    Keep at it, and looking...

    How come?

    Those “polishing, cutting and grinding wheels” are abrasives, and removing metal is what they are designed to do. If you do that for long enough and/or hard enough there really will...

    I think a properly barbecued burger is still hard to beat, though I am also partial to chicken thighs.

    Yes, do you have a photo of the case back please?

    The front looks lovely by the way!

    Edit: The back has come up very well too.

    Our IFA encouraged us to set up a (somewhat discouragingly called) "Death Box". It is a secure, fire-proof, box that contains all the necessary details regarding our wills, financial affairs, birth...

    I have my photos on a local hard drive (twice), a local NAS, and on Flickr Pro.

    You might also want to take a look at the COUNTIFS function.

    This is a formula I use: "=IF(COUNTIFS($N$2:$N2,N2,S$2:$S2,S2)=1,1,0)"

    Arrived this morning - the SSB045 (6T63-00B0), so it has the meca-quartz movement.

    It was on the bracelet but personally I prefer the Isofrane-style rubber strap.
