    Ok, i've drugged the guards with the pentobarb they had ready to give to me. It's my dose split between 4 but they'll still be tame as pussycats for hours...... Don't f*** with me man, i'm craaazy!

    The darker meaning of matilda: As you know a 'matilda' is a slang term for a bedroll or 'swag'. Often, it was as simple as a cheap blue blanket in which a few small items were wrapped, secured with rope or cord and slung over the swaggie's back, Hence the alternate term, 'humping the bluey'. No, Virginia. I don't mean that sort of humping ... well, actually i do. But we'll get to that in a sec. To hump something in the context of the bluey being humped is to carry it on your back. A hump, geddit?

    Now, swagmen were oft accompanied by ladies of sorts, like 'camp followers' if you get my drift, of somewhat dubious morals. These also became known after a while generically as 'matildas', much as modern-day hookers refers to their clients as 'johns'. Now, you lie down with your swag matilda after you've waltzed it all day doncha? You also do a spot of horizonal folk dancing with your other matilda see? No guess why the name Matilda fell out of favour here for a generation or two, however it's back with a vengeance now though. The young fry have forgotten about them, or probably they didn't even know about the slutty matildas.

    Btw, we stopped eating each other ages ago. We only eat tourists now but you Yanks are a bit fatty. OK if marinated in lemon juice and then are more like lemon chicken than long pig.

    Catch you manana dude.



    It's always manana. I reckon you'll never flash that 276c. Tomorrow never comes.

    Interesting stuff there. But my goodness but this Neil feller sounds almost as crazy as me! I better follow my usual policy when dealing with dangerous excitable maniacs and try to humor him. As for you, Mister Magnetron, what you need to do is hang an electronic translator around your neck so that regular normal people can understand whatever it is you are trying to say. As for reading instructions, as they say, Only read the instructions as an absolute last resort after all else fails.

    Here's the finale of "On the Beach". Sorry, I don't know how to make the window appear. The trick some bloke taught me doesn't seem to work here.

    OK, what I did (and probably here's where Neil goes nuts again!) was I created a new Garmin folder in the C root. If you open up that folder you will find this:

    test
    WebUpdater
    test.rar

    "Watch the next vid in the playlist after that one, pretty similar eh what?"

    Yeah. I like that.

    When you say that "matilda" is back with a vengeance now, in what context is it used now?

    Not long ago I read a couple of books by a wacky character who calls himself Boxer Hobo (one of the sports I used to dabble in). He was living in Tasmania at the time. Free and cheap on Kindle. His website

    Tasmania sounds nice, except when people punch you in the back of the head. I had a pretty vivid dream about tasmanian wolves a couple of years ago.

    That waltzing matilda song got stuck in my head.

    I just asked my pal who was transported from New York to Sydney if she wants to join in here and lend me some moral support and holler at you mugs for confusing me. I dunno, maybe she even knows something about GPS's and bat files.

    If she wants to take over with your IT and GPS training i'd be happy to give her a quick hand-over briefing. What size does she wear? Having the 'test' folder inside the C:/Garmin folder as a subfolder won't work. Both Garmin and test must be root folders, unless of course you change the text in the bat file to conform with that placement.

    I meant the girl name Matilda is popular again.

    Tasmanians generally are quite inbred like Louisiana swamp folk.

    Maggie is from WA, he holds an honourary doctorate in West Coast Pirate Lingo. 'Tis a curious pidgin English, Australia's version of creole. It contains many highly offensive swear words and inappropriate slurs, cleverly hidden in the apparent arrant nonsense that it is. Totally indecipherable to outsiders and barely understandable by other Aussies, it is a living dialect which changes rapidly and is spoken only by a small tribal group of which Maggie is the elected leader. It's expected that both they and their lingo will die out soon as the tribe eat their young. Anything else you like to know about Oz? I mean the actual true stuff, not the bulldust. If jokers from here tell you that we ride emus and kangaroos to town, that's total BS. Emus and kangaroos are banned in towns.

    Still dunno how to make a vid display hey? Read last part of [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    That's enough for now, the Largactil is kicking in.

    Now lest you inbred tasmanians, or whatever you are, think that my friend was transported for being a matilda, she was not. She was just a poor penny-seller apple girl living in a sixth floor walkup hovel on Jones Street in Hells Kitchen, well Greenwich Village actually, who got pinched by the coppers for stealing a banana* off of a cart on the lower east side to try to feed her starving Uncle Goopy.

    That translation sign gag, I first invented it to use on some Scottish guys. I was lost in the midlands and driving a rented car with everything bizarrely on the wrong side, including the manual shift, on absolutely crazy roads with brick walls for shoulders and gigantic tour busses and lorries coming from the other direction at top speed and passing me by less than an inch, and constant crazy roundabouts which were totally confusing to me, so then I got off onto a quiet side road in the country except a car with four young guys was tailgating me, so I jammed on the brakes and stopped and jumped out, and it was pretty funny because they all rolled out. They thought I wanted to fight the lot of them. Maybe they thought I was from their rival Dead Rabbit gang or something. But then when I just asked them where the heck I was they became super friendly. I liked Scotland. I hiked up Doon Hill to the Fairy Tree at dusk, and the fairies tried to catch me and take me to Fairy Land as they did the Reverend Kirk back in the 17th century, and Scottish fairies are not little innocent poofs like Walt Disney's fairies. Anyway, that's what I told them, they need translation signs. It was difficult to make out a word of their blather. I'm sure they do that just for the tourists.

    Is Maggie - and by the way that's a girl's name - from Perth? That place fascinates me. It's a city at the end of the world. Once - oh never mind, I've babbled too much already, though I'm pretty sure you mugs are hanging upon my every word (with your ring-bedecked fingers hovering over the ban button).

    I'll try separating those things and putting them in the C root all by themselves and see what happens next. Nothing I'm sure. If this works I'll eat my hat.

    PS I looked up Largactil. Oh, thorazine. Sounds appropriate. Don't skip any doses, especially when dealing with me. I think I might bring out the worst in you. I tend to do that to people. I'm good at that. Mañana, amigos. Kilroy.


    * A "gros michel", a variety that was much tastier than the kind they sell nowadays.

    You're lucky you were out in the sticks in bonnie Scotland when you chucked the anchor out in that rental. If you'd tried that trick in Glasgow to get the attention of the car behind they'd have asked you quite clearly 'D'ye know where the hospital is Jimmie?'. Upon giving a negative answer you'd have then scored some free multiple rhinoplasty in the form of 4 [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]es followed by some terse and unhelpful directions how to find it and 'Ye get yer Maw tae stitch that up then'. If answering in the positive, you'd get the same treatment with this modified instruction delivered beforehand 'Aye good, well ye go there 'n' get this fixed now'. Even in your case had you tried to speak in an English accent you'd have met a similar fate despite being in that more bucolic setting and when dealing with the same gentle farmhands and ploughboys. However, a reasonable affectation of an Aussie accent would have seen you fondly escorted to the nearest Pub [most likely with an improbable name such as the 'The Downy Nickers & Tilted Kilt'] where they'd feed you the local malty Ale until well after dark refusing to let you buy even a single pint before shoulder-carrying you triumphantly back to their place where you'd be given the difficult choice of which of their fair but 'game-as-hell' sisters to bed for the night [word from the wise: always pick the redhead if available].

    You hat will go down better with some salt and pepper and a little mayo. Chew it well and follow with a liberal dose of your favourite laxative. The flash will work if you manage to get you head outta your ass for long enough to assimilate my very clear and detailed instructions. If you're as good in reading and comprehension as writing shite you'll get there, with or without your Hells Kitchen Matilda's help. In retrospect i do think it may have been easier to teach you how to use MapInstall to generate an image directly to the 276c. Having said that, maybe it'd be easier to teach a goldfish algebra though.

    Footnote: The Scots, Poms, Nips, Kiwis and us Aussies do not drive on the WRONG side. We drive on the RIGHT side, which is the left. You Yanks and the EU carrotmunchers et al drive on the wrong side which is the right. WTF did you hire a manual for anyway? There's enough to worry about without having to fiddle with a gearstick on the wrong side and shuffling around with the clutch pedal. I've only driven in the States in an automatic, that's bad enough for the first day or so. I seriously soiled myself negotiating the first roundabout i ever encountered there in the US [i think the Brits call them traffic circles btw]. There definitely are no poofy fairies in Scotland as you've surmised. In fact there's no poofs at all there, not native ones anyway. Any are originally from England, mostly from Kent. They're only tolerated because they give the local lads something to bash when they tire of beating up each other.

    Toenote: Perth in WA is named after Perth Scotland i believe. I also believe that Maggie [i call him that to piss him of, but i fear he actually likes it] lives in an abandoned giant jackrabbit burrow on the outskirts of Perth along with his dwindling tribe of lingo-speakers. Many of it's obvious entry/exit holes have been dynamited by the local authority and vigilante groups but a few concealed holes remain. Periodically, he emerges after dark driving his troopy[*] with the entire tribe in the back and in a rickerty but commodious towed caravan. They hunt for gold by the light of the moon. They believe gold has magical powers and horde it along with the gnawed bones of other WA Pirate Lingo generations, kept to present in honour of the eventual return of the Big Bunny Spirit to it's sacred warren which they are preserving for that very occasion.[*]Troopy is the affectionate colloquial name for [usually] the long-wheelbase 'Troopcarrier' version of the Toyota Landcruiser with integral enclosed cabin fitted with bench seating in the back. Driven only by 'fair dinkum outdoorsy' types and never by soccer/hockey mums or dads on school runs. The latter [also latte] group drive only wanky softroaders/crossover SUVs which would quickly disintegrate on rural WA roads or immediately get hung-up on a 4" high sapling stump offroad. A troopy is a seriously tough bit of kit, cheerfully rough as guts and pretty much unbreakable very like the blokes wot drive 'em.

    Toenailnote: Your banana nicking matilda sounds 'nice' [doncha hate when ppl say that, almost as bad as 'she's got a really good personality']. Wot the hell was she doing on the lower east side anyway? Hadn't she heard about its gentrification? She deserved to get collared by the wallopers. No wonder she was transported to the colonies. I hope Unka Goopy died of starvation, he sounds gross.

    Toenailclippingnote: Gros Michel bananas sound pretty good. No doubt were much better than the bland ubiquitous Cavendish mostly available these days here and in the US. They're always at least twice the price of cavendish but I only eat Lady Finger bananas here although they're not the same variety known as 'Lady Fingers' or 'Lady's Finger' elsewhere. In other parts of the world ours are actually called Sugar, Pomme or Apple bananas, but here they seem to have a better texture and sweeter taste to me. The very best are what we queenslanders call 'Sugar' bananas, not commercially grown but can sometimes be bought at sunday markets. They have a very intense sweet flavour and a velvety creamy texture. The fruit is very small, many are barely more than a mouthful. Kids love them. When i've managed to get some recently my grandkids practically hoovered them down just like my own kids did when we had them growing in the yard years ago. Cavendish [even Chiquitas] are like pigfood comparatively. Sorry, slipped into seriousness there for a moment. I'll correct that:

    Toenailfilingnote: Got no more to say, just wanted to use that one too. Oh, hang on. I do have more: We don't ban ppl for being smartarses or we'd have practically no members at all. Maggie can't ban you [but i can ban you and i have very shaky fingers ].

    May be in the Middle Age lol
    In the past, almost everybody travelled on the left side of the road because that was the most sensible option for feudal, violent societies. Since most people are right-handed, swordsmen preferred to keep to the left in order to have their right arm nearer to an opponent and their scabbard further from him. Moreover, it reduced the chance of the scabbard (worn on the left) hitting other people.

    Furthermore, a right-handed person finds it easier to mount a horse from the left side of the horse, and it would be very difficult to do otherwise if wearing a sword (which would be worn on the left). It is safer to mount and dismount towards the side of the road, rather than in the middle of traffic, so if one mounts on the left, then the horse should be ridden on the left side of the road.......

    I'm not lost in here Caty. Just honing my skills in the time-honoured Aussie national sport of beating up the Yanks and Poms. We'll happily smack the Eyeties around too, but you being a lady 'n' all would never receive that treatment from my hands [nothing to do with your being my Boss of course].
    Please let me explain what MapInstall has to do with all this, PLEEEASE? [i might go do some work elsewhere while you think about that ].
