    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Most large business orientated hotels have good lobby/cafe facilities. Pick a chain and check out their Melbourne set up. It will pretty much be the same in all their hotels. Most of them you can see online pics anyway. I used one in Sydney a while back - was fine - cant remember what it was called. Had multiple levels and plenty of free tables and couches, but enough people not to feel deserted. Good range of newspapers etc. For the price of a coffee, not much more overpriced than a hipster dive, you get table service and get to read Fin Review, Govt. Gazette and local rags.

    otoh I cannot advise you on which cafes Eddie Obeid owns or is planning to own.

    Using this spreadsheet I need an 8k monitor-- [28-32" screen, ~1m view distance and 20/10 vision (i.e above average eyesight)].

    If I were to set up a separate tv I certainly wouldn’t want it to have a worse FOV width.

    You don't need it, but you would be able to perceive the difference between that and your current one at least. :)

    My point was that his position on 4k screens goes against a reasonable FOV width which he also recommends, he isn’t being internally consistent. Using 20/20 vision is questionable too.

    eta: having NNEDI3 up-scaling could be a problem at that res.

    True.

    But to actually perceive the difference between 1080p and 4k, people of average eyesight are going to need to sit about 3-4 feet away from a 55" screen. That's pretty darn close.

    Trying to simplify it all a bit, what I'm saying is that, taking into account the viewing and living room situation of most people, there is really no point getting a 4K set that is less than about 85"..... Now that's an expensive TV.

    And you'd still have to sit about 5 feet away to see the benefit. That's very, very close.

    Most people are sitting more like 7-10 feet away. At that point you're looking at a TV that's 120-130" !

    Who has room for that in the house?

    So really it's a choice between

    a) getting an enormous TV that's very expensive and takes up entire wall or
    b) moving all your furniture very close to the TV

    With option B, viewing angles become a big problem if you've got a few chairs.

    Most people seem to be quoting optimum/necessary viewing distance for 4K TVs at 1.5 x picture height. I just don't think that will suit most people.

    I think 4K will go the way of 3D.

    *edit enough off topic stuff, let's move on.

    Could any Sydney members recommend what would be an appropriate weight for flannel trousers?

    I believe 12 oz should be fine, but 14 oz might be getting a bit on the warm side. Thanks.

    It is often the cover up rather than the initial fuck up that brings them down. He obviously didn't take or listen to legal advice, which should have been to the effect that he should not be entirely unequivocal about something alleged to have happened three years previously. Memory is a funny thing, which you know if you have ever looked at an old document which you no doubt wrote, but have no recollection of doing so.

    Whilst I don't doubt he is straight, I'm not sure I would want a Premier who couldn't remember being gifted a $3000 bottle of Grange less then three years ago, or at least who was not canny enough to realise that he may have been but couldn't remember.

    And 14oz is too heavy for Sydney. Let alone 26 oz.

    I bought a Trent Nathan 80% cotton 20% cashmere vneck some years back and I've found it warm enough for autumn here in Canberra. As for winter if its part of a layered ensemble it's fine.

    Do you wear it formally or casually?

    Cut is also important. If you like looser trousers then even 12oz flannel can be a bit breezy on a cold winter's night. Then again if you have your pants super tapered then they will wear a lot warmer.

    In general though I think 10-12oz is the most versatile weight for our climate.
