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);

Unfortunately I've never found access to the coding section.

Do you have ssh access to the server hosting realsurf? Do you know the database superuser account creds? Do you know the name of the database? Send those things to me in a pm and I'll do it myself.

sorry Boo, just saw this, will have a squizz soon as I can.
Would still appreciate it.
Local weather is useless, internet almost nonexistent.

Hard place to figure out most of the breaks.
Bit much swell, and bit much west. It's dropped and swung so fingers crossed for the rest of the week.

The breaks are either death on a stick, inaccessible, or not working.
Barney Duffy's is enticing but I'm buggered if I know how you get to it without a boat. It's also very close to almost dry boulders if you choose the wrong angle.

Brought a 6'4" 2+1 with long lines, a ground covering board.
Woefully undergunned for the one surf I've managed so far.

After about 15 surf checks over a week I surfed once.
Could've pushed that to 3 if I had someone to watch me, or I was less concerned about losing bark on the reef.
It was apparently one of the best weeks of weather in months.
Didn't see another surfer all week.

The fishing was ridiculous. Caught about 20 red throat emperor (basically in plague proportions) and 10 rock cod in under 3 hours.
Also a couple of scorpion fish (different species), but I didn't grab any this time.
Hooked a few kingies around 15kgs but all got eaten by sharks before I could get them on board.
The locals didn't seem to give much of a shit about sport fishing, though it was out of season.

Snorkeling was amazing, some of the best coral I've ever seen.

I couldn't live there, but Steve probably could.

Should have gone fishing. Only surfed once, but agree with the snorkeling. Magnificent. The walks and terrestrial/avian wildlife too. Majestic place

Didn't mention it before but I was there for the annual agricultural show.
They had categories like 'best 12 mulberries on a player's, 'best pair of feral chickens caught on the northern side of the island's.

The tard finalists here wouldn't even get out of the pool stages over there.
