I've had so many diseases, that they'd probably kick me out before I had a chance to finish the questionnaire!  :o  ::)  ;D

Well......that's Dorset farm girls for you. God only knows what secretions could be found in the Marina. ::)

All long since dwarfed by the pile of iron oxide, I should think. ;D

.. hence I haven't got a "Facebook feed". ::)

Google still knows what you've bought .. if you have gmail, they mine your emails for receipts; and if you've got a MasterCard, they bought the transaction history from MasterCard...

Don't have GMail or mastercard either, but it doesn't matter what they know because I don't see any of their Ads.

Teleportation is the answer to movement of both goods and people.

Problem solved.

Jeff Goldblum will tell you that teleportation does not end well..

Moral of that story? Don't have a Netgear switch in the connection.  ;D

Oh, I've got a compressor for home use but this is something that can live in the car with some probability that it will be able to do the job when needed, unlike the last crappy sealey one I bought. It's a lot less effort to use when you're not trying to balance and prevent the crappy mild steel frame of the thing from buckling at the same time, too.  ;D

I've found that most of the electric ones won't get anywhere near 60 PSI, at least not without suffering terminal damage. This one only takes a few strokes of the pump given that it's probably got almost as much cylinder displacement as the glider tyre has volume. ;D

I got so fed up with not being able to buy a tyre inflator (manual or electric) that would last more than 5 minutes. Then I came across one of these in a vintage shop:

I saved it from being "upcycled" into some hipster's table lamp, gave it a bit of TLC and it's the best tyre pump I've ever had. Tackles glider tyres (60 PSI) without breaking a sweat at all and the only thing about it I'm likely to break is my toe if I ever drop it. Superb bit of kit. :y

Going to prison from Cumbernauld is probably a step up in the world...
Well, given the choice between prison in Perth and free in Cumbernauld... :-\

I ended up blocking the two big breather pipes on plenum and lead the pipes to oil catch tank in front of the idler pulley. I have emptying hole at the bottom of the tank in which I connected 6mm pipe and led that under front bumper where it is easy to put a bucket under it and empty the tank.

Fuel tank fumes pipe and also the smaller breather pipe was left untouched.
And you wonder why you have high rpm... ::)

This is your air leak... The breather should be closed, not open to air...  ;)

Yes, indeed. You have created a leak of unmetered air into the intake.

If you want to use a catch tank, then you need to block the smaller breather pipe from the plenum in addition.

This will probably be one of the microswitches in the driver's door motor.

Of the two switches, one "parks" the motor in the desired position whereas the other detects if the door has been manually locked or unlocked and causes the other doors to follow suit. If the latter fails, the ECU detects the car as having been locked again and winds all the locking motors back down.

There is nothing more patronising than being forced to try to talk to a computer. Wtf did we invent keyboards for? ::)

New series of Grand Tour starting soon, for those who subscribe

I think Mrs. KW does, but I'm probably going to be washing my hair or something. ;)

I'm of the opinion that it had pretty much run its course with the original cast, so may as well put it out of its misery, in all its incarnations.

I am pretty sure you can disable the alarms on the APC Smart UPSs. I think you have to connect them to a PC and run a configuration utility to access the setting, though.

A UPS might not be ideally suited to what you want to do, however, as they are designed primarily for delivering large amounts of power for short periods (long enough to shut down the system plus a bit). Some even shut down after a few minutes with no PC communication even before the battery gets depleted. It sounds like you need the opposite - a few watts for a longer period.

The other option is to open one up and either stick a sticker over the hole in the little sounder that makes the noise, or get the soldering iron out and remove it completely.
