Transmission Gully

The Transmission Gully project is a Public-Private Partnership project to build a 27-km four-lane (two in each direction) motorway from MacKays to Linden (through Transmission Gully). There will be interchanges connecting the route to MacKays, State Highway 58, eastern Porirua and Kenepuru. The link to eastern Porirua will provide connecting roads to Whitby and Waitangirua. The Porirua City Council will be the authority responsible for those connecting roads.

A superb video presentation giving a flyover perspective has been produced and may be viewed here. This shows the use of computer graphic technology beautifully.

Obituary of Brian Thomas

Sadly, Brian Thomas passed away on 14 January 2014.

Brian’s contribution to SeniorNet is immeasurable. He has been a Committee Member, part of the Technical Team, Tutor, Deputy Chairman and Chairman. He was responsible for the creation and maintenance of our database, and involved in writing and editing course manuals. In undertaking these tasks he gave innumerable hours to SeniorNet.

Brian joined us as a Founding Member in 1998 and was invited to act as part of the Technical Team. At that time our equipment consisted of some second hand computers donated by Telecom. The Technical Team took on the demanding task of ensuring this equipment was suitable to enable presentation of basic courses in computing. As time progressed and we acquired newer equipment the Technical Team’s expertise remained a vital part of our operations. Brian continued as an integral part of the Technical Team until his death.

Paying for a Computer is Just The Start!

Note:- Prices quoted are indicative from Noel Leeming who give SeniorNetters a discount.

Buying a computer is like buying a car. You then have to buy petrol to make it go.

Initially you have three purchase options:

  1. One of Apple Mac’s models, or

  2. One from a large number of manufacturers made to run Microsoft. (People who have changed from Microsoft to Apple say they’d never change back! Unfortunately Apple is more expensive.)

  3. Buy (or obtain) a computer without an operating system, and installing a free operating system (Linux)

The difference between them is different ‘operating systems’ (a bit like one being petrol, another electric and the other diesel).
