hadn't realised Celia...
...she was but a 'feisty waif' selling records in Real Groovy's first Queen Street store when I first met her, IIRC... Rip It Up deliveries, early '80s...
they’ll probably fix it soon I left a snarky comment
Fixed - they're quick tonight!
- shame their original error has to remain in the story url - otherwise they'd have to delete from the system entirely and repost - the large print giveth and the small print taketh away - yet again - thank you Mr Waits!
Good old Stuff - spelling is not their strong suit...
addition - how hard is that?
Close enough is good enough it seems these days.
I guess those extra ds cost big money while the vowels are cheap enough.
That story is bad enough FFS, without adding illiteracy to the mix!
(they'll probably fix it soon I left a snarky comment - though sometimes they just ignore those and leave any old tosh up - no bloody standards!)
information is broader than those things

A growing number of scientists, Gleick writes, are beginning to wonder whether information "may be primary: more fundamental than matter itself."
It’s a pain checking back manually every now and then.
the http://publicaddress.net/system/ ‘portal’
gives you a fairly painless quick reference on the ongoing status of all recent threads – in time order.
extends it to all threads
and you could just leave that window open and refresh as needed, microseconds of effort...

pocket vaporisers …
They're that expensive?
I'd heard drugs burnt holes in your pockets....
Speaking of polls and serious research - Chchch's own openminded investigative reporter - Mike Yardley, turns in another fully researched piece on the epidemic of drugged drivers in Canterbury.
sorry that should read another load of self-opinionated self-serving tripe from Mike Yardley's paranoid universe....
I assume this is a pop-culture resonance with Tarkovsky's haunting film 'Stalker' and its enigmatic 'Zone'....
…. apparently good ideas are so thin on the ground that this one bubbled to the top.
They may have found it in some lost baggage!
The way I see it is that if mass-implemented it would be the ultimate Public Private Partnership for schools – the parents supply the buildings!
Then leave the kids to ‘their own devices’!
- like that works well on average…
…and what happens to the access of the newly created Ministry for Vulnerable Children, and wraparound services, when the kids are taken out of daily sight of the newly interconnected schools and agencies?
A system (of sorts) exists for those who needs to use it now, that could be improved, but no need for all and sundry to do it.
