To be fair to them, If you've got a dead flat battery in front of you, it's impossible to tell if it's any use or not. Their advice will be on the assumption that, 90% of the time, the battery has gone flat because it's reached the end of its' life unless there's something obvious like a light that has been left on or no output from the alternator.

They aren't going to be able to tell if there's something more subtle like high current drain due to a vehicle fault but they will get called out daily by some folk until they tell them to get a new battery.

1 hour? Amateurs. Would have taken about 24 seconds to free him using old-fashioned methods, surely?

Might have been some collateral damage, but.. Meh! Clearly no great loss to mankind. ::)

The thought did cross my mind how long and how many bullets would it take TB or as a quick release backup hits with Sammy. ::) ::) ::)
Give him the printer treatment. I'm sure Microwave and Head would have no longer been united by the bottom of the stairs. :y

Give the omega a good shove into a lake :)
Sound advice, Sir Tig  :y

The sea is better.  They dissolve quicker.  ;)  ;D

Ahh. So that back stuff on Charmouth beach isn't actually natural ooze from the cliffs at all? ???

The attraction of NAS devices is that they can be "always-on" without consuming a stupid amount of leccy, unlike any usable PC. If all your media, documents, etc. are on a PC it's a real ballache to have to remember to turn it on before you decide to listen to some music in bed using your tablet, etc..
There is a place for always on shared storage. For some it will be cloud, for some it will be NAS type devices.  The cheap ARM based ones (and even Atom based) are pretty dire though, both in performance and integrity.

When something as "good" as, say, the HP gen8 Microserver is available, and pulls 30-35W with a pair of shitty 3Tb Toshiba 3.5" drives (unsurprisingiy one of them has popped up a prefailure warning, *sigh*) is available for around 100 have cashback incentives, its a bit of a non brainer.  And it can run your favourite Windows/Linux OS, which is far more robust than the bastardised toy NAS systems.  Granted, enterprise class it ain't, but its a cheap way to a small, quiet, efficient NAS.  Just don't use that crap onboard controller for RAID5 ;D

Yep, agreed, that's where my money would go but most people want an "appliance". (= they CBA to install software on it, etc.) ::)

I think you should be very worried. Either she's telepathic or she's reading the forum. Either way, you're "toast".  :D

We don't have a free trade agreement with the EU as last year it cost us 13 billion to belong (less whatever they decide to spend in the UK) and this would have only increased.  Based on current growth rates our EU bill was projected to be 17 billion by 2022 after the rebate.  Which had we voted to remain, it's extremely doubtful whether we would have been able to have retained the rebate in the next round of EU budget talks.  ;)

Yes, and it was only going to be an "ever increasing" bill along with "ever closer" union as the EU took over more and more responsibilities. It was always going to end in tears one way or the other. If this is how that plays out, so be it. The tories just turned out to be the muppets who blinked first and offered a completely unworkable exit from it all. ;D

If james wants to watch me being slapped and it perks him up then so be it  ;)

Good idea on the photography,  too.

Yeah, we can film you being slapped so he can watch it time and time again.  :y

Don't forget that once everyone in Ireland is happy we've got Gibraltar to sort out. ;D That must be next week's job in the never ending fustercluck that is BREXIT. ::)

Well we will never give that up. Kevin. Do you think you will be able to pilot the rescue planes I mentioned in and out of Gib?

Baggsy the Dakota for me. Mmmm 14 cylinder radials. :-* Next best thing to no engines at all. What could possibly go wrong? ::)

Sounds like it could be John Dodd's car. IIRC, Rolls Royce sued him for using their logo on the grille. ;D


You're thinking of The Beast, which has been around since the seventies and now lives in Spain.
That's the one. :y
