Last night I finished a book I started 3 days ago. I haven't read that quickly since before year 12. So good to have some freedom now :)

What were you reading? :)

It's called 'An Ember in the ashes' by Sabaa Tahir. I couldn't put it down. I recommend it to all of you (If you're into fantasy).

That sounds interesting! :)
There's a books and reading board here if you have any other books you'd love to talk about as well! ^-^

(I love books that you can't put down haha. They're the best kind ^-^ )

I'm about to move house and just ordered 100/40 NBN after suffering for nearly 10 years of ADSL2+ (around 4-5Mbps download).

You don't know how good it feels.

**provided NBN tech actually defies odds and attends when scheduled.
Might be able to finally d/l fallout76

Blame the government for the botched mixed tech shit. If we had've just stuck to the original plan we'd be in the same position in terms of rollout speed and we'd have fibre to the premise instead of this crap.. but alas it's better than what i've had to put up with so i'm content, for now. :)

Some providers offer up to 250/100 but that's for FTTP only and costs a ton. 5G will never be sustainable or affordable for the consumer with the amount of data the average person uses. If you've ever bought a data only sim or mobile broadband (e.g. using a dongle) you'll know how expensive and little value you get.... and that's with current 4G, not considering the intro of 5G at all.

Anyway, I recognise this is the beginning of an off topic convo so i'll stop there. Safe to say though, I have received a significant improvement (of nearly 30x) so i'm thrilled.

To be fair this cockroach was a lil baby one but still it is still a cockroach at the end of the day.

I have no comeback to this. My post even annoyed me.
