The best post for a while, david.
No wonder the Chinese have worked out why we're going so cheap.
If it wasn't so funny...

Well.....the census was a roaring success.
Logged in mid yesterday afternoon and completed it with absolutely no trouble. I wonder if those having trouble getting to the site was because their internet provider was log jammed.

Hempy 10th Aug 2016 09:22

The ABS are blaming cyber DOS attacks about 7:30pm that forced them to shut down the server. Their social media sites were still telling people to log on at 9:30pm

You had one job.. :rolleyes:

I'm bemused by all the media controversy surrounding the census and security of data. In particular I refer to public figure Nick Xenophon, who has the spotlight on him continuously. Is he simply a media tart?

For those who have previously applied for an ASIC, the only questions not asked there are income, religion and who else lives at your address.

The Census did NOT:

Require certified copies of your Driver's Licence
Require 100 points ID
Question about pending or prior criminal convictions
Check your status with ASIO, Crimtrac or Department of Immigration
Ask you for a recent mugshot.

They really don't need to involve us - between ATO, SAPOL and other State, Commonwealth and Local authorities, they could do (most of) it without us.

Logged on and started to complete the census yesterday but fell at the first hurdle.

It wouldn't accept '0' as the number of people resident in the house yesterday.

Wife and I are overseas, aren't we. :E

ABS's solution is to ask us to call their support team on a local Australian number. No international caller number offered.

Sorry ABS. I can't afford the call charges at the moment.

Errr .... yes, I think that would be a reasonable appraisal.

TWT 10th Aug 2016 10:58

CoodaShooda,you don't have to bother with it :)


Overseas on Census night
If you are not in Australia on Census night, you are not required to complete the Census. If you're overseas on Census night, we use the information collected on overseas departure cards from Australia's ports and airports to add Australian residents back in - you will still be counted.
mmm
mmmm

FullOppositeRudder 10th Aug 2016 11:14

The census debacle should put any proposals/demands to conduct federal elections online well into the background for a while .........

CoodaShooda 11th Aug 2016 06:34

But the Overseas Departure Card does not show my Religion (Jedi Knight) or Aboriginal Heritage (most important for attracting greater federal funding for the NT). :(:E

Stanwell 11th Aug 2016 07:55

It's a bit of a worry, isn't it?
A fervent agnostic of uncertain heritage.
I can't find the box to tick.
While I do try to fulfil my social obligations, I'm going to have to pass on this one..
These clowns are still drawing their pay, though, I'll bet.

Flying Binghi 11th Aug 2016 09:10

turnBull comments on the census and then it fails...
Seems anything that corrupt turnBull clown gets involved in turns to shiyte..:hmm:

18C
 
"...Coalition frontbenchers have been banned from supporting firebrand senator Cory Bernardiís proposal to amend the Racial Discrimination Act, dooming the free-speech crusade to failure..."

Tony Abbott has said he regrets not pursuing this issue when he were PM... so where is he now ?

Don't worry Binghi, Pauline will ride in on her big white stallion and save your day. Surely.

TWT 18th Aug 2016 13:42

Two Australians sought over Bali police death

This will really help Indo-Australian relations.Not that they could be much worse.

Anyway,the Bali authorities are considering making Bali a dry zone soon anyway,so that'll mean the yobbos will have to find somewhere else to trash.

Nah mate, just wondering where your political allegiances lie. I'm tipping you didn't vote Labor or Greens in the last election, and I'm pretty sure you didn't vote for the Liberal led 'turnBull'. So who's left for you other than One Nation? (btw, the same One Nation that the Howard/Abbott lot tried ruin with slush funds, court orders etc before stealing their policies).

Maybe Bolt should run for parliament. He could be Australias Donald Trump!

"Australia's Donald Trump..." Dick Smith for Prime Minister!..:cool:

As for One Nation. Whilst there is much positive about O.N., I don't like their anti Chinese immigration ideas. I grew up in Darwin when its rich Chinese history were still obvious. Many of the kids I knew at school had Chinese blood. They contributed to the building of Darwin and Oz.

I recall many years ago that it were the new chum Italians and Greeks that were the 24/7 workers slaving away out there paying their taxs and making a positive contribution to Oz. Then it were the turn of the Vietnamese and they were out there contributing to Oz. Now, on the week-end I drive around the big city industrial area and I note it is the new chum Chinese small business man still working 24/7 when all others have taken the week-end off. So I think we need that positive contribution of the new Chinese and other non-islamic Asian immigrants..:cool:

Of interest, here's a vid of the buildings bombed in Darwin 42 and the names of the owners. Many Chinese names: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=99FkXYpd2F8

Would that be Darwin High or Nightcliff High, flying binghi?
Must agree about the Chinese in Darwin as well as the Greeks and Italians.

Hempy appears to have no politicall affiliation and wanders around shit stirring on various threads.

Pauline Hanson rocks👍

Stanwell 19th Aug 2016 03:02

Well Owen,
The Chinese Government now effectively owns the port of Darwin - but only for 99 years, so that's OK.

As for Pauline, despite her intellectual handicaps, she does have that knack of asking uncomfortable questions.
More power to your elbow, sweetie.

owen meaney 19th Aug 2016 03:14

That is a worry Stanwell, hopefully they don't tow it off to China at some time. Keep us posted if it disappears ��
Pauline Rocks��
