"Just to play devil's advocate. Tell us why they annoy you - if they had NSW people working for them as their agents; would that make a difference? Note - I definitely disagree with some of their actions. I would however suggest they have been…"
"That's great Ben - keep up the good work.
I was wondering what your impressions were, subsequent to the recent Great Map Schism of 2012. I figured 20% of Australia disappeared overnight - with whole towns such as Townsville just vaporised.…"
"It's nice to see a well thought out response to the ACA dribble from Crikey.com. However in a similar vein to ACA here we see a probably genuine belief that children should be dressed up in safety vests on their way to school. I…"

"OK, so do you wish to progress further updates of the map from external sources (such as myself), or would you like to leave it as it is? :-) I could understand the latter given the amount of work that I know that you would have…"
"The rail station locations have been extracted from the OSM database - then reconfigured and superimposed on a google map. The google map is just facilitating the display of the information by allowing its computer power to dynamically generate the…"
""The OSM data can't be copied from any other map"
Zed, I don't understand the significance of this comment, as the map that appears on the link is from Google Maps. I respect OSM's business model of original data, but…"
"Well, yeah, but the WCWR is hardly a commuter service, though I wonder if you could take your bike on it if touring and wanting to avoid a few hills between Strahan and Queenstown. There is also a tourist train at Don near Devonport."
