  • Hard News: Dirty Politics, in reply to mpledger,

    One was by a Mexican American who spoke to her in Spanish and then got mad at her for not being able to speak the language back.

    Did she have a cellphone?

    Or is it just part of his activities as an unpaid shill for the National Party?

    We assume he's not paid...

    Would some caring soul please take away Mr Salmond's shovel? Y'know, before he actually gets to China?

    Steve (Curtis), I’ve blocked you from commenting. Your behaviour is in bad faith, hostile and not acceptable.

    Thanks, Russell

    Russell, I think that perhaps for Speaker posts it’s a good idea to include a line about the author’s political party affiliations and employment.

  • OnPoint: My last name sounds Chinese, in reply to chris,

    My wife’s family name is Tang, I will give you a free car if you can tell me her ethnicity, not simply the country her name originated from, but her actual ethnicity, I’ll give you one guess.

    She's from Raro?

    (I'll just get my coat and hat...)

  • Speaker: House-buying patterns in Auckland, in reply to Michael Homer,

    Property title data, including owners, is public and freely available. The LINZ data service is excellent. To figure out transfers you’d need to compare two snapshots, I think.

    Yeah, nah. The Property Titles layer "provides title information (excluding ownership) where there is a data link to one or more primary parcels."

    You can request access to the Closed Access Group, but there's a hoop or two to jump through first, and a licencing agreement to accept. Still free, as far as I can see, but not immediately available. I know a few people who do have full access and they're usually in the land business (like surveyors, valuers etc). Was quite handy when we were fighting NZTA about the Kapiti Expressway.
