Technically yes, but there is no way I'm walking carrying the games crate!

I'm considering that. :)

Next question: I looks like I can't get Optus cable at the new place (I'm going to ring to confirm), so who do you recomend for ADSL?

Internode. No question.

Quick question: is it worth paying $20 a month for a fixed IP address? That will be the difference for the home plan with the dynamic IP address to the SOHO plan with the fixed IP address,

Unless you're planning on running a server of your own or doing a lot of network gaming (ie Half-Life style, not World of Warcraft) on that connection - probably not.

If you wanted to run a server that wasn't mission critical, you could use a dynamic DNS service anyway.

Cool.

That's what I thought, but I wanted someone else's opinion.

Thanks.

I think I can get a spotter's fee if you use them - not sure. Doesn't matter if not, I recommend them whole-heartedly.

iinet is one of the best in Melbourne, I think they might have a Brisbane presence.

So... add wheels & a tow-rope & call it exercise.

Oh, I forgot - they have an ongoing ADSL2+ rollout at the moment. Not in Taringa as yet, but worth going onto their demand register...

So I noticed. It's probably worth it.

Cool. That's about five minutes away from the house I stayed in when I went up for Expo '88. Number 1 Little Llama St Chelmer.

We use TPG, $59.95 per month, unlimited, uncaped...it is very good. (but have a look at the "http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/" forums to make sure)

Indooroopilly...cool. Was a nice area when I was there (circa 1999).

Are you anywhere near Long Pocket?

Heck, I should look it up on the net...

Nah you aren't. But right on the forest...that should be nice. Hope the traffic noise isn't going to be too bad - but you survived our place so it probably won't bother you.

When I inspected the place I didn't hear any traffic noise. The road it's on (Taringa Pde) is a minor road, so not that much traffic, and it's far enough away from the freeway with a lot of bush between so I couldn't hear a thing from it.

It's going to be nice not having noise to deal with! :)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
