Data Recovery services in Canberra

By 26 August 2009 20

I couldn't find via search that this has been asked before, so can anyone give me any advice on a good local service for data recovery services? I'm looking to get information off a formatted hard drive that was running Windows XP and has all the photos of my baby's first 8 weeks of life! There is o...

Are Canberrans a bunch of NIMBYs?

By 26 August 2009 50

There have been a couple of issues floating around recently which has made me realise just how anti-development Canberrans tend to be. First, there’s the immigration bridge which seems to be condemned as an ‘eyesore’, despite no firm design having been put forward; then there’s the new ASIO ...

The Edition

By 26 August 2009 11

'The Edition' on display at Megalo Gallery White books in a white room. Lots of them. This art exhibition at Megalo in Watson is at first quite mystifying. For his solo exhibition artist Nick Stranks has gone to a lot of trouble to cast a matched set of books in aluminium, bronze and plaster...

Poker machines, the money, and Labor

By 26 August 2009 55

[First Filed August 24, 2009] Poker machines are a strange game. In the long term, the only way to win is to not play. And yet, Canberra still gambled $56 every second last financial year, just on the pokies. Canberrans love sport, and Canberrans their Clubs, and Clubs help make the ACT be...

No Utilities Rent for Actew

By 26 August 2009 10

The ABC has this story on the Federal Court ruling that the ACT government cannot impose a utilities tax as its unconstitutional. Leaving a nice big $18 million hole in the budget surplus. Well done on Queanbeyan on questioning the imposition of these fees. My question is, does this tax have a ...

Digital radio unpossible in Canberra

By 25 August 2009 27

I’m not sure how many Canberrans care about radio, but I quite enjoy listening to the wireless. This is especially the case during the footy and cricket seasons where a bloke can go about his business in the shed with just the dulcit tones of his favourite sportscaster for company. So, the adve...

[First filed: August 24, 2009 @ 11:49] John Hargreaves has announced that, having last week murdered the Fringe Festival, he's killing off Queen's Birthday fireworks. Some days it seems as if the man gets up in the morning devoted to making Canberra a worse place to live. He is offerin...

Half Price Gym Membership anyone?

By 24 August 2009 13

Ok, it may seem like I'm getting a little desperate here, but I just wanted to make a call-out to anyone out there that might be interested in getting some cheap(ish) gym membership. CISAC's Club Lime is offering a promotion at the moment of 2 for 1 Platinum membership. That is, instead of the...

Driving schools in Canberra? Any better than the others?

By 24 August 2009 20

Can anyone suggest a good driving school in Canberra?  A Google search just brings up a series of rather ugly websites that all claim to be the best or at least the most popular.  Should we just play it safe and go with the NRMA driving school?  Also, as the person learning is in his ...
