Southport - Day 22

Day 69 - Thursday 4 September 2014

Fine and 21 degrees today.

The laptop problems continue - Norton Internet Security is the cause of the problem. The solution is to un-install and re-install the software. That's alright if you have your original disks, but is impossible without an internet connection. Solution was to delete all Norton files (there are thousands of them). Laptop now working properly with internet access but no Norton Internet Security until we get home. Surprisingly there has been an enormous increase in speed, which just goes to show the impact of Norton Internet Security in slowing down laptop speed. Will have to be a little careful to try and avoid dodgy sites and refrain from using internet banking and similar sites until we are home.

We spent the rest of the day on maintenance tasks around the van - re-painted the steel work at the front of the van and re-sealed some of the Sikaflex sealant around some of the leaks identified in the recent rains. David spent the rest of the day making a small wrench from a nylon chopping board to undo the wing-nuts on the Awning. They are very hard to get tight and sometimes even harder to undo by hand. He ended up making two and gave Frosty the prototype. The blue lanyards were courtesy of Frosty who has a 100 metre reel of the stuff.

Being Thursday night we joined Frosty and Marg at Club Southport for dinner. We all had the $10 Pizza and Schooner special and this time we were offered a free dessert of a pancake with maple syrup and crème. How's that for value!
