Is yours a Buffy Scope? It reads pure buffoonery 'FSB' all the time on your bench.

True. He's down there in the krw and Trader4 category. You can take a horse's ass to evidence, but you can't make it think. -- Bill Sloman, Sydney

Trump's trade war may convince a lot of companies to pull some manufacturing out of China but I think it will be along the lines of "can't put all our eggs in one basket, need to put 20% in China, 20% in Mexico, 20% in Vietnam, 20% in Africa..." etc. rather than do anything in the USA again.

the real surprise is that Phil has only been posting for 15 years I thought sure he'd been here since 1990.

** LOL - never had access to the internet until 2001. First using dial up, sharing the same line with my phone - bad idea. Next with dial up and two phone lines. Then with ASDL and back to one line. Finally, as of last month, using optical plus co-ax cable link with Australia's new NBN. NBN = "National Broadband Network" - means I now enjoy 12MbS down link and 1MbS up, about 20 time faster compared to previously for the same or maybe less cost. Voice phone calls go via the same path, so a premises or a local area power outage shuts off the lot. I still suffer from the inevitable 12 hour time zone offset with the USA ad Europe though. It's 9:20 on Wednesday evening as I write. ..... Phil

That asshole that screwed your entire continent, last I heard is why it took so long. He was some lame phone guy here in the US, and then went over there and now you guys are ALL forced to use a single provider from what I remember. But I do not know the current situation, because at the same time I heard that (2010), I was building for 17 cities in Australia, 14 rack multi-million dollar satellite baseband gateways using two 8 meter dishes each, including one for Tasmania, so you guys could get Internet access anywhere on the continent. I do not know what you pay. The sat hooks are expensive and probably only about 10Mb/s. But folks out in the middle of your nowhere areas can get it. Heck those funny soundin' Aborigines can even get it now. Send their texts up to the sky like those sparks they sent up to John Glenn back when he went over..
