Glasgow Bin Lorry And Now This?

Seems awfully similar to me: http://www.dailymail...ht-injured.html

There doesn't seem to be any information out there of what happened exactly, but I'm sure the surviving passengers of the bus will be able to provide that information.

Two people have died so far, a young boy and an elderly woman.  

Lets hope there are no more fatalities and that there is a reasonable explaination for why a bus that shouldn't have been going more than 30MPH managed to smash head on into a Sainsbury's store.

What Are You Running?

In terms of operating system? 


I'm on Windows Vista Business for the desktop PC and Windows 7 Home Premium and Professional respectively for the Acer Aspire 5349 and HP ProBook 4515s.


Oh, and my mobile phone (Nokia Lumia 610) is running Windows Phone 7.8.


Yep, I'm a Microsoft fan!  Never owned an Apple/Macintosh device and never will.  Well, unless it was free or so cheap I could buy and make a profit selling on.

1997 Ford Fiesta - P719 Asa

This is a long shot, I know, but I am trying anything right now.


From 2008 to 2013 we owned the above mentioned vehicle, having sold her because of an expired MOT and poor financial situation.  I now want her back, but it isn't that simple. 


The DVLA website has no record of the registration mark, which I initially thought to mean it had been scrapped, but then I checked the registrations of a few vehicles we've had before that I know are scrapped and they showed up, so I'm not so sure.  I think that the registration number may have changed (personalised plate?) and that the car is still on the road.


It was sold to people in Aberdeen (or surrounding area) in February 2013 and they seemingly MOTd it immediately after taking ownership and sold it on around 2 weeks later.  I found this information here: http://www.ukvehicle.com/P719ASA/


As I say, this is a long shot, but who knows, maybe the new owner (if he/she cared enough to change the reg no) is a member here, or somebody knows of them.  It's worth a try at least. 


You may be asking "why is he so bothered about an old MK4 Fiesta?", but if you think that then you'll never understand.  It was just a piece of metal, but it is a piece of metal I'd like back. 


Here is a picture from our ownership of "her":




If by some miracle the owner happens to read this, get in touch with me - I WILL buy the car from you and will pay a good price.

Well Guess What Just Appeared On My Taskbar!

Yep, the logo that so many have clicked on and downloaded...  The Windows 10 upgrade.

Just to be clear, I have no intention of clicking on it (not yet, at least) but now that I technically could upgrade, it has made me a little more interested in hearing how Win10 is coming along.

So, have any of you upgraded and if so is the OS getting better, or is it still a case of "avoid at all costs"?
