Something funny going on with the links here but as mentioned by Nick the blue Aprilia is Ken Couzens and is out and about pretty regularly. It is a post-war S2 car and goes very well indeed.

We have images from Brooklands at www.retro-speed.co.uk but not much Lancia as you all ran away as soon as the first drops of rain fell.

My third attempt to add to this thread due to my new iphone producing photo files in excess of 2MB !!!!!

Anyway, it was a lovely drive to Brooklands, albeit in light rain for half the way. I was lucky to follow the beautiful red 1600HF onto the banking and parked next to it. A few minutes later we were joined by a 6th series B20 that, having seen us drive by, decided to join us, so, 3 Lancias side by side.

I left early, shortly after 1200 hours, the attraction of the day was more the drive rather than actually being there. Brooklands was a reason to go out and a perfect destination (after all, it's where I bought the Appia!!) and a comfortable distance (70mls) on a winters day in a car with no heater !!  The journey home was again in light rain, but I was out in Westcliff when the real downpour started !!!  So the car was put away wet, but a perfect day on Monday meant another drive out purely to dry her off. A truly brilliant start to the new year !!!!

I am now plotting further excursions for the coming months in between work on the Gussie and the B20.

Now to try with this photo, if it doesn't work this time I'm going down the pub !!!

Try this !
God how I hate this 256 kb limit on photos which is stupid considering how large digital photo files are these days, which means you have to downsize nearly all photos before posting Angry

Brian, we can't have unlimited photo sizes on this server as we'd end up busting our limit. The answer , if you want to put lots of photos , is to create a flickr account and upload there.

Steve,
It's not a case of wanting to upload a lot of photos, just the size of an individual photo, being that the supposedly upload limit is for 8 photos x 256kb is it not possible to have a higher limit? say 500kb if only one photo is posted?
Also with the apparent limitations we seem to have with this server from time to time, isn't it possible to upgrade or use something else, although I do realise that might not be practical.
It's not a case of trying to make waves just the fact of how frustrating having to resize photos can be, and yes perhaps there are easier ways of doing so than I use, but other Forums I use don't seem to be as restricted as this can be.

I did up the limit a little while ago and the space available immediately started to go down (quite dramatically). I have put a request in to increase our package size on myzen so that will help.

My photos are generally around 3.5MB so I would always have to reduce them down to put on the forum so 256kb or 500kb doesn't really matter. As a point of note, the Online Database reduces down to 800 x 600 (ish) and these come out at around 160kb a photo so if you are reducing then that sort of size should be fine.

The software isn't sophisticated enough to offer 256 x 8 or 512 x 1. You have a limit on size and a limit on number per post. Your work around would then be to post 8 times each with one large photo if we set a large size - and then we'd probably be back to the problem of space usage.

 Huh? But the SMF software allows:
"Max attachment size per post"
"Max number of attachments per post"
but also "Max size per attachment" which presumably currently set to 256? If this is set to 2048 then you could have 8x256 or 2x1024 or 1x2048 etc. Below are the settings for the Lancia Gamma Forum

Thanks Theo - to be honest I'd made an assumption on the way it works and haven't always looked to deeply into the settings. I've corrected it so now you have:
Size of Picture = 1mb
Size of all pictures in on post = 2mb
Max number of attachments = 8

As I've said we are running closer to the limit - I get the emails from the server - so we need to be careful. But I'd like the server package increased and have asked the committee so then it won't be a problem.

Happy to support higher capacity if cost is reasonable.

Thanks Tim.
It's not much more ... we're on the basic package and there are two levels above. It also means well have the ability to do others things too.

Do we really want endless images interrupting thread chats. Some people get carried away and feel they must post every picture they have, however boring. I propose a separate area devoted to members images.

I would not like to see  the chat interupted but I do rather enjoy the pictures which sometimes accompany the text and hope that my own are not too boring
