iPrimus broadband goes troppo

iPrimus broadband subscribers who missed the 2003 Intel Tropfest short film festival will now be able to view a selection of the 723 entries received for this year’s competition through the ISP’s new dedicated online library.

Intel Tropfest founder and creative director John Polson said the selection of films for the new library highlights the diversity of Australian story telling and showcases the work of Australia’s emerging filmmakers.

“Intel Tropfest exists to encourage short film production and our partnerships with Primus Telecom enables us to generate new audiences for the short film format,” he said.

Primus Telecom, a major sponsor of the Tropfest event, will make the selection of films exclusive to its iPrimus’ broadband customers only.

As well as an assortment of entries received for the 2003 festival, broadband users will also gain access to one of the 16 finalist films via the iPrimus electronic newsletter.

Primus Telecom general manager Geoff Neate said the offering was in line with giving broadband subscribers access to exciting, quality content.

Although access to the films is free, downloading any of the films, which are about 6MB in size, will come out of the subscriber’s monthly download limit.

The Tropfest festival is held in parks across Australia in February every year.

More information is available on iPrimus’ Tropfest Web site: www.tropfest.iprimus.com.au

And to coincide with the new Tropfest/iPrimus broadband partnership, Primus Telecom is offering one year’s broadband Internet access to Tropfest fans who e-mail them with their choice of which 2003 film they would most like to get access to online and why. The most creative answer will win a 12 month Frustration Free iPrimus Broadband connection valued at $900. Check out the Tropfest Web site at: www.tropfest.com for more details.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
