    Something the camera couldn't capture - the scent from this lady packed a punch.

  • Hard News: The Vision Thing,

    I really don’t like this bit – maybe quote out of context, maybe not …

    The minister has expressed concern about councils getting involved in social issues …

    As our local elected representatives I fully expect our councils to pay attention to social issues. Now he may be talking about banning gang patches or prostitution bylaws but he could equally well be eying up things like the large amount of social housing Christchurch City Council provides.

  • Capture: Ngāi Tahu, in reply to Adrienne Rewi,

    I was just wondering if you were one of the persons who stopped him and asked for a photo. I was a few steps behind in much plainer dress. (If I'm going to keep getting pressed into service I must get myself a fitting jacket.)

    I took a few photos at the event but nothing spectacular.

  • Capture: Ngāi Tahu,

    Hmm, photos from Kaiapoi on Monday. Adrienne did you happen to take any of a tall pākehā in a black jacket with a large number of shiny buttons? #almostindecentlyofftopic

  • Hard News: The Mega Conspiracy, in reply to 3410,

    Right, so how does Megaupload deactivate a hyperlink on a site that is not their own without deactivating the page linked to?

    Simple - the target page doesn't actually contain any specific content. The link goes to a script which looks at the ID supplied in the URI and then serves up the media that ID is associated with.

    Remove* the association between the ID and the media and the link containing the ID will no longer work. (The page will display whatever message it is programmed to in that instance.)

    *or more likely just toggle a flag next to that ID in the database so you can still track how many people try to use that link.
