...most of Sydney? Noooooo way, a cheap broadband plan is like $60 a month, plus a $200-400 installation fee (for all those wondering how much that's worth, it takes ~$2 to make US$1). I'm on a 56k too, though my phone line is pretty much free as is the unlimited hours, and a good line (I get 6k/sec all the time).

In terms of broadband, out of about 120 people in my grade, there are about 5 with cable. No ADSL/DSL people around, it's just way too expensive.

Overall - quite crappy.  (http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~freespace/ubb/noncgi/smile.gif)

Hmmm, that's not good. We here in N Ireland have to keep an eye out for suspiciously parked cars. One trick that they used to use was to put a bomb in a boilersuit, stuff the boliersuit and leave it in the middle of some darkened road. The security forces would turn up thinking someone had been shot and get caught in the blast. The problem here is that terrorists are getting more inventive all of the time. A few years ago they built a bomb into a traffic cone and placed it outside someones house. The target person's neighbour picked it up and now they can't walk.

They're all scumbags with no respect for life  (http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~freespace/ubb/noncgi/frown.gif)

When will it end? Now we can't drink beer, either:

In another incident, a small bomb placed in a beer can exploded in the Co-op supermarket in the basement of the Migdal Ha'ir building in downtown Jerusalem. No one was wounded.

*sigh*
