  • Brogrammers in the Wild | James Purser
    read the comments on an article but I recommend you read these if you want to see the brogrammer in the wild If you don t want to dig through the dross the article itself is about Etsy that craft site that allows you to sell you crafty items offering 5000 grants to women who might want to be involved in the Hacker School programme but can t afford to Now it s probably fair to say that a large portion of Etsy visitors are women so this isn t exactly something out of the ordinary however it very quickly attracted the comments of those who view any attempt to help women as putting men down and upsetting the natural balance of the sexes I d just like to say two things To those bitching about women or other minority groups getting assistance moving into industries that have been difficult to get into grow a pair Stop your whinging welcome the diversity and move on If this threatens you it says more about you than it says about the world in general I d love to see the time when there is no need for people to be incentivised to

  • Wireless doesn't mean the death of the NBN | James Purser
    tablets Look let me use our home as an example We have a number of different devices that use wireless 1 x iPad 1 1 x Xoom 1 x Nexus S smartphone 1 x Huwei Android Phone smartphone 1 x iPod 3 The two tablets and the iPod are wireless only while the two smartphones are mobile data capable I have data on the nexus S while the Huwei doesn t When they re in the house all of those devices run off the wireless which relies entirely on the ADSL2 connection currently running at 5MBit s They do this because frankly mobile data just isn t good enough to handle the sort of demands that we put on it Now we re probably not a typical family we tend to be early adopters and are heavy internet users we re definitely moving towards the interwebs as our primary source of entertainment however I think our use case is going to be more representative of the future than a mobile only existance The other thing is that wireless is different to mobile Wireless in this context is generally supported by fixed internet especially in the home or workplace The NBN

  • Clover Bad, Joanna Good? | James Purser
    to justify why it s a bad thing for state mps to be councillors but it s perfectly okay for federal mps The latest reasoning that I ve heard is that there might be some sort of constitutional issue preventing the state from legislating federal mps however the only constitutional issue I can find is clause 4 of section 44 of the federal constitution that states Anyone who holds any office of profit under the Crown or any pension payable during the pleasure of the Crown out of any of the revenues of the Commonwealth Is ineligable to hold federal office However there is a bit of conjecture as to whether Local Government Councillors hold an office of profit under the Crown I ve had a look in the NSW constitution and Section 51 is the bit that deals with Local Government and there is nothing in there that would prevent the State Government from banning federal mps from holding Councillor positions In fact clause 2 explicitly states that The manner in which local government bodies are constituted and the nature and extent of their powers authorities duties and functions shall be as determined by or in accordance with laws of the Legislature Which to my non lawyerly mind pretty much says the State legislature can do what they want with local government It s this clause that forms the foundation for much of the power that the State has over the Local Government sector Anyway the legislation is passed and Clover has already stated that she s going to be leaving Parliament in favour of remaining the Mayor of the City of Sydney I m not really sure what the Coalition thinks it s won with this but there ya go Blog Catagories Politics local government nsw James Purser
