It's like a video, but cooler. Because it's on the line.

Where adolescent children dance to silly music and share it to their "followers".

From the Herald: "Williams said it would not be inappropriate to comment on an individual case, while Immigration New Zealand general manager enablement, Stephen Dunstan, said legal reasons prevented any further information."

 

So what is it then?

There are language where double negatives are OK, emphatic negation, including African-American Vernacular English: "That ain't none of your business" or "I couldn't care less."

Anyhow, a lawyer doing this does sounds stupid.

kingdragonfly: There are language where double negatives are OK, emphatic negation, including African-American Vernacular English: "That ain't none of your business" or "I couldn't care less."

Double negatives were common in written and spoken english prior to the 18th cent. Someone wrote a book of rules at that point and tried to ban it. In practice the usage continued.

Anyhow, a lawyer doing this does sounds stupid.

It's either a lawyer having some fun or an nz herald transcription error. ; ).

Going from bad to worse for the Herald - some genius there decided it would be a good idea to entirely redesign the Android app. It looks like crap now, way too busy. At least the old one was compact.
Of course, they have a gushing story about "how great it is" and probably how everyone in the world loves it, and blah blah blah...

Same update in iOS as well (I use both). I wonder how much more of my data this is going to waste? Mind you, with the standard of journalism displayed in the NZH, the phrase “Lipstick on a pig” springs to mind.

Had an online chat just now:

 

Me: after approximately a minutes usage in landscape mode it rotates to portrait mode and will not revert. You have to restart the app. So it is not holding the selected rotation.

 

CCC: We have been advised of a bug issue with the rotation on some of our users Apps, this has been addressed with our Technical Team who are working on an immediate fix.

“Sorry, this story is not available in the app”

Anybody had more than enough of this page? I had it on the 2nd headline on the front page, main headline in business, 2nd & 4th in sport. Pathetic coding. If the article is not available, populate your array without it. Simple “If, If Not, If Not If” front end code.

Which intermediate school does NZME use to do their coding? Do they pay the kids? Or is it an introduction to internships?
