  5. am I behind the curve or ahead on this. Next year all vehicles will be coming under 3 bands. Zero emissions (probably pay nil) , standard emissions £140 (covering 95% of vehicles on the road) and high emissions (no word yet on that price). Since most manufacturers are gradually admitting that the beloved diesels have had higher emission than what is says on the tin, there are proposals to smack £800 tag on them. Is this so?
  6. copied off an AP source By AFP More by this Author Indonesian villagers thought they had been blessed by an angel fallen from heaven when a beautiful doll washed up on a beach — only to discover it was an inflatable sex toy. Rapidly-spreading reports of a heavenly offering and fears of possible social unrest prompted a police investigation. Detectives who arrived in the remote spot soon punctured the theory of divine intervention. "When our officers arrived they saw that the 'fallen angel' was just a doll, it was a sex toy," local police chief Heru Pramukarno told AFP. Villager Pardin, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, found the doll when he was fishing off the remote Banggai islands off Sulawesi in central Indonesia, police said. The discovery in March came a day after a solar eclipse swept across the area, a deeply spiritual experience in the world's most populous Muslim-majority country. This led superstitious locals to believe the two events were linked. Pardin took the partially inflated doll to his home in Kalupapi village, where it was treated with great reverence. His mother gave the "angel" a fresh change of clothes and new Muslim headscarf to wear every day, and pictures showed it sitting up in a chair and accompanying locals on a boat trip. Police decided to investigate after becoming concerned the increasing excitement about the "angel" could lead to unrest. MANY STORIES "We were hearing many stories, such as that the 'fallen angel' was crying when she was discovered," Pramukarno said. The problem, it seemed, was the remoteness of Kalupapi. "They have no Internet, they don't know what a sex toy is." After investigating, officers confiscated the doll and took it to the local police station, a move they said was intended to stop false rumours from spreading. It is not the first time that a sex toy has been mistaken for something else entirely. In 2012 a Chinese TV station reported a rare mushroom with medicinal qualities had been discovered in a town during drilling for a new well, only for viewers to point out that the object was in fact a sex toy for men. Sex toys have also sparked police alerts in the past. Several years ago police in China's Shandong province launched a rescue operation to save what they believed was a woman drowning in a river, only to discover it was actually an inflatable sex doll.
  7. comprehensive, I just have alot of crap on the laptop that I hang on to. Will try a clear out first thanks
  8. I bought a laptop a 3-4 years ago. It was future proof what ever that actually means. It has 500gb hard drive that is taking longer and longer to boot up. Is it feasible to buy a 1 tb hard drive and have it mirrored to make it easier transferring my work, music, bookmarks, passwords etc? Will any viruses or malware be transferred as well? can I also amp up the ram there by increasing performance?
  9. Received a call on my mobile yesterday. An accented voice that seemed to be in a factory called me. The gist of the conversation was that I was on the telephone preference service and to ensure I was removed off their lists he needed me to read out my master card details to him (never had one). He then went on to confirm my name, address and mobile number. Usually they ask you to confirm it. I hang up, blocked his number and promptly changed my relevant passwords.
  10. After 3hrs on my hands and knees and paying for it This is what he plays with

  13. saw a ktm 1200 new model on my way from work. In the pissing rain, right where it belongs. It was a wonderful sight to see.
  14. I have been trying to get mce to send my proof on no claims bonus. Three calls since January. One of the call handlers did not even bother to ask my name or policy number. I had to prompt him. MCE are known for this behavior. Will keep trying then try and shame them into sending it.
  15. they have just had another recall on DL models. It was not a safety recall as such but due to dogged persistence from members and spreading the word on forums they buckled. The recall was for wiring harness rubbing on the frame and one of the wiring connectors that goes to the ignition switch was not waterproof and was corroding
  16. I know you are not a footie fan dave but is there excitement about the town on your local team's performance? A bit of history will be in the making
  17. diesel.... to go in for more work and line their pockets
  18. Yesterday I spotted an administration error at work. I forwarded it to my super. After an update meeting this morning, somebody worked out it may have save the company £50 k. The production manager went on to award my super a £10 tesco voucher. Now, I don't demand rewards for doing my job (though it was not my job make sure the spec was right) but £10 for a £50k save???? And to the wrong person??? Anyway , my boss gave me the gift card.
  19. A man wakes up in the hospital, bandaged from head to foot. The doctor comes in and says, "Ah, I see you've regained consciousness. Now, you probably won't remember, but you were in a pile-up on the motorway on your Z1000. You're going to be okay, you'll walk again and everything, but... Something happened. I'm trying to break this gently, but the fact is, your willy was chopped off in the wreck and we were unable to find it." The man groans, but the doctor goes on, "You've got £9,000 in insurance compensation coming and we have the technology now to build you a new willy that will work as well as your old one did - better in fact! But the thing is, it doesn't come cheap. It's £1,000 an inch." The man perks up at this. "So," the doctor says, "It's for you to decide how many inches you want. But it's something you'd better discuss with your wife. I mean, if you had a five inch one before, and you decide to go for a nine incher, she might be a bit put out. But if you had a nine inch one before, and you decide only to invest in a five incher this time, she might be very disappointed. So it's important that she plays a role in helping you make the decision." The man agrees to talk with his wife. The doctor comes back the next day. "So," says the doctor, "have you spoken with your wife?" "I have," says the man. "And what is the decision?" asks the doctor. "We're having granite worktops".....
  20. Having purchased a used car (diesel) I wanted to do a oil/air filter change as no one know what kind of " service" they do? I also wanted to do the fuel filter but was discouraged by a mate wo said some times the fuel filter change may need bleeding and it can be a pain tin the back side. Any truth to this?
