Re: Search then ask ..

wiki? As in wikipaedia see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki It's not uncommon for forums to have attached wiki's these days. The wiki is just a database of 'knowledge' about the subjects in question. Because the content can be user editable and hyperlinked it's a really nice way to collect togeth...

Thanks - are you suggesting that I return to IE or is there a way to use both at the same time?

A touching story ... and I must confess to being a little surprised that Mrs Doubtfire had a wife!

Bikeroutetoaster problem

I'm unable to save courses in BRT. When I try to log in I enter my user name and password and send. The user name stays visible and the password box clears. No other comment appears, nothing to confirm that I am logged in. (if I enter the incorrect password I then get a message telling me to try aga...

The Rich List

I've just been looking at the top ten richest people in the UK according to The Sunday Times Rich List. How the other half live eh? Wonder if they have any recollection of what it's like to live like ordinary folk - although some never have done it given that their mouths are so full of silver spoon...

Re: Garmin 705 for Lejog

I used a 705 last year and in one word - invaluable. The freedom of cycling along without worrying about map reading is great. The Garmin bleeps as you approach a junction and again as you reach the junction. The more care you take with planning your route the better the guidance it gives you when o...

Re: Been hit by a footballers car?

Correct me if I'm wrong (as if I needed to say that) but I think that tinted windows are not illegal per se. There are degrees of tint which are permissible in the rear and side windows but not the windscreen. I don't know how it's done but I'm aware that out local traffic patrol police officers had...

Re: Search then ask ..

Or how about a FAQ's section - similar to "Too good to lose" which would direct newbies to the h*l*e*s threads etc? I'd really like to have one, but then I feel that the stuff that goes into TGTL should be informative and to the point, and, alas, so many h*lm*t threads have plenty of post...

Re: Fear of touring

You've obviously got the interest or otherwise why buy the bike and the kit - just get your gear together and set off. After a short while you'll realise that all your worries were unfounded and your adventures are unfolding in front of you! I do agree that company is desirable but your own company ...

Re: Search then ask ..

Having suggested a sticky thread for regular topics, it wasn't met with much enthusiasm. I was about to say we might have a place for articles written by posters who've solved a particular issue, say the complete guide to Campag-Shimano hybrid transmissions, but even then someone will pop up at the...

Re: Effect of Atkins Diet

When I was in my forties I ate about 6,000 to 8,000 calories per day. I had 4 large 3 course meals and 3 substantial snacks every day. I also ran 3 times a week, played squash twice a week, swam, climbed, looked after an allotment and large garden, and worked hard. My weight remained at 10 stone 12...

Re: which membership organisations offer useful discounts?

Discounting generally seems quite immoral to me, in that it is as good as saying to the customer “we are profiteering, but as a valued customer we won’t do it quite so much with you.” Immoral no, bartering yes - you wouldn't do very well in many countries where bartering is the norm. We are usually...
