They missed a golden opportunity to change "Go To Jail" into "Go to Senate Enquiry"!

I'm literally completing the refi paperwork now, but ended up going with a 2 year fixed rate. First time fixed, so we'll see how it goes. I...

loans.com.au has offset account, but that makes the rate +0.10% (i.e. 1.95%)

Oh, it could be related to if the DSL lines have been switched off in your suburb? Not sure. I was getting pretty average speeds (sub-25 I...

OP I feel your pain about phone calls! I was on that plan, but gave up on it recently because there are better offers around (though only...

What's the mx keys like? It seems to get lots of good reviews, but I'm not sure I can justify $150+ for a keyboard. Anywhere I can try one...

This is what I do not understand about Uber Eats. The cost of laziness must be huge! You're (general, not you personally @Ade99) paying...

100%! Absolutely ripe for phishing. Just like the Apple iCloud leaks of a few years ago...

But they block your account access after usually 3-5 incorrect tries (plus other measures which I won't even pretend I know). Then you have...

More accurately, banks would get slammed by shareholders for upgrading IT systems unless absolutely necessary. And at the end of the day,...

IKR! Two years ago, whenever I walked into a bank wearing a mask, they never looked very pleased and I always had awkward questions to...

I jumped ship at whatever their last ridiculous change was. The thing about having to increase savings before getting the bonus interest or...

Agree, disposable card is fantastic! That's basically all I use it for.

Just leave it in High Growth until you're ~5-10 years away from retirement.

Statistician here. Can confirm.

See if you can update your email address to an alias you can easily filter. E.g. with Gmail you can add `+spam` to the end of your username...

Ordinarily the fact that ING has only 4 digit access codes (maybe they allow a few more digits, can't remember now) would be really,...

Yeah as many other comments have said, Bitwarden is almost a drop-in replacement for LP, and many people from OzB (and elsewhere) have...

Length is really your best friend when it comes to passwords. The longer the better (with some caveats). As Quantumcat says, swapping...

Yeah I can understand why they do it, but it's not an either/or scenario. They could use SMS by default, _and_ enable app based TOTP for...

Thanks, that's actually an interesting thought. I'd been working off the premise that everything gets locked, but as you say, I can log...

Yep I have them backed up. I'm thinking of starting a thread about this though to see what others do.
