  1. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    DSC light came on erratically over the last couple of days, followed by the Brake Warning and Check Brakes message. Removed driver side cabin filter housing and inspected brake reservoir, topped up with DOT4 (small £2 top up bottle) and warning lights went away!

    Oohh! That looks exciting... very well thanks, been made permanent, which in a University is a rarity nowadays!

  4. Could this cyclist not have...

    Death by Dangerous driving, ~10 years under these circumstances would not be unimaginable.
  5. Could this cyclist not have...

    The Judge's sentencing statement using the presented evidence, including his own, he had time to shout and swear at the pedestrian twice well before the collision took place, took no avoiding action including trying to stop despite having time and space to do so. The fact the bike was not road legal was a compounding factor, he would have been found guilty with a road legal bike too with his actions... or more appropriately inaction.
  6. Aux-In mini amp

    I've connected an aux-in (behind the sat-nav) so that on occasions where the ipod doesn't have what is wanted we can plug something in. However, the input on the aux is a bit low and you get volume shock when switching between modes or if Traffic Alert cuts in. Is it okay to fit a mini-headphone amp, like a FiiO to have neutral volume situation and not harm anything? http://www.ea-audio.co.uk/fiio_a1.html

  9. Aquarium woes

    Friend of mine has one of those socket thermostats, which acts as a back up to the heater. It has a probe which you can pop in the water and if the heater controls go bonkers it will cut off the leccy. A bit like the one here https://www.amazon.co.uk/Biogreen-TER2-GB-Thermstat-Function/dp/B005N96SBS And something along the lines of these for high/low temp alarm purposes https://www.amazon.co.uk/Digital-thermometer-external-internal-temperature/dp/B00FJV3GJM/ref=sr_1_sc_1?s=outdoors&ie=UTF8&qid=1499687234&sr=1-1-spell&keywords=termperature+alarm
