Hairs, you say it's a new NBN tower & then they talk about switching over - has NBN or anyone else advised that you can now get access to NBN?
My ISP is Exetel.
I've had a few problems over the 10 years or so I have been with them. Pulled them up a few times on their(Telstra's) BS, and our connection improved.
Yes, doing a NBN search address shows that we can access NBN.
An ISP Agent(Good Mate) has also said we can.
Next week I will churn to the NBN, see how that works out.

That's good to hear - hopefully your problems are over?

Bit strange that nobody has been in touch with you though? My understanding from reading other forums is that when NBN becomes available in an area, NBN Co advise you that it's now ready to go, so contact someone off this list of ISPs to sort out a new plan & transferring across, & you've got to do it within 18 months from now, because that's when the existing copper lines will be switched off at the exchange - if you haven't moved by then, you lose everything - phone, internet, fax, alarm ... Be interesting to find out how far down the 18 mths you are, & how long ago you could have switched?

Good luck!

Why do Arnotts bother putting the break line in salada biscuits if it will not follow the line

Rant 2

Concrete poured at 32mpa should hit its strength a lot quicker than it has, costing us a fortune at the moment waiting for it to hit strength

I remember when doing a major commercial project that we had to take 3 test cylinders every 3rd truck of concrete. 1st was tested at 7 days & was expected to be a minimum of 90% of specified strength, if it didn't measure up, the concrete company was sent a please explain. The 2nd cylinder was cracked at 14 days at which it was supposed to be 95%±. The final test was done at 28 days at which point the concrete had to have achieved its rated strength, if it didnt then the preceding & subsequent loads weren't paid for until a test came up to scratch. You can imagine the cost impliactions to a concrete company so most test cylinders achieved the desired MPa at 14 days. Most of them are 40MPa+, i found cos its cheaper to add a 100kg of cement when mixing it. In all the tests & loads out of about 800m³ i only ever had one fail & only by 1.5MPa. The architect & engineers gave the supplier a pass, because i had records of placement & could determine the location of the placed concrete & was accepted as non critical.

Unless your going to load the concrete with 5x its capacity  & it was poured within the last 3 days, why would you be waiting. Sounds like someone is bullShitting you about delays  ;D

Here is one for you that relates to both your rants.
Why does concrete crack everywhere except the expansion joints or the saw cut relief lines

Same with chocolate, never breaks on the mold lines. Reckon they're just there so there's less chocolate needed.
Chocolate companies that don't use the mold lines, always have thinner chocolate.....just sayin

Some boofhead probably added more water, or you got ripped off. Concrete should hit strength real easy in the current weather!

1. The climate change rally in Sydney. They closed of a big section of the city so that a bunch of people could walk down the streets. What the hell did this accomplish? I had caught a taxi from the airport and was trying to get to Circular Quay, but ended up getting stuck in a traffic snarl of people trying to get into or around the city. My 30 minute trip became an hour long trip. Combine that with all the other cars, trucks and buses, and that's not helping their climate change cause. What did they accomplish by walking around in the city that they couldn't have done in the Domain, where they started from (and left a bit of litter by the looks of it as i drove past... twice).

2. Inconsiderate people at the train station. Having given up on getting through the city, i jumped out and caught a train from St James to Circular Quay. My wife and i were the only ones getting off our carriage but we were confronted with a wall of people about 10 deep waiting to get onto the train. Many of them seemed to have been involved in the climate change rally. I was under the impression that people on the platform should allow the disembarking passengers to get off the train before trying to get on. I stood in the doorway of the train, taking up most of the doorway as i'm a pretty big boy and was carrying all my bags, waiting for a path to clear. Everyone just looked at me as though i was inconveniencing them by not getting out of the way. I ended up just wading into the crowd, using my forearms to shove people out of the way so i could carve a path for my wife to follow. All it would have taken was for the people directly in front of the door to take one step away and i would have had a clear path. The fact that i was able to push them out of the way shows that they were both capable of moving away, and unwilling to take even one step. What the hell is wrong with people?!?

People have the right to voice their opinions, but they need to be mindful of other people and how they affect them.  I do not know what they achieved doing a sit-in at our parliament yesterday.  Felt sorry for the security staff that had to carry them out of our building.  And what was the go with one standing up and doing the haka!  :-\   Perhaps go back to your parliament and do it there.  Kevin

I am quite convinced that many of those muppets that go and these demonstrations would'nt have a clue or even care about what the protest is about. It's obvious that most of them don't have jobs or they would'nt have the time to demonstrate during working hours and as long as it does'nt interupt with their dole collection time they are quite happy to inconvenience everybody else. As for the "Haka" that does'nt belong here and has no place in front of our parliament. >:( >:(
