Re: Quieter?

I know Facebook has killed off forums somewhat. I'm not registered on Facebook and I never feel like I'm missing out. The Laser Forum is where it's at! If anything, social media sites seem to cause some people a lot of stress and anxiety. Andrew. I have access to F/B but mainly use it for family pi...

Quieter?

Is it me or is it quieter on here recently? Several months ago there seemed to be more comments/threads etc.

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

They got an amazing price for that Laser, considering that it was far from mint. It looked to me like the winning bidder suffered a bit of auction fever... It's funny how the condition was bigged up and, unless I missed it, the hole in the roof by the hinge wasn't shown at all until the new owner m...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Yes we had VHS too, a top loader at first :) So, a funny story about VHS. Back in the day a long long time before Google, the only way to get decent porn was on our beloved VHS format. So, somehow I ended up with a nice little collection and my manager at my previous job took an interest so i loane...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Betamax or VHS :lol: Always VHS Andy :) How brilliant it was when these came out, the ability to actually record TV! It was amazing, like wizardry, and many of us were even still in awe of recording audio tapes. So exciting and so much fun. Wasn't it great. It's easier now and so much at our dispos...

Re: Sill hem color

You can see flecks of black overspray on surrounding areas, so to me this isn't factory finish.

Would look better white in my opinion.
