I'm pretty sure the Tardis runs on petrol not derv.

Sorry. :-\

Yes, never heard the doctor whining about DPFs or passed him pootling along like an old dear worrying about whether he's still getting 55 MPG, so you're probably right. :y

I don't play games.

I just need it for business, videos, and a quick access to porn. :)

You're going to have to confirm your age soon. ;)

..or did you mean that webcam hidden in your SIL's house? :D

I liked the interview I heard with a manager on the London Underground. He explained that, when they threatened to disrupt the underground services (why would they worry about electric mass transit? anyway..) the underground responded by turning off Wi-Fi in the tube. This, apparently "removed the ability for them to organise themselves".

Great, these millennials. As soon as they start to be a PITA, take their Wi-Fi away and they are immediately passivated, and just sit there nodding in the corner until it comes back. ;D

I really worry that we might have to rely on this generation to defend us in our old age. :-\

why someone bothered to mark with blue pen the tops ,when the timing marks are clearly visible (3 o'clock, 9 o'clock ) is  beyond me  ???

Monkey see, monkey do.. "I've always done it this way. What do GM know?" ;D

As good a reason as any to pull it all off and start again, new looking belt or not!

I'm a member of the worlds third largest religion.  :)
And, I'm proud to say, the United Kingdom is 15th in the world league table for my religion.
I always thought you were a Jedi :D
Does explain a lot. :y

Omega General Help / Re: Oil Leak
« on: 17 April 2019, 13:49:21 »
The most likely culprit on a V6 is the cam cover gaskets. It's possible that it could be something else - PAS pump, camshaft oil seal or maybe a leak into the valley, but I think those are pretty unlikely in comparison. Really needs a bit of dismantling to investigate. First thing to do is to take off the coil packs ansd check the plug wells are dry, though, as cam cover gaskets will leak into the plug wells and cause trouble.

EDIT: highly unlikely to be anything as serious as a head gasket, IMHO.

The biggest problem that LGBT persons face is the fact of age old laws, these laws across the world started from the same place,, that place was Religion. It has caused 99% of the problems known to mankind. Get rid of religion and the world should be a happier place.

Cannot argue with that.  Get rid of the middleman and worship God direct without the self opinionated and politically driven churches! :y :y
Amen to that, if you'll pardon the pun.

I've never bothered going to fibre as my ADSL2 connection is great and I don't want the radio interference issues of VDSL, so can't help with the fibre package comparison, but I've been with Zen for many years and don't have a bad word to say about them.

On the one or two occasions when I've had a problem it's been down to OpenReach and they've been quick to pass on the issue and chase it until it's resolved. They also drop the "have you tried rebooting it?" script and talk the technical details as soon as they relaise they are talking to someone reasonably savvy, which helps.

If they have deteriorated in service I haven't noticed, but then I've had no need to contact them for years.

I also look after a couple of web sites and domains hosted with them and find that side rock solid too.

Icelandair had one doing the lunchtime run to Gatwick when they got banned. Suffice to say that it was quite a short turnaround  ;D
Yeah, guessing the parking's cheaper in Iceland. ;D

MDF, chipboard and shed felt quote submitted
the quote for epdm and sterling board with c24 timber was too high for the poor church  :(
 ;D :D
knock it down and build an omega production line
we can smuggle them past brexit borders  :P

Dave, live with the times! It will be done with a 3D printer. Obviously not in one go, that is why Macron says it will take only five years.
Yep, 4.7 years is building the 3D printer though. ;D
Oh, and then printing bits to upgrade the printer. They'll get round to the Cathedral one day. ;D

When theyve finished protesting they no doubt will need some recovery time, so will get on an aeroplane and fly off to sunny climes.  ::)
I will be sure to send them merrily on their way. Arse first.  ;)
.. on an unpatched 737 MAX-8. :y
They're a bit hard to come by at the moment  ::) Although I am sure Ryan Air have summat suitably airworthy :-X

I'm kinda surprised they haven't started littering Lasham airfield yet.

Oh, I suppose they'd need to be airworthy to get there. :-[

I have been listening to those who seem to know these things and they have stated the roof of this Cathedral was very dense, hence the rapid and intense fire that consumed it. They state that the roof consisted of timber from between 1,000 and 1,300 trees.

If they rebuild to the original design, which surely they must, they it will take a very long time indeed to source the suitable timber, cut and shape it to the exact sizes needed. Of course the whole Cathedral took 200 years to build, but with modern equipment and building techniques it should take not quite as long ::) ;)

Presumably oak as well?  ??? 

I don't want to see 1000-1300 mature oak trees that are busy sucking up CO2 chopped down to recreate an old church.  :P  So I propose that they use modern materials instead.  How about recycled plastic?  ???

I'm sure God would approve!  :)

How cool would a carbon fibre Cathedral be? 8)
