MW 4 Mercenaries was fun. In some missions you even had alternative choices how to do them. Ambush the Clans at night or challenge them openly. They are insulted because you come with two lances against a trinary star and offer them to rebid if that's not enough for them.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
Channelling CG here - woke this morning to no internet connection. We have had NBN connected for 2 day, fabulous speed, amazing but 2 days in and we have our first outage.
Fire up the mobile hotspot to see what is what. No NBN outages reported for my area, go the the Telstra website and they have an online test function, NBN tests fine, the line test however times out after 20 minutes. They supply a toll free number to call.
After going through their automated system I am finally told there is a 20+ minutes wait and if I stay on the line (hint hint) they will require a whole bunch of information to fix the problem.
And here is the kicker - they play the most horrendous music while waiting the 20+ minutes.
Meanwhile they have fixed the connection, I only found out by trying to connect again.
I'm not sure if I should be bitching about the outage or praising them for the rapid repair/reconnect.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
We've had the NBN crews in the street for a few days. We had been told connection in May but they now seem to be ahead of that estimate. In the meantime my copper broadband has slowed to a crawl. Telstra seem to have acknowledged this by sending me an email telling me that my plan now has unlimited data. I hope the future is bright.

You're in the steaming tropics of the lucky country... food that isn't dangerous (in that it doesn't try and kill you) is pretty scarce - so pretty much all of the wildlife (from fire ants to crocs and cassowarys) have developed a taste for anything else the dopey bipeds stick in on or above the ground - fiber is always good (even women's magazines agree with that one).
Using Docker just so you can tell management that you are is probably the weirdest use for it. What do you think? Take our 30 sec Docker survey and help us reach our charity goal of $1500. And feel free to share your own weird uses; we could use a good laugh. Vote today!
I have always liked him. Will be missed. RIP Bandit!
