  1. I can't see them on my PC either. Tried three different browsers, but what I see is many lines of code - no pics or rectangles. On one of Dropbear's previous posts I could see one of the pics but could not see the others. I thought it might be because they were uploaded from an Android device, and not compatible with my windows PC.
  2. I have fished the stretch from the Albert/Logan junction down to the mouth a few times recently and there is plenty of depth for much larger boats than my 4.9M tinny. There are navigation markers for the last 4 or 5 Km to the mouth, which is where it can be a bit tricky. Between the junction and these markers, there are a couple of sandbars which are shallow at low tide., but they are mostly on the inside of the bends and can be avoided by not cutting the corner as you round the bends. I haven't been there recently, but in the past I did some crabbing along the Bethania and Edens Landing areas and was quite deep all through there. I have no experience with the section between the highway and the junction, but I have no reason to believe that it is any different to the the sections above & below it. After heavy rain there can be some flotsam in the river, and after any flooding it can be quite quite bad, but most of the time there is only the occasional piece floating rubbish to watch out for.
  3. It has always puzzled me why ganged hooks are less likely to spook fish than a short length of wire, especially if it is nylon coated. Two or three extra hooks is a lot more metal. But ganged hooks with no wire is so often recommended that I guess it must work better than wire, and there must be some reason behind it. Anybody here know why, or got any theories ??
  4. It seems that HEIC is a relatively new format that only works on the latest Apple and I-Phone OS's. It may become more popular in time because it is more efficient than the old JPG's. I only converted one of the pics to test it, but Iwill convert the others and post them shortly.
  5. I don't think there is a problem with the site. I couldn't open them in Linux or in Windows 10, but I was able to download them and use a free online service to convert them to JPEG, which Windows was then able to display. When I tried to open the unconverted HEIC files in Windows, it offered to sell me an app to convert them, or a codec to read them, which I declined.
  6. Dear Tech Support Last year I upgraded Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. The new program soon began unexpected child processing, which took up a lot of space and valuable resources. In addition, Wife 1.0 seems to have installed itself into all my programs, and now monitors and controls ALL other system activity. Favourite applications such as PokerNight 1.3, Football 2.4, Golfday 3.3 and Fishing 4.8 will no longer run, and crash the system whenever I try to select them. I just cannot keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run any of my former favourite applications. I'd like to go back to Girlfriend 7.0, but Wife1.0 does not seem to include an uninstall feature. What can I do ?? Please help !. Thanks in advance, A Toubled User. ____________ _________ REPLY: Dear Troubled User: This is a very common problem, and many men ask for advice on how to deal with it. They upgrade Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 , thinking that it is just an improved Utilities and Entertainment program. But it is NOT !!!!. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM -- which was designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING !!! You cannot roll back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 has been designed to make this absolutely impossible. It is possible, but very difficult to modify this program or purge from your system once it has been installed. If you do manage to un-install the program, you may regret it, because Wife 1.0 will make this very expensive. Have a look under Wife1.0/Help/Contents/FAQ/uninstall and you will see a list of penalties which include the following :- Alimony - Child Support - Legal Fees - Asset Split, to mention just a few. I can only recommend that you keep Wife1.0 and work on improving the situation. Wife 1.0 is a great program, but it tends to be very high maintenance. It comes with many useful features, such as Cook-It 1.5, Wash&Iron 4.2, Clean&Sweep 3.1, and several others. However, you must be careful how you use them. Improper or excessive use of any of these functions may launch sub-routine NagNagNag 9.5 . Once this starts, the only way to restore Wife 1.0 to normal is to buy expensive corrective software/hardware. I recommend either Flowers 2.1, or if that doesn't work, the more expensive Jewelry 5.0 . I also suggest installing & running the background application 'Yes Dear' to improve operation and reduce software conflict. When conflict does occur, as sooner or later it will, then the best course of action is to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE . You will have to use the APOLOGIZE command before the system will return to normal, so you might as well do it right away. Do NOT, under any circumstances, try to install SecretaryWithShortSkirt 3.3 . This application is not supported by Wife 1.0 and serious conflict will result. Even the use of the Apologise command may not restore the system to normal. Don't even think about trying to secretly download and install Girlfriend 8.0, because Wife1.0 will detect any such application, creating extremely serious conflict, which could damage your system beyond repair. (Once again - see the warnings above) Best of luck, Tom@Tech Support .

  8. This type battery doesn't usually come with a charger unless it is a package deal put together by the seller. If you want the battery to last, you will need to get a charger for it. Batteries die quite quickly if they are run down too far and/or not recharged promptly. And any warranty would be void. You really should get a "smart" charger. Overcharging kills batteries just as dead as leaving them flat. A small low amperage unit will do the job on a battery like this. With a half decent smart unit you can leave it on for some time past full charge without harming the battery. Good ones can be left on indefinitelty. CTEK make really good multi-stage intelligent chargers, but they are not cheap, and as Tybo said, they would be over the top for your little battery. I have never used them myself, but Jaycar have basic smart chargers for about $30 - $40 and a 3 stage smart charger for about $50. You should be able leave the battery on permanent float charge with one of these.
  9. Cant comment on the ramp/carpark situation, but as for Mission Point itself, take LOTS of mozzie repellent. They can be almost thick enough to pick you up and drag you back into the swamps where they live. Once when I wanted to camp on South Straddie for a few days I canvassed a few houses near the ramp. Concentrated on ones that were on larger blocks with space to spare. I got lucky and found an elderly couple who let me park in their yard. Could be worth a try.
  10. Thanks Drop Bear, I now have K-Meleon showing all the pics. Not quite sure what was causing the problem as I fixed it by restoring to default settings and then activating only the options I really needed. As for pics of my own - I'm just getting back into fishing after a long time away from it, and I have not yet caught anything worth getting the camera out. As soon as I boat a worthy catch, I will pic and post it.
  11. Thanks for that ellicat. Looks as though it must be a browser setting. I'm ruuning Windows 10 on a PC and using the K-Meleon browser, so I tried with Firefox and it works OK. I didn't suspect the OS or the Browser because I can see the pics on other forums with that pairing. However I can now see them and know what I have to sort out thanks again, deegee12g
  12. I'm a newbie on this site and I can't see the pics in the recent posts. I can see them in at least some of the older "stickies" but not in current posts. Is there some criterion that I have to meet (e.g. time or number of posts) before I can see them ???
  13. G'day all, I'm Don and I'm just getting back into fishing after a few years away from it. I have an old 4.85m Express with a fairly new Honda 60 on the back. In the past I mostly fished Moreton Bay and not too far offshore from the Gold and the Sunny Coasts. Since I got started again it has mostly been the bay. Nearly finished fitting out a 12ft punt with electric power so I can fish Hinze and NP dams. Cheers, Don.
