actually maybe not showcase if not where was it ? who's was the GTV in the picture ?
You were correct the first time... it was the showcase and believe it or not it was 2002. My 16vt looked like it had a shine that just came off the production line of course it later turned pink. Going by the dress code it was winter.
the Gtv was Francos if you remember he also owned a coupe.
There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses.
One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God with no address. He thought he should open it to see what it was about. The letter read: Dear God, I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had £100 in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension cheque. Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. I have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please help me? Sincerely, Edna
The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all the other workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and came up with a few pounds. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected £96, which they put into an envelope and sent to the woman. The rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of Edna and the dinner she would be able to share with her friends. Christmas came and went.
A few days later, another letter came from the same old lady to God. All the workers gathered around while the letter was opened. It read: Dear God, How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me? Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my friends of your wonderful gift. By the way, there was £4 missing. I think it must have been those bastards at the Post Office! Sincerely, Edna
Aye Simon. It does take a wee while to get up to speed at hearing the English in its under ware as named sometimes. The last time my wife and I stayed in Aberdeen for a short City break, it was hard to spot the local. I’m a social person as you know, but speaking to people we met most had foreign accents or English. Funny on hearing the broad Doric accent when we came across a true local after years away.
The screen is just a very dark blue/black, no keys are working
I didn't do any updates, all I did was switch it off as it was running really slow and not responding. When I switched it back on, it started this stupid loop ffs
My work laptop did this last night, I upgraded it to windows 10 a few weeks ago. Very slow, eventually locked up, had to do a hard shutdown to kill it. Booting up it ends up in a windows repair screen and goes nowhere. Pulled the battery out, played with the bios, every trick I could think of, eventually left it and had a bath. It was at the login screen when I came back and has been functioning fine since. The cortana crap has been coming up every time I move the cursor out of the side bar, but that's another issue.
Hell yeah, buy all the land in between and make a race track to the pub and back. Could build some lovely houses dotted around the fields, and thanks to Stan we won't even have to pay council tax on them.
The capstan on tape machines is subject to wear and hardening, causing slip. If some idiot leaves it turned off but in play, the capstan gets a notch in it. All these cause tape speed errors of greater or lesser degree...
