Procuring Broadband connection - Syd version

After moving out to an independent house one of the rudimentary requirement was to get Braodband connection. There were many options available.
- Naked BB
- ADSL2+ bundled
- cable internet
various others
This also included different providers like optus, telstra, TPG and others. There were quite a lot of other criteria(s) like should we go for a connection with landline, selecting a plan based on how much GB will be consumed in a month, is there a reasonable NBN(fibre optics) connection available, among all others

Drupal jujubi's

This should have been the first topic in this place which made use of drupal as the CMS. Now it is here because lately I have migrated from one web hosting to another[with screenshot of intodns ]; which almost made me do everything other than keeping the blog content same, reason was to make use of only 32MB space for php memory limit(asked for 64MB php memory limit from the previous hoster). Hopefully I am reproducing everything as experienced or else drupal will display necessary hints on what to do next.

microSDHC card behaving unusual**

Happen to partition the mmc into 5 partitions 3p +2extended but later on with some tweaking in the fstab wasn't able to mount the swap partition, not only that the fdisk /dev/mmcblk0 was not showing any partition with p switch (the mmc was detected properly by the kernel used dmesg|grep mmc and also the /dev was populated by created partitions ) . so commented the mmcblk partition in fstab and restarted the device which enabled to see the partition in fdisk - no idea why it behaved that way. So again formatted mmc card into 4 primary partition. lets see what happens now.
