Further to previous emails (6th Nov 2015), we are all set to kick off the web harvest in the new year.
We’ll be starting the crawl on the 11th Jan 2016, and expect to be crawling for approximately 3 to 4 weeks.
The crawlers will be using the user agent string ““NLNZ_IAHarvester2016” so if you do need to set any specific rules for our crawlers this would be the identifier to use.
The robots.txt and Robots META tag exclusions on crawled sites will be obeyed with some minor exceptions:-
We’ll strictly obey all rules that relate to the user agent (apart from slash pages, which will be harvested regardless).
Facebook and some other curated social media sites will be harvested regardless of their Robots.txt.
The Crawl Notification (Notice to Webmasters) page is located at on the Library’s web site at: http://natlib.govt.nz/publishers-and-authors/web-harvesting/domain-harvest.
If you have any questions or concerns about the harvest, please drop me a line. I’ll watch for email at various points over the Christmas break, and back in the office on the 4th Jan to address any questions/concerns.

Hi guys and mostly the NZNOG trustees (whoever they are at the moment.)
I remember seeing a while back that some funds were going to be made
available for helping people fund the cost of attending Apricot (since it's
taking the place of the 2016 conference.)
Did anything ever eventuate out of this? The cost for Apricot is
significantly higher than the usual nznog cost plus hotels etc if you're
not from Auckland. Would be good to see some clarity on this given that
early bird tickets are now closed and not everyone has a corporate to fund
Even if its a "its not happening" comment that would be still helpful.
Alternately have the trustees talked to the Apricot organisers at all about
Kia ora NZNOG-ers,

For a better world through a better Internet
the stats overwhelmingly come from HTML5 advert placements in google, which
predominantly but not solely are placed over youtube videos.
Approximately 5-6m placements per day.

Riding on the coat tails of the Stuff IPv6 post (which is really cool btw!).
Over the last few weeks we have been rolling out Ipv6 dual stack on the Orcon customer base. We targeted this brand as the CPE's we give to customers has support for IPv6. (Some modems require firmware upgrades which we are pushing out). If this goes well for us, we will review Ipv6 for the other brands in the new year.
Currently just supporting ipv6 on the xDSL product range, with UFB coming in the new year.
Seeing some really good stats coming through on the APNIC Ipv6 Stats page (http://stats.labs.apnic.net/ipv6/AS17746) - The 1 month view shows the best trend. Still very early days and I expect to see that number grow as CPE firmware gets pushed out and customers reconnect to get their IPV6 PD.
Feedback from customers has been positive :D
Any questions please drop me a line
