General Discussion Area / Shipwreck looters
« on: 23 June 2018, 15:37:00 »
Two men have been sentenced to 4yrs and 3 1/2yrs respectively for fraud and failing to report their haul to the receiver of wrecks after looting HMS Hermes which was sunk by U-Boat in the channel in 1914 with the loss of 44 lives.Apparently the artefacts they'd recovered and [some] sold has been valued at 150,000.

General Car Chat / OOOPS!!

Got home last night to find a letter from DVLA saying my direct debit for the V70's tax would not be renewed on 1st July if I didn't get an M.o.T. certificate for it,puzzled by this I looked up its paperwork to find that the M.o.T ran out 3 weeks ago :o It doesn't seem anything like a year ago it was tested,why oh why in this day and age of computerisation can no reminders be sent out for this?

General Car Chat / Rarities
« on: 20 June 2018, 20:40:19 »
On my way to/from work I pass what was until recently a bus garage,this has now been split down into different units.One chap has taken two of these and started doing business as a garage,fair play to him whenever I pass he always seems to be busy.Anyway some of the time he drives about in a Hillman Avenger-don't know what engine he's got in it[certainly not standard Rootes mechanicals judging by the sound 8)]and it's got a large bonnet bulge fitted,it does look at bit tatty it must be said.However his other car which appears to be an absolute minter is the Avengers slightly larger relative a Chrysler 2L resplendent in Gold with a Beige/Cream vynil roof.

General Discussion Area / Old name revival

In the next few days/weeks the East Coast Mainline-currently run under the Virgin Trains name will be changed[don't know whether it'll be same company running it or a different one]and it will then become LNER-hardly an original name but there you go.Of course whether the service will improve or not is an entirely different kettle of fish.

I'll try again-typed this once and when I hit post site disappeared

Omega General Help / Code reading
« on: 20 June 2018, 07:50:48 »
As mentioned on my other thread "strange one" I've spoken to a bodyshop with a code reader and they'll read the codes this Saturday.Question is once codes[if any]are read and then cleared-in case they're historic-how soon after clearing would any current codes re-appear?

Omega General Help / Strange one
« on: 17 June 2018, 21:17:57 »
The Omega has been running fine on the commute for the last couple of weeks,but yesterday I stopped at a set of traffic lights and after a few seconds standing thought I detected a slight roughness/very light vibration to its running,i'd just put this down to imagination/stupidly large bore exhaust of the car immediately ahead when the Omega just cut out.It started and died a couple of times,then I managed to keep it running but it cut out a further 3 times in less than quarter of a mile where I parked it in the lock up.Been down there today to put radiator on the V70,so I had the omega running to see what would happen-if anything-but once again it sat there in the garage[door was open and I was outside anyway]ticking over as sweet as you like.So I'm at a loss as to what was going on yesterday :-\

General Discussion Area / TT

The first superbike race was a good one.A new lap record was set with a 16min 50sec lap to give a speed of just a smidge over 134.4mph from a standing start :o A flying lap of 135mph looked at one point to be a realistic prospect-perhaps in next Fridays race?Meanwhile today is mad Sunday and the first supersport race and also the [to me] real nutters go.I'm talking of course about the sidercar men.Fancy hanging off a tea tray bolted to a low flying largely unsprung missile with your head or backside brushing the tarmac/walls/kerbs/hedges.They're totally bonkers :D but great to watch :y

General Discussion Area / Healthy eating?
« on: 02 June 2018, 19:32:02 »
It's reported that-latest figure I saw-5 people have died from E-Coli in America after contracting it from eating Romaine lettuce :o So much for avoiding greasy burgers and eating "healthy" rabbit food instead :-X

General Discussion Area / Dead...but not!
« on: 30 May 2018, 20:00:55 »
It was reported earlier that a journalist opponent of Putin had been shot dead in Kiev-guess who was getting the blame ::)-then some time later the "victim" of this assassination turned up at a press conference :o

General Discussion Area / Hero
« on: 28 May 2018, 11:02:21 »
A young chap has scaled the outside of a block of flats in Paris to the fourth floor[bare handed]to rescue a child hanging from the balcony,simply saying he did it because it was a child.Apparently the childs father had left him alone in the flat to go shopping >:( Wonder what if anything will be done about the father.This good Samaritan has been contacted and thanked for his selfless act by the mayor of Paris.There are some good people out there :y

General Discussion Area / Home?
« on: 27 May 2018, 19:21:41 »
The recent couple of threads of members buying houses and relocating[good luck to them by the way and I hope all goes well for you]set me pondering about home.
I moved over to Sc***horpe 25yrs ago this year,in that time we flitted to different parts of town 3 times-all rented,however to me this is where I live but whenever I think of or mention home I mean my native Yorkshire where one day I shall return-either upright or more than likely as a bag of ashes.So for me home is different to where I live,how do others think?Is home where you actually live or is it-like me-somewhere else?

General Car Chat / Speedo/rev counter
« on: 26 May 2018, 21:24:28 »
The day the new radiator went on the speedo and rev counter stopped working[but the rest of the dash did]tried re-seating the clocks to no avail,checked all connections etc in engine bay that might have been disturbed during radiator job,checked the three plugs near battery as suggested by DG.All of this resulted in speedo/rev counter working most of the time but not always.What I have now found[as I've been using it all the time while the V70 has been out of action]is that if I push the brake pedal before turning the key and then once the warning lights come on I pause for a count of two before actually starting the car the speedo/rev counter work but I must do both the pedal push and pause then they don't. ???

General Discussion Area / Strange e-mail
« on: 22 May 2018, 18:24:38 »
Just had an e-mail headed i.d. request-customer consent GDPR it filled the whole screen so I couldn't read any of it and I've deleted it.Anyone heard of this or know anything about it?

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Switch or wiring?
« on: 16 May 2018, 20:58:21 »
More often than not when I open the drivers door only one of the interior lights the one nearest the drivers side[the ones above the mirror]illuminates.Sometimes however they both light up,the dimming until off when closing/locking the door works as normal whether just one or both lights operate.Is this likely to be a fault with the switch that operates when opening/closing the door or a fault in the wiring somewhere?
