Yeah... I think it's a lame excuse by Mark for being lazy. That's all.

But seriously, I think since Mark is Chief Sitting Bull when the snow comes in these few months, he should start to whip out the keyboard and update the FAQ.

I think I need to loan him the RING to kick some sense into him.

No I'm just trying to paint the shell for the car.

I will try to get on to the FAQ, but time is very limited at the moment

Limited time during winter? What are you doing? Building an indoor track?

Computer maintenance - oh boy - clean up my old laptops is taking some time. I decided it was eventually time that my old G3 Powerbook laptop (1999 vintage) got OSX put on it - OS9 was so cranky that the thing wouldn't run anymore.
To be able to do this, I had to move my entire iTunes library to my iBook (2002 Vintage). I had to also tidy up my whole photo database on the Powerbook, which meant burning endless CDs Then I was rebuilding my Xray - striping down my TRF-415 to prepare it to go onto Ebay - finishing off the RRR, painting a shell - keeping GF happy, etc Don't you just hate stress in your freetime

I wish I had free time to be stressful !

You've decided to part with the 415? The RRR can wait.

Hey, get a DVD burner and throw away those vintage Macs.

Besides putting RC as number one priority , you need to keep the GF happy for your well being. It goes a long way.

Yeah, I like the Xray better and there is no point in keeping both. The 415 was an improvment over the EVO III, but the amount of slop in the steering and the way the suspension blocks always came loose were things I just didn't like.

Well the DVD burner is a good idea, but getting rid of a Mac these things don't get old like PCs, which seem to get a form of Alzheimers - Macs run well until the hardware gives up

Fooy! GF has lots of stress herself - what with work and studying - she can look after herself whilst I play and I can make the excuse that I'm giving her time to study

Yeah, and you could say the same about Master Glenn who is probably 6ft deep in snow!

Where are you Glenn?!

Telling D that is like telling NiMo to change over to the 710!
