    Richard got a reaction from trigger in Autoshite on Facebook   
    They have introduced a limit of 1TB for all accounts, which is basically the same as unlimited. It's no use to anybody though, because you can't easily browse through older pictures.
     
    One of the reasons I had to give up on Flickr was because I used to look at it on my phone quite a lot and mobile friendly sites can't be viewed on a mobile phone- and even if they could I don't want to waste my data allowance on downloading content that I didn't ask for.
     
    I am very close to giving up on the internet altogether, more and more sites are becoming unusable thanks to improvements*.

    I'm pretty sure I've run cars with more metal missing, though perhaps not as visibly.
     
    I was once sitting outside a scrapyard when I heard a horrible grating noise approaching. It was a rotten Metro with four young lads aboard and it was scraping along the ground. Just before they got to the yard they hit a bump, the back end bounced up and allowed the rear subframe to complete the escape it had been attempting. The final part of the journey was completed with the arse dragging on the ground and the subframe being pulled along by the handbrake cables. I think that's the worst car I've seen that was still moving.
     
    It got better though. Another four lads were following in a Stanza, after spending the Metro money at the burger van they all piled into the Stanza, some of them in the boot, and drove off.

    I wouldn't agree, I think the Mk2 Escort interior was worse, at least the Chevette didn't have bare metal on the actual dashboard.

    I would get hold of some roof carriers. They are easier to use (although you're lifting the bikes a bit higher it's a more natural movement), better for the bikes and doesn't raise issues with lights/number plates. The way that's sitting would put nearly all the weight directly onto the back window. I'm not sure you're meant to use them with plastic tailgates anyway.

    Road rage? I drive a multicoloured Volvo estate with accident damage.
     
    I've only had once proper road rage incident (about a fortnight ago) when some bellend in a 13 plate Micra switched lanes about 20ft in front of me after they had flashed the bus that was in front of me into a bus stop. I hit the horn, they stood on the brakes in front of me.
     
    I handled this by jumping out the sunroof, sitting on the roof and shouting "THINK YOU'RE A CLEVER CUNT, EH?! SEE THESE DENTS? THINK I GIVE A FUCK?!".
     
     
    They drove off sharpish. Spoilsports.

    They should normally go on the back, although I would put them on the front if my car had serious understeering or traction issues.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the other side of the same story has appeared on another forum tonight.

    The police in Cupar have moved to a new station that manages to be on the wrong side of the traffic lights in every direction. If you did the Post Office on a sunny Saturday morning there is precisely fuck all the police could do about it, however asthmatic your getaway car was. They would still be trying to get out of their car park at teatime.

    I am trying a different way of registering,As well as Captcha,we have a simple question and answer.
    Also new members will no longer have to be validated by staff,but all their posts will need to be validated until they have made 5 posts.
    This should hopefully stop spam.
     
    Also Board is now totally backed up every 6 hours to a seperate server,so if ever there are any problems we are can only lose maximum of 6 hours content.
    Hopefully will never be needed but.....
