  1. Nice Phil! :thumbsup: I really must get round to buying one rather than letting my two post-cull autos going flat in between wears. Mind you I might notice the slightly off time keeping of my Pogue more if I wore it more than one day at a time, a prompt to get that service done maybe.... :whistle:
  2. Took this on the way into work this morning then forgot to post it - might as well stick in on now before it becomes Saturday!
  3. GW-7900 recent arrival (via the wanted board here - cheers Ventura!)
  4. Very nice indeed! Damn you both - could be another one for my list! :yes:
  5. Did a delete and reinstall once home - all back to normal again! :thumbsup:
  6. Is the Tapatalk mobile app plug in for the forum not working for anyone else?
  7. I do have a bit of a soft spot for homages like these - very nice mate, WIH! :thumbsup:
  8. Talk about a thread wandering off topic! LOL Btw - I gave up on the big item and just bought the small bits for 25 Euros shipped. Job done! Thanks for the amusing suggestions anyway! ;)
  9. Nice! - I looked at that one myself but I prefer them with rubber strap for actual sports use. You got yourself a bargain there mate!
  10. Just about to get there myself - good info all noted! :)
  11. Yep Caibre is the answer for pushing your own stash of books onto your Kindle! :)
  12. Oh dear... http://www.ablogtoread.com/hermes-le-temps-suspendu-watch-why-do-you-suspend-time/ The idea is that a woman will respond positively to the emotion in the concept of the watch. It is also a good conversation starter. "My dear, please allow me to adjust my watch. In this moment I desire for time to stand still. There can be no schedule distracting me from our time together." At this point you lift up your sleeve to reveal your Hermes watch that ideally matches an orange cream tie with walruses on it, and large "H" belt buckle. You get extra points if she activates the watch for you. Maybe this wise man is right - in an hour you can have her in bed, and you'll be thankful all along you wore the right watch that evening. :banned:
  13. The earlier model ereaders had a rather greenish / grey hue and looked nothing like reading from paper really. They were fine in daylight (especially in bright sunlight as completely matt surface) but required an external light source for limited light / dark use. Meant you ended up running an aux clip on reading light etc (much like clipping one onto a book) which was a bit of a cludge. These latest generation ones have a whiter appearance and built in persistant back light / luminous screen. Barnes & Noble also do a back lit reader (I think they were first to market on that front actually). The paperwhites are out in the US, pre-order state in UK just now - just noticed there is no Amazon Australia though! :eek: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007OZO03M/ref=famstripe_cl
  14. What's this rule? Do you need to have your own kits in the car? Yes believe so: Breathalysers On 1 March 2012 the French government confirmed that from 1 July 2012 drivers of all motor vehicles and motorcycles (excluding mopeds) must carry a breathalyser. The regulation will be enforced from 1 November 2012 and anyone stopped after that date who fails to produce a breathalyser when requested will receive an on the spot fine of €11. The official announcement states that one unused, certified breathalyser must be produced showing the French certification mark NF. Carrying two single-use breathalysers will ensure that if one is used or damaged, you will still have a spare to produce. The breathalyser produced has to be in date - single-use breathalysers normally have a validity of twelve months. Check our touring tips for France for the latest information. Breathalysers - latest The implementation of the sanction for drivers not carrying a breathalyser – a fine of €11 – has been postponed from 1 November 2012 to 1 March 2013. (October 2012)
  15. On a related note - I see the Kindle Paperwhite is now taking preorders. Since this addresses the main shortcoming of ereaders for me (reading in low lght in bed) I think I might be tempted. It's about time I got back to reading again, don't want the clutter of physical books.
  16. Welcome back - seems like there are a few people coming back just now :)
  17. Use Seiko Oceania lookup to get the part no then try Cousins? Stella @ PMWF and Yobokies might be worth an email too. :cheers: Rich.
  18. Dragging myself into work - G-Shock DW56-RTB today (leather strap is wearing actually - mist source a new one...) Have a good weekend all!
  19. Get it cleaned up and flogged to some F1 nut then! :big_boss:
  20. Final thought - get a set of cheap 2nd wheels (probably steel) and put the winters on them. Just use them in winter here / when planning to go abroad and leave them in the garage / loft the rest of the year. Will last a few years like that and you'll save on tyre swap over costs / better fuel economy and wear in summer.
