Hello fellow rioters. I thought I would throw the question out here to see what knowledge you guys have.
I am not a wordsmith by any means so apologies in advance if this is disjointed and or confusing, I will do my best and apologies for any spelling and or grammar issues.
I have a dilemma on my hands [...]

Anyone know what the deal is with Gungahlin Drive between Well Station Drive and Sandford Street citybound? There’s been a few mornings this week where its gotten to be like there is a bottleneck like there was when the GDE was one lane – only once you crawl to the lights at Sandford Street, [...]

Can anyone recommend a reliable local company to do an annual service on a Daiken Reverse Cycle ducted system?
I don’t want to use Climate Master due to a previous poor experience.
I know art is subjective, but when I think of creativity I think of something like this – in France’s mechanical animal theme park.
The main piece – the elephant, cost $3.5mil to create funded through EU arts funding, however the public can actually ride this at the cost of 7euro a pop.
It attracted 285 [...]
Antony Green from the ABC is predicting the demise of the tally-room, a longstanding part of the election process.
This year commercial networks will not be hosting their coverage from the tally room, and several states have already dropped tally rooms from their local elections. As it stands it may only be ABC News using [...]
There are plenty of road surfaces appearing on the Southside (e.g. Gowrie, Fadden, Chisholm) with the new, cheap, loose gravel on tar method of re-surfacing.
This is a noisy surface that increases tyre road noise, produces a poor ride especially with firm sports suspension and this is a surface that leaves loose gravel for weeks/months. [...]
I’m starting to get some cracks on the brickwork on my 1970s house and the internal walls.
According to the Internet, these sorts of things aren’t a problem until you can fit your hand into them… But I’m not keen to wait that long.
Who does one call to look at this sort of [...]
This just in…
It’s about time we lobby the ACT Government to widen our bike paths!! How can we be expected to fit our cars in these piddling ½ sized lanes? In peak times there is an obvious need for the average motorist to bypass the law abiding losers waiting patiently for a variety of reasons, [...]

On the Action Bus website they have pdf timetables for their bus routes that includes times when Easy Access buses will be running. Easy Access is essentially a nice way of saying a new bus will be running on a route at a certain time rather than the dinosaur orange buses.

A recent study of over 1300 Australian Public Service staff has found that more than 70 per cent experienced neck pain in the last year, well above the average of 12 to 34 per cent. Does the answer lie in improvements in ergonomics like sit-stand desks or in the way that work is organised-or what?
On the 11th of Feb 2013, I was returning to the HACS building in Belconnen to drop off some work. As I was pulling in to the driveway next to Zeffirelli’s that leads to the car-park area; there was a bloke in business attire that stepped right in front of me with what appeared to [...]
Just wanted to remind everyone that salmonella and other food borne illnesses are also transmissible person-to-person. We’ve all seen how diseases can spread rapidly through Canberra so here’s some tips from everyone’s favourite waitress (me!) to help keep this outbreak contained.

I am starting to look at getting my veggie patch up and running. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what they think of Aquaponics? Is it easy or hard? Is it better than a traditional veggie patch?
I’ve noticed that building a traditional veggie patch might cost me about the same as a [...]

Seeing as all the online ads look…iffy at best, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good on-site PC repair service (I’ve got hardware issues) in the ACT?

What do you see in the photo?
People that are irrationally and recklessly endangering their lives.
People recklessly endangering their lives, and they should have a law and fines imposed upon them to make them stop.
Ordinary people going about their day.
