  1. This is a UK crime series on the ABC that flew under the radar for me. There have been three series so far. The format is always the same - a skeleton is discovered, identified and then several people connected with the dead person are drawn into the investigation, together with their backstories. To use a quote from the book world, this is real page-turning stuff. No guns or gratuitous violence, just a combination of luck and painstaking police work. I was so impressed with the rerun of series 1 on the ABC that I bought the other two on DVD - a rarity for me these days.
  2. Yes, I've heard that as well. Anyone know the reason?

  6. Sorry, I misunderstood your post. I thought you were after black!
  7. Photos look like they're back. Thanks to the person who fixed this.
  8. You could get them powder coated in black. Shouldn't be too expensive.
  9. There appears to be a mark of some kind about a third of the way up on the back of the speaker in the last photo. Hard to say whether it is a 'chip' or not.
  10. I have the same problem with Waterfox (essentially the same as Firefox). See my post in the Chill Out forum.
  11. You will find many people claiming that 30wpc amps drive Harbeths adequately. My experience, over several years of experience with Harbeths, is that they sound best with fairly powerful (150+ wpc) SS amps in an average room. Amps of lower power will sound pleasant but won't be able to deliver the dynamics that the speakers are capable of.
  12. I haven't had vinyl for over 30 years, but I do remember that in the 1970s and 80s quite a lot of vinyl recycling was going on on, especially in the US, and this resulted in increased surface noise. Vinyl would be melted down and then reused. This resulted in different qualities of vinyl being mixed together. Such records can normally be identified by a swirling pattern on the disc that reflects the mixing of the different vinyl sources. To avoid this, people used to seek out pressings form the UK, Europe (especially Germany) and Japan. Japanese pressings were particularly sought after. i don't know about Australian pressings of that era - the main problem with them as I recall was that overseas recordings were derived from masters several generations away from the original and were often hissy.
  13. Contact the new provider and find out, they should be able to advise the best course of action. Bear in mind also that your NBN activation date may not be the estimated date and may be a few days later. Mine was, but I didn't change providers. Your situation is complicated by the fact that you are. Is your email service through your current provider? If so, I'd suggest you print out important emails and note important email addresses, as these will be lost once you change over. Have you enquired whether you are entitled to a refund of unused days' service if you pay one more month with your current provider?
  14. Your current arrangement (? ADSL+) will cease immediately the NBN is connected and you will have no phone or internet service unless you have another (NBN) plan in place. I suggest you get a move on. Isn't the new provider contactable at weekends? If not, that's a bit of a worry.
  15. I feel sorry for the parents whose teenage sons or daughters have those in their bedrooms.
