It is also looking possible I will be working on a music industry project in Auckland – more about that as information comes to hand.

Free to good (or in fact, any) home – old and working inkjet printer

Canon BJC6000. Old and has so seen better days, but still working no probs. Plus it has a very interesting Temple history. I also probably can find the manual for it as well

I’m only ditching it because it doesn’t have a USB connection, so doesn’t work with my new computer.

The red cartridge has run out, but the others are all about ½ full.

Will need to be picked up from Devonport sometime before xmas.

Flick me an email if you want it

We would love to hear from you.

Wanted!! Lead Vocalist, Bass Player & Guitarist Wanted to join Guitarist and Drummer in joining us form a Hard Rock / Rock n Roll 'originals' band with big hooks, mean solo's, anthemic chorus's.

We feel that NZ music is in a sad state with barely any decent rockin' bands that play good Rock N Roll / hard Rock. Everything seems like Metal / Hardcore / Punk / Emo / Indie etc, and not enough balls to the wall ROCK. Its a sad state pretty much and we hope to do something about it...

We also both play in an 80s Rock 'tribute' / covers band 'Maskara' - which plays the likes of Skid Row, The Cult, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Kiss, Guns n Roses, Cinderella, Alice Cooper - all of which we love and are inspired by.

We do love the Straight-ahead hard rock elements from the late 80's to 90's rock, but also want to modernise that sound and jam up our own vibe as well as a bit of Stoner Rock and the Blues thrown in the mix...

We love the above bands, as well as bands like Motorhead, Silvertide, Wednesday 13, Airbourne, Fu Manchu, Nashville Pussy etc....

Must be in your 20's , have good gear, has transport, committed, experienced, professional , and easy to be in a band with! Along with being reliable and dependable - as alot of musicians are'nt!

Mostly practice Sundays, and Thursday / Wednesday nights. Based out Pakuranga way.

For more information or if you want to jam, email us on Info(at)

Teachers working as assessment administrators are engaged by the project for 6 weeks, which includes attendance at a one week national training workshop in Wellington followed by 5 weeks of visiting schools to administer assessment tasks. Teachers work in pairs and, in some regions, will need to be away from home for some of the assessment weeks. Preference will be given to those who have teaching experience at the Y4–8 levels, and who have interests in the curriculum areas being assessed. Teachers working with Y8 students will be required for uninterrupted engagement during the period 18 August–26 September; teachers working with Y4 students during the period 13 October–21 November 2008.
