Come on people, lets get these forums rockin'!

Post by jstonehouse »

Come on guys, we need to get these forums rocking! Forums have to be one of the best thing about a host, and seeing as Myles and co. have been so kind as to set one up, we should start using them more and more.

I have bought my second server with Myles and am more than impressed so far, he's been very helpful in getting us ready and that needs a mention for sure.

So, whats everyone been up to recently? Wasn't there some kind of BIG HOLIDAY in the US? Did anyone get up to anything interesting?

I've just come back from the french trip from hell. It was supposed to be a two month break, part convelescence for my girlfriend who is recovering from major surgery, part holiday and part (well lets face it, mostly) work! However, my nice new car decided to break down on a remote highway with a £2,000 reparation bill and I was left with the only solution to buy a cheap secondary car as the repair work would have taken the duration of the holiday - the French take holidays seriously! Anyway to cut a long story short, that car also broke down later on but fortunately wasn't so hard to fix. Along with many other hiccups along the way, we named ourselves the "disasterous duo" but laughed it off in the end - after so many problems thats about all you can do. All in all a great trip beside the hiccups, good weather, food, wine and company and you just can't beat that.

Heh-Heh,

If we fixed the "auto reply" emails, people might visit the forums a little more i guess, someday they might be super active, i just cant imagine that being any day soon :).

My car clicks when i drive, i swear, 1 wheel rotation = 1 click, its like im whizzing down main street in a cereal box toy, i brougth this to my mechanic's attention a few months back (along with brake squeal, come back abestos, i love you!), and apparently he couldn't hear the clicking/ticking.

Damn cars! :laugh:

Gotta get that one going, forums can get pretty big quick (ours went from 0 to 1,600 posts in two months)

Now.... don't get panicky..... but so did mine. I always thought it was strange, I heard it one day as I was driving along and then every time I was in the car I had to make sure the radio was up so I didn't have to listen to the racket. Its hardly very loud... but when you know its there you certainly can't help but notice it. Anyway, car broke down less than a month later, but can't imagine they're related... :shock: :roll: :?

Well, the sounds was the brake caliper rubbing on the rotor.

Not a good situation!

Calipers replaced, rotor reground and new brake pads.
