We are scheduled to get NBN on today. When I get home from work we will either have lightning fast internet (ie, 5x current speed), or none! Feb 18, 2019 at 5:43 AM

        NBN = National Broadband Network
        Awesome initiative by previous political party to have fibre internet to every house in Australia, watered down to a pathetic fibre-to-the-node but the same old copper line the rest of the way, when the opposition got elected, and their powers that be don't have a clue.

        I am told it's all working, and we were without internet for less than an hour. It all seemed very straightforward and painless.

        If this were a plugin I was writing, I'd be saying there must be a logic error somewhere!

      When you spend 2 days trying to figure out why no sprites are showing, and finally realise you didn't call the aliased setupPageSettings :(

        @Sharm, that's what my husband said - couldn't believe I didn't see it straight away. Yeah, right ...

        @Sharm you should know all about it, because we just had a discussion recently about overwritten and aliased methods. I meant to alias a method (do the original stuff then some extra stuff), but overwrote it instead (just do the extra stuff, but not the original stuff). So all the default stuff about setting up the sprite didn't happen.

        Oh yes, that conversation where you said that it would all go over my head and I agreed that I only understood half! (This one makes sense, it's like showing one layer of an image when you meant to show all of them.)

        They are absolutely adorable! Walking around like they own the place, buddies with our cats already. It's just the dog they have to learn how to handle ... but Simon is finding that wagging tail VERY hard to resist!

        And just to clarify @Sharm as I just reread my status and realise it could be taken the wrong way. We are not doing the adopting. We are doing the fostering. 5 adoptees plus 3 of our own? I'm not brave enough for that!

        "just" work stuff. Nightmare because project owner kept changing her mind about things. For two lines to be shown on a screen, she asked for changes FIVE times in a single week! Even on the last day she was asking us to change stuff. The whole project was like that :(
