@pelagikat @Andrea @ben_hr You’ve probably seen this by now but ABC FactCheck says it’s totally bogus and nobody has stats on it: http://theconversation.com/factcheck-did-more-people-buy-their-seventh-home-than-bought-their-first-home-last-year-108492
Original source was the Huffington Post by way of a Queensland state minister 🙄

I'm never going to drink again...until next time 😆
Was well worth it though, super day/night with great people. Lots of laughs
Also helps with karaoke to have big numbers of friends and colleagues in the crowd
With little debate and the support of the main opposition party, Australia has passed a law that will subvert Internet security and demolish user trust. What happens now? https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/12/new-fight-online-privacy-and-security-australia-falls-what-happens-next
All the outrage at #aabill seems to be happening over at birdsite, but it’s just occurred to me that the business that bought out my employer makes their bread and butter building secure payment systems, in Australia, that they’re trying to sell internationally. How they’re going to maintain customer confidence with crippled crypto beggars belief.
The government is threatening to legislate our encryption away again, and I'm standing by what I wrote last time.

The view from my lunch venue yesterday ☺
After lunch was a happy hour at work, drinks at the pub and karaoke
Today, i was a little worse for wear TGIS
Knickers - The Cow (steer) - a question Show more
Ok, he's big and a bit different but everyone loves him which is great ☺
My question - Are cows the only animal where the female version is what the whole breed is generically named?
e.g. dogs are dogs, cats are cats, fish are fish etc
There are probably others but it hurts my brain to think this early in the morning

That is all 😕
Victorian Election - vote below the line Show more
The preference whisperer has been at work again doing his best to distort democracy. Don't let him do it, vote below the line and stop your vote going awful unexpected places.
You only have to number a minimum of 5 boxes so easy peasy
My recommendation, vote Green and enjoy a sausage (or suitable vegetarian alternative) ☺
password management Show more
Seems to be lots of techy types here so figured I'd pick your brains.
I've been pretty slack about passwords, there are just too many, but seeing as I've had one I use quoted in spam I got it's probably time I did something
So my questions are
Are password managers worthwhile? And is there a free one that does enough to get by?
The world would be a very boring place if everyone followed the same path in life
