forgetting the band for now, if the dealer cannot jack up a trailer under the axle stubs, he isnt a dealer I would use again.

If its only once moving, then its wheel/brake/chain related. Not engine.

Check the connectors in the black box under the tank.

I get that and it's not funny 🤬
It's not PC to call us *friends of Dorothy* anymore we're gender fluid nowadays 😁😜😱😳

I am far from PC on occasion but then I grew up in the 70's and 80's when things were much simpler. Dangly bits down below - male. no dangly bits - female.

If someone with dangly bits fancies some fun with another person with dangly bits then so be it. Each to their own but in the eyes of most people, thats man and man etc. I dont give a foc and to be honest neither do most other people. The only people that seem to give a foc are the ones that think they are not male when they have dangly bits (or vice versa) and to me, for that reason, are the ones that have the problem.

Friends of Dorothy. Not heard that for a while and for a long time, it was seen as a badge of honour for certain groups. The only people that yeem to complain about phrases like that these days actually have nothing to do with the group it refers to normally, just taking offence on their behalf.

Good luck with the search. Hopefully someone will be able to help out. Put something in for sale and wanted too as people may miss it here. Also, if you are on the facebook group (foc-u on there too) add something there too.

I'll correct you on that. Its the Government WE, the British people have elected using the system that has been in place for decades, the results from which are typically accepted by the vast majority of citizens. Apart from those who wish us to adopt minority government because they continually support minority views
Let me correct you on that.  It’s the government that England elected.  Scotland didn’t elect Johnson’s Tories, nor did Wales or Northern Ireland for that matter.


England has the government it deserves, the rest of us have to put up with a government that we did not vote for. 



Trying to control the press is a distortion of democracy.  The current British government seems to have quite a bit in common with Trump’s America and Putin’s Russia. 
 

I was listening to an interesting debate on the radio the other day.

Fact 1 - The UK has a government elected by the whole of the UK (& NI)
Fact 2 - Scotland has its own parliament/assembly too
Fact 3 - Wales has its own parliament/assembly too
Fact 4 - Northern Ireland has its own parliament/assembly too
Fact 5 - England does not have its own parliament/assembly. As such, England gets shat on by the Welsh, Irish and Scots who set some of their own rules in their own areas but force stuff on the English who cannot set anything that only affects England due to the lack of local rule.
Fact 6 - I am bored with this :)

Taking all of the above into account, England does not have the parliament we deserve.

In days of old, you had to add in pairs. Things have moved on and singles are possible now depending on the board. x32 bit will max out at 6GB useable regardardless of what your system has fitted. x64 will go much higher than either of us can afford.

If you are after the grips and not the magazine, shop around. You can get Oxford Grips for £50.

Looks like a reasonable spec machine.

As for the reseller, I have never bought a refurb machine so cannot comment.

I have seen a few advertised recently and they are all much of a muchness

You need to look at the spec. Find out the CPU model and see what it rates as on CPU benchmark. Amazingly, you will find brand new machines with slower CPU's that the 10 year old one you are condemning to the bin. Also, make sure it has an SSD disk drive that is at least 256GB and 8GB of RAM if you want it to last more than a couple of years.

Building your own is another option but I am finding that more and more expensive these days.

So that's what the bloke is doing with the litter picker and black bag. I always wondered.

Seriously though, people on community service or in open prisons should be doing that work.

So the bloke who is employed to do it is out of a job...

He can have a job supervising the litter pickers. Instead of one picker, you have a team or 5-10. MEans 5-10 times as much rubbish gets cleared each day for the same price as before. Result I think
