  1. Hello, We used to be able to list our Playstation and xbox live handles on our info bit below our avatar photos. Any chance this can be implemented again? Cheers.
  2. Too busy with geetars eh? ;-) I think we all lose the love at times. I am in C love right now and can't find one to buy! :-(

    I generally agree with the comments made, I was merely trying to add some balance. The area where the damage is on the bottom right of the bumper would indicate she was reversing out of a space to end up facing 90degrees from where she started; her back to the ATMs and facing the exit. It would also appear she was reversing out of a disabled space, indicating she might be a blue badge holder (not the Peter type). I shan't get into discussing the issue of people with disabilities being given the opportunity to drive (personally I have no problem with it, I however feel differently about the elderly but that's by the by) but it might provide food for thought. Maybe she has a case of elephantiasis of the right foot, making her more susceptible to getting her foot stuck. :geek:

    We all have bad days .
  5. I was very disappointed to hear about Sky getting its claws into what should be a free to view service. It is plain wrong, and a sorry state of affairs. However you cannot really attack the Beeb for it. The BBC is always taking flak and people complain about the cost of the license fee but to me for the sheer quantity and quality of output I think it is a bloody bargain. I think it's days in it's current format are numbered and it will be a very, very sad day when it is broken up, sold off and forced to show adverts. I miss the BBC living abroad but still access it's services frequently; news and sports websites, BBC news 24, listen again and live to the radio, some cheeky downloads of shows - mostly Top Gear. Word service broadcasting was recently stopped in Dubai due to risings costs and it was quite a story here I can tell you, one interesting this too was that it wasnt just British expats kicking off about it but pretty much everyone who appreciated the impartial nature and quality content. And sorry Ben-B but I feel that those are pretty misguided and ignorant comments. Your complaints about them showing repeats make little sense in this argument too, showing repeats will save money so they have more to spend on new programming for their flagship channels. The BBC is obligated to provide public service broadcasting so has to produce quality entertainment that appeals to all who pay for a license. BBC 4 may not be to everyone's taste but it is hugely popular with a great deal of people, as visual equivalent of radio 4, covering arts, culture, debate. The cost of BBC 4 per annum is less than the cost of broadcasting an F1 season. BBC 1xtra costs 11 million a year and 5 Live Extra just shy of 5. Dropping these are not really going to make much of a difference at all. 6music is excellent, in fact I believe the Beeb were going to drop it but received such a backlash they had to back down, they didn't realise quite how popular it is. Sacrificing Wimbledon or the Olympics! Seriously?!? It's a damn shame and a sign of things to come. Don't beat the BBC up about it, boycott Sky. License fee works out at about 12 quid a month. The least amount you can pay Sky to get the F1 races is as posted previously £31. Or £145 v's £372 a year. I think I'd rather pay a few quid extra a month towards the license fee, keep F1 and save having a feck ugly expensive dish stuck on the side of my castle.

  6. Rupert Murdoch has said he is touched by some of the messages left on Amy's phone
  7. Without a hint of irony, the Daily Mail today reported that the Oslo terrorist is an anti-Muslim extremist who posts lunatic right-wing nonsense on the Internet.
  8. Those on the right are one my favourite types of boob - I like to think of it as a button boob. Suspension talk seems very boring now.
  9. I quite liked the first A1 I saw, thought it could be a proper decent hot hatch, but agree 30k is utterly stupid money. Not only that but I had an A3 for a while and that had S-Tronic (DSG) and I'm quite sure the stick shown in the add is of the manual variety. I will also have to assume from the photos that the radio and sat nav screen is integrated into the instrument cluster entirely, don't like that one bit. I saw my first A7 yesterday. I just thought 'why?' I really don't see the point of it, and the back reminds me of a troll that's had the top of its head flattened. Audi is turning it to a marque for cnuts. I'd sooner drive a BMW now.
  10. I felt compelled to both Google and share. Cut of your jib Meaning One's general appearance and demeanour. Origin The jib of a sailing ship is a triangular sail set between the foretopmast head and the jib boom. Some ships had more than one jib sail. Each country had its own style of sail and so the nationality of a sailing ship, and a sailor's consequent opinion of it, could be determined from the jib.
  11. How about something like: Sorry it's a bit naff - but you get the idea.
  12. Here it is: http://the-corrado.net/showthread.php?29393-The-Forced-Induction-16V-Thread It used to be stickied but not anymore since the forum went through the change. Liking the all white - has a motorsport feel about it.
