  1. Thanks Steven, Andy, Ray, and everyone. It has been a good run, and I enjoyed meeting and riding with many of you, but things change. I don't ride at all now, and haven't been keeping up here like I used to. I think John and Gary will take good care of things in my absence. Good luck everyone and stay safe.
  2. thanks guys. It's been a long time, but in some ways it still feels like yesterday. I still take care of the websites even if I don't post much.

    Forum Upgrade

    I think the star means you have posted to that topic and the circle not..and if you click on either it takes you to the first new post. The threads that are not highlighted you have read. I think, LOL Lotsa stuff I'm not familiar with either.
  4. I will be upgrading the forum to the newest software version this morning. Afterward you can post any questions about the upgrade here in this thread.
  5. Welcome to our newest advertiser, Greg du Vermont for Vortex-sport.
  6. Just a heads up. When you are sent a PM, or someone replies to a PM you sent to them, you will get an email notification letting you know about the PM message, (as long as your forum email is correct). The email is just a way of letting you know you have a message, you need to log into the forum to reply to a PM. This isn't something new with this version of the forum, it has always been that way. On the bottom of the email notification it states: > PLEASE DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS EMAIL! > You can reply to this personal conversation by following the link below: > Unfortunately, some members seem to be forgetting how to reply to a PM and missing the above message, as the system has been getting an increasing number of emails where members have simply replied to the email notification. These email replies end up in the trash bin and never get read by anyone.
  7. Please welcome Pierre Thibault and the Bar Grand Galop as the newest advertiser on QuebecRider
  8. Check out Canon, I feel they are the best out there. Time to move up to a DSLR? I have a 7D and a 5DmkII
  9. Looking at the Sony website I don't see any firmware available for the dsc h1, only the h2. It could just be with over 30,000 pictures, the shutter is giving out. It might be time for an upgrade. Either way, good luck. We don't want to miss any of your great pictures
  10. What kind of camera? I would try downloading and installing the latest firmware for the camera, many times that will fix problems like that. Good luck! Edit: Just as a sidenote, we picked up a few inches of snow in the last several days. I imagine it will be heading your way next.
  11. Merry Christmas to all. Joyeux Noel a toute.
  12. Joyeux noel et bonne année Jocelyne. :)
  13. Thanks everyone! We did get 3" on Tuesday and still have an inch on the ground.
  14. Thanks, I'll check on it. Still wonder where the dirt and water is coming from? My sled only had about 300 mi on it when it happened.
  15. In the US it is not a requirement that the pumps are labeled. Most are, but not all. I haven't been able to find info on ethanol labeling requirements for Canada.
  16. It was a fine reddish sediment that blocked the filter. The pump was having trouble pumping, and I suspect the filter at the pump had been removed. Also, how prevalent is ethanol in Quebec? I have heard it both ways, some saying that there are no ethanol blends in QC, and others say there are. I know for sure there is an ethanol plant in Varennes, QC, and I understand there is a law in Québec requiring all gasoline contain 5 percent ethanol (by volume) by 2012. I can't help but wonder if this figured into my problem.
