Almost no point posting this iinode entry


In a move that has shocked those in the industry, Internode has been purchased by iinet for AU$180 million. Those overseas may know iinet as the Australian ISP being sued for the "alleged" copyright infringement of its customers.

Perhaps because it's the hardest night of the year for the remainder of my family, or that I feel Australian internet is terrible anyway, but I find it hard to be as upset and outraged by this news as much of my online Australian IT cohort. I suppose rearranging the deckchairs may well prove to be an entertaining and distracting sideshow in the coming days though.
