  • Kyle Matthews,

    I'm getting that, Jon. It started when I updated the flash player to look at the nzonscreen website.

    The automatic redirect to versions of flash that media send you on, often completely screw things. I've sometimes had to uninstall and start from scratch.

    I can live with "view source" or firing up IE on's kinda good to have a reason to use it, to see if there is anything that's actually been upgraded on it....and it also then makes the other browsers look good by comparison.

    Safari - seems to look nicest on the screen.
    Chrome - seems to be leading the tab independence movement, plus some memory utilisation stuff...and has incognito mode...for people who haven't yet moved onto pron of the mind
    Firefox - took on where Netscape left and is Open Source.
    Opera - the Alpha-geek's browser.

  • Sacha,

    I'm hoping Kyle meant uninstalling flashplayer, not the whole flipping browser.

    Ah yes. Through browser is about as easy.

  • steven crawford,

    Key has announcing plans to introduce, the unemployment benefit.

    National's planned support package for workers laid off in the wake of an expected global recession could include loans and cash assistance, the party's leader John Key says. National will announce the package later this week.

  • David Slack,

    Perhaps it is nonetheless a novel concept because it will be achieved without the involvement of any of the dreaded bureaucrats.

    (Would an unemployed bureaucrat qualify for assistance under the criterion of people who the government was confident would again find work over time?)

  • Sacha,

    Yes, no extra bureaucrats needed if they simply decide at a glance which deserving recipients will be employable again "in the medium term" by the time-honoured tradition of observing skin colour, spoken English or the absence of a wheelchair..

    Having said, that I thought Key acquitted himself quite well on Agenda yesterday.
