  1. When I bought a Range Rover brand new I got a bottle of champagne and the wife got a bunch of flowers - Admittedly this was from the dealer not Land Rover but never the less was a nice touch.
  2. God is the water in Scotland expensive?? We pay around £160 for the year. Admittedly we are on a sceptic tank but still £400 seems expensive.
  3. @Bazza 907 has been listening to too many radio adverts!!!
  4. So the national grid had to fire up a coal fired power station yesterday. Apparently there was no wind so the wind farms weren't producing and gas has reached an all time high price. I think until we can sort the necessary infrastructure out, mass use of electric cars isn't going to work.

    He seems to be content!
  6. I've done that - 100mph round the oval with no hands on the wheel. The oval tests the car setup. The speed is written on the lane. If you keep at that speed and the car is set up correctly it will track round without any steering input.
  7. The original leaflet for the NHS when it was launched. What happened to the dental care then?? This clearly says "medical, dental and nursing care" would be free.
  8. My brother was the lead developer on OpenCobol (now Gnucobol) - I started on an ICL1904S using punched cards at uni. Then progressed to a Dec PDP11 using C. When I went to work we used PO Coral (a modified version of Coral66) although I programmed in assembler which was bespoke as we developed the processors as well.
  9. Hi Ian We have a couple of customers who own estate agencies. I will contact them tomorrow to see if they can help.
  10. Problem is with homophones - words which are pronounced the same but have different spellings. Plurals are also difficult to distinguish when in stressful situations. The simple solution would be not to use plurals or homophones but I guess then there wouldn't be enough words?
  11. Currently being investigated as apparently it uses plurals which can be miles apart. So what.three.words and what.three.word both exist but at different locations. A mountain rescue recently got sent to a location miles away. In the end they used GPS on the phone to locate the casualties.
  12. On mine the sounder doesn't sound when setting/unsetting the alarm. The hazards flash but no sound.

    Line of Duty

    Useless fact - the first series of Line of Duty was filmed in Millennium Point in Birmingham in the offices where I worked. My claim to fame (such as it is) is that the AC12 offices were actually my offices. The interview room I have used many times for "interviews".
  14. I retired just before I was 55. I think you need to consider what you want to do. My wife suffered with a rare blood cancer (under control now) and took early retirement. I went down to 3 days a week so I could support her. I then decided to retire. We run a boarding cattery and I still do bits and pieces for the University but on my terms. It's important to have something to do otherwise you will get bored easily.
  15. We have had 2 sheep attacked in a field near us - 1 died from it's injuries and still we see people walking their dogs down our lane not on a lead. They cannot control the natural urge of a dog to chase sheep.
