General Discussion Area / Bercow is going.

His much bullied staff will no doubt be breathing a sigh of relief. Sally might find it more difficult to find the time to shag members of his family when hes at work from now on though.
I detest the little poison dwarf, in case it wasn't obvious.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Reversing sensors stopped working.

As above, don't even get the initial beep when put it in reverse. Where to start - do they have their own fuse near the rear somewhere ?

MS has been pestering me to install a Windows 10 update for a while, so last night I did. It took ages to install, so presumably a big update.
Since then, I cant access smileys on this or any other forum I use. I click on them but nothing happens.
Anyone know why ? 

General Car Chat / Corsa questions.

56 plate 1.2 sxi corsa. How much would ved cost ? Whats a realistic mpg figure overall ? Advert says "chain rattles on startup for 1-2 seconds". Likely to be terminal / a major problem, or something that can be lived with ?

Omega General Help / Key stuck in ignition.

Its been one of those days. 190 got slower and slower until it would barely move. Changed the fuel filter assuming it would cure it, but now it wont even start. ::)
Laptop charger / mains adapter packed up later today.
Drove the Omega to work tonight and when I got here, couldn't get the key out of the lock. Tried several times - wiggling, jiggling, using almost brute force, but it wont turn back to 0 and wont come out.  :(

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Electrickery escaping.
« on: 17 July 2019, 12:56:16 »
Every once in a while, after the car has been parked for around a week, I go to start it and find the battery as flat as a witches mammary gland.
I drove it last Friday and was going to drive it again yesterday evening, and although everything electrical lit up and worked ok, there wasn't quite enough grunt in the battery to turn the engine over.
Battery is newish and I would be surprised if its on the way out, but its possible I suppose.
Where to start to look for the source of electric leaking out of the car ?  :-\
Its not my strong point tbh. Not quite sure what is, but I know electrickery isn't.  :D

I know F1 has massive underlying problems, but today at Silverstone it produced a superb race. Im sure even TB enjoyed it.
Wheel to wheel battles all over the place and Hamilton winning a record 6th British GP.
Couldn't have asked for much more. :)
Time for Vettel to hang up his helmet I think. Hes now so desperate Im almost embarrassed for him.  :D ::)

Why anyone would want to watch the grass grow at the tennis or cricket is beyond me.  ::)

Heres hoping.

General Discussion Area / Thanks to Toledodude.

I mentioned to him yesterday that I could do with a couple of small parts from the Omega he was scrapping. About an hour ago he dropped them off to me, without even knocking the door so I could at least offer him a cuppa as payment.
A very kind gesture, and proof the spirit of OOF is alive and well.
Thanks again mate.  :y :y

Last Friday I sat in the car waiting for swmbo to come out of Sainsburys and this song came on the radio. I found it deeply moving, and actually had goosebumps.
A few minutes later the DJ said people were calling in to say they had to pull their cars & trucks over as their eyes were filed with tears.
Jim Radford is 90 years old and wrote this about his first trip as a 15 year old merchant seaman, which was the Normandy landings.

How do i post pics from iphone ? 

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / NCDC time hasnt auto adjusted.
« on: 06 April 2019, 20:16:36 »
Clocks changed last week, but the time on my screen hasn't. Im pretty sure it should happen by black magic without me doing anything ? 
Any ideas please ?  :-\

General Car Chat / MOT pass.
« on: 12 March 2019, 18:18:15 »
Not the Omega but the 190D. Apparently the emissions/ smoke test has been tightened up since last year so I was a bit nervous, but it passed - with Diesel in the tank rather than the usual WVO.
Got a few advisories - slight play in steering box. one small area of rust I had missed, and a deteriorated rear number plate.
Not bad for 29 years old and 240,000 miles.  8) :)

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.  :)
