    Re: Cars we had, and now have

    I did have a British Racing Green with a yellow mouth bonnet MKII spitfire that I broke for parts and its number plate was GUV 381 C.

    Wish I had kept it but it was SO rusty.

    Re: Cars we all had, or now have

    In the Spittie you CAN drag your arms on the ground if your arms are long. Mine are long.
    You can also definitely touch the spinning rear tyre if you hang your arm over the side - and you don't...

    Re: Cars we all had, or now have

    I am just over 6ft, and trust me, the Spittie has plenty of leg room. This particular roomy aspect is assisted by the fact that it has no roof, so to get in and out, you merely need to stand up.

    The spittie is my own photo, I took next to no photos at all of the Scimitar and the Maserati at the time - but they are the same models and colours and year. I probably have a non-digital photo in...

  20. Re: Getting the ball rolling. Which VB6 projects are you working on?

  28. Re: Getting the ball rolling. Which VB6 projects are you working on?

    Well, it is still true that for me, the UI IS everything. However this is not a commercial and nor a consumer product and so the UI is not designed to appeal to, let's say, a type of bulk consumer.
