General Discussion Area / Re: Wireless Door Bells
« on: 07 January 2019, 09:46:59 »
Had a few sets in the past, found them nothing but unreliable, only 1 ringing, none ringing, always loosing signal or needing batteries.
In the end fitted a transformer, and traditional bell. https://www.diy.com/departments/byron-wired-connection-brass-door-chime/305888_BQ.prd

Now everyone hears it first time, every time, whether they want to or not. ;D
However noone likes being very near it if someone rings....Does make you jump if its near your ear!

Im a bit concerned about the half hour drive home from work tonight. Don't know if it will make it. The lights or the whole car might die before I get home.  :-\

Ive had to do similar, aux belt tensioner let go as leaving work, made it half way home.....which meant free recovery home, (AA lent me a battery, and followed me) wouldnt have been from the office.

I always remember the headline (The Sun maybe) when he was caught dipping his wick, "Paddy Pantsdown", and always referred to him by that name since.

A spent force in politics over the past few years (and majorly 'dangle berries'ed since the soundbite era), but had a major impact during his peak.

I'll never forget that weeks spitting image..

"I neither touched her left leg, nor her right leg, but somewhere inbetween" ;D ;D ;D

Thanks again for giving up your weekend to play cars!
A very noisy rumbly rear wheel bearing now silky smooth again,

Journey home was much nicer than the journey there!

Cheers!

General Car Chat / Re: Car mileage clocking
« on: 17 November 2018, 10:56:47 »
While I was looking I came across a heavily clocked A6, easy spotted on MOT records!

In fact condition, versus mileage, I reckon it was clocked every year pre mot, then stupidly clocked lower when sold

Download tests I use newsgroup servers as they can always max me out constantly
If only I could install a news client.  My right wrist wouldn't keep up with the amount of porn per second ;D

I always use Speedtest.btwholesale.com as the advanced bits show you line profile too.
Ping is just a basic ping 8.8.8.8 -t and watched for a bit

Theyve been and reterminated the connection at the front of the house, and replaced the master socket...

Ive gained 3mb so far!  Not quite what I was hoping for, but better than nowt.

Said the line was perfect and speeds may yet creep up.

The move is nothing to do with speeds, only price and service

Be interesting to see what, if anything they do then as handback threshold breached.

Ive had Infinity 2 since it became available, always used to get about 72mb download speed.

No great issue, but its gradually dropped over a year or 2 and is now 52mb, below the handback speed.

Anyway, spoke to BT about a year ago when I first noticed, but they wouldnt do anything, this time they acknowledged a problem presumably as the magic threshold has now been crossed.

Got them coming out on Thursday, be interesting to see what they do, Pound to 1p, the swap my 'infinity' master socket for the newest generation, Perform a DLM reset, wonder what else.they will find?
