Talking Hello Boys and Girls

Hi Guys,

I'm Tim from Brisbane. I'm a network engineer, who mostly works in the developing and dangerous parts of the world.

The missus and I usually spend about 3/2 of the year OS doing various missions for the UN, EU, IMF, World Development Bank... whoever will pay the bill.

Just bought a BE Book (Hanlin re-bage), which absolutely rules, and unlike the morons at Sony or Amazon... it is actually available in Australia.

I hope people from Sony and Amazon read this intro, and I hope they realise just how narrow minded an stupid they are being in BLOCKING Australian citizens from owning their products

E-book readers so rule, I've had mine for 3 months now and it paid for it's self on it's first mission (Rwanda), because I did not have to pay for 25kg of excess baggage for technical manuals, {you try putting up a J-band SAT station with out a set of manuals}!

Anyway, if you want to hear why the Hanlin is so good, drop me a line!

Like Ipswich? (Honestly, it's okay, I used to live there! )

I'm going to choose to see you and your missus as suave superspies (the good "James Bond" type) from now on. Sorry, it's too late, you can't change it, it's my imagination, and I only give people read-only access.

Okay, I will, but I'm going to need a bigger wrench...

...

...okay, I admit it, I have no idea what a "J-band SAT station" is...but I really like wrenches...and socket sets...and hammers, I love hammers. Can I use a hammer?

No, thanks. I bought an Iliad from those morons at Dymocks.

Welcome aboard the MobileRead Ride, Tim. Please, watch your head, do not try to de-ride while we are still in motion, keep your hands inside the car at all times, and hold on tight - the first dip's a doozy, and they get worse/better after that.

Cheers,
Marc

Hello and welcome. I guess you like adverture eh.

Anyway, how do you spend 3 halfs of the year doing something? Aren't there only 2 halfs to each year?

if you get up really early in the morning (or stay up really late at night) you can sometimes fit a third half in.

welcome to the forum, Tim. as you can see australia is well represented among our members (we go for quality more than quantity, a little Marc goes a long way. a big Marc goes all the way to eleventy ), so we hope you'll feel quite at home. congratulations on finding the right liseuse for your needs, the choice can be a bit overwhelming !

welcome timcotterill.

I don't think Amazon and Sony are being so much "stupid" as unable to figure out ways to get their products world wide. Enjoy your Halin, and

Stay safe.

Hi Tim and welcome to the Forum. Don't know why Sony is so pigheaded but it sure is exasperating.
