Pauline Hanson outlines her NBN strategy

I have been trolling the Pauline Hanson facebook page, mainly because I get bored and I have nothing better to do with my life. But last night I hit gold.

Pauline’s plan to replace the NBN.

I thought I’d put something together from my meetings I’ve had. Now just so we’re clear, I’m a novice when it comes to technology, however what I’ve seen in the flesh certainly makes a whole lot of sense.

The technology uses High Capacity Licensed Radio Links – in other words, similar line of sight technology to FM radio.

Here’s the positives:

• It costs around $1 million dollars to make the service available to 20,000 homes ($50 per home)
• The speed super seeds the NBN with rates of 90MB per second DOWNLOAD & UPLOAD
• The user pays around $400 to have the antenna and installation to the home
• Installation time around 2 – 3 days (Quicker than the NBN and ADSL 1&2)
• Unlimited usage – no caps on download or upload
• Cost is cheaper than NBN to use. Plans can be seen on their website

Here’s the negative:
• In dense forest settings where line of sight can’t be obtained, this technology struggles and premises would have to rely on the satellite NBN from what I understand.

There are 9 million premises in Australia, of which 2 million currently have access to the NBN. Of that 2 million, only 1 million have connected to the NBN.

The NBN cost to the Government to have the NBN pass each premises is $2400 regardless of whether they connect or not.

If there are 7 million homes still without access to the NBN across Australia, this new technology could effectively be made available to the remaining premises without access for just $350 million dollars. But for arguments sake, let’s budget a billion.

What’s wonderful about this technology is it’s up and running on the Sunshine Coast, with a company called Flash Fibres.

I’d be keen for you to give me some feedback. This same technology is being rolled out across Europe, the USA, and some African nations.

Technology isn’t my strong point, but I’m always learning.

Yup. Honestly, IT should be left to the experts, not these gumby politicians who wouldn’t know their arse from their elbow then it comes to technology. I’m looking at you every other party except Labor who actually had the best plan so far.

Boffins say "Working in an office is deadly"

Office workers must exercise for an hour a day to combat the “deadly” risk of modern working life, a major study has found.

Sitting for at least eight hours a day could increase the risk of premature death by up to 60 per cent, the study of more than one million adults published in The Lancet found, with sedentary lifestyles now posing as great a threat to public health as smoking and causing more deaths than obesity.



George Pell being investigated by police

Police are investigating multiple child abuse allegations levelled directly against Australia’s most senior Catholic cleric Cardinal George Pell, the ABC’s 7.30 program has revealed.

Victoria Police’s Taskforce SANO, which investigates complaints coming out of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, has been examining the allegations by complainants from Ballarat, Torquay and Melbourne for more than a year.

They include allegations about incidents which allegedly happened during Cardinal Pell’s time as Archbishop of Melbourne in the 1990s.



How Apple and the Australian banks are about to fuck up tap-to-pay

The reason the banks down under aren’t as keen on mobile payment as most feel they should be (with the lone exception of ANZ) is that they spent years getting ahead with their own proprietary technology. This rollout took time and money and they don’t like the thought of Apple and others waltzing in and taking advantage of this infrastructure. This is a poor excuse, and one that if the banks hold on to for too long could result in Australia falling back from our “world leader” status in contactless payment technology. Surely the competitive advantage derived from fantastic contactless infrastructure is nearly at an end, and opening up the infrastructure is the next step forward?



Fuck Ghostbusters
July 27, 2016

Fuck Ghostbusters

I got accused of being a sexist man because I don’t want to see this new Ghostbusters turd movie. But this is not true. Here is why I don’t want to see Ghostbusters.

  1. Its a reboot. Fuck that.
  2. It disregards the movies I saw growing up and still love to this day. Why couldn’t they had just done number 3? Problem solved!
  3. They had to threaten Bill Murray with legal action to be in it.
  4. Feminists are using it as a lazy excuse to rant whenever someone says anything negative about it.
  5. The lazy press is focusing on the hate of this movie from only one perspective.

Apparently if you hate this movie, then you are a sexist pig. I am not sexist and I will beat the shit out of any woman who says I am.

Court fines pro-life douchebags

A TASMANIAN magistrate has fined a long-time pro-life activist $3000 for protesting outside a Hobart abortion clinic, after he flew in from Queensland to challenge the state’s laws.

Queensland man John Graham Preston was charged with three counts of engaging in prohibited behaviour within an access zone, and one count of failing to comply with the direction of a police officer, during multiple protests in September 2014 and April 2015.

Tasmanian couple Raymond and Penny Stallard were also charged over their alleged involvement in the 2015 protest.


I hate people like this. Take your personal views and keep them personal thanks.


Australian government goes full asshole over upcoming census

The debate over warrantless mandatory data retention was just the tip of the iceberg, as the ABS’s removal of census anonymity demonstrates, writes Chris Berg.

If you blinked, you missed it. On December 18 last year, the Australia Bureau of Statistics announced that at the 2016 census in August it would, for the first time, retain all the names and addresses it has collected “to enable a richer and dynamic statistical picture of Australia”.

Keeping names and addresses, we were quietly told, would enable government planners to do more rigorous studies of social trends.

It is only now that the significance of the ABS’s change is spilling out into the press.


IN the past, the census data was kept but not against names and addresses. Now it will. Making yet another target for your privacy to be invaded by nosy government workers, companies and hackers. Do you trust the government with such data? FUCK NO. If you do, you’re a fucking fool and one that should study history a bit closer.

Well, I suppose the government is getting bullshit data from me this time.




Finally I can watch the world burn

Apparently massive fires in Siberia that no-one gives a fuck about are burning out of control. This is a problem. Mainly because of global warming means its a bigger fire than normal and these fires are breaking out a lot more. So more burny burny.

Bigger problem. Siberia sits on permafrost which holds in a tonne of methane gas. We have already seen it exploding through the ground. So this means that our planet is about to do a massive, massive fart and it’s going to kill a lot of people.

I love it that humanity could be wiped out or severely fucked up by a fart. It is kind of apt considering how fucking retarded our government is being whilst scientist shit their pants while no-one listens.

Silly humans.


Citizens Own Renewable Energy Network Australia

We believe renewable energy and energy efficiency are the keys to restoring a safe climate and leaving coal and gas in the ground. The future of our planet, and its people, is too important to leave in the hands of politicians and business leaders. That’s why we’re creating a people-powered movement to fast track Australia’s renewable energy revolution, and you have the power to help make it happen.

These guys seem really cool. They use crowdfunding to provide interest-free loans to community organisations to install solar, which are paid back as a proportion of the savings in electricity. The repayments are then used to provide further loans to other organisations to pay for more solar, and so the cycle continues. It seems to be one altogether cool project. My donation might be modest, but I have definitely supported this cause.
