A few years back I parked my beloved Carlton in the shadow of a microwave mast and I got locked in. Unlocked it, and right away it locked itself again: I had to lower the window and use the door button to get out! :o

I had a Western igital 1.5 GB external drive which lasted a few weeks, to be replaced under warranty by a 2 GB one - which itself failed after a few more months. Does that give you a clue? :( :(

1.5GB and 2GB tells me that this was a while ago?

Oops - I meant 1.5 and 2 TB!!! :-[ :-[

If you manage to get the Sounder open, I have a couple of unused batteries in a safe place somewhere which you are welcome to once I have found them! ;D ;D

Understood, Nick; but DO they charge only a few minutes labour? I'm sure they would charge waiting time as they must "supervise" the operation, which also includes vacuuming out the system, etc.
Do I trust garages? Nope - apart from Serek, of course.

But that notwithstanding, surely the cost of the gas is trivial compared to the cost of labour, etc? My BS detector is still buzzing loudly!

Just another excuse to extract more money, on the back of spurious environmental claims. >:(

I have been in receipt of similar generosity in the past (from a different member) and have made a donation  to the kind Oofer's favourite charity as he would not accept direct payment.

Just buy the love of your life a new washing machine Varche. She deserves it rather than you buggering around with a 15 year old example!

That machine is not like an Omega of that age, and is just fit for the scrappy :D :D ;)

Don't be so mean, Lizzie - Varche has kindly spared 'er indoors the regular trips to the river and the large flat stones to do the washing on by buying her a washing machine in the first place!  :P

I thought it was just me! I click what seems to be all of the right pictures, and still they want more - what a useless system. There must be a better way???

I keep getting letters advising me that my meter is old and ought to be replaced with a Smart meter, and I have always ignored them.
The last time a meter reader called I asked him if it was compulsory to have one fitted, and he said that the government dictates that energy companies try to get people to change, but I would be better off staying with my old meter and refuse to change.

I DO have an account, but rarely view it as I don't have any friends  :'( - but FB thinks that I have hundreds, not one of whom I know!  :o
