    Where did everyone go?

    Whew, lads. It's been a loooooong ass time since i posted on the public section of the forum. Rumours of my death may have been exaggerated, but only partially. After 2012, my interest in Supra's waned pretty heavily and while i still have my '91, it's pretty much fit for the breakers yard at...

    So - what's everyone got planned for the holidays?

    It's pretty easy to cook Turkey without making it dry. When preparing it - put it in breast side DOWN for at least an hour when cooking, then turn it the right way up - breast gets infused with the juices and fats, skin goes extra crispy :)

    Re: All the gun control laws in the world won't stop the muslims....Paris, your time Having lived there, and having owned handguns, yes, they are. You just have to be qualified, and pass a test so not every fucking idiot can walk in and buy one.

    So - what's everyone got planned for the holidays?

    Personally, i'm spending it in Guernsey with my gorgeous partner - got all my presents bar a load of chocolate for the grandparents and in-laws :) The one thing i'm dreading, is the inevitably dry, flavourless turkey that i'll be presented with and have to feign interest in :D

    Let's talk: CryptoCurrencies

    I'm mining dogecoins until the end of the month. I jumped on it after trying FTC (worthless) and LTC (hard to find a half-decent pool). Now i've mined about 6k coins in the last 7 days. I already factored in the extra £50 in electricity usage for both the 6850 and 7970 i'm using, and after...

    So - what's your take on the whole Russia / Ukraine / Crimea situation?

    I'm paying very close attention to the news (as should all of you), because i think we're about to witness the resurrection of the Cold War for at least as long as Putin and Medvedev control Russia. There's pressure from the general public here to act, but just as much to NOT act. Ukraine...

    1990 Toyota Supra Turbo Buildup - Satans Little Helper...

    Yah - i just read the post you made a few years back about it - will check them, too. I'm hoping the wear won't be too bad, considering it's a fairly low mileage engine that's been well maintained during its life.

    1990 Toyota Supra Turbo Buildup - Satans Little Helper...

    Because it's been machined, or because it's possible the head may have gone soft?

    1990 Toyota Supra Turbo Buildup - Satans Little Helper...

    It's been over two years since i updated this thread, and i still have the car, although since my move to the UK, it's been kinda languishing in France. It still starts & drives, but still needs the valve clearances to be sorted and for it to be fitted with an AFPR. It'll take me a few months...
