Victoria releases Y2K program update

The Victorian Government has publicly released its Y2K state of readiness, in accordance with a national agreement reached last year.

The information, available from the Government's Web site, paints a picture of the state of play within the key supply sectors over which the Government has jurisdiction.

The move was welcomed by Senator Richard Alston, and follows the release last week by South Australia of its Y2K compliance update. The public report provides information on Victorian portfolios, local authorities and agencies, with the files available in a downloadable format.

Also available is information on key sectors including electricity, gas and water, designed to reassure Victorian residents, and hopefully encourage private sector reporting.

"South Australia has passed mirror legislation and Victoria has introduced its mirror legislation to Parliament. The Commonwealth looks forward to the passage of legislation in the other States, and urges all State and territory Governments to take a lead from Victoria and South Australia in providing detailed Y2K compliance information to their residents," said Senator Alston.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
