Spotted this message today - I imagine that they don't appear too often.

What is it? Is it the sort of thing that desperatly needs saving? I
probably can't pick it up myself, as it is in the wrong state and I
suspect a car with a trailer may still have trouble bringing it back, but
I hope there is someone here from Melbourne or Sydney who can handle it.
