Why does Whatsapp exist, exactly? It just mirrored my contacts and lets me send them short messages - isn't it what SMS is for?

While I get free unlimited SMS within Australia, if I want to text any of my friends overseas, it costs me 50c per message, so Whatsapp is way better because there are no charges. Other than that, I guess it's not really that different to SMS.

Just bought my plane ticket and got my visa for going to Australia in Feb for 12 days


even though i asked work 4x if my vacation for next year starts on my hire date or the 1st of the year and all 4 times they said 1st of the year, i got told today (after i booked my flight) that now i dont get it until my hire date which is 2 weeks after my vacation they are trying to find any reason to keep me from going.

That's what people told me at first, and I thought it would be an SMS-thingy for people overseas... but then it automatically added every-bloody-one on my contacts list and I'm afraid of being dragged into a world of spam and mass chain messages by the hippie side of my family. As much as I love them, I'm tired of reminding them prawns and vitamin C are not a lethal mix, and the magnetic north won't blow the planet up during the next magnetic shift.

Do I have to block every single person on Whatsapp until I'm left with a group I'm comfortable with?

That's weird, as far as I know the only people on my Whatsapp are the ones I've added myself. It never added all my contacts automatically. That would piss me off too, lol.

My sister contacted me within minutes, and I even had a list of "favourites". I tried to find out where I could manage my contacts and it seems I could either block the ones I already had or add new ones. And that's about it.

Apparently I don't even need to have these people in my contacts - I someone's got my phone number, that's enough to grant them a place among my Whatsapp contacts. I'm no privacy freak, and I surely don't give people my number at random, but it's still quite unsettling, really.

WhatsApp is immensely popular here in the Netherlands. It's way more popular than SMS because it's free, that is if you are on a data bundle (which almost everyone is).

Everyone who's already in your phone's contacts and who has WhatsApp installed will automatically appear in your WhatsApp contacts. Thus, you can instantly see who has WhatsApp installed and who hasn't. If you ever remove a person from your contacts, the WhatsApp history with that person will remain visible. But like you said, you can always block someone.

You can very easily send photos and videos which you can't using SMS. Also, I'm in several groups. My family, my football team, various groups of friends. Last week we were planning a weekend with a group of friends. We made a new group chat specifically for that weekend and everything related to the weekend got posted there.. so you don't have to spam other group chats where most of those friends are in.. but also other people who wouldn't want to receive all those messages.

And if you're fed up with a group, you can always leave it or just silence it for a certain period.

There might also be places where you can access internet but not mobile reception.

Yes. I have a very strict no IMming me unless you're out of the country policy. I made it fairly obvious that if you send a whatsapp message instead of a text i will start believing in god, just so that i could swear to said god that the next time we meet i will stick a rusty fork into your eye.

People get the message.

I only tolerate using whatsapp with one person, who just happens to reside out of the country, everyone else, it's their eye to lose.




On a slightly less sociopathic note, I realise that waitresses being flirty with customers is a good business decision since it helps them to get tips even in non tipping , but isn't literally (and yes, I actually mean literally not figuratively) pressing their boobs that were barely contained by their shirt against ones face at a cafe that is nowhere near crowded enough to make that necessary going well beyond the call of duty?

(12-27) 17:31 PST SAN FRANCISCO -- A teenage boy who was shot dead in San Francisco this month was slain not by an enemy but by an accomplice in a street robbery, after a bullet fired at the victim ricocheted off his face, police said Friday.

I had to read the article to understand what happened.

indeed.

That's what I'd do, minus the fork-twisting bit. I went as far as using a spare number I had just for Whatsapp, but it automatically imported all contacts from my phone.

That's a way to keep your costumers abreast of your services

LOL! Were you at the party?


Posted by Psyshell on Jan-04-2014 08:12:

Yeh it was great, I certainly learned a few things about how some groups like to act from their behavior.

It was meant to be a 3 day festival starting from new years eve to january 2nd (running till 6pm or so). The first night ran somewhat as planned with 2 stages (the facebook event said there was going to be 3, but that's not really a big issue). There were about 400 people with the main dancefloor being absolutely packed at peak time (4am new years day).
here's a video from new years eve in the late afternoon.

Then the next morning at about 10am the local park rangers and police arrived at the request of the local hicks. In total I think there were somewhere between 7-20 locals/regular campers that were accross the other side of the river about 1.5-2km away. They seemed very distrustful and disrespectful of our presence and were complaining to the rangers about the stupid doof doof music. The rangers were extremely unhelpful and claimed a bunch of things that were mostly not true. Like for one claiming the organisers needed public liability insurance despite the fact that the party was free and therefore not actually a business or organized in that way whatsoever. It is after all no different to 4 people turning up with a car stereo and camping somewhere, just on a slightly larger scale. They also claimed that there was lots of rubbish everywhere despite the event organisers providing bins that everyone used and when prompted the rangers couldn't actually point out any rubbish that was outside of a bin/tent. It goes without saying the beer drinking locals however did not have the same respect for the enviroment; which ofcourse also had a blind eye turned to it by the rangers.

Apparently though they then claimed that we were breaking the total fire ban, despite the fact there were maybe 3-4 people doing that out of 100s, and the bogans across the river were actually lighting big bonfires which the rangers seemed to not care about. Fucking hypocrites. So basically the 2 main stages got shut down during the day and a lot of people left. There were still about 200 in total however.

Later on at around 10pm someone else started up a fairly medium sized stage (maybe with speakers at about 1/2 the size or volume of the one in the video) about 200m from the original main stage. After a couple of hours that was kicking off pretty well and an hour later the local cops came (but not the rangers) and simply told us to turn it down. Which we did (a little) and then the cops didn't come back. That's usually what police did when they come to raves/warehouse parties/similar in Melbourne, that or they simply come, take a look and then don't come back. That stage kept on rocking till about 2pm the next day and apart from a 10ish hour break during the 2nd day the party went pretty well.

That said, when I went to overhear the rangers talking to the locals they were seriously total ****s. They were sitting there talking about how great it is to fine people and when the locals saw that I was listening to them talking to the rangers they were constantly giving me the "go away" look. Justice is meant to be public after all so I think those guys can just get over being overheard. I think honestly it was pretty selfish that 7-20 people felt the need to complain about music that was for 400+ people when 98% of the rest of that river was perfectly quiete and they could've moved a little further away and been fine. I overheard the main group of people bitching to the rangers saying they were actually 5km from the main stage. "New years even ruined" my ass.

There's also this article which lays out what the event organisers said to the journalist in the original article.
http://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au...-out-at-claims/

How was everyone else's new years by the way? Mine was pretty great musically and socially but I think I've overheard enough talk of the healing powers of a certain friend of a friend of mine's crystal candles for the rest of my life.

it was ait.

sounds like yur typical freetekno to me.
"Ms Ryan said people remained at the site on Thursday and could not be requested to leave until they were sober." Except this :P
the times I've been part of running free parties like this, when the cops show up full force (usually 3-4 hrs after first surveying the party), they don't give a fuck what state yur in, go away means fuck off now :P


Posted by Psyshell on Jan-04-2014 14:59:

Well the funny thing about that comment is it's actually pure misinformation(again if you pay close attention, that came from everyone's favourite clueless ranger and not a cop). There's no way they'd be able to force people to leave anyway. There's no laws against 400 people deciding to camp together after all. I don't think "sorry you don't look local so you can't camp here" would go down too well either. To state the obvious they weren't going to get rid of the locals(even the rubbishey firebirdey ones lol). They could probably get people to leave if it was at a warehouse/bridge location though.


Posted by itsamemario on Jan-05-2014 00:43:

public nuisance? disturbing wildlife?
endangering protected beavers?

i mean, if they wanted to shut it down, they could.
but seems like the rangers were just too dumb to know how
to throw the rulebook at them.

did a party in the forest with some other people this summer, 3 day-thing, mostly prominent locals but got alex flatner to headline, so was kinda cool, considering we were on a tight budget. after delivering him at the airport I went home to sleep, and while that was happening the cops came and busted it down. they had been there earlier to survey, but left. but shit they came from all directions, just circling in. told the main guy he could keep three people to help him clean up :P
lol, this was on sunday, not before wedensday was all the equipment down, and he had to stay up there with it also haha. suuuuucks. but that's party life. we're thinking of doing a outdoor winter thing. could be cool. or cold at least.
