Haha, touchy sir....



No matter what - at least you've got a lot of moral support...even if a lot of it is from the Interwebs! 

(We're real people too)

Thanks guys, Gérard (!Removed! phone won't let me spell it without the enunciation lol) thanks for those kind words. It's been a tough fight but I can't take all the credit, if it wasn't for my wife / fiance / girlfriend (whichever title she had at the time) I wouldn't be here to tell the tale today! The comedy aspect is serious but it's seriously needed at times like these and it's good your family have that positivity and sending humour! I hope things keep improving for you all.

Phil, perhaps it's the age difference so maybe over time I will hit those benchmarks, obviously getting older you lose some strength naturally but perhaps I will enlist in a gym and do all I can to keep the strength as long as possible, but it's good to have other real world experience.

Ian, it really is about adapting your life to the circumstances as you say. We need to keep it all going in the right direction. I suppose we are lucky to have the ability to adapt, whether we can use it or not.

I hope these three women haven't met!!


No wonder I'm single - you're hogging 'em all :P

Shoot me now I went in the corsa with woman again. Worst automotive experience ever.

On a scale of 1 - 10, how attractive is she?

Probably end up with one of those as my hire car...

What's wrong with an Audi Corsa?
That well known small hot-hatch from the VAG?

Other than the fact it's not an Audi...it is a Corsa...and is only hot when it's on fire...and do I really have to spell out the Volkswagen Audi Group joke?

I know what's caused mine - I was warned as a kid that I could have these problems for life. My liver was quite badly affected which is directly linked to joint health (if you have a very high LF it can dry your joints out). I tried things like cod liver oil (bleugh and useless for me). Poor balance is due to my legs just not working at times (see above lol)

If the frequency of it ever increases without plausible reason (like being ill, say with [man] flu or even struggling to find sea/land legs lol)

And to be fair, my memory has improved somewhat since I started seejng a counsellor - so that was stress related. I'm now at the point where I just want to get back to work, get qualified and then re-assess my career options (hate being away for 4-months stuck in a giant baked-bean tin lol)

I can't find the articles I read - I'll have a look when I've found my laptop charger lol

Personally, I think de-restrict 3-lane+ Motorways and improve driver training. If I remember rightly, German learner drivers have a separate Autobahn test

#432868 More Speed Camera Goodness

Posted by SeanW on 29 November 2014 - 11:22 PM

Surely accidents are more likely at higher speeds though? Yes if you hit a stationary vehicle at 70 or 130, you'll be dead, but at 70 you might be able to swerve out of the way. At 130 you'd probably take out about 3 other vehicles in front of the one you hit.

Research suggests that the majority of people will drive to the conditions.

Those that don't are the one's who still come screaming up the outside lane of a motorway at 130 in the rain. Think it was one of the Scandinavian countries that abolished all speed limits outside of residential areas. The accident rate dropped - they attributed it to the fact that because there was no limit, there was no target, and as I just mentioned - people drove to the conditions

#432863 Unfit To Drive/drunk In Charge Of A Vehicle

Righty oh...note to self
Next time you stumble out the pub at half past 9, having had 2 shandies and a glass of wine, and you realise that your house keys are in the glovebox, approach the conveniently located Copper (assume for this that the officer in question isn't Clive, but is female), and in best Soberese ask "Offi-*hic*shur! Would you do me a favour? Be a darl and grab us me keys - I don't wanna *hic* - you have pretty eyes - *hic* get locked up for being in charge of a motor veee*hic*le whist *sobs*dr, drk...pished*sniffle*"

Then wait an hour for your taxi before realising you never ordered one

Sorry, but the thread is pretty heavy reading lol
Needed something to break it up lol

Tachometer/rev counter?

#432618 Chinese Units

Posted by SeanW on 28 November 2014 - 10:50 PM

I've just looked up the G2110.
Whilst I'll have to swap the fascia etc...I'm much happier with the fact it's a known brand, with a good website.

Some of the reviews are a bit hit & miss, but it appears that many people are trying to compare the cheap Eonon units to Pioneer units costing 2, 3 times as much.

Looking at the G2110 specifically, if I order it from the UK Website or Amazon (still through Eonon) it's £265. Go on the international site and it's £199? Seems odd...

Things it has going for it: it is Android, relatively well known brand, can be adapted for use with stalk controls, can be had for £200

Not sure
