Re: Hi all! Anyone remember this one?

Hi Dave, good to see it live to fight another day :D I agree with Jim, at that price it was well worth a punt and as something a bit different it deserves to survive. Let us know how it gets on,

good luck,

Re: Scimitar owner since 19 minutes ago! :)

Jim, thanks for that info, as the old saying goes, "you learn something new everyday". It would be nice to know what it stands for, obviously it's a Mystery!

and Dave, good luck with the collection!

cheers,

Re: Chrome Cobra?

Elementary, My dear Watson! :lol: :lol: http://www.basilrathbone.net/films/holmes.jpg Actually, on a more serious note, there were only 19 genuine Zagatos produced, (which is roughly twice as rare as the Ferrari 250 GTO), and they have always been a highly thought of, exclusive and thus well documen...

Re: Chrome Cobra?

The bottom one is genuine, being chassis 0187. The top one is "pseudo-genuine" being one of the (?5) "Sanction 2" cars produced in 1992 with the approval and collaboration of Aston Martin, and using unissued chassis numbers from gaps in the original sequence, so this particular one is 0196. I don't ...

Re: a bogus link

If it's any help, it didn't appear in the RSS version of the post, which I retrieved this morning (probably not long after Steve posted it).

cheers,

Re: Scimitarweb activity

Quick update based on some more testing - "newness" does seem to be affected by RSS refreshing. I posted my last note (to Sam in the Se5 section) then did a "view new" query, * before * refreshing RSS, and it appeared in the "view new" list, then refreshed RSS (which showed my note of course) follow...

Re: Scimitarweb activity

No, the "view new posts" wasn't a page I left, it was a freshly run query. In any case no matter how many times I refreshed it I got the same thing. And, in fact, I still do. The "View unread" is correctly showing the new unread posts (another 3 since my last one) but nothing is picked up by the "Vi...

Re: Scimitarweb activity

Well, I've come back to my PC after lunch, (I was still logged-in to the forum) there was one new post in addition to mine, the one from h-rose4 in non-tech discussion. This was picked up correctly by RSS, it also shows up in "View Unread" (as I would expect, as I haven't read it on the forum yet), ...

Re: Scimitarweb activity

Short answer - "no" Longer answer - I use RSS all the time, and I find it has no impact on anything else. *However*, my RSS settings may of course be different from yours. My "Time of last visit" shows the time I last logged on for this current session on the forum (i.e. not related to RSS etc). So ...

Re: Tweaks to the New Forum

Ian, well done! I think that's cracked it! It certainly works fine with my pic, with Nath's pic it's actually a two-stage process to fully enlarge it, but I suspect that's because it's quite high as well as wide, and I'm viewing on a widesceen monitor with less vertical height (i.e. when expanded to...

Re: Stiff rear Lock ??

What's not shown in the photos, as they deal with overhauling the lock, is that on the end of the operating rod coming out of the back of the lock, is a "snail" cam which operates the latch mecanism. It may be that your cam has become loose/detached and is not linking correctly to the latch, or the ...

And, just to add, it comes out in the correct 800x500 in RSS as well!

Re: Tweaks to the New Forum

Ah Ha! Well that worked perfectly fine in the preview pane, and I thought it was going to prove me wrong, which would be embarrasing (!) but in fact, in the actual act of posting it it seems to have been resized, and now when you hover the mouse over it it says it is only 650 wide - strange. However...

Re: Tweaks to the New Forum

Hi Ian, Thanks for looking into this. It's very odd, based on what I remember of them, the Brooklands photos that Dave and Matt posted (not mine) were bigger (I would guess at least 800x600) and badly truncated. Rather than refer you to other threads and have you chasing all over the place, here's a...
