  1. At least you're still here Dave, more than can be said for most of the members now Farcebook has destroyed the forum world ! BTW, I know what it's like to be getting old....... 60 now myself..... and gradually seizing up at the joints ...... At least my brain still works...... unlike some of the woke pre programmed younger end that are up and coming....... I despair for the world, and especially for my newest daughter..... 11 months old and absolutely gorgeous πŸ₯° Photo's are available if anyone is interested πŸ˜‚
  2. I just keep a notepad file on my phone with all my usernames and passwords abbreviated to something in a fashion that only I can work out. Never had a problem πŸ‘

    Covid

    Had my jab on Friday...... felt fine all day, but woke up on Saturday feeling like I'd been hit by a train ! Only problem I've had is when I went to sleep Saturday night, I was very slow getting my head together and getting out of bed on Sunday morning, then I found I'd upgraded to Windows 11 ! Now I just have a nagging little voice whispering in my head all the time........ "Windows not Mac"..."Windows not Mac"
  5. I'd love someone to get hold of a DNA sample somehow, and prove that he's Hewitts son πŸ˜„

    Install an add-on called Fluff Busting Purity, it allows you to use and see Farcebook how YOU want it to be, not how SuckyBird wants you to have it πŸ˜€
  8. You can't beat DJI for drones. I'm currently flying a Mavic Pro, but before that I had a Phantom 4 Pro
  9. How about a beer for your barrack room lawyer Nice result by the way ?
  10. As long as you have paperwork proving they owe you, and you have been through all the effort of trying to get them to pay, the first thing you must do is send them a letter warning them that they have 7 days from it's receipt to pay up, or face a county court claim. Send the letter by registered post so you can track when it was received. If you don't get a reply by the end of business on the last day of the seven days, DO NOT waste any time, file a claim immediately with Money Claim Online, claiming the outstanding money, the court fees, reasonable costs for yourself (postage, phone calls, time spent on it times the minimum wage rate, etc, etc), plus the all important 8% compound interest on the outstanding amount from the day it was originally owed. There are calculators online that will work out the amount of interest for you, and the daily rate it is increasing by. They then have 14 days I believe (though it may have changed) to either admit the claim or contest it, from the sound of it they have no contest , when they admit it, they will have to cough up, if they fail to answer the court papers, you will win by default. The court will set a date by which they have to pay the money, if they fail, you can start the procedure to send in the bailiffs, most defaulting companies will pay up when they see this happening, but it will usually happen before. Unfortunately you will have to pay the fees up front, but these are 100% reclaimable as part of the court action.
  11. I've been in the aviation industry for so long now, I thought it was time to try a new direction........ not a completely new direction mind you !!! I'm now doing prototype development work for Lilium GmbH in Munich...... Look us up and prepare to be amazed...... lilium.com

    Warning

    This company have no powers at all to deduct money directly from your bank account without your knowledge. What usually happens is that your account or card details have been cloned, and then used by someone else online, the easiest way to use cloned cards etc. Tracerecovery then just go ahead and charge your account without any further checks, it's not illegal, but it is immoral ! ALWAYS, ALWAYS, check your account statements, and if possible have your banking set to send you a message about all card transactions or debit withdrawals. I have mine set to send me a 6 digit code every time my card is used, and the payment is rejected if I don't enter it in my bank app within 10 minutes.
  13. Right now........... it's bloody raining
  14. Appy Burpday JamersPad Oh, and Grumps...... stories of your demise were a bit premature on the Rivet then, we haven't seen you for months
  15. Shit man ! That's some serious stuff ! I don't know where to start on this one, but I do/did have a mate that took the Dignitas Clinic route a couple of years ago....... totally in secret, none of us knew anything until the day after she did it ! I'm NOT recommending that, I never would, I'd always be the one to err on the side of "it will all be OK with the right care and attention from yourself and your medics", but if it ever does look like the prognosis is BAD, and I mean very BAD........... I'm saying no more.
  16. Well, so much for coming back to the UK last month !I left Saudi (maybe only temporarily) and ended up in Norway again, sorting out all my shit from the last time I was there, and putting my van back on the road to bring it all to the UK.Then...... out of the blue...... Hi Phil, how do you fancy 6 months in Mexico ?Well the $$ rate was too good to refuse, so here I am, in Queretaro in central Mexico, topping up the bank balance, and the suntan, oggling the beautiful seΓ±oritas, and downing copious quantities of Corona by the pool at Β£1 a bottle.
  17. You should get it checked regularly if you can, and they can usually be refilled if required, the only lifed item really is the cylinder. Most of the ones we use are lifed at ten years, you will normally find an expiry date for it stamped into the cylinder itself.
  18. Best all round extinguisher, if you can get hold of one, is a CO2, it puts the fire out with no damage to other surrounding items. A dry powder extinguisher puts out the fire just as effectively, but it causes hugely excessive mess ,and terminal damage to any electrical items that even the smallest trace of the powder gets into, and it gets everywhere, including adjacent rooms with closed doors, it eats electrical conductors, slowly but surely.
  19. Good advice Rother. You could also take a look at the consumer action group forums, there's stacks of information there.

    Drones

    28 to 30 minutes per battery on the DJI Phantom 4

    Drones

    A piece of cake to fly. As long as you take it slowly the first few times you fly it, you'll get quite confident really quickly

    By the way, that upload is only 1080p, Yootoob wouldn't let me upload 4K for some reason :-P

    Drones

    This is the only one I've uploaded, I've actually sold it now as I'm moving to Saudi Arabia in 2 weeks, and they are not legal there
  24. Maybe it's time a few people got together and started their own petition..... "The people of the United Kingdom have spoken in the EU Referendum, Parliament must NOT allow a second referendum, and article 50 should be invoked immediately. Any MP voting or campaigning against the wishes of the majority should be stripped of their Parliamentary position" You need 5 email addresses of supporters to start it, I'd do it myself, but I'm outside the UK, and if it did take off, then that wouldn't look good.
