Is there going to be an Australian Climbing Festival this year? If there is does anyone
know when it is going to be on?

Thanks, Jay

Next year


BTW, do other people actually remember that HTML rubbish on either side of the address, or do you just C+P it like I do?

You mean you don't actually remember it? (Heh x3)

C+P is not HTML.
Ahh I get it, you are into recycling your rubbish!

Yes, I remember most of that HTML rubbish. I can send email without a mail client too, and fetch web pages... Can't do the encrypted stuff in my head though. :-(

What's C + P anyway? Is there a hint page for all these nifty tricks anywhere as I seem to have to ask everytime I want to do something new?

Copy and Paste

Besides the two links at the bottom of the edit box labeled "Adding links" and "Adding pictures"?

Yes, copy and paste, or control C, control V.

Being something of a techno-avoider (not a phobe necessarily, I just couldn't be bothered learning a lot of it) here's my technique for including links.

Hit reply then the little links come up at the bottom. Open "adding links" in a new window or tab. Then you copy the linky text into the window, and replace the bits in between. It's pretty easy, and makes you look fancy.

all those other ones that underline, strike out etc. And adding quotes from multiple threads/posts (other than finding them all in other windows and C P them?)

That's exactly what I do.

<u>text</u> - underline
<b>text</b> - bold
<i>text</i> - italic

You can 'remember this thread/post' by adding it to your profile. A kind of backdoor way of creating a shortcut to it to find it again more easily at a later date.
Simply go to any of your posts within the thread, edit one of them and you will find under the 'user' heading, a little box to tick (click on) listed as 'Show in Profile'.
BTW This can be done whenever you post a new post, and need not be done later as an edit.
Sometime down the track if your memory is getting hazy, simply click on your profile (your own user ID), and you will find the thread/s listed there.

Another trick is to simply copy and paste relevent items (eg commonly used HTML), to a word document. Whenever you open Chockstone and feel like you may need the reference, then also open the word document. You can easily switch from one to the other with keystrokes Alt/tab, and copy and paste as required from the word document.
Watch out for the " keystroke though, as sometimes it does not mean the same thing in 'word' document as it does in HTML.

... If you use HTML enough you will eventually learn it off by heart.

You can also slowly educate yourself by replying to posts containing HTML and noting its usage and what effect it had on the original posts. These things can be copied and pasted to your word document also, as short-cut reminders for later usage.

Right, it's next year now. There should be a climbing festival this year. Web page even says so.
http://climbingfestival.com.au/index.html

Anyone heard anything yet? Simon, you seem to know everything going on in the Blueys. Any other ideas? Easter is still free for me...

Don't believe everything you read Evan...it always rains at Easter anyway. Don't think it's on mate sorry

...as Hipster says. It's a negative. No festival and not even a vague plan from anyone motivated enough to host another one in the forthcoming years.

Bogus.

Maybe I should follow the lead of the other outdoor sports (MTB in particular) and just declare the Nationals in Canberra?

Must be epic putting together a festival.

Maybe, with a little ego stroking Eduardo might be convinced to crank up the Easter Goat Fest.

Suggestions for events welcome.

I'd say a hammer toss is a certainty.
And given that cycling is the new golf I imagine there will be a road bike event.

Bugger about the Australian climbing festival not happening.
Easter Goat Fest. Yeah! ~> Go ES!!

As long as it is a certified pre-1965 one? and not one of these!

Easter is a lucky date for that, as it won't clash with the Merimbula to Kosy (Charlottes Pass), ride at end of March. It is 250 km, 12 hrs and 5,000+ m elevation gain ~ (includes the re-gains after any downhill bits, during the ride). ~> Australia's toughest treddly event?

If you want Goat Fest then send me films.

No films, no Goat Fest.

Was that a 'thread killer' post?
Is the Goat Fest to go the way of the dodo and the Blueys Climbing Festival?
Will the velcro gloves be put away forever?
Heh x3
