    The good news is you can, the bad news is under the terms of the merger, they had to fill half of the positions with Wallabies.. and like most mergers, they weren't the good half
  3. Some of us would like to see some people come back, who only will when there is a change of ownership. Alternatively, what impact will open transparency on who the owner is have? If he hasn't sold, perhaps it's time for a new ownership model where a regular group of us all chip in a bit to buy the site as a co-op, and commit to a monthly amount to keep the site going. As it stands at the moment any talk of ownership just gets deleted - be open and let's see if we can find a solution from within the community that helps Willie out and all of us at the same time. Nothing against the current owner (or previous depending on what has happened), life got shit for him and as I said in a deleted thread, we all have to thank him for keeping things going when he could have just said stuff it and stopped paying the bills and concentrated on more important things. If Willie is open to it, give us one thread where we can all talk openly to find a solution that benefits everyone. Something along the lines of who can chip in say $200 each towards the sale and say $50 a year ongoing to keep the site going, and they get a vote on the direction of the forum.
  4. Agree with you on Nash, the only thing missing was a ring, if he had gotten on of them would have been top 10 for sure. Hakeem - would take him over Shaq any day Curry - I can't rate anyone in a 'superteam' as being top 10. Great talent, but can't include anyone who had to be part of a manufactured team to get their success. I put him top 20 as a result For me in no particular order (with a noted bias on players I've seen / seen highlights of more than others): MJ Kareem Robinson Wilt Chamberlain Magic Bird Kawhi (Potential to go to number 2 on all time list) Tim Duncan Kobe Dr J Nash / Clyde the Glide / Kemp A fit Grant Hill would have been in the top 20 as well, really killed me seeing his career tank with all of his issues
  5. Sunshine coast, somewhere around Pomona would be my choice. Got alot of friends have retired / moved there and it has a great community feel about it. GC just feels more and more like people are building on top of each other, my last trip to Bryon (outside of school holidays) was my last - just seemed to be in a traffic jam constantly once you got in your car Another option to throw out is Bargara on the coast East of Bundaberg. You have an airport within 20 minutes, seems to be a great community very active, plenty of groups out riding when I was up there, very active surf club of various ages, active tri club and you don't get quite the population you do with your other two options. Only downside is you don't get hills extremely close by, so look at it as a chance to warm up before hitting the hills, not that far to get to tris at Hervey Bay and Noosa either
  6. If it helps Goughy, I've got the app and I haven't had this experience
  7. This is the crux of it, if you have a good internet connection all the time, then 365 is really not that different. If you have times where you aren't connected to the internet, then you will have some problems. Personally I stay with the office professional version. I particularly find the outlook program frustrating in 365, it reminds me alot of hotmail circa 1996 The other things to consider is with 365 you will always have the most recent version of excel, word etc. You buy 2016, and you have 2016, when you want to update to say 2019, you need to buy a copy (with license) of that.
  8. I don't put Shaq in the top 10 players, top 50 maybe. When Shaq played, it was his size that he relied on, he didn't have any particularly great skills to call on. Always a great player to have on your team to guard the paint, but he never would have fitted in with MJ or even LeBron, either of them would have chewed him out about not doing anything about his free throw shot - top 10 players don't appear in movies where the butt of the joke is their shooting ability. Steve Nash on the other hand had the skill and the work ethic, he always made the teammates around him that bit better. Maybe not top 10, but top 15 at the lowest Disclaimer, Suns fan
  9. Yeah, but that's you Peter, alot more Slowtwits in LA than Cabo, you shouldn't be pissing off Dan so much
  10. Watched Ep 1 last night, did anyone else spend the time wondering why the hell Jordan's eyes were bloodshot looking?

    Our office is taking a cautious approach, really month by month but the overall expectation is most likely October. I got my standing desk removed from the office and I'm now using it to give you and indication of the expectations. The bigger thing we are concentrating on is whether people need to work in the office. We had a new CEO commence March 10, which was great timing, and we've already had discussions about people working remotely more often, changing the office over mostly to hot desks, getting people set up with better home offices etc. The best part out of it was our office is very old (like 1970s with no real updates) and not compliant for diversity recruitment: our wheel chair access is not there, it would be a minefield for someone with low vision etc. We just had a meeting this morning and raised that with people working from home much more, it's a real game changer in this space. We're also relooking at everything to do with the office culture as well - relaxing the times of work to suit the individuals more, does the dress code need to be changed, etc which is all going to probably change as the CEO decides the new org structure which will see some of the senior management team leave. Communication within teams and across the organisation is also going to change alot out of this. Too many of our HR processes were paper based which drove me insane, now all the sudden I'm being pressured to get my 'good idea' of an electronic HR system in place asap (only been asking to do it for 18 months), unfortunately it involves IT governance and then procurement so should be in place for 2022.

    Can someone call Parkside to make sure he is sitting down before he sees the news that the government is giving the population information?

    "As well as receiving a personalised card from the Queen, Capt Tom will be made an honorary England cricketer by former captain Michael Vaughan." Living through a war wasn't punishment enough?

    I was on a call this morning to get some insights into changes for Victoria and returning to 'normal' work - if things keep tracking well there will be a slight reduction in restrictions from 11th May. I'm hearing golf clubs and fishing rods will be good Mothers Day presents for those of us that usually rely on the school stalls to cover this day

    Call himself a winner of the gold for 2 consecutive years? We had an employee earlier this week have to go home a couple of hours into the day, had flu like symptoms, straight to the doctor who sent him straight for testing. Results came back negative. We were chasing information while waiting for the tests on what we should be doing. Basic advice was to keep going with life as normal Mind you, we doubted it would be anything other than negative, no local cases for 3+ weeks, employee lives alone and has only been to local supermarket, work and his home for last 6 weeks
