Amazingly the new BMW M5 V8 engine reverses the normal flow of intake charge and exhaust flow. The exhaust valves send the exiting gases out into the middle of the V in the block and straight into the twin turbos also mounted in the V. (hard to imagine how they deal with the heat from the turbos there)
Well the Saab museum has re-opened and all those quirky cars get to stay together thanks to three Swedish interests: the city of Trollhättan, SAAB AB and The Wallenberg Foundation.

Occurred to me on the way home tonight that driving is a learned art. Some people think its just a basic skill to be learnt to get around in today’s society but its more than that. Some people can really drive and I don’t just mean racing drivers. Some people just shouldn’t have a licence. They mentioned it on Top Gear last night, some bloke in the UK had failed his theory exam for the British driving test something like 92 times !!!

Well I have sort of done 3 Drupal websites now. This one and www.healthtech.com.au for my business and www.thecouch.biz.
Slowly getting there with basic editing and adding functionality. Have to try and get The Couch FB feed into their website next. Inserted an RSS feed into this site but having permissions issues getting it to show up for users not logged in.
Much easier to use than say Frontpage and Drupal gives better results than notepad 🙂

Finally managed to set an image as the default header !!! HOORAY !!! Makes the site look much better. And to think I downloaded and installed all those extra modules for nothing. The functionality was bult into the core.

Well I’m slowly learning ths drupal thing. Started last weekend and had a very basic site up but discovered it was in the wrong directory. So this is my second attempt. An I had such lovely phrases in the first one 🙁
Well here goes WordPress, bye bye Drupal.
slowly migrating and playing with the newness of a new CMS.
