I don't care anymore...
It just means that I have an advantage when applying for jobs
If people want to be lazy, then let them. B-)

I care even less now.
To me, this is the same as all the car ads that visually show the top of the range model and the price that "starts from". You go to the stealer with $21,990 in your mind and drive off with a $20,000 debt. Or you drive off with a $12,990 priced car that runs, feels and resells like sh!t.
The chock is not to stop it rolling down the hill, it was put there by those pesky Moist Robots in a feeble attempt to stop the Machine.
Mind you, that robot's future is now in doubt due to the embarrassing photo of him mounting an inferrior 'dumb machine'. His mates will have no doubt already received it as they are all connected to the 'Net' and are currently rubbing it in. :)

"Come on, folks. Dig deeper. Stare into the void.
Into the VOID."
I looked up VOID and it the all knowing Interweb said...
8. an empty space; emptiness: He disappeared into the void.
9. something experienced as a loss or privation: His death left a great void in her life.
10. a gap or opening, as in a wall.
11. a vacancy; vacuum.
Does this mean that The Register is a vacuum, vacant or an opening?
If so, are we wasting time here and should I just stick to my slashdot overlords?
Are we able to ask more than one question?
If not, how will we know, as it's not the first one I asked?
Lastly, I think I have some Ubuntu on my shoe, it tastes a bit nutty. :S
Could this mean that 'terrorists' really are a minority in the world, that ~99% of the population (including Muslums) are normal people trying to get on with their lives?
Seems the authorities have created a huge scarey underground network that is turning out to be not as bad as they say.
Is it just me, or is it that almost every accident reported on the news ends with 'Authorities don't believe terrorism was a factor'. No sh!t, accidents happen all the time, and we never 'suspected terrorism' before.
*gets off soap box and sits back in corner*
Thanks El Reg for publishing this news, a bit of reality is nice to see.
MORE than $1 billion that would have been spent on introducing a controversial access card for Australians will now be returned to federal coffers, Human Services Minister Joe Ludwig said.
Labor will scrap the Howard government's plan for an access card, which triggered privacy concerns and was compared to identity cards.
It was intended to replace the Medicare card and up to 16 other benefit cards, streamlining access to a range of health and welfare services.
Senator Ludwig said the card would have cost more than expected, without saving as much as it was supposed to. He said the money would be better spent on other policies.
"I'll return almost $1.2billion to the budget for taxpayers," Senator Ludwig said.
"We are focused on the practical things that will make a real difference, like online services, the co-ordination between agencies, data matching and data sharing, that's what the Rudd Labor government will focus on," he said.
Australianisms won't work on an overseas site as
Take the following extract from the 'Aussie Citizenship Test' that was emailed around.
"Macca, Chooka and Wanger are driving to Surfers in their Torana. If they are travelling at 100 km/h while listening to Barnsey, Farnsey and Acca Dacca, how many slabs will each person on average consume between flashing a brown eye and having a slash?"
I suspect quite a few overseas ppl will be confused, where as an Aussie will smile and remember their youth...
Anyway, we get to Friday before they do, which is kinda cool...
After reading your comment, I agree with you. Might go see if I can make me a *cough* fake *cough* page.
While I personally don't encourage visits to these sites, I know a lot of people who do (and email me invites to their pages on the sites).
I've found that you can't view them unless you register your details first. They can shove that sh!t where the sun doesn't shine...
Got to go, there's some kids on my lawn!
And from what I'm hearing about them, I don't think I want to.
I can't figure out though how people can put info online, and then expect it to stay private. *shrugs*. When I do need to put in a name and details, good luck with the site provider linking it back to anything about me but an IP addy.
