In his case, I could make a good case for Martini-Henry or Martini-Enfield. I'd explain away his dodgy byline by saying that he had been confused by the Martini Girl jokes, which caused the expression "martini whatever" to enter common usage. I think I could get my client off.

Sounds good I had thought about doing some vinyls and I'm pretty sure we've got a CADCAM, infact, no, we do. I would be very happy if you could pass that on to me, 'cos the one I've used is off the internet somewhere and it's not exactly high res although that doesn't show on the engraving of course.

I'm not trying to make any money out of this although one or two people have said they might be interested in high end clothing type stuff. The laser is cheap and of course I pay materials only. If we get a few more members we may be able to get an insurance company involved etc.


Oh and for those who want to discuss the stupidity of Labour sending the Snatches and/or wolves/ defenders etc. designed for NI into Afghanistan and Iraq please use the "tow cars" section. Thanks

Was he saying that the use of mis-matched military techniques and hardware in given theaters of deployment is an age old and somewhat inevitable result of perpetual preparedness pitched against finite information.

Or is it that if the Navy used Ospreys there would be peace in our time?

Anyway do you mean:

–adjective
1. extended to great, unnecessary, or tedious length; long and wordy.
1375–1425; late ME < L prōlixus extended, long, equiv. to prō- pro-1 + -lixus, akin to līquī to flow; see liquor


Or Prolix the lubricant?
