I hope this doesn't create massive lag. XBL was almost unplayable last weekend so I had to forfeit out of that round of the competition I'm in

Good on you Snap!

Unfortunately I have nothing to download or upload at the moment! I suppose I could watch a few you tube music video concerts in HD. But hang on.... thats free anyway. 

Anyone want to borrow my MB's? ;)

Apologies, I accidentally wrote 8PM Monday! It should have been *8AM* Monday

Aw, go on - it's already out there as being 8PM Monday so how about extending it till then? It would let some folks sleep sound in the knowledge that they can still get back at TelstraClear during normal waking hours Tongue Out

C'mon, you know you want to let us keep downloading and 8PM is a nice, round end-point...

Actually isn't this now an FTA thing?  We both saw the sign on the goods that said they were free until 8PM so I think it's only fair that it's honored....

...and before Ralph gets all annoyed at me, I think it would be only fair to pass the bill for the extra traffic back to his upstream, I mean it's hardly his fault he hasn't got time to proof read his posts in between taking phone calls from unhappy customers who were impacted over the weekend (writes the Telstra customer who had a very interesting conversation with at least one staff memeber at Snap this morning who really did sound a bit jaded ;) )

genuine mistakes are allowed to be forgiven.  If you saw a ferrari in a car yard advertised for $20000 because the last 0 fell off the sign i doubt you would convince anyone you were entitled to buy it for that price...  its only really false advertising if it was designed to decieve.

Ssshhhh.... 

Ralph, take no notice of him. Regs didn't notice Don's tongue-in-cheek or the imploring (cute, with big pleading eyes) looks I gave when I wrote my comment. Wink
