Re: To Don >>>> Just A Suggestion !!!

The forums are pretty slow lately Don. Are you doing something behind the scenes to cause this? Any other websites I use are operating at normal speed. Not a problem if you are aware of it and it's because of something you're doing. I noticed some sloth this evening when I was in the admin area. An...

Re: To Don >>>> Just A Suggestion !!!

Heya Don. Realize you've been tweakin' things. But wondering why the "search active topics" function isn't operating? Cheers! Edit: just tried the " view new posts" funtion and seems to work in much the same way. But still wonder if you intended to remove the other function. Yeah, I have been makin...

Re: To Don >>>> Just A Suggestion !!!

Status update for you all. I've just spent some time consolidating various sub-forum/category areas into a shorter list. Sadly, I stuffed up at one point and inadvertently deleted all the posts that were in the health section. :oops: I'll ask Ross if we have a back up and if he can possibly restore ...

Re: To Don >>>> Just A Suggestion !!!

Just checking in quickly folks. Been on the mag all day. Same again tomorrow, but I can tell you this thread has been very helpful and I'm looking forward to having the time to sort out the issues raised and to work toward a major consolidation of sections. As usual, when I started out I didn't have...

(One of my favourite topics!) re the Rao discussion paper Here it is. http://moef.nic.in/downloads/public-information/Discussion-paper-INCCA-1-2.pdf I commend the response at the end by V.

Re: To Don >>>> Just A Suggestion !!!

Hi again Lots of good suggestions in the thread. I'm liking the consolidation idea even more. I'm still in magazine mode for another week, but I will keep an eye on this as promised. TrevG kudos for the comprehensive response. Big thanks to you and the others who've taken time to think through some ...

Re: To Don >>>> Just A Suggestion !!!

Hi all Interesting thread. FWIW, a few general thoughts. Consolidation of categories I think this is a good idea and once I get the current magazine out of the way, I shall have a go at smooshing some of the old posts into a single category. What would be extremely helpful would be some indication o...

Re: Digital SLR recommendations

If you like to shoot sports, you'll probably want to get an DSLR. Even the cheapest modern DSLRs delivery pretty solid performance. Maybe get one that comes with a couple "kit" lenses so that you have more options for shooting sports. I wouldn't worry too much about getting the ultimate quality at t...

Re: Where have the forums gone?

Hi all I just checked the link in our top menu bar on RealSurf and it linked through okay. However, the feed from the forums to the front page that shows the latest posts has broken for some reason. I think it might be to do with a security patch we installed last week, so I'll be chasing that down....

Re: Realsurf surf reports

Hi folks, I've been receiving emails to my gmail account as soon as reports are filed, so not sure what to make of the date issue. If it's a work email address then maybe your IT people can shed some light on it(?) Yep salty, to get any report emailed to you, just sign on as a user at RealSurf, then...

Re: Salty's Choice Cut Pix (southcoast reefs APR09)

Hey Salty,
If you ever want to share your work with the realsurf audience as well, just get in touch and I can give you the necessary specs, etc.

I'm intrigued about your technology, have you posted anywhere about the camera etc you're using?

Re: A "Motza" (pics)

Sigh. You think you've fixed something and then it goes and breaks again. I really appreciate the comments on the tech side. I could try hacking the code to use tables instead of divs, but that of course means more potential for me to well and truly mess things up again. Another issue I need to look...

Re: Bombora - History of Australian Surfing

Ahoy all!

Some fantastic posts in this thread, but one of my favourites so far was the one from Hatchman. I hope you don't object mate, but I decided to share it with the home page visitors today. Inspiring stuff, well written and straight from the heart.

Re: Why we surf - an attempt to articulate it in depth

Great post Zingomar! In fact, I liked it so much that I created a new category on RealSurf's home page for such contributions and posted a copy there as well (with a link back here of course!). FWIW, I reckon some surfers (like me for instance) really enjoy speculating about just what makes riding w...
