Yes. And it's phonetically Ou-trim I guess.

Long, contentious thread too.

coffeebaron: We should organise a Outram Geekzone meet up :)


auckland one first! @nate



Sold the cafe earlier this year so could be a little tricky...



That explains why things looked different when i drove past last...



Ahhh well, Next GZ meetup will have to be down in Devo at the local.


Looks like @coil is organising and sponsoring the next Auckland GZ event.




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

Wow that thread was a crackup. What a clueless idiot MP Clare Curran proved herself to be around that time. And here we are in 2018, surprise surprise, she proves again that she's a clueless idiot. This time around though, she's still an MP but fortunately an ex-minister - which is an improvement. At least she can't do much more damage now.

Hello or should I say BOO...

 

Yes still around, live in Mosgiel now with fibre from day three. 

 

Had to move out of Outram because of divorce (don't ever do that) and not being able to afford the remainder of the family home we built.  Outram had an upgrade to VDSL not long after I moved out and fibre is now planned for 2023 unless that's changed since.

 

Life is good though, as odd as is sounds doing the petition at the time then getting involved in Ingress and a whole new group of friends saved me from a deep dark hole.  I have my own house, I take basically full care of my awesome daughter and I even have a girlfriend of ten months.

 

Cheers 

 

Tim

It's all set to be done by 2022, but glad things are working out for you. Mosgiel eh? Go into Mosgiel, people smile! City living, country style (or so I'm told) :)

Funny you say this, Ingress did the same for me :)
