and then when google have a large client base they will do same as photo bucket

this is how to create wealth, hook in a client base with free services, build it up and then extort them.

happens in industrial automation software.
Seeing as photobucket & Facebook are both property of Mark Zuckerberg now it can't be much longer before the fees start there unless the point of buying photobucket was to drive people into using facebook for their photos. The initial slowing down & saturation with ads only began after the buyout

Bert feared his wife Peg wasn't hearing as well as she used to and he thought she might need a hearing aid.
 Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family Doctor to discuss the problem.

 The Doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to give the Doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.

 'Here's what you do,' said the Doctor, 'stand about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.'

 That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was In the den. He says to himself, 'I'm about 40 feet away, let's see what happens.' Then in a normal tone he asks, 'Honey, what's for dinner?'

 No response.

 So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, 'Peg, what's for dinner?'

 Still no response.

 Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his Wife and asks, 'Honey, what's for dinner?'

 Again he gets no response.

 So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. 'Honey, what's for dinner?'

 Again there is no response.

 So he walks right up behind her. 'Peg, what's for dinner?'

 (I just love this)
 'For F#@k sake, Bert, for the FIFTH time, CHICKEN!'

Rod Spry clocked my frame' differences years ago before I bought it and before he did the Honda. I have photos of another Honda which I can send you. The swingarm looks identical to the mk 4 and is indeed a fabricators work of art. I think Les's own bike has the same swingarm. He has mentioned that that is not the original. The swingarm is very different from mks1 to 3 and the DR version, but still essentially box steel.
Dick Mann has stated he had 25 made of the Honda version. His own comments on the DR version start at 25 but have been as low as single figures according to previous comments on this strand.

Well that’s a curve ball I didn’t realise this .
 it didn’t say if the swingarm also was a Dick Mann one in the latest vmx mag it looked a bit fancy ?
Dick Mann made frames for the XR,XL500 engines how many of those did he make ? I’ve only seen one that rod spry posted on line and it was a super nice bike better than the C&J frames in my book with a cradle frame .

Yeh VMX totally c****d that up. The bike in the article is a version 4, nothing like version 2, of which there a lot of photos both on the aforementioned website and on google images. The restorer didn't do much research and the magazine assumed he knew what he was talking about. I've emailed the mag and sent  photos....

Ok I didn’t realise this , I was going from research I’ve done online and the latest vmx mag said there was three versions made for the TT .
The one in the latest vmx mag is said to be the second version frame made .
The one I’m looking at is the first version with rear frame loop and the snail cam adjusters on the swingarm pivot to square the rear wheel up for chain .
