Another egg hater.
Except I like custard but could not eat a boiled egg as I would throw up.
Just get one then.
But they are not a normal car, they are a utility vehicle and very good at that. They are not crap.
Howver if you want comfort buy the same age Discovery.
I had to do this with some electronics.
Removed hard disk
Put on ground
Parked on it
Chucked in electronics skip.
Served me right for not getting a Humax then, as the manufacturers refused to update the Freeview box firmware, even though hardware was OK.
Learnt my lession, only buy Humax PVRs now.
Sorry cannot see the point in fake meats.
Cows are not an endangered species and I would rather eat that than formed mould.
Work Christmas meal, a small puddle of slop with cream, bacon, some other shit and a bit of sprout.
Not everyone hates sprouts.
Not everyone likes bacon.
Not everyone wants cream in their roast.
Oh also insufficient potatos and the turkey was not great.
Food fads drive me mad, there are a lot of foods i do not like and they keep infecting things I do like.
Bacon, thin strips of fatty pork (I can't eat lumps of fat) fills with preservatives turned into hard chewy things.
Ham, a piece of pork ruined. We have freezers, stick pork in there and roast it don't fill it full of chemicals.
Peas with everything, I hate them, if a meal comes with them I ask for an alternative (usually sweetcorn) but why not steak chips and sprouts?
Why does a chicken need to be wrapped in salted smoked very fatty pork strips?
Why do nice juicy butchers sausages need the same?
It would be easier to be a veggie than a bacon hater.
Another form of stealth.
Hide your Buccaneers underneath a low flying Vulcan
Also the had to get into the Harriers domain and not theirs.
Nothing really wrong with Trent.
Already pretty fuel eficient and I bet they are working on improvements.
Do not need new airframe for a new version of existing engine.
Seems stupid to me
Used to be a lot of railway track, got used on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, where it was laid is still called Defford Straight. Just north of Chicken Curve.
Been there before. Went there before the house was opened.
Definately signs of some wartime stuff there.
We got in for free as well as at the time NT members
Netware vs rubbish servers
Clipper vs FoxPro
DRDOS vs MSDOS
Concurrent Dos vs Windows
XP users vs MS
Plus many others I have forgotten
Slam the brakes on as the logs will be travelling at speed and I can stop first.
I find a way of dealing with motorway boredom but comes with licence risks.
It is see how fast I can go.
Audi twat mobile
Proper 4x4s (from Solihull) are happy to get on verges, the muddier the better.
1) Stingray, with Troy Tempest
2) Voyage to the bottom of the sea, with Seaview and the Flying Sub
Flying sub still works as well
Recently recaptured some Beta tapes from the 1980s and 90s, they held up VERY well, some camera footage from mid 80s held up very well.
The DVD below has 3 qualities of footage, some in Vhs and captured with wrong field order (very jittery), lots of decent SD footage (guessing DV or industrial kit), and some of my Beta stuff, carefully captured with correct field order. Played back on the VCR which recorded it.
I used good quality tapes (last few Sony Pro-X L500) in a F1 portable.
Most of my camera footage is on my 1TB drive D now
I remember that, one of the first series I watched in stereo (NICAM).
There is no way that a Helicopter Lorry cross is not cool.
Farscape = upvote
Yes a high point, I rented a lot. Saw loads, even got a fully loaded VCR with HiFi sound (cost me £800 as well, from Sony, best 1/2" domestic VCR in UK).
However I did rent them all in Beta, most transfers were pretty good as most were duplicated rather than printed.
Remember takling a portable VCR and Robocop to a film night and making one lad sick as he was very squeamish.
Yes some tapes were magnetically contact printed.
The Icon, I prefer the first film, first saw rented at home.
If the original is good, high quality copies are possible.
There are good transfers of 1960s stuff.
Have no excuse for not producing Linux versions of their games.
Because it is a lot less work porting code written to run on BSD to run on Linux, than from Windows to Linux.
Gaming on BSD?
Yes lots of us do it. But it is not obvious. I have devices with Orbis OS, Cell OS on them, both are BSD based and both sold very well. Both have lots of really good games.
So if you want a game on Linux and the publishers are not interested, if there is a Playstation version remind them that the Playstation OSes are forms of Unix, just like Linux.
For you may be, but for many of us we are happy with consoles.
My work PC is on 7 and staying that way, but if I end up getting 10 I see something XBox the PC support people will be getting it in the neck.
Already prepared the comments.
But all revolves around
"But I have a Playstation!"
There are loads of decent DSTV boxes out there with CAM slots.
Both open and Freesat.
I also expect that their encryption is broken but not leaked. Some very clever techies in Cheltenham.
To get rid of the leeches?
I had forgotten about the existance of them.
I did not want to be reminded.
At least he admits it.
Don't knock all Tory/Conservatives.
They are not all barking. Only some.
Some are very good politicians, well Ken Clarke is. Pity that most of the cabinet and shadow cabinet are not.
I don't trust any of the party sites
I don't want Theresa May spouting off a cliche ridden speech. Nor Jeremy Corbyn trying to be a superstar, nor Farage trying to emulate a war time leader.
I find that for politcal information I now HAVE to rely on the TV broadcasters as the printed press is mainly unusable now.
You see all the rubbish headlines and total crap being spewed by many papers.
You think what rubbish.
Then you find people quoting it, believing it, and agreeing with it.
And the same people are actually allowed to vote.
I find the EU exit supporting gutter press the worst. Nasty vindictive and very unpleasant.
I hope all the other party ones are as well?
Am I alone in wanting to punch Farage repeatetly, in the face?
No laws broken by their victim.
Leaking confidential and personal information.
And people wonder why trust in the Police is at an all time low.
Right pair of sleaseballs
thermite is also used for welding
I thrashed the nuts of a Sunbeam hatch for years. Well maintained, regularly saw 7000rpm, kept it to around 140,000 miles, took it off the speedo.
Not bad for an old push rod lump.
Took off road due to spares taking too long, in end it was the long wait for a clutch cable. Time for a newer car.
I do remember the Novas
1.3 not much different to 1.2
Not sure if I have been in a Corsa
Many years ago I had a job where the pool vehicle was a shitty Ford of some variety and the gear lever gate was lopsided.
It used to keep going 1 to 4 and the clutch was an on off switch. Handled like a turd and the controls were terrible.
I destroyed either the clutch or gearbox. As the car I had at the time had a gear lever directly connected to the box, rather than connected by elastic, and a clutch which was progressive, I treated any inferior transmissions with the distain they deserved.
I managed to break a few Fords until they got an Astra van, so much better!
Last time I had to drive a bad car it was motorway in 4th because the gearlever stuck in my leg in 5th.
Blue Planet 2 was worth my licence fee.
Fantastic TV BBC does best
Except they will probably employ a junior Turdoch for a while
Aghhh I said pay TV
As I said the average pay TV channel is no better than many of the free ones on the Freeview and Freesat systems.
I did not say to replace Freeview and Freesat, just pay TV.
Amazon or Netflix can very happily replace Sky or Virgin.
Doesn't stop me watching BBC 1 2 4 News 24
From what I have come across unless you are addicted to sport stick and want more than the free stuff, go to the main streamers, Netfix and Amazon.
Most of those pay channels are no better than the cruft which fills Freeview and Freesat, lost have irritating logos.
Being able to select a programme and watch it when I want, no adverts, no logo, no local hard disk storage required.
I think they are onto a winner.
I think we will be OK.
Anyway if one ISP dropped it we would all change ISP.
Why does your most right wing party have the colours of the Communist era?
As to politics, us the British are going to reclaim the word Conservatives.
Your so called ones are nothing like our main stream ones*.
* Look at ones like Clarke, Soubry, Timpson. Wollaston, Major, Cameron just for starters. Ignore nutters like the minister for the 1800s. I could probably name a lot more with a short search.
Even our most right wing zealots (Gove) want to improve the environment rather then bring back burning of coal.
Can someone think of a better name for the US red team?
Horrible horrible things.
They call it mince meat, and there is no effing meat!
We have moved onto a chicken for Christmas Dinner, a large free range one, tastes nice and a lot less than a turkey.
Sprouts are an essential.
Never tried goose.
Tons of roast potatos
My wife would be happy with the 1kg of chipolatas I have bought.
be the first person to land on the Sun
Now the real question is
Has Andy Weir seen the Smash advert?
I had a few but only the late version did this.
As the car I had at the time was popular with Police.
I could carve through heavy traffic better than any BMW as it was not my fault that my silver painted car was the same colour as a next door country traffic cars.
