  1. Wopps 918

    The Australian version of EVO is out (we used to be able to get the UK one, but no more) and yes, there is the Woppum batmobile posed next to a NSX in what looks like a hangar... I will get to read it later today.
  2. Harry Metcalfe (EVO founder now at Jaguar SVO) in his latest Harry's Garage - walks around the Geneva MotorShow and shows you how the active aero works on the back wing. Very clever...
  3. new

    Welcome! New victims, I mean enthusiasts are always welcome! To start off: What part of the planet do you hail from? What sort of car(s) do you own/drive? There is at least one thread where you should post a photo or two.
  4. New RS5

    This one. 600KW of twin turbo V8 and hybrid drivetrain. from: http://www.pistonheads.com/news/ph-germancars/mercedes-amg-gt-concept--geneva-2017/35881 ...and what looks like the production version
  5. Pretty mad stuff. The active aero is impressive - they have been watching Pagani.
  6. Encrypted external drives

    Fill yer boots: https://datalocker.com/product-category/harddrives/ I've been looking at these for work: https://datalocker.com/product/datalocker-dl3-fe-fips-edition/
  7. RS3 - Saloon!

    repairable write off?
  8. 6 Minutes - sounds like an inside job...
  9. Mercedes 190E 2.3 16

    Not too shabby. What's the market like for those in the UK? I'd have thought they'd be getting as rare as rocking horse poo.
  10. Evernote Security & Privacy

    Send them a rocket and see if you get a response back... TBH I do not think they ever touted it as being very secure - the free version for example when I first looked didn't even use SSL/TLS between the client and servers. Backlash has ripple and splash effects: https://evernote.com/legal/privacy.php https://evernote.com/security/ https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-encrypt-your-files-2487243 etc. Will be interesting to see if folks like Google Keep and co start offering online "strong box" type capabilities.

    Welcome from Down Under!
  12. Evernote Security & Privacy

    Yeah, PITA for PDFs, but not too hard on a Mac. Way more painful on a Windoze box. I'm apparently paid up till late 2018, so will bide my time and see if anything else comes along. I use Boxcryptor for all my "cloud" file stuff, but keeping things as files is also nowadays painful - even if it is available on all my machines, tablets nad phones (using a AES256 4096 bit key). Evernote's similarly useful as it too is on every device I have and thus sync'd.
  13. Evernote Security & Privacy

    All my sensitive stuff is encrypted. They state that if you do that, content cannot be read or retrieved without the pass phrase - you lose it, you lose it.
  14. Cambridge Autogleam - 2011

    Very cool. I had something similar applied to my ML500 and it is an amazing thing.
  15. Haynes motor museum

    So where is this wonderland located?
