Telstra Bigpond Unlimited* Plans finally capping users

Well, well. After having this broadband service with Telstra Bigpond for a while, Telstra have changed from “perhaps we’ll cap you when you go over 10gig” to “we will cap you when you go over 10gig”. Not super-happy about it, but hey, I was expecting to happen one day. They’re stating that they’ll cap accounts to 64kbps (that’s a small b, so bits). People over at Whirlpool are bitching that they can’t get downloads up to 64kbps, but hey, you’ve gotta remember tcp overhead as well. So far, 64kbps seems ok for checking my emails and general web browsing, although I think alot of this is helped along by my proxy server. I might look into ADSL2 later on in the year when pricing starts to get a little more competitive.

Get, get, get BUSY

Get busy, now hear me,
do your funky dance and get dizzy,
do it right now, not later,
if you wait too long you might fade out,
I’m a rapper, you’re the dancer,
clap yo hands, move yo feet fast to my new sound
cause I’m getting down comin straight from the north side of Chi-town…

We’ve got a guest

Holly the cat

There’s this gorgeous little cat that’s been hanging around our house for almost a week now named Holly. She’s only got three legs, but is extremely friendly. The last couple of days that I’ve come home from work, she’s been waiting next to the kitchen door for me. I’m not quite sure what I’ve done to deserve all this attention from her, but since she’s such a nice cat, I don’t really mind. It does worry me though as to why she’s been hanging out so much. I know where she lives. Her collar has been taken off and then put back on again in the last week, so somebody must be taking care of her. But in the evening won’t go home. She just stands at the kitchen door, meowing until I let her in. I drove past the owners house tonight and it looked like there’s noone home at the moment, so perhaps she’s just lonely and wanting some attention.


For Rozie’s birthday I bought her a pair of the Adidas Superstar 35th Anniversary Andy Warhol edition. Then on Monday this week I got myself a pair of the Lee Quinones edition Superstars. Love ’em, although a lot of people ain’t feeling it and I have to admit, the whole range didn’t turn out as cool as I was expecting. Photos to come.

Coming to Sydney Soon

A couple of my favourites producers/musicians are hitting Sydney soon. First in is Carl Craig. He’s playing at the Gaelic Club on Saturday 26th March. Then on Saturday 16th April Recloose is djing down at the Basement. Highly recommended for some deeper vibes. Then apparently over the Anzac Long Weekend is my favourite NZ band, Fat Freddy’s Drop a hitting it up.
