Way back in the day I made the address medlir@mindless.com at iname.com and it was good... it forwarded to my real email address and nothing more. Last year or so, they decided that email forwarding would no longer be a free service which was a pain in the ass since I had almost all my email going to that address and I didn't want to use the webmail feature all the time. So I weaned most of my email over to other accounts since then but some still ends up there. So today I logged in to find a decent amount of email including from my grandma and cousin Jamie... oops. But among these emails was this one, which just boggles me...

I received the following advise from the shire today -

The shire advises that Waste Management (WA) will be transporting dangerous
goods through the shire between 27 May and 7 June.

In case of an incident occurring, brigades should not endevour to clear the
site but rather notify FESA on Channel 24 or call Northam Base to make the
call if you do not have channel 24.

The materials will be transported on the Great Eastern Highway. Dangerous
goods include low level radio active, arsenic and mercury.

Any queries regarding this advice should be directed to Bert Munyard at the
shire during normal office hours

Please pass this advice on to members who do not have email

It appears to have orginated in Oz... maybe I should look up Irishtown in Oz and see what I find. :P


That is, indeed, extremely strange!

Do you live too close to hobbits, perhaps?


Sadly no. Or at least, not as far as I know. :D

Like I said, it appears to have come from someone in Australia which is even more curious as I've never even been to Australia let alone live there. :P
