I just got a notification from Aussie Broadband stating a third party fibre cable has been cut, which explains the dismal speeds I've been getting since 9pm. A friend sent me a screenshot of what looked like customer help chat with the rep saying "We have just lost our 100G Perth to Mel link, 100G Perth to Syd link, and 2x 10G links from Adelaide to Sydney. Something bad has happened somewhere."
Anyone else experiencing a similar experience or is Telstra/Optus/iiNet/etc all still good?
EDIT: Looks like it's Vocus' lines that have gone down, as per whirlpool and other sources. I can also confirm that my Route Tracers have dropped over to IX lines now and not vocus.
EDIT2: Aussie just notified customers that the service is back up and running
I hate him so much. I’ve disliked enough people in my life, but he boils my blood so easily and way more than the rest of them. I had a bad feeling about him as soon as I saw that he was dating a 23 year old, and he’s what, in his 50’s? That’s not to say all couples with age gaps are awful and predatory, but paired with the fact that he generally looked creepy and desperate for attention from the very beginning, it was pretty clear to me how big of a predator he seemed. Everything from his goofy little “hehe my names big ed cus my personality is so big teEEHeEEEE but it’s funny cus I’m small hehe” act and his pathetic little over complimentary stickers ground my gears. It’s been alleged before that he had those pathetic stickers before his appearance on the show, so it’s quite clear to me that he‘s a famewhore.
And you know I couldn’t actually give a flying fuck about him “abandoning his daughter,” because she’s a nasty little slug eyebrowed shitbag who I feel 0 empathy for, and to me... keep reading on reddit ➡
Every single season he screws her over at least twice, and even in the 7th season he remains awful and manipulative. I've heard the excuse that their love is strong enough to withstand that, but he is refusing to change and even when Emma turns him into a hero and his heart gets a blank slate, he refuses to changes and he screws Belle over. Now give me a reason to tolerate this ship.
My boyfriend is sitting here eating a banana custard and caramel McFlurry, which I know is delicious and here I am contemplating if I can fit a fibre one bar in to my calories today because I had a low cal donut and some popcorn as my snacks already. Sad times
Hi, I need to hook up a LAN connection between two buildings but I'm limited to running the connection alongside 240v power cables. As such I'm assuming EMI and other risks are too high.
The cable has to make 7 right angle turns in its path too.
I know I need a pair of media converters rated for duplex single mode, or multi mode but that's as far as my understanding goes.
I would be very grateful if someone could explain it for me. Thank you in advance.
Edit: Thank you everyone for your input, I've a lot of costing to do.
The below link is a phd dissertstion on "galvanic corrosion of aluminium/carbon composite systems" if you want to go into a bit more scientific detail than just a simple reddit post.
Now for my story/explanation:
I bought a second hand bike last week, my first road bike! Aluminium frame, carbon fibre (wrapped) seatpost, and the seller made a point of stating the seat post wouldnt move. Me being me, i thought its fine, i tinker with everything, i'll get it to move and the bike will be perfect for me. 4. Bloody. Hours. It took to get that seatpost out!
Carbon fibre is graphite. Graphite is not a metal, but it is conductive like one. Aluminium is a metal. When two differing, conductive, metals sit in close proximity to each other a process known as... keep reading on reddit ➡
One of my campground clients is going to lay conduit so we can turn our last couple of mesh repeaters into gateways.
It’s too far for ethernet, and we want to future proof a little, so we’re going to run fibre.
I do have a couple of suppliers who do pre-terminated fibre cables, but it would be a lot easier if I could run plain fibre, and terminate it on site.
I see there are a few DIY products that don’t need the traditional splicing hardware, but I have no experience with this, so don’t know what products are good, and which aren’t. (Brands of connectors/fibre type.)
Any suggestions? Should I just get a pre-terminated cable? I’m a little worried about how accurate our calculations of length are going to be; another reason to do my own.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I’m located in BC Canada, so that has an impact on my supply options, too.
Firstly, the character in the show and what he becomes when he ‘loses his humanity’ does not attract empathy from the viewer. He comes across as a dick - an emotionless creep, smug, know-it all bastard. Who wants that wanker on the throne? If Bran’s arc leaves anything with us, it’s how a a likeable young lad becomes a twat.
So the first thing I would argue needs to happen is you need to give the character some humanity back. No one cares about a walking cupboard - or a cupboard on wheels in this case. We want to see some glimmer of the young man he was.
His treatment of Meera wasn’t heartbreaking - it just came across as really insulting. No one who watched it was sitting there going, ‘Oh, it’s so sad that Bran is gone.’ Instead you were thinking You selfish little prick!’ It was all written so badly and clumsily so they could get Meera out of the story as quickly as possible and it was just a giant slap in the face to that character.
On top of this, Bran has to DO SOMETHING. Hi... keep reading on reddit ➡
My Bluray player can separate the 2, I noticed it had an optical out for the sound and an HDMI output (obviously), so being a sound kind of guy who has recorded bands nobody ever heard of in small studios, I rather use it, not sure if my bordering on non-supported 2 AMD Radeon HD7870 in CrossFire and my pci-e 1x sound card with all sorts of entries and exits that is on the front of the tower like a my amazing Pioneer optical media drive (it does every sort of discs out there, even quadruple density disks, although they are stupidly expensive and not much more than a TX (100gb) BD-R) can figure out I want the sound off from the video card and take it only from that audiophile/musician niche soundcard?
I mean the internet, not the other kind.
Anyway, I placed an order a month ago. Chorus finally came by to install it, and their suggestion was to run the exposed line along my fence rather than to use the existing underground conduit for services. Apparently they can’t or won’t access the other end of it to run the cable, never mind the fact that they were the ones that dug up the footpath when they installed fibre in our suburb. Pretty disappointing that they spent the money to get it so close to my house but didn’t consider working with any of the home owners at the time to sort out these solutions that would have been easy. Now I suspect a great many potential subscribers won’t bother with it given how unsightly it would be to run to the house.
What have others experienced? Can you push harder to get chorus to do a better job than the lazy ass clipping the cable to the fence routine?
I'll try to make short and no probs if no one knows but thought I might ask here.

Any help from experts would be so appreciated :)
Currently a shaw customer and considering switching to telus for gigabit fibre. Hoping some smart folks could help me out with a few clarification questions;
The internet hardware is different than Shaw. Shaw uses an all-in-one modem + router, where as Telus uses a separate modem + optik router, where I could use the modem to connect directly to my ubiquiti networking equipment and bypass the router altogether?
Can the Optik TV/Router box be connected in a different room? I have my modem in my office, but I have the TV in a completely different room and my house is not wired for Ethernet.
Will the Optik TV still work when the Telus router is in Bridge mode? I understand I won't be able to use the wireless 4k boxes, that's fine I don't really care about that.
Hope that makes sense. I'm just trying to wrap my head around it all before hand because I know I'm going to use my own networking equipment, and it sounds a bit different vs. Shaw. Thanks
I’ve just invested in the dream machine as I feel I needed to better secure my network.
I assumed that I would whack this into my BT home hub and all things will just work. But I’ve read different things online. Some mention the home hub 6 can’t be used as a modem, but another post I read mentioned that the Huawei device might just work.
I’m lost, the device is coming next week and I want to start fixing it up ASAP. What am I missing and what should I buy?

Don't be like me. About a month ago, I decided to start increasing my calories to find maintenance. I ultimately want to build a bit of muscle, and reddit loves low-carb, high-protein and fat diets, so I figured I'd increase my proteins and fats. I started eating more cheese, yogurt, protein bars, and meat, and it was delicious - until I stopped pooping.
I'd never really thought about fibre before, because I'd never had any stomach troubles, even when I ate garbage. But it turns out, 2 apples a day (which was what I'd been eating) is only 10 grams, and women need around 25 grams to maintain ~healthy bowel movements~. So each day, I got a little more bloated, and each day I figured "it'll be fine tomorrow".
It was not fine tomorrow. After a week of pain, I went to my doctor, who immediately sent me to the ER (thank god for free healthcare). I stayed there for two days. Three enemas, 2 litres of pepto bismol, countless stool softeners, 2 x-rays and one rectal examination later, I was... keep reading on reddit ➡
Telus fibre isn't available in my area and I just got an email from Shaw with their fibre internet.
Does anyone have this from Shaw yet? If so, any opinions on it?
I'm currently on an old Shaw 75 internet plant that is around $80/month and the fibre plans appear to be $110/month for a 2 year contract for 750 mbps.
What providers do you guys recommend for fibre broadband in NZ? Most seem to offer the 100/20 and 900/400 (or similar) and for general gaming, streaming etc is the difference worth paying more for?
EDIT: Leaning towards Stuff Fibre - does anyone has a referral code?
Also anyone use their Asus router (either the supplied RT-AC68U or upgraded paid RT-AC86U)?
I know VM normally uses copper connections to the house, but where I live we have a fibre cable that is used to feed us TV and Sky as well as VM. This network is part of the development I live in and is managed by SCCI Alphatrack. I found this document about how it works https://www.southeastconsortium.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Virgin-VM-over-IRS-Solution-2019.pdf. Does anyone have experience with this kind of connection? I’m worried that the latency will be worse because of the extra hop. I’m able to get the 500mb package and am considering moving.
Any advice appreciated!
I am in need of some help, I applied for a FTTP Fibre engineer role and would be working overhead and underground, all sounds good so far
when the recruitment company called me back, they said it is a fibre splicing role and all training will be given etc but it is a self employed role and is paid per job complete and not PAYE
Is this normal practice? has anyone done Fibre splicing as self employed on a per job basis?
Thank me later.
What’s everyone’s take on it? I like that it’s really quite different looking than the standard carbon layout, but also one thing I don’t like is how from piece to piece the layout can differ a lot so it’s hard to get matching pieces. Also the price I feel shouldn’t be inflated like it is given you can buy a forged carbon roll now, so the process shouldn’t be any different from the standard.
I’ve recently stumbled across this deal and I am curious to how this would hold up in comparison to my telus setup with fibre. I only have 150 up and down using fibre and it’s generally never consistent enough anyways. Should I expect a huge improvement considering the internet is supposed to have 6.6x the internet speed or will this be an utter disappointment? The gigabyte internet with tv package is cheaper than my fibre with cable and only 150mbps so i’m wondering if this will do. I do a lot of gaming and there’s usually 3 people running netflix or gaming around the same hours. Hopefully someone who has made this switch can let me know if it was worth it.
Don't have to walk 5 minutes anywhere.
Sorry if this is a repost, but I am wondering why more Australians are not upset about this:
I've just bought a house on a street that does have fibre, but the current owners aren't sure if it runs from the street (they inherited the house).
We can see a telecom cable running from the poles but there is currently no endpoint installed (the cable disappears into the wall and that's the end of it), but we're not sure if it's fibre or copper.
So who can I call who can tell me for sure, and if I need to get fibre installed from the street, who will do it?
Sorry if this sounds basic but I'm not from here.
Hi, I have started taking psyllium husk (not ground/powdered, actual husks, 5g in 100ml of water followed by however much water I need to wash it down) in order to avoid straining and getting tiny tears that bleed. I drink about 3 litres of water a day and if myfitnesspal is correct, I get about 25 to 30g of fibre a day that way (psyllium husk included).
However, my stools have become super loose... They come out easily enough now, but it's like they're fluffy? Not densely packed, not diarrhea either. Just lacking structural integrity. Also not getting the fabled clean "ghost wipe", instead I'm left picking out pieces of psyllium husk from my butthole with every wipe. When I use a douche after, I just keep flushing out more and more stray bits of fibre. It's like all the husks go through me and then cling to the walls of my rectum instead of congealing nicely.
Prior to this I'd also never get a clean wipe, but it was more because my poop was so sticky and would always break off befo... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I had about 8 boxes of Fibre One bars in our pantry (cinnamon and salted caramel ones) and my 6ft husband (who used to be obese last year but is in a healthy weight range now) had the drunken munchies and ate like TWENTY of them in a night 😱😱😱 like HOW?? I wasn’t even mad and he replaced them and then told me he farted all the way up and down the mountain walk he does regularly 😂😂
I'm from an Asian background where the majority of the meals contains little or no legumes (which people suggested to me for more fiber). I'm also find it a bit of a hassle to prepare legumes afterwards. Would it be "healthy" for me to miss the vitamins from legumes and replace it with fiber powder/pills such as **Psylium Husk/**MetaMucil, etc?
Breakfast: 2 fruits, oatmeal, 2 eggs, 450ml milk
Dinner: 50g of green leaves, protein, rice, greek yogurt.
Eating at 1450 cal a day. With 10-15g a day, but sometimes I get constipated/unhappy stools
Also do you have any service provider recommendations?
I recently moved into a SATO home which apparently includes free broadband from Telia.
Unfortunately the DNA router I brought doesn't seem to be working. I called Telia and they told me I had to register the connection in my name (which I then did), and that would be sufficient to turn the connection on, but a day later still no joy.
Does anybody have a recommendation for a router that will work with VDSL2/fibre/whatever I have via the coaxial cable?
Bonus-points for being in-stock at Clas Ohlson, Verkkokaupa, or somewhere else I can easily reach by the weekend. Lack of internet (except on my mobile) is hard!
I tried to find somebody for myself, but searching verkkokauppa for "dsl2 + wifi" shows me a whole bunch of routers which seem to expect an RJ45 connection for the WAN-side, rather than a Coax cable.
