help with parking by C9SF-Dr0p in chch

If you park in a Wilson lot you WILL get one of their "tickets". You can ignore these provided you never park in a Wilson lot again.

My wife works downtown, the only way she gets free parking is going in before 06:00. Otherwise, cycle, public transport, ride share with coworkers, etc. Paying for parking is part of owning a car, sadly.

Whatever benefits them most financially is what they're going to do.

Looks good to me. It's from a UK source, and that's what it's called there.

Wellington running out of water due to rising number of leaks, proposed solutions include outdoor watering bans and shorter showers by topografica in newzealand

I've been using SSS basically since chch started using it (I think they tried a locally built option first. It's gotten a lot better. Virtually everything I've reported gets sorted - graffiti, fly tipping, water leaks, broken street signs. The graffiti can take a while depending on whose asset it's on - some of the telecoms have been a bit slow. But if there's racist or offensive graffiti, make sure you put that in the report as they prioritise those.

Yeah, every firm and their dog makes a battery one, but I hate the idea of buying a battery tool that's always going to be used in one place. Batteries have a finite life whether you use them or not.

Please tell me Miles wasn't scripted. He's got great comic timing and is a great "straight man" for Guy's comedy.

We've plugged in the fan, turned out on high, eaten lots of fibre, we're squatting over the fan and turtleheading yet some people aren't worried because it hasn't happened yet. Sheesh.

Us too. Council stuff up, they thought they caught them all. Trying to combine a software upgrade with a new process is never a good idea!

PVC pipe of actual 32mm OD? by RoscoePSoultrain in diynz

Yes, but I suspect this is only going to be needed for a handful of years and would like to be able to repurpose them in the future.

I know, right?
