Howdy everyone. (I have posted this to a couple of lists, so I apologise for duplicates that some people may receive) Just wishing those here on the list from the fire affected areas in Victoria, Australia all the best. Current reports are (so far) of 65 dead, more than 700 houses gone, with complete towns wiped off the map. I hope that no-one from our list or known to anyone from the list has been affected too badly. My thoughts are with those in the area, as well as those in New South Wales now affected by fires as well. Given that Australia was officially forecast as the hottest place on the planet this weekend (it hit around 48'C in both the west of both the states I have mentioned) it is hardly surprising that fires have appeared. They are even more dreadful because so many of them were deliberately started, even today there was someone going through and restarting fires in areas that they had just been put out. All the best everyone. Cheers. Paul T.
