Searching.....searching......searching....

Gday all, Is it just me, or does anyone else find it a tad frustrating trying to find posts that we've made in the past.
I know that we can use tracker (grab beer, sit and look till you find it) and the last 75 comments or is there a quicker way that i'm too dumb to find.
A while ago there used to be all the models up the top where you click on the respective one you wanted and away you go. As I only get on here late at night every other night, I lose half the posts i've responded too. Maybe a search window???

Now the v8's pingin

Ok was on my way to town today and decided to ckeck if the kickdown was working so I opened her up a lot and what do u know PING PING PING P-PING PING! So I retarded the timing a notch, took her for a drive and she's still pingin, retarded some more - still pingin! The motor has been built for unleaded - steel valves and etc and is currently running on unleaded. but I dont think the dizzy is right for unleaded, gonna start running premium but will this stop the pingin (with the right timing set of course)? is it possible that the vaccum advance mechanism is stuffed and advancing the timing too far?

Can anyone give me any info on what to look for when buying a digital camera.
Will be buying one on the cheaper side of things.

Found a kodak with 3.2 megapixels on sale for $179.00 All the other camera with 3.2 megapixels were around the $600 mark and cameras around $200 only had 2 megapixels. What else should I be checking out with this camera.
