    What is your hobby?

    Just as badly as a standard CX500 - which is a good result as it could have been a lot worse! Nah, it actually handles fine, with a low C of G, long wheelbase and Front Axle Reactive Trail Suspension which is adjustable for rake/trail, ride height, shock linkage ratio and preload/damping it`s...

    Cashless society?

    I`ve had a £10 note in my wallet that must of been there for the last 6 months! This is partly due to the `thing` over the last year and shops insisting on card payments, i don`t mind paying for items with card exclusively but it does seem strange with minor items of a quid or so. ...and i don`t...

    What is your hobby?

    ^^It certainly was, and still is! I prefer `Gullepumpe` which is German for `liquid manure pump` (origin: German bike magazine cartoon).. Here is one of mine, it`s slightly modified...

    What is your hobby?

    Is that a CX500 engine in your 3-wheeler, Baxlin? Two of my motorbicycles are CX`s - 650`s, though. How do you find it in the trike?

    What is your hobby?

    I fly a paramotor.. .......and i have four motorcycles, but i`m not going to post any pictures because they`re horrible ratty old things and most users of this forum with shiny MB`s would have an apoplectic fit if they allowed their gaze to rest upon the visually offensive content within.

    I can smell gas............

    Blimey, there`s a lot of drama queens on here! Calm down, calm down, i already said that the leak stopped when the gas valve was closed so leaving it until today was perfectly safe. The man came out this morning and found the leak(s) and it`s all fixed now.

    Spitfire flyover.

    I have a RR Merlin piston as a side stand `foot` on one of my motorbicycles..... My wife was at the coast near Lee-on-the-Solent this week and saw the Spit flying out of Solent Airport. I was at a motorbike doo recently near Headcorn, we had a free weekend-long flying display - all day -...

    I can smell gas............

    A neighbour phoned us to inform us that he could smell gas from my wife`s fathers house. My wife went over and sure enough evidence of the obnoxious odour could be detected emitting from the gas meter cupboard on the outside of the house. She turned the gas off at the valve and she is sure that...

    Recovering a file from Windows desktop on a corrupted HDD?

    Yep, found the file i was looking for but unfortunately it didn`t seem to have all the data i had entered into it for the year or so before the old laptop died so it was a fruitless search, thanks anyway.

    Recovering a file from Windows desktop on a corrupted HDD?

    My old laptop died recently, `no bootable device found` on startup was one of the problems with it. The HDD wasn`t completely dead and i managed to retrieve all my files by using an external HDD docking station - except for a few files which were located on the Windows OS desktop... I can see...

    External HDD for backup.

    Hmmm, i think a cloud backup would be worth thinking about, a quick search reeveals £42 for a lifetime one-off subscription. Is that about right?

    External HDD for backup.

    My old laptop died, i bought a new one. `No bootable device` and `Media fail` were a couple of the faults i got when i tried to start it. Although the old harddrive seems a bit ill i have been lucky and managed to get all my files off it by using it with a docking station. It`s been a very...

    Regretted or just why!? auction purchases

    I once bought a hang-glider on a whim because i thought they looked cool, and a false leg. They were both a complete waste of money as i never used either of them....

    Email notifications - multiple accounts?

    Thanks, at the moment i`ve added the three main email accounts to my iphone (i don`t really need the others....). I`ll look into the Gmail option for the laptop, cheers.

    Email notifications - multiple accounts?

    I have multiple AOL email accounts. I used to use the AOL desktop/software to check them all - i could log into one email username then use a drop-down menu ostensibly used to switch your username - but you could also see if any of the other accounts/usernames had any emails. AOL software has...
