its not a major thing but there is this youtube channel who used to create amazing videos, very well made and very funny, movie quality content with 1/100 the budget, i thought they were fantastic, now all they do is create clickbait garbage and its not even good anymore, their videos were getting a huge amount of views so they didnt even need to turn into clickbait garbage, ah well, still sucks though :P

Welcome to the phenomenon of getting older, looking back and realising that something else has gone to shi.it! :db:

The actor Sam Neil

what a total and complete nobhead

how he struggles to find the time to ride around his winery on a tractor or the constant talk of what a private and humble man he’s, yes we know Sam you keep telling us on national TV

tit

Haha yeah i seen it, i sort of like him he's a bit different and actually a decent down to earth person and has helped alot of aussie make it in Hollywood. You can find extras rolls for aussie shows/movies via his agency, I've had a few friends do some extras work who met him on set and is happy to chat to everyone.

Creating exams, and heavy duty assessment tasks.

I probably hate composing them more than kids hate doing them.  :(

 

Just thought I'd get that off my chest as I try to wrap up a task for my poor Yr 11 kids for tomorrow. :lol:

I agreed to write some papers for a professional org

Double pain! (at least I get paid for them though).

Writing multiple choice is such a pain as well, hate that.

Have you tried turning it off and on? :D

Seriously, crappy connection is a first world problem, but its still a crappy one to have. Especially now. My router used to crash regularly and randomly and it took forever to get it fixed (replaced). All the 'troubleshooting' was like "yes, done this already - several times - but I'll humour you and do it again".

lol my issue is if i am playing a game where i dont need sound i usually listen to youtube videos, music or videos with a lot of talking and not much else so its easy to go through data fast which is fine if i have wi fi........i am able to pick up next doors wi fi connection but not my own :P i dont use their wifi because that would be weird but i got their connection :P

 

i mean this is the company of the modem i have and their list of controversies

I guess it all depends on what the neighbour is like. My next door neighbour lets me use her wi-fi...she's 70+ been there for decades,a good person , and rarely uses much data so tells me to go for it. She also makes the best cakes and pumpkin soup....lol

^^^I read them the riot act, but said I trusted them to do it ethically and honestly on line, and that seems to have worked. Don't think any of them outsourced it! :lol:

The task worked well, thank God (took me til 1.30 am the night before they had to do it for me to be happy with it).

It is nerve-wracking composing tests and assessment tasks worth 30% of their whole Preliminary HSC marks!

Writing Reports and composing such tasks are my least favourite parts of teaching.

Writing reports becomes easier when you remember that nobody reads them ;)

Designing tasks for the prelim is easier when you remember it doesn't count for anything :P

(Good on you Wendy :) )

Haha...yes those are good points to bear in mind.

My kids parents, in China, certainly can't read them! :lol:

And you're right about the Prelim HSC...but the conscientious kids get so anxious about Assess Tasks and tests, your heart goes out to them.

The current Telstra add for the modem that switches between the NBN and the mobile network.

Shows beyond doubt that the Murdoch inspired change to the FTTP protocol was an unbelievably stupid idea.

Murdoch has f***** us up as usual

My work really do make some dumb decisions.

We provide stationary stuff to the education department (schools, universities, colleges etc.) and we usually have some term specials. This term was for lamination supplies. So, lamination rolls are on special and they are a common item ordered.

So, they told us to send the brochures to the schools via e-mail to advise them about the special...however, our stupid purchasing officer forgot to order a batch of lamination rolls and now schools that have processed an order for the rolls are calling asking where's the lamination rolls that they urgently requested? We were advised from the purchasing officer they won't be in stock until late June/early July...thus meaning that schools/colleges/universities are cancelling their order and looking to order them elsewhere or from our competitors.

I "love" my job...especially when I have my manager questioning me why my sales are low.

If only my work did cater for food.

Since we are talking about Lamingtons...is it better with or without the cream and jam?
