I just got home to Sydney from my other home in Perth. We watched the State of Origin rugby league last night and made comments about shorts.

A pleasant surprise on returning home is that I have ADSL2 now. It was upgraded while I was away. In Australia we have a backward highspeed broadband system controlled by the ex-state run telco. There is ADSL and ADSL2. My old ADSL account was for 50kb/s, this ADSL2 can run at about 7500kb/s, but I only have an ADSL modem so it is running at about 200kb/s.
