Of all of the new domain names (Generic Top Level Domain or gTLD for short) being released I think that .club will generate the most interest due to the huge range of clubs around (or common interest groups) – sporting, creative, support … the list is endless.
- And so on …
Of course the benefits of having a relevant domain name are obvious – Ballarat Archery Club would surely rate highly in search results if their web-page is hosted at www.ballaratarchery.club.
BUT BE QUICK … even if you don’t currently have a website it would be worth registering the name NOW. There are many individuals ( commonly known as cyber-squatters ) trying to make a quick $$$ by registering a desirable name & selling at a grossly inflated price.

New NBN Mascot?
Perhaps I’m being mean but I think ‘Wi-Fi Snail’ is the perfect mascot for the NBN. All of that Fibre Optic bandwidth being squeezed out at Wi-Fi’s inherent slow & unreliable speed … it’s ridiculous! I’m not saying that Wi-Fi is not capable of distributing the NBN at top speed – but very few people have the equipment to achieve it.
Let’s review the facts …
The Internet is a series of tubes (according to Alaskan Senator “Techno” Ted Stevens) – actually it’s not, but let’s use Ted’s analogy to make our point.
Most NBN installations are set-up with a Wi-Fi router to distribute the signal around the home. This is where our 50Mbps – 100Mbps Fibre Optic ‘tube’ gets clamped down to the Wi-Fi throughput which (in most cases) is far less than advertised – PLUS it’s shared amongst all of your internet enabled devices in the household. Phones, Set-top Boxes, Tablets, iPads even your new internet enabled fridge. And the wireless frequency (2.4GHz or 5GHz) is clogged with other traffic – your neighbour’s Wi-Fi, your cordless phone, garage door openers & any other enabled device.
