    The image size scales to fit the available space. If you resize the window then the image scales on the fly.

    SSD prices are giving me major downer.

    When you struggle to fit more than two games on a 120GB SSD I find paying 80+ for a half decent 250GB drive tedious.

    I get over this by only keeping games I actually play installed. My mate was complaining the other week that he had over 80 games to download on Steam, then complained he keeps buying games in the sale that he doesn't ever play, THEN complained he's doing so much overtime he doesn't hasn't had a chance to even sit at the PC... Why bother then?!

    Ruining my life? Paying £120~ a month in credit card interest. I could buy so much beef jerky for that!! (or you know, save for a mortgage...)

    I can remember paying hundreds of pounds for a 20MB sidecar - enough room for about 18 of the floppy discs I had lying around at the time...

    Everything is relative.

    Would have been surprised if you came to buy the same thing 18 months later and it was twice the price you paid for it however :mad:

    Same situation with my DS4. Random electrical issues, refuses to start when it's cold, likes to throw up traction control and electronic parking brake warnings for funs every now and then... 3 pages of error codes later and the guy at the garage goes "dunno mate, best take it to Citroen". Cheers.

    Got many remarks of 'take it to Peugeot'... it was Peugeot themselves that said 'we have no idea'...

    Basically the consensus is it's either, a problem with the key fob electronics... a problem with a sensor in the dashboard... or the ECU is borked... and there's no way of determining which bit is fecked, and replacing all 3 would cost more than the vehicle is worth...

    Generally found with French electrical issues your better off with the non franchise French car specialists. That or fire.

    Thanks, but already tried that... It's looking like option B.

    Was it an A590, perchance?

    No, an IBM compatible external drive the size of a ream of A4 paper and with its own 240V IEC cable, hooked up to my Schneider Euro-PC II and with a copy of MS-DOS 3.30A installed so I could use the new-fangled DSHD 1.44MB floppy drive.

    Man, I loved that machine...

    My dashcam began making the screechy-hiss sound of a LiPo battery about to let go. It's spent the night in a tupperware box outside (just incase).

    So if it does burst into flames you will have a lovely plastic mess to clean up.

    Better than having a burnt out car!

    Update: No fire occurred. Looks like I stopped the countdown at 007 :p

    Self-inflicted fatigue from a weekend at Grillstock, followed by an evening seeing Gogol Bordello.

    Had yesterday off work to recover, it was not enough :(

    It should resize it to the max width within the style you've chosen.
