Re: Sleepless Night

My internet is still down. I reported the problem to Telstra who went through a long list of checks before acknowledging a problem and they advised it should be rectified within 3 to 5 days.

Re: died and woke up in Ariel heaven!

Re: Sleepless Night

The weather conditions changed last night when a southerly change brought winds of 80kmh. The strong wind lasted for just over an hour.
