just wanted to give a quick review/shoutout to backblaze...

since getting my new QNAP NAS (thanks to Bird  :cheers: ), i have moved my offsite backups from amazon glacier to backblaze, more specifically their B2 cloud storage product.

was a snap to sign up for and configure on the QNAP, with built-in integration for easy backup job creation.

i have uploaded approx. 300GB of documents (over 12,000 files), music (over 39,000 files) and pictures (over 18,000) to three separate 'buckets', with no issues at all.

the music upload was the longest, taking approx. 36 hours, using my 30mbps NBN FTTN upload connection...

according to backblaze, my first bill for this storage will come to a grand total of 86 cents...  ;D

it has been easy to setup, easy to configure and easy to integrate...  can't ask for much more than that...

would highly recommend any of backblaze's backup products or services...

no affiliation, just a happy customer...

"Having a button instead of a lever frees up more space and it's safer in a side-on collision (nobody wants a handbrake in the leg)."

WTF? do people drive around with the handbrake on? everyone I know when released is down level with the console.. what they getting rid of that too?? I didnt bother reading past that one...
 The world truly is getting dumber.

if any blame is to be portioned, point it to the NRL for their inability to get rules in place that are clear cut (shoulder charge, obstruction, ball stripping)...
all codes are guilty of this sort of Shit... they panic in rules without thinking them through just to be 'seen to be doing something'... AFL do it all the time as well.

Apart from the nut behind the wheel they're working on removing I'm not so sure about digital speedos for analogues having had one in a Toyota Echo-

Be nice if they came up with a better more robust standard for the ubiquitous cig lighter socket like the move to standardised USB mobile phone charging but then we all have a lot invested in cig plugs already. The cig socket can be a PITA off the bitumen so should they agree to switch to Merrit plugs.

He was never going to get done. He's the golden child.
Him & cameron smith have something over the NRL!
Did you see the look on smith's face when he got sin-binned this year? Priceless!!
Silverfox

really?

perhaps have another look at the multiple tackles which were the same or worse than what slater did... with no charges being laid...?

the conspiracy theories are laughable, at best...

the shoulder charge rule was not designed to stop players from being pushed into touch.  it was designed to stop head-on collisions.

and in any case, his arms were up and touching the player.  not even a clear cut shoulder charge, IMO...

if any blame is to be portioned, point it to the NRL for their inability to get rules in place that are clear cut (shoulder charge, obstruction, ball stripping)...

I don't see what all the fuss is about.. Tackled him into touch - both got up and played on like any other normal tackle.

maybe they need to just close up and join these dudes http://touchfootball.com.au/

Golden child?

Bought our daughter a big daddy deluxe swag a few weeks ago. She received it very quickly but has only just got to pull it out of the bag to use on the weekend. She has discovered tears in the floor material that (not sure I will explain this well) go along the line of the material ie side to side across the swag. We have started the warranty process and will see how it all plays out.

Dunno mate. Bob Lindner was one of the committee members so I imagine he would stick up for the Qlder (fair)  side of things ;D
