I could say the same about trucks, buses, cars etc but here we are on a Transportation forum
I am confused as to what you stand for.
Given OP's complaint & post was about a technical problem, not about pollution or energy impact / wastage, I don't really see what you're trying to get at. As someone whose really into technological things, the Internet can have it's +'s on the environment but this isn't really the thread to be talking about it so I won't go into further detail.

We sadly had to get a new modem now.

Could you pm me a link to where you got your statement from?

Cheers, MO8562
The batteries in electronic devices contain nickel metal hydride which is toxic to plants, also when we dispose of plastic into landfill it doesn't break down that easily, I got a friend that owns a mine containing nickel, rhodium, magnesium, gold and copper he's also introducing new technology so mining doesn't have to have harmful impacts on the environment, I'm not an activist but I do believe in keeping ones things tidy and cleaning up ones mess.

A Melbourne woman threatens to sue Victoria Police for armed kidnapping after she is found not wearing a mask.

Lets hope this virus doesn't spread rapidly now that stage 4 is in place, the next stage is stage 5 restrictions, who knows what the restrictions could be?

100 Max at weddings and funerals, a maximum of 50 in private homes. Nothing major yet, more precautionary than restrictive.

The local train lines have been out of service since early this morning due to flooding but TransportNSW has still not made an alert for it on their website. I had to call 131500 only to be told a train would still be leaving the station at it's scheduled time but I said how can a train be leaving if it's canceled and being replaced by buses?

I hate to think of it this way but if it was a Sydney issue there would've been a lot more notice & warnings given. I only found out the services were canceled because a THIRD PARTY APPLICATION told me, the official Transport NSW application was still giving me "All trains are on time & no problems".

Good Grief get your act together 131500.

Clive Palmer. When being told 'no' means you go to the Federal Courts, you know someone is a spoiled little brat. If he wins the case against WA, good luck to the rest of Australia. Victorian's are gonna go mental and get out, thus spreading Covid. And if anyone dies from Covid (and it was proven to be from this decision), he'll have blood on his hands. Get ready to lose the little money you have left, you w**ker.

Sometimes, when you get told 'no', leave it at that.

I heard Clive Palmer is in court for moving around big amounts of money. Is he in court for other things as well ?

Yes, he's in courts for the money thing, and now he is in Federal Court to remove the border closure for WA, as (he states) it goes against the constitution.

He is just as mad as Trump, at least he has more than enough money for the court costs.

Just imagine him with Judge Judy.......

Trumps not mad, alot of the media outlets in America make him look bad because they are in cahoots with the demoCRAPS, I have mentioned it before on this post I have a friend that owns a mine, it's in America, with out the stuff Trump has done my mate would have problems running his mine.

The leftist mainstream media are on a hunt to discredit Trump where they can. Just look at the behaviour of so called reporters -activists for far left wing causes in reality. They never cover the great things he's done like personally meet victims of illegal immigrant murderers to hear their grievances and how the Demon-rats keep blocking attempts to fix loopholes preventing efficient deportation of illegals causing misery to Americans.
He stands up to China and has remedied the unfair imbalance of cash flow between the countries to get it going America's way.
I want the left and it's Marxist agenda to be crushed out of existence.

Calling the Police assistance line (non-emergency) and having to listen to a good 3+ minutes of recorded spill before it even puts me on hold to get connected to an operator. Why can't they have an IVR system and you press 1 or 2 and it connects you to an operator. I want to report something not listen to a bunch of pre recorded messages.

I called them in the past once before for a different incident and wasn't getting anywhere so had to call 000 which worked out better as it turned to get really dangerous. Sad to see much hasn't changed.

Holden Hill police station is the worst for the public to call as well.
This is the kind of S&#T reporters do to Trump;
