Re: Manafort Trial

Manafort has been a political operative in the Republican party since the late 70's. He was his campaign manager for the election and crucial in getting Trump the 2016 win.

Re: Manafort Trial

Yes, but each one who's found guilty is a new candidate for plea deals and more dirt on Trump . If you were facing 30 years in jail, would you be absolutely sure Trump would pardon you - or that he might change his mind, or forget ?

Looks like a light headwind of 7 to 10mph for Ray and the gang today. Probably no rain though. Should be OK with 25 riding, plenty of people to take turns at the front.

Re: The nightmare of self-destructing DVDs.

Ah, looks like I can play the 'VOB' files with DivX , so that's something. A way of joining up the chunks back into a complete film would be good.

Re: The nightmare of self-destructing DVDs.

Mark, you really need to invest in something like a NAS and a streaming solution. I know your reluctant and nervous but there's plenty of assistance on tap here.
