I get all my nuts & bolts either from Kays Fasteners or Spalding Fasteners. Kays are on eBay, Spalding are on eBay and their own website.
Used Kays a fair bit (they do a lot of tiny stuff, suitable for models), but couldn't find anything suitable online.  I'll have a call round tomorrow - got a few options now :y

It was the wrong occasion to get too 'dangle berries'ed.  And at my age, Monday morning is too hard if I go mental on a Sunday eve.

Never use this as a pure extender (ie, it receives the signal over wifi, and re-sends it). *ALL* wifi extenders, without exception are shite, and will 'dangle berries' up your throughput, even when not using the bloody thing.

If used via cable as an additional wifi access point, it should be fine.

Use the same SSID/key. If your local 2.4Ghz wifi allows it, use it on a different prime channel to your router, but if its too busy in your area, put it on the same channel.  Under no circumstances (unless you really know what you are doing) but it on a non prime channel (sometimes incorrectly called overlapping channels).  5Ghz should have enough free channels.

And to end the day, she curbed the car driving me back from the pub.  A pub where I fancied a shandy with my grub, but they had no lemonade.

HTF can a pub not have lemonade?
surely they had some other alcoholic liqueurs to sweeten up the sour taste of the beer  :-\
Diet Pepsi, Diet Fanta and Pepsi Max were all that they could provide.  None of which would go in beer.

They were blaming it on the upcoming sugar tax, so all sweetened softdrinks have been removed from their pump things. Dimwits.  But, then, it was Banburyshire, and regulars here know that those from Banburyshire are very strange folk, caused by all the inbreeding there.

You managed to get about 10 broke then before you noticed it was left hand thread ?  ;D
I've not even tried a nut on it yet, as I know its reverse thread, and I know I ain't got any ;D

I'm guess they are M5, as the calipers has a flat battery, and the spare battery has grown a white salty substance.  FFS, grrrr

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

your favorite place to buy clicky 

or search "left hand thread"
Yeah, tried there already (looking for UK based sellers, as getting severely cheesed off with far east sellers on egay, and their 6-8 week delays).

Was hoping someone would know of a decent UK fastener supplier who will do mail order for relatively small quantities (ie, around a dozen).

Also put some electricity in the off-the-road TBE, and some air into the Battlebus, which is what Mrs TB is having to use until such time euroshite pull their lazy finger out.

Today, I slammed the bonnet shut on the Jag.

Not in temper or anything...  ...the bloody struts have failed ;D

Omega General Help / Re: Airbags self deployment
« on: Yesterday at 17:12:38 »
I've a dented spare driver door here (just swapped for un-dented version)
I will strip it out in the next few weeks and see what sensors /goodies are inside soon and report back
(unlesss blinded by airbag dust ,unable to see computer screen  ::))
Airbagwise, there is a single small sensor in each door.  Nothing much to look at TBH.

I thought that, once the ECU has deployed an airbag, it effectively logged a code and then bricked itself? I.E. it's designed to be a single-use device.
The fact that it's popped an airbag on two occasions makes me wonder if it did actually get triggered by the ECU deliberately. :-\
I believe that's for frontal impacts, when the main airbags/pretensioners fire.

I get a feeling that side impacts don't do this...  ...but not brave enough to test ;D

What’s the worst that can happen :-X ::)
You offering your car ::)

General Discussion Area / Re: Laptop Upgrade
« on: Yesterday at 17:11:12 »
SSD is pretty much a necessity with Win8 and later, so that's a worthwhile upgrade (most people don't need to splash out on the EVO ones though, bog standard Sandisk/Kingston/Crucial etc will suffice for most - in fact the laptop I'm typing this on has an old Crucual m4 SSD :)).

Most people won't need more than 4Gb (again, this laptop I'm typing on has a paltry 2Gb), but 4Gb is a shitty size - 32bit Windows will only see 3-3.5Gb, and the extra structure sizes on 64bit, which can fully utilise 4Gb, make it actually more memory stressed than running 32bit.

Neither Lenovo (consumer grade, the business grade stuff is OK) or Gigabyte are my favourites, following personal bad experiences.  If your laptop is consumer Lenovo, I'm surprised at your Rods2, given your Russian conspiracy theories ;D

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
