    I hate Ticketek.

    Not if they don't tell you what time you can start queuing.

    I hate Ticketek.

    Back for another rant about ticketek. I jumped onto the website at 11:55am ready to buy AFL finals tickets that were going on sale at 12:00pm. To my surprise it took me straight to a screen saying: "Thousands of AFL fans are transacting right now The Ticketek website is up and running and you are in a queue, waiting for your turn. This is a normal part of the website operation. PLEASE DO NOT refresh this page" 30min later and it's still on that page so I guess the que started well before midday and there's a whole bunch of people in before me. Starting a que before the tickets go on sale in a new one for me. Would be nice if they'd let people know about such changes.
  4. Update your Airport Expresses people, airplay 2 multiroom support has just been added. Only to the latest model though (A1392. circa 2012). Quite a welcome and unexpected update. https://9to5mac.com/2018/08/28/airport-express-airplay-2-homekit/ Too bad apple recently decided to discontinue the Airport line, but some shops still have stock if you want one.

    FS: B & W 685 S2

  6. What, 2015? That went quick! Turntable hasn’t sold so I guess it’s still on the market, but no good for Geth unfortunately as he can’t pickup.

    F1 -- 2018

    Yeah, watched in again last night and it would have been pretty much impossible and unreasonable to penalise him. He gained a lot of distance but no extra position. I do think however that Max is bloody lucky vettel screwed up like he did because otherwise it probably would have been Max either going off track for no reason or causing a collision with Bottas if he stayed on track. He'd already overcommitted before vettel screwed up.

    I reckon Max should have been penalised for going off track at the start of the race. Fair enough he had an incident to avoid but he took the piss and gained an advantage. He almost came out in front of Hamilton!.

    WTB: iphone 6S or better

    Yeah, and I might still go that way but . $230 screen + $40 for battery still leaves me with a phone with some other issues. Thinking replacing the lost might be more sensible.
  10. Item: iphone 6s or better Location: Melb Price: ? Extra Info: I comprehensively shattered the screen on my iphone 6S on the weekend so am after a cheap replacement. I've considered getting apple to repair but decided against it as the battery life is also a bit rubbish and the speaker has always been too quiet. Anyone looking to sell an iphone 6S or better? min 64gb.
  11. I went through this a few years ago and getting the booze selection and quantity right was a stress. If you dig back in these forums you'll probably find my thread very similar to yours. I was fortunate enough to have a good mate in the industry who helped in choosing and buying the wine for a good price. 1 white, 1 red, 2 bubbly. I can't recall what exactly but nothing too sweet or too heavy. I reckon you need more bubbly than for just one toast. We went through more bubbly than either white or red. For beer we had a selection of kegs from a local craft brewery. More expensive than cheap slabs but for great quality 'craft' beer it was a bargain ($300 a keg for beer that sells for $80 to $90/slab). The brewery supplied all the hardware free of charge and refunded any kegs that weren't opened. It's a good option if you want fancy beer, but having said that I'd go for slabs next time. Not sure about Guinness or Kilkenny as they're best out of a pint glass, and that's probably a hassle you don't need. Have a majority of normal beers (Coopers and XXXX) and a small qty of specials like the stout & Dry&lime if you want. Best to have some light beer too...a six pack should do it. another tip is to buy from a place that will accept returns if you over estimate. Dans do it. https://www.danmurphys.com.au/weddings

    Renting a vehicle or anything else

    I once booked a compact car from Avis and was expecting a free upgrade to a small car due to an ‘upgrade to next class’ promo they had on. I was upgraded from a manual compact to an auto compact (the same model car).

    F1 -- 2018

    What a bloody sensational race! Everyone seems to be talking about Max's incident with Vettel, but IMO the earlier stuff up trying to overtake Ham is where he really threw away his chance. If that hadn't happened there would have been a very interesting fight between the two RB drivers, and it would have been sensational to see Max properly schooled by his old and wiser teammate (if of course max didn't take them both out in the process).

    WTB: Camper Trailer

    Just a quick bump as I'm still in the market and I figure now that summer is done there could be campers being offloaded. I've pretty much settled on a Jayco Swan or Eagle for about $10K.

    Bluetooth turntables - a waste of time?

    OP... your can get separate bluetooth transmitters for about $20, so you don't need to restrict yourself to the LP60-BT. You will need line level though so a TT with built in phono stage or a separate one. AT-LP120 would be a much better turntable than the LP60 sure you can just drill a hole in that cabinet?
