  1. I'd imagine thats got something to do with the spelling correction deciding to continue to red text span - I don't get the option for spellig correction on Edge, FF or chrome on win 10 but i'll have a go with Linux later and see what it think.
  2. How much slop/slack/clatter should there be on discs? My SV has developed a bit of a clunk under braking and under light braking some fairly chatty chatter. I've just taken the calipers off and move all the pistons around (they are non-opposing twin pots) and one piston was slightly less excited to appear than its partner. Cleaned all that up so they are now ok, greased pins, backs of pads the usual stuff. But If i move the disc against its carrier there is a fair amount of movement both laterally and back-and-forth. A lot more than the other side. It makes the same clanky noise as t
  3. I bought new Baxi (on the strength of the 10 year warranty) 4 years ago and mine gave up about 9 months in (october time) and whilst Baxi did send someone out (who fixed it in 10 seconds - "oh, these sensors go wrong all the time") it did take them a while - 5 days i think. It wasn't mega cold at the time but the service was a bit lousy. The installers, who were a decent bunch, weren't able to help as all warranty work had to go to Baxi direct. It hasn't blown up since though. Only frozen the condensate pipe and the error code and resolution is part of the support numbers gumph.
  4. I know of a (Sceptre) turbo one of these local to me with a broken engine (snapped cambelt) thats been sat for a while (3 years?). I think you'd have to have the entire thing taken away but might be yours for a few hundred quid as a parts car? Believe its a 5 door. and has a sunroof. I think its done >200k but various things probably still work. Its almost certainly been heavily smoked in so the interior might be a bit ming. You'd have to have it recovered but not that far to Northampton from near Bury St Eds? Can possibly get pictures. I seem to recall the back axl
  5. Cheers but i think it's all OK, Gmail likes our setup, MXToolbox likes us, mail tester likes us its just Microsoft that don't. We are on the naughty step ish with them at the moment. Could you PM me your mail domain and i'll check the logs to see if they don't like us and I need to send them a BL cigar lighter bribe to get us whitelisted?
  6. Was your email a Microsoft one (outlook, hotmail, hosted office365)? We've had problems with them of late. Also problems with everyone else but i think most of them are ok with us again. We are only so-so with MS at the moment. I'm looking to sort out the contact-us page too.
  7. i can see what the problem is there, leave it with me. We have had some recent issues with email deliverability which I'm hoping are now resolved but might take a while to percolate through.
  8. 11pm for a few minutes to update the forum software and some server stuff.
  9. @Ben_O Just paste the URLs directly (need to be https ones) and the forum automatically does the rest.
  10. I think this might be a problem with Firefox. Works fine on Chrome on my phone (I use Firefox by default, v81.1.1) but images about 1.4M don't upload as you described. I plugged my phone into the debugger and there is nothing there, no errors, no network activity, zip. Very Odd. I increased the limit temporarily back to 2k and it was still a problem. Firefox have an open bug about this exhibiting the exact symptoms but it was back on v62 - someone commented they were still seeing this on a phpBB forum. I don't know if this is related to the updates in FF v81 - that was quite an overhaul - or w
