My father, who is not homeless, but lives in a house bus so is of no fixed abode, is registered on the electoral roll at my house.
Which, of course is not necessarily an option for many homeless, but is a way around many of the 'must have a postal address' issues for those who can find a friend or family member with space in their mailbox.
This has been for sale in Grey Lynn for a while now with no takers. Unfortunately it has pre-USB SCSI or parallel connections, which could require somewhat advanced computer smarts. From memory, if it’s still working as claimed a mid 90s Mac should happily drive it. Apart from it lacking a USB port it appears the same as my old A3 size X12USL, which passed away around 3 years ago.
SCSI to USB adaptors are a thing, we have an ancient densitometer that connects nicely with one of these: http://www.ratocsystems.com/english/products/U2SCX.html
As with anything SCSI, it can take a bit of fluffing around, but it does the trick.
BTW they also point out that almost all the “probiotic” foods/pills etc are just large doses of brewers yeast (Saccharomyces) which is kind of pointless and usually quite expensive compared to just eating brewers yeast (which I don’t think is worthwhile either).
Being a home brewer, I get plenty of brewers yeast in my diet, plus plenty of fermented product. :-)
While it’s true that food makes us fat, food also keeps us alive.Sugar is a nutrient, not a poison.
Sodium is a nutrient, vital to our health. I don't recommend eating refined chunks of it.

I don't really see the problem, as long as its not one vote per property within the local authority.
In theory Bob Jones could have (and possibly has) bought a property in every city and district in NZ. That gets him one vote in every city council and district council election. That's not significantly more power than anyone else has.
If it was one vote per property even within the area, then Bob would have distinctly large block of votes towards the Wellington City Council, which would be disproportionate, and could lead to abuse.
Brewed ginger beer will contain small traces of alcohol, but is sold to minors. Correct? Analogous?
0% alcohol beer contains 0% alcohol, but is not sold to minors (really, try to get it at Countdown if you look under age). Probably even more analogous.
Raglan… that’s kinda like claiming Petone is not part of Wellington. I mean technically it’s not, but
Well, its more like claiming that Foxton Beach is not part of Wellington. Cos it ain't. Its the best part of a 2 hour drive from central Aucks and you have to go through Hamilton to get there unless you like unsealed back roads.
I'm pretty sure the wording of the referendum isn't "Which flag do you choose to bow down and abase yourself before". Even the FB lunatic fringe haven't raised that one yet.
For the fans of 90s kiwi guitar bands, some good news: I am reliably informed Hamilton band Inchworm is reforming for a reunion gig sometime mid-March.
My first year at Uni was the first year that course costs were higher than the cost of books (1990). I managed to get through three years without developing a huge debt, partly from working many hours at McDonalds, partly from living rent-free and fed at home with mum, and partly because the student loans scheme didn't really kick off until 1992ish. I'm probably one of the last to squeak through without debt, which was a huge factor in my being able to get onto the housing train in '95, leading to my lovely suburban lifestyle today.
I have been saying for years that I would rather be paying higher taxes and have decent education and health for my kids, and, especially, for the kids of those less fortunately middle-class than I.
It breaks my heart to see ads telling me I can support less fortunate kiwi kids for only 50c a day. That's not the New Zealand I grew up in and not the one I want for my (currently hypothetical) grandchildren.
