Welcome and thank you for joining. I know that things will seem kind of dead in the beginning, but that will change if you start posting ;)
Please don't hesitate to suggest new ideas.

Thanks for the invite!

Nice to have a local board up. I can't promise I'll post that much at the moment, as my work tends to take up a helluva lot of time, but I'll keep an eye out and also spread the word.

Hi All,

Yes, it is good to have a local board at last - thanks, bluegray V.

Without much fear of contradiction, I think it is safe to say that the most pressing South African issue for sceptics to face and oppose is our country's unique approach to healthcare, as typified by our Minister of Health and State President's stance on the whole AIDS/HIV question. The wider context of the health issue includes the wild claims of sangomas, witchdoctors, etc., and the rampant superstitions they engender and promote. Some time ago I composed a lengthy article on general CAM in response to a family member mouthing off against conventional medicine. I'll post it here on the forum shortly (I hope it's not too big).

Other issues of marginally lesser local import are the science-woos who periodically emerge from wherever they do. Recent examples include that oke from Potch with his non-Newtonian motor, and Danie Krugel, locator extraordinaire, with his magic box that locates a person using a hair sample, as featured on e-TV's "3rd Degree" a few weeks ago. I wrote them an e-mail, suggesting Krugel try for the JREF prize, but haven't received any response yet (and likely never will).

What are the specifications applicable to avatar images (file format, dimensions, maximum file size, etc.)?

Is it possible to upload images from one's local machine for inclusion in messages or as avatars? If so, how is this done?

Thanks in advance.
