    That is VW up!, our is 2012 with 1.0 gasoline engine, 75 HP. It's not available in USA, just like Polo isn't either if I'm correct?
    The pick up was VW Amarok, it's probably too small for USA, you can see them here but pickups are rare here, even Ford Ranger and those are too big for our roads.
    It looked like the Amarok was about the same size as a Ford Ranger and Chevy Colorado (or the old S-10).

    Any of you Dr. Who fans?

    My wife wants me to add a Dr. Who inspired theme to my clock app. So I've been looking into it... Circular Gallifreyan just doesn't fit well on a wide tile and it's too small on the medium tile.... Anyhow, ran into a "Simple Gallifreyan" that better fits the tiles, I'm just not sure if I'm liking the results. Been taking some liberties, but as it isn't an official Dr. Who numbering system, I'm thinking fans wouldn't mind too much?

    So what do you all think? Keep going or drop it?

    Even worse is work your tail off for three years on one project and you get cake and soft drinks once the product is launched. Not even a lousy T-shirt to say that you helped launch this new product...
    Best part was when they showed a video of the project management saying how 'excited' they were about the project approval. They couldn't have looked more bored, honestly.

    It has been a long slog getting this project going but you'd expect the management to be a bit more happy about things.

    So I have a quick cat story for you. Don't worry, I don't plan to load the thread with cat stories but this is amusing.

    So our cats are becoming more comfortable with us and the house. Food is of course a good motivator for most animals and an easy way to gain trust.

    Now our cats are still using their safe room (my wife's office) where we have put all their things to make them comfortable. If you ever decide to get a cat or cats it's best to put them in a small room until the get comfortable with the new smells and noises. This goes for kittens to.

    Anyway, we are trying to feed the cats a bit more as we find them a bit under weight. We don't think the breeder fed them very well, the cats are both rather tiny but in good health. One of our cats is very vocal. The other is the more skittish one

    Anyway, we fed the cats just after dinner and they have dry food to eat when they want. The cat food we're using is Whiskers in the little foil packets.

    When we were getting ready for bed we left two packets down stairs on the island bench for tomorrow.

    We were deciding if we were going to put the cats in the room with the door closed or let them roam. They decided to go downstairs and the vocal one was making some noise.

    Suddenly the vocal one stops making noise, there's some scrambling around and then I see the two them come running up the stairs and into their room.

    The cats had decided they were going to have a late night snack later. The vocal one had stolen a pack off the island counter top and hid it in their litter box. My wife found it when she went to check on them before going to bed. To say we both found this rather funny is an understatement. I've never seen a cat steal a packet of food before and hide it.

    The cat looked pretty guilty too. You almost wish you had a video recorder.

    They're still settling down and I think our vocal one is fairly intelligent, which will be interesting to say the least. :P

    Sounds like typical management, unfortunately.

    It's same size as Ranger yes, but that still way smaller than Ford F150

    Yup, they're going to keep about 80 out of 320 positions, the rest are all moving to other locations. So 25% chance of success😁

    I'm sure when the UK strikes the free trade deal with China that will kill off what's left of manufacturing here...especially the steel industry. :P

    Here's my take on this...

    The GF's new step father has two boxer dogs (Ashi - female and Trooper - male). Now, Ash's current owner is her third... he's had her for 5 years. Her 1st owner was Japanese - hence the name spelling - and unfortunately was abusive. Because she was moved to three homes within her first year of life (including to her current one), she is very, very attention seeking...you pretty much have to pet her A LOT once you get to know her, and when the house is crowded, she will hope from person to person to get attention. You'd think that the fact that she's in a stable and permanent home would have gotten her out of that habit of needing to reassured that she's safe and loved, but that fear is so ingrained, that's how she will always be.

    If the breeder didn't feed those cats appropriately, i wouldn't be surprised that what you saw was a survival instinct kicking in, with both cats working together or independently to ensure they get food. I hope they grow out of it, but don't be surprised if they don't.

    This is why I'm not a fan of cruelty overall, and especially towards animals or little children.
