I used to work for company which build painting robots and painting stations for cars. We were working at Volvo in Gothenburg, a mixed crew. The robot programmer was from Norway, the PLC guy from Sweden, me (user interface and process visualization) and the application guy from Germany. Every evening, when it was time to plan for the beer, the application engineer played this very, and I mean VERY loud from his PC. He had brought huge speakers to the plant. Very funny and a good time.

Here's one for you, Joerg. If you can make sense of this we'll make you an honorary Brit because it's been beyond us for generations... :lol:

No issues raised by our museum partner so that's good.
Partners in what sense? Do they describe themselves as such? I, and the many that have now seen it, think that they simply own K7, both pre and post conservation, as per the terms of the Deed of Gift that you signed off on. If they demand its return that is entirely within the terms of the Deed of Gift. 18 years and counting....

We had that Geordie accent before and I came across a youtube video explaing it - which let me fall in love with a lovely girl from Newcastle :D ;)

We so need to have another drunken night in the back bar of the Black Bull in Rothesay. One of the funniest and most memorable nights I can remember.

The tea tent is kaput! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Although ‘Operation Tetley Strike’ was a success for our German friends we soon were up and running again after the remains of the tea tent were jury rigged from the ruins of their direct hit. Bill, may I suggest something more substantial for our next outing? Something made from reinforced concrete or Krupp armour perhaps?
:D
