Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Very pleased with the venue choice. The convention centre's a great size for the number of attendees, easy to navigate, and felt comfortable despite a hot day outside. A big step up from last year (not that there weren't reasons for a smaller venue then).
Further detail on the method used to push the fuel tax increase: they essentially bypassed the Senate in return for having to refund the money if the measure isn't passed by the Senate within one year. With that refund going to fuel companies.
The Liberal spin on this is nothing short of amazing
"The question for [Opposition Leader] Bill Shorten and the question for [Greens leader] Christine Milne is whether in 12 months' time, they want the additional revenue collected through this measure to be refunded to fuel manufacturers or fuel importers, or whether they want to see this additional revenue invested in job-creating, productivity-enhancing road infrastructure."
