• All, You may notice that the site looks a bit different. This evening I performed a major software update which improves some things and has the opposite effect on some others. The old software version will no longer be supported so it was not really a choice. One down-side is that the new release breaks most of the Add-Ins and style sheets which will have to be reinstalled (and repurchased in many cases). The biggest loss is that the feature to receive all new posts by email is no longer supported. I will likely implement another option which will let users subscribe to either a daily or weekly digest. You will notice enhanced support for attachments, ability to bookmark posts and a more mobile friendly experience. If you do discover something that is not working as it should, please let me know. I did have to switch to some new anti-spam components and am keeping fingers crossed that they are as effective as the old ones without blocking legitimate users. Keeping the balance is kind of like trying to design a car that both drives and swims! Thanks, Mike

I have solved the 3 year old problem of my car wanting to wander all
over the road at 40 plus MPH! It is always the last thing you do that
solves
the problem. After replacing shocks, tie rod ends, king bolts & bushings,
tires, and wheel bearings the problem goes away by letting some air out of
the
tires. (thanks Eric M.) Also adding a little weight to the front end. Yes,
15lbs is what the front
tires want for you to be able to go 70mph down the road (down hill) and
take your
hands off the wheel, which is what I did yesterday. What a great feeling I
had
for about 10 minutes until the car got very hot and stalled in the center
of a divided
highway. Vapor lock and a broken generator mounting flange left me hot &
stranded
for a couple hours to bypass the fuel magneto valve and let it cool off
till I could
drive it the rest of the way home - like Dave - with the blue light on all
the way.
Now it is broken down in the garage, sure to need more repairs to get
another few
minutes of pleasure before another impromptu parking lot car show. What did
you do
yesterday?

Hey.....

I may not know much but I have driven my Amphi at 70MPH on the
Illinois tollway<G>. Not like the bilgemaster on the PA turnpike but
close.
