And I said, what about, breakfast at Tiffany's Point Halswell Lighthouse, Miramar this morning?
Wellington from its best side.

Conclusion: it's worse than that. As in 'real bad'.

Oh this surely must've been recorded over the last week and not some old drama series?!
Scarily accurate.

Eehhmm this just landed in #wellington. Is it a Boeing 777? Who flies that, US air force?
It's big, all grey, no winglets, relatively small engines and no trace on flight radar.

It was probably about time to change passwords anyway...
Login details for over 272 million Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo accounts are being traded by Russian cybercriminals, it has been revealed.

+Steve Mays At least one possibility is from another site that allowed leaking of the password database. If the username is the email address and if the password on this site was the same as the email password, you have the credentials (unless two factor authentication is enabled). There have been a few cases of web services losing their password database to the wild.

So if everything always works on an #iPhone why can't I just watch this video?

mp4 usually works out of the box on iTunes though since mp4 is mp4 is just a container it may be the used video codec in this case may not be supported.

This is not to say that I endorse, or agree with, GM as an automobile manufacturer, but Eero Saarinen and Richard Kelly's Design Dome is one of the most striking examples of how architectural lighting design.

Click through for eye candy.

I don't always post selfies.
But when I do, I do it in style.

The Window for Avoiding a Dangerous Climate Change Has Closed
"Barring some incredible new carbon capture technology, the window for limiting global warming to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius appears to have closed. That’s the stark conclusion of a report out in Nature today, which finds that the carbon reductions pledges penned into the Paris Agreement are ridiculously inadequate for keeping our climate within a safe and stable boundary."

This morning I was grumpy and in a really bad mood. That's no longer the case, because #Wellington.

Architecture quote of the day:
Line things up. Seriously, just line things up.
http://blog.buildllc.com/2012/05/the-secrets-of-modernism/
You'd think with the amount of time we architects spend in school, all the esoteric titles on our book-shelves, and the cryptic language we use amongst one another at dinner parties that the keys to understanding modernism would be complicated, scholarly and difficult to comprehend.

I understand what you mean +Maximilian Montserrat , it's very similar to Dieter Rams' 10 design rules. However easy as the rules are, they can be difficult to follow, simplicity is hard! The cleaner your outcome - the more obvious the mistakes.

One of few places I've walked out of, still hungry and with a lost face. I had two business visitors from West Island and wanted to show them a part of Welly's excellent F&B scene. With more beers on tap and a regular Tuesday night, what could possibly go wrong. After 15 minutes of waiting we managed to get a menu but not even a glass of water. Staff saw us over and over but never made an effort to actually approach us. The place was not overly busy and there were plenty of staff. After at least 10 minutes of additional waiting to order we made the decision to get some food -elsewhere. There are so many fantastic places in wellington, I won't waste my time here again, sorry.

Total surprise walking up a random dark staircase to be met by exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable staff who are happy to cook up a special concoction to your liking. Otherwise try their unique mixes like chocolate and blue cheese cocktail.
