Another great Geekzone evening, thanks Nate and team.
We also have some good news, (and unfortunately some bad news) for Outram.
The good news: after extensive discussion on the matter of at least 30 seconds, TimA and I mutually agreed that Outram should get fibre to home sponsored by BigPipe.
Now for the bad new: we were unable to actually secure the sponsorship from BigPipe :(




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

BigPipeNZ: [censored at request of VF *sadface* ]



Actually, it was censored at the request of the person in the pic, not VF :P  Personally, I'd ask before publishing pics of anybody online ;-)

That sounds like a huge pain. 

Luckily we have very very very small print on the stickers saying that by accepting the sticker on their body they grant full permission to Flickky to do anything and everything to anybody wearing them.

NikT: Many thanks to Nate, Tuihana, Bigpipe, and whoever was kind enough to set alarms on all of my phones. :)


A wide range of alarm times? middle of the night ones? or all 5 seconds after each other?





<- don't ask me where I am - I haven't a clue: its a tech thing ;)
Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.

None of them had SIM cards, so the times were all off as they were set to other time zones and had no internet connection to correct them. I did discover a feature of the Smart 4 fun I wasn't previously aware of - if powered off, it will turn on for alarms. Handy. Or not, as the case may be.
