  1. "Homework" Laptop - any suggestions?

    Have you tried removing the DIMMs? If they're the issue it may boot (slowly) and then at least you know it's just new memory required. Sometime just reseating them works.
  2. "Homework" Laptop - any suggestions?

    Is there a queue or is this a laptop free for all?
  3. Ordered a new S5 Coupe

    Yep - correct. Well remembered I'm occasionally driving the wife's car. Now 8 years old but still only 32k miles. Much more comfortable for the family than the S4. I don't miss the power but do miss the noise. We did ponder an S5 (when it had the 4,2) but decided an Avant worked better for the years of pushchairs and baggage.
  4. Ordered a new S5 Coupe

    Normally people call me a nobody behind my back! Welcome back Martin.
  5. Almost a new biker....

    Bazza + 600bhp/tonne? Dunno what you're worried about?
  6. MSV / Donington & Bedford

    Totally agree. It's also a shame those corporate days are gonna go as they were awesome but then I've not done one in 10 years and given the corporate gift restrictions these days I can't see that changing.
  7. MSV / Donington & Bedford

    I guess most people know that Palmer / MSV have secured the rights to use Donington for the next 20+ years. I think it's a good thing although the monopoly aspect is a bit of a concern. I'm sure it's not a cheap thing to do to buy the rights and then invest to ensure the big races go there etc. The below may explain where the funds are coming from. It looks like it's goodbye to Bedford aerodrome. No more trackdays and no more of those brilliant corporate days either
  8. It's nice and quick if they're already in a trailer and you just have to connect the truck.
  9. Slovakiaring : 1st - 3rd Sept '17

    JonC popped his track day cherry with us last year and has seriously got the bug so he must have enjoyed it. Three days on track (20min session every hour, 7 sessions a day) and there's instructors available Three nights in a hotel with breakfast Bikes/gear are put on artics in special stillages in Swindon the weekend before and you collect the weekend after the event. It's only £599 plus cheap flights/shared hire cars/beer & food money, etc. I did my first track day as part of a three day Euro trip. The benefit over just doing a single UK one is that you learn the track and then you've loads of time to focus on improving your riding. Of course the weather should be better too. So far there's JonC, myself and 5 others in our group. Going in a group is a massive part of it. The banter, advice, looking out for each other etc
  10. My boy's new bike

    Great update and great pics. All looking good!
  11. An expensive Ford

    Give it 3-5 years and we'll all be kicking ourselves for not clubbing together to buy it.
  12. Genuine Ross Tech HEX+CAN VCDS cable

    If I upgraded mine then it's cheaper than buying fresh. It's ONLY $399 to get the unlimited VIN version.
  13. Genuine Ross Tech HEX+CAN VCDS cable

    I didn't either - it appears the replacements limit the number of cars you can connect to unless you pay $600. Wow! I guess I'll need to look after mine more and not lend it to people anymore otherwise it could be costly.
  14. Genuine Ross Tech HEX+CAN VCDS cable

    Shout if it ends up not sold. I've a buddy after one .... then I might get mine back!!!
