Last week, we asked you to submit your questions to iiNet’s CEO Michael Malone and, late Monday afternoon, we put those questions to him over drinks. Read on for Michael’s thoughts on kicking ducks, his angry responses to everyone who thinks Australia is backwards when it comes to the internet, and his advice to people wanting to start their own small business (or to people who want to borrow his car to go for a drive).

I’d never actually been to a Gold Class cinema until last Wednesday, when I rocked up to Event Cinemas on Sydney’s George St for a night with the wonderful games.on.net community and some developers from Paradox Interactive.
It’s not that I have an aversion to big screens, big comfy chairs and a lot of alcohol. The experience, on the whole, seems rather pleasant, minus the irritation of people walking up and down the aisles serving drinks, snacks and what have you. Maybe I’m just not accustomed to having staff when I watch a movie.
Watching the live demonstration of Europa Universalis IV and War of the Vikings though? Bring on the bubbly.

Love Magicka or Mount & Blade? Love War of the Roses? What about Crusader Kings or Europa Universalis or The Showdown Effect? Well you’re in luck, because Paradox Interactive are coming to Sydney, Australia next week on Wednesday 7 August — and they’ve asked us to come along and bring some community members.

With this year’s E3 set to kick off in only a few short days, gaming sites everywhere are preparing to run themselves ragged trying to keep up with the ceaseless thundering of newsfire pouring from the convention centers and hotels of downtown Los Angeles.
Here at games.on.net, we’ll be funneling all of our resources into bringing you as much coverage as we possibly can over the three days that the convention will be running, and for several days thereafter.

In 2010, we kicked off the original Adopt-a-Server Program and gave our admins a server of their own to customise and kit out in any way they saw fit — and a huge number of new servers opened up, boasting all sorts of game modes and configs we just weren’t expecting.
Now, in 2013, we’re taking this a step further. The new Adopt-a-Server Program isn’t just for admins — it’s for you. That’s right, you, reading this, right now. We want to give you the chance to take one of our servers and make it your own.
