  • Hard News: Crowdfunding Time,

    My first instinct was to send a lump sum as usual but on further consideration I've set up a monthly AP totalling about what I'd expect to be dropping in lump sums over a year.

    The community ... nature? feeling? of Public Address means I'll not feel guilty about dropping the "subscription" should my circumstances change and money get tight in future, and that also has value to me.

    Keep up the good work :)

  • Up Front: Floodland,

    Signal boost: http://sciblogs.co.nz/waiology/2014/03/07/calling-for-christchurch-flood-photos/

    If you took any photos at or near peak water levels anywhere in Christchurch during Wednesday morning or early afternoon, please send them to NIWA (niwafloodphoto AT gmail.com; NIWA email malfunctioning at the moment sorry) with the street address and time, and with the subject “Flood”.

    We will use the images to help identify how high the waters rose across the city. This will help us improve our models so we can provide better flood risk maps in the future.

  • Hard News: A Public Address public appeal,

    Had to wait for some money to come in - and now my internet banking tells me it won't actually be sent until sometime Monday night ... but it's on it's way :)

  • Cracker: Johnny Foreigner & the Auckland…,

    I've lived in NZ all my life with no need of a passport. The only photo ID I possess is my drivers licence and I'm damned if I can see why I should need another. I have friends my own age (30s) with neither, and I think it's fair to say that they feel discriminated against in a number of common situations involving financial transactions.
