As per title, delivered to Brackley, Northamptonshire

General Discussion Area / Outage Wednesday morning
« on: 24 July 2018, 19:31:02 »
Following today's SNAFU where a storage system had a spaz, we'll need to go offline for about a hour tomorrow morning in order to resync the primary and standby databases. As this process needs to lock all the database tables, this means you will see the page forever trying to load, or get a message that SMF Database is too busy.

General Discussion Area / The British Public
« on: 14 July 2018, 10:14:37 »
I see there are no end of protests in Jockular land about Trump paying a private visit to one of his businesses for a quick break.

I also see that the Sir David Attenborough is hopefully being launched today, a boat made famous by the Boaty McBoatface voting saga.

I think we have to accept that the British public are incredibly thick and stupid, and getting orders of magnitude worse with each generation.

What kind of twonk would order a mirror glass for a Zafira-B when he owns a Zafira-A


General Discussion Area / Hot in TB Towers
« on: 27 June 2018, 18:19:51 »
Apologies for the intermittent nature of the site, particularly Monday PM.  The temps in TB Towers exceeded 46C, which is the critical ambient temp the physical server just shuts down.

The virtual servers should have then automatically boot up on another hypervisor, but for an unknown reason didn't this time  :-\

I was in the land of the webbed feet, and under the influence of applejuice, so took a while to reliably get everything running on an alternative physical server.

*Sigh*, more work...

General Discussion Area / Flexible Filament
« on: 25 May 2018, 18:31:19 »
I realise I'm quite a bit behind here, but I've just discovered flexible filament this week.  I'm fascinated and impressed by it.

I'm just randomly printing any old stuff with it, shame its double the cost of traditional filaments ;D

General Car Chat / A year with the big black pussy

Well, well over 13 months now.

It remains a comfortable mile cruncher, with a decent turn of speed.

I'd say on average, I get low 30s mpg. I've had the occasional high 30s from a tank, and the occasional high 20s as well.

Failures have included:
Both front CDL motors
Front lower front wishbone arm bushes, replaced with polys
A single bonnet strut
A touchscreen display (might have been my fault ;D)
A failed NSR wheel bearing...   ...twice
A failed headlight washer extender thing (probably the shit ECP screenwash that froze)

In addition, its had:
2 oil changes
Air filter change
Pollen filter change
2 front tyres
2 headlight bulbs
New number plate fixing tape ;D

I really love the seat coolers, the heated wheel, the rear blind, the sunroof, the memory seats both sides, the crappy massager (for my poor back), adaptive headlights and cornering leds, the phone and ipod integration, and the fact the DAB holds onto a signal bloody well. It seems I'm lucky in that the Jag Voice works perfectly for me in default (untrained) mode, because that is a joy to use.

The annoyances include the fact the interior mirror isn't on memory, the clock wont set itself, the touchscreen is shite. Its also a bit long/wide for city centre stuff, particularly city centre carparks.

Running costs most definitely higher than an LPG'd Omega, probably on par with a non LPG'd V6

General Discussion Area / The Midas touch. Again.
« on: 22 April 2018, 17:04:13 »
That's it. I'm not touching anything else this weekend. Every single "quick thing" I've done has either turned into an ordeal, or resulted in me having to order more bits...

...except topping up the Jag's screenwash, as I can't seem to get new bonnet struts from anywhere, so guess I'll be onto the dealer tomorrow...  ...after I've ripped ECP/CP4L a new arsehole  >:(

On the upside, the amount of shit I've ordered this weekend, at least I'll have the excitement and anticipation of Mr Postie knocking at the door ;D

Oh, does anyone know where I can get an M5 reverse thread flange nut?
