I often speak to people obsessed with there trade in allowance ,end of the day the only bit that matters is what you have to pay, it matters not whether its added to the trade in or reduced from the purchase price :y

;D having worked in the auctions for 4 years, had loads of big bargains!
usually paid half retail, ran them a year or 2, then sold on for more than i paid!
having said that, I am conversant with most tricks the auctioneers use,

its pretty difficult when your lusting after a particular/model spec, etc to see the bids bounciung off the walls and the auction houses own bidders, but once you know, its easy to say no thanks,often the bidding stops then! the auctioneers then have a conflab of its close to reserve and offer it to you at you last bid, which of course was the rough price you had determined having given the vehicle a good going over in the run up,to be the right price, you would pay for the car,

if a dealer waants a particular model and has none on the forecourt which he knows he will shift easily they will often bid over trade price just to keep thier stock moving around,if a large dealer,car supermarket etc, has a car sat for moe than 6 weeks its often shipped to another dealer, then sent to auction if it still dont sell, its all about keeping the forecourt looking as if its busy

I've often wondered how kosher the internet bids are.  :-X  ::)

quickest way ive ever found is to dose the nest with wd40, as its oil based they hate it,hover around for a few hours trying to get back in then off to the next place :y
Nah, petrol and match, all sorted in 15m
And the fire brigade wash away all the wasps with a high pressure hose  :y
Then, when you're out of hospital, you can start on rebuilding  ;D

Best advice is not to use it. But definitely don't use it for programming. Ever.

Don't be a slumlord landlord - get a proper pest control company in  :P ;) ;D

Otherwise, I hear Elon Musk was selling flamethrowers recently...
.

Get our glorious leader to operate the flame thrower, he has a history with gas powered things. ;D
I can confirm, if its a ground nest, a litre of petrol and a match does sort it out, but dress up well (I put on my full bike gear)
How will lycra help?  :o
The only bike is one with a petrol engine strapped to it. Poofter MAMILs don't ride real bikes.

Be very careful if Mrs STEMO complains of having dry eyes and buys an over the counter bottle of eye drops. :-X It only takes a few drops added to your food and it's bye bye STEMO. A US wifey has just been charged with doing this and killing her husband. :o The bad news is it obviously fails the not detectable poison test. :-[

Yep. That's no good. What she needs is a sudden, tragic, accidental camping equipment failure in his vicinity to send him into orbit and . Now, ... <rubs chin> :-X
Some bastard mention that at work today.  They are getting years or entertainment out of my personal tradegies

Granted, was out in the open, but notice on power-on, my quad had 18 locked in sats ;).  Granted, also much newer GPS hardware than what goes into standalone portable units as well...

Indoors, sitting at my desk, my phone is locked on 12 sats..
I suspect if you could access the serial data, whilst it might claim to "see" 12, its locked to far less....

GPS Test reported it could "see" 20-odd, and 12 were "in use" - I can only assume it can only use stats it's locked on to.. still, my old iPaq used to get me around just fine with a lock on about 4 sats, so.. ;)
That sounds like it might be an older chipset that has a limit on sats it can use simultaneously, rather than truly locked on, if it was indoors.


What does the tool say outdoors?
