I got it too, so radi will too I think. Maybe radi just opened another account and set up a crashbarrier business

I just drove this baby for work:


It was not very nice to turn this thing on a narrow 2,5m road without sunlight or streetlights I've never driven such a large van.

Not sure if this is the right place to bring it up, but I'd like to make a suggestion:
Wouldn't it be possible to make a picture-only thread for each country and keep the lenghty discussions in a separate thread?

I really enjoy looking at photos of far-away highways, but I find it very tedious to go through all the pages of dribble - so much I barely bother to look in here anymore. Here's an example. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but a photo thread that's linked to the discussion thread and vice versa would make everyone happy, I think.

What do you guys think?

it's not a bad idea... but you can't do much in forum style page... it would be easier if there was some webpage with menus, and sidebars...
this forum is an enormous amount of data and information and our World is very very big... i think lots of topic would lose sense then...

sometimes i like watching pictures, sometimes i like commenting them, and sometimes i like joining to discussion there is something for everybody here

I think its a very bad idea,just think of the bandwidth. Assuming there's 20 pics in every post,and 20 post a page,that 400s pics. If each is 100Kb,then its whopping 40 Mb/page...thats too much even with high-speed net...

On the other hand,its easy to notice if a page has pics or not...it simply loads longer if it has...

The problem is that separate photo / discussion threads don't really work. However, I have to agree that posting 20 pics per post slows up a thread real bad. I think it's better to have them in separate albums (like I do) or post only a few per post if that specific thread page already has a lot of pics. Also, I don't think it's necessary to post 50 pics of a construction when 10 can do the job too.

Yeah, pictures often evoke discussions, so it would be no use to separate them

Those are not so bad, but to see 50 pics of a sandbed of 10km... I mean, it's very nice they take time to take them and post them here, but I usually make a selection of my most interesting pics.

Ok, those are all good points. Maybe I didn't quite think it through.

Btw, I didn't necessarily mean to keep all discussions out of the photo threads, but limit them to the photos posted in that thread, similar to the urban photo section or local photo subforums. General stuff unrelated to the photos, like future projects, road numbering systems, crash barriers, possible improvements, etc. could be discussed in a separate thread.

hm... i think these are separate threads designed for viewing pictures and discussing them little more direct than photograph subforums...
personally i don't really care... as long as i can keep track on anything interesting happening in this world beside politics

like Chris said... it is nice to select few interesting pics, not 10 similar ones so if i work it out i could make a movie out of them

Congrats DJZG
Besides beer that you can buy in dutch supermarkets I don't know very much brands. I like the Polish Zywiec beer, and the Czech Straropramen (or sth like that).
