NBNCo’s ACT deployment, rolling out in the direction of backwards

Share

So those who follow me on twitter wont be surprised to discover that since last night I’ve been chasing NBNCo rollout statistics for the ACT. It turns out they now do weekly rollout reports (good), but make it hard to find historical ones (bad). So, I made an index of the reports, which you can see at http://www.stillhq.com/nbnco/.

I also did some historical analysis for the ACT, and its not good. In fact, it seems we’ve rolled out -24 premises in the last two months. That’s right, we’re going backwards:

Oh course, NBNCo doesn’t respond on twitter to a request for an explanation, but that’s what I’ve come to expect.

The Long Earth

Lana put me onto this book while on a trip to Texas, and I have to say I like it. This is very unlike the other Terry Pratchett books I’ve read, in that whilst it is occasionally amusing, it isn’t really an attempt at humor. It is instead a relatively methodical examination of the impact of discovering a series of inhabitable earths a trivial amount of distance away from our own. I also have to say I like the ending, not in the sense of liking what happens, but in the sense that it wasn’t a twee or overly convenient way to stop the book. A good read.
