    DAMN for looking .... get thee behind me satan.

    I use UCP as my "relaxation" from work.
    Let's me stop thinking on the hard stuff and enjoy the important bits and to keep my mind "empty" so I can then sleep.

    Gotta love consultancy in retirement

    a consultant never retires, he just fades away...

    I was thinking the trade would be for accomodation during Nurburgring events in return for press pass access

    EDIT: re translation .. the big issue is online banking with Volksbank. If any unusual message pops up, by the time I've struggled to work out what it means the bloody banks web timeout kicks in and I'm back to square one

    The good news is that my work firewall hasn't noted this as being a 'forum/general chat' block yet...but some very useful engineering/coding sites are blocked because of just that...go figure! Now all I need to do is actually find the time to be on here long enough in the day to post and I'm away...

    Something that I like to do is go to ebay and search for "other makes" under motors. Nothing like a little drooling to help pass the time.
    I think u missed the part where i said i was a college student, i'm not a spoiled brat and i'm dirt poor haha. I usually don't have problems w/ the ads it's just the Mustang one for some reason. It's prolly b/c it has that dumb animation where it's supposed to be doing a burnout

    As a student I'm betting it's a FRACTION of what you spend weekly on alcohol


    ... actually .... I'd ahve spent it on MORE alcohol, so my advice is to be ignored !!

    I'm on during work times.. not due to addiction so much as not enough work to do.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.
