His Vauxhall failed the MOT and he is having to cut four cylinders off .
A little bit of searching will find Davids email address . Start off with embedded wotsits.com and go from there.

actually i found his email already (google rules), emailed him this morning, got immediate reply from mail-daemon notifying that the domain is not available, i assume he uses the other one @ embeddedcomputers and mail him there.
but i was having a feeling he's gone back to england, which means it's a moot.

but since you said that vauxhall thing (is that offshore oil machine), is that mean he's going back to jakarta?

"Vauxhall" is a poor quality mechanical contraption used as a motorized conveyance for impecunious homosapiens - it is a product of the GM group , lovingly created by mentally challenged monkeys in Luton - in the heart of beautiful Bedfordshire - home of the "Hatters".

Dave has a penchant for trying to drop big block V8's into Vauxhalls , and getting them to drive in a straight line without the torque of the engine causing the windscreen to pop out , and the doors to get stuck in the holes .
Dave can be found by looking through the forums dedicated to such practices -

Nope, I am still here. Just not been online the site for a good while now.

I dropped the domain because I was getting loads of SPAM and I also sold the car when I left Scotland last year. Miss the V8 though and would love to get one here but nowhere to drive it as too many loonies on the road here...

Actually, it never failed an MOT in the 5 years I had it on the road. Everything on it was new and I only used it in the summer months and only when dry (which is hard in Scotland as the day can start out dry and end up bloody wet and you don't get many dry weekends in Scotland either)

How about the human interest aspect ? did you buy the MP3 player from V8Dave ? If so , were you happy with it ? what is your taste in music etc ?
No need to close anything - this could go one throughout you ownership of the MP3 player , and even if you didn't buy it for some weeks , at the very least .

yeah, that's a good idea, i just wasn't sure what this thread for since its mission accomplished, especially because i'm new here. well, i guess the software will do the pruning.
v8dave and i are gonna meet tomorrow, we've agree to the sum of money i should pay, and i can't wait to dump all my mp3's in it.. laugh

btw, my name is oleng. i'm not a bule, if that's any help.

my taste in music is pretty wide. i like blues, jazz, rock, classic, no dangdut,... especially enjoy music from 70's & 90's era.
i dislike recent (popular) music, so i haven't exactly listen to any music that came out from regular channel like mtv since... 2002 maybe. and i've developed an odd (for most pribumi anyway) taste of what i like that i decided i've had enough with all the crappy music that played over and over in every tv channel & people around me.
hence the mp3 player.

What's a bule ? do you mean one of them Londo Bajingan things ?

Nice to keep the thread for posterity - not only that , if your MP3 player packs up , you can go back to V8Dave (if you can catch him) and say "I know when I bought it and it is still under warranty - Can I have my money back ?" - Then he can say "No - 'cos I operate the same returns policy as Indonesian shops - if it doesn't work after you leave the shop - tough "

LOL
no, i mean it more like "you buy me beer me love you long time meesta" bule. i thought (assume) you've been here long enough to know that the term bule implies what douglas adams wrote, mostly harmless.

I know you are scared of MT.

She is ok, you just need to know how to handle her. She is a real cool chick. Big into Hitler and heavy rock. I should bring her to Sydney and introduce her to the Aryan Brotherhood.

Lulu scared the piss out of me....
