There have been plenty of scandals regarding modern tumble driers catching fire.  ;)

Largely, I suspect, because users CBA to clean the filters.

Tsk tsk made in china - says it all!
Beats British efficiency - I have something on its way from China. Its taken ArseholeForce a week for their plane to get from China to Coventry (never knew a plane could stay up for a week), and then been held up in customs for ages.
They're waiting for you to get a little more desperate.. So you don't baulk at their "handling charge". ::)

Hmm. Bumping for recommendations on cam cover gaskets as I noticed the nearside engine block is a bit damp when changing the oil. ::)

Given that I installed (and attempting to run) as root, id be surprised if permissions?
Depends. The Perl interpreter might run under its own user.

Sounds more likely that it can't find the file, though. Is the source referencing an explicit path that's different in Debian to wherever the software originated?

poor bugger .. but still lots of crap in the media ..

BBC .. released from hospital ..

Sky ... "baggage handler"

Star ... "crewman"

"Get surrey" ...   A flight aborted take off and returned to a Gatwick Airport terminal due to an incident

Shame they can't even attempt to be accurate .. :(
Journalism is a profession for lazy bastids, and mainstream journalism is about the headline rather than the story.

Yep, as soon as you see a story where you have some expertise or involvement, you realise that everything they print is a complete waste of paper. ::)

Would have to be permissions on itself rather than the serial port group, but worth checking the permissions on that file and that the user is in the modem group.

Other than that, I tend to avoid Perl if I can. I'll give AIO a try when I'm next sitting at a suitable Debian machine.

I bought myself a pair of yellow-tinted polarised glasses for night driving, but they give me a headache and I look like Bono in them.  ;D

There's no way to drain the TC apart from removing it - even then, I think you'd struggle.  ;D

The flow into the cooler is the return from the TC, I believe, so it may be possible to bleed some fluid from the cooler return once you've refilled the main sump and hence flush out the old fluid from the TC. Probably not worth the hassle though.

The GM phone wiring is via the larger multi-way connector into the radio, not either of the 8 ways.

Switched and unswitched power on the 8 way into the radio is swapped compared to some conventions, so you might need to swap both ends of the 8 way on the kit - or just bin the lot and wire it up to the prewiring connector behind the glove box.

Try driving a vehicle that's a couple of inches lower than the "norm". >:(

Levelling systems on modern SUVs seem to work on the assumption that every other road user subscribes to the fad that is completing the school run in something one rung up the automotive evolutionary ladder from the tractor.  ::)

Yep, all the speaker cables pass through there and there's a jumper connector where no Bose is fitted.

Nice to see you again Captain. :y

Looks like Pins 34, 35 and 36 go to the phone module. At a guess from looking at the diagrams, 36 is ground, 35 is audio in from the phone and 34 is the signal that mutes the radio but I'm sure someone will confirm.

What will change things is when / if the gun lobby becomes toxic from a financial perspective.

Schoolkids getting gunned down is one thing, but, if it starts hitting their bottom line, they will start to take note.
