Boring admin stuff

Posted on August 14, 2013

The web site has lately been overrun with bogus signups (six today alone), so I’ve had to disable signups and do a manual purge of the user database.

If you’re an actual person and I’ve deleted your account, I’m sorry.

In truth, there wasn’t much point in allowing folks to sign up, as we don’t typically use this site for random postings, emailings, or discussion. I’m not even sure why the spammers are doing it, because they haven’t posted anything either.

TGIF at the Shakespeare Pub

Posted on May 10, 2013

First off: Star Trek was awesome. Go see it. Preferably go see it with a cinema full of friendly bears, but whatever you do make sure you see it on the big screen. It’s very well done.

Tonight (Friday 10th May) Max and John are going to the pub, and we’re all invited! It’s just a casual Friday get together at the Shakespeare Pub, 61 Albert St, Auckland, at 6:30pm. There’s an event up on the Facebook too, if you’re following Bear New Zealand.


2014 Preliminary schedule available
