    In a warzone, has faster download speeds than 90% of Australia.

  • Particularly Tasmania. (ZDNet)

    The entire state lost internet access around 1:30 PM today.

    Major internet problems in Queensland and New South Wales today as well, due to large parts of those states being underwater. We're currently in the latter half of "Of droughts and flooding rains".

    Come to think of it, I should check what towns are in trouble right now and scratch them off my list. Armidale is a reported emergency area but so is the part of Sydney where I live right now, and while everything outside is thoroughly soggy, it's not coming inside. Lismore and Ballina are less fortunate. A couple of my co-workers in Queensland are cut off but otherwise safe.

    The State Emergency Service put out a flood watch for the whole Sydney region, with the worst predicted for areas around the Upper Nepean River.
    That's unusual. The Nepean, yes, but the entire Sydney region? I'll be fine; I'm up on a hill in Sydney's north, but much of the western parts of Sydney are low-lying and flat.

    Update Two: I've been so busy with work that I missed the fact that Sydney flooded last week. (ABC - the Aussie one)
