My old 1999 E39 530d had a fairly basic 3 litre straight 6 diesel, but it pulled and sounded like Deltic train engine and was fairly economical as well.  :y
160+bhp when people people used to get excited about 120... Plus all that luverly straight six torque 8)

I thought the Deltic was a 2 stroke.

.......so probably sounded more like a Wartburg Knight. :)

Yep.. An 18 cylinder one. 8)

Went to the office (for half an hour. My slot was 8:00 - 8:30 then it was someone else's turn). ;D

My commute was ermm.. rapid, compared with usual the usual trudge. :D

My salt mine got MS teams sorted out about a month before this struck. I'd say that was quite a lucky strike. ;D

It has the usual M$ traits of hiding the options you really want, pestering you with ones that are of no interest and second guessing you (wrongly) all the time, but seems to do the job. I hate to think what a mess we'd be in without it, having made a transition from 100% office based to 95% WFH overnight. ;D

I'm sure the first iteration of IM software used to be much more intuitive, though (without all the audio, video and calendaring bells and whistles, etc. of course).

I would have thought a switch built into smart Tv's would be standard by now so you could patch the various TV boxes everyone has in.
I reckon they will go the other way, and remove the ethernet port, and rely on the junk that is Wifi.  With all the security implications that brings.
Yep, I reckon the ethernet magnetics are a cost they'd love to eliminate, sadly.

I'd suggest drowning, but it'd be a bit of a waste of water in this case. ::)

.. and not necessarily because she's an entitled, self-centred, pointless snowflake. For anyone who aspires to G-wagen ownership, it's probably the kindest thing to do. ;D

Fitted a tow bar to mine. :D
You'll burn in hell for that... ;D

I wonder if someone will lend me their pikey palace for some photos for the Jag forum? :D
If its not an official dealer supplied Jaguar approved burger van, you will get lynched.
Lol. It's not even a dealer supplied towbar. ;D

and SWMBO served a woman today that had 10 cases of beer, bottles of vodka & a load of party type food ...... some people are too stupid.
We should have/need a tighter lockdown .... too many people out & about for no proper reason.

You're not wrong. The local brewery deliver mine. :y

Whilst I agree that footballers[the top ones especially]get paid obscene amounts of money,how many of us hand on heart can say that if offered the same wage would turn it down as being too much?

I really hope I'd feel sufficiently ashamed by the current situation to pay the bloke who cuts the grass out of my own pocket rather than see him out on his @rse, mind. >:(

Noticed my MPG has improved noticeably. Empty roads, more please.

Mine's got much worse. Same reason. :-[


 I was up to 11.9 , but with the bloody wind today 8.9.. :o

I'm sure I could manage that in the XE if I keep the "snail" on song, but my license might suffer. :D
