That only seems to make sense, though, if you’re not already a Foxtel subscriber. They want to charge those people $25 a month for an extra box.

But you can't put your Foxtel app on your mobile device onto TV, which is what I'd like to do. It'd save me getting an extra box at $25 for the study... once I get the TV in there.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Laid the soil down in Casa Del Fui. North of the wall is done, so is the backyard.
Got Tuesday off work to recover from the Paul McCartney concert. Taking advantage of that day to finish off the front yard, and we’re laying grass on the weekend!

Perfect.

Bought a Ziegler and Brown two burner a few days ago. Excellent little BBQ!
So far we've grilled up some prawns and two snapper. Tasted exquisite

They look awesome Dubs! I’ve been craving Prawns lately.

Heading up to Port Macquarie for Aus Day weekend. The hotel we’re staying at has a cool little bar on the ground floor with awesome Prawn Rolls. Planning on having them everyday
