'Artnoon Ken,

I agree and second that and as Graeme has turned in now, I recon control is yours, unless you want to wait for another confirmation!

I've got a lot to do today, but I'll leave my light on and pay attention as often as I can

I'm much the same as you at present...seems the older I get the more hours I work...something wrong there!!

I think Graeme would be happy for us to press on, so as they say "here's one I prepared earlier":

Nah mate - at least another week.

Awaiting telephone line (still!) and server/web hookup.

I have been a mix of lecturer and manual labourer, as we all have been, but we now have two classrooms set up. We finished the second one on Friday afternoon, and with another university course coming in tomorrow it was a touch of "lastminute.com".

Also enjoying a 2.5k paycut..............who cares............

The challenge fin reminds me of sumfin'.......was it Polish?

I'm sorry Ken; my internet seems to have almost stopped, I've re-started everything but to no avail, it's taking minutes to load google and my attempt to download Chrome failed (it was only 527Kb, but it timed out after fifteen minutes with only 13% downloaded)!!!

I'll try again later

Hope you manage to get your internet up and running at a sensible speed! Never used Google Chrome...as a google email account holder I keep getting asked, but I tend to stick to what I know...in this case Firefox. Hope to see you back later.

All very quiet....one clue for the nightshift...as you may have assumed from my earlier post, this is a Russian aircraft.

Closing down now.Usual rules apply if identified.

Evening Ken!

Going home soon after a very busy day with no chances to look in at all and thought I'd let you know you're not totally alone !

I had assumed that your challenge was Russian before I bailed out last night with my bad internet! That style of tailwheel and prop look relatively modern, is it a homebuilt or recreational aircraft and is it two or three seats?

I'll try and get back later if connection permits, nil desperandum!!

Evening Trevor...sorry for delay in responding. Yes, its been very quiet today - as you can see.

It is indeed modern 2 seats. Available as a kit or complete.

That's the one Trevor, well done



Not sure if your internet go-slow will permit, but if you can......

SincoTC has control

Thanks Ken,

It was a real chore, and then I found it was on Wiki all the time !!!!

I'll declare an Open House now in case there's a lurker out there or my connection quits on me!!

I'm having something to eat and then I'll see what I can do before bed!
