    Or a dogbox assembler :)

    Have you seen what the dog does with doors? If a self inflicted confinement in the bathroom cannot save the door, what's a box gonna do for the master?

  • Jolisa,

    Via @kalena, the motherlode of earthquake stories, pinpointed on a map of the city. The one located out to sea is certainly worth a read!

    There's a hole in my heart...
    a new initiative in Christchurch to make creative use of the new empty spaces - Gap Filler come along to the first evening event...

    Mind this gap!
    Opening Thursday 25 November

    Temporary garden café, petanque, live music, poetry readings, outdoor cinema...

    832/834 Colombo Street
    Previously South of the Border restaurant
    and Denis Moore Auto Electrician

    get involved with your city, tell your friends, contribute or just enjoy...

    Disclaimer: Out of the void - I have a gap in my life from that site as well - many years before, it was a pool and pinball parlour, where I can just remember completing a 50 hour pinball marathon with Paul Corliss, who went on to much more productive work in the Union movement (and fly-fishing!)

  • Joe Wylie,

    According to those worthies at Environment Canterbury, whose authority is untainted by anything so grubby as having been democratically elected, "The earthquakes being felt in Christchurch today are still part of the normal aftershock sequence from September’s magnitude 7.1 earthquake."

    So, rest relatively easy folks. Except, according to Earthquake Commission (EQC) chief executive Ian Simpson, they’re a whole new quake swarm. Does the EQC know something that Environment Canterbury doesn’t? Not necessarily. As the Press dutifully reports:

    "That means that people whose property was damaged by the quakes will have three months to lodge their claim and there is no need to rush home to check if they are away,” Mr Simpson said.

    What they don’t mention is that any claims for damage – and there’s been rather a lot – will have to be lodged from scratch. Think of your excess, and don’t even dream of tacking them on to any claims you might have made for those unrelated earlier quakes.
