  1. Hmm that is odd. Can’t say I understand enough about computer words to know what’s going on there.
  2. That’s a strange one… is it just chrome or have you tried other browsers too?
  3. Sorry missed this one when it was originally posted. This is something that has been discussed previously. I’ll bring it up again.
  4. You know you have the right sort of mates when they send you screen shots like this… not even anyone off here!
  5. He’s fine… twisted his knee a bit I think. Hobbling round and getting lots of sympathy!
  6. Been using the MX5 for work this week. It’s getting dark in the mornings so used the sidelights. Today I managed to leave them on so of course flat battery! Thankfulky there were a few kids about who were late being picked up. So I got a few of them to try and push start me! They failed. But my step son (who was one of the kids) fell over whilst doing it and hurt himself… d’oh! Thankfully one of the other staff had a jump pack and got me going. Other car news: we went to Pwllheli to pick up bits for the 2CV. Loaded up the Elgrand with the wings and doors and set off. But the back brakes failed noisily, no tools meant an RAC call, but for the second time in 8 days their response time was under 2 hours. New discs and pads will be needed but we got it home. I called the chap welding the 2CV today too to see how he was getting on with it. “All done you can come and get it” was I his response! Excellent! Will get it back Saturday and then we can focus on the fitting the body panels we have for it and the bits which need beautifying.
  7. I’ll have to start and hand straight over. I have a set of books which need marking for tomorrow…
  8. Indeed!! Lovely day 2CVing…
  9. Ooooh!!! I mean my main car is out of action… I could just buy a replacement!
  10. So instead… @Mrsbrownnova’s C5 has sat idle for about 9 weeks since we went to Scotland in it. It needs a new tyre badly, but Mrs_b prefers the 9000. So it’s not been done. However, with the 9k out of action for a few days at least I suppose we’d better retrieve the C5 from its spot. First job start it… Jump pack deployed and… it doesn’t have enough juice left to jump a diesel! MX5 to the rescue!! (The one dry spell of the day…) Sadly the Mazda is too small to jump it either! So the battery goes ok charge for a couple of hours whilst we run errands. With some juice it goes first turn of the key. Excellent. I’d phoned the tyre place who said they had what I needed and were open til 3. So I rocked up at 2 to find the shutters down and the place closed… arse. So I treated it to a jet wash. There’s a big nick out of one of the tyres which we must have picked up on the way home from Scotland, so I’m not happy with mrs b, babynova and the womb raider travelling in it until it is done. Cue me phoning every tyre place in the local area who all end up being closed (despite Google saying they’re open), not having it in stock or super pricey. Sorry Mrs B you’re in the Elgrand this week!
  11. You might well be right. I was thinking through the symptoms again and that does make sense… If it is I’ll look out for a compressor off a scrapper.
