  1. clever clogs kids who fiddle with network cables whole building was off the air this morning , no internet or networking maintenance were stuck , other parts of site worked ok so I got an old hub and tried that , the lights blinked and the network came up until I put the last cable in .. some one in the play room had plugged two ports together on a hub with a cable .... despite denying it he got his ears burned ... by me , by staff , teachers etc

  3. woman comes up to our little group who are talking ... her car on the way to the centre hit a pothole ..and loads of steam came out of the front of the car . so she continued driving and parked up down the lane ... it was a Suzuki jeep we went out and the coolant was gone ...and the engine block ... you could fry an egg on it , in fact you could smell the heat 10 meters away .. and the help full guy offered his help by pouring his watering can full of cold water into the filler , thats when the water hit the block and the steam shot out of a ruptured pipe .. I exited stage right and buggered off in my car in case the block had cracked ......

  7. sick of looking at utter shite dressed up as decent motors , I actually bough a shed of a Fiesta many years ago ..... and then just put it in the garage to have everything fixed , new rad , brakes , new steering rack etc as a result it went for years and rarely needed anything doing to it until the rot took over .... and then I sold it on ... which was the same with the next car , a rebuilt Micra .....

    wheelie bright idea

    one always has the option of choosing the cleaner recycling bin
  15. the newer than new wheelie good idea ... the wheelie bin bench ... I was driving home the other day with my head in the clouds when this idea pooped into my skull why not make a bench top to put on a wheelie bin !!! I had a bit of old wood that would do the job , just needed to measure up the stays and refasten them on then I added some edging to help stop items rolling or blowing off , some paint , and the bin lid to keep the rain / prying eyes off sorted !!! now I can pop my tool safely on the bench instead of having it roll off the lid and into a bush ...
