We've tuned up the search engine to help you get where you're going faster. The search on the navbar has been improved so you can search names only, or name and description. You can narrow the search to Lambretta (L) or Vespa (V) only, if you like. You can even search the Roadkill section there, too. Also improved the results a bit and included pics and prices.

No, it's not our girlfriend, but rather this.

Refresh
Nov. 7, 2002, 5:37 PM

Just cleaned up some god-forsaken code on the site, mostly to do with the navigation on the side. The previous code pained our soul, not that we got what we wanted due to some legacy requirements. After Godot arrives, we'll include everything in the new site design. (We've likely ruined some styling for nn4 in the process, because we don't have it installed anymore. We're winging it. Let us know if there are any egregious problems. But in any case, for your own sake, go get a new browser. That bug-ridden thing is antique.)

-You'll probably need to refresh the page to get a nice, fresh copy of the js and css. Let us know if any issues.

Carburetor tuning
Nov. 3, 2002, 3:30 PM

We've added some carburetor tuning info to our tech page.

Also came across something on a dirtbike site, talking about Keihin PWK carbs vs. Dell'Orto roundslides (which themselves are better than stock carbs). Excerpts:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Q: Currently I am feeling that the normal Dellorto PHBH 26 BS carburetor cannot produce enough power to clear some obstacles. So I'am thinking about replacing the carburetor with a Keihin PWK 28. Could you please let me know the merits of Keihin, comparing with Dellorto?

A: I think the 28mm Keihin will be just about perfect for your needs. It produces strong, clean power and is fairly easy to tune. The Keihin is a much more sophisticated carb with more advanced features. It compensates for a wide variety of weather changes like altitude and temperature with just a change in needle adjustment. In my opinion, changing over to the 28mm Keihin is one of the best modifications you can do.

Vietnam fire, final word
Oct. 30, 2002, 10:10 PM

A final word. We learned this evening: that the other side of the building in our picture is the worst one; that where you see the blue lettering on the front side of the building is where a drain pipe ran up the wall, which people used to escape to a lower building until it broke; that there wasn't enough water available, so one fire hose was run across the street into the swimming pool shown in the picture and drained it all day; that two of the expats who died had just recently moved to Vietnam to start a new way of life.

Vietnam fire result
Oct. 30, 2002, 2:15 PM

Today we went down to survey the damage from the fire. We must say, from the safety of a block and a day away, it doesn't look as bad as it sounds. -And it sounds horrendous. So far no one we know was hurt, though the death toll climbs even higher. A large part of a square block is gutted. A gas leak is suspected, but who knows. Photos of the building, the crowd, and, from a fluke picture of a CNN report, a friend helping out. (Does the swimming pool look vaguely familiar? See the archive.)

The city has closed all entertainment facilities for three days of mourning.

Vietnam fire
Oct. 29, 2002, 9:58 PM

Yes, we said it was an awful day. We recall that now.

Driving to the shop today we saw a massive, hideous plume of black smoke coming from the downtown area, a few minutes away. A call from a girlfriend explained that it was across the street from her office. She had returned home to worried parents. It sounded like a bad fire. We worked and came home, then worked on the computer.

It is evening now. We don't watch TV or listen to the radio, as it is in a foreign language. But someone has arrived. He tells us in words we think we understand: a rival has likely blown up a competing nightclub. (This has happened before.) An entire square block has burned down. 50 people have died so far.

What?

-A friend who works across the street from the fire was seen on BBC carrying someone. -Another left the area when people were seen hanging from windows on upper stories.

One expat is reported dead, maybe someone we know in one way or another. Friends and acquaintances could be amongst the dozens of others. -So far...

Vietnam traffic vs. clutch cable
Oct. 16, 2002, 10:49 PM

What you do not want: to enter rush-hour, stop-and-go, arm-to-arm traffic in a country of 12,000,000 scooters, then have your clutch cable snap and have to drive across town without a clutch. That is not fun. Possible, but not fun.

Email viruses
Oct. 14, 2002, 10:50 AM

Email 1: There are a lot of email viruses about now. Our system is always up-to-date and scans as clean, but we get some emails from others saying we've sent a virus. The problem we believe is that some viruses scan computers for email addresses, then use them to fake the sender's address, so the emails aren't really coming from us. If you get one, right-click and check the header info, and compare with a regular email from us.

°°

Email 2: There is a lot of spam about, too. We have filters to auto-delete messages with common spam phrases. Also, anything with a weird subject, or no subject, or simply “Hi” is deleted. Please use a subject that explains your email and don't use common spam or virus phrases.
