Once again you have hit the spot, Dave. I stand corrected.

Thanks Dave, I just knew I was asking for such a comment! :y

P.S. If Lizzie wants female smileys, they will have to be naked, and bring beer :)

Thanks for the clarification my charger is a rather expensive one which is said to be a conditioner so maybe I have been lucky not to have caused problems.

Some conditioners use pulse charging techniques and are therefore contra-indicated for in situ charging, so I echo what TB said and only use it in situ if it definitely says that you can.

About 10 or so years ago I read that East Ham (London, for northerners) had such cameras and could scan and identify 500,000 facial images per second! If you had ever had a photograph on ANY official document. even a library ticket, you would be on the database and recognised. Worrying.....

Because there arenít many mechanics these days, just fitters.  ::)


And they're expected to diagnose and repair increasingly complex systems too - carburettors and distributor ignitions are simple and so are their faults. That is not true of modern inter-connected electronics
Fully managed engine systems are easy as well. Probably more so than carbs and dizzy timing.  Its a different type of skill though, one that many old school cant deal with.

Indeed. And the real reason "old school" mechanics could diagnose and repair carbs and dizzys is that they took time to understand how they work and were thus able to work through a sensible problem solving procedure from symptoms to cure, trying things to reinforce their findings along the way.

Managed systems are just as simple in their operation, but these days they can't be @rsed to get on top of their game, so just replace parts at random. >:(

Agreed, Kevin. Back in my field service days (a lifetime ago!) we used to call such people "panel jockeys", who replaced circuit boards until the equipment worked, and brought the faulty boards back to the workshop for us cleverer types to repair properly!

I recall a story from some years back wherein a man on the gallows about to be hanged called out "I am Jack.....". He never finished the sentence, for obvious reasons, and it was assumed that he meant to claim to be Jack the Ripper. Lizzie, any thoughts?

Sympathy to you, Mr. Tilbo. Research has shown that Man Flu is far more virulent than the female variety, and we suffer the agonies of near-death, so take care and enjoy the ministrations of 'er indoors!  :y :y :y

Does anyone remember what we used to call the Honolulu penny? Later pennies had Britania's trident resting on her knee; earlier ones had the trident resting "on her lulu"!
