    Re: Spark product recall

    For goodness sake, you clearly have total ignorance about what goes on in a disaster scenario. The "Canterbury" phone calls were for a huge variety of reasons, both outgoing and incoming. Some were...

    Re: IRD email scam - worth reporting?

    Well, this time IRD did acknowledge my report, though they must be getting sick of the numbers they will have been receiving.

    Good idea to recover them if you notice they have (ahem) emerged. The Stone Clinic can analyse them and tell you what they are made of, which may be relevant to your future diet/treatment etc.

    Ken, I have never lived down what happened when I got home from hospital. SWMBO said she would make up a bed for me downstairs, but I insisted on being in our bed upstairs. Only way to get up there...

    Re: Bye bye Firefox

    Odd thing is that even though Adblock and UBlock Origin were disabled by FF, FF behaved as though they still existed and were enabled. I saw no ads whilst they were disabled. I have updated FF to the...
