What BMX collection?? If you mean the pile of old frames nobody wants and I think they could be useful one day, and the boxes of old bits and pieces. Hit me up if you want anything specific.
Milo doesn't want the DL, I don't want it sometimes. Its just a highly modified schoolbus these days.

Congrats to Emma and Jeremy, and Mrs and Mrs Busi on the new additions to the family.

I hear Twon and Watto are currently having special man cuddles up at Fraser Is.



On a different note, Ill be in Ardeer in a couple of weeks, for a week. Get there on a sunday, training all week, come home Friday. Doing some training on machines.
Can any of the Melbourne folk tell me about this place. Ill only be staying at Ardeer, training in Werribee. Need to know about places to stay away from, good places to eat. Really want to stay away from maccas and that kind of shit food. Been trying to get fitter so want to eat almost kinda healthy.


How is everyone??

Finally settle yesty, got another 2 weeks to go here then 2 weeks off to get things half sorted and then back at it, got a transfer with work so that's made it easier.

Gunna sell the bus to fund a house build, anyone had anything to do with kit homes? I quite like the look of the country style with a wrap around and don't want to a building site cut into the hill so steel frame Harding plank on stumps will suit us pretty well I think, goal is 12months

Re: "The Totaly Off Topic Thread"

I built our home from a kit but even it was not detailed properly and caused me some considerable swearing and cursing and phone calls to the supplier! :bad-words: Then the stupid building inspector came along and said..... This isn't right and I asked how to fix the problem and he goes....I don't know! :crazyeyes:

How is everyone??


The Western suburbs aren't my area so no great insight unfortunately. There's apparently a few good Asian places in Werribee with Red Pepper Malaysian & Chinese Restaurant being pretty good. Khantoak Thai and Ton Lok Noodle Bar are also pretty decent apparently. If you've got access to a car then Williamstown isn't too far away. So good eating places there.

Hollybank treetops flying fox was fun, enjoyed the Don River Railway & liked the Penguin tour at Georgetown, it was great catching up with friends at Scottsdale :)

Re: "The Totaly Off Topic Thread"

Just venting.

Loser of the week goes to National Hearing. I left my hearing aid with them last week with the request that it be seen to be repaired urgently as it's the aid from my good ear, and it is difficult to perform my work (RN) without it - very much demonstrated this week.

Long story short, I went to pick it up today and was told that they have only NOW just sent it to the manufacturer for repair and it will be another 2-3 weeks.

On all the other 13 times I have returned them for service they have been back in 10-14 days.

Put "urgent" on the order and it takes twice as long to get fixed. :bad-words: :bad-words: :bad-words:

These things have been shit from day one. A "normal" amount of returns for the type of hearing aids that I have would be about once every 18-24month (ie, I should have had them serviced approx 4 times in total). 13 + this time does seem a bit extreme. First time was at three months and four months (L and R)

Absolutely crappy design
1. Hard plastic/soft plastic interface with no strain relief at the body junction . Soft plastic is 2mm diameter thin wall, with a fine coaxial microphone cable going down the middle of it (< .5mm dia). Broken or unglued x 3
2. Fine tube acts as a capillary tube and allows humidity to settle on the inside and wick to the ends of the tube via that coax shorting out the connection in the microphone or at the circuitry in the body of the hearing aid.

$6500 as at 8/2010 when purchased. I have been without the use of one of the hearing aids at various times for the better part of 7 months total, and there was a time when I was without ANY for 10 days.

Design life should be 6-8 years.

Any one know a good solicitor (Townsville area) or someone that could give some legal advice re recouping some cost? (thinking along the lines of "not fit for service")

My two (Phonak I think) are now about 10 years old. Didn't have any problems with them for the first seven years or so but after that I've had to have them in for repair about twice a year, usually for new battery closures or switches. I've got a spare set of really cheapies that I use when they're in getting repaired.

Have a look at these. These are my standby aids.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Phonak-OK-UP-UL ... 19e764df68

I could really do with getting a new pair but my last set cost me $8,000 so I'd hate to think what a new set is worth these days.

No private health. Cold, hard, earned money.

Even if I was covered, there's usually a 6 - 7 year turnover so new ones would still be 2-3 years away.

That particular model of hearing aid is well known to audiologists now as being troublesome. There would be no issues getting independent witnesses on the reliability of the aids.
