Re: Oh no it didn't...

My cat wandered into my local pub - four times in one day and was chased out by four different dogs, so I'm told! Thankfully he avoided being run over as it's on the main street ...

Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

The main difference as far as I can see is the calipers are painted red! The discs are not drilled.

Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

Thanks, I've never heard of EBC but then I no longer do my own car maintenance! My car has Brembo brakes if that makes any difference. As my Saab 9-5's discs pitted much more badly than the four...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

The 1980s Aston Martin Lagonda had Marina door handles as well I believe which didn't do much for its street cred :).

I had a TR6 so the TR7 seemed like a poor follow-up! The legendary car (and...

Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

Thankfully my car doesn't have an electric parking brake. I had a Vauxhall Insignia hire car for a few days which did, and thought it a daft idea, like the American cars that have a foot-operated...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

A friend of mine might disagree on that. A friend of his had a TR7 which needed a bump start one cold morning. When he dropped the clutch the back axle detached itself from the rest of the car ...

Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

The Saab's rear discs did pit rather badly, not sure about the current car. If I knew it was down to my driving I'd be able to do something about it, but the garage says it's most likely due to...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

There's no danger of me voting for either of the major parties as they currently stand!

Thanks for the quote from Parris, Jim, I think he is one of the more credible commentators around at the...

Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

Surely a vehicle as poncy and expensive as a Range Rover would have brake pad wear warning lights?


I just noticed a note on the invoice for the recent service for my Alfa that the rear brake...

Re: total lunar eclipse on Sunday / Monday morning

I have one Zuiko OM lens that can be set to "beyond infinity" but nearly all have a stop at infinity which makes it easy to set them to that. The problem with most modern AF lenses is they tend to be...

Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

This thread seems to have rapidly degenerated into Monty Python's "Four Yorkshiremen" sketch! Yeah, we lived in't shoebox in t'middle o't'road :D. Meanwhile I feel very much a youngster here; I'm...

Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

Well, I will admit to being retired (just!) but I don't appreciate being called a dinosaur. Our shops are two minutes walk away and the prices are reasonable enough to make it pointless spending an...

Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

I still shop for food most days. No vast supermarkets within 45mins drive of here but we have most of what we need in the shops on the doorstep. We have a proper independent butcher whose local...

Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

Another thing that drives me nuts is the dumbing down of almost everything to extraordinary levels of puerility. I have just been forced to upgrade (sic) Skype from v7 to v8 and now there's a big...

Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

Since most of these big businesses have got big through economies of scale and thus lower prices, and everybody wants something for (next to) nothing, I think we have only ourselves to blame, but I...

Re: Anyone print A3 ?

The Epson 3880 (and its predecessor the 3800 which I own) were cut-down versions of the 4800. This had a roll paper adaptor and cutter. I don't know what the maximum size it could print though,...

Re: Half ar-ed email from Olympus

Affinity Publisher is supposed to be to InDesign what Affinity Photo is to Photoshop, and Affinity Designer is to Adobe Illustrator (i.e. a vector graphics editor).

I think InDesign is similar to...

Re: Half ar-ed email from Olympus

I cut my DTP teeth on PageMaker. I believe it eventually got bought out by Adobe. It was silly money at the time so for home use I bought Serif PagePlus v1.0 which was an attempt to do PageMaker on a...

Re: Half ar-ed email from Olympus

I remember the lorem ipsum stuff from the early 1980s when desktop publishing was just starting to appear. The Aldus PageMaker user manual was full of it!

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

An independent opinion from another country not involved on either side is worth listening to. The trouble with UK residents' opinions is that they are coloured because they are directly involved....

Re: Invisible Mode

T'aint me neither. I assume the default setting for a new user is "off", and if somebody deliberately turned it on they're not likely to tell us are they!
