Chatterbox / Phone problums
« Last post by gldavison on Today at 03:27:50 AM »
I have a Samsung galaxy S4

Anyone know how to hack into the Android phone system. My phone was 4 years old in May 2018. In July August 2017 my phone started shutting itself down at random, usually when I was trying to run an application. It would reboot until either plugging in an external battery or charger.  Other times it would shut down and try to reboot itself (never succeeding) and the only way to stop it was to take the battery out. They're telling me at the store I just got an old phone I need to buy a new one because that one can't be fixed. That ain't going to happen. I know the phone is programmed to do this. Thing is how do I get in there and delete it

I am assuming it takes special software to get into that system. But then again assuming usually gets me in more trouble. :hammerbash:

The intake manifold is burred, filed and polished. Now I have to take the engine apart and mount it. At least it will look better than the dual carb manifold with only one carb.

Shows / Re: Guildford Gala Weekend 2018
« Last post by Dave Otto on Today at 01:16:03 AM »
I am not sure what to expect this year. The Guildford Model Engineering Rally was one of the best events on the calendar. Suddenly, at the end of last year, the organisers changed the format to a Railway Gala Weekend for 2018. What it will be like this year, I have not idea. It could just be cho-cho rides and facepaint for kids and young families. Who knows?

The number of model engineering events, where we can display our engines to the public, has declined dramatically in the last few years. So some of us old dinosaurs, who still hanker over the good old days, have decided to bring our own tents and models for display at the Gala Weekend (with the agreement of GMES) and to carry on the tradition, as if nothing bad has happened.  Head in the sand, maybe????

Mike   :old: :old:

Hope you have a great time Mike, and I would love to see some pictures of the show.

There used to be a tribute web page to Mr. Wall but I can't seem to find it right now.

Is this it?

It's an interesting story.

Not exactly the one I was thinking of, but probably contains the same information, thanks Zee.

Amazing, I wish I could have just a little piece of your talent.

I could do with a little piece of anyone's talent on this forum.

My favorite is the Albatros D.Va. I've tried to build it twice (Model Airways). I will go for a 3rd.

A Camel and SE5 are also desirable. But for looks...it's the Albatros.

Funny side note...my youngest daughter in pre-school was asked to say a word that started with 'a'. She said albatros.

The rear tracks look like fun.  :popcorn:

I've run out of superlatives.
No Applause. Just send cookies!   :cheers:

The actual track segments are going to be a challenge - much more complex a shape than the Lombard ones were, not sure how to make them yet. Should be fun!
