That I live in a place where someone adopting a disabled cat is a front page story in the local newspaper.

My dog has been sleeping in my bed for almost 16yrs. He snores, farts and has to get up at least twice a night to go to the toilet. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I woke up the other night (freezing night) and my cat had decided to get under the covers with me. :)

Have fibre working!

 

Speedtest shows I am actually getting 200/20.

 

I finally worked out that if you put 7 x 9's in the Throughput settings, it accepts them, but doesn't wok!

 

If you put 6 x 9's it works!

 

Now to actually get the VOIP working as Multimedia / Enable cut the copper!

Handle9: Connecting to a home server (over vpn) while having a coffee at a cafe.

 

VPNs don't provide privacy, with a few exceptions. They are just a proxy. If somebody wants to tap your connection, they can still do so - they just have to do it at a different point.

A shower between flights. Life saving, especially with jet lag.

When you are down the back on a long haul flight and the couple in the middle seats are a government minister and his wife. It's even better when he just chats away without mentioning who he is. New Zealand is a pretty cool place.
