@virgil Auckland Islands would be better, probably so daft shes thinks they are near Auckland!
She’d want to see the tendering process to ship her off.
Here’s a good breakdown of her crusade. I doubt the council didn’t inform her before the press , if she wasn’t such an awful person she would have been able to actually get some support for her cause instead she’s been an obnoxious nutter. She regularly shows up in the kiwiblog comments trying to play down Muslim terrorism and promote hard left batshittery.
@no-quarter According to NZTA its achieving its objective. Every time I drive that section I make sure I'm in the right lane way ahead of time and just stay in it thus avoiding all the retards with their last minute jockeying as it enters the CMJ.
Plenty of fines being dished out so it seems it is being policed. Your comment about lane changing doesn't really ring true to me as you can have exactly the same issues on the 100km sections too - with the dickwads who want to do 120 because that will get them to their destination 0.73 seconds quicker.
You get it less in the 100kms stretches, as most people doing more then that are in the right lane already. It's quite a messy stretch of road, you may be right the speed limit might not change much.
I take the ports exit so have no choice but to change lanes quite late in the piece unless I want to sit in the far right lane with some dickhead trying to do 120 up my arse the whole way.
Watched “American Made” (2017) starring Tom Cruise as Barry Seal and his cocaine runs from Medillin to Mena, Arkansas. Really enjoyed the film, especially the small allusions to then-AG/Gov Bill Clinton springing him from jail.
well they were talking to Jacinda about that this morning and I wasnt paying that much attention (cos there was more pregnancy talk) but the gist I got was there was some legislation that had to be rushed through for them to do the launches, but is further stuff that is needed going forward...not to mention the sign off required to put something into space from the Universe Police, USA
How many people out there can name another Motorhead song other than 'Ace of Spades' ? ( no Google )
For some reason they're mentioned alongside Sabbath, ACDC, Zep, Gunners etc when they don't really have any right to be.
Its more their influence on heavy metal , than their actual album sales I think.

Bomber- legend has it they played in Germany and they had a bomber as a prop hanging from the ceiling and Lemmy says to the crowd "haven't seen one of these in a while have you?' . Hope its true
Fair call. I'm a massive music fan and I think their aura exceeds what they actually did which isn't always a bad thing. Every group I mentioned has that one song they're famous for but loads of others. Tough to think of the others with MH
The design of big battery lends itself to the frequency control market - energy networks run at a certain frequency, and if it goes too high or low you risk shutdown as equipment and generators exit, to protect themselves. This could lead to a System Black, where assets on the grid progressively shut down as bad frequencies trip their circuits.
When our older coal units start tripping in the heat, other generators have to jump in. Sometimes these are spinning reserve - big coal generators that are contracted to connect in a contracted time. But increasingly this could be battery power, as it is better suited to sub-second response time.
This is particularly important when understanding that demand forecasting is less accurate than e.g. wind energy forecasting. Predicting user habits is difficult!
