The persecution rests
sued the ISP iiNet - and lost.
And established some precedent for ISPs not being liable for what is done over their networks, as I understand.
Much interest burbling, and possibly worthy of its own thread to avoid swamping others - though the title of this one might be appropriate.
I'd leave Hamilton first.
I don't know what to say to that, Michael. Thanks.
I don't think anyone would dispute that they're the same
They needed Auckland University's IP advisors on their side. I'm sure it was all inadvertent.
They sounded good from Point Chevalier – and, I am told, Mt Albert, Kingsland and a number of other suburbs.
Oh yes. Thunderstruck in minute detail, whether desired or not.
By the time Franklin and the current board are finished I bet we'll have a large food hall and an expensive wedding venue
It's probably all that these overfed corporate tossers can relate to - art is only what they invest in for their office walls, so why would you need to worry about having a place for people to create it or rework its history?
The removal of the name, Great Hall, is an insult to those it is named after.
I remember a Six Volts gig in that hall and it was a spectacularly resonant place (both historically and musically). Knowing Rutherford's lab was feet away was the icing on the cake. The cinema on the Dux end of the site was good. Improv performances in another wing showcased the creativity of friends. And Film Society screenings were up a winding staircase with solid worn wood and stone all around. Would have to have coloured my early encounters with Cocteau, Renoir, Visconti, et al.
I haven't seen what they have done to the Centre since but it sounds like our usual practice as a callow nation of trying to make a taonga pay for itself, rather than nourishing and honouring it.
Each passing day of ignoring people who know what they're talking about in favour of witless ideology fills me with more despair
I understand why flags are important but they just don't do anything for me. Same with anthems. Not to say I wouldn't prefer we had a far cooler one of each.
Now about those record rates of joblessness and unemployment..
Old World and New World computing.
Finally found time to read it, thanks.
The reason I’m starting to think the Old World is ultimately doomed is because we are bracketed on both sides by the New World, and those people being born today, post-iPhone and post-iPad, will never know (and probably not care) about how things used to work. Just as nobody today cares about floppies, and nobody has to care about manual transmissions if they don’t want to.
He's a little fanboi-ish and underestimates how similar Google's plans are. However it's a good clear explanation of a trend highlighted by reaction to the iPad.
