Typical Australian Sayings

  • G’Day!”
    * “It’s better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.”
    * “She’ll be right.”
    * “And down from Kosciusko, where the pine clad ridges raise their torn and rugged battlements on high, where the air is clear as crystal, and the white stars fairly blaze at midnight in the cold and frosty sky.
    And where, around the overflow, the reed beds sweep and sway to the breezes, and the rolling plains are wide. The Man from Snowy River is a household word today, and the stockmen tell the story of his ride.”
    Tips to Surviving Australia:
    * Don’t ever put your hand down a hole for any reason whatsoever. We mean it.
    * The beer is stronger than you think, regardless of how strong you think it is.
    * Always carry a stick.
    * Air-conditioning.
    * Do not attempt to use Australian slang, unless you are a trained linguist and good in a fist fight.
    * Thick socks.
    * Take good maps. Stopping to ask directions only works when there are people nearby.
    * If you leave the urban areas, carry several litres of water with you at all times, or you will die.
    * Even in the most embellished stories told by Australians, there is always a core of truth that it is unwise to ignore.

Australia defends mandatory Internet filter

Australia Sunday defended its plan to block some Internet content, such as that featuring child sex abuse or advocating terrorism, after a media rights watchdog warned it may hurt free speech.

Australia Sunday defended its plan to block some Internet content, such as that featuring child sex abuse or advocating terrorism, after a media rights watchdog warned it may hurt free speech.

The Paris-based Reporters Without Borders (RSF) on Friday listed Australia, along with South Korea, Turkey and Russia, as countries “under surveillance” in its “Internet Enemies” report.

While Australia does not rank alongside Iran or North Korea in terms of censorship, its proposal to place a mandatory filter on the web to remove illegal and extreme material has raised concerns, RSF said.

Communications Minister Stephen Conroy wants Internet service providers (ISPs) to filter the web to bring the online world in line with censorship standards applied in Australia to material such as films, books and DVDs.

“The government does not support Refused Classification (RC) content being available on the Internet,” a spokeswoman for the minister told AFP.

“This content includes child sexual abuse imagery, bestiality, sexual violence, detailed instruction in crime, violence or drug use and/or material that advocates the doing of a terrorist act.”

Under Australia’s existing classification rules, this material is not available in news publications or libraries, and cannot be viewed at the cinema or on television and is not available on Australian-hosted websites.

“The government’s proposal will bring the treatment of overseas-hosted content into line by requiring ISPs to block overseas content that has been identified as being RC-rated,” she said.

“There are no plans to block any other material that is not RC,” she added.

But Geordie Guy, spokesman for the online rights group Electronic Frontiers Australia, said the filter was still a bad idea.

“In the construction of a censorship system like this, Australia will be building the framework for a broader censorship system if this government, or any future government, sees that that is what they wish to do,” he told AFP.

Malwarebytes anti-malware

malwarebytes I have used Malwarebytes for over a year now and it catches many Viruses, Spyware and Malware that my other programs don’t catch.
One good thing is they have a Free Version and a Paid Version.
The Free Version is very good, but only runs when you start the program yourself and you run a scan. There is no difference between the Free or Paid Version on which Viruses, Spyware and Malware will be found and removed. You will get the same protection with both.
No matter which version you get, either one is a must in your toolkit against Malware.

If you can afford it, I recommend that you get the paid version.  It’s a one time cost and with buying the paid version you will get these three benefits.
• Real-time Protection
• Scheduled Scanning
• Scheduled Updating
The best benefit of buying the Full Version is you can “Set It & Forget It”.
