Thieving flatmate

By 25 January, 2014

A friend of mine shares a flat with a girl who keeps going through her stuff, taking things and taking money from her wallet. They each have a lease so I assume she cannot evict her. Do you have any ideas what she can do. Calling the police is not going to make for good flatmate relaions. ...


Well goodbye

By 24 January, 2014

Having started RiotACT in 2000 I’ve been informed my services cannot be retained. A new buyer for the site is potentially in the wings and who knows what their plans will be? It’s been an exciting ride and who knows what the future will bring? (I’ve thought we were done before). Th...

A quick search on the interne...

By 24 January, 2014

The University of Canberra Brumbies Offical Supporters Group “The rUCkus Crew” seem to be in pre-season training for their season of shirtless, brass fueled shenanigans again in 2014. I think they may need counselling though… I mean look at these guys… I got pretty upset over...

By 24 January, 2014

So, ACTION has once again failed to deliver anything useful. We were thinking about going to the big day down at Regatta Point on Sunday, for the shows, displays and fireworks.
