Just popping in again.  Thanks for the welcomes!  Happy New Year all.  What a strange time we're going through?  I hope everyone's coping as best they can?  I'm just browsing through the forum and I'm amazed at the amount of information here.  Someone's (Jimbob?) put some serious effort in to link all those guides in the maintenance section.  Keep up the good work chaps!

Thanks for noticing, was a bit of a task  :y

Saw him at Anfield with Take That & Rick Astley a year and a half or so ago. Fantastic atmosphere.

(Must add free tickets in our corporate box. Not my choice of gig normally)

More or less reliable than Solarwinds... Discuss  ::)

I need to update our Solarwinds regardless, but luckily we are not affected by that lovely hack!

6s batteries take about 30 mins to do normally, 2 screws, prise screen out, couple connectors, release the glue tab, replace.

Its 7 onwards thats a different ball game.

Ive ignored their figures in this all along, and used my own from the office of National Statistics.

They helpfully publish deaths this year every week, week by week, compared the average of that week over the last 5 years.  Gives a decent insight into the real situation
https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/datasets/weeklyprovisionalfiguresondeathsregisteredinenglandandwales

In this spreadsheet just look at the weekly figures tab, rows 9 & 10
https://www.ons.gov.uk/file?uri=%2fpeoplepopulationandcommunity%2fbirthsdeathsandmarriages%2fdeaths%2fdatasets%2fweeklyprovisionalfiguresondeathsregisteredinenglandandwales%2f2020/publishedweek442020.xlsx

You can see how it ramped up from average figures to over double the weekly deaths at its maximum, then reducing once noone was going out, and now ramping up again

There is also some Covid data in there but I ignore it in favour of the above, as they are absolute figures, not depending if someone thought covid was somehow involved.

Same boat here, keep looking at auto trader, but cant find anything that really appeals to swap the E-Class for.
