  1. Speed awareness course

    I trialled this when we brought it in, and like you I thought it was very good. The whole point is to get you thinking about what you're doing. Don't think the council has anything to do with it though. Certainly here the courses and invitations are decided upon by the police. The company that do it, also do the courses for a number of other forces.

    Excellent, here's hoping he runs and they have to send the hairy land shark after him.

    Sadly I didn't get a drive of the car, but according to the boss, it's veeerrryy nice, and quick. I did get a test in the Skoda VRS though......stunning handling, bit noisy though. And yup, if I could afford it, it would be my choice of car. Performance car wise I've only driven the Volvo T5, T6, Skoda Superb 3.6ltr V6, Range Rover Sport and the Skoda VRS. They're all different, the T5 needs treating with respect. As my advanced driving instructor told us, you can do things in a T6, try it in a T5 and you'll come off the road, torque steering is the big thing you notice between them. I tend to spend the majority of my time in a T6 these days, but I do enjoy the T5 just to keep my hand in with manual clutch and less driver help from the DSTC. T6 is good, it'll keep up with most things, for those it can't we have the MD902. My favourite is the Skoda Superb, stunning handling and power. Nice interior, with lots of space.

  8. CPU frequently running at 100%

    This is the company I use for bits, you'll find you're money will stretch much further doing it yourself. Computer Supplies and PC Components from Novatech I think the only original thing on my PC World puter is the plug and case !
  9. CPU frequently running at 100%

    Have you considered building yourself a new PC? It's really not that hard to do. PC's are modular, I've upgraded my PC's over the years with new motherboards, processors, memory, power supplies and graphics cards. Theres a ton of websites that will talk you through it.
