Well, if you had the foresight to wander over to www.whereis.com.au, and plug
in 'Bruce' for the suburb, and ACT for the state, you would have been shown
a streetmap, centered on what looks suspiciously like a 'technology park'.
I can't offhand see a 'Traeger Ct' in there, but technology parks tend to have
lots of twisty little streets, all the same, so my guess is it's probably in
there somewhere.  This, by the way, is called 'research' - a technique you
may wish to avail yourself of before next posting.

It would appear that Telstra _does_ seem to be headquartered in Australia (last
time I checked, anyhow), and their DNS service _is_ at any rate.  I believe
you may owe Kim an apology for the above mistake.  You may also wish to learn
a little more about Australia before further enlightening us with your
wisdom.
