Case Closed

OK, all points made, topic closed.  Let's get back to straight Syncro matters. 
 
Several new members have joined over the last few days and they must be wondering what they have got into.  Several people have joined because they are looking for a Syncro.  Another has bought one and will be bringing it to Melbourne in a few weeks.  I hope to meet with him and look at it.

Andrew,

What the heck are you on about?

I have to say here and now how gobsmacked I so often am at how people on
this forum so often either misconstrue content proffered and more
particularly, fail to get the drift of what is being said, particularly
where its said in a lighthearted manner.

So let me spell it out for you. The only ones who have demonstrated an
understanding and recognised the humour proffered on this topic is quite
plainly Brian and I. As I said before and I repeat, what the heck were
the rest thinking?

So please don't come back at me complaining about a perceived lack of
humour on my part. Instead, please look a little closer to home.
