More Twitter updates:

Further update: both www and forum servers are up again at their new location. May be some further downtime later today, but for now the plates are spinning once again. 🀞🀞

And another:

Connectivity from Australia appears to be spotty at best as this stage, probably just a temporary routing and/or DNS issue, hopefully should resolve itself over the next 24-48 hours. But the servers are up and running, no damage done!

Dear Australian Media

Please don’t give the time of day to anything that Bernard Tomic says. He is a never-was that will do anything to blame others for and/or deflect attention away from his own shortcomings.

Yours sincerely
The Australian Public (well at least this member of it)

3 top-10 wins in 2015 says differently...

May be one to deflect blame a lot, but I think that what he says about Hewitt and Tennis Australia at large, isn't the worst thing in the world at all.

Especially with Kokkinakis refusing to back Hewitt in.

The media seems to have it out for Tomic... Not sure what way that swings, but the reaction of some of Australia's best players is quite telling, to me at least.

If you want to see how footy was played in the "good old days" try this. Grand Final Tasmania 1911
I gather you had to wear a hat or you wouldn't be admitted. :p Interesting, though I'd have like to see more of the game. Both sides wore strips to celebrate the state emblem of the Tasmanian Tiger???

You had no shortage of customers if you were a hat maker back in those days. Yes it is a pity there is not more on field footage but I was surprised about what I did see because I thought it would be take a mark, go back take your kick and a bit static. Yet there were guys playing on from the mark and running on several times.

Has anyone holidayed in Coron , Palawan , Philippines ?

Looking for advice on where to stay , things to do (island hopping tours etc etc)

Hotels in Philippines seems so expensive compared to Thailand/Cambodia , $ 200.00 + AUD for something half decent or 3-4 times as much.

Any advice greatly appreciated

Cheers
