    We all thought we were pretty connected back in the third form at Cashmere High Radio Club ... CQ... CQ... (mid '70s)
    ... and we could toast our sandwiches at lunchtime!

    I know Chris Trotter isn’t too popular around these parts...

    Surely that's Christ Rotter you're thinking of?

    meet the simplex algorithm*

    YOU MIGHT not have heard of the algorithm that runs the world. Few people have, though it can determine much that goes on in our day-to-day lives: the food we have to eat, our schedule at work, when the train will come to take us there. Somewhere, in some server basement right now, it is probably working on some aspect of your life tomorrow, next week, in a year’s time.

    Sergey Brin’s affair with employee Amanda Rosenberg created strife within Google: report
    The Google co-founder, 40, has carried on the affair with Rosenberg, a Google Glass marketer in her mid-20s, for at least a year. The relationship led Brin to separate with his wife, Anna Wojcicki, and caused him to stop talking to his longtime friend, Google co-founder Larry Page.

  • Hard News: Spring Timing, in reply to linger,

    Does that leave NZ First as Flat Earth?

    Perfect - should supplant No Vote*
    Everything is mutable
    Scorched Earth could

    Chaos theory…

    New Zealand Labour/Green schism

    after The Rupture
    who will be Left behind?

    The full continuum includes:

    United Future – Groomed Earth
    National – Sold Earth
    Conservatives – Square Earth
    Act – Bizarro Earth
    Labour – Salt of the Earth
    Maori – Our Earth
    Independent – Promise the Earth
    No Vote – Scorched earth
    Greens – Heart Earth

    and other less frequented frequencies.

    Lend me your ears …
    6 months
    that’s all we’ve got
    we’ve got 6 months
    it isn’t a lot*

    what’s more they act like light, and smoke, too
    mutable particle waveform hybrids
    if you know where they are,
    you don’t know their speed
    but if you know their speed,
    ya don’t know where they are at
    most of the time they are
    neither here nor there…

    Most importantly
    If ya know where you are
    everything else
    is relative…

    (that’s the Bear, not Murdoch!)

    Smile and planewave…

    Why should I prefer polarized sunglasses?

    So you can live in the light of the parallel world…
    with state controlled propagation…
    A proper gated community
    no time for vacillation,
    or transverse oscillation.
    Only the right light is
    let in by the bounces,
    the rest is left glaring,
    incoherently outside…

    or try seeing it as a
    shortwave light matrix
