The food court atrium in the Canberra Centre has developed a large steel frame for what seems to be some sort of internal roofing.
Anyone want to suggest what could be the cause?
This will hopefully be seen by Gunghalin Al who seems to know all about what’s going on above us at night. I’ve heard that there will be a meteor shower on the night of Monday April 22nd and was hoping Al might be able to give us some info on which direction we should [...]
I’m looking for a yoga class that’s very gentle, as I’m recovering from surgery and have a weak right shoulder as a result.
Preferably northside, but I’m happy to travel for the right place.
It would need to be outside of work hours.
I identified a place in Torrens (but the class times don’t suit) [...]
I need an advice on how to deal with an unprofessional photographer. Here is the story –
Last year we got married and hired a professional photographer for two hours. We received our photographs 4 months after our wedding. The pictures were great but we started noticing that some pictures were missing that he took. [...]
Being a bit of a Costco addicit, I travel along the Monaro Highway quite often (coming on and off at the Hindmarsh Dr junction.
What I have noticed is the increasing use of what I like to call the ‘back door’ manoeuvre, where people, who really can not wait two seconds, merge on and off from behind [...]
So I may or may not have recently been slapped with one of the new ACT library ‘administration fees’ after being unaware of a book being out for the last couple of months thanks to letters being sent to my old address =(
Does anyone have any experience with not paying library fines in the [...]
Katrina has mailed this in raising some pretty fair questions:
Hi, just want to make the public aware that the BBQ’s (near the park and carpark) at John Knight Memorial Park are out of order!
Just what we needed when we arrived to host a kids bday party for 27 kids!
No sign and when I [...]
So I want to start looking at getting my motorcycle license. I’ve honestly no idea where to start with it, do I turn up at a riding school in full leathers?
Do I bring my own bike? Should I buy a bike before I try get my license?
Should it be brand new or used [...]
Was just after any suggestions for any good venues for my father’s 60th. I am after any good venue suggestions but as well as clubs, pubs or bar rooms I was wondering if any of you had been or hired yourself like a hall or something and brought in caterers?
Its still early but thought [...]
I’m new here. Been lurking for a while but wanted to ask for some advice.
I will soon be getting a reverse cycle air con (split system) for the home and wondered if anyone knew of any good installers, either ones who sell and install or just install.
So, I’m new to RiotAct but am hoping that someone will have some information on a alleged cat killer in Evatt.
My neighbour has advised that two of her cats have recently been found in ‘mass cat grave’ [20 cats] in an Evatt park discovered by an ACT ranger.
Has anyone heard of this?
As I was waiting for the lights to change at Belconnen Way & Coulter Drive this afternoon, I saw, out of the corner of my eye, a dark-haired male cyclist wheeling through the intersection. What particularly caught my attention was that he wasn’t wearing a bicycle helmet. A quick double-take confirmed something even more startling: [...]
I’ve stumbled across these guys: http://www.transportbygeorge.com.au/
From the website it looks like they are running a mini-cab operation of sorts – you get a taxi, but only if you ring for them.
Has anyone used them? Are they any good? Is this entirely legal?
I’m curious as to the legalities of the mini bus lanes at many Canberra intersections. I understand that they are there to allow busses a head start on the green so they can merge more safely in heavy traffic. But all too many times I’ve had busses come barrelling up from behind when traffic [...]
So where’s the place to be for two up this year?
It’s been a while since I’ve been.
Last time I went to The Irish Club and it was quite good, but I’m interested in suggestions!
Was just wondering if anyone had any experience dealing with any of the following builders:
They all seem pretty competent with good inclusions – hard to choose between them. Are there any other builders that come recommended?
[Ed - let's stick to positive contributions people]
I have a couple of years worth of tax returns to do. I have a trust that has its own tax file number which makes things a little more complicated – otherwise I’d just do it myself online. Can anyone give me a ballpark figure for how much I might expect to pay for this [...]
I recently started riding my bike around the fantastic bike paths here in Canberra. I’d like to go riding with my dog (Belgian Shepherd – Best Dog Ever), but I’ve been told previously that it’s illegal to be in control of a dog whilst riding a bike.
Is it? I tried google, but kept getting [...]
Having recently returned from the Middle East, I am starting to feel the cold.
Could anyone tell me where I might buy an overcoat (not a jacket) to be worn over a suit.
I will try DJs of course but grateful for any other suggestions?
I’m hoping some old-hand, bonafide Canberrans can answer this one for me.
I’m from northern NSW, and I lost all confidence in pronouncing local names after being (vehemently) told that Namadgi is pronounced na-MAD-jy rather than NAM-a-jai, as it would be up north.
So what about Gingera? I climbed it on the weekend, and it was beautiful. [...]
I was recently contacted by my real estate agent to say that she had arranged for a new stove to be paid for and picked up at a large well-known white goods supplier. So I rang them to arrange payment and to let them know that the plumber would pick it up in a day [...]
Any tips on places around Canberra that are good for training for obstacle course races?
For example, parallel bars, extended monkeybars, hurdles and lots of stairs.
I’m training for the Mens Health Urbanathlon in Sydney in June and don’t know where to start.
Any tips much appreciated.
I’ve just been googling and decided I needed to consult the hive.
I would like to book my 8yo in for 2 days of horse riding during the 2nd week of school holidays. Can’t really afford 4 and have care for the other days.
But it looks like the main equestrian places I can find online require [...]
We have just been served a notice to attend ACAT for dispute resolution for breaking a lease. They have lied througout their application (the real estates).
Looking for a lawyer in Canberra who is good with ACAT matters.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
Public servants and other employees who have secure employment and are happy doing what they are doing and where they are doing it have one major advantage: they are less likely to find themselves on the scrap heap when they are 60.
The federal and ACT public service, in addition to a swag of professional [...]
As the title states, the wife and I are looking at installing plantation shutters in the living (2 windows 1.5 x 2m) room and kitchen (1.5m x 1.5m). Just wanted to know if anyone had any experience with the local companies or sole traders? An idea on cost would also be great (in total [...]
I drove into Canberra on the Federal Highway on Saturday arvo about 4pm. Just before the big roundabout at Antill Street there was a major police gig happening. The left lane was blocked by a police car with flashing lights, and in a clearing on the side of the road there were maybe half a [...]
We run a fantastically enlightening and friendly monthly book club that is looking for new members, due to some members no longer able to attend.
We love to read and discuss literature and contemporary fiction.
We meet once a month at each others houses and it’s a good excuse to have a few nibbles and a glass [...]

Hi rioters, I am looking at applying for a promotion and have to do a selection criteria up. I’m awesome but I’m not good at selling myself.
Has anyone used one of the many companies that write the criteria for you? If so any good ones to speak of?
I’m looking for recommendations for a good doctor on the North-side. Like the recent question I’m more comfortable with a female doctor, but my main criteria is that I’d like a doctor who keeps up with the latest research and who is pro-active in getting to the bottom of things.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
