I’m hearing you Judi B! We only have satellite NBN and don’t get mobile phone coverage. The satellite NBN works really well which is great, but they’ve just changed the allowances, so we have a lot less download (20 gig per month) for more money. We have a wireless modem, so we use internet on our mobile phone to send messages (using whatsapp app) due to no mobile phone coverage.June 6, 2015 at 10:14 pm #536358SnagsMember
Under the previous government the rules where if you had a home phone or satellite you where eligible for the NBN when it rolled out.
Obviously things changed.
With an election not that far away I wouldn’t be surprised if the real NBN was reintroduced with the original conditions.
Still would take years.
Though if there wasnt a change of government I would have had the real NBN now not the promised hobbled one in unforseeable futureJune 7, 2015 at 3:22 am #536359Judi BKeymaster
We are in a blackspot for everything and had to get satellite for TV not really impressed as we don’t get to see any local adverts …. you see an advert for something you had been needing and then all hopes of a good deal are dashed as its for Alice Springs/Darwin or Townsville.
Satellite TV drops out in heavy rain so it would be the same for internet.
What really annoys me is that some people who had ADSL got satellite, so they took a place of another who wanted internet or was still on dialup.June 7, 2015 at 7:25 am #536360

We’ve built a chicken run off the coop so in went a few fruit salad trees and arrowroot to go with the lime and pigeon pea plants. Creating our own chicken jungle 🙂 . We’re on wireless internet here at our new house. The cost of satellite was incredible!June 9, 2015 at 10:18 pm #536362
Frosty here this morning, I think I will put off weeding until later.June 9, 2015 at 11:19 pm #536363
just watered the carrots, turnips and beetroot, that was the extent of my gardening,
patchwork going on hereJune 10, 2015 at 1:04 am #536364GilianMember
Good Morning,Spent part of the weekend bagging up Organic sawdust in the hope that someone will buy it at the Farmers’ Market next Saturday. First time I’ve had anything to do with sawdust, except to sweep it out the door! Views on its usefulness on the Internet are mixed. While loading up the sawdust from the paddock we attracted the attention of the timber man’s small group of cattle – two highland cattle amongst them, gorgeous. I wondered if there hair can be spun? Also collected a trailer load from somewhere else of cow manure for our garden.Spent part of Sunday watching husband at Archery shooting arrows with his longbow, doesn’t interest me. Then finally getting the minutes typed up for Wednesday’s meeting – took me 5 weeks to get them typed up, hope they are ok, now for the Treasurer’s report, we have very little money, so it won’t take long. Hopefully the Farmers’ Market will top up the bank account.Black Krim Tomato grown at the Community Garden.Cheers,June 10, 2015 at 3:43 am #536365
We have finally connected a smallish tank to the hen house, now we just need some rain to fill it. DH is wrestling with chicken wire to secure the girls revamped home.. Foxes here are a problemJune 10, 2015 at 12:19 pm #536366dentydogMember
Wasn’t actually today but over the weekend, did some weeding – does anyone have any tips on dealing with oxalis (soursob) it is an absolute pain. Have even come through the raised beds (which have about 50cm of mulch/soil in them)… takes over our whole yard in winter!June 11, 2015 at 12:10 am #536367
patchwork again here, haven’t done any for a good couple of years, and I’ve discovered the duel feed on my new machine,
so lots to catch up on and this will pretty much be it for a few days 🙂June 11, 2015 at 1:24 am #536368
I have had some success killing oxalis by using white vinegar and a little bit of dish washing detergent in a spray bottle. You might have to give it a couple of goes.June 11, 2015 at 3:06 am #536369GilianMember
Hi there,This morning I made 5 min. bread with spelt flour, taste and texture are ok but it didn’t rise very far. I think that is normal with spelt flour. Green tomato chutney is bubbling gently on the stove, for selling at Saturday’s market. Also need to put something in the biscuit/cake tin for afternoon tea. My go to recipe is Anzac biscuits, but I’ve made them so much I’m sick of them!Trying to come up with a good way to store my seeds instead of tossing packets into a box along with going-to-get-around-to-it loose seeds. I’m going to try monthly and store seeds when I hope to plant them. I have tried storing seeds alphabetically at the Community Garden. It looked nice and tidy but I kept forgetting what was in the containers and do you store Spring onions under ‘S’ or ‘O’?Cheers,June 11, 2015 at 7:47 am #536370KasaliaMember
Rough time with my dementia mum, hope it improves.
