Edition 207: 27th May 2010
Hi ExplorOz Reader,
It's the last week of May and our long-term fans may remember this is when we celebrate David’s birthday. This year to celebrate, we're offering all buyers that make an online purchase from the ExplorOz Shop between now and COB Tuesday 1st June FREE postage on any size order (Australian deliveries only), plus a BONUS ExplorOz Notepad.
The ExplorOz Places database is constantly evolving and this week we have
officially released two new features! You now have access to enlarge any ExplorOz
Map to full screen. Simply click the full screen icon
(at the top right of screen) to switch to full screen mode. This new featue applies to all areas across the site where ExplorOz mapping windows are available, which includesPlaces, Shop, EOTrackMe and of course Trek Notes. In addition we have added short cut keys to navigate
maps, using the arrow keys on your keyboard to move around the map, and the + and – buttons on your keyboard to zoom in and out!
Proxy Bids Now Open
Yes it's that time of year again, when we open up bidding by proxy for the annual auction of the ExplorOz Memorabilia photo canvas print. The live auction takes place at the National Gathering at Wiluna, however if you are unable to attend you may enter your bid by proxy. To make a bid by proxy, simply member message Member - Sir Kev & Darkie with your maximum
bid. Proxy bids will be accepted effective immediately up to the evening of 18th June 2010. Remember - do not bid
via Member Message if you will be attending.
