Not really sure if I should be posting this here, but... It seems that Yahoo will now be charging for hosting its various groups, including Ariel mc and Colchester lathes, all the previous content will be taken down unless a fee is paid, robbing gits. You tube has also changed - there's more ads than content now - unless you pay a fee, of course! Turn on the TV, it takes most of the evening to watch a 90 minute movie. Shame there is no ad blocker that works for all this tripe.
I guess the Ariel mc group could combine with the club, seems as though most are members already, but the content is slightly different. Poor old Colchester lathes may fall by the wayside, although there was a member prepared to set up a new website some months ago, he appeared to get few takers. I've downloaded all the content applicable to my old lathe, but much more will be lost forever.
OK, rant over
