  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Spark (the NZ legacy telecom) has enabled wireless hotspots at many of their callboxs. The 1GB/day that monthly account holders on their mobile network can access is a point of difference....
  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    Well a sheep went flying in Bad Taste. You know, after the RPG hit it....
  • Commented on Busy busy busy
    A friend-of-a-friend was mistaken for one of many Asian students in NZ "How long have you been in New Zealand?" Descendant of goldfield worker replied "Four generations"....
  • Commented on Don't blow your top!
    That photo is more understandable when you see it on a large enough screen to realise that the white bits are snow, not waterfalls!...
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    After conversion to ePub, my Amazon-bought copy acts as the Moon+ Reader Android app is designed too: single-tap takes you to the endnotes, with a link back, while long-tap brings the note up in a pop-up window....
  • Commented on Silence this week ...
    As is the RN's eagerness to acquire four-engined long-range heavy bombers as early as 1914 -- the Bloody Paralyser. I was expecting this to be a link to the book of that name that has just come out!...
  • Commented on Fantasy shibboleths
    Here's the thank you note from NZ http://nzetc.victoria.ac.nz/tm/scholarly/tei-WH2-1Doc-c18-55.html {The NZ PM was in Egypt during the Battle of Crete} The acting Prime Minister of New Zealand to Admiral Cunningham, Commander-in-Chief, Mediterranean Fleet (Alexandria) 2 June 1941 We have been told...
  • Commented on Tanks! Why tank stories make great tech myths
    And the fix is in for the UK MPA, there are exchange officers flying the P-8. There are exchange officers flying MPAs from several allied countries, look up Project Seedcorn. Flying the P-8 is not evidence of a 'fix'....
  • Commented on Why we're not going to see sub-orbital airliners
    The main reason that the airliner producer's order books are full (and production rates planned to increase, maybe that has changed in the last couple of months) is that we concurrently have high fuel prices and low interest rates. As...
  • Commented on Why we're not going to see sub-orbital airliners
    (Urban electric taxis, with ranks where they can do opportunistic charging and with relatively low speeds are perhaps the best candidates for that.) And high gains from regenerative braking?...
  • Commented on Why we're not going to see sub-orbital airliners
    It's quite sad when 'plane landed safely with no problems (other than an _indication_ of losing a primary system which has multiple redundancies/backups)' becomes 'passengers feared for their lives!!!'. Pilots routinely make live-saving decisions about stuff like weather avoidance, as...
  • Commented on Why we're not going to see sub-orbital airliners
    And if you spend a lot of defence budget in one place, it is harder to maintain other capabilities e.g. Maritime Patrol Aircraft. Apparently the UK govt has requested allies' assistance again since the Nov/Dec episode. http://aviationweek.com/defense/canadians-french-us-hunt-submarine-scotland...
  • Commented on A message from our sponsors
    As much as I enjoyed PJ's early work, there will be no further distractions placed between him and getting on with Dambusters! None! Away with you!...
