Thanks for the contributions, guys - very much appreciated  :clap2:

It has rained all day, Gin. Weíre fine but the track would be under water, with continued showers expected. I hope the polytrack suits !!

Westie, sounds great! Iíll work it out and feel sure it will work for me. Thanks  :beer:

Good point, Peter. I buy the C-Mail for my wife most days, so I can use itís form guide for notes. Itíll be ok for me.

Lifeís good Ö. Just wet!!

I get the Midweek version on Monday evening and the Saturday version on Thursday evening.

I've given up, Westie - I have logged in a bunch of times to a variety of places, changed both usernames and passwords a bunch of times .... and I'm further away now than I was at the start. Bureaucracy gone mad. I'll speak to a live person during the week. I'll have to change all the details again, I guess. I have a headache.

Have you tried establishing your six factor authentication by receiving your personal identifier to your password vault contained within your unique face recognition compartment which can be accessed through the mystery authenticater app that then unlocks the secret website for the instructions on how to accurately identify traffic lights from a thumbnail grid including a detailed explanation of when the pole holding the lights counts and when it doesn't?  ... that usually works for me.

 :embarrassed: :shrug: :o    :lol:  you lost me at "Have you tried ...."

Actually, I will try and work my way through it over the next day or so. So wet here that I have to entertain myself somehow   :biggrin:

Actually, I looked back and thought I had underestimated myself.   :biggrin:

Where I came from, I could rely on an IT department to help with all the difficult stuff like logging in. This retirement caper is tough ...... as the rain gets heavier and delays my walk to the BWS store around the corner again.  :fishing:

As I call our IT department, Captain Google. I'm sure that's all they do  :chin:

Just heard that Puntermatt, a long term forumite, had been badly impacted by the Queensland floods. 1 metre of water through his house, evacuated by row boat.

Monologue tells me that stables at Eagle Farm are under water, including Rob Heathcote.

I wish it would stop raining. The mornings high tide looms as terrible.

Yeah my daughter had to wade out of her place at Windsor in waste high water with her bag over her head - in 2011 the water only came to the back fence.

It's certainly turning for the worst very quickly.

Sorry to hear that, mate. I hope she got the chance to rescue some important items, particularly for keeping the things that provide important memoriesÖ plus, of course, precious things. All so sad, but good to hear she is safe

It's a high set with just an open space/garage and laundry underneath - so everything upstairs should be OK.  :x:

My son has been trapped on the highway south of the Tweed, north of Byron - not sure exactly where, but the highway is cut in front of him and behind him. He should be ok because there is some high ground nearby if he has to leave his car. Still raining lightly where he is, but hopefully the weather system is heading south. If he is stuck, the next high tide is higher than the last.

Thanks for the kind thoughts, J

The good news is that he is OK, although still trapped by the water, probably for another 24 hours or so. The SES are going to deliver some food and water; all they've had for a day has been barley sugar and malteesers lol

I hope he knows barley sugar is no good for his teeth and Malteesers are no good for his weight. Iíll bet he wishes he had carrots and celery sticks.

Good news, my son and his wife got through the floods this morning and got here to the Sunshine Coast for lunch. Even better news is that he shouted lunch  :beer: ())=(

Iíve just spent a few minutes reading from the beginning of this thread.
