  1. The What's Pi$$Ing You Off Thread..anything Goes!

    Yeah, especially since it's just as I'm flying out on break
  2. The What's Pi$$Ing You Off Thread..anything Goes!

    My boss was sick earlier this week...one of the other seniors suggested perhaps he shouldn't be at work...guess who's currently got no voice and coming down sick

    Dear god, what is THAT sorcery?! Morning all! Fly-out day!
  4. Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    Wednesday between 8am and 1pm, apparently. Miele deliver for free, but I paid for them to install it and remove and take away my old one too. After all the issues my GF has had with her dishwasher and the back and forward with companies, I'm happy to pay Miele to install it - that way if anything ever goes wrong it's entirely on them (which is what the lady at the shop said as well).

    Yeah, fark that!
  6. Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    I've had a dishwasher in a previous rental a couple of houses ago, so I definitely know what I've been missing out on! GF also has one at her place. My house actually came with one, but it was a really old dishdrawer and one of the circuit boards farked out ages ago and would turn itself on and run cycles randomly...so I just turned it off at the power point and left it. Couldn't justify the cost of fixing it, when it was old and horrible anyway, so figured I'd put the money I'd spend on repairing it towards a new one. Was chatting to the missus about it recently and saying I was about ready to actually buy a new one and she reckons it'd be potentially hamstringing myself with respects to potential kitchen design when I redo my kitchen in the future, as I may want a fully integrated etc in my new kitchen. Took what she said on board and found that Miele sell stainless steel fascia panels for some of their fully integrated dishwashers. So I thought that'd be a good way to go - means I can use that fascia for now and then potentially use a proper integrated panel when I redo the kitchen. Got myself this one: https://www.miele.com.au/domestic/dishwashers-2510.htm?mat=10470900&name=G_6660_SCVi 5-star water rating and 4.5 star energy rating. Has auto-load sensing, so I can run a half-size load and it'll only use like 6.5L of water...which is considerably less than doing them by hand!

    Morning! One more sleep!
  8. Cool Stuff You Just Bought

    I miss fresh bread-maker bread. Mum used to make it when I was younger, god it was awesome to come home to! Speaking of appliances, didn't buy it today but I bought a new dishwasher last break and it gets delivered on Wednesday when I get home...pretty excited to not have to do dishes by hand anymore! Also considering using a chunk of the bonus I get paid this week to get a big solar setup on my roof so I can run the ducted aircon all summer without worrying about the associated power bills!

    Got one more 4-day swing after this, but I'm done with FIFO after that. Will be doing a couple of site visits per month for training/support, but won't be long stints at least and I'll be home every weekend

    Morning! One more sleep after tonight and I get to go home
  11. Show us your PC and/or Gaming setup

    This is usually when the missus and I sprawl out on the sofa and watch tv haha.
  12. Show us your PC and/or Gaming setup

    Doubt it. I only really used it when I was home during week in the days and didn't have other stuff to do. I get the distinct impression there's even less chance I'll use it once I'm home all the time, as the time after getting home from work will be spent making and eating dinner, tidying up and chilling for a couple of hours before bed.
  13. Show us your PC and/or Gaming setup

    Trent, I reckon grab a couple of cheap 22" monitors for work and keep yours at home. Or buy a cheap 22" and take that and your current one to work and get yourself a new one for home. Speaking of sim racing setups...think I've used mine like 3 times since I bought it all...that was a well spent chunk of cash
  14. The What's Pi$$Ing You Off Thread..anything Goes!

    Fark that! I'd be taking my own monitors in fo sho! I even bring my own mouse in haha.
