NBN. At Last!
And about the last. The fibre optic network was commenced about 3 years ago, and I applied for a connection shortly after.
Despite living in the centre of Victoria’s second biggest city, my house was not connected to the National Broadband Network until today.
Until then I have coped with download speeds as low as 1mb/sec, and uploads as slow as 60kb/sec. Do you wonder why I upload so few videos?
Today, the NBN was finally connected. The download speed is a blistering 50mb/sec, and uploads 25mb/sec. Wow!
Just to celebrate, I am posting some pictures. Not much to report from the workshop, but I am accumulating some items in readiness for rifling the model cannon bore.
This is the first time I have had parts laser cut, and I am impressed by the accuracy and smoothness of the cut and the narrow kerf (0.2mm). Oh, and the cost. It was surprisingly inexpensive. ($AUD26).
We’re still waiting for the NBN, despite being less than 10km from Melbourne CBD 😦 I hope you enjoy the new speeds!
I’d never thought of laser cutting old HSS blades… There’s a stash of burnt-up/snapped slitting saws that I’ve just found a use for !
