with apologies to Ogden Nash...
Poor power to weight ratio when compared to fast developing gasoline engines of the time. Also requiring airports to carry two types of fuel circa 1928 anyway, now would be three. Also diesel hard to start in cold weather, plenty of problems really.
You know Mr. G that new pick the picture over and over to send a message is a real pain to us old blind guys. Almost not worth it. I can't find my spectacles anywhere:) Oh god now I have to do it again......
Thanks for your explanation of the issues. All your reasons make sense and none of the "promotional" type articles mention anything negative. I've read that German tests with diesels resulted in black smoke trails , not what you want in a bomber...I'm not sure what you mean about picking on a picture? Is this new? They are messing about with the Blogger interface, and so far I see its different, not necessarily better. But for me, the interface still requires one to click on the "comments" text at the bottom of the text?
Well when I go to leave a message and click I am not a robot a block of nine different pictures is presented that I have to pick the correct ones such as 'pick all the ones with crosswalks'. Then click 'verify' That is the only way I can then publish my message. If you miss one you start over with a new set of pics. Yea that's a pain overall. Small grainy pics and hard to see all the mountains or all the cars or all the streetlights etc.
Oh, that pain in the ass security thing. I hate them. Three or four tries minimum for me, a robot could do it faster. Try bypassing the "prove you're not" step and just go to "publish your comment". Let me know if that works?
Ok Mr. G will try with this message.
Gee it worked! Who woulda thought! Thanks for the heads up makes it much better. Cheers!
