I promise I will write a review of the event soon! I’m a tad buzy preparing for SPP tomorrow and other things.

Here is Rachel’s review »
Here are some photos (click to enlarge and see a description):

TVNZ 6 Launches!

30 Sep

TVNZ 6 has now launched – it’s on channel 25!
Soon I’ll write about the events I went to and post some photos – but until then, here’s the countdown, which was seen on TV:

Thanks to Rachel from Throng, here is a clip of the countdown at the launch:

On the way to Auckland, I pointed a burnt out house to dad. Police swarmed the area and police-tape was cornering off the property.
I’ll write more later – but here’s more info:

A man whose body was found after a house fire in Ngaruawahia early this morning was apparently dead before the blaze.

Sixteen police officers are now working on a homicide investigation after post mortem results showed the man had sustained injuries during an assault, prior to his death.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Nicholls would not elaborate on the injuries and the man has yet to be identified.

Here is another photo from the set. I’m putting it up now because the painting in it was revealed last night.

The Dash!

26 Sep

You may remember my post awhile ago about “The Dashboard”, a nifty feature that allowed you to log into WordPress and start commenting on this blog.
I didn’t like that module because the only feature you would use is the login/log out feature. The links to RSS and WordPress seemed unnecessary to me. I couldn’t personalize it either, which really bothered me yet I liked the idea of a ‘dash’ on my site.

So I decided that I was going to build my own module (so to speak) and I’ve done it!
It doesn’t have the technology of the old one (login link changing to logout link) but I think it’s better all the same.
The top has “All Members”, features that all visitors, anonymous and members can use. There is the cool “random” feature, which takes you to a random post somewhere on Whaiora Ignition.
There is also a link to my RSS feed, and a link so visitors can sign up for their own account to comment.
Members have the choices of logging in, logging out and accessing their dashboard (not to be confused with this new “dash” feature).

I’m really proud of “the dash” and I hope I will be able to add more features in the future! I don’t think there is anything else like it out there that is user made. Please check it out and send me a message!

P.S: It is currently at the bottom of the sidebar as it is in BETA.

TVNZ 6 Launch

24 Sep

I wasn’t expecting a invite, but I got one today!
TVNZ have invited me to the TVNZ 6 launch this Sunday, at 9am. I will definitely be going, and I’ll be able to catch up with Rachel from Throng, and hopefully Rick Ellis and Jason Paris from TVNZ. I’ll write about the ‘event’ on Throng, and here when I return.

I don’t know if this will mend the bridges, but hey – they still invited me!
This will mix in well with my work experience at South Pacific Pictures, starting the day after.
