It is based on the emission criteria at the time of manufacture. The 2006 diesel I drove until Christmas would come under the standard limit but above the ultra low one.  Our 13 year old petrol car meets both.

The French have refused to give details for some time - this applies to parking and speeding fines as well. The UK has refused to give details of UK registered cars to the French in retaliation

As I understand it, the Low Emission Zone does not apply to private vehicles? Am I right?

The opening statement on the Low Emission Zone website states that:The Low Emission Zone (LEZ) was set up to encourage the most polluting heavy diesel vehicles driving in the Capital to become cleaner.
It has been in force for sometime and my take on it was that it was older diesel HGV's. I didn't think it likely that a properly maintained car would have the ability to be as polluting due to the size of the engine.

If no friendly php programmer comes forward, how much would it cost to have the discussion board reloaded from the server?

From what little I remember of IT people doing such things at work, it actually took very little effort, just machine time while things uploaded.

Here is another way of using Zoom and Pan, this I call my Real Estate clip. It was shot using a GoPro 5 camera at 65 frames per second at a 1920 - 1080 setting. Giving a very good high definition result. It is quite short but I think you will get the gist!.

So turn up your sound.

To achieve a Pan Shot from still photo you need to use a stretch and zoom technique, which comes with my Wondershare-Filmora editing programme. I am sure that other editing programmes have similar programmes you can use. by stretching the photo out from a five second still to one of about one minute, one ca get a good close-up study:

So turn your sound up and enjoy
