    Fuck him. The arsehole uses his position as Telstra chairman to advocate against the Adani mine – meanwhile the service side of his own firm is collapsing the business. The fucking fee raking parasite

    Great work!

    I don’t know how the fuck Telstra remains in business, the vast majority of their products don’t work:

    I told the dude I had nothing to discuss with Mullen and that I would be asking for time to speak at the next AGM.

    I love it when JC gets cranky Telstra. Reminds me why I ditched them years ago and won’t have anything more to do with them., ever.

    Well said. It’s also indicative of how useless judges are in this country in general when one is applauded for actually, you know, doing the job she’s paid to do by taxpayers. Like upholding the law, for instance.

    The lack of activist judiciary in this decision is a welcome change.

    Did the goat fucking piece of shit consummate the marriage? Rape of a minor should be the next stop on this bus.

    Christmas should be exclusively for Christians. Everyone else should be at work.

    That’s why the progressives are trying to rename it Holiday Time or whatever. So they can take the holidays without feeling like hypocrites.

    Their abc readying their billion dollar bully pulpit to rage that electricity rationing and gas rationing is because deplorable racists haven’t allowed australian to go hard enough at socialism.

    These people that oppose enough ruinable windmills to make socialism work are, literally, Nazis.

    [ sky has just announced that twitter reveals we spend more per household on coffee and alcohol than we spend on electricity.]

    – SA ruinables-induced Statewide blackout
    – National ruinables-induced gash shortage
    – National ruinables-induced high domestic and Industrial Energy prices
    – Predicted National ruinables-induced baseload shortage

    Yet Aunty willfully can’t see the elephant in the room.

    Farmer (dumb as dogshit) Dave is adamant that legalising SSM will help him find a bum buddy.

    “It opens with a polite country boy thank you, as Dave thanks “everyone involved for making this a massive issue because, you know, when you’re alone and living in the bush a lot of times all you hear is the bad stuff”.

    “So this is extraordinary to hear that it’s a national issue to let people like me who want to fall in love, and want to spend the rest of their life with one person, it’s just incredible.”

    “He then targets some of the “weird” arguments against, targeting the Coalition for Marriage advertisements featuring mums fearing what a yes vote means.

    “There’s that woman that says ‘oh my God, they’re making my kids role play’,” he says.

    “Newsflash, you stupid cow. That’s what every gay person’s had to do nearly all their lives, especially people in the country, like me.

    “It sucks to be gay in the bush. You want to kill yourself. And you try. Many times. Because it’s not a choice. It’s how you are.”

    “Let’s just get on with it, it’s 2017,” he says.

    And if you know anyone that’s really nice, I’m single as sh*t, send ’em my way.”

    Rachel Stevens, 29, and her partner Kayla Jones, 26, pleaded no contest on Friday to child abuse and child neglect charges
    Affidavit states Stevens hit her son with a hammer, and both she and Jones whipped him with a belt
    Toddler was hospitalized in December 2015 with lesions to his face and seizures, and doctors then found he had multiple broken bones
    He also suffered seizure and two strokes as a result of the attacks

  27. Senile Old Guy

    Northern Territory Police have received a report that a local resident in the remote community of Gunbalanya was allegedly seen filling in several copies of the same-sex marriage survey and marking them “no” rather than delivering them to their intended recipients. The same complaint was made to Federal MP Warren Snowdon, who said it was evidence the survey could be “rorted and manipulated” Australia-wide.

    From the ABC, who are starting to worry that the “no” case might poll a bit too well, so they are now running stories to discredit it. And note how the ABC fails to mention that Snowdon is ALP, which is opposed to the poll. Most would see that as pertinent information. But the ABC has no interest in having balance on this issue; they are full on “yes”.

    From previous, at the time, checking some tech chat on the Whirlpool forums re your enquiry, seems (speed/voltage*) regulation** of entry-level Gen-sets is more of an issue than output waveshape (some inverters are modified sinewave (stepped squarewave) output); i.e. a large ‘load step’ – sudden load change – can result in voltage ‘droop’ and subsequent over-speed and over-voltage – the over-voltage subsequently damaging sensitive electronics; one anecdote was of playing with the speed control of a 2-stroke cheapie that was just managing to power an air-con unit, resulting in frying the control unit electronics of the air-con.

    *Directly proportional in alternator output, hence the need for an AVR on the Gen-set’s output.

    JC – Seems to be a thing. There’s a bunch of cafes in Sydney near UTS called Spice Alley which is cashless. This is what they say in their faq:

    Why is Spice Alley cashless?

    To improve speed of service, safety and hygiene Spice Alley operates cashless. You can either tap and go with your normal credit or debit card. Or you may visit the cashier booth where you can transfer cash on to a pre-loaded card.

    I have no idea why they think this. My experience is cash is usually faster and more secure and how hygienic is a credit card from a stranger? It may well be the safety reason is the real reason.

    Here Joe

    Legal Tender. Australian banknotes are a legal tender throughout Australia (this is provided in section 36(1) of the Reserve Bank Act 1959 ). A payment of coins is a legal tender throughout Australia if it is made in Australian coins, but this is subject to some restrictions about how much can be paid in coin.

    and

    This might come as a surprise, but according to the Royal Mint, 1p and 2p coins are legal tender only if you are paying for something costing 20p or less: once you have amassed 21 or more 1p pieces, your coins contravene the Coinage Act 1971 if used in a single transaction. Even if you are buying penny sweets.May 15, 2012

    Oh there’s this. It’s meant for the US, but I think the law is pretty similar here too. Legal tender is about the discharge of a debt – not immediate transactions.

    If the ‘transaction’ is instantaneous then anyone selling anything can refuse. However, if the payment is to settle a debt (e.g.: for a taxi ride, a meal in a restaurant etc) then it is illegal to refuse legal tender. They are not however obliged to give you change!!

    You know how people reckon the only way the SEC finds out information about shoddy financial dealings is by doing what the rest of us do – read it in the papers…. (because employees there are too busy watching porn on their computers at work).

    Get a load of this.

    The Securities and Exchange Commission quietly announced on Wednesday night that a 2016 breach of their online filing system, EDGAR, resulted in “access to nonpublic information” which may have been used for “illicit gain through trading.”

    While the hack took place last August, the SEC apparently didn’t figure out until recently that the hackers may have used the nonpublic filings to profit from movements in the market – according to a 5,000 word statement on cybersecurity released at 11 p.m. EST on Wednesday. Buried within the report, 1500 words in, is one paragraph disclosing the hack.

    “In August 2017, the Commission learned that an incident previously detected in 2016 may have provided the basis for illicit gain through trading. Specifically, a software vulnerability in the test filing component of our EDGAR system, which was patched promptly after discovery, was exploited and resulted in access to nonpublic information. We believe the intrusion did not result in unauthorized access to personally identifiable information, jeopardize the operations of the Commission, or result in systemic risk. Our investigation of this matter is ongoing, however, and we are coordinating with appropriate authorities.”

    That’s right, send non public information to the SEC and someone will hack them and make insider money on the info.

    Governments and their agencies belong in the fucking circus.

    Potentially a lot of gensets that are marginal for sudden load changes could be improved with a larger flywheel.

    The speed/voltage electromechanical physics of electric motors* and alternators is the same – speed/voltage ‘droop’ on a positive load step is a facet of AVR’s also IIRC, the inverter simply converts the AC output to DC (so frequency is taken out of the equation) which it can better regulate and ‘chop’ to a more stable AC output in both frequency and voltage.

    *You can run a nameplate 60 Hz motor at 50 Hz and it will require a proportionally lower input voltage (i.e. it will run at e.g. 1500 rpm instead of 1800 rpm).

    I have a suspicion the move to advertise everything as being ‘yes’ supporters will lead to a backlash

    Yep. I have that feeling too.

    Being an optimist and living in Queensland, I’m not going to buy a genset yet. But if I do I think I’ll go with a disposable 5-6 kw AVR genset at less than half the cost of a 2 kw inverter genset. I think the biggest risk may occur if the genset is allowed to run out of fuel and I’m not running any PC’s.

    It must be a lie. It’s not on the ABC.

    Anyway I went to pay and they would only take credit card and wouldn’t except cash. Isn’t that illegal? I thought there was a law that ensured cash was legal tender in discharging a debt or making a payment below a certain sum.

    It’s the third time I’ve heard this “No Cash” deal – last times were from butchers who claimed “Health Issue.”

    To change the subject, I went to function the other night where Dr Bob Brown was the guest speaker.

    I’ve never had much time for Bob, but he was strangely impressive. For starters, his health and sanity appeared to have improved exponentially since he left Parliament. In his last days in the Senate, he looked like an incompetently animated corpse, cadaverous, glassy-eyed, a permanent rictus, twitching and gibbering manically; but now he looks, healthy, relaxed and happy.

    And his presentation was informative, humorous, and self-deprecatiory, almost entirely devoid of dogma or didacticism and he didn’t even mention SSM.

    At the end of the function, he went out of his way to go around and personally thank all the grunts who had put the show together, even the wait staff and the security lady in the front door. I’ve never before seen a VIP at this venue do anything like this. Of course, it may have been deliberately contrived, but it looked genuine and we were all pretty impressed.
