            Dead people?

  • Looks like we have fixed it

      • Dave

        Thats the job of the people over at the standard. That and their few readers believing the lies they write :)

  • RightOfGenghis

    Whew, I thought I’d finally scored a ban ;)

    • I suspect one or two people are currently on other blogs celebrating their “ban” as a badge of honour. Will they have the courage to come back?

      • RightOfGenghis

        Looks like I’ve got the whole damn thing to myself! LPrent, world’s finest sysop. Conspiracy?

        • LPrent actually runs this blog under the nom-de-plume of “Silent T”, but please don’t tell anyone.

    I’ve been informed that today is our wedding anniversary although I’m unsure how many years it’s been, no doubt I shall be informed at some part of the day. Guess I should take the boss out for lunch but the weather is so shitty. A great pity, Disqus lives again.

      You don’t know how long you’ve been married? Shame on you man. I was married for 4,357 years 6 months and 14 days…I’m a but fuzzy on the hours cos of daylight saving!

      • Hazards001

        Well…it seemed that long anyway!

        • Dave

          Hmmmm you normally only do 20 years for murder, with good behavior Hazards…….

    It isn’t a technical problem, we’ve just all been introduced to a political science professor who has “opened our eyes” and we’re off to Occupy Aotea Square with some grievance mongering Maoris, college useful idiots and eco-eschatologists. :-p

  • Steve (North Shore)
