I received this (spam) email from Domain.com.au just now. I think I may have stopped subscribing to Domain housing alerts, what, nine years ago?

So, I figured I'd just scroll down and click the Unsubscribe link that any good emailer would provide. Oh wait, there's an Unsubscribe label, but it's not clickable? What the?

It gets better. I thought I'd check out the HTML source for that email. Turns out there is a link:

<a href="file:///Macintosh HD/Users/jessica.crocker/Desktop/QLD_AgentIncentive/_EDMs/https://click.email.domain.com.au/profile_center.aspx...">Unsubscribe</a>

Oh dear, that's not a good effort. Jessica Crocker lists "Basic HTML" as a skill on LinkedIn, too.  :-)

At least she didn't save it under her "so sick of this" folder.

I find it very hard to take this seriously, but money is money i guess.  I'd better put a padlock on my cage full of Newts........

Good job, +iiNet !
 
Okay, colour me impressed. I couldn't see a way out of this for iiNet but I must say this is ingenious.
Summary:iiNet has said it will alert the customers who have had their names and details handed over to Voltage Pictures for alleged online copyright infringement and will work to provide pro-bono legal services to customers.

Kudos! Can't help but be amused by the fact that the movie is now available for free on Netflix Australia..

Sigh.

Imagine what it would be like if just some of our legislators had even the slightest clue about technology. 
You might not think that an academic computer science course could be classified as an export of military technology. But under the Defence Trade Cont...

Sepp Blatter has the full support of Vladimir Putin? That's the kind of backing you want.

If only there were some pool of people out there that Centrelink could use to reduce their phone queues...
 
Almost a quarter of all calls made to Centrelink last year went unanswered, a new report by the National Audit Office has revealed. 

The report estimated that of the 43 million calls in 2013-14 that were able to enter the network, about 13 million were simply abandoned. 

It also found the average wait time for people waiting to speak to Centrelink increased to 17 minutes.

I still think it's hard to go past the Giant Merino for Goulburn tourist attractions, but the Goulburn spider SkyNet could be a contender.

+Renaud Lepage​ here's your periodic "wtf Australia" post.
Millions of spiders rained from the sky in Australia's Southern Tablelands, literally covering homes with webs as the arachnids invaded.

Ah, content rights...
 
Fans have been waiting decades for the 1960s <em>Batman</em> TV series to arrive on home video. After years of struggle, it's finally being released. Here's why it took so long.

Good range of American craft beers including Anchor Steam. The Reuben was a bit dry, but the burgers looked good.

Wonderfully maintained castle, with a fascinating museum. No descriptions in English (when i was there) but interesting nevertheless.

Australian Home Brewing has a great selection of recipe kits, raw materials and equipment for the home brewer, and their service is great - whether contacting you to let you know that something you ordered is going to take a while on backorder (and asking if you want to replace it with something else, or send the rest of the order in advance) to replacing an entire order of mine that went missing in delivery, they're very helpful.

Food was great, particularly the padrons (and more than one in ten was spicy!) and the lamb. Nice looking cocktail list, and a good selection of beers by the bottle. The wait staff were very friendly, though perhaps a little inattentive to the patrons in the back courtyard.

Great service and good coffee. Avocado breakfast was very nice too.

We had an impromptu dinner at Cumulus Inc last night, just stumbling upon it as we wandered along Flinders Lane looking for somewhere to eat. Firstly, the food was fantastic. We had one of the specials - fried peppers - which were great. Salty and smoky, although they weren't at all hot. Some quite nice asparagus was served with a wonderful slow-cooked egg, which had a yolk and white that were the consistency of jam; it was great. A nice corned brisket was served with a cabbage salad with a kick of horseradish, but all of these dishes were topped by an awesome tuna tartare with big, juicy cubes of impeccable tuna that really melted in the mouth. Wonderful! The restaurant (or eating house/bar, as it styles itself) was buzzing when we arrived, even late on a Tuesday night. The noise certainly dropped off as the night progressed, making for a more laid-back experience. Unfortunately, the service was a little mixed. When it was there, it was almost over-friendly, but sometimes the service was non-existent. Overall, though, don't let that put you off - the food is worth every minute of the wait.
