    Font size.

    Being a trifle aged I've found the "Change Font Size" icon, and can increase the font size so it's nice and easy for an old duffer like me to see, the trouble is everytime I change pages it goes back to microprint again. Is there any way to make the increase permanent?

    Number One.

    I can't take credit for this, it was Saturn Simon who used to be on here when he had a 3500S that thought of the idea, but it was interesting enough that I thought I'd steal it for here. What was the UK number one single at the time your car(s) was first registered? Try this site and...

    Measurement wanted.

    If anyone has either a driveshaft collar, or a diff driveshaft that's to hand, I'd like the id of the collar, or the diameter of the shaft where the collar fits, which should be pretty much the same.
