Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

It was Stephen, it was set to reboot "Netboot" mode, which takes longer than a standard reboot, we also did some system checks to make sure all was intact. All sorted. :)

Well this was my first meet in what appears to be almost 2 years (thank you James to pointing that out) and what a return it was!

I met up with some old faces and a lot of new ones and had a great day out! top marks to the chefs and whoever made the coffee! oh wait I made my own lol.

Can't wait for the next one and will bring a crate of beer for those what want to help me (I use help me loosly as I will be hopeless, except as tea boy...) fit some seat covers and maybe a new dash... (runs and hides).

Great day! Thanks to the organizers once more especially for getting the weather sorted. :D
Thanks also to Duncan for clearing the path a little in the search for my SRS (Supplementary Restraint System) fault.

My journey home did not go so well though, the traffic on the M6/M5 being so heavy that it took nearly 2 hours to travel the 50 miles home.
Fuel is obviously not expensive enough to keep cars off the road. :gmc:
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

Southbound M6 was dreadfully slow, anybody see the car on fire on the hard shoulder, it was just getting going as I went past. NO flames just loads of smoke then.

Seat covers we can do. I have done my own dash twice, but bear in mind I got tired and left the car in pieces for weeks. So you may find your car stripped down, but not rebuilt :lol: :lol:

Seriously, can give some guidance and help with the seat cover job, but if it's anything like today I'll be busy with the T4 (Testbook version 4.Computer Diagnostic System).

Could do with one of them T4 Ninja's to relieve the pressure....... :panic: :panic:

Two theories about the weather.

Last Nano, Paul was not there.

Last Nano, Dave was there.

Glad to hear you are at the next one, will make sure I bring the right laptop and interface to do the reverse camera job on the TV tuner. I did have a slight moment of panic when someone said you were at this one as it was still at home.

Looking forward to it.

Well the weather was awfull for Colin coming down to my place. From here out to Runcorn (M56) it rained, then it cleared into a lovely morning. Got to JDC's and on the way back to the M6 we caught up with the rain again. :(

Got to the na na na na na nah meet at 10-30 and soon after that the rain cleared off resulting in a really lovely day.. :)

Had a really nice time, met friends old and new, and enjoyed the food and coffee's.. :D

Roving Dennis kindly drilled a hole in my car, but then we couldn't find the reason for it, namely the hole in the bottom of the plenum chamber, eventually after removing the ECU (Engine Control Unit) we finally found it lying at the bottom right under the new hole Dennis had just drilled, bit of luck that I thought. :D

Colin did a lot of the driving on the way back, he was very good, I even offered him a job as my chauffeur but his reply had to be written on a piece of paper and was handed to the Clerk of the Court... :o

My thanks to all for making it such a nice day out.. :thumbsup: :clap:

It seems to me that these meets can't go wrong :) That MUST be down to the people that turn up :) even from the outermost fringes of the empire :thumbsup:

Another terrific day, even though I wished Les' car far away at times. Thanks to Steve (Devilish) for persevering in working out the car's "Friday afternoon" wiring whilst I was helping with Martin's car. Eventually completed the ultimate remote mod though and I suspect that Les was happy :D

Yet again, Ben's girls showed us all just how well behaved young people can be. Hats off to them for putting up with what must have been an incredibly boring day.

Nice to see new faces as well as the 'usual suspects' ;) I'm just sorry that the workload precluded getting to talk to everyone. Nice to see the lame walk as well :lol:

Thanks to a certain lady who shall remain nameless who wound me up about the ladies loo as well :lol: We'll have a bucket for you next time ;)

Food, as usual, was excellent and was it just me or did the tea and coffee taste just a little bit better with water from the Nanomeeter's own urn? Thanks to the community who bought it for us and thanks to Lyndon who graciously agreed to store it for us :)

and now the spring approaches, many more meets to enjoy, cant wait.

Although the Midlands Nanos have got bigger an bigger and we now usually meet at the 4 Ashes who have the room to accomodate us, i think we should still meet at Teddy Bears Nursery now and again as it is really enjoyable
