  1. Hi Sagir and welcome to APN Feel free to start your own thread when you decide to build in the aquaponics systems thread. I look forward to watching your progress Enjoy... Cheers.
  2. Hi Ande, Great Capture indeed...I enjoyed watching that...Thanks. Cheers.
  3. Hi Ande, This saddens me.... As an interesting twist on this, I saw a programme on T.V. maybe a year ago on the plastic and rubbish being washed up on the shores of Somalia, I think... The locals were so poor that they would go to the beach and scavenge amongst this rubbish to see if they could find anything useful to make things with, they would take this home and make some trinket shoe or whatever and sell at the local markets...The only way they knew how to survive... I'm saddened at how us humans are so inconsiderate to everything around us and insist on being that way that we are deliberately killing this lovely planet we have been so lucky to live on. Cheers.
  4. Hi Glenn and welcome to APN, We look forward to watching your build and progress in the new build section...Feel free to ask any questions you wish and I reckon someone is bound to come up with an answer. Enjoy the addiction. Cheers.
  5. Watched the video, and my thoughts are that's all very good to say that except, my understanding of the U.S. which I admit is limited, you can not say what you wish... I'll give you one example and am happy to be corrected...I understand that teachers can not talk about Christianity in schools for fear of being taken to court, plus losing their jobs. I know in Australia the times are not as free speech as they used to be...The discrimination laws here are tough on what you can and can not say...For instance....One can not say certain things which may offend others...Now we are starting to get very complex, I really don't want to get involved too much there because it will lead to no where...I just try to manovre around these laws, not get to worried about them because that will waste what limited time I have left on this earth and try to have a peaceful, normal life.... Here is something else to lighten up your day...*****WARNING******VERY BAD LANGUAGE ALERT***** Pretty much sums up things over here too... And here's something else you may like to watch***Warning***VERY BAD LANGUAGE ALERT*** One may or may not agree with these two characters but I think they sure make you think about things in a different light...Whether the place is ruled by Obama or Trump I think we are still doomed and in the end greed and selfishness will undo everything IMO.... Cheers.
  6. The media are talking up peace on the Korean peninsula ....Like usual...Jumping the gun way too early....Plenty of things to go right before they are anywhere near peace...And one thing that needs to go right is the North Korean dictator to keep his word...Past experience of both him and his father is they do not keep their word.... We'll have to wait and see if things are looking up there. "Strange things happen when Trump is president" That reminded me of this. "Strange days indeed...Most peculiar momma" Not really on topic but here's a little something to lighten up your day. Cheers.
  7. Hi everyone, Yet another year has past and we are enjoying the freedoms we have because of the sacrifices the armed forces have made who have and are at war... I have been to several dawn services over the years and it is pleasing to see a broard cross section of people there particularly all the young families and there have been and are plenty. We will remember them...
  8. Hi Kellen,

    On the respect thread , I think we have gone off topic..Could you move the political gobblgook that has been posted over the last couple of days to another more appropriate thread please?

    Also there's a report that's been highlighted to me for the last couple of weeks if you could take the notification away please? I've read it now

    How have you been anyhow, I've seen bits and pieces of your posts on fb apart from that haven't seen much of you...

    Cheers

      Hi BD!  Life's been a bit crazy lately (mostly in good ways), but I'm still quietly checking in on things.  Really looking forward to getting a few things off my plate so I can start trolling all of you guys on the forum more often again. haha.

      I'll take a look at the thread and the notification.  Thanks man and take care! :)

  9. Hi folks, Not meaning to be protective or offensive in any way, but we have moved completely off topic here, even for the lounge section...Could we please save the political stuff (such as who's the better president etc) for the U.S. Shutdown thread or the likes? I just thought we'd discuss respect and how the older and younger generation respect each other etc on this one. Cheers
  10. Hi AtomsDad and welcome to APN, Cheers.
  11. Congrats Bryan, Good luck, Cheers.
  12. Thanks mate, Appreciate you doing that for me. Why Not a web based generator? Cheers.
  13. Hi everyone, Some advise from those who know please. At the moment there seems to be a push or strong encouragement for people to install password generators to protect against hackers...I have a couple of questions... Is tis secure? The reason I ask is you need to provide an email address and password to develope an account...To me a hacker just has to crack your password and they have access to all of your stored passwords in one area... If this is advised, which are the best programmes to install? Cheers.
  14. Hi Cecil, I don't know how it was statistically but I live down in South Australia which typically has a mediterranean climate...I reckon this year we did have a couple of hot ones...40C ish 104F and maybe a bit dry overall in comparison to other years but I didn't think it turned out particularly hot. I do remember saying we had a bit more rain than normal. Summer may have started out that way but finished a bit dry... Right now, we are and have been experiencing glorious weather Max 20C-30C 68F-86F during the days but could do with some rain. (At night please:) ) I wonder how others winters and summers faired? Cheers.
  15. Hi Super Stewie, I think you are overcomplicate things...at this stage in your adventure... I have a suggestion....Why don't you read up on the principles of filtration in the first instance and get your head around that?..There are plenty of posts here on this forum which will help you...Just use the search function...I learnt a fair bit about filtration reading and communicating with Gary and Paul on Gary's mega bin system thread and building on my knowledge... Gary floats in from time to time now so he's around to help... Paul has moved on...There are other people around who I think will chime in if you ask... Once you get a solid grounding then get into the calculations if you wish to go down that path...iAVs uses a particular sand for it's media and Mark McMurtry has also moved on but he has given us reams of technical information if you wish to go that way... The good thing about aquaponics is it can be as involved as you want it to be...But...I would recommend getting your head around the basics first before upping the ante... So yeah I agree with Gary, Sort out in your head which way you want to go by answering those and a few more questions then learn the basic and off you go... I look forward to seeing what you build in the future..Please start a thread in the build section and keep us posted... We are here if you need... Good luck Cheers.
