Latest I've heard, 3079 inspections of privately owned buildings were conducted following the two recent big 'quakes, 1460 have been declared suitable for use, 1441 cannot be used before repair and 178 declared for demolition.


Mains water supply in Sami will be off *tomorrow* from morning to end of working day to enable maintenance work to the system.

The UK government is paying Microsoft £5.5m of taxpayers' money to extend support for the out-of-date Windows XP operating system

Microsoft first announced the end-of-support date for Windows XP in 2007, so the government has had around seven years to prepare for the deadline. The company’s list price for one year’s custom Windows XP support is $200 per desktop, suggesting that there are over 200,000 computers in the public sector still running Windows XP.

Currently, 85 per cent of NHS computers run on Windows XP, as well as 95 per cent of the world's ATM machines.
