  1. Whilst agreeing that this, as it stands, seems baseless... to those citing the timetables, just remember they can be changed(!)
  2. It looks great - my main concern is 'how long will it last', and how practical it will be when everything is rammed on a busy sailing (but I'm sure that's been thought of) I'm always happy to supervise alcohol. Where do I apply?
  3. I'm very much looking forward to napping in a metaphor for a beach hut.
  4. Can't stand the Normandie, but I'm here... Everyone's got opinions and providing they express them in an appropriate manner they're welcome here.
  5. That I am... though, in that case I'm surprised nobody has picked up on the word 'restaurant' seemingly been said in the singular...
  6. BF posted a new video on Twitter giving an overview of how the LNG system will work.

    Most companies would want to limit their losses, so it does make sense - on the assumption that if this does materialise they can afford to do without in the long run.

    Twas actually a 2003 MK3 2.0 TDCI Ghia X, I just bought it in 2007... It reached the ripe old mileage of 135k before enough was enough... that included several jaunts to and from Budapest (where both the clutch plate and clutch itself were replaced - the latter just because of the amount of effort needed to get to the plate meant it might as well be done at the same time. Ended up being done in a garage a bloke ran from his basement)... Rewelds of the rear suspension bushes, a couple of cracked turbo pipes, replacement exhaust, it ate tyres (I'm sure the GPS recorded 143mph on the autobahn had nothing to do with that)... and in the end injector number 3 blew up pulling on to the M3. Ironically, the subsequent Fiat was the most reliable car I've owned (thought touchwood the 2019 RAV4 is doing ok so far)

    There's potential logic there. I also imagine the PA's costs will be above the normal budget - there's probably going to be some shuffling of ships/docks and finances given how far in advance slots at shipyards can be booked.

    Assuming that's a reply to the below from @neilcvx

    Applies to many things - there's a point where rather than throw money at a problem it's easier just to give up. RIP Jim's Ford Mondeo 2007 - 2012.

    I'd be inclined to agree - if you reach the point you're thinking of replacing multiple components, you might as well stump up the difference and buy something new.
  13. Quite - if I were one of the people of Burgundy I'd be demanding a name change. Nothing to be proud of.

    It all depends what you're actually trying to achieve here as to what you 'need'. Assuming you're planning to increase the amount of RAM (rather than replace like for like with higher spec), between that and the increased speed of an SSD disk you should see some general improvement in performance.
