Yep, they are all working again. Must be your end. Incidendently, I downloaded firefox while they were not working and I could get them with that.... so I'm assuming it is something to do with IE 8 which I only recently upgraded to. What did you do? Tho it is probably too technical for me to understand. You know us seagull owners, we like to know how something ticks :)

Many thanks. Hugo.

Hi Hugo,

Glad the videos are working for you now... probably fixed it for some others too. 8)

What I did was add a bit of code to the YouTube button that specifies that the video we are embedding is a Flash Player video... Interestingly, the forum seems to re-write the code into the page, using what I've set up for the YouTube button, every time the page is viewed... that's why my change affected old posts, which was confusing me. Learn something new every day!

It must also be to do with the way your PC is setup (probably in IE), as I have always been able to see these videos... still, as I said, there will be others out there with the same setup as you who would not have been able to see them. So thanks again for your patience with me, it was a useful exercise.

All the best,

Hello
I have a Featherweight 40 Seagull bought new by me in 1988. The driveshaft warped around a rusty bit and I have managed to extract about half. How do I extract the rest? The seal is sealed and I would rather just knock off the gearbox from the bottom of the driveshaft housing. Is this possible?

Hi Brendon

Where is the Spleng Chekka mate?

Just took a leaflet out of the letterbox, saying that there's no reason I can't have good sex at 65.

Brilliant - because I live at no. 49 so it's not far to walk home afterwards!

You will need to install a spelling checker on your browser, there is no spelling checker available on the forum.

Hi Hugz,

Sorry, I didn't get a notification that you had posted this, even though I have asked the board to do so! hmmm...

I will look into that for you a.s.a.p. I bet someone has written a mod to do that.

Cheers :)

Hi Hugz,

Sorted now thanks!

Bookmarks is what you are after... at the bottom of the thread's page you will see 'Bookmark Topic'... if you click that it will add the thread/topic as a bookmark which you can manage from your 'User Control Panel' (top-left of every page)... click on 'Overview' and then 'Manage Bookmarks'.

Let me know if you need anything more specific and I'll see if it's out there.

Cheers,

That's brilliant Brendan. Works a treat. Now I can personalise my own reference data base. Now to search paint threads.

Thank you. Hugo.

Hi, still trying to post photos unsuccessfully, other sites I use, copy the img line from photobucket, paste into reply area. Does not work for me here, although other have said that is exactly how they do it. Running mini Mac OSX operating system, internet browser Safari. Maybe should try from wife's PC? Any suggestions? If you check the AOMCI site there is a nice feature that lets the computer challenged like me try posting photos until they eventually get the right combination, here one [me] ends up cluttering up the site with unsuccessful photo post trys.

You shouldn't need to clutter anything up, if you Preview your post before submitting it, then you will see if its worked or not.

Phil,

After you've selected the S.O.S Img option from above the text box, paste the Photobucket IMG code inside it;

[img][IMG]http://i683.photobucket.com/albums/vv195/Seagull70/SargentSkiff010.jpg[/img][/img]

Then delete the inside (Photobucket's) set of IMG phrases and check with the preview.

Voila' !
