Cheers Deej. If the cyclone doesn't downgrade from a category 4 it probably WILL blow out house down

But glad you're concerned, bud

Just called my mate in Rocky. Said it's the biggest storm he's ever witnessed. Thinks it will be a 3 by the time it hits.

Thanks Steve. I've been through a cat 1 cyclone before plus a mini tornado once and I can honestly say they both pale in comparison to this baby

Stay safe Nick.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Stay safe mate. I have been through a few up here but the Cat 4 and 5's have missed so we have been lucky. It is pretty terrifying to say the least.
