Re: Dick Smith

Just scored a brand new Alpine single DIN CD headunit, with full iPhone integration, front USB and 3.5mm stereo jack, 3x preouts.....aka all the usual crap that once would cost you $600+ not more than 2-3 years ago. For $135, from JB Hifi :o Old habits die hard I suppose. This current range will be ...

fuck you admin very funny

[slightly OT] - but after playing with my new 85mm this morning, there's absolutely no bloody way an iPhone or any fixed compact can match a decent slr camera/lens combo.

Will post proof later on.

Camera Review - Canon G9X

Canon compacts have always been good in that respect - full manual control. My S70 which I bought in 2005 had practically every common feature that an entry level dslr did, the only thing letting it down was useless ISO range (but this was 10 years ago).

FWC - Food / Wine / Coffee (beer can come too)

Lutece Bistro & Wine Bar - Bardon. Went there a while back and can't remember exactly what I had but it was all top notch and very good value. 3 courses with wine for 2 came in well under $150.

Monteiths Black Beer. Bloody decent, and well priced. $18 for 6. Ten bucks for a six pack with $30 spend this week. Or maybe it was $13 @ BWS. Can't remember, been to a few bottleos lately Still think white rabbit is better, and Tooheys the best. Monteiths beers a little bit over rated for the pric...

Passed in? Not terribly unusual, sounds like they wanted stupid money anyway.

I was actually looking for white rabbit dark ale, as I had a couple on tap the other night, and they were fucking delicious. Couldn't find it so the guy recommend the blacks instead.

Re: Home Automation (FOR TIGHTARSES!)

or you could just put the car in neutral, yank the handbrake, undo your seatbelt, grab the door handle, step out of said vehicle, swear like a bastard if it's pissing down rain, put the key in the garage door, push door upwards, then repeat all previous steps in reverse?

Home Automation

Professional home cinema installs/automation can easily hit 100k + and beyond. The sky is the limit. Like anything you can buy fairly standard equipment or stuff that's well and truly high end.
