A Melbournestar is born

The site offers links to over 3000 Melbourne-related sites, including car and bus rental, public transport, accommodation, animal rights organisations, real estate, and water polo clubs. Users also have access to a free auction site to buy and sell goods online.

"Melbournestar will never replace Yahoo or Excite as a web service but it is an alternative when the internet user looks for local sites. Yahoo and Excite don't really cater for local users in Melbourne," Kaiser said.

Melbournestar's goal is to be one of the top 500 Australian websites at the end of this year's third quarter. To achieve this, Melbournestar will next month start marketing programs with Melbourne businesses and organisations to increase traffic, according to Kaiser.

Sydneystar and Brisbanestar are currently in the development stage, and will be launched in the third quarter.

Interstar, the company behind Melbournestar, has registered the domain names of 150 star sites worldwide and is planning to launch internationally in 2001.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
