Telecom New Zealand | Nokia 2125 CDMA to Android

This is a six month project – I’m in no rush. I got my first mobile phone in 1991 and have had 6 or 7 since. Uniden, Motorola, Samsung, Nokia, GTran & etc. I’ve managed to break one – the rest have lasted the distance. My current is a Nokia 2125 CDMA; my favourite and the most long lasting – 4 years?

Safari browsing

Apologies to Safari users who’ve been unable to my view recent video embeds. I think I’ve solved the problem – though can’t work out why it should have been happening. Is it an address thing (michaeljeans.co.nz v http://www.michaeljeans.co.nz)?  I don’t think so –  any ideas? It is definitely an issue at the Vimeo server end – I have over ridden the embed at this / these domain(s) only with a global setting for the time being – beyond that I’m a bit lost.
