Australia is so vast that there are variable climates in many regions. Live down southern states and average temp is in the teens or low 20's. Up where i live, the far north average temp is 28-30 celsius. I love it. Oldest rainforest in the world, great barrier reef right on my door step. I can even swim off the beach and snorkle a reef. Been a bit wild of late, this sunday just gone we copped 600+ mm of rain in 24 hours. I've seen monsoonal weather, experienced cyclone Yasi. This rain was something else. Shit thing is we're looking at ex tropical cyclone 'L' that struck vanuatu last week is being drawn to my region by the two massive high pressure zones currently residing over the majority of central and southern Australia. ( i say cyclone L Because i cannot remember it's name)

ground is so soaked at the moment that this next if even only 400mm could be catastrophic for the region.

A funny story. A bunch of years ago an actress friend of mine was in Sydney doing a show. This was back when everybody was using AOL and dial-up and it was a big novelty to email back and forth across the globe. She was staying with this gal who was said to be the most famous stripper in Sydney and this woman started emailing me and sending photos of herself and she was hot. She invited me to come stay with her as long as I wanted. I thought what the hell. Why not go and have an adventure? After a week of going over my finances I was going to buy a ticket the next day, when a friend of mine heard of my plans he informed me that yes this chick was really hot and desirable, except... she'd been caught in the middle of a bar fight a year before and got hit in the face with chair and now sported a complete set of false teeth.
Dude you should have gone for it,imagine the blow job you would have got when she took her teeth out...

Anybody have problems using Chromecast for the race last week? Mine was terrible. The audio kept dropping out. Tried contacting Moto Gp but got no real fix from their tech people.

Yep, ran into that too. They were using some kind of proprietary Chrome Cast that was built in to the site and it would not allow you to use the Chrome Cast that is in the browser. Looks like they removed it because it was causing problems. I was watching practice from Argentina today using the old video player and casting from the browser and it worked just fine.

The MotoGP HTML5 Beta Players doesn't work on my Sony TV's web browser. Sony no longer support Flash players. I've had to resort back to running my Media PC that uses Chrome Browser with Flash player.

Argentina race was posted, but I wasn't able to play it for the first hour after it was up.

My home has 1Gbps (about 890Mbps actual download and 50-60Mbps upload speeds) ISP but MotoGP servers still can't provide smooth stutter free 1080p output.

Considering the cost of the Video Pass, and the numerous problems with their servers streaming the content ... makes me wonder what sort of servers they're using ... clearly not investing appropriate funds into fast reliable servers relative to the price they're asking for the Video Pass.

I inquired about performance issues via eMail and basically got a response that suggested "too bad and we don't accept refunds". It's some company that Dorna/FIM contract with and they are for the most inept ... I don't know why Dorna/FIM keep using the same company?? Maybe they're affiliated with Honda ... haha.

Cheers, Rob.

If you want a refund and want to quit their service - it's easy as pie. Call your card Visa or Mastercard and tell them service is defective and the company shows no sign of fixing the problem.

BTW - have you tried casting from your smartphone?

Granted, much is Desert.
Here in the UK with 242,495 kmē we have an official population of around 67 million, then you can add in about 10 million illegals, our roads are full of potholes (old coal mine holes ) Far to many bitch about traffic jams and the weather, The USA has firms that want to plunder what we have left of production along with the Chinese and Russians. Me I'm glad I'm towards the end of life, I'd loathe being 20 again.
