Gotta be honest: I'm morbidly curious about the motivations around this particular individual's ad.

National MP Paula Bennett leaving politics

"This is me being really selfish for the first time in 15 years...". Selfish is only marginally separated from self-serving. Bennett will not free missed by a good many left leaning voters. She's an awful, duplicitous woman and I'll be glad to see her go.

Ok so tonight's challenge is playing along to an audio recording while recording the drum track onto the laptop. The laptop is the thing playing the unedited raw audio. Any tips?

@aurynn @sitharus Oooh. Huh. Ok.
Well, if you can send other NZ-based people my way I'd appreciate it.

Ok, I've had less beer than last time so let's see if I can make more sense today.
I'm following you two and want to expand my follow list but can't see your follows / followers due to being on a different instance. Is this simply because you're not following back (which is fine), or is there some config that prevents me from seeing that wider social graph?

Do people who watch rocket launches (unstaffed) kind of secretly hope the thing explodes in the same way the people watching Nascar secretly hope there's a massive crash / pile-up?

I'm watching the launch but while I used to feel excited and proud of a Kiwi start-up company's success, now that it's working with US military contracts I'm less enthused.

I have a student asking me to sponsor them for World Vision and I'm feeling a bit conflicted. IIRC World Vision have pretty questionable morals when it suits them. Has anything improved on that front?

Evergreen view that Google Docs are the absolute worst for basic formatting requirements. God it does my head in!
