BarTender: I can offer some superior broadband testing equipment.

Is that for testing whether dialup works over their VoIP network?


My lips are sealed.

When I asked bigpipe for IPv6 they told me no. I asked the MyRepublic man and he said that the IPv8 will improve my wireless. I am excited!!!

IPv8 sounds like an amazing step forward for Wireless connections i think everyone is on the tips of their toes waiting to see if it can handle a gbit connection.

I wish that bigpipe would offer it as it'll help my gaming. I am excited to finally ditch the ethernet. I am currently going through and pulling it out of the walls as I never want to use it again. @Brumfondl would be proud of me as he was trying to get me to switch with that BigPipe IPv6 thread but little does he know I'll be in the fast lane now!!!

Greetings from a happy MR customer.

 

I just hope that my blazing download speeds, practically non existent latency, and absolutely awesome customer support, are not compromised when all you fools on other ISP's realise what you are missing and finally come over to the BEST ISP this side of the black stump!

 

 

 

On a serious important health issue I see that that the clever folks at Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools have developed a chemical that can detect urine in pools.

Geez I hoped they would at-least have Taylor Swift as their hold music. Everyone likes Taylor. I queued some up for everyone on The Cheese:

 

 

@ZollyMonsta thanks for having heaps of Taylor!

Make sure you enable IPv8 after the switch so that you can use it to connect to your shared printer.

The MyRepublic rep hand delivered me the modem and told me about it. He ripped out my old network with the Edgerouter and installed this and made a quick telephone call to activate it. He said I should never need to use Ethernet again because the WiFi is so advanced on this new modem. He then activated the beta of IPv8 and I was off!
