Had medium to heavy rain today, friends 30 km away had windscreens smashed & roof/bonnet dents on their & their visitors’ cars from hailstones up to 5 cm across plus damage to roof tiles & patio or window glass damage.
It’s been said that when Noah experienced 40 days & 40 nights of rain this area was in drought.
As for the FW ports, there’s an original Apple iSight camera/stereo microphone to connect to the display. A FW 400 ext HDD for backups also connects to the display.
That leaves a FW400 port on the HDD & the FW800 port on the Mac & the keyboard also sports a free low-power USB 2 port. Still plenty of connectivity available.
I can’t find a suitable video card to fix my 2005 G5 PowerMac & its 20-inch Cinema Display was doing nothing but take up space. I fixed the 15-inch G4 PowerBook with new RAM, so it’s now connected to the display. Three ports on the right of the G4 are used, DVI for video; USB 2 & Firewire 400 as the display incorporates two USB 2 & two Firewire ports. The keyboard is connected to one of the display’s ports leaving a free USB port on the Mac & on the display.
Evacuees are being sent to temporary facilities in Somerville, north of Hastings, being set up at the recreation reserve. In Mallacoota there are still 4,400 people registered for evacuation by sea. HMAS Choules & MV Sycamore combined to evacuate 1,100 people a couple of days ago. Both vessels are heading back to Mallacoota to take more evacuees. The 4,400 people waiting would entail for more round trips for the two ships.
HMAS Choules (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bay-class_landing_ship) will leave the far eastern town of Mallacoota at 4pm today, carrying 963 of an estimated 4000 people trapped by raging bushfires. They are bound for the Victorian port of Hastings on the Mornington Peninsula. It's estimated to take 17 hours for the trip of around 300 nautical miles. I estimate that's running flat out at the ship's maximum of 18 knots.
The road from Mallacoota to the main highway has been reopened, but the highway itself is still closed.
In the fishing/tourist town of Mallacoota in the far east of Victoria, at least 4,000 people are gathered on the foreshore, three fire brigade crews are on standby with them. Reports of gas bottles exploding not far away indicate the loss of some houses to the raging fire. There’s nowhere to go other than into the water if it comes any closer.
Sad news of a fire tornado that engulfed the rear of an 8 tonne fire truck and flipped it over, trapping the crew on board in southern NSW late yesterday. One young volunteer is deceased, another has suffered severe burns and the driver is in shock. In Victoria, a few hours tracer east of here, two men are confirmed dead with grave fears for two other people.
