    how time fliess  and things change , The UK sport of gravy wrestling , has been overtaken by women's rugby , the game normally played by guys with odd shaped balls , heck we now have females also playing with odd  shaped balls , and on my old Twickenham rugby ground , Sigh if I was only younger , would have made tackling head first more interesting
    ( it's to promote  the ladies rugby club )

    Ooops did I break this topic ?
    either way British  news mainly centring on  the Syrian conflict  and the british vote ( yesterday ) to join in or not 
    ( yesterdays ) Result =
    BTW Cousins were in  ( wink )
    Even as it welcomed Britain’s decision to expand air strikes from Iraq into Syria, the Obama administration still finds itself responsible …
    meanwhile back in Britain the land of equal opportunities ,
    The RAF pilots could well be female , ,( easy to spot as they will be doing there hair and cosmetics on the run in )
    "The 'air angels' will deliver the ultimate humiliation to jihadists who fear they will not go to heaven if they are killed by women. "
    Would have posted the link but it leads to "Page not ....., sorry at that point I got distracted ( wink )
    War ? indeed  what's it good for ?  IMHO absolutely nothing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_d8C4AIFgUg

    Roco got a reaction from CA3LE in Just dropped in to say Hi from the UK   
    @ RyanS , 707 hp , or is it Brake horse power(BHP )  either way  it counts for little off road ,Seen many a 4x4 goliath
    overtaken in the mud  by a MTB ( mountain Trail bike )  but neither has climbed mount  , only done regular by native Sherpas on foot using  human BHP , + about  about 60% power of 1 horse , it's all relative I guess , as we say horses for courses ,
    anyway when are you guys going ISO metric ? ,  By the end of the 20th century, all countries in the world, besides the U.S., used the Celsius scale, rather than the Fahrenheit scale;.
    WTF is feet and inches & Lbs weight also F for temerature , every time I post to America I have to use a conversion program , How the USA  managed to put the first man on our moon beats me ?
    no insult intende it's just my dark Brit humour  ( spelt with a "U " )
    @ Cable , what can I say but thanks for a great testing site ,I have learnt so much about the vagaris on internet connections , indeed from my 4mbps ADSL  connection at best (2.5 mbps )  which my ISP  (Brit  Telecom totaly ignored my complaints ,indeed distance )  to my delight on their FTTC cab roll out ,
    your site and forum kept me sane ( almost )  , but I am know to have sane relapses  occasionaly )
    @  all the TMN forum members ,just "thanks for being part of my life" met some great home town  folk here"
    even at 3000 miles distance

    Hi All
    Just dropped in to say Hi  , it’s  been a while , long enough to have forgotten my password  !!!!
     
    I am still bopping along on Xp , but I got Plans for a new box build + Win 10 this winter ,Just letting the dust settle on 10 as I still haven’t recovered from buying Win M.E. when it was first released
     
    Still with B.T for my FTTC ,  @ 40 x 10 ,  the speed never varies ,  so I don’t test often these days ,  but will do one now  just for old times sake
    Test results  = 37.8 x 8.7 Mbps   sure beats 56k dial up , now those were the days “not”
    Best Regards

    the short answer is 883.246  young kids died for our freedom in WW1 ,
    our UK  remembrance date is 11/11 .annually
    I will be there , ( (ex Royal Air Force Air Sea rescue) “RAF”,
    Our UK  remembrance wll include the quote “
    “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them.
    they mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
    They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
    They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
    They sleep beyond England's foam.”
    But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
    Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
    To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
    As the stars are known to the Night;
    As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
    Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
    As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
    To the end, to the end, they remain”
     
    That always reduces me to tears ,
    BTW, our UK service also includes our USA & allied friends
    Indeed we were one back then ,but now thankfully still kissing cousins,
     
    Best regards to all on TMN,

    I go with Mudmanc4 on this one ,
    Money gives power to do good or evil , not having any limits your options ,
    so money creates money , money makes the world go around, so is it unfair that some folk have more than others ? ,
    maybe how they made it might be questionable , but it takes 2 to tango ,
    so some folk got into mortgages that they had no realistic way of repaying , so it was the lenders fault ? ,
    did they need the state to hold their hand , thats been tried before ( communism ) ,

    I took  the easy route and turned off wireless in the router ,and ran a cable ,
    although I see neighbours have unsecured wireless net works but none worth latching onto ,
