    gov closes census website ! , it was bound to happen, all the hype about privacy gets proven to be almost impossible to secure.
    we signed up and then saved and exited before filling anything out, this way we had "attempted" to complete, i honestly had a gut feeling this morning something? was going to happen and thus it did.
    so as far as the gov is concerned " i tried" but got cut off.
    we signed in again @ 10pm and got a message the site was " busy " so we went to bed.
    yippee.
    i'll give them general info but not the colour of my undies !!

    Pigs arse it was a ddos. It was just the entire population trying to get in at the same time. TBH if I was the dev/host I would have told the stake holders the same thing. lol

    thats what i said to helena, if the police have it, the tax office does,the electorial role have it and THEY both say its all private that should mean they don't share.
    so if you don't do it how are they going to fine you? where will they get your name from?
    and if they can then whats stopping them from sharing.
    its all BS bigbrother.
    ----------
    i'm doing a green house so researching planting etc on youtube, there is a big thing over there now where they want to ban people from growing there on vegs etc, and swapping seeds !!
    they are saying "we need to." ( sound familiar ) so people don't eat bad vegs !!!!!!!!!!!
