QLD govt site shut down by porn links

A ministerial report into the matter is underway to investigate how the links appeared on the site, a spokesperson from the Children's Commission said.

It is believed the links connected the Commission website to sites with information about drug use and pornography including a cartoon "The Crack Babies" and cocaine recipes. The cartoon depicts children in nappies talking of oral sex, prostitution and a brutal murder of a policeman by a child with a gun and a child with a knife.

According to the spokesperson from the Children's Commission, the site will resume operation once the report and internal investigation has been completed and issued to the Minister for Families, Youth and Community Care.

The matter was raised by opposition member Allan Grice in question time in Queensland Parliament on Thursday.

The Children's Commission website provides parents and young people with information on services provided by the Commission.

The Commission refused to comment further on the shut-down until the report is completed.

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
