John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

It’s kinda obsolete anyway. Gender doesn’t have to show on licence but it’s still recorded somewhere, along with any other personal details. The licence no. is just used to access the wider data set. Photo of the licence holder is sufficient to ID the person using it.

**** if I know. TPG's "super fast" internet, which seems pretty bloody quick now!

As an indicator, an episode of Game of Thrones now takes about 8 mins to download, as opposed to about 50min with Telstra Bigpond before I switched over.
Legal download I assume ;)

Apparently gender has not been on QLD licenses since October 2016. Weird that it’s being reported as new news
