When I moved in to my apartment I connected to ActewAGL for electricity and soon started receiving gas bills that included the normal service charge and some gas consumption. After a while the meter reading stopped increasing and from then on I have been only getting “service charges” as I am registering no gas consumption.
Went to collect some tickets from Ticketek in the City and was shocked to find that they are no longer there!
They’ve been replaced by some sort of Mini Bar opening soon..anyone know any more info?
Any suggestion for a restaurant / cake shop that serves really good panna cotta?
I’ve been dying to eat one and I just want one where I can have a slices for take-away.
We have an old shed in our backyard. It’s in pretty good condition but ugly as hell. It was built when the house was built 50 years ago, and because it predates current planning rules as an existing structure we can keep it but not build a new one.
So Mr T and I want [...]
I have a neighbour in a newly developed estate that has cut into their block of land. That’s fine, so long as you retain the embankment that you cut. This neighbour hasn’t retained the embankment that they cut into, but claims that he is doing something about it (but I doubt that’s true as this [...]
As seen in Dickson this lunchtime.
Anyone care to explain why a shed would be in there?

This is going to sound strange but I came back to my car after watching a movie just now to find that my front driver side hubcap missing.
Noticed a few others around with the same problem….
Am I being paranoid or has this happened to people recently?
As the colder weather approaches I’m in need of something fashionable to cover what remains of where my full head of hair used to be.
As an early 30′s male who’d rather shave his head than look like a 60 year old bald man I’m having trouble finding anywhere that sells a wide assortment of [...]
Was hoping someone had some information on the new cafe in Mode 3 in Braddon?
I think it’s called 86 (it faces Elouera Street) but Google came up blank.
Went past there on Saturday evening and again yestedray morning and it was packed.
I am posting this for my partner, I do not wish to mention his exact trade nor the company for obvious reasons, as I wouldn’t want anyone he works for that may possibly read this see its about them,
My partner is working for a company as a sub-contracter, and has been with them for [...]
I am searching for a good doctor in Canberra preferably Northside.
I recently got some test results back and am not happy with how my current doctor handled the situation (she searched the condition on google, telling me just to leave it and see if it causes problems in the future). She didn’t make [...]
After I received a quote from a long-known local energy efficiency businesses I asked them how many bags of insulation they will provide for the $’s quoted and the number of square metres that they will cover in the roof space. Seems that it’s a case of ‘that’s the price and we will insulate your [...]
Body Corporate levy increases by 65% per year — well above what Independent Property Group said when purchasing the property.
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?
