General Discussion Area / Schoolkids on strike.
« on: 15 February 2019, 18:09:41 »
Imo it is despicable for children to be dragged into politics. One teacher who supports the action said during his verbal dysentery like ramble today, that if any kids leave school and vote Tory, then teachers have failed in their duty.
It looks like it became a protest against climate change, Brexit and Trump.
I would like to see any staff who supported this sacked and banned from schools for life, but meanwhile any school who employs staff who supported it, should be laughed at if they ever try to fine or prosecute parents who take their kids out of school for any reason.
Otherwise, the state has now officially taken power of parenting away from parents and replaced it with state thought control.
This, by the way is what usually happens in totalitarian Socialist societies.
Over to you STEMO.  :)

I have a little guitar practice amp here which can run off a 9v pp3 battery or a mains adapter.
Info on the back of the amp say 9v dc----200ma. I have an adapter which says 9v dc----300ma.
Will the extra 100ma make it go pop, or is it insignificant ?

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Battery drain / charging problem.
« on: 27 December 2018, 08:31:50 »
A few weeks ago I found the Omega had a flat battery one morning. Jump started it and it was ok for a few days, then the same thing happened again.
Changed the battery for a known good spare, but a few days later I had a flat battery again. I found it flat again yesterday, so jump started it and let it run for about 10 minutes to put some charge in. I also disconnected the Nokia Bluetooth I installed just before the problem appeared, as I thought that might be the cause of he drain.
Decided to bring it to work this morning to put a decent charge in the battery and found it flat again. Jump started it and off a I went.
After 15 miles, just before I got to work, the battery light on the dash starting to slowly flash on and off. On for two/ three seconds, then off for the same amount of time.
Just been and checked aux. belt and that looks ok, so assume this indicates alternator fault ? If so, I don't see how it would be the cause of the original fault as the car seemed fine apart from when it was left for a few days for the battery to drain ?
Two separate electrical faults, or am I missing something ?

General Car Chat / Which Bluetooth ?
« on: 22 October 2018, 12:11:22 »
I have recently got myself an iPhone and even intend to try and work out how to use it.
Im now thinking about handsfree use in the car so have been looking at Parrot kits for sale on ebay. If I get one I presume I have to then get a dedicated lead to connect it to the car ?
If so, what lead, and where does it connect ?
Is it worth looking at other possibilities apart from Parrot. Apple carplay for example.
Tia.  :)

General Discussion Area / F1 possible spoiler.

Us Brits my well have a five times Champion by the end of this week. And a very well deserved one imo.  8)
So far in Austin it has rained every session and Hamilton has been untouchable, as he is an absolute master in the wet.
Vetttel on the other hand ignored red flags earlier today and the stewards have given him a three place grid penalty  for doing so.
Vettels reaction to this has been to issue a statement saying that the red flag rules are wrong.  ::) ;D
If someone said to me now that Hamilton is the greatest of all time, I don't think I could come up with anything much to say in disagreement.  :-\

General Car Chat / Something wrong with me - apparently.
« on: 02 September 2018, 11:37:46 »
I sat at a set of traffic lights yesterday - right outside the pub which was the venue for the first Essex OOF meet, if anyone remembers it - anyway, coming in the other direction was an old Lamborghini Countach.
Im told I sat with a stupid grin on my face, like a 10 year old boy and didn't take my eyes off it until it was out of sight, and was then informed "theres something wrong with you".  ;D ;D
Women will never understand men. We are far too simple for them.  ::)

 Was taken ill last week and had to have a lung transplant today. Hope he recovers well. I have utmost respect for the bloke, and his complete lack of bullshit in all he does.

General Car Chat / Old cars are shite.
« on: 31 July 2018, 18:06:07 »
I started a thread a while back about an MGBGT owned by an old friend of mine, and how best to sell it. He has decided to send it to auction and asked me to have a drive in it today to check everything is ok before it gets collected on Thursday.

I owned one of these briefly a long time ago, and didn't have fond memories of it, but 40 years on and taking into account the progress in the intervening years, I was shocked how awful it was.
As MGB,s go, this is as good as it gets, but I wouldn't want to drive it for any distance unless I was being well paid to do so.
The only way I can try and convey how awful it was, is to say that I got back into my sons 17 year old 1.2 Punto, and it was immediately obvious that it is an immeasurably better car in any way you care to think of.
This is the actual car.

General Discussion Area / A life in 12 bars.
« on: 01 July 2018, 09:19:57 »
Did anyone watch this on BBC2 last night ?
It was a fantastic biography on the life of Eric Clapton. Very insightful, warts and all, and at times a very emotional film.
The footage near the end about the death of his son was heartbreaking to watch.
It took him until well into his 50,s to begin to experience what happiness means.

General Car Chat / Best place to sell a classic car ?
« on: 18 June 2018, 06:35:42 »
An old friend, who knows nothing about selling cars has asked me to help him sell a rather special MGB.
I want to help as much as I can, but Im far from an expert on such matters. Anyone have any advice about the best way to go about it please ?
Tia.
