Question Up-to-date info on life in Lae

Would appreciate up-to-date info (Feb '06) on current expat life in Lae. How good is TISOL? How bad - honestly - is security, carjackings etc? We are an expat family with 10 years experience in other parts of the developing world. Kids are primary school age. Don't have a problem with bad roads potholes etc. but don't want to spend our lives driving in convoy to avoid hold-ups, and we would like to go out at night for a chinese or the yacht club. Should we opt for town centre house or stay 20kms or so outside of town? We would want second hand 4x4, small boat etc. are there good locations for noticeboards with expat stuff for sale? We both know and love PNG from 20 years ago but are totally unfamiliar with Lae itself. All feedback gratefully received, includin specifics e.g. how many supermarkets these days?
