The site is pretty much totally broken for me too. When I tried to register, it kept asking me to verify a CAPTCHA that wasn't even...

[@live_1991](/comment/5625866/redir): it was sarcasm. He hates speed tests because some huge percentage of CVC capacity is just being used...

[@Homr](/comment/5624979/redir): I used the Silverstone RVZ02. It's ridiculously slim, and can fit full-sized components just fine. You...

They're probably not significantly faster during peak periods than Telstra, which also has a well-provisioned network (but awful service)....

It's often a pretty close match between pre-built and DIY once you factor everything in. However, there's a lot more flexibility in DIY,...

They're definitely faster during peak usage times than just about any other ISP. I'd prefer a bit more expensive and a bit less quota if...

Yep. In fact, he encourages you to run them once per hour, just to make sure Aussie Broadband still has the best network. I haven't run one...

It’s good value if you regularly churn through games, but I generally only do that when I’m taking annual leave. The rest of the time,...

[@Michael1983](/comment/5597647/redir): It's a cultural thing. I know Koreans who literally eat rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A...

For two of us, we just cook one cup of rice for dinner. In a 10 cup machine, it often ends up a bit dry, because most of the rice stays in...

Yeah, even though it’s Steam, some games in this bundle install a SecuROM rootkit and require Social Club. Also, Bully is unplayable on...

This price is crazy. The excise rate for spirits is $82.76 per pure litre of alcohol. Absolut Vodka is 40% alcohol, and this is 700ml....

Yep. It seems they’re trickling in new stock. But at this price (a historical low?) it’s probably not going to last long.
18/01/2018 - 23:53
