I'm disappointed...

The swimming pool is on the same street as my work... and you didn't pop in to say Hi and have a coffee? We even have our own espresso machine here!

Mind you, it's a long commute for you, perhaps you wanted to get back home in time...

:\

Cheers
Jon

mmmm the P lab :)




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?
