    Dry for the past couple of weeks, cool nights and warm days. Just about everything is entering dormancy, except Murraya hedges which seem to be thriving.

    Re: Subcontracting-whats fair

    I like your thinking, but at this end of the business spectrum, most don't have the money to stage a "you stole my customer base" case in the Supreme Court Commercial List.

    "Cowra Gold" pebbles and cast concrete steppers seems to be the go these days. It looks right tasty and is low maintenance... and for those of an architectural and geological mind, it has other...

    Re: A New Business Venture

    Why they didn't choose a scalable hosting solution the first time around confounds me. It's an "off the rack" selection at so many hosting providers who can host much more than a couple of million...

    Hey Redeye

    Try "UV Wraps" from that usual large eastern states hardware supplier. About $14 a pair. You too can look like The Terminator. :D If you're unlucky, you will look like the Sherminator....

    Re: Iphone Eftpos

    Bingo. It works. The vast majority (>95%?) EFT on the night before the job, as regulars. First jobs and non-regulars do it a day or few earlier (i.e. no money, no honey, etc). About 50% send their...

    Re: neighbour's tree falls down

    If it's a big fall, it's time to call one's insurer. They have lawyers who are well skilled at arguing among themselves.

    Grumpy? Awesome weather on the weekend and the week ahead is forecast as high probability of 10-20mm almost every day.

    What is fair is between you and that guy. If he agrees to, and signs on paper an agreement to a rate, then it's a deal between men and is done in honour, and within reasonable circumstances. Nothing...
