Still looking for one of these chaps. Any breaking going on? :y It fits in the channel, above the wing.

General Car Chat / Car sales.... Not
« on: 05 January 2018, 22:42:36 »
I was in the Merc dealer yesterday to find out about the new E class petrol hybrid, and asked the receptionist for a sales rep. "In connection with?" She asked down her nose, (I was in scruff order). "Take a wild guess" says I. Blank look ensued. " Why do people come into a car dealer and ask for sales?" Nope, penny didn't drop. Departure in despair. I doubt she will last long.

.....a bottle of 21 yr old Balvenie malt, now sadly depleted, could have been Talisker, but there's always next year. :y

General Discussion Area / Samsung Blu ray player doesn't
« on: 14 December 2017, 18:09:58 »
As above, I have the BD-h8500m blu- ray plus freeview recorder. Unsurprisingly, as the warranty has just expired,  the disc tray fails to open. I've tried all the suggestions I can find on t'web, but none specific to this model. Any ideas to resolve this?

General Car Chat / Failure to stop after accident
« on: 16 November 2017, 16:26:04 »
 >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( While I was stopped and pulled in tight to the side of our narrow lane, a horse box scraped the rear OS of SWMBO's Jazz. It didn't stop, but probably didn't look in side mirror to ensure clearance. (Young woman driver.) Reported it to local fuzz shop and just got a reference number. The last time this happened to me, they gave me the owners name and address, and I claimed direct from him, no aggro with insurance etc. I am reluctant to report it to our insurance, as they have a habit of loading you as if it was your fault. >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
Can anyone tell me what is likely to happen with this report?
'Bugger all' did I hear someone say? :-\ :y

General Discussion Area / Motorway service access
« on: 27 October 2017, 18:38:47 »
During a chat today the question was posed, is it against the law to use a service road to access motorway services. I used to exit the M1 years ago at the Watford Gap Services using their service road as it saved me a few miles, and was never stopped by the occasionally parked police car.  The signs say "Authorised vehicles only", but is this enshrined in law?

General Discussion Area / Google spy?
« on: 17 October 2017, 12:57:32 »
As most of you know I am a techno numpty, so can anyone explain what is going on here. For the last few days, when I go on to google on our iPad, it immediately offers the sites that I have been looking at on my PC. I have not knowingly set up any network between them, so how the h**l does Google/Apple know what I was looking at on the PC? >:( >:( >:(

General Discussion Area / WiFi extender
« on: 16 October 2017, 16:10:41 »
Amazon have a WAVlink N300 for 17. Has anyone used these or have any knowledge of them? I need to use wifi to reach the Mondeo on the drive, and also for the iPad in the garage. :-\

Omega General Help / Brake discs
« on: 07 October 2017, 17:10:57 »
On clearing out the midden garage, I discovered an unmarked box with two new vented brake discs, 286/7mm dia., in it. I can't recall when, why or where I got them. :-[ Will they fit the rear of my 3.2 Elite saloon?  :-\ :y

General Discussion Area / Rain forest
« on: 06 October 2017, 19:19:38 »
Can anyone remember being told how computers were going to save the rain forest as they would do away with the requirement for paper? I guess the rain forests have all gone by now, given the ludicrous amount of paper dross that comes through my letter box. >:(

General Discussion Area / OOF
« on: 03 October 2017, 19:15:10 »
I know I've said it before, but having had snide clever dick replies recently following a request for help on another forum, I would just like to say again what a pleasure it is to read posts on this forum where members help/or are helped. I have just had my cam belt done FOC by James, and other members have parts sent to them to help out.
Thanks again OOF, a great forum.
