    Hi all,

    I off on leave till Monday 9 November. I will be in New Zealand. I will try and look into the forums when I can get access to a wi-fi connection but in general, if others can't answer your questions, then it will have to wait till I get back. If you are having technical difficulties raise a support ticket with LNL. But don't worry I will be back. :)

    Thanks budd. I had a great break. The scenery was fantastic. Here's the first of my "top pics". It was taken from Muna Moke, the holiday house we rented just west of Queenstown in the south island of New Zealand. It's looking east early in the morning towards the 'Remarkables', the range of mountains in the background.

    Well it was where they filmed it. In fact they run Lord of the Rings and Hobbit tours from Queenstown but I didn't go on one of these.

    On one day we took a trip on the historic 1912 coal steamer that plies the lake between Queenstown and an historic settlement on the other side. The first shot is of the steamer.

    Taken from the steamer looking up at Muna Moke, the holiday house we rented.

    This next shot is taken from the settlement looking north east back to Queenstown.

    On the Tuesday morning of my trip I woke early to see that it had snowed on the peaks opposite us.

    We spent yesterday relaxing on the beach o_O

    A guy in the pub informed us that the white foam is called "spume".
    They have a lot of 'spume' in North Wales :p

    I'm going to trump those two beautiful images with a picture of the flooding near where we are staying, taken through a rare break in the cloud :)
    In the foreground my wife Karen and our Jack Russell Terrier Nelson, bravely battling the elements.
