Thanks Lee - very illuminating! I'll supply beer on behalf of myself and Terry (Terry please note!) if we make it to Oz and SA on the planned June/July trip. But if it's too cold we'll head north (Brisbane and Cairns) and leave south for next Tet (early 2025).

Thanks for your concern guys.

This is the typical of the action of a membership bot (usually from (content deleted by Admin), etc). It happens, generally, about twice a year. It may be tied to activities in establishments of 'higher learning' as their courses cover subjects which allow students to author software such as SPAM, auto logons, worms, etc. Software add on modules for the website will cost $$$$$$$ (probably lots).
All the recent request for registration, on the site (which is what the are) have been deleted. Ahh the troubles of an Administrator, sob. Send beer to home address  ;D ;D ;D 8)

It's up to 359 views now so must surely be a glitch in the system - I'll email Lee (cc to you) to see if he can shed any light on the subject because some of the other posts have even higher view numbers!
Btw, we're back in VN now from a coupla weeks downunder and I seriously feel more at home here than in Australia because they haven't gotten around to making rules for everything in VN (yet) and we can pretty much do whatever we want - I love it! I also feel much safer from respiratory diseases with everyone wearing face masks (mainly to protect against motorbike fumes but also useful against Covid and similar airborne stuff - especially as we're surrounded by Saigon River on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other, with constant sea breezes carrying lots of nasties).

I'd love to help Linh and Sunny in the kitchen but they won't hear of it - especially when it comes to Vietnamese meals! And now we're downunder for just a couple of weeks (Sunny's school holidays for Lunar New Year: "Tet"), we're just eating out most of the time because short of time to get things done without spending it in the kitchen! Happy days - and let's hope the world calms down a bit in 2024 as I'm not sure I can take too much more of the madness we've seen in the past 4 years since Covid emerged! We've just had our sixth vaxes but the "bomb proof" westerners in Oz make me nervous walking around without masks - it's an airborne disease but they reckon face masks are too uncomfortable!

Have any of you erstwhile chefs purchased an air fryer? Since getting married I have not bothered with cooking only the simple things, relied on my wife, lazy git I know. But buying one it has kindled an interest in cooking as it is so simple to use and does away with all the pots and pans used on a conventional stove/oven. Take care all

Great stuff Lee - many thanks. Now Ian Lynch's photo of the Australian Museum reflection pool panel is at least ensured of a home somewhere on this website. And thanks for info re .png files - very useful to know (especially for me, because Linh forwards lots of photos from her iPhone and they come in all system types and only rarely .jpg or .jpeg).

But will it work???

Well there you go.

Click the thumbnail to increase size, click full size image to return to thumbnail.

Ian's original image (his email attachment) is a .png file (size 1.842MB) which exceeded the allowable attachment size, hence the error message that Ian reported.

info - What is a PNG file? Portable Network Graphics files (PNGs) are compressible and like JPEGS, can handle 16 million colors. They're mostly used for web graphics, logos, charts, and illustrations, rather than high-quality photographs, because they take up more storage space than JPEGs.

.png files are typically larger (by a factor of 5-8 times) than .jpg files.

Moral of the story - stay away from .png files - use .jpg instead.
I had to tweak the Message Board Attachment settings to make it work properly - more adjustment may be required in the future.

We've had (muted) "western" Christmas and New Year celebrations here in Vietnam and the country will soon come to a standstill as the bulk of nearly 100 million residents travel home to celebrate the advent of 2024 Lunar New Year ("Tet") with their families: Chuc mung nam moi!
