I’m currently down the road, parked where i can get mobile signal, hot-spotting off my phone so vpn works on the laptop.
ADSL in our area is down. Telstra (who maintain the equipment) has an estimated resolution date of 2nd June!
While we have Starlink, we use ADSL as our active failover (trees and starlink = outages). Thus I’ve now got a flaky connection.
Mind you, others in the area are still using adsl as their only connection and are stuffed at the moment.

So nice to have postal voted and thus not have to worry about remembering to go out to vote today.
If you need it, here is your reminder to VOTE. Go! Go do it now!
(also vote to the left, kick these useless bastards out). #auspol
It's all happening at Cedar Creek (well ok, it's over now).
Last night a 27yo intoxicated man got separated from his friends coming back from the falls, and was lost, sparking a massive search and rescue effort.
This morning, he walked out under his own steam.
Scuttlebutt from the police rescue team is that he has warrants out for him for drug related offences.
Needless to say, residents in the area were a little worried overnight.
