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.
While at Sky Tower today, I noticed a small zip-up tool case left on
level 48, in a slightly out of the way location.
It is still sitting where I saw it.
If it's yours, but aren't sure exactly where you left it, reply to me
with a description of it, and I'll let you know exactly where it is.

This year, InTAC is being held in Wellington as part of NetHui 2013.
You can register online at http://nethui.eventbrite.co.nz.
What: InTAC (the Internet Technical Architecture Conference)
When: Monday 8 July, 2013
Where: Wellington Town Hall
Cost: Free (Registration required)
Why should I attend?
The New Zealand Internet is like a huge super tanker. The bad news is
that it takes a long time to change course if you don't like the
direction you're headed. The good news is the earlier you start making
those changes the smaller the changes need to make.
The InTAC conference will be more than just a collection of technology
presentations. This year InTAC will be a collaborative environment
designed to focus on outcomes as well as the discussions needed to
bring them about. InTAC this year will take a long term view driven by
short term actions.
The focus of the conference will be around answering the following questions:
"What do we want the New Zealand Internet to look like in 5 years?”
“What are the 5 actions the industry can perform in the next 5 months
to make that future more likely?"
Don't miss out on your chance to be part of the technical decisions
facing the direction of the New Zealand Internet for the next 5 years.
*** Helping opportunity ***
I'm also looking for people/organisations to show the attendees a
little bit about what they are doing across the next 5 years. To that
end if you want to produce me a 2 minute youtube video of any of the
following topics, I'll select some to play during the day in order to
get attendees heads into that forward looking mode:
. What you're up to which has something to do with the Internet (even
if it's just a blog to help people find lost cats)
. What you need the NZ Internet to provide you (what doesn't it do at
the moment that you need it to?)
. What you'd be able to provide others if the NZ Internet was just a
little different (If it did this, I could save more cats.)
. Anything else you think the conference might like to know/hear
For those keen to stick around for NetHui - being held 8 to 10 July in
Wellington - we encourage you to also register for this at
Looking forward to seeing you there.

I thought this is good development in the context of the discussion on
NZNOG a few months ago.

The three telecommunications companies that intend to co-invest in a
new submarine cable between New Zealand and Australia have issued a
tender for the cable’s construction.
Several international submarine cable contractors have been invited to
tender for the Tasman Global Access (TGA) Cable and all have indicated
strong interest in responding.

There seem to be a non-trivial number of open resolvers in the few NZ ASes I just checked. It would be good if there was a concerted effort into shutting them down, or otherwise neutering them so that they can't be effective amplifiers for DDoS attacks.
This is last decade's open mail relay problem, except with less spam, more packet love.

If you don't like the answers, don't query the server?

I can confirm that Mac OS X at least does this (it only queries the resolvers of your highest priority IPv4 interface as defined by the 'Set Service Order' option in the Network section of System Preferences).
No beer required for sharing this feedback ;)

Speaking from personal experience in Wellington around 2005-2006, I found
Unlimited Potential http://up.org.nz/ a great way to meet people that work
around the industry and hear what it's really like on the ground and also
what hiring managers look for in a candidate.
The most important thing I learned from this experience is not to expect
any handouts, but take comfort in the fact that most people are very
supportive and willing to hear and share ideas. The hard news to take, is
that no matter how good you are, you generally have to start somewhere
simple and prove yourself for some years. This is definitely true for
larger employers, but the more people you talk to the more opportunities
you will discover.
Feel free to message me off list with any questions, always happy to use my
experiences in helping others on a similar path.
