily I still have a sense of humour.

I have a sense of humour, but this guy looks nothing like Rolph Harris.
