  1. I thought this was primarily used to transport people (or generally one person) of pensionable age
  2. I don't know how you can do that. I feel dirty after one McD, the sort of dirty where it really needs a decontamination shower to resolve.
  3. It was a long while ago but I think it was secured under the cubby storage tray that's between the seats. I do recall removing the radio, mainly as it gave an extra direction of access.
  4. I've not had to remove the dash to do it, but did have to unbolt the trim section that goes to the handbrake and gearstick, then use brute force to put the carpet beneath those.
  5. Same pretty much of any prequel. The Star wars 1-3 didn't suffer because we knew for decades how not 4 started 9so where no 3 ended up).
  6. For me I can see the video landing page and play it with no issue, of the pics only the first one loads automatically, the last three show as links which then open in separate window when I click on them. It must be a browser setting thing. When I've walked those parts of London at night I've never thought of it as pretty or decorative, but certainly looks nice in those images. Maybe it's because when I've walked it I'm knickered and just thinking of a comfy hotel bed.
  7. If you want / need a machine urgently, I have a single group E61 machine sitting here unused near Norwich for a while but with a quick flush I think it's ready for use. Would keep the shakes away while you work out what's going on with yours.
  8. Oh, is that where he's speaking from? I was mistaken..
  9. If the news was correct and my recollection reasonable, then I think it's been called out that the person acting as spokesperson on TV himself has a house with virtually no insulation. that may be fine, perhaps he doesn't heat that house at all so no wasted energy.
  10. My micro PC deciding that it has no network connection, whilst in use and just hours after the latest Windows update. leading to hours of checking physical connections and attempts at reconfiguring things so that they work. All failed, so started the 6hrs + of reinstalling Windows back to fresh and then adding in the necessary bits of software for me to at least be able to use it for work.
  11. That's a really good paint effect you've created there, must have taken ages to paint lacquer to get it to look like that.
  12. Neighbour came round yesterday, her greyhound had managed to pull on the lead so much that it cut into her hand, and the dog had managed to get to have a go at my cat (which was sitting in their garden). Took a couple of hours of walking around and calling for my cat to finally come to see me. We've found that the cat is having difficulty jumping / climbing up, but is standing and walking OK. So, he'll be off to the vet and hopefully it's nothing serious.
  13. Mine would be nearly £80 just for being connected, with zero usage. So usage over 30m3 a year puts us past your £160, 2 people in the house, c300l/day, means that 30m3 is about 1/3 of a year.
  14. The wholesale prices have gone up by an amount they probably didn't predict, so they would then be loosing out on all energy used by consumers on the older fixed price deals. The bigger forms probably have a bit more cash in reserve to cope with that.
  15. A quick look at Octopus seems to say that there are no exit fees so you could leave early when better deals become available, even if you initially took a 1 or 2 year deal, but you'd have to check that's what they mean by Exit Fees = 0
  16. I think with 40 rattle cans, you'd get Pi**ed and spend days on end lighting your emissions.
  17. @Escape Link didn't work for me, but did search their site so know what the link goes to. Love the idea.
  18. Just be wary if he asks for a hand to remove a bargeboard. @windymiller Hope your eye is OK.
  19. I have simply taken a wiper arm with the same spindle fitting, and the old Excel arm, swapped the steel arm onto the alternative ali head. Just need to rivet it on, although it might be possible to use small bolts.
  20. I just really annoyed when people say their EV or other such thing has zero emissions. It has emissions, they're just not localised to the car. Whether it's EV which has emissions associated with the shipping, construction, repeatedly shipping components and finished product, and power generation, or something like Hydrogen fuel cell which has pretty much the same except to extract the Hydrogen they have to use power. So, keep taxing EV and hybrids etc, just tax them less by an amount that represents the reduction in emissions over the lifetime.
  21. Beware, it may turn out that any fault lies with the items in attaches to and that is in need of replacement. Many kettles have just needed a newer better fitting lead etc.
  22. I have some Ryobi 18v tools that use the slide-on NiCad batteries. I've re-celled one, and now plan to convert another battery into an adapter so that I can use one+ Lithium batteries. Buying a replacement battery was no longer an option. The problem I found with the Lithium ones is, to buy a decent brand of cell in such low volume for a re-cell it costs nearly as much as a genuine new battery. Add on the potential for circuit board failure in the lithium ones and I've given up any hope of re-celling those or the older NiCad of the same factor.
  23. I like Aaron's logic. Is he going into politics?
  24. I've not heard of "My AB14 blew up/ burnt out due to capacitor having failed", so I'd say it's probably not going to hurt to try it without the capacitor. It's not to do with speed limiting, since that's a separate unit, so maybe just try it.
