Have any Rioters (staff, guest or otherwise) heard anything about when the Canberra Centre’s reconstruction of their Food Court/lower level is due for completion other than ‘late 2013′? (Though that’s a broad window, so they’re still on track.)
Anything? Investigative journalism, low-level publicity or some other source?
Geoscience Australia’s Top GeoShot photography competition is now open.
Geoscience Australia is looking for a collection of photographs that capture the essence of Earth science. The image can be anything from an unusual land formation, a link to our dynamic planet or even your favourite landscape. We are encouraging entrants to be as creative as possible [...]
I was in Victoria last month and managed to not see the lower speed signs around a level crossing on a country road.
I was clocked doing 100km/h in a 80 km/h zone.
I was wondering if the road authorities are organised enough for me to lose points on my ACT drivers licence as a [...]
I am just back from a weekend down at the far South Coast of NSW. As with many coastal towns, there is a large population of elderly drivers down that way. Not once, but twice did I end up in an intersection ‘stalemate’ with this genre of driver.
On both occasions I was at a four-way [...]
About 10:30 pm last night (Sun 1-Sep) I was heading for bed when I heard a loud explosion and we lost power for about 30 seconds. The bang was loud enough to wake up my kids, who all normally sleep like logs.
I called the Belco cops, and they said they’d had a brief power outage [...]
I just read that Gwen Shirlow, who took over the vet practice in Braddon from Peter Burgess, has left there.
Does anyone know where she moved to?
I urgently need a reliable vet for a complex medical problem my cat is suffering from.
Hey the weather is getting nicer, so maybe you should go talk a walk in it?
Maybe help raise money for a totally awesome playground while you’re at it?
Possibly at this walk to raise money so Boundless can build an awesome inclusive playground event.
Here’s the details:
The Boundless Canberra team would like to invite all Canberrans to [...]
Does anyone know of a decent camera repair place in Canberra?

The Animal Justice Party is preferencing liberals Zed Seselja over the Greens Simon Sheikh in the Senate. They are also top of the ballot paper, which means they will get the donkey vote. If you’re voting for the libs anyway, obviously it won’t matter.
If you think you’re voting for animal welfare however, you’re actually sending [...]
Raiders players must be embarrassed putting their hands out for payment particularly over the last 3 weeks – if they are then they should be!
Against Manly I switched off as I usually do these day’s when it reached 24 nil .
Manly were keeping time with the clock the white flag had been raised [...]
GPO BOX 158,
Canberra City ACT 2601
I don’t normally make a big fuss of things as I am quite a tolerant person, however the other day I had a couple run ins with ACTION BUS drivers. Both incidents occurred at the same intersection within 1 hour of each other. One face value they may [...]
Hi fellow rioters my fiancé and I are looking for an acoustic guitarist/band and mc for our wedding this year, does anyone have any recommendations?
Look forward to hearing everyone’s opinions!
I was riding home along Bindubi St bike path, Thursday night, dark, cold and raining.
Suddenly, along the roadside, I hear a loud gunshot. I look over to see a man pointing a gun towards the ground where someone was lying.
It took a second or two to make sense of the scene. It was an [...]

The first magpie attack of the season was reported on the 23rd of August last year.
Coming up to the anniversary of that date, I wanted to invite Rioters to add pins to this google map http://goo.gl/maps/SSdGr, as swooping magpies are encountered this season.
The Brumbies have facebooked a desire to get the wisdom of the hivemind on their members’ caps for season 2014.
What do you think and what would you do differently?
The Brumbies 2014 cap design I like best is…
I am looking for a cheap used tricycle.
I am bulding the young uns a billy cart and need the rear axle and gear/cog assembally.
The rest could be broken, no issue. I have checked a few bike shops but they essentially only have new tricycles.
Where would be a good place to look for [...]
Where can I buy raw milk in Canberra?
I really want to make gua bao, except that I don’t actually want to make the bao part (even David Chang of Momofuku says he buys his bao).
Does anyone know where I can obtain these buns- they are usually frozen, no filling but I’ve tried a dozen different Asian grocers and can’t find them [...]
NineMSN has the depressing news of another loser in ASIO embarassing the nation:
The Canberra-based man, who cannot be identified, was four years into his career at the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation in 2011 when he met a foreign diplomat who would later become his wife, the Canberra Times reports.
When he became aware the woman [...]
My GP has advised me to chat to a psychologist for help with depression + anxiety issues.
The psychologist the GP referred is unable to see me due to age restrictions so I am looking for other alternatives.
I found an old article on this site from 3 years ago, so am hoping people [...]
Trying to find a place in Canberra, preferably on the North side, to get my in-fills done.
So far the one place I tried didn’t sterilise their equipment and did a horrid job.
Given here in the ACT, we won’t have any change to the status quo when it comes to this federal election. Both lower house seats will go labor and senate will be labor first the liberal second.
For a bit more fun can you guess what the order of the minor party’s will be in [...]

I have lived in my townhouse for almost a year, which is inside a large open complex with a 12 standalone townhouses and communal carport/carpark.
Prior to buying the place, the executive committee and the body corporate had organised and funded to install a large security gate around the complex – which is opened by a [...]
The Canberra Times tells me that a 90 kg kangaroo has received cataract surgery.
What is the world coming to?
Raiders V Canterbury
Canberra Raiders the perennial loosers finished for another session – ah but we are getting used to it.
What with an administration that has sacked or let go of perhaps some of the best footballers currently playing what else can we expect.
Now joining Josh Dugan, Tod Carney it looks like Ferguson is [...]
