Yup, may need some initial router config down in Spain

Sounding even better. Excellent excuse for an all expenses paid p*ss up business trip to Spain. ::)

Do you have any experience with wi-fi VOIP phones? Presumably a similar product just packaged differently?

That's useful information, Jaime. I've been thinking about how to keep my boss connected a little more seamlessly (and less expensively) than he is at the moment. He keeps sloping off to Spain, you see ::).

A box that he can simply take over there and plug into his broadband connection (assuming VOIP is not blocked by his provider) would be a very neat solution.

Might be worth checking in the volume control application that the fader for the microphone is not fully down. If you've got multiple audio devices i.e. not just n analogue headse plugged into the sound card you should be able to selevt which ones the Skype application uses.

EE Deltic 2 x D18/25 on full power
GWR Castle when driven hard

.. and I can't stop listening to the BRM V16 on my "Into the red" CD for some reason. ::)

1.5 litres.. supercharged..  16 cylinders.. 11500RPM.. 500+BHP

OK. It doesn't fire on all 16 most of the time, but when it does the sound can raise the dead ;D

I'll be really glad to see the Vulcan back in the skies again. Too much of our engineering heritage gets forgotten. The powers that be would face a lot of criticism if works of art were not preserved despite painting a picture or writing a piece of music being a trivial endeavour in comparison to the achievements of British engineering (IMHO). It's about time (and probably too late) that some effort went in to preserving it, especially given the scarcity of any modern day achievements of note.


I recall you spoke of your insurance getting the hump last time you swapped cars. Is this now resolved or is it worth sticking with the veccy for a while?

A mate of mine was speaking of maybe getting a dual fuel VX estate of some sort. Not sure if he'll be put off by the mileage but I'll put a word in.

original problem though is that it is not a Mk2


Back to the problem in hand.

What engine does it have? Zetec?

I saw a real Escort today - they need XFlow, Pinto or reegine with a Cosworth lump

... although personally I could live with a BDA too, I suppose... :-*


If the injectors are the same part number there's no problem.


I hope they were the same injectors?

Good though!

 :y Checked the part number on the side.

Were off a 2.5 V6 same year.

I was led to beleive the smaller V6s had smaller injectors - but anyway it's good to get them working

Have you got the injector part numbers? Would be as well to check they are the same flow rate as you don't want to have a couple of cylinders running lean.

Where did that jack come from? Looks ideal for fitting under a Westfield!

Bit concerned that the gasket is for a 2.0 but if the bore's the same I guess the gasket is also the same..

I'm surprised an MV6 with no exhausts didn't feature in Hotel21's solution....

I can second the recommendation for Zen. They are very good. Only problems I've had have been when a BT muppet in the exchange cut the wrong wire. All ISPs are in the same boat if that happens. Just have to wait.

I have experience of Vispa as well. Not quite as stable as Zen IMHO (DNS seems to get slow sometimes) but still excellent and more than adequate for home use.

I get same problem with MV6, cannot get to bottom of it - intermittent no sound from drivers door.  When it does it, the tweeter goes all distorted.

Blimey! mine does exactly the same. I put it down to having installed an amp and cooked the speakers ::) although I haven't been listening to it that loud :-/.

Do you find it worse with speech type radio programs than with music? Speech gets horribly distorted through my speakers but they sound fine with music. I'm pretty sure it's the speakers themselves. May try and find some decent speakers that'll fit without too much hacking about.

... anyway, speaking of mad b'stards, I was on my way to the tyre depot this morning and it occurred to me that my rear tyres only had to last me another 5 miles...  ::)
