Long time no post

It has been way to long since my last post and I am unsure how long it might be for the next one.  Having shifted back to Bundaberg, we find out that the house that we are renting has been set for when the NBN is completed in our estate.  As a result we have incompatible infrastructure with the ‘normal’ set up and therefore cannot get a phone line or access to ADSL.

We have been told that it should only be a ‘couple’ of months before NBN connection is complete but until then we have to go on wireless.  Telstra in their infinite wisdom won’t give out anything less than 24 month contracts and when told that we only want it for a few months they said that we could just pay for the remainder of the contract for internet that we won’t be using.

As a result we have gone through Dodo who at least offer 6 month contracts but as they piggyback of the Optus network, the signal strength here is crap and as a result I average 5 KB/second which is just painful.  So this is a test post to see how long it takes to upload and I shudder to think how long it might take to upload a post with photos in it (even if reduced in size).

Any way whinge over so a quick update of what I have been doing over the last couple of months.

1. Dystopian wars – Kingdom of Britannia fleet (KOB)

2. Learning how to air brush using my KOB fleet as my test subjects

3. Firestorm Armada – Aquan fleet waiting to get my air brushing skills up as I really would like to have a similar paint scheme in the rule book.

4. Making up more scenery for Dystopian Wars.

Pictures will follow when I can go around to a friend’s place and use my tablet for my next post.


Hope all are well.


  1. Good to see you back. I guess we'll all just have to wait a few months before you're back at full capacity.

  2. Thanks Sean, hopefully as soon as possible, this speed is just 'killing' me.

  3. Frank, things are slowly getting better, still no internet but I am now using the net at the FLGS that I volunteer at. I was hoping to show photos of my Britannia fleet but forgot them but I will be adding a new post after I finish this reply.
