Hopefully this will kill off the plans to bring back Hey Hey again again...
It was great, I loved it
I'd probably still LOL but most Gen Z dont understand humour.
Not just Gen Z, many have lost the ability to laugh at themselves, and they take things so personally.

Not if you go back and read some of the stuff the judge said and did and the dpp had tp appeal or the whole trial would have been aborted

His story of the whole situation was from a Disney movie. It was never going to get him off the charges.  IMWO, if it was true, he is the unluckiest man on the planet.
Although I found the dismissing of the possibility of Manslaughter confusing. Murder or bust

That was an agreement made out of court apparently, I thought it was the judge but it wasn't

... they tout it as saving residents money, but calculations show the people will be worse off either by 50 bucks to sometimes 500. even electric vehicles rego will rise by approx 400 because of it

Just been talking an another forum about the upcoming 3G mobile network closure, & it turns out that it may impact more phones than expected! ::)

Have a look at https://amta.org.au/3g-closure/check-my-device/ & also https://www.telstra.com.au/support/mobiles-devices/3g-closure to check out what may happen with your phone, as "just" being 4G doesn't mean it will still work.

Apparently the level of Android / iOS it runs on will also effect things! :o

Finally somebody has the sense to call out a clear cut case of elder abuse-
https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/other/maga-republican-invoke-25th-amendment-against-puppet-biden-surrounded-by-dem-cadre/ar-BB1pmKrh
The precedent for it was of course Margaret Thatcher but that was handled respectfully and decently by all concerned.
There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.
