Re: The Floods

Yeah, that's what I'm saying, MKM. Because you can cut it so many ways, everyone should pay.

I'd suggest you were contradicting yourself, but I'm too tired, it's late and I have to go to work tomorrow, so I'm gonna eat ice-cream and watch crap tele.

Re: The Floods

[. Honestly, of the hundreds of comments on a SMH article last week, only a handful were in favour of the levy. Those that weren't, displayed such loathing and disgust for the Government that you'd think they were being asked to fund a military takeover of some island inhabited by tiny rabbit peopl...

Re: The Floods

AJ I think your last line negates your preceding argument. The fact is, people are opposed to being forced to contribute to infrastructure replacement, not donating to help victims. Trev, I'm a little slow in this heat: how did I invalidate my own comments? The way I see it, replacing infrastructur...

Right, so according to you, anyone who supports the levy, ergo helping the victims of the flood, is a Labor voter? That right? Fella, you must belong to Mensa with logic like that.

Re: The Floods

The fact that the majority of Australians are not only opposed to a flood levy, but down right hostile towards it - even going so far as saying that they'll never give to a charity again (???) - just goes to show that the idea of mateship and egalitarianism in Australia is a myth. We are not the peo...

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

They were asked to stay out of the bodyboarders section repeatedly. they kept coming in and breaking the rules. I've never read the rules of forums, so I thought I better have a look in case I was inadvertently breaking them. Here's the thing, I couldn't find them. I found stuff on posting pictures...

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

More should be done from members to keep new guys like Skipp to stay on the boards. If you want to encourage new members, old members need to be more proactive in responding to their initial posts. More often than not, a newbie posts and the silence is deafening - but we all know that the post is b...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I took a flex. The kids were in childcare and the car had new shocks. So I went hunting because the Bra has shit banks. Got to Newport. Drove back and settled on a not too bad looking bank at the south end of Bungan. Fark me, it's been a long time since I did that walk. I faffed around so long looki...

Re: The Floods

Dear Lard Lad and Still Here, Years ago, David Suzuki wrote a book, with Holly Dressel, called Good News for a Change . He made the point that we live in a biosphere and that the resources within that biosphere are finite. Yet, economists only ever speak of growth. Well, I hate to burst your bubble,...

Re: Coastalwatch webcam upgrade to Flash

Load up the page even though you'll only get the big black box. Then right click and select settings - not global settings. At the bottom of the box you'll see 5 tabs - the first is the display tab. You should see the Enable hardware acceleration checkbox - uncheck it. You won't find the settings un...

Re: Surfing keen to learn

Surfing's a bit like learning a language - the younger you are, the easier, and more naturally, it comes. I learnt as a kid, so don't really remember the process. As a kid, you're not goal focused; you're simply in the moment and have as much fun failing as succeeding. As an adult, you see people li...

Went into Flash settings and, under the Display tab, unchecked the Enable hardware acceleration checkbox.
