I can't stop building stuff ?,but I'm slowing down


« on: August 08, 2019, 06:26:44 AM »

Hiya guys just a question really?  It's gone REALLY quite on here as of late?  Nobody is posting stuff, no pictures? Are we all too busy? Have we all gone on holiday?
I'd post pictures but I can't find a decent App for my tablet that's easy to use?  (Down Sizer) and it's got to be simple because I don't understand technology in regards to computers or phones?  Shocked and I have tried loads of apps in an attempt to post? 🤬 Cheesy

Im doing bits, but my health has taken a knock at present. I'll ask my friend who is an Apple guru about apps for resizing. My new iphone gives an automatic choice of sizes but the ipad doesnt.

Yes, it's gone quiet, but I can't force people to post if they don't want to.
Any suggestions?

Not doing anything vehicle related (though I have bought a Yank as my daily) due to a combination of too much to do around the cottage and neck problems limiting movement.

I'm still building my Pop, but progress is slow & not very photo worthy. There don't seem to be so many projects on the go these days.
Unfortunately the guy who was going to rebuild the website for me died a couple of weeks ago, (Simon Pollock). I got a quote from a commercial Web company a couple of years ago -they wanted 1 1/2 grand to build a very, very basic version of the site.

Imminent wedding!

Congrats Archie. If you've already had the wedding, I hope it went well and if not, have a super day and really enjoy it. Either way, post a couple of pics of you in your finery. You're a handsome lad and I need cheering up!  Wink Cheesy

I will hazard a guess Mr M, excellent site though it is, the clientele are getting old!!....older Shocked, less endeavour, me, probably the last throw of the projects dice was my three wheeler, so, difficult. we need some young blood I fear. Who knows, in a while things may pick up, although I fear a drift downwards as of now. don't mean to be negative but I have seen it happen with many forms of Car/ motorcycling clubs etc. over my lifetime, but hey, what do I know! so I'll just carry on listening to Eddy Cochrane  whilst typing this load of old drivel, Grin...

Stinkey, I have used PC's and laptops etc for 25 years, and never found the need to "keep in touch" via any " social media" sites, social bloody media, now there's a contradiction in terms if ever I saw one, and I can just hear the howls of indignation from the twitter, Face Book, and myriad of other clones of the same ilk, but bugger it, do I need a system that encourages outrages like self harming, bullying, etc, etc, by faceless punters, hiding behind their on-line personas, on....." social media", I think not, so.....yep, I also believe it has an input into the demise of such valuable outlets as this site, well there you go, Morrag. ps. does anyone pick up a phone, send an "E" mail, or, God forbid, talk face to face anymore! Huh Huh

Well morrag (my nearest mankey neighbour as it happens), I couldn't agree with you more. Leave the arsebook  fetishists to it, life's too short.
We should organise a west wales meet....
