Fred99:

I don't seem to be getting any more junk mail without it than I did with the old letterbox.

 

 

Junk mail has been slowly dying for several years now due to lack of people willing to deliver it. We haven't had any for 2-3 years, but you can still see it taped up at the entrance to Mitre10, Bunnings, Warehouse etc so it's still being produced.

 

 

It's a pity really, I don't miss the general junk mail much but I wish we still got the local rag, soft and thoroughly absorbent.

Coming to work today for the first time in a long time and it was fine. 

 

Went to a client meeting and when I came out it was raining. 

 

Got back to the office a little damp and it's fine again. 

 

Annoying.

If you configure networking devices please read, especially if you work for an ISP where you can configure your own devices with no control over customer equipment that may be connected to it:

 

 

 

Please do not set a port speed/duplex to anything other than auto/auto unless you can guarantee that the other connected device will forever also be manually configured.  If one end of a link is auto/auto and the other end is set to 100/full then the auto negotiation will fail and fall back to half duplex, resulting in a mismatch.

 

Throw into the mix some moron forgetting to copy the running config to startup.

The amount of paper wasted every time we have an election telling people that if no details have changed they do not need to do anything - except bin all the paper we just sent you.

With a side order of if the details had changed, chances are you wouldn't have received said pieces of paper.

Discounting across the board seem to have eased considerably which is not surprising given the economic climate. The exception of course is Briscoes, only the rapture would stop their sale.

I would have thought supermarkets escaped the worst economic woes, although no doubt there were more costs back then.

Pardon me if I am being judgemental, but that really sounds like a First World problem!

This is not directed at you Rikkitic I get very irritated by the term "first world problem". It is bandied around often here and it seem like a way to trivialise a problem that is a problem for the  person. One of those silly buzz phrases that needs to go the way of the Dodo

I find it a convenient shorthand phrase, but I take your point.
