6RepliesHi all, In my summer holidays I've orginised to go to brisbane. Since I'm a Uni student and a little poor ahaha I've decide that when I get to the brisbane airport I will take the train into the city rather than a taxi coz it'll be cheaper. With that in mind I realised that if young people wanted to come to adelaide and didn't want to take a taxi the only other opinion is the shitty bus. I think it would be great if we built a tram that went from Victoria square to the airport and up the old...Last reply by ChillyPhilly in Visions & Suggestions 1 hour ago
1282RepliesNice article on the sunday mail last weekend about the new adelaide airport. Looks stunning, from the renderings and i really like the glass design which gives an unprecendented look at the adelaide cbd with the adelaide hills as a backdrop and the great coastline. Can't wait for it to open!Last reply by ChillyPhilly in Infrastructure/Transport Development 1 hour ago
5RepliesI often get asked why I hate the Dyson Airblade. Often times people won't ask and I will awkwardly raise it as a conversation piece out of the blue. Grandma - The weather is nice today. Me - I f**king hate the Dyson Airblade. Let's step back a bit. Yeh I'm a germaphobe when it comes to public toilets. People in general are disgusting, and fail to wash their hands properly, if at all. When I go to a public toilet I will not directly touch the taps or door handles. Having a touch tap or a...Last reply by Waewick in The Pub 10 hours ago
5RepliesIt's official. Our stalwart 2000 and 2100 'Jumbo' trains are to be decomissioned. DPTI are taking Expressions of Interest, to be submitted by 6 November. https://www.tenders.sa.gov.au/tenders/t ... er-details Personally I think a number should be sunk offshore to form an artificial reef/fish haven of sorts. NYC did similar with a heap of old Metro trains off the coast of Delaware.Last reply by ChillyPhilly in Infrastructure/Transport Development 10 hours ago
3RepliesStarting a thread for interesting residential architecture & construction, be they in Adelaide city, suburbs, or further afield in SA.

Walkerville DTEI Redevelopment
Written by Howie Friday, 16 April 2010 16:23
AdelaideNow have an update on the Walkerville DTEI redevelopment today.
THE former Transport SA building at Walkerville is set to be reborn as a $60 million residential and hotel complex.
Melbourne-based Asian Pacific Building Corporation wants to convert the building into 436 rooms, including 336 apartments, 100 hotel suites and 32 serviced offices.
With an indigenous art-theme, there would also be a gymnasium, café and restaurants, galleries, swimming pool and tennis court.
APBC chief executive officer Will Deague said the project would signal a potential future extension of the CBD area.
"We saw the site advertised and as we have done a very similar project in Melbourne, and specialise in the refurbishment of this style of building, we then investigated the location and came to the realisation that it is one of the premier suburbs in Adelaide and couldn't miss out on the opportunity."
The apartments will cost buyers from $299,000 to $1 million plus and will be available in November 2012.
The building was purchased from the State Government for about $12 million.

New Feature Sensational-Adelaide Forums on Iphone #Tapatalk

One of the drawbacks of our forum is that up until now it's been difficult to navigate through a mobile phone such as the IPhone. So it's been made a high priority that we sort this issue out.
We'd like to introduce to you a third party application on the IPhone called Tapatalk. It's a slimline forum browser, and we've just finished with the registration of Sensational-Adelaide onto the Tapatalk platform.
To install this app, you need to search for "tapatalk" on your IPhone's App Store. Then browse for Sensational Adelaide. Tapatalk Free has limited functionality (such as you can't see fullscreen images, reply to threads etc, but there is a paid version where this functionality is available. Note we don't make a cent from Tapatalk, we're just taking advantage of their platform.
Here's what it looks like once installed.
We'll be making quite a few more changes in the coming months, so stay tuned.
