The number of people that look at a Mac and give up because the menu is at the top always amazes me.
Still I grew up with an Amiga so having it a the bottom was always going to be weird.
I've rejected Linux desktops for that reason. I *hate* the look of applications falling off the bottom of the screen. It's not a thing that's intrinsically good or bad, but I have thirty years of muscle memory to deal with.
As it turns out I have decided to go with the 20VT alloys, they looked amazing and made me 100% happy with my decision and also 100% optimistic they will go great with the car. It's a pity about the 17's, at the time it was what I was after, although things change over time and this is just one of those things. I don't think I'll be able to sell them even at the very low price I have them up for, upon closer looking when I took them home today there's more bits of damage so it's likely I'll just end up settling for scrap value if nothing happens in a week or so. The Pirelli P Zeros they have on them are probably of more interest ironically. At the end of the day when personalising stuff like this not every decision you make works out as planned. I have learned though after trying it one other time that I just don't quite fit with aftermarket wheels, I always end up going with a nice stock/OE styled one so I think I'll just keep it that way.
The 10mm spacers at least still have use as they are going to be used with the 20VT alloys, big thanks to Gareth at Northern Alfa Performance as usual. He's done a great job at custom maching the spacers so they can work with the original wheel nuts/bolts.
It is starting to come together a bit now at least, as can be seen with the new grooved MTEC brake discs that have been fitted now that area looks a lot better now. I've ordered the tyres today (UniRoyal Rainsports), they tend to arrive fairly fast from the place I get them from so I'll be bring the rest of the wheels and the tyres over next week in which they'll be fitted on fully when the cambelt and full service is done later next week.
After that I should hopefully be receiving the brake caliper paint soon to go with the Fiat decals that have already arrived which will be the next job, along with possibly investigating a slight leak on the power steering pipe.
OK. So my wife's boss now wishes to give the iMac to the person she kind of promised it to before, so the option of the cheep iMac is no longer on the table. The W10 Dell laptop has stopped regularly freezing after opening a few apps so I'm working with that now despite the fact that the old XP is now working almost perfectly after a visit from the computer guy and he sorted out the driver. As the laptop is silent, and freeware called 'VoiceMeeter' has solved the missing 'stereo mix', I'm using that for most things.
The one big draw to an aio like the iMac is the system wholistic-ness and guaranteed screen compatibility. The Dell has a VGA and HDMI out. I have 2 screens; a cheep telly from Tesco with VGA and HDMI in and that has an odd native res of 1680x1050, plus I have a 4:3 monitor at 1600x1200 with DVI in only (and I am loath to throw either out), both over 20". The XP PC runs into the monitor perfectly at 1600x1200, But the Dell laptop is strange. When I connected it to the telly VGA-VGA it runs at the correct res and correct ratio (i.e. a square is a true square), but there is an every so slight 'flicker' to the picture (and I do mean ever so slight - but noticeable). When I connect it HDMI-HDMI goes down to 720p (I think - the box that should show the res in settings is greyed out) and looks awful, and there are blank areas top and bottom. Even the computer guy tried and couldn't get it to work correctly. I also tried the Dell to the monitor with a VGA to DVI cable - but that was awful too. What are the chances that a HDMI to DVI connection (and keeping it purely digital) would work into the 1600X1200? There is no real way of knowing in advance if the settings would recognise or allow 1600X1200.
Linux might be great, but my brain is now fried and I just can't take another option now.
Going off on a tangent, I'm thrilled to see the return of World Rally on ITV4 (shown tonight, and even more thrilled for the winner of Turkey. I don't know if the previous 4 were shown, but they are not on the ITVhub.
Are you maybe asking for the rare 16v thermostat? Best idea is to contact the seller directly. Regarding the thermostat, they can be found in other places, will be more expensive at first, but at least, there's no high shipping costs.
As it says on the tin peeps. Not advice on a wax but there's a coupe part from Mercado Livre which, according to Google translate and the website, they don't ship to the UK. If someone knows a contact out there then perhaps an arrangement can be made
