Looks like Gallant Ultra is just a concentrated form of Haloxyfop and is generally available... so maybe the fine fescue option and periodic spot or carpet bombing with this stuff is an option?

AirNZ flight delay alert retractions.  They nearly got me at the weekend ...

 

I was just about to get ready to leave for the airport when I got a text alert that my flight Delayed flight by 1hr 45min.  So I find a DIY job to fill the time.

 

Later, another text alert retracts the delay.  The flight is now boarding in <45min. A quick clean up, aerosol shower, into the car (bag was already in there) and off to the airport.  We just made it into the terminal building as the flight was called.

 

I think in the future I'll simply ignore the delay texts.  Better safe than sorry and plenty of vino in the Koru lounge.

Last December, the AirNZ app stated that my flight was cancelled. However both AirNZ and airport websites showed the flight was still on, so I decided the app was wrong and carried on. Flight ended up a bit delayed but otherwise no dramas.

Unless it was cancelled - in which instance I would ring them to confirm - I would agree. Head to the airport and if it is delayed, relax in Koru with good coffee and shortbread.

 

Of course, if it was a Jetstar flight, it would always be delayed and an app would be without point! surprised

Geektastic: The fact that I have to pay twice for an app if I want to use it on my Mac and on my iPad.

 

You don't have to. Choose another app, or another platform.

You do have to in many cases. For example, there is a very good 'to do' type program called Things 3 which has the excellent functionality of automatically syncing across Mac, iPad and iPhone. However, to run it on a Mac in OSX needs one version, to run it on the iOS devices another and they both cost money (and not just 99c either).

 

There are plenty of other things which are the same. Whilst I can see some logic it also seems a smidge disingenuous to me to market something heavily on the basis that it will work across the multi-device ecosystem then charge for each step of that.

 

Some others take the more reasonable (IMV) route of charging once and allowing you to download the version for all the platforms within that cost.

Our local dominos pizza outfit... not sure if it applies nationwide but....

 

They charge $10 per pizza for delivery.   So, if you order 4 pizzas, they charge a $40 delivery fee.  I think this must be a change from when we ordered from them a few months back. 

 

Needless to say, we didn't order dominos, KFC charged $5.70 for the entire delivery, not per item haha.

I do not think whoever runs  the Herald (a group of 12 year olds in someone's Dad's shed by the look of it) actually understands the correct use of the term "News" much less "Breaking News"!

These kinds of complaints keep turning up. But the reason clickbait exists  is because people click on it. If you want something better, support something better.

Limited region B blurays. I quite like UK detective (and other) stuff. Why is it so difficult to get stuff like George Gently on bluray ? Had to get the complete set from Amazon US in region A as the region B version just doesn't exist.

Irresponsible parents.

 

Was riding with daughter on a shared cycleway/pedestrian route (Tawa - Porirua). We both keep left and both have blinking lights-  even during the day.

 

On the other way comes a couple with three small kids. One kid is walking behind the parents. One is on a push scotter and the third on a small bike. Four of then coming abreast. The kid on the bike is behind then floating left to right and back. The parents can see us but still don't move. The kid on the bike continues to go left - right - left. I ring the bell. and finally one of them move and let us through.

 

After we past I can hear the "father" with  a jest tone shouting "ding ding ding ding".

 

Retard.

Yeah it's the worst thing about 'shared' paths. Hence why most cyclists don't bother with them. I mean on Tamaki Drive in Auckland there are people fishing from it.

NB I understand why you're on them with your daughter and by the same token I don't really want to walk a gnats distance from someone doing 30kmh on a bike either.

Thing is... It's about 2.5 m wide, we're keeping left, we have lights on (even at 11am), and it's flat so there's no excuses about "not seeing us".

 

But it's not only these parents. Some people stop to chat and instead of staying on one side they "spread" across the path and won't move out of the way.

 

Some people...
