Happy Holidays from Australia

Unanswered Question
Dec 23rd, 2009

This is the last working day for us "down under" and in behalf of my employer and I, we would like to greet each and every participant of the NetPro community a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  May peace and good tidings bless us all next year.


Have a wonderful and safe holidays.


NOTE:  Don't drink too much egg-nog.  Kojak-with-a-Kodak is all over the place! 

I have this problem too.

Have a nice holiday all of you! From Greece this time.

You guys started the 'drink talk' and got me looking things up in wikipedia once again!

Some guy was trying to hack my notebook earlier and guess what? IP seems to be coming from Australia (not joking). Thankfully, I had the camera secured with adhesive tape (hardcore security methods). Forgot to secure the microphone though!

Unless you are a kiwi, we're going to set the "coat hanger" on fire again to herald in the new year.  Happy New Year to each and everyone from Australia!!!!

Yipee ka yay!!!

Happy New Year everyone!

"coat hanger" is another moniker (in a loving sort of way) for the Sydney Harbour Bridge which we set alight with fireworks. 

Saw your comment about your security measures for your webcam.  Surprisingly this is what I do too.

"coat hanger" is another moniker (in a loving sort of way) for the Sydney Harbour Bridge which we set alight with fireworks and "kiwi" is a jargon for our next-door-neighbors, the New Zealanders.

Native English teacher used to say: Maria is reading her dictionary again, trying to find a very difficult word for me to explain! Do you think I haven't looked everything up? This is what I do! I've found a page with Aussie slang. I also saw your bridge on fire for year 2009 on youtube. According to Freud (whom I otherwise dislike, I do everything because I have a thing for my daddy? hello?) analysis of humour, jokes typically have something unreasonable and laughter comes when/if person realizes the unreasonable. We laugh less if someone explains the joke. Anyway, in my interpretation I chose the meanings of 'bird' for 'kiwi' and 'dangerous high tackle in Australian rules football, running player is stopped by an arm to the chest or neck and usually gets knocked backward onto their back' for 'coathanger'. So basically, what I was saying is I can fly, I am attacking you and you need to defend yourself ('dodge this' is the epic trinity line from matrix of course). 'Hi-ya' is an emulation of a karate-style sound. Maybe the combination was a bit paranoid, but I usually do that as well!

p.s. Message was edited because I realized the link I posted previously contains words that might violate policies for posting to the site. I am sorry I didn't notice this earlier.

You are so web 2.0   I had to go downstairs and get my iPhone to read your message.

Cheers,

May I ask anyone who reads this post do the following:

1.  Go to "Google.com";

2.  In the search bar, type "let it snow" and hit enter;

3.  Wait for about 3 seconds for the script to run; and

4.  Enjoy.


Merry Christmas to one and all.

From us here in Canberra, Australia.
