It is actually strictly controlled by the medical profession, and in fact only a relatively small percentage of those identified as having Gender Dysphoria actually go on to undergo full reassignment. ;)
Try telling that to Asia, a cheap Flight, couple of Thousand Bart, a quick snip and tuck, Bobs your Uncle,     .....well maybe its not Bob anymore and He/She/it (delete as necessary) doesn't have an Uncle anymore, maybe an Auntie?    ... Im so curious, Im mean confused.  :D

Its a pity they never printed an updated one for the facelift cars etc. I realise there's not a lot of difference with the later cars but it would have been handy to have..
I'll let Tim Martin know.  ;)

Agreed, kind offer, will help someone out.  :y

Got mine (a Real One) from Whetherspoons recently.  :)  ;D

Well, kind off.

Was in one of the Whetherknives having a drink with some Mates, the part where we were sitting was quiet a comfy soffa in a kind of Brick and Brack and massive Book Case on the Wall, one of my Mates comented on whether the Books were worth anything and would there be any Vaulable Auction Classics hidden in them,          ......then there it was, staring at me, tucked away between a load of other Books, 'The Vauxhall Omega Haynes Workshop Manual'  ;D

Wont say what happened next.  ;)

Actually, in a lot of cases, the Chinky sellers are quicker.

I ordered something chavtastic from a chinky egayer, item in China, arrived today, less than 10 days, or 6 business days.

I ordered some ratchet spanners from the well known Chinky knocking shop, Banggood, at the same time, that also turned up today (buy courier - how do they do it for what I paid :o).


The pack of nuts I ordered from a UK company based up North at the same time is still not here.
Various reasons. the Chinese Gov subsidizes or pays in full a lot of the Shipping cost for Export Merchindise to promote there Export Economy, Chinese and Hong Kong Post also have some excellent shipping deals with the big Courier Players, in Particular USA, Europe and the rest of Asia, they will fill a Cargo or Air Freight Container, once full it sits outside the Airports or Shipyards and then gets sold onto the Shipping or Airlines as a cheapest Bucket Seat type option when available, that in turn get handled by the Courier or gets sent directly to UK Warehouses (normally just outside Heathrow, Hayes or Uxbridge) and is then Couriered or Posted on for peanuts.

Sometimes you see on some of these Bigger Chinese Sellers an option on which Warehouse Ship from, ie, Hong Kong, Chinese or USA, Europe Warehouses, but in actual fact its all from the same Warehouse but just shipped differently or on different time scales dependent on which Chinese or HK Gov is footing the bill, Customs and which Courier is being used.

I had occasions where Ive ordered some tat from China, with say a week difference on the items and the both turn up on the same day, or same day but different couriers  :D, down side is whilst we'll getting all this cheap tat from China with almost Free Delivery, if its the wrong item or doesnt work then its starts to get expensive to return it.  :(

I would say if its 6 years old then then its probably Cat5e, that stuff has been the standard for quiet a while now and still gets used today within the Industry.

As Fuse19 says if it is the older Cat5 spec then upgrade it, but I personally wouldnt bother upgrading from 5e to 6.

Also assuming that if some of it is running outside the House then its the External Spec with the additional covering, normally Black in colour, if it isnt then again upgrade it.

If you need some External Cat5e, and its a short run, Ive probably got some leftover from a drum kicking around you can have, just let me know and cover the Postage or possibly we could meet up somewhere.   ;)

What year? PFL/MFL or FL

Your probably right, but when it comes to someone parting with money and me having box something up and then making a trip to the Post Office to send far away to the land of the North, I tend not to assume anything.  ;) :)

Problem is Lizzie is we seem to going backwards in terms of REAL Sound Quality is this modern age of ours, most of the these so called Bluetooth Devices or Mini Pod Speakers peeps use to deliver there Sounds today are far from what we would term as HiFi in the old days.

Started my Electonics Career as a Sound Engineer in a Studio then a HiFi / Audio Engineer and whilst then I would had to have listened to some Snap, Crackle and Hiss the quality far out performs most of the modern mini and portable junk sold these days

The real tragedy is that music is now being mastered to suit shitty Bluetooth speakers so it sounds appalling no matter what you play it on. It's a good job I don't listen to much music that was recorded past the '80s. ::)

You can't change the laws of physics. If you want decent sound reproduction, you need to give over a significant chunk of living room space to speakers. People of today can't be @rsed with that, so end up with god awful sound bars, or even echo dots and the like as their music source.

They got blown away when they hear a decent system, but then say they'd like to hear it from a smaller box, as if that's even remotely plausible. ;D
Some people just tap their feet, hum along and get on with their life.
Ah, yes the Singers and the Worders we used to call them.  ;D

Oh, I like this one, turn it Up, then start Singing over the top of it so loudly that they actually drown out the original music.

Then the Worders, knows absolute every words in all the Songs, but ask them anything about the Musical Arrangement or the presence of the Music and they wouldn't have a clue.

After all he is a professional IT guy who would fit a 21st century system to my car, then hiss through his teeth as he tells me how much he is going to charge for his work! :D ;D ;)
As well you know, my Omega has a NCDC2013 for in car entertainment ;).  But I won't use a wired in FM Modulator.

I didn't know that TB.  I thought you of all people would have a state of the art, 21st century, computer controlled entertainment system. Certainly not a prehistoric device like the NCDC 2013 like I have :o :o :D :D :D ;)
