Nah. I wouldn't even consider lord howe or norfolk. A good photographer friend has a stack of stories about trips there.

It's more about finding a spot away from the crowds.

Bit different when you're a surf photog travelling with pro surfers Braithy.

I've got a mate who lives on Lord Howe. His wife is a ranger there, he's an artist.

Sounds like heaven on earth to me, as long as you stay away from the wife swapping parties.

Heading there tomorrow. Anyone want to hazard a surf forecast?
BOM marine forecast is a bit vague, figuring out what board to take.

How come legions posts were deleted?
Legion goes back periodically and deletes all his posts.
Think someone picked him from his posts on here once.

Has legion not learnt you can delete your post fully without just replacing it with dots?

I can't test this because I know I can with admin rights but I'm sure others have commented before that they can't (after a reply has been posted or after a certain time - maybe 5 minutes?).

No you can't. You only can on some posts, about 2%. And even that seems like a bug. If they are recent you usually can but older posts the delete button is disabled.

What Legion would rather do is have Oberführer Trev let him have access to the database and run something like

Code: Select all

BEGIN TRANSACTION;
UPDATE tangents SET content = '...' WHERE poster = 'Legion' AND last_post_time < current_timestamp() - interval '60 days';
COMMIT;
because that would take milliseconds compared to the hours Legion wastes when spring cleaning manually.

In fact, from https://wiki.phpbb.com/Table.phpbb_posts, it would just be:

Code: Select all

UPDATE posts SET post_text = '...' WHERE post_username = 'Legion' AND post_time BEFORE DATE_ADD(CURRENT_DATE(), INTERVAL -2 MONTH);
