  1. Well, that is certainly............ bright! Great work the two of you. Keep it up, it's great to see a good mentoring relationship working so well.
  2. This is some great work Larry. As a computer engineer (yes I could follow all the specs of the computer itself), I'm pleased to see someone still doing case mods. I've never attempted it myself, although I have thought about it, so maybe this will be the inspiration I need to try one day. Thanks for sharing, looking forward to seeing more.
  3. At least you aren't stuck with all caps - nobody likes shouting!!!
  4. Just came back from a week and a half in New Zealand visiting the family (out-laws as well as mine). Was great to see them and say hi, but meant a lot of running around so wasn't entirely restful. The two days spent at Hanmer Springs Thermal Reserve however were very restful. Would have stayed there longer if we could have managed it. Hoping to get my motivation back up to get down to the garage and start making again. Thought I might start looking in my scrap pile and make some tool totes and stuff to use some up and maybe flick off for some pocket money.
  5. Well they can be worn walking on the reef and fishing. Gotta watch out for other wildlife in the sea too! The blue-ringed octopus is deadly and small, and there are stonefish........ <sigh>.
  6. "Send missiles here".......
  7. Hence my line about the hat.....notice the similarity? I didn't choose randomly you know!
  8. And a lot of shoes and handbags....
  9. Well, inquiring minds want to know what they present? Their teeth? Leftover legs to make shoes?
  10. Going walkabout is typically an Aboriginal thing rather than something all Australians do - it's a cultural part of their life. From Wikipedia: In Australian Aboriginal society, Walkabout is a rite of passage during which males undergo a journey during adolescence, typically ages 10 to 16, and live in the wilderness for a period as long as six months to make the spiritual and traditional transition into manhood. I'm pretty sure I'd have all sorts of issues if I went walkabout, not the least being SWMBO!
  11. Pedestrian crossing. Back in New Zealand we have striped poles with an orange light globe on top.
  12. @Stick486 You should totally come for a visit! You could enjoy such road signs as "legs", which were the funniest thing to us when we came here the first time (just visiting at that stage).
  13. I haven't seen any in my limited travels so far, at least not like that. Shark and jellyfish signs yes, not the croc ones where I've been. The snakes, spiders and ants I suspect aren't signs except maybe in a wildlife park, but I stand to be corrected.
  14. Oh, it's Bob! I thought he'd just swum away when I ran out of chickens........ I can see all kinds of potential for disaster here. One place I won't be visiting.
