The good people here will no doubt have noticed that there is an abundance of Aussies here at Linux.org

Just a little something to wish everyone a Merry Christmas....from Alice Springs-based cinematographer, Chris Tangey,

Won't allow me to go fullscreen and keeps looping on me, but I may be holding my mouth the wrong way :eek::oops::rolleyes:

I'll try on another Distro or 10 if need be, lol.

Thanks Brian

I have no problem going full screen on any of my 8 year old junk computers.
Perhaps all of that modern computer hardware won't allow it to full screen properly. :p

OK I can see trying another Distro, but W10 there's a solid solution. :eek::D

Just being a smart alec. :p:D:)

Like does not begin to describe it, I think I laughed as much at Ainsley's laughter as in the bird's antics :D:D

Let's hear what John Williamson has to say on the subject (John is one of Australia's favourite C&W singers)

And.....here we go again !!!

ULURU.png


ULURU....probably one of the most recognisable landmarks in Australia...possibly the world
Uluru, or Ayers Rock, is a massive sandstone monolith in the heart of the Northern Territory’s arid "Red Centre". The nearest large town is Alice Springs, 450km away. Uluru is sacred to indigenous Australians and is thought to have started forming around 550 million years ago. It’s within Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, which also includes the 36 red-rock domes of the Kata Tjuta (colloquially “The Olgas”) formation.
Elevation: 863 m

I have been there...it really is quite majestic.ULURU.png
