PUBLIC ADDRESS 12/11/04 - Still on the wires

Still on the wires | Nov 12, 2004 09:40
Russell Brown's Hard News

A little more comment on yesterday's broadband post: although I felt that the view advanced in Telecom's keynote presentation at the Tuanz conference - it's not the network, it's the content - ran way too close to saying "it's all your fault, you ninnies", I was at the same time...,

If you see just one movie this year.... | Nov 11, 2004 15:52
David Slack on his own account

You can generally rely on Brian Rudman to smoke out a secret and get it to hang its sorrowful head in front of us all. So what a surprise to see him baldly declare last week that he knows an especially good one and won't tell...,

Also, readers in or near Auckland may wish to note that Public Address is presenting the second Flying Nun Pub Quiz on occasion of the release of the Second Season DVD compilation, on Wednesday November 24, at the King's Arms, from 8pm. Further details are in the ad displaying on Hard News and other pages, via which you can also enter to win copies of the DVD. It will be very good fun and you should feel free to join us on the night, when the good folk of Flying Nun will be distributing some very festive prizes.

Cheers, RB.
