Re: The most difficult aspect of Advanced Driving

Recognising the value of advice the first time it's given, and not having to wait until the 4th or more repetition [not necessarily from the same person] before it sinks in.

Re: Classic hot hatches

205 GTi was up there for me in terms of hot hatches. Never managed to have one, but did own 205 XS (which was my road rally car - surprised a lot of people how quick it was as it was very short geared!), followed by a 309 GTi - again used for road rallies. Then had a 405 Mi-16 for a bit. More recent...

Re: Posting pictures

I will have a look - however what that usually does is still load the original image and resize on the fly - which makes loading a page so much slower... Page loading is already slower than it needs to be since the img tags don't include picture size, which means when one selects the newest unread ...

Re: Posting pictures

I will have a look - however what that usually does is still load the original image and resize on the fly - which makes loading a page so much slower... the move is more and more towards larger original images (e.g. from mobiles at 8 - 12mb images) - I have very fast broadband here, even so with s...

Re: Posting pictures

Is there a way to add dynamic resizing? On other forums I can just stick up a link to a picture of any size, and if it's wider than the forum it's automatically reformatted to fit.

Re: Brake vs. Advanced Driving

My point was you aren't looking for the same level of progress in a 30 as you would in a quiet country road. I tend to use light and shade as I think the saying goes. I dunno, a busy city environment you can be working just as hard at trying to protect your space, optimise lane for progress (withou...

Re: Welcome & Approach

Your account has gone Brown, although if it hadn't, I wouldn't have been able to help any more, because I've now been removed from the admin list. Martin / JonT - you too? Thank you, and thanks Martin for deleting the account and posts. I am so glad that I did it now and didn't wait. I had a feelin...

Re: Welcome & Approach

Oh yes, I seem to have lost privileges over there. Maybe Rob noticed swathes of "value" disappearing? Bit impolite not to say anything about it.

Darren's last post over there perhaps adds a little enlightenment. ADUK as the new club driving...?

Re: Welcome & Approach

I have, and judging by the amount of access I now seem to have - not even to the public side - Martin has performed an excellent slash and burn. Not even my posts still exist. Your posts have gone, but not the replies when you've been quoted. It's a bit drastic, and something of a shame - there wer...
