      @tomcat @cgiffard That would make me so happy. Maybe it wouldn’t be an hour over two busses get to work! (15 minute drive during peak, Belco to Mitchell)
      simon_w
        @tomcat @cgiffard once Canberra hits the size it was planned for (1 million, IIRC), light rail everywhere will actually be viable. Until then, we get to hope the Liberals don’t win so we at least get one route.
        simon_w
          @cgiffard hopefully the light rail corridor gets extended out to Russell, then the airport. Until then, gotta hope the airport decides to allow an ACTION route.

            @cgiffard the closest is the “airport express [www.canberraairport.com.au]”, which is unreliable even with its barely-running timetable. Doesn’t even run between 12:30 and 3, and stops before flights do.
            simon_w
              @cgiffard Heck, there’s still no public transport to the un-walkable airport. Fix that before high speed rail :p
              simon_w
                @cgiffard Canberra is suffering massively from being designed for cars and not wanting to deviate from the Master Plan™ :( There’s so much better ways of handling growing populations than making them drive everywhere.

                  @cgiffard (Seriously though, it’s forecasted that Canberra will be faster to drive to than Sydney airport from Western Sydney in the next 10 years or so)
                  simon_w
                    @cgiffard and then it’ll be faster to fly out of Canberra than Sydney! :p

                      Using React for the first time. Only managed to use it this time because the compile pipeline already existed.

                        @cgiffard ugh, that’s terrible. Worse we’ve got is different versions of bundle sometimes breaking Gemfile.lock (changing/removing the BUNDLED WITH section)

                          @cgiffard `npm shrinkwrap && git add npm-shrinkwap.json` && git commit` ;)
                          simon_w
                            @cgiffard ah, the erlang movie is great.

                              That’s rather annoying. Was planning on walking home. http://esa.act.gov.au/2016/04/26/esa-bushgrass-fire-advice-8/

                                @cgiffard fire the government? Though that won’t change it now either :(
                                simon_w
                                  @cgiffard on something that barely qualifies as ADSL, with a dynamic IP? I’ll pass :p
