    120 Invincible,what years and spec. ?

    Yeah i don't think any of that is accurate. The wheel on back door+ under slung was an option till almost the end when the 3rd iteration of the invincible was launched. The first iteration of the invincible was positioned between the lc4 and lc5. The second one was a variation of the lc5, with...

    @Chas no harm in trying out the website from your phone as a test. Try it with the WiFi and then with the 4g data. Might help isolate the problem of its the ISP or the antivirus perhaps.

    Upgrades to UK bought 200 series

    Maybe look at a new 150 ? May not be a V8 but on paper should handle your ask very well. I haven't ever dragged anything in Europe, but lots of people on here have and should be able to help. Toyota will put in the 13pin plug for you.. etc Only thing you might need are the extended wing...

    looking for a 100 series,what were the best years?

    Reading this thread... I think the general consensus seems to be to buy the newest you can, with the lowest milage you can find, in the best possible condition, with the best possible history, that drives like new.

    There is no new 200 series in the UK. Haven't been for nearly 5 years now. What exactly are you planning on towing ? And what sort of road conditions ?

    What budget laptop?

    Yes. To me anyway. I would get that x270 and expect a 4 to 5 year service cycle from it. You can still call Lenovo and get a 2 year extension on the warranty too. Most £500 mark commodity laptops you are going to get at Curry's are just lumps of plastic with the cheapest possible bits. See if...

    What budget laptop?

    Avoid the 3000 series CPUs from AMD. It's the 4000 series you want. I just wish they would get in with it and start bringing them in.

    What budget laptop?

    The x250 won't get the milage an x270 will... Apart from being older it's got a much fewer opportunities to upgrade down the road. Parts for the x270 are also much more readily available etc Buy a good baseline and then down the road, as needed, get 'upgrades' in. This will goto 32gb of ram, 2...

    What budget laptop?

    The e6400's were quite a solid thing! The latitude 5480 and 5490 are direct descendant of the e6400 and seem to still have a similar keyboard. You should be able to get one of those, from Dell's own outlet store with an i5 CPU/16gb ram and a 255gb ssd for under £350. Personally, the only...

    What budget laptop?

    Chromebooks stop receiving updates a few years after they are released ( usually 3yrs) So be careful which one you get. It's going to brick itself much like a phone ( it won't... but with no updates and a locked firmware.... Would you really use it?) Lenovo ThinkPad's are good ; the T460p is a...

    Crawl control on UK spec 200 series.

    The 2015+ registered 200's have crawl control (in addition to the terrain management, which most 2013+ ones have). My understanding is that trucks made Nov 2014+ have it. So there maybe some pre 2015's around too, but check.

    UK death rates.

    Yes, but most people die due to underlaying health issue that get aggravated due to the virus, right?

    UK death rates.

    Yeah, everyone is trying to massage the numbers. But I don't believe the numbers are inflated at all, on the other hand the numbers in the UK address being hugely downplayed. The govt has no idea what they are doing.... luck and coincidence is going to get us out of this.

    UK death rates.

    When we say lots of people are surviving, it looks like in some areas that lots is about 3% of people over the age of 65, who get put on a ventilator..... (Again, this is stat from a report, so we need to make up our own mind if we agree or not ).

    UK death rates.

    It does look like different places are trying different things. Also in navy cases you treat the symptoms as well as the virus. Sort of like the malaria medication - not everyone is using it, those that area using in different doses.

    It's not going to go very low, I don't think. Even if the storage pressure lasts ( it may not... ) The profit for the movers part is driven by who's got how much storage and where. The zero prices are being driven by some of the large middlemen forcing the smaller vendors who are storing in...

    Numbers are hard to track, I guess find a source you feel you can trust and stick with that for some level.of consistency. The JHU ones are what I look at. The other thing is that the death rate seems high in the UK, because we are largely only testing people who are already in a bad enough...

    Maybe a question that can not be answered

    Till there is a way out - vaccine and cure - all the efforts at the moment are focused on keeping the death rate at a manageable level. We also have, just going by the numbers at the moment, one of the worst death rates per capita on the world. The isolation period will not go away in a hurry...
