Driving with Mrs A as a passenger today meant we were late going home from work and in a rush for A-Junior's Cricket practice.

So no decent FE for me today then

Microsoft ASP.NET ReportViewer.

Its like running through a series of revolving doors head first with your eyes closed and blindfolder and someone is pushing you.

Eventually you get through to the other end but it will be very painful and bruising.

And each time you change anything, and I mean ANYTHING, you have to start again.

I fixed my fence today and made it nice and solid but managed to re-attached the detached panel the wrong way round - it was raining, I had my hood up and wanted it done.

And now its up. And solid. And so is not coming down again.

And I didn't get my Fabia shelf done...

No wonder your knuckles have no money.... (see other thread).

EDIT - surely a bit more 'GO' is needed first ?

I really shouldnt use colloquialisms

as for the go..I believe the following..

1. Make it stop (good discs/pads/fluid)
2. Make it handle (bushes/droplinks/dampers etc)

then

3. Make it go!



Its easy to crash at low speed too

But but but but.... I thought the iS had uprated bits and bobs in those departments ?

Anyway, I'm just returning your chain pulling

How annoying are those people that are so slow to learn how to do PARAGRAPHS on their computer?

All the e36 coupes (even the 316i) had uprated suspension over the saloons.. doesnt mean its up to much after 120k though..

glad to be driving my e30 at the moment as the suspension is on- just the exhaust rattling off the floor of the car thats a pain!
