freitasm: Oh, dear... Ken Ring's Earthquake Warning for 20 March 2011.

If he's right, then it's bad. If he's wrong, then good riddance.


Good riddance indeed.

I see the charlatan Deb Webber is claiming earthquake premonitions too.

Free publicity for the both of them every time a news page covers either of them.

I'm in ChCh and it's horrible. A co-worker of mine was telling me about her wee girl who said "Mummy I'm sick of being scared, I don't want to be here on the 20th."

lurker: Arguing about Ken Ring with people drives me nuts. It's pot luck, people seem to ignore every time he gets it wrong.

Lots of people also forget his main focus is predicting weather. There is a good post here looking at the (in)accuracy of his weather forecasts.

Just received:

Computers and IT equipment needed for Christchurch
To support the Christchurch City rebuild, donations of computers, printers, mobile phones and networking equipment are needed.
Tim Findlay, Managing Director, at Remarkit Solutions, says New Zealand Trade and Enterprise has already collected 500 personal computers (PCs), printers and networking devices, but many more are required. 
“Non-Government organizations (NGOs) are working hard to provide IT equipment to those who need it most – this may be because they lost some of their kit in the earthquake or can’t get access to existing equipment. The need to be connected is greater than usual and we have a fantastic opportunity to lend a hand.”
Brett O’Riley, Chief Executive at NZICT Group, says Remarkit Solutions have put together an excellent process for collecting, refurbishing (where required), tracking and distributing the hardware. 
“It doesn’t matter what operating system the hardware is using, it can be refurbished. It is fantastic to see Remarkit receiving donations across the full spectrum. It is a mark of the Kiwi spirit that everyone is willing to pitch in and assist during Christchurch’s time of need.”
The minimum specifications for donated hardware are outlined below:
•         Pentium 4 3Ghz
•         1Gb RAM
•         80Gb Hard Disk Drive (HDD)
•         DVD ROM
Once donated, the hardware will be re-imaged with free copies of Microsoft’s operating system Windows XP and Office 2007 Professional. All licensing fees have been waived by Microsoft.
As a Microsoft Approved Refurbisher, RemarkIT works to a set of criteria to ensure organisations qualify for the donated IT equipment. This criteria has been established by the NZ Federation of Voluntary Organisations who run the TechSoup programme for NGOs in New Zealand.
To donate IT equipment, including PC’s, notebooks, printers, mobile phones and mobile phone chargers, contact Remarkit Solutions on 04 912 2020 or visit them at 130 Waterloo Quay, Wellington.
