  1. Hi all, I'm just planning a road trip later this year in the USA in a RAV4 :) Travelling 4500 miles from Portland OR to Chicago IL. I've attached a JPG showing a rough route I am planning. My overall plan is to visit every state in the USA (eventually). I have already visited CA, NV, UT, CO, AZ, NM. I had planned on ending in Chicago as I can get a direct flight back to the UK from here. Places already on my itinerary are: Yellowstone NP and Dallas (Southfork Ranch - yes, I know I am a TV geek!) If there are any fellow TOC members over in the USA that could give me some advice on places to visit and particularly places I should avoid (especially any neighborhoods to avoid) any help and advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Phil.

    This is a common scam, and not always associated with specific websites. Read the article by Fred Langa who explains how this scam works. Basically it tries to scare you into believing your computer is infected and hopes that eventually it will persuade you to part with your credit card information. http://windowssecrets.com/2011/04/07/01-LizaMoon-infection-a-blow-by-blow-account Another similar scam that happened to one of my mates was a phone call from a lady supposedly from Microsoft, saying that there are errors on your PC. They eventually get your card information from you. Within 5 minutes he had given his credit card, and when he checked with the Halifax, he had lost £250. Lesson to EVERYONE - never ever give your card information to anyone or on a website that tries to tell you that your computer is infected. If in doubt - simply PULL THE PLUG on the PC - or hang up the phone. Phil..

    This might help......
  5. My initial response last week to this thread was to give it a thumbs down. Having used it, it has definately grown on me. Everyone has different views, and the original post asked for people's opinions, I find that some of the replies have been downright rude! Come on guys, why not give constructive criticism to help improve the site? As for the comment above (quoted) apply that logic to cars, well if we didn't have change we wouldn't driving the cars of today would we! Phil.

  8. As I understood it, the first numerical digit will increment by 1, therefore they will become for this year xx 10 xxx and 6 months later instead of xx 50 xxx they will be xx 60 xxx Phil

  11. Hi all, Just received in the post today a voucher from RRG Denton (M34 3SH) offering me a free brake fluid change....... "...As a valued cuistomer and because we haven't seen you for a while and have no record of you recently changing your brake fluid, we would like to offer you a FREE brake fluid change to welcome you back as a valued customer......" etc. As I don't own the Rav anymore, the voucher is useless to me! So if anyone can use it and would like it - you're welcome to use it just PM me your address and I will send it on to you. (it doesn't say that it isn't transferrable to anyone else, so you should be okay to use it). The voucher is valid until 30th April 2009. Cheers, Phil
