Windows 7: Today [6]

Snow tires are speed rated like all tires.
With the thicker tread the heat build up is faster and not able to dissipate.

Go over 210km/h heat build up starts disintegrating them.
The tread will peel off in chunks or in one big piece like a semi truck tire when they blow.

Of course for safety 210km/h is not going to damage them necessarily the first time but age and length of heat build up.
Might be the first time or the 10th but there will be a last time.

Grown in Arctic Lapland, I've learned to be very careful when driving in winter conditions. I've seen it all, how little it needs for a driver to lose control. I've also seen the damage caused by a driver who thought he knows how to drive the icy winter roads...

It can be rather amusing to watch people try to drive in the snow and ice here.....it doesn't seem to sink in that you might need more space to slow down. Also, many people with four-wheel drive vehicles go off the road, because they mistakenly think it will let them drive normally.

As my uncle told me many years ago, four wheel drive helps you go, but it does not help you stop.

I'm pleased to hear that you've been allowed to drive again Kari, as the others have said just be careful you've come a long way in a short time and we'd hate to see you go backwards.

Here's one you wouldn't get travelling with you on those fast roads, I'd be a gibbering wreck

I also bought myself Tetris Party Deluxe for my Nintendo DSi XL and I also got myself a web cam. It was in Sainsbury's and on sale it's a Logitech Webcam C120, I got it for £8.
Mind you don't even know if any of my friends have one so I can use it
PM me if you like Joan and I can test your new webcam with you sometime

Thanks John I still haven't had the chance to install it yet and I don't have a separate microphone so have no idea about the talking part, oh and I already use Messenger so that account is OK.

Nope ... according to this link, this model has no mic:

Then Joan will just have to use a loud hailer across the Bristol Channel and with the wind in the right direction I should be able to hear her!

I know only one woman who could actually yell so loud! She's the mother of my first wife, my first mother-in-law. I still get goose pumps every time I see a broom stick and remember how she could fly in so incredible quietly, not detected by radars, and scare the hell out of me suddenly starting to yell behind my back
