@  Leigh90 : (29 April 2017 - 05:41 PM) Yes - GWS v Bulldogs, great game. I thought that was the Manuka Stadium.  Poor Doggies .... :ohwell:
@  VIC-369 : (29 April 2017 - 05:39 PM) Thanks HasMan and Johnc.  Are you saying it is the same piece of ground but differently named in each case?  Like Telstra Dome/Etihad Stadium?  There you go.  It would have been pretty COLD at the ground last night HasMan.   What was the final score between :saints: and :hawks: ? :saythat:  My old Mum was very happy :saints: 
@  johnc : (29 April 2017 - 04:17 PM) Yuk (or similarly pronounced word)...I'm not watching footy anymore - dumb game.
@  johnc : (29 April 2017 - 01:44 PM) If you watch Hawks v Saints this afternoon from Launceston, DW, you will probably notice a similarity between the U of T oval to that of Aurora Stadium of previous seasons.  GO HAWKS
@  HasMan : (29 April 2017 - 10:40 AM) Funnily enough David, I was at the ground and it looked awfully like Manuka Oval to me. Just like StarTrack stadium did last year. UNSW in Canberra is celebrating 50 years this year. More than 30 of those years have been at the Defence Academy site. UNSW in C provide academics and the Regstered Training Organisation for ADFA
@  VIC-369 : (29 April 2017 - 12:20 AM) :giants: Vs :doggies:in Canberra tonight.  What a great game to watch.  Doesn't matter who is playing if it is a nice close match.  What happened to Manuka (pronounced Marnicka) oval?  They played on the UNSW ground instead.  :?:
@  daanton : (26 April 2017 - 07:57 AM) :hawks: FINALLY! :hawks:
@  andynchap : (25 April 2017 - 06:33 PM) Stupid game. :pies:   :laughter: 
@  Leigh90 : (25 April 2017 - 06:11 PM) :dons:   Great day for a Bombing raid - go Dons.   :cheers:
@  VIC-369 : (25 April 2017 - 01:54 PM) ANZAC DAY.  :thankyou:
@  HasMan : (23 April 2017 - 08:10 PM) What a difference a week makes to JohnC :hawks: 
The Hawks had a really poor start in 2008 - and won the flag
@  johnc : (23 April 2017 - 07:25 PM) :hawks:  Now that's what I'm talking about!  Great win over a good opposition but better still was the "look" -  nearly back to the best....Also today J Roughead kicked his 500th goal.  Wonderful stuff for a bloke who was out for a whole season battling cancer.  Even better will follow/  GO HAWKS
@  johnc : (18 April 2017 - 10:43 AM) Re posters; yes  please David - at the May meeting if it suits you.  Cheers, JC.
@  johnc : (18 April 2017 - 12:44 AM) Quite right Andy Dunb effin stupid game not worthy of my notice - until we start winning again...As we surely will.     Just as a matter of  passing interest I started watching the Hawks in 1947 with my mum and dad and little brother...70 seasons ago.....they are all gone now so it's my duty to  stay with 'The Mighty Hawks' whatever befalls us..and I will.
@  andynchap : (17 April 2017 - 07:37 PM) Stupid game anyway John. Looking at the ladder, I guess the only way is up hey? :laughter:
@  VIC-369 : (17 April 2017 - 07:26 PM) Sad news Johnc after that famous "three-peat".  :hawks:  I have the Harold Sun :cats: poster as well as the :hawks: one if you want it.  :chicken:
@  johnc : (17 April 2017 - 06:51 PM) I went to the footy this arvo -  good seats in the MCC members reserve thanks to my son in law - BUT --   :hawks:worst Hawks team effort I have seen since the 1950s.  And I have grave fears about them getting much better this season after 4 losses in a row, with a couple of them being true thrashings.  I may shout again if they win one.  Thank heavens my grandkids got something out of it from their CATS.  :senior: 
@  John64 : (17 April 2017 - 01:35 PM) ABC news online has a story on Heritage number plates, mostly about the Shannons February auction, plus some photos
@  VIC-369 : (14 April 2017 - 09:28 AM) HAPPY EASTER TO ALL  If you have the holiday I hope you have a safe and pleasant time.  :hello:
@  Keats : (13 April 2017 - 02:30 PM) Very handy - only issue is that, if you go full quality when you save, it ratchets the file size up a lot; I usually crop the image to the relevant portion, resize it to around 900px max, and save at around 92% or so.
@  Keats : (13 April 2017 - 02:29 PM) I use an online one called "Pixlr": http://pixlr.com/express/
@  bigears : (12 April 2017 - 02:41 PM) I could just imagine the time as just a few posts can chew into it a big job Matty_769  :thankyou:  ....... I use PIX resizer Free, Safe, Simple to use etc https://pixresizer.en.softonic.com/  I need PHD software (Push Here Dummy) easy to use stuff that works, files down to 40kb come out nice of course the size and quality of the original is what makes the biggest difference  .......... :cruzin:
@  MattP : (12 April 2017 - 02:09 PM) Matty feel free not to back date your posts as it is easy to miss them if they don't appear in the "new posts" notifications.  Thanks for your long term contribution to the Shed.
@  Matty_769 : (11 April 2017 - 06:24 PM) The benefits have already been covered. There are subjects in the Suggestions and Feedback forum that may assist.  There's lots of programs and guides to be found on the www to assist... Take the time to do some research and guide yourself. Simply a case of ... 1) crop / trim photo to show the subject. 2) resize to 900 wide if larger than 900. 3) save photo as medium quality which normally brings it under 200kb. ... All programs are different so do some homework. Personally I spend a rediculous amount of time resizing my plate photos ... all the off topic stuff never gets a look at, there's simply no time available for me to share my transport photos etc. Here on my near dead computer is about 500+ photos for plateshed that I am needing to resize since late January from several major events (Australia Day, Air Show, Car Shows,  Mt Gambier and 3 interstate trips, including a week in Darwin) plus all the worthy stuff I find online etc.... When I get to post them all... They'll all be back dated like I now do to avoid clogging up everyone's notifications to new posts.... It's pretty much all stuff "for the record" only.
@  andynchap : (11 April 2017 - 03:00 PM) This is the only forum that I know of that encourages people to upload photos, rather than link. You can go back and research items from years ago, and the pics are still there. It's got to be the best way.
