Hmmm, I used to look here quite a bit more ofthen in the old days of 56k Modem connections and so on. This MI5 nut spamming half the NG to death isn't helping either...

On another note, we, the Dutch saabforum members, had a nice SAAB meeting the other weekend, check out the photo's at: http://tinyurl.com/yr72gy Next weekend there will be another gettogether, I'll post a link to the pics again, if appreciated...
