    New quasi-sports Sedans

    No chance!, he buys Hondas while living in America which means that they laugh at him over there as well*. *and he thought it was because of his driving gloves, Hondas are only ever bought by parents for their high school children.

    Siliconslave's how to make espresso thread

    I've bought a couple of bags from them. They have a stall at the local farmer's markets with a large range of beans. I got a Peaberry and a monsoon from them and had no problem with either

    Honda Civic "sport" or alternative

    Try a test drive in one and see if you can live with the steering, it is not only very light, it also has the turning circle of an oil tanker. Two attempts to get into a supermarket car park space is not cool ;)

    Any Renault mechanics here??

    Could also be the battery on it's way out. In the cold weather the voltage drop is enough to set off a sensitive alarm. The fact that it goes off in the early (and coldest) hours may suggest the battery as the culprit, this happened to the guy next door

    Not bad for a 998cc Imp

    Old albums!

    Brilliant LP, though I would class it as middle aged rather than old :) Check out Joni Mitchell's Hejira, same producer and a lot of the same musicians. For loudness you cannot beat Alice Cooper's single ''Schools out (forever)'' which always amazed me with the output from a small 7 inch...

    Can you trace the wire back. it should end in a transformer which may have its output printed on it as you can get G4 lamps in 6,12,and 24 volts.

    Brian Eno

    Another vote for Before and After Science as a starter or Discrete Music if you want ambient. His new one ,out last week, is similar ambient. Thursday Afternoon was the first CD I ever bought. you could,maybe, live without ' The Lion Sleeps tonight'' :) 801 Live has a real 70's feel to it if...

    Spec me Some Good Champagne

    I think the new Tesco double clubcard points offer this time around included their 'Finest' wines and Champagnes, so you could get either double the quantity or up the quality if you are a regular shopper with them.

    Spec me: nuclear themed films!

    an old one to look out for is ''Twilight's Last Gleaming'' It has Burt Lancaster as a rouge military man trying to provoke a nuclear war.
