If you would like to be involved or support the upkeep and further development of this site, it would be very welcome no matter how small.

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


Computer Down

Larry's computer has finally decided to pack up and call it a day. The hunt is on this weekend for a new desktop. Back at the keyboard early next week - Site Admin


What are They Plotting in Poland


I’M OFFENDED JULIA, WHY DIDN’T YOU ASK ME? I do really good portraits


Well as was said the other day "THE KILLING SEASON IS ALMOST HERE"Shorten is getting the jitters that the Liberals may be getting a backbone and may possibly change leaders?
"Mr Shorten said a “new civil war” had broken out inside the Liberal Party.

“Mr Turnbull’s leadership is weakened by no less than 25 members of his government criticising his plan for a clean energy target. Mr Turnbull has been weakened and Australian’s are the loser,” he said.

“He needs to stand up to Tony Abbott. He needs to say no more climate change scepticism.”

“For goodness sakes Malcolm Turnbull get your government into order because Australian’s deserve lower electricity prices, more jobs in renewable energy and of course a real fair dinkum policy on climate change.”

I've a 1tb SSD and a 2tb HDD and that's just a laptop. On a desktop LP should have a RAID setup, and preferably removable drives to auto-backup and store elsewhere (never trust "the cloud").

old vinegar just HATES seeing people get on doesn't she wheelie. Even if it takes TWO days for her to sneak back in and lay some hate shit down. It must be very busy, yet lonely in there old girl.

Have you mob ever heard of gay rugby, it seems to be an international event .

I've read that Linux is the way to go.

FFS Don't buy a Dell......................endless problems...............

The only flakes are you two goats

Talking about computers how can someone enter my email account and delete my files and addresses ?

Happy shopping Larry. I am loving my new laptop Microsoft. tablet with a attachable key pad.

rather the old computer than Larry ..thats for sure...look forward to the next insightful column Larry :)

Hope you backed up all these columns!

And cartoons! I have 100s on file!

Must be a Chinese cemetary your computer is buried within seeing it's on a hill.

That's sad. A computer going down permanently is like loosing a very good friend. May your new computer be as faithful and long serving.

Get out your paints while you are waiting, Larry.

Larry, that vision is a fitting tribute to a machine that served this site so well, compared to those at the MSM combined which I'd gladly consign to a scrap heap, their current data included.

My first 286 PC cost about $3,000 and that was with a large subsidy from the company i was with at the time. Mind you it did include 40 MByte of RAM, a color screen and dot matrix printer. Wooo hoooo. I think it lasted about 2 months before it was superceded by the 386.

Maybe one of those random word generators that our pollies use might be the go?

Hey Larry, don't get a 'desktop' that is now old hat. Get a laptop and have the portability should you ever have the need to be mobile or go to hospital.

I thought Commodore 64s weren't around any more...obviously wrong.

For a master of the 'abacus', you wrote some ripper articles. Can't wait to see what a modern tablet will do for you.
