Hello Kim and thank you for your reply.

Nothing in the material that led me to the list said anything about it's being 
WA-oriented. I understood it to be a national thing.

Several people have now told me about the username/password but I can still 
not find anything in any of the subscripton material to tell me that.

I don't have a problem with the list being hosted in WA; it was just that I 
guess I expected such a significant topic with such government association to 
be hosted in the east. My apologies to WA.

As someone else pointed out, there have been some strange activities 
associated with the new .au setup so the troubles that I had getting going 
made me wonder whether I had been misled somewhere along the line.

Hopefully I can now return to the sideline and learn from future posting to 
this list.

Cheers and thanks,
Stephen Davies
