wondering if anyone from TVNZ On Demand is on this list and wouldn't
mind contacting me offlist regarding problems streaming if a user has an
IPv6 address. The helpdesk doesn't appear to know what ipv6 is so
thought I'd try an alternative.
This email is to inform you of the NLNZ intent to undertake its 3rd Whole of Domain Web Harvest.
The planned dates for this exercise are the 4th to the 22nd of February 2013.
The harvest will be undertaken by the Internet Archive<http://archive.org/index.php> on our behalf,
More details can be found on the web harvest website: http://natlib.govt.nz/publishers-and-authors/web-harvesting/2013-nz-web-har…
If anyone has any specific concerns, requests or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly: jay.gattuso(a)dia.govt.nz<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> or via the project email address: Web.Archive(a)dia.govt.nz<mailto:Web.Archive@dia.govt.nz?Subject=About%20the%202013%20Web%20Harvest>
If anyone wants to discuss this further on the mailing list I am happy to do so.

So the OpenFlow router has been up for a wee white now so it seemed
about time to let you all poke at it.
Phase 2 of the project is to:
Deploy an OF switch on an exchange point which can function as a route server.
This switch should be able to BGP peer with any peers which currently
use the exchange and allow for the exchange of IPv4 prefixes as
I've used the information on the WIX Peer list webpage
(http://wix.nzix.net/peers.html) to pre-configure passive BGP
peering sessions for all existing WIX participants.
So feel free to use your existing WIX IP addresses and AS numbers to connect to
Things to look for:
1) It should pass you the routes that it learns from the route
servers with the Flatnet AS in the path but with the original next
hops. This longer path should mean that you won't explicitly prefer
the routes from me. Bit of safety there.
2) It will pass you any other routes that people pass me directly.
As I mentioned before we've got a few more plans. The next phase will
start to take us a bit beyond what the current exchanges offer.
In the new year we are going to deploy a similar switch at the APE.
This hardware will become part of the single SDN controlled switch
that we currently have in Wellington.
When you peer with the OpenFlow switch at the WIX you'll get APE
prefixes as well. Peer at the APE, you'll get WIX prefixes.
Once we can get some traffic on the fabric and a presence at multiple
places then we can really start to innovate.
. BGP prefix communities based on the millisecond difference between
your peering port and the prefix next hop
. BGP aware RPF on the exchange (solves the pointing default problem)
Got any other ideas. Throw them in the mix and we'll see what we can do.
Have a Merry Christmas everyone.
 Passive means that I'll never reach out and initiate a session
with you. You need to initiate the session with me. Just safer
incase people think that I'm TCP Port 179 hax0r-ing them.
Would there be any list members inside Media works by any chance, or would
someone have a contact who I can speak to?
I seem to be having an issue with TV3 ondemand on our network - the preroll
plays but the programme itself does not.
Anyone that replies when I click "report issue" doesn't seem to be of any
We have our own ip assignments from apnic. Maxmind and other such
geolocation databases are indeed showing Napier as the location though this
took 3 months when we got them a year ago.
I was thinking it could possibly be an issue inside our main router with the
RTMP protocol but I have proved it isnt.
- When I go to http://nzcontent.mediaworks.co.nz I can play the
http demo stream, but not the rtmp stream
- When I go to http://www.etvlive.gov.et/ I can play both the http
and the rtmp stream. This is just some overseas organisation who has a web
facing adobe media server similar to tv3's
So next I thought there could possibly be a firewall or protocol block of
some sort - I can telnet into nzcontent.mediaworks.co.nz on port 1935
without an issue.
Its been bugging me since we changed over to our own block of ip addresses
with the occasional subscriber complaint about the tv3 service.
So anyone you can refer me to inside TV3/mediaworks that can help (beyond
the tier1 helpdesk monkeys) would be much appreciated.
So I arrive in Queenstown, go to Dick Smith, and pick up 2 TelecomXT Sims
and a 2Degrees Sim. Also bought $270 worth of recharge vouchers.
Telecom XT wasn't too much of a problem... ring up a number and recharge
the sims.... worked fine.
2Degres. Useless bloody idiots who if I had the time I would lodge a
complaint with whatever authority there was in NZ for doing do.
So, got their Nano Sim, put it in the iPad Mini... and nothing. Says it
sees the 2Degrees towers... but nothing. Won't activate.
Call them, they say I need to put it in a phone with Nano slot (iPhone5) to
activate... I didn't bother bringing the 5 because I had the Mini.
Called last night, they took details, said to call back in the morning.
I called this morning, waited an hour for these idiots to figure out why I
or they couldn't activate it... and even got the comment when I said that
if they are selling these for iPad Mini's and there is no way to activated
they said 'Seems a bit stupid doesnt it'.
They said someone would call me back... they didnt.
I called back tonight, chick read through all the notes... says she
couldn't do anything and the escalation meant I would receive a call back
by the 21st of December.
WTF?! These people are totally useless.
Now the chick is telling me that Dick Smith 'should have' known.... really?
Dick Smith said they have no idea and get no training whatsoever from
2Degrees, or any of the sims they sell.
So my two Telecom XT work fine, but still needed a call to activate then...
but 2Degrees is the biggest joke ever. They have no details, instructions
or ANYTHING at all about activating sims on iPad's or iPad Mini's.
They had the nerve to say I should go back to Dick Smith and get them to
activate it... but didn't want to pay the $60 in taxi fare.
If anyone knows anyone up there, feel free to forward them my email to
them. This is the worst customer experience ever and I will be telling
everyone I know not to use them.

Down here it seems that Vodafone is the fastest and ha good reliability
(little overloading and good consistency), however doesn't have the best
Telecom XT has better coverage but speed and reliability isn't as good.
Vodafone may be your best bet. It deems to be consistent enough throughout
Qtown, Dunedin & Invercargill (am doing work from those centres with
Vodafone on and off often).

"Pathetic" is a good description of the major carriers.
Telecom do a 4GByte plan and in December seem to do a 2 for 1 deal.
We get 8GB per stick from them
Vodafone seem to think 4Gbyte is awesome.
We carry a "reverse cell-site" that has sicks on both carriers. It
uses external aerials to get that little bit extra. I used it in
Wanaka in Jan just before NZNOG and Telecom wasn't too bad.
Vodafone looked like it had good download, but it was only in short
burst stuff. Sustained thru put was mediocre.
We used satellite for the job. The 3G rig was just for us at the motel
FYI - identical USB sticks sitting side by side have different
performance figures. They're really made for metro areas with
"immersive" coverage and in areas with less coverage performance is a struggle.
For the Wanaka job, the producer is talking about using a bonded 3G
rig to replace microwave link from chopper. It will be interesting.

Advisory ? D-root is changing its IPv4 address on the 3rd of January.
This is advance notice that there is a scheduled change to the IPv4
address for one of the authorities listed for the DNS root zone and
the .ARPA TLD. The change is to D.ROOT-SERVERS.NET, which is
administered by the University of Maryland.
The new IPv4 address for this authority is 18.104.22.168
The current IPv6 address for this authority is 2001:500:2d::d and it
will continue to remain unchanged.
This change is anticipated to be implemented in the root zone on 3
January 2013, however the new address is currently operational. It
will replace the previous IP address of 22.214.171.124 (also once known
We encourage operators of DNS infrastructure to update any references
to the old IP address, and replace it with the new address. In
particular, many DNS resolvers have a DNS root ?hints? file. This
should be updated with the new IP address.
New hints files will be available at the following URLs once the
change has been formally executed:
The old address will continue to work for at least six months after
the transition, but will ultimately be retired from service.
