  1. Before long you are likely to be unable to link from anywhere to a site that doesn't support SSL, and probably won't be able to access a non-SSL site from any mainstream browser. It is actually a very sensible move towards better security, and whilst I fully understand a reluctance to get all technical it is probably just postponing the inevitable.
  2. (b) above is interesting, as over the years I have several times had errors on the V5 which DVLA has been strangely reluctant to correct, for example, a green SAAB 99 which mysteriously DVLC (at the time) insisted was red and seemed incapable of correcting!
  3. If I right click on a photo link and select "open in new tab" this is I get the error message shown below. I don't know if this is of any diagnostic use to Those Who Know How This Stuff Works, it means little to me. This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it.

  4. I'm glad you asked this because I was about to ask the same question. I have the same problem with Windows 10 laptop, also Android tablet and phones. At least I know it's not just me.
  5. Still hoping for updates to this very interesting and impressive overhaul!
  6. Very interesting, thank you for answering your own question!
  7. I'm sorry if my post offended you (which is strongly suggested by the tone of you post) but based on what can be seen from the OP's photo, and based on the trajectory of the top of my own (manual) door, I stand by my opinion. There is no way that that link requires an offset of that size at the door end. A quick diversion to YouTube to watch videos of similar doors in operation fully supports this view.
  8. Looking at the photo again and being mindful of this suggestion, I am inclined to think that the link has been fitted the wrong way round anyway. The shape as fitted makes no sense, if flipped as per Mr Herbert's suggestion it would, I suspect, fit perfectly.
  9. Looking at what is visible in your photo, I don't see any reason why the bend in the link need to be so pronounced. I would have thought that a straight link (or a very nearly straight link) with the same hole centres would work just as well. I would operate the door and watch the trajectory of the top end of the door, and if nothing enters the area inside the bend of the link, make up and fit a straight one.
  10. It's been a long time since this excellent thread saw any action, so I thought I would try to wake it up by posting a link to something I have only just stumbled across, the new Liebherr G-BKF armoured rescue crane. A seriously impressive tool, I now know what I would do if I won the lottery!
  11. Can I ask when you say "big", how big? Also whereabouts (in general terms) in the country are you? Many thanks.
  12. Is it possible that the letters "AFK" visible in the rear view are the last three characters of a "123ABC" format civvy registration painted on the tailboard? It looks to me possible that the same marking appears on the FOS wing.
  13. I believe the LR Series One Club has brand new ones (thermostat housings) available.
  14. What I find remarkable by modern standards, and also rather nostalgic, is that virtually all the vehicles are British. I spotted only about a dozen cars and not a single commercial vehicle of foreign manufacture.
  15. Not just electrical, but fibre too. Hundreds of kilometres, I believe.
