Hi TR7v8, thanks for your input, just a an off topic question, do you have a TR7 or a TR8 ?. I have a TR8 from the last month of production, in sad need of a restoration. Mick B.

I had a TR7 V8 for 7 years, had it expensively restored & then sold it at a thumping loss, which my wife reminds me of at various intervals. I did the engine & front suspension build.

Thats a shame to loose it after making such a nice job of it. I think most of us have wife trouble when it comes to our special cars. Its amazing what they can remember & recall.Every last penny we have spent on it & when. Fixing & restoring these old British Sportscars is my day job, has been for 49 years. Most of the guys have a slush fund their wives know nothing about, it can lead to some funny situtations sometimes I can tell you. I have to be careful what I say @ parties & get togethers. Mick B.

Nope Wife in full support all the way through. In fact she wanted me to sell the 944 & keep the 7! The reminder is I spent £16K on restoring itinto a California shell & loads of work & then completely fell out of love with it & sold it for £5,500. Mind you I spent £2K on re-silling the 944 after a spectacular MOT fail, this was 4 years ago.

Good venison steaks are fantastic but don't overcook them as it a lean meat (very healthy (for meat))  and can dry out easlly.
Terrfic flavour. Best I've ever had - in the north of Scotland

Well, to get us back on track :), after trying various different educational themes (Architecture, Photography) I settled on IT, which is where I am now, working at a reasonably sized University in NZ and it's still my first full time job 17 or so years later. No I don't lecture :)
I went from helpdesk to desktop support to network support, to servers and stuff, to managing a team who looked after servers and stuff and now I try and help people get what they need - which isn't always the same as what they want or what they ask for...
I get involved in a lot of projects which like the one we are doing at the moment, can be very stressful - the current project involves migrating 3700 email accounts from one email system to another. All sorts of fun.

30 something years fiddling with telephone exchanges and suchlike, had the office closed as a 50th birthday present, became one of Majors millions (professional jobseeker, posting CVs) for a while, delivered some bread, did some Civil Servanting for a few years, finally decided that since the mortgage was paid off I was actually doing a full weeks aggravation for under £40 a week, decided to set about enjoying life.

I don't mind telling you what I did. Joined the army from school, spent 2 years at the army apprentices college at Harrogate learning the weird art of telegraphy. On completion of training I volunteered to attempt the military parachute selection course, which I passed, then spent 4 weeks learning how to jump out of big smelly C130 Fat Albert's...brilliant. Spent 15 years in the army, then left in 90 and became a copper, and ended up as a traffic cop for 14 years, working on the M6 and in the south Cumbria area and also was a trained firearms officer. Retired October last year and now enjoying retirement. I do a lot of road cycling, mountain biking, I like to go to the gym, and joined this group as I am thinking of buying and building a model as mentioned in my New Boy intro.....

When I can not be at my shop doing model boats and in order to pay the food I work at an Hospital being the second in command, I'm some kind of nerd who know everything and do everything, even some surgery like the second hand, 31 years of practice about to retirement for health, one year at the Mexican Navy,

Gateway timeout is usually a routing problem - either the router doesn't respond or the gateway address (for the router) is set incorrectly. I can't say that I've ever seen that problem when accessing Mayhem.
Networks aren't something I've dealt with in a long time, but it occurs to me that maybe there is a dynamic routing type of thing (there are several different protocols IIRC) happening here and sometimes it gets it wrong...
Anyone taken a screenshot when it happens? We would need to know what gateway wasn't responding. Then we need a network diagram...
