    Re: I have no use for a cave man language

    Re: I have no use for a cave man language

    The title of your post suggests that one way to solve your problem might be to re-calibrate the way you see the world and how other people live.

  4. Re: The plane on an opposing conveyor belt debate. Surely not?

    O gawd! Not this one again...
    The link in the OP post doesn't work so I can't see the video, but it sounds like the old 'plane on the conveyor belt' again.

    Re: Earthquake

    Slept through it here in Wellington, but in the morning noticed several pictures on the walls were skew.

    Re: Maybe We Are Being Forced to .....

    Nice to see xenophobia still alive and well in Aotearoa (spelling checker doesn't like that).

  8. Re: Suggestions for Photoediting Software or subscriptions

    Off the top of my head, there's Gimp - never used it much but many find it good, and it's free.

    After that you start to spend. ON1 Photo Raw costs $NZ166 at the moment (special Christmas price)....
  9. Re: Here's a way to have a New Years party with a difference

    Just when 2020 looked like a complete write-off, the Boston Dynamics robots saved the day!

    The tune sounds a bit like one they taught us at primary school.

    Re: Thunder Bird Email problems

    That's a bit hair-raising. I have been using Thunderbird for years without any problems (other than those of my own making). I am now on 78.5.1 and I thought the .1 update followed the .0 rather...

    Very likely all those were contributing factors. The situation in NY as reported in the news was clearly bad but it is still a shock to put numbers to it.
