Re: Heater box control cables

I know it sounds daft but you`ve not got it to the wrong end of it`s extreme travel have you (trying to open when it`s fully open already)? Other than that, is the outer cable clamped securely?

Re: Sinclair C5

That`s a brilliant idea and really nicely done. I would buy that tomorrow as it would be cheap to run and perfect for nipping to all the places it`s impossible to find parking. Except, it still has the downside which crippled the C5 - it`s SO small and SO low down. I`d be terrified in normal traffic...

Re: Sinclair C5

It's amazing that when the C5 was introduced everybody scoffed at Sir Clive, but with the benefit of hindsight, could it be that this form of electric personal transport was years ahead of it's time? Andrew. Always the way - mind you they were way too small and low down (and slow) to be safe. I was...

Re: Pinto Exhaust Recommendation?

I`m not surprised, that`s pretty impressive! I was quite good at counting backwards in 7s; 80, 73 etc - which could be useful now as they use this in testing for dementia, so who knows :D :D :D or :( :( :( :(

16x - Bloody hell your teachers were harsh, we drew the line at 12! That`s getting really hard isn`t it? I`d have to be breaking down into 10s & units to do that.

Nick, are they taking pre-orders - maybe better book your plot now ahead of the rush?

Re: Pinto Exhaust Recommendation?

Vaguely related, well it involves numbers, but this has fascinated and bewildered me for years. There is a number known as a googolplex. This is a number so large (honest to God I`m not making this up) it has so many noughts after that if you tried to write it down on paper the volume of paper would...

Re: Pinto Exhaust Recommendation?

It`s logarithmic Paul, not linear, IIRC someting like a 3dB increase is a doubling of Sound Pressure Level . (But to complicate it further a doubling of SPL doesn`t mean twice as loud, as your ears do `turn it down` as it gets louder :? . That`s why you can literally hear a pin drop but your ears ar...

Re: Stolen!

I think also the prisons are pretty well full so they probably err on the side of leniancy - `cos there are no places inside! So build more prisons then - don`t move the goalposts! Instead of £70Bn on HS2, more police, more prisons, something that`s actually needed. Container ships in the channel wo...

Re: Stolen!

Police were once feared but now largely ignored. To be fair Andy, the police`s hands are tied, we in Greater Manchester have lost about 20% of the front line staff in 10 years, There are just not enough to go around - plus the paperwork :o They`ve got kids being stabbed, schizophrenics wandering th...

Re: Stolen!

Couldn`t agree more Paul, I`ve heard people (in the old Hulme flats) their lives & living conditions were so poor that prison was just a change of scenery, just a hazard of the job. Personally, and many (Deb) won`t agree, For rapists, child killers, people who prey on old people, terrorists, I`d hav...
