  • Field Theory: All Blacks v South Africa…, in reply to David Cormack,

    I’ll never understand you Auckland folk and
    your lack of confidence in Conrad…

    ...and now Weepu has left Wellington,
    what's going on up there? - is this more
    Hammett-time? - what's the lowdown
    on this breakdown?

    Love in the time of collarers...
    Didn't anyone think they looked like a bunch of vicars?
    (Sports parsons?) and wearing tube tops? Slappers!

  • Hard News: Friday Fun with Brickface,

    he’s a brick…
    <reposted from Vanilla Buffalo thread
    - ‘cos I thought this one said ’Now Closed">

    Now that this post-Sumerian clay-based ’font’ exists
    would it be possible to make it available as a font to buy
    which might then give Blair some small extra return on
    what looks like a lot of creative work…
    and I’m sure it would be of interest to a lot of type lovers
    worldwide – a font created by an earthquake – I’d love to
    see it mentioned on boing boing and in wired and other places…
    I mean how many fonts have come out of Chchch?
    This would put Mr Parkes up there with that florid font from Strategy for the Chchch Art Gallery* and maybe Max Hailstone – but he was from the UK and mostly taught about type at Ilam. oh and Paul Russell and maybe a few others, but not many…
    Any way I’m all for any initiatives that give Blair more of a profile
    - he is a very multi-talented creator.

    *oh, hang on that was by UK based designer Jeremy Tankard – don’t think he’s a kiwi…

    threadjack...
    Looks like we broke the Brickface Thread!
    was it server overload or sensory overload?

  • Hard News: Science: it's complicated, in reply to Knowledge Bro,

    Bosun Higgs, take it to the bridge...

    Think of matter as a ripple of energy in space, a string if you will.

    Does the string have mass?
    Or is it like light and potentially exists at all points in its path?
    So is it more like a whip ripple (linear) than a radial ripple?
    Or is it both?

  • OnPoint: Easy as 1, 2, 22.8 billion, in reply to Joe Wylie,

    It was Keating who defied parody by emerging from his long post-election defeat back then to describe his old friend Suharto as a “constitutionalist” as the kleptocracy imploded.

    ...at least Helen Clark boycotted Suharto's funeral!

    and lest we forget the Nugan Hand / Indonesia link here's a chilling timeline (all anonymous and unvalidated), I'm waiting for the movie!

    ... and Keating is mentioned in a more reasoned and recent assessment on the Austro-Indonesian relationship.
