  1. If I was going to get one, I have to admit that these two photos of the green could quite easily tear me away from the Magma Red.

    Wordle 338 5/6 🟨⬜⬜⬜🟩 ⬜⬜🟨⬜🟩 ⬜🟩🟩⬜🟩 ⬜🟩🟩🟩🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 The dreaded multiple choice. I guessed this 5-letter word in 4/6 tries. 🟨⬛⬛⬛🟩 ⬛⬛🟨⬛🟩 ⬛🟩🟨🟨🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Can you guess this word? Another day when the first two rows of each game were identical. Letters and results.
  3. Why isn't it called a muShmeeum?

    Wordle 336 4/6 ⬜🟨🟨⬜⬜ 🟨🟨🟩⬜⬜ 🟩🟩🟩🟩⬜ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 I guessed this 5-letter word in 6/6 tries. ⬛⬛🟩🟨⬛ 🟩⬛🟩⬛🟨 🟩⬛🟩⬛⬛ 🟩⬛🟩⬛⬛ 🟩⬛🟩🟨⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Yeah. I went to sleep on goes 3 & 4 and didn't use the third letter that I already had. I'm getting old. That'll do as an excuse. Can you guess this word?
  9. Well it is from a defence lawyer and that is what they mostly do. I thought that generally, if the accused pleads guilty, the judge pretty quickly moves on to sentencing. No real reason to hear from the defence lawyer. I would think it much more valuable for the accused to name his superior and keep moving up the food chain. I did do some reading on the Azov regiment that were the last defenders of Mariupol. They were a very far-right group. Possibly not the nicest people. There was some reading in it that said that this was what Russia was 'saving' everyone from. If that is the case, why did they attack the rest of Ukraine as well? I wonder if a defence lawyer can be done for aiding and abetting a criminal if he tries to defend one that has pled guilty? Hey this isn't an invasion, this is a 'special military operation', so there's a first for everything.
  10. So if the brakes are fly-by-wire and handbrakes are more and more becoming electric. There was a time that the handbrake was to be used in the event of brake failure to slow your car down. It wasn't taught to people as far as I can remember, but I definitely remember my dad calling the handbrake an emergency brake at times. Are the brakes actuated as a result of system failure? So something like just a good ol' fashioned spring to pull them on if the solenoids fail? I am not sure how the Skoda brakes work? Not something I checked. Ignorance to keeping up with how cars are 'progressing/regressing'?
  11. Yep. Any fly by wire car, the headlights, the brakes, the power steering etc. Most of these will be controlled by the BCU. The ECU will be focused on the electric motors, the charging system and possibly the regenerative braking battery recharging, electric drive system and battery conditions. There is just too much that is out of the control of the driver. Sure, I have seen drivers on the road where that would be considered a good thing, but I would like to think that anyone that takes care driving, would not be very impressed by where things are headed.
  12. So I first learnt about the Body Control Unit, BCU, when I worked at a car dealership. I thought the BCU was a step in the wrong direction. I have just been told today that if you own a Tesla, you have to use the centre 104cm tallscreen TV to adjust the steering wheel. Or the drivers seat. So let's say you try to do that and some sort of gremlin says that you can't do that anymore. The computer says "NO!" What else does this system control or is your car just dead in the water?

    My wife has just informed me that Vangelis has died aged 79. An incredible composer and 79 is too young. I mean, who doesn't know Bladerunner? RIP

    Wordle 335 5/6 ⬜🟨🟨⬜🟨 ⬜🟨🟨🟨⬜ ⬜🟩⬜🟩🟩 ⬜🟩⬜🟩🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 So I actually had typed in the correct answer on #4, but then thought to myself, it is more likely a different word. Put that word in and, no it wasn't. It was my answer that became #5. Bah. Humbug. I guessed this 5-letter word in 3/6 tries. ⬛⬛⬛🟨🟩 🟩🟩🟩⬛🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Can you guess this word?
