Yeah, The Chaser's Age Of Terror Variety Hour. That was actually a proposed title for the War On Everything (another was Thank Allah It's Friday).

It wasn't the ISP... just all the web pages suddenly didn't want to load. MSN stayed working though!

Yes, and it's agonising to choose!

DYFL, Mofo, LNOE, Velvet Dress, Please, and WUDM are all winners in my book.

Actually, that is your ISP. I forget the exact problem, I just remember a friend on aaNet/EFTel having that very problem last year. There's a fix for it, I think involving proxies.

I can't even remember who we're with for net at the moment. Probably Optus. They and Telstra both suck, but the cable thing is nice. Housemate wants to change that and/or the phone, though... do you tech savvy folks know if VOIP is worth having?


http://www.austu2show.com/gig.htm

They seem to be making Cliffton Hill a regular thing... I can't remember if I've been there or where it is. I wonder why they stopped playing the Irish Times....

But that would be a bit packed up for a meet up for us lot.

What about April 18th at the Clifton Hill Hotel?
Where the hell is the Clifton Hill Hotel though? If it's readily accessible by tram or someone can pick me up, sure. I don't have any pressing demands on my time, just three Porcupine Tree gigs 25-27/04.

Dunno about the VOIP. We had ISDN, which was just crap. Its a totally diffrent Thing I Suppose.

I saw them at the Irish Times, maybe they're earning more money at the Clifton Hill place?......

Ah, you're on cable? Then yeah, Optus or Telstra it'd almost certainly be. I know that if I had cable, I'd ditch the phone and just use Skype for everything. As it stands, I'm on broadband so I have to keep my landline. And there's no way I'm going cable unless Internode are offering it.

I remember when you were on ISDN! And I was on fuckin' dialup!
