  1. I just added that to my reading list, cheers!
  2. looking forward to seeing this one, Adro!
  3. @viskop get in there!
  4. tidy work, Nathan! Subscribed. Looking forward to seeing this thread develop. I'm picking it's a retrospective, that we're catching up with where you've gotten to?
  5. nice work, Greg! I'll award you the 'best of both worlds' prize!
  6. Yeah, that's basically ransomeware!
  7. Nathan, www.flickr.com is worthy of your investigation, as an online repository for your images. I've been using them for 12 years now; nothing like those dodgy gits at photobucket.
  8. I like Blurple.
  9. I tried to upload one (from my desktop machine) a couple of hours ago too, got a slightly different error (unable to upload, in essence). am able to link to an online photo without issues, though. Hope that helps.
  10. Kelvin's open on Saturday mornings I found him on the recommendation of a friend who's very fussy with his car collection, and found Kelvin's pricing sharper than standard BTC. I value the relationship and individual more than the branding on the sign outside
  11. good thinking, Kyu. Cory, I think it's pretty hard to go past Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE003's. They're often on buy one, get the second half price (which is basically buy three, get four)... I have run them for more than 20,000kms on my e46 (225/45R17 and 245/40R17), and have more than 5000kms on my e60 (245/40/R18) and find them superb in the wet, quiet and grippy in the dry, and wear well to boot! What's not to like for a tyre that's no more expensive than the mid-range korean alternatives? I think they're superb, particularly at the money you pay for them. I go to Kelvin (owner) at Bridgestone Torrens Terrace, he's excellent on alignment and I find him great to deal with. HTH.
  12. I visited D.C. A couple of times back in the 90's, and being a good car enthusiast (and running a VW GTi at the time), was looking to pick up car parts. Asking in the office 'hey is such and such place far from here' I was lead to a wall map, they showed the the destination, then devided the map into quadrants. "Nope, you don't want to go there. These two zones, they're safe. These two zones, you're likely to get shot. Don't go there. Clear?". Back then it was the murder capital.
  13. I just want to take this opportunity to say, you guys are fab. I'll have a more detailed read through this weekend, so that I can get the right solution together. thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge. And thanks in advance for your assistance.
