  1. Heading over to Hong Kong in a few days and just wondering on other members experiences. Any must see things to do or buy, where to eat etc. Planning to go to disneyland and watch the lightshows so far but haven't got that much more planned so any recommendations would be great. Thinking about buying a watch, sunglasses and shoes but not too sure where to go and how much I should be paying..
  2. Internet connection has always been intermittent over the past 5 years or so. For months it will work perfectly and then randomly it will drop out and the phone line will also become unuseable occasionally. Resetting the modem helps sometimes but lately it has just said that the DNS server is down and resetting does nothing. Have had 4 different modems over the years and the problem has been the same. Also been with two different providers and no difference. Currently with iinet. Also when the internet is playing up, if we recieve a phone call it goes down for a solid half an hour. Thinking it may have something to do with the quality of the phone line in our house, or maybe even the line in the street? Anyone ever experienced anything like this before? And do I just call iinet and get them to check the phone line or is that telstra's job?
  3. iphone 5

    I heard Optus told their staff they were expecting to start selling them late October/early December..
  4. Motivational movies

    Can any one recommend any motivational movies. Getting kind of addicted to them lately. Especially the ones that really make you want to get off your ass and do something. Been watching a few war movies, sporting films and some documentaries. Things like Tears of the Sun and Coach Carter etc..
  5. Jack3d

    just saying jack3d may not be all that healthy... heard some stories of people who were on it like it messed up one guys hormonal levels for a month after not taking it and he couldnt get it up for that long
  6. wars generate a lot of money. actually a war is probably the only thing that could save america's economy now But aren't the americans againts war at the moment? Not too sure Obama wants another war when theres already two they have yet to end and his people already wanting it to stop. not really a large scale war though. afghanistan is just draining resources and public opinion. but the US's economy is f**ked and being bent over by china who hold a LOT of power over the US through foreign bonds so they need to do something drastic

  19. Anyone on here a pilot?

    It's not that hard to get into civil aviation in sa, and it's now on HECS so not really expensive either. It is a pretty good option at the moment, there's a few courses like that around the country as well. It's still expensive though, and you wouldn't be getting a good pay back for 5+ years after getting your CPL. On top of that, jobs within the Aviation industry are hard to come by and never really advertised. Commercial airlines are putting a lot more pressure on their pilots these days as well. And they have started cutting salarys fairly drastically as well (however it is still quite good pay). Most people I've heard have gotten into commercial flying after being with the RAAF and have been told by pilots its very unlikely to get a job with a big airline otherwise.
  20. Motivational movies

    Doesn't necessarily have to be a happy ending. Anything that makes you get up and do something I guess or realize that there is something more to life than you thought before. I'd probably call Seven Pounds motivational, or inspiring at least. Some great movies mentioned so far
  21. Post up your internet speeds

    Mine came back approximately the same and I'm on iinet in Adelaide but don't think I've ever broken 1Mb/s on a dl and I'm on ADSL2+
  22. Virgin Active?

    They will probably get a lot of people from how they structure their memberships; Rolling contracts with an initial commitment of 4 weeks (or a bit longer if you join between billing dates) which automatically renews for additional 2 week periods unless terminated. If you want to stop your fortnightly renewal, just give us 3 days notice. I think the contracts of most major gyms are what turns people away from them
