Mrs TB looking at it. The only one she buys in a year.

Her verdict is there is nothing but shite on.  So looks like Amazon Prime and Netflix will be renewed for another month ;D

She was using her laptop last night, and suddenly loads of magic smoke started escaping.

*Sigh*, I expect she'll be wanting a new one now.  For now, she's using the MacBook, but better not let her use if for too long as she finds it (rightly) frustrating, and I will be needing a dustpan and brush.

General Car Chat / Launched Zafira

I have absolutely no idea why one of my brothers sent me this picture of what looks like a Zafira, but I thought it would make a great caption contest :)

To buy a 24-27" 1080p Smart LED TV for sensible money (ie, sub approx. 150).

Thinking it would be trivial, as I have bought such items with ease previously, I ripped out the old 17" analogue LCD TV and its digibox last week.

Today, I have refitted it all ;D

Wow, he did the marathon in under 2hrs.

20yrs ago, I never thought I'd see that in my lifetime, when we were still 15 mins off it.

General Car Chat / Wheel part name

Hmmm, does this bit have a correct name, as my searches for centre caps seem to only return the smaller round ones....

General Car Chat / Petrol can recommendation
« on: 21 September 2019, 14:44:14 »
Anyone recommend a 5l petrol can?

I'm cheesed off with the cheap shite, which invariable leaks, either with the cap on, or when using the spout. It seems none of the plastic ones have proper seals now, and as I'm sure you can imagine, I get nervous about escaping petrol fumes in the garage.

I know metal is the answer for better quality/seals, but I don't want a 10l can due to size.  TBH, 5l is more than enough to keep my lawnmower and generator watered for 2-3 years.

General Discussion Area / BBC reporting...

...about Oxford's council proposal for charging every company 600 per year for each parking space they "use".

So the dumbass bimbo reporter, commenting on the impact to the JR Hospital, stated this "could run into thousands or pounds".  No shit sherlock, 2 parking spaces would run into thousands of pounds, and I'm sure that the JR has thousands of spaces.

...despite me checking the thread length with a useless egay seller, they have sent me some bolts with insufficient thread on.

Can I use a normal die to put a longer thread on?
