.. and their insurer won't want to deal with you directly, so probably best to pass the details on to your insurer and let them deal with it to save you the hassle - unless the operator are prepared to pay directly for the repair.

The Two Rules of Modern Management:

1. Select the correct form and tick all the right boxes to show you have 'done your job' and covered your butt. :-X

2. If it all goes tits up due to inadequate instructions and training, refer more senior management to rule 1. ::)

You forgot the bit about ensuring the brown smelly stuff lands on the bloke at the bottom of the food chain. ::)

I've always said the same about the "set topic sticky" button on this forum. ::)

Sorry to hear your in-laws were affected. I can imagine it would have been very worrying. :(

I would be a goner for sure. With all the important industry and tech that’s around in Barnsley, I wouldn’t be surprised if they hit us with multiple warheads.  :(

.. Whereas my parents live equidistant between Aldermaston and Burghfield. :(

35
Now, let us hope it never happens, but if it does, forget any warnings, just die quick without knowing what happened! :(

I'll go for that option. The alternative means I'll have to tidy up the cupboard under the stairs. :o

She probably just needs the correct cable to connect the headphone output from her laptop to the sound system.

Typically, a 3.5mm stereo jack to phono plugs. Something like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/3-5mm-Stereo-Jack-Phono-Cable/dp/B002JV4LZS/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1515926699&sr=8-6&keywords=3.5mm+to+phono

You might find you get a bit of noise as laptop power supplies can be poor. That'll probably be cured by one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Golvery-Ground-Loop-Noise-Isolator-Black/dp/B076WM732C/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1515926781&sr=1-4&keywords=hum+loop+eliminator

If you've got the need for some serious 170mph+ speed on a road this is how it is done. ;) ;) ;)

Guy Martin & Michael Dunlop on a 200mph ride down to the local shops and back. ;) ;) ;)

The bike video gives a much better sensation of the speeds they are going at. :y :y :y


The TT footage looks like it has been speeded up......it hasn't.

Utter nutters to average more than 130 MPH around the 37 mile TT course. :)

Tony pond managed  a 100mph average in a Stock Rover 827 vitesse on slicks

It wasn't standard, it had been fiddled with at gaydon.

They were quick anyway,I had three of them and loved them especially the manual one  I had
I think the fastest I've ever achieved on a public road* was in one of those when I was young and stupid (and so was the hire company who let me have it). :o

The (allegedly) Tony Pond car was at Thruxton one day when I was doing a track day. It had come bowling past me at ten tenths several times that day. My Mum had come with me and was getting bored, and they offered sighting laps in the Rover for a few quid, so.....

 ;D ;D ;D "The driver was mad. She took a bend at 130 MPH...."

* - I let my guard drop for a second and only realised as I hit 69.998 MPH. Phew! That was close. :-X

I think the other question in my mind is whether these drivers have been trained to an equivalent standard to use these vehicles airside, but just lack a piece of paper saying they can do so on the public road, or are literally "winging it". It makes no difference from a legal perspective, however...

Yep, ISTR they suffer from the fuseboxes getting a bit melty. :o

Kevin i struggle with English let alone latin,its taken me 55 years to find the bloody key to do '. ;D ;D.
No worries, and I didn't mean to be pedantic. :y

I think I did Latin for a year at school, and it was a bigger waste of time than doing the football that would otherwise have been in my timetable.. and they used to call me "the statue" when I played football. ::)

It's really difficult to gauge without being aware of the actual risk to the public. Could be nothing, could be a tragedy waiting to happen.

.. but you wouldn't be in this dilemma without having some concerns.

I think the correct response, as said, is to report your concerns to the supervisor, explaining that you are unhappy about the practise and in a dilemma as a result.

The supervisor should read into this, that he isn't in trouble yet, but ought not to let it happen again.

Are you the only party who is HGV qualified? If so, your advice is authoritative and the supervisor would do well to listen.

Hi all,hope everyone is good.This may seem a daft question but how do you put a comma over the top of a letter.For instance cv,s i am trying to put the , at the top of the v.I have tried different thing on the keyboard,can anyone help a thick brummy out. ;D.Dean.

.. and you don't need an apostrophe in the example to make a plural of a noun, although one could argue the correct form as "CV" is an abbreviation of a latin expression.

"CVs" would be the correct form without getting into latin. ::)

Good job Trump didn't get it, given how he keeps bragging about how big his button is. ::)
