    Afternoon guys, its taken me ages to read all the pages for today. Scott, w3sty, dane, love the cars. Damo, awesome job on your car, i think you shoud go for black. Welly, sounds like you having a bad day. Dont understand why they spend all that money on servers and dont fit ac in server rooms, what idiots. I hace a small ac unit in my server cubboard to keep mine cool.

    I wonder how much the initial outlay is compared to a AC unit with a 6 year maintenance contract.

    No I was after some polishing pads but they didn't have any. All I bought was air fresheners and glass polishing cloth!

    Do you have to order a house hold appliance to hide the spend on the suspension? :)

    I don't like oil burners but this is nice. I could do some miles in that no problem at all.

    I wish it was that easy.
    Its just the way it happened.


    Reesy, You can't beat a good oil burner for chewing up motorway miles.
    My next car has to be a white avant.
    I love white so very much.

    Mate, you are preaching to the choir here - I couldn't agree more.

    Like I said initially. Short term gain - long term loss.

    I don't mention MPG anymore. Nor do I mention car insurance. When other people talk about what they can get to the gallon and how cheap their monthly/yearly payment is, it annoys me. So I don't talk about those

    We simply will not sell servers without an accompanying UPS. End of. Built into the price.

    On another unrelated IT note, InPrivate browsing (Or incognito etc etc depending on which browers) is great for using on customer's computers to view what you want on the web.... Until you close the window by mistake and then have to log back into everything again!! :mad:
