  2. Wot u doing today then?

    Way Off Topic
    One of them is no friend of mine - she's my wife. The other two are her old school friends and yes, I've known (and liked) them for decades.
  3. Errors on CVs

    Way Off Topic
    Way back in paper CV days, every time I recruited I'd get a fat wodge of paper from the same bloke, always starting by saying he was never happier than when delving and diving. His CV was always the first in the bin. Had lunch one day with my predecessor in the job, and when I said I was...
  4. Wot u doing today then?

    Way Off Topic
    Had lunch. What more is needed? It was 69.2 miles and a few blasts in D mode away, involved some time on the M25 thinking of doing a bazza in the left hand lane (though I wimped out), a great meal and three giggling women of a certain age. (They once screamed at the Beatles in Finsbury Park...
  5. Did you see any unexpected cars today?

    General Motoring Discussion
    A black Rover 90, driving down my street. The driver was not wearing a bowler hat.
  6. Motoring rant without frontiers

    Rant Room
    Aaaargh! A curse on all roofers! Not King William Roofers, but Roofers the Red Nosed Builders. OK, so they put roofs over our heads, but why do they scatter nails and screws all over the road? Every house extension project (of which there is a plague at present) results in punctures. They got...
  7. Finally..................NIPped

    General Motoring Discussion
    Perhaps "I was sure I had exceeded 40 through it previously" would have gone down well in Court. Sounds reasonable to me.
  8. Why do they all look the same?

    General Motoring Discussion
    It's all very subjective, but you could have said the same any time in the past. Cars are always built within a current fashion. If you don't like that fashion, it dominates your view and you don't see the variations. I happened to like 1990s styles in car design, but even then at a BTCC race...
  9. What’s happened to the layout

    Community Help
    Thank you Gerrit, the formatting is restored to normal now. (Win 10 / Firefox / Dell laptop).
  10. What’s happened to the layout

    Community Help
    ^ Exactly. I have been running with "delete cookies on exit" for fifteen years with no problems on any website as a result. And if the formatting of alfaowner.com is dependant on dumping cookies on your device (which I very much doubt) then it's the kind of laughable error which used to be made...
  11. Comedy binge-watching

    Way Off Topic
    An unusual recent one, not yet mentioned, is Detectorists. Very understated humour - you get the delicious feeling you're the only one who spots it. An old Radio 4 comedy I loved was Cabin Pressure (John Finnemore). It's on Youtube. Another Radio 4 one, Unthinkable Solutions (Marcus...
  12. What’s happened to the layout

    Community Help
    Try it on a Windows 10 laptop or PC, Cricket. Edge and Firefox browsers both show the problem. In my case, all three components (Win10, Edge and Firefox) are bang up to date. No plugins or extensions. My Firefox has the standard setup, i.e. Private Browsing but is set to clear all cookies on...
  13. What the cluck has happen to this website?

    Rant Room
    Agreed. The navigation I use takes fewer steps than before. Also, I like being able to go directly to either the first unread post, or alternatively the very last post, in a thread. The current corruption of the front page is a bit a bummer though, and it's worrying no-one has said "we're...
  14. What’s happened to the layout

    Community Help
    This has been the case for some days now. (Win 10 and both Firefox and Edge). It's fairly drastic as we'll lose members who don't persist with trying to get in, and of course no-one new will bother with an obviously broken site. Is there an update from the techie side? Presumably it's being...
  15. Bad Management

    Way Off Topic
    Once encountered an administrative department of neary a hundred people that had a huge backlog, no progress tracking, phones going mad, people working all hours, staff taking time off sick, and worst of all the manager took his own life... Went to see the executive in charge, but he didn't...
  16. Getting really fed up of having to repair, reboot or retrain people.....

    Rant Room
    Alternatively this could be a rant about fantastically sophisticated technology where the makers can't be arsed to make it easily usable.
  17. Hi & Welcome To The New Year, Now That It's Official

    Way Off Topic
    Wishing you all a preposterous new year.
  18. IAM - Anyone registered?

    General Motoring Discussion
    There's scarcely an activity in which we can't benefit from some kind of constructive criticism, but I confess to a long-standing queasiness about IAM. I worry it might be a bit auntie-ish. Now, to rekindle enthusiasm, how about a racing circuit experience day, or better still a session in a...
  19. Sad lack of Italian cars in north Italy

    General Alfa Discussion
    This, exactly this. Recently had a Merc E class hire car Diseasel. Silent, refined, automatic everything, floated happily around town with no driving effort whatever. Cruised silently round motorways. Couldn't wait to get back into a noisy Giulietta with tyres that read the joins in the road...
