Re: Server Errors?

Our partner has emailed me yesterday and suggested they are changing the routine resets of our board with a view to resolving these latest difficulties and requested that we give them time to see if that makes a difference. As my previous posts on this subject may have intimated, I have very limited...

Re: Server Errors?

If you'd like to email any comments to me at the usual address - admin at mmoc.org.uk - I'll forward them to the appropriate mailbox - sorry, I don't wish to place individuals contact addresses here on the forum. I've been playing around with a possible solution outside of our current provision - yo...

Re: Server Errors?

Yep, Looking at posts, I'm guessing it went down between 08:03 when Murrayminor managed to post something and when I first tried at about 9:15, literally come back in the 10 minutes or so. Isn't it time we had some comment from Mike or anyone in the know, because this is getting ridiculous. If the ...

Re: The Very Last Minor Saloon - 50 years old today!

The tiebars had a plating on them originally, so did appear silver. For a short while anyway! If we want to nitpick, the statement that the car has returned "into the building where it was made" is not correct. "T Building" at the BMW MINI Plant was part of Pressed Steel and not part of the Morris ...

Re: Last Minor Ever......really ?? (Manchester)

An update on this thread, the best part of five years since it was started. The car was indeed verified as the very last Minor off the production line and in the past few days - on the 50th anniversary from the day it was built - the restored car visited its birthplace having been restored by the cl...

Re: The Very Last Minor Saloon - 50 years old today!

Had to install some anti blur software to read the words, interesting story. I figured that copying the words verbatim from CCW which is only out today would probably ruffle some feathers so I blurred it out! Okay, here's the 'official' press release, which is ours so no issues reprinting it :D Las...

The Very Last Minor Saloon - 50 years old today!

It's been hard to keep this a secret recently but finally the wraps are off and you can all see the transformation of the last Minor saloon - yes, the one that resembled a pile of scrap parked outside the Derby office - into the stunning example it is now. Today's CCW has a teaser story, article to ...

Re: New headlight fitting

Oi, I'm only two years older than that! I despair this year - we seem to be sleepwalking into an antiseptic and depressingly anodyne society where Aldous Huxley is in charge of dishing out sedatives to stop anyone having a wobble because someone said something they can't cope with. What happened to ...

Re: New headlight fitting

I've read this thread for the first time today, and then read it again end to end, and finally a third go. It is inappropriate to give my personal opinion rather than the official one, but suffice it to say that I have found no reason to offer so much as a modest rebuke to any poster let alone remov...

As did I. And now I've got one for yours, too! I think we should treat that feature as 'experimental', as the last two times it's fallen over it has somehow resolved itself without any input from me before I had a chance to look at it!

Minor abandoned in Battersea?

The club has been made aware of a Morris Minor which appears to have been abandoned in Battersea. Does anyone have any knowledge of the vehicle or the owner? The person that reported it to the club is concerned that the council will remove it and scrap it. ab1.jpg ab2.jpg Thanks (on behalf of the De...

Re: 'Smart' motorways

Well thanks for giving your view, anyway :D . Personally, I disagree with pretty much all of it, but hey that's what a forum is for - so everyone gets to give their view, presuming that they want to. As a starter for ten, I'll throw in a news report about monitoring of the cameras, the same cameras ...

Maybe they were using the tenth man principle, a variant of which keeps me occupied in a variety of arguments on social media, some of which I don't even believe in but which I feel duty bound to shout for simply because nobody else is :D

Re: Stopped getting notifications

Just posted here from my personal account to set up requests for notifications, then posted from admin account to trigger a notification, and got the email just a few moments later. All seems to be working for me? Have you had the notifications about *this* post?
