For some reason, people from down under can't seem to access Universe Today. Can anyone from Australia who understands computers please run a traceroute to universetoday.com, and then post the results here? Especially if it's timing out for you.

Ok, nevermind. My ISP figured out the problem and fixed it.

If I remember correctly, the NZ internet is connected to Australia before running to the world.

Once again they forgot that for proper access to northern hemishpere systems, the servers in AUstralia must be turned upside down.

Oh, I do have to mention:

It appears that Australia is once again 'flavour of the month' in the US.

I have to tell you - if you see someone claiming to be Australian and drinking Fosters beer - ask to see their passport.

As a rule, the majority of beer-drinking Australians consider Fosters to be so bad that the only thing to do is export it to unsuspecting countries.


A friendly warning...

Yeah, I haven't seen a Fosters, or drank beer out of a can, since the 1980s. :)

There's nothing wrong with a can of VB or Carlton Draught thank you very much! Tinnies tinnies tinnies ...

Oh, VB is quite popular and so is Carlton Draught (pulled by horses).

I should mention I don't drink beer (how un-Australian of me). I'm a Bundy boy.

Give me a Coopers pale Ale or Coopers Sparkling anyday .. Although for tomorrow I've got some home-brews (Coopers Real ale) ready to go with the BBQ! ;-)

Plus while they're not Australian, Kirin and Asahi beers (Japanese) are at the top of my faves list too.

But there's no going past a good old South Aussie Coopers pale for me!
