Anyone got a SNES controller or two lying around they'd let go for cheap?

I should explain, I only want to own one computer. So it really needs to be a laptop so if I need to take it somewhere I can, bit I don't need to often. Does it matter that the processor is old?

This is a tough call. Could it make sense to buy a Macbook Pro non-retina, max out the ram and swap out the CD drive with an SSD HDD? Are the non-retina macbooks cheaper to get fixed if something breaks?

Hackintosh?

That's a pretty good idea, how feasible are they to make/run? Do you have to sort it yourself or do people sell laptops already set up for it? I'm not super technical but if it's straightforward could probably do it.

so if your interface hasn't got external power you're kind of chunked if all you have is Thunderbolt.

All good, it has an external power source. Thanks for mentioning that, didn't know.

Hmm, I have a similar question to the original poster's. So, have an old macbook white, the screen has died and I want a new laptop to replace it. The problem is, I have a firewire audio interface, plus I want something upgradeable. I'd get one of the new macbook pros/macbook airs, but I'm not forking out a tonne of cash for 8gig ram and 256gig when that should be bloody standard nowadays. I hate that Apple have gone the way of soldering everything to the motherboard. I'm also not sure if my audio interface will work with a firewire --> thunderbolt adapter.

So, it seems I have a few options, none of which are particularly appealing. I could go the Macbook pro classic which is still for sale but hasn't been updated to the latest processors, it's heavy and outdated but upgradeable and has a firewire port - it also costs basically the same as one of the newer ones. Or I could go PC laptop, but I like the Apple OS and I run logic, plus it seems much more iffy about what audio interfaces will work.

Any thoughts?

Oh, and you submit it after the financial year you are applying for is over and you have submitted your tax return for that year.

95% sure you can claim it every year as long as you work in a ''related'' job for a minimum of one week during that financial year. You don't even have to be a teacher anymore, as long as you work in education. I imagine it's a pro rata thing so the more you work in the field the more you get off your HECS/HELP.

Pass this along to any education, science, nursing or math students/former students all! I think you need to have graduated after 2009 though.

Recently graduated teachers listen up! The ATO told me there's a HECS debt refund for students of maths, science, education and nursing. Like 1500 a year! It can be backpaid for two years too.

Where's my fucken NBN

Comment I Made about 2 months ago

I don't get this..

http://howfastisthenbn.com.au/

says that FTTP should get you speeds of 1000Mbps, but the houses that have been connected by fibre aren't getting anywhere near that. is that because NBN Co is throttling the speed and only selling wholesale speeds that are up to 100Mbps?
