Albs. I've put my WIM settings in a safe place; could you remind me of them please, for the next time I need my tracking/alignment done? I will try not to lose them again!

More usually "Trouble and Strife" - more appropriate, too! :(

IF co2 is the enemy (many contend that it is not), then watching the "Inside the Cocacola Factory" programme recently amazed me with how much co2 they release into the atmosphere; not only in production, but massively more when the bottles and cans are opened. Should we ban fizzy drinks?
Then of course there is all that methane that vegetarians produce.....

Pony also means cr*p in Cockney, as in "pony and trap" - just to add to the confusion! :D

Omega General Help / Re: camcover leak

Run away from the dealers! A better option would be to take it to Serek (SOS Autos, a member here). It will be worth the trip to Huntingdon along the ever-loving M6; he willdo a proper job, including clearing the breathers (essential to avoid repeated oil leaks) and he will not have your trousers down with his charges. :y

New genuine camcover gaskets, breather clean and check the  rubber flap-valve bung at the bottom of the pollen filter housing - it's supposed to close when not draining rainwater to prevent smells entering the cabin.
Just in case you think that I am super-clever, that was a distillation of knowledge garnered from the wise owls on here, for which I am grateful and happy to pass on.

Babbage was a good bloke, Dave; look how lomg my abacus has lasted!
The XP is merely a back-up, enabling me to access the Forum and get the answer to my now solved problem - thanks Jimbob.
My daily driver is a full-fat mainframe Acer Aspire, now running the super-modern Windows 10. Impressed, eh? :y 8)

I must have clicked on something and made my desktop icons disappear and now cannot get them back. I;m on another (old, windows XP) computer typing this as I have also lost MS Office.
Please rescue this soppy sod!

"zip out into the traffic much faster and safer than humans can" - sorry Sir Tigger, but no; they will be programmed to be risk-averse.
