Tonight we went to Carindale to take advantage of the late-night-Wednesday-because-Thursday-is-a-public-holiday deal. It was fantastic, hardly anyone was there. It was like having almost a whole shopping centre, with all the staff, almost exclusively dedicated to serving you. We got a new mobile and put a few more things on the wedding registry at Myer.
In the last few days I have been looking at our telephony options our soon-to-be home. We're getting Bigpond cable for internet, and i'm pretty sure that i'm going to go for a VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) solution primarily for the phone mainly because of the damn cheap rates.
I'm looking at the big-brands for the VoIP, and Engin seem pretty good: 10c untimed calls anywhere in Australia, 27c calls to mobiles, and only $9.95 a month for access. Plus you can leave anytime you want without penalty.
The plan is to have a normal Telstra landline phone for at least the first 9 months to take advantage of half-price internet, and if the VoIP turns out ok, I plan to drop the landline completely.
