Oh, I do like the Sierra Cosworth! I've been looking at an old Mini that's sitting outside a garage I pass regularly. It looks like whoever owns it just hasn't got any interest in restoring it. What makes this one unique though is that it's a pick up type mini. Rare to see. I need the space to store...

The forum has definitely died down a lot in recent years. Answers are easy to find online now and a lot of younger people in particular are growing up with a good knowledge on hardware or they know how to find out. I think this has a lot to do with why Ozzu has slowed dome a bit.

I didn't actually think you'd be able to find any inforgraphic generator as inforgraphics are so unique in their design.

However, when doing a search into this I found that there is a site which seems to do this (for free, too).

I'd be very surprised if this was possible as you'd be accessing data that the user may have chosen to keep hidden. The only way you would be able to get this info is if the user has chosen to allow people or group admin members from accessing this information.

I don't know if this is how he does business, or if this is how wealthy businessmen in America do business but as much as there was a nice $1 billion pie handed over to my country in the form of a "World Class Golf resort" not too far from where i live, i don't think many people want him i...

I am sure that they don't think about it as a race. Nowadays the biggest population is a problem, not a benefit. Yeah, I was just kidding. Overpopulation is definitely a problem. There's probably too many people on this earth at the moment. If the free to watch (on YouTube) documentary "Home&q...

Does this raise a million red flags for anyone else, or just me? Personally I'd never even consider participating in something like this. Exactly what i was thinking. I left a post about how i dislike Facebook amending things and assuming it was okay a couple of weeks ago, i don't think i'd trust a...

I completely agree with all that is said. If i was more active online i would frequent the site like i used to do when i first registered. Life changes, yet i do find the time to spend browsing Ozzu when i can. I'm glad i can say that after being a member here for over 7 years. Whilst the community ...

I've heard it all before... lies.jpg I know of people all over the country outside of my city of residence that has been getting snow, yet it seems to be avoiding here. I don't think i've wanted snow as much as i do now in all of my life. That weather warning note at the top is the most over-rated t...

You know, i never thought i'd ever say this but i am jealous of all you guys with snow and jealous of everyone with sun and heat. It sucks being right in the middle. Granted it is pretty cold, but it's still bloody average. With that said, we've had enough strong winds recently (some strong enough t...

Great to see you back here again Typhon.

It's still warm here. A bit of rain... that's about it.

It's funny you should say that, i am one of those people that has been pretty much hooked on Facebook since it's introduction many years ago. I would log on daily and frequently check the "news feeds" and other random bits that came with it. The site has been great for keeping in touch wit...

I am so thankful to have power again, I really love electricity I have figured out. I remember years ago having a power cut at my parents house. They live right in the middle of nowhere with nothing within a couple of miles of them and at the time i wasn't old enough to drive and my mum wasn't keen...

Career goal achieved as stated before, and booking holiday will be achieved early next week. Already arranged to go to Stockholm, Sweden to visit a friend of mine.

I completely agree with you. It's something you'll find most companies are doing at the moment probably for the same reasons you mention. In a way Facebook is making registering to websites seem like more of a chore. If you can just click a "sign in using Facebook" button then the vast maj...

Yeah, other than the fitness related goals i've set i'd like to further my career a bit and even start up my own business. I set that career task prior to this year when i changed jobs at the end of November. Fortunately for me, yesterday i was offered a different job with my new employer and i am d...

Peoples circumstances have changed alot over the last year or so i'm sure. I am doing less and less online and more and more away, and as it is paying off for me on the job front i really can't fault the lifestyle. That's not to say i don't still visit Ozzu, but most of the time i do it's to either ...

You beat me to it Mark! Happy Birthday Bigwebmaster! I hope it has been a good day so far and it continues right up until you collapse into bed heavily intoxicated*. *i say heavily intoxicated, but it really depends on how you take being another year older. Another year closer to your 40's. I mean, ...

Yeah, I completely agree. Went well with the Chaplin speech. I think everyone should go into the new year watching these videos.

Mine is fitness related as well, but also hoping to little bits like go on holiday as I've not been anywhere since I was in Australia 4 years ago. Still hoping to make it to my sisters wedding in Las Vegas in November. Loads of other goals as well. May elaborate when not busy getting ready to head o...

What does everyone hope to achieve before the end of 2012?

Two of my fav bands played the backing track to these vids. Last one was from Scottish band mogwai.

Good video kc0tma.

I find it odd that I've been a member for over 7 years now, so I can't imagine what it is like for those of you who have been here from the beginning.

The problem with this particular video was the actual link i was getting from my address bar was incredibly big. Larger than most domains... although it may be due to a setting or two i have on the way i view vids on the site. The embed link automatically as .be domains, is there any way .be domains...

Yeah, I have Jonsi from Sigur Ros following me... but that was because i started following him. I agree with what you say though. In the story above this well known singer (verified acc) has 14 million followers, yet she has chosen him amongst the half million she is following. It means nothing, and...

I discovered tonight that a friend of mine has a very famous American singer following him on Twitter. This has confused many of us because he isn't one that tweets to her, yet she has just today started to follow him.

If you are a Twitter user, who is the most famous person that follows you?

I just left a topic which had a link to a Youtube vid on it. I tried to put in the [youtube] tags on it rather than posting it as a link, however it wouldn't let me.

Spam has cut down so much since these measures were introduced.

I don't know how much media attention this has been getting around the world, but today winds of up to 165mph hit some parts of Scotland. The wind is strong enough for it to be listed as a Category 6 Hurricane (the highest category on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale). This sort of weather is very...
