I felt queasy on a sight seeing cruise on the river Ouse in York :D so a proper full on cruise would be my idea of hell on earth[or should that be hell on water?]
Big boats don't move as much ;)

Thanks to everyone for the texts, emails and PMs yesterday, much appreciated.

Apparently now I'm half century, I can sign up for a Parkinson approved life insurance plan, and join Saga.  I'll ask that Auto Addict fella, as he has had centuries of experience being over 50 :)

You're catching me up fast, there was a time when I was twice as old as you - I'm not anymore :P
No, you're now 4 times my age  :D

Pagid....

Sounds like a brand of soft French cheese.  ;D

You are spot on, complete crap  :y
I currently have them all round on the Black Pussy due to needing some in a hurry.  I've had huge issues with Pagid on the Battlebus and the Omega, so definitely not my first choice (although I did buy it with Pagid all round).

However, I'm pleasantly surprised, they take some abuse and have lasted better than expected, and I haven't felt the need to replace them early, like I did on the Battlebus (after about a month as couldn't get them to bite) or Omega (couple of weeks due to overheating issues).  Very dusty though, and the allows are stained. All 4 alloys, not just the front.

Available from all god branches of Eurocraparts.  :y
Things must be bad if Eurocraparts have turned to pedalling religion :D
I think in the UK now, they are exclusive to Eurocraparts.

Iíve sold vehicles since 2009, and by some luck Iíve sold 13 cars in the past 7 weeks.
It dawned on me today, whilst driving TBE into the Smoke, I bought it off you 10 years ago yesterday. It was my 40th birthday present to myself.

Where did that time go :o

Yesterday, I took the Big Black (and dirty) Pussy into the Fens, where people are thick* and men marry their sisters.


*Only about double the intelligence levels of those living in parts of Suffolk, particularly just East of Ipswich.

Today, I took TBE into central Londonium, just south of the river.  Due to closed roads, I took it on a sightseeing tours, crossing Oxford Street about a million times, through Picadilly Circus and Traf Sq, past Downing Street and the Houses of Parliament.

TBE taken as exempt from ULEZ, and getting expenses back from work can always be "interesting". But boogered if I was going on a train.

10
Is that all  ;D

Used to get the same from the XF, even the Velar manages 50 if you take it steady :y ;)
What do you reckon I'd get from an XF diesel.  For comparison, I tend to get 32mpg from the XJ tractor (early, euro 5 version of the V6 3l)?

Thinking about replacements for TBE, now that Towcester Shell has also stopped doing LPG, and as she'll be back to 80 miles a day when she goes back to working in the office, the old Omega has suddenly become too expensive to run :(

Depends how its driven, the ZF8 makes a big difference to the economy over the 6 speed, I could, if driven like an old lady, get 75mpg indicated (72mpg actual) on my commute (Rugby - Nottingham) from the 2.0 Ingenium
But reality of me and Mrs TB driving? Any idea?

A mate of mine as a 2.7 TDV6 XJ (x358) and gets stonking economy off that - always over 50mpg, and 800 miles to a tank on a run - and whilst he aint a boy racer (often), he don't hang around.  So part of me is thinking of an older (and cheap ;D) 2.7 XF for her.

Cruises . . . .

I know people who go on cruises. Regardless of Covid19, I would not want to spend time locked inside a tin can with them or people like them.
They don't appeal to me, but I keep promising some friends we will do a cruise.  Who knows I might like it.  But not with the current sniffle thing going around - for decades we've seen how less serious infections spread like wildfire on cruise ships.


The only 2 "cruises" I've ever been on was a Fred Olson one to Norway (quite enjoyable as a randy teenager  :-X), and one of those Nile cruises which was a great experience for the 4 days I wasn't confined to by bathroom.. Well, even the days I was confined to the bathroom was an experience I will never forget, no matter how much I want to.

.......hits the big 50 today.

Happy Birthday TB  ;D ;D :y :y
Thank you Mr DTM.  And thank you for your celebratory gift, you will be unsurprised to hear that some has disappeared already ;D


Happy birthday to DTM Junior.  Have you bought him that moped yet?  The CBT is easy to pass - make sure you don't fall off badly on the day, and you get the certificate :)


Happy 14th birthday to OOF as well.

There is a telemute line, but will cause "External Audio" to appear on display. As VXL V6 says, there is a CAN based mute for telematics, but that brings up "Phone" on the display from memory.


So sounds the output stage is shutting down.  Check the 2 screws that go through the top of the case into the small heatsink are in place - the case acts as part of the heatsink.


If the output stage is trash, but your old output stage from previous NCDC works, you can always swap the rear board (only) over. Don't swap front board or CDC, else you will bugger up the pairing.

It will print a letter using my WP, Textmaker, with no problem, however when I try to scan a document to email it advises "Scan to email application not found."
That is unrelated to "default printer", which is a concept that is heavily deprecated on 64bit Windows (from XP 64bit onwards, nothing new to Win10).  Default printers hark back to 16bit Windows, all (true) 32bit applications should be using application managed printers and 64 bit apps must use application managed printers.  32bit Windows retained the default printer concept to an extent, because they supported the 16bit applications through a thunking layer. 64bit Windows does not support the 16bit Windows API.


So, back to your issue, it sounds like the scanning software has not installed properly/completely, or the email application - thunderbird in your case - is not defined as the default email handler.

Does the scanner application work to scan a document to a file?  If so, I'd suggest the latter. If not, I suggest the scanner application part of the printer software has not installed properly, or you are using the wrong application (not sure if that printer uses the inbuilt Windows scan app, or the HP specific HP Scan app, or something else completely.
