Big surprise: moving house sucks

Up to five vanloads and the difference in furnishings is now visible. Still all of the big stuff and computers to go yet. And everything hurts.

ADSL has been provisioned on the new line — only a day over schedule, pretty good for Telstra — the ISP in between (ArachNet) is pleasantly surprised and has been most helpful throughout.

The better half of the neighbours/landlords is a Laotian whose name is pronounced “No”; her best friend is pronounced “You”, and her son is “I” (or “Aye”). Conversations can be... odd. Shane (the worse half) reckons that having a “Yes” (as in “Aye, Aye”) and a “No” in the house can be a bit disorienting. (-:
