When setting a rat trap, don't hold it at the bait end once you've pulled back the arm and set it.  :y

Because it oppsing hurts if it accidentally goes off and gets your thumb!  ::)  :'(  :D

I've never had a car that is so sensitive to the alignment set up as the Omega  ::)  And you could really tell the difference when it was set up properly.  :y

Hi Kevin,

It shuts down completely including the fan and then goes through the ignition sequence from scratch, and as it gets hotter it'll run for less time before shutting down.

I had a quick peek in the F/E tank in the loft today and there's quite a lot of crud in there, so maybe it'd benefit from another flush.  I've got a box of Fernox DS40 (a citric acid cleaner) which I bought ages ago for it, but chickened out!   :D

Maybe I'll man up and give it a go!   :)  And I'll certainly take you up on your offer to sort out the capacitors thanks!  :y

It is true that most medications have more than one function.

Yes and some medications can have some nasty side effects!  :o   

Hookers for example.  ;D

A friend of mine went through a period of depression, caused by a lucrative high pressure job that he hated and losing his Dad.  He was signed off work and prescribed happy pills and after a couple of months his employers offered him a £50k voluntary redundancy payment, basically to get rid of him.  ::)

He took his £50k to SE Asia where he spent most of it on diving, booze and hookers (not necessarily in that order) and has been a happy chappy ever since!  ;D

It used to take rather a long time to sit and sign each cheque when I withdrew £16,000 in $100 cheques!  :D

£16k? Was this the kind of "travel company" that funds young girls trips to western European countries to meet gentlemen?  :P ;D

No.  You have knowledge of this sort of company Aaron?  ???  ;D

Not from that part of the world.. wait, no, that sounds worse. No.  :P ;D

Though you remind me of a TV show called "90 Day Fiancé" - Americans importing brides/husbands.. great car-crash TV.

Hmmm.... Although during my guiding career I might have had a few 2 week, 3 week, 6 week, 3 month 'fiance's'...  :-X  ;)

I didn't know what it meant either. :-\

Mind you I'm a little retarded. :-\

quoted just in case ;D

Quoted and highlighted just in case!  ;D

Edit: Just in case it's not common knowledge in some quarters.  ;)

even though you flushed it in january, you can't rule out sediment of a 25 year old system being flushed from a rad and blocking the boiler ,say when some inpatient **** whacks the boiler up on a Friday after being away  ;D :D

Yes... regretting that now...  :-\

Let sleeping dogs lie and all that!  ;D

I flushed it, ran a cleaner through the system (Sentinel X800) for a couple of days, flushed it a again twice and then refilled it with Sentinel X100 last January as it was kettling quite badly and it settled down after this.  :y

When I say it's kettling it's very mild compared to how it was and the boiler was working fine until I fiddled with the power knob.  :-\

The system does need bleeding from time to time though, and I can generally hear some air going through the pump which I've tried to bleed from the pump itself, but with little success.  :-\  I guess even the mild hiss though is the sound of gasses being produced.  :-\


Never seen a Profile actually take out the PCB, its usually the 3 electrolytic capacitors dry up which cost sub a quid to replace (with higher temperature ones).


I think Kevin mentioned this to me last time it played up and I still have the last PCB that was changed somewhere, so I'll dig it out and have a go, as I've found a guide as well.  :y

My 25 year old Potterton Profile keeps cutting out.  :'(

It starts up OK and runs for a while, but then shuts down for a while before starting up again.  Sort cycling I believe is the technical term.  :)

All the radiators get hot when it's running, it kettles slightly but just a mild hiss, and the thermostat appears to work.  :-\

It was running fine until Friday night when I got home after a few days away and the house was a chilly 12 degrees, so I whacked the power up to max from 3 and  all seemed well.  Ever since though...  :(  If I have it on 3 it doesn't warm the house very well at all, on Max it's OKish, but it's not right!  ::)

It's chewed a few PCB's over the years, so maybe it's time for it's next one?  ???  ::)

I think he is simply being realistic and pragmatic. He tried to corner the Tories into an official pact. When they didn't play ball he had to think again.
In other news, Theresa May has just signed up with an agency which organises events for inspirational speakers ! Whoever signed her up must be facing the sack pretty soon I should think.

What's next?  ???

Olly Robbins writing the sequel to Donald Trump's The Art Of The Deal?   ;D

I'm in two minds about Farage's decision to stand down half of his candidates.  :-\

Obviously anything that leads to the forces of remain getting a kicking at the election is a good thing!  :y  But consider this...

Had the Tories done a good job of BREXIT from 2016, not been utterly useless and spineless in the negotiations and taken us out of the EU properly on 29th March, then the Brexit Party would not exist!

Given that the Tories have made an utter Horlicks of it and the prospect under them is more of the same, I think they've had a bloody cheek to demand that Farage stand his troops down, and to be honest I think he's been lent on... big time..... by some rather unpleasant types!  :-X
Albs and Raeturbo?

Or BigGriff and Dave The Builder!  :o  ;D

Or more likely they come from the 51 'guests' who are viewing this board.  ::)  Maybe I should expect a knock on the door later...  :-\
