The comment about the futuristic Triumph made me laugh..."it`s a shame we`re not driving around in cars like this"......er...no it`s not  ;D

Don't forget the highly acclaimed Acclaim.

The motoring world has yet to catch up. :)

A mate of mine still drives one. An absolutely mint A reg. example.

TBH, it's streets ahead of the shite that the rest of BL were making in the 80's, largely because it's a Honda.

Now there's an oxymoron. ;D

Er no, the Rover 75 was far from transformed with the V8 and is only an expensive to fuel Rover 75,...

Yes. It made a much nicer noise, but didn't really go any better. ;D

The combination of the 2 bugs sounds a great way to DOS your own network, then. ;D

Its particularly interesting on a ship control network which has no managed switches in the system..... :-X :-[ (drift off.......loss of control....)

Well, it's like this, your honour. To save energy (in this ship that's powered by a 3 storey diesel engine), we power down the network adaptors when they're bored, and... ;D

Chromecast (inc Google Voice etc) also currently has a massive flaw that *WILL* kill your network if you leave it in standby too long. 

.. if your router is prone to being DOS'ed by a flood of packets. ;)

Have they pissed up the standard Broadcom chip pause packet issue........you know, the one that's been around for years!

The loop that sends an MDNS broadcast every 20 seconds doesn't handle the fact that the device has been "sleeping" so tries to "catch up"  when it powers up again. ;D

I suppose it was that or the BMW dealer, where Vaseline is an optional extra.... ;)

"Strange request" ?

I was almost expecting it to be for some kind of sexual favour . . . . .  ;D

.. but he drives a BMW now, not a Marina Coupe, so unlikely, TBH. ;)

German businesses have always been a bit backward in accepting credit card payments, but this sounds odd.

I might be inclined to speak to my card issuer, TBH. They might well agree that it's suspicious and refund you straight away.

I had another look last night. Changed the oil and filter and corrected the level. What a mess! The engine has certainly had a good flush. ;D

My oil pan, that normally comfortably takes the oil from a V6 with loads of space, would have overflowed badly if I hadn't had another one to hand, all this from an engine with an oil capacity of 4.8 litres. :o

Since I reconnected the breather the intake system has clearly been ingesting a bit of oil. Makes me wonder if it was disconnected deliberately.

Changed the temperature sensor but, not surprisingly, the fault remains. I had a good look at the boost pressure sensor, and its inlet looks clear. Gave it a swill around in some alcohol and put it back. no change.

Unfortunately the diag software died so I wasn't able to get in and check anything. >:(

Had a good look underneath, though. DPF hasn't been changed, or disturbed, recently. I doubt it has been deleted as they have had the car for a good few years and it has only recently started playing up.

Didn't have time to remove the EGR as it's well buried behind the head.

Problem is they live 45 minutes away, have a 2 year old and a zero year old and the only other transport they have is a sparky's van, so it's difficult to get a decent amount of time to play with it.

I'd probably better sort my bonnet struts, as another bump on the head and I might utter some unsavoury words. ::)

Yep, I've gone this on Mrs. KW's Samsung phone and it's not too bad a job and the bits are cheap. :y

I see. So the back of the car is really the road in front of you.  ;D
.. and the fire is really ice. Other than that, however, spot on. :y
