Interesting to see the photo of the Coronation Hall, or the Orange Coronation Hall. I went to Belfast last weekend and did the obligatory "political" tour. The taxi driver was vaguely interested to here that the Order had a NZ presence for a while.
Many happy returns and all that.
I've appreciated having PA/S available since I left NZ in 07 and indeed before I left. I vaguely recall someone, maybe Che, helping me find waffles in Wellington, which was most kind.
Good luck with the future.
I still don't get why Perigo says such awful things though. He doesn't have a dog in this game being an Auckland media pundit, who purports to hold libertarian views.
It would be like an American issuing threats against the slate of candidates in the Dunedin City Council elections. Pointlessly extremist.
I guess it is just a case of "he says (publishes) what other people think, usually while drinking at a pub on Friday night"
That last paragraph of Perigo's comments is particularly awful and shows no connection with reality.
What punches did the Republican Campaign pull? They seemed to attack him on everything from policy to origin, so I’m not quite sure what Perigo thinks they failed to mention. Although I don’t recall seeing any articles linking Obama with the vile tyranny of Emperor Nero so maybe that is what he meant?
Also, when did it become cool for a NZ pundit to use language like “filth unfit to live” about anyone, especially voters in another friendly country. If this is how angrily insane he gets over the decisions of foreign electors what kind of insanity does he think about New Zealand electors?
He actually makes Orson Scott Card’s views look sane by comparison
I take it you are living in the US. What is the mood like if so? Have you been past any voting booths so far?
My I post my annual dissatisfaction that the NZ weather is starting to look glorious about the time London's weather falls off the cliff.
Seems pretty standard operating procedure to plug a USB drive into a computer if you are there to upload a file.
It's also pretty normal to reward people who identify and notify you of security breaches.
In any event I don't see that Ira has done anything wrong and unless actual evidence arrives I will happily donate to his or Keith's legal defence fund.
In any event, this story, especially if it results in a criminal prosecution of Ira or Keith will make us the laughing stock of those who read the tech journals internationally. No one else will give a damm
The third wave of stories will no doubt be on crowd funded journalism, since Keith has met his target again
Scary stuff, certainly worth a donation. I'll even sign a petition if Keith gets locked up on Soames Island
Surely RNZ has a saucy watershed?
