    Re: New Heat Pump - Funding

    absolutely. main reason for getting mine was to cool the bed rooms down in summer. sleep so much better and that has big benefits for work during the day. winter heating is a very nice bonus.

    Re: New Heat Pump - Funding

    there is crowds that install them in the hallway, but imho its a hack job. trying to heat several rooms via the hallway should never work well. because the hallway is a tiny space it can cause the...

    not sure. in rural areas your not going that far away from home. its not like your going to town every day. so around the farm it could well be practical. but certainly not for going far away,...

    Re: Frustrating

    they get cunning.
    like the IRD scams that they send only at the right time of year when your expecting it.
    they can use public data bases to check when car rego is due etc.

    Re: Help with Tinywall firewall, please

    first thing is tinywall is not a firewall, its a front end to windows firewall.
    not to be confused with tinyfirewall which i think i used many many years ago now and is probably long gone.

    Re: Can't believe..........

    house fires go fast, much faster than what people think. thats why you bail out and stay out.
    in a lot of cases the fire crews are there to stop it spreading to the next house, not to try and save...

  12. Re: Fog over Auckland - airport closed. Why is that?

    not to mention noise. afaik those low bypass engines where pretty noisy.
    probably something they didn't worry about in zambia.
  13. Re: Fog over Auckland - airport closed. Why is that?

    yeah, it was implicated in one of the airliner crashes. it was common for them to fail. but typically when they faulted the pilots turned them off and flew as normal.
  14. Re: Fog over Auckland - airport closed. Why is that?

    no, more to do with the airport. assuming where talking passenger planes. most if not all have ILS system of some sort on the planes. but common to have small airports to be visual landing only (no...
  15. Re: Fog over Auckland - airport closed. Why is that?

    ILS only gets them most of the way, they still have to land by sight for the last little bit. there is minimum visibility levels for ILS landings.
    however modern craft/airports can have radar guided...
  16. Re: All policing should be based on the Peel Principles

    sorry, your simply wrong.
    plenty of cases in the media to prove it. the classic one was the maori occupation that the govt wanted moving on, but police told them no. big write up on powers of...
  17. Re: All policing should be based on the Peel Principles

    you need to flip that around.
    while govt makes the law, which in theory should control police, in reality police dictate what they do with it.
    while govt may appoint top cop, they have to appoint...
  18. Re: All policing should be based on the Peel Principles

    no, sorry to say it doesn't happen that way.
    this was well shown when govt wanted protestors moved on and police said no.

    police are intentionally independent of govt and can basically do what...
  19. Re: All policing should be based on the Peel Principles

    unfortunately that won't work here because police are an independent body, independent of govt and of the public.
