    Re: Interesting, car powered by air

    and much the same with some of the EV's. people who invested early on have been beating the drums lately to create interest so they could offload their shares before the company tanks.

    Re: New Heat Pump - Funding

    do you mean ducted heat pump or just one in the lounge?

    if its built to current code, insulation wise there is probably not that much difference from what yours is now. unfortunately the new...

    Re: Interesting, car powered by air

    the simple problem is that compressed air is extremely inefficient to produce.
    on a typical commercial compressed air system you only a get about 4% of the energy actually used for work. even if you...

    with small bedrooms no matter where you put it its going to be blowing over you to a degree. one of the reasons i much prefer the smallest heatpump as the fans flow a lot less and lower noise....

    its a combination of that many people, dare i say most kiwis, do not heat their houses properly. common issue is not running the heat pump long enough. you heat the air to heat the house and the...

    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...

    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.

  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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...
  22. 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...

  24. 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...
  25. 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...
