Things Not to Buy at Costco

Found an article on Yahoo! Finance,  4 Things Not to Buy at Costco.  It is talking about US Costco, but I think some of them are relevant to us down under as well.

Things Not to Buy:

  1. Designer's Clothes
  2. Imported Shrimps
  3. Sheets and Towels
  4. 4-kg of Oranges


Things You Should Buy:


  1. Chocolate Truffle
  2. Eyeglasses
  3. Laptops
  4. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

In my opinion, 

Not to Buy:
  1. Designer's Clothes - we may get some designer's clothes that we cannot get anywhere.
  2. Imported Shrimps - Australian product is better.
  3. Sheets and Towels - Target may have cheaper product, but I feel quality of Costco product is better.
  4. 4-kg of Oranges - I hardly get any fruit in Costco.  Bulk size is not for me.  Watermelon is great at Costco though.
Do Buy:
  1. Chocolate Truffle - This is great product with great price.
  2. Eyeglasses - Not sure yet.
  3. Laptops - I think you can get better value from other shops.
  4. Extra Virgin Olive Oil - I will try this out myself.

Brivis Heater - Error Code #69

My Brivis HX23 Heater broke down this week.  H01 Code #69.  This code was not even listed in the User Manual!  Searching around the web and here is what I found: Secret Reset: This is not in the User Manual.  On the networker controller press FUNCTION > 1 > 4 keys and the screen will go blank and come back on after 30 seconds, this has rebooted the main PCB and reset the fault code. Use this with caution as too much gas build up could cause an explosion. Use it only after the unit has enough time to air out the gas build up. What is Code #69 or any other unpublished codes?  The best way to find out is to open up the heater unit.   There is a little LCD on the PCB showing what error exactly is. (Note: Opening up the unit may void your warranty.)

Restricted enrolment schools (Melbourne Eastern Region)

Due to facility limitations, Eastern Metropolitan Region has a number of schools with enrolments restricted in various ways. These schools are not required to enrol students outside their neighbourhood area unless they have spare places. They are referred to as having an enrolment ceiling and/or a designated neighbourhood area (formerly known as zones).  Any additional students must be enrolled strictly according to Department of Education and Early Childhood Development priority criteria. SCHOOLS WITH AN APPROVED ENROLMENT UNDERSTANDING Designated Neighbourhood Area In some instances the Regional Director may need to restrict new enrolments at a particular school and will therefore specifically designate the neighbourhood area (formerly referred to as a zone).  Children who live outside the Designated Neighbourhood Area cannot be guaranteed a place at that school even if it is their closest neighbourhood school.  The the following schools have an apporved Designated Nei
