@  Francesco : (14 April 2015 - 01:24 PM) Genius. I never even saw that selection, and have no idea how "items I started" got selected. Thank you!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (14 April 2015 - 01:03 PM) Are any of the things in the left column under the "other" section checked?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (14 April 2015 - 01:02 PM) Got it
@  Francesco : (14 April 2015 - 01:02 PM) done
@  FlossyTheSmart : (14 April 2015 - 10:05 AM) Definitely send me a screenshot via PM then.
@  Francesco : (14 April 2015 - 08:55 AM) I'm back from Australia, same issue on my laptop. "View New Content" doesn't show any new content. Chrome on Win7
@  KurtMan : (10 April 2015 - 10:00 AM) Thanks for the suggestion but it looks like uncle Glen will be supplying me a used one.
@  turbomar : (09 April 2015 - 08:34 PM) Perhaps you could check with Troy. He may have a good used one??
@  KurtMan : (09 April 2015 - 12:53 PM) Do you have a place in mind to order from? I don't want to pay more than a couple hundred...
@  marchanna : (09 April 2015 - 12:31 PM) Did you try ordering one online. You can probably get next day delivery.
@  KurtMan : (09 April 2015 - 10:16 AM) Does anyone have a parts car in the Ottawa area? I need an intercooler A.S.AP
@  Francesco : (07 April 2015 - 01:32 PM) yeah 3G. There was a long lineup at Vodaphone. Didn't know Optus uses LTE bands my iPad doesn't cover... Vodaphone worked on LTE last time I was here
@  Francesco : (07 April 2015 - 01:30 PM) I won't make you chase this until I get home next week. It has to be related to the hotel wifi portal somehow, at it has worked fine on Optus 3G for a few days until we checked in to this hotel
@  marchanna : (07 April 2015 - 09:43 AM) It would appear so
@  FlossyTheSmart : (07 April 2015 - 09:24 AM) It seems like Francesco is having some different problem than you were
@  marchanna : (07 April 2015 - 08:55 AM) It works fine for me now. Do you still want a screenshot?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (07 April 2015 - 05:10 AM) hmmm... mind sending me a PM with a screenshot if possible?
@  Francesco : (06 April 2015 - 11:28 PM) Ok cleared cookies, it showed I was logged out and there was a raft of "new content" but when I sign in it still says "Sorry..."
@  Francesco : (06 April 2015 - 11:25 PM) just for data points, I may have broken cookies or something, I'm in Surfers Paradise on hotel wifi right now
@  Francesco : (06 April 2015 - 11:25 PM) What I'm saying is it *always* tells me "Sorry, no new content found," though if I click the "Forums" tab above it clearly shows new posts
@  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:59 PM) OK, the behaviour has now been changed. View New Content should now always default to Forum content, no matter what page you click the button from
@  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:43 AM) I'll leave it as an open question for the day, and will change it when I get home tonight.
@  marchanna : (06 April 2015 - 07:38 AM) I think that what be best unless some one else thinks otherwise.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:37 AM) (Yes I can change it, relatively easily). Do we want the View New Content button to ALWAYS default to showing new Forum content? That probably makes the most sense. The other options would still be there, but you would have to manually select them.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:33 AM) I'll have a look though
@  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:33 AM) Not sure if I can change that, because usually people want to see the new content for the Forums
@  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:33 AM) Yeah, that's the default behaviour. YOu should then be able to manually change between what type of New Content you are viewing with the options on the left side of the page from there
@  marchanna : (06 April 2015 - 07:05 AM) It appears to show the "new Content" of whatever subcategory you're in. Ie, when I was reading PMs, then click view new content, I got nothing because I was in the Members sub category. But when I clicked Forums, then View New Content, it worked fine for me.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 04:45 AM) When you click "New Content", is the "Content Type" on the left side of the page set to Forums, or something else? If you do Marchanna's trick, it will open to the Forum stuff by default, but I think if you go from the front page, it will use whatever you last selected (intentionally or otherwise)
@  Francesco : (06 April 2015 - 02:56 AM) Yeah, not showing me anything.
@  marchanna : (05 April 2015 - 02:35 PM) I think there's a glitch. Click on forums first (at the left of the page) then click on view new content button
@  Francesco : (05 April 2015 - 01:09 PM) I think "View New Content" is broken, doesn't show me anything anymore.

By HUBBLE SMITH LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL ON THE WEB Most American drivers realize they're going to have to trade their mean machines for green machines somewhere down the road, sacrificing performance for economy. Gasoline prices have receded to $2 a gallon, down from a peak of more than $4 during the summer, but nobody believes they're going to stay there. Crowds gathered around the Passion Cabriolet Smart car Friday at the Motor Trend International Auto Show in Las Vegas, squeezing into the two-seater that gets 33 miles a gallon in the city and 41 on the highway from a three-cylinder, 70-horsepower engine. "Well, the (fuel) economy is so good on them, we almost bought one a couple years ago," Las Vegas snowbird John Cole said. "They're nice little cars. We're full-time RV travelers, so we're looking for something easy to tow." He bought a Mini Cooper instead because it had more room and was slightly less expensive than the Smart car at the time, though the price has come down to about $17,000 from $25,000. The Motor Trend International Auto Show showcased the latest in fuel-saving technology along its Green Trail. Some 25 models boasted fuel mileage of better than 30 miles a gallon on the highway. Representatives from a variety of automobile manufacturers talked to people about how they can save money at the pump and promote a cleaner environment. "People want to know fuel mileage," Toyota vehicle specialist Maria Siegert said. "The first question people ask, 'What does it get?' Then they want to know if it's on the lot. With the economy right now, people want to drive better fuel economy vehicles." The Toyota Prius is the best-selling hybrid car on the market, priced around $22,000. The Yaris, the smallest car in Toyota's lineup, gets 29 miles a gallon in the city and 35 on the highway. It starts at about $12,000 for the basic package. The biggest draw at the Toyota display was the Venza, an all-wheel-drive vehicle designed and built in Georgetown, Ky. The 3.5-liter V-6 version gets 19 miles a gallon in the city and 26 on the highway. Fuel efficiency will become increasingly more stringent in the future, said Rick Ruane, inventory specialist for Ford Country in Henderson. Ford is coming out with the Fusion in 2010 and is bringing back the Fiesta in 2011, converting the European diesel version to gasoline, he said. General Motors product specialist George Simenton said people are still looking at large sport utility vehicles, trucks and high-peformance cars such as the 600-horsepower Corvette ZR1 and the 2010 Camaro. "People are still driven by need and even though gas prices are high, most people look at Corvettes," he said. "Those are cars that dreams are made of. It doesn't mean it fits people's needs." Brian Wilson struggled to get in and out of the Smart car. "When you're inside, it feels like it's bigger," he said. "I'd take it for a drive. I don't know if I'd buy it -- maybe for my daughter. I still like my truck." The Motor Trend International Auto Show continues through Sunday at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for military, seniors and children.

"Brian Wilson struggled to get in and out of the Smart car"WTF? Really? My arthritic mother likes the smart because it's so easy to get in and out.
