    New Year greetings

    To all readers & lurkers on BFF, from Tasmania, where we are experiencing the gentlest of summers as a result of a very weak La Nina, and, (as far as I know) no C19.

    No C19 - that would make for a very happy New Year

    Hi John, Happy new year to you and equally any one else too!

    First off, your link requires us non tassies to login to view


    Weather wise, here in the south its been pretty mild generally so far this winter, but there has at times been quite a bit of precipitation, though luckily for us the worst seems to of been further up north- we seemed to just get the edges of it in passing. CV19 wise - at times it would be great to have the isolation you lot down there enjoy, but there you are we all have to make the best of where we are and keep on to the summer.

    Best rgds

    Hmm... now that's a puzzle. When I click on the link shown in your reply, I go to Apple News, to which I have not subscribed, but comes automatically at the weekend!

    Maybe Gee could post the correct link coz it is a corker! Deserves widespread distribution, even at the risk of clogging up the internet!

    Western Australia seems to be well isolated, more so than Tassie actually, and they don't have a moat - unless you consider the Nullabour as a moat.

    The link is to a (I presume your's) webmail server.

    Don't think so, Paw. I checked the link and what I posted is what I downloaded from Gee's email. I can play it from Downloads, but cannot send it to myself as an attachment. The link is to a 43 second cartoon produced by an Indian animation company, so I'm wondering if there is a block of some sort preventing it being reproduced. If that is true, how was Gee able to send it to me? It's very innocuous and humourous: shows an animated, stylised C19 virus pulling on the numerals 202 and laughing. The second "2" whistles up a "1" who promptly sticks a hypodermic in the virus, which explodes, and the "1" takes its place to form "2021".
    All with superb cartoonish facial expressions. Should be a good ad. for the animators and thus able to be distributed.

    Crikey, missed all the fun!

    I reckon that Gee's message or link for the attachment when handled by your mail server and then posted by yourself online here has become an item saved to your mailserver at this location/address

    https://webmail.eftel.com.au/squirre...assed_ent_id=0

    And to access it we would need your username and password which your email client automatically uses to login, thus you see it no problem but to us- we are blocked!

    You may of been able to find the location address that gee's mail client used when he posted the Gif to you in his message data before your mailserver or client saved it and gave it that new ID/address at eftel.com

    Might be wrong, but thats what I think is happening?

    I think that has been their big advantage having just the main road connections top and bottom to patrol. Boy has said that its been mainly merchant ship crew that have made cases once the cruise ships sent to Rottnest island were sort out. And a few international travellers that have been caught by testing during their isolation in the government run hotel accommodation.

    Really seems Australia's problems are more over on the gold coast with the greater density of "can't care less morons" over there. Unfortunately most countries have their share of them and the issues they bring. Really depends how hard the countries law enforcement are in dealing with them

    Precisely! Will Darwin's principles apply?
