Thread: water supply

If I remember correctly, during the water shortage of 1976 the UK government issued the advice to "Save water and shower with a friend" !

 

One of very few bits of governmental advice that was worth following.blush

Thread: What Myford is this?

Now that I've read the whole page (ahem) it states the Tempest name is incorrect, and was the name of the firm that took the pictures.

I'll get something right, sometime...

 

That’s interesting, perhaps somebody should change the Myford archive pages as well.

I have always thought ‘what a great name’.

Thread: Electricity Supply

Given that Oil Tankers are being attacked in the Gulf things might come to a head rapidly and which of type of power we use in our cars and homes might become one of the lesser worries in life.

We might even have to start digging dirty coal and stop closing power stations fuelled by it, who knows where it all might end up!

Pessimist thinking over for today, the Wife says “we” are going shopping.

Also Called the Myford Tempest in the 1960s I think.

Perhaps you should ask the Inland Revenue for advice they seem to have considerable expertise in collecting money.devil

Be 'VERY' careful; if you show up on their radar they'll come 'a hunting' ya!'. you're only safe if you run a huge business & have finances tucked away 'elsewhere' or can prove 'non dom'... devil thinking

George.

 

I’m already on the list they collect from me on a monthly basis.

I have no wealth to tuck away etc.

I collect money.

The problem is I'm not very good at it.

Thread: Does Not Compute

WI love this type of system (not) one of the recent automated oddities was when I reported a phishing email to one of the organisations.

I got a reply thanking me for reporting the suspect website that I had visited!

I rather thought the error was: Santander saying they would not send an e-mail asking you to click on a link but then went on to include a clickable link at the end.

perhaps Neil can tell us now.

Apparently this Foundry featured on “We are Middlesbrough” seems like they might like work, may be worth an enquiry.

I read recently that EV charge points installed using a Government grant will have to be “smart” in the very near future.

I have just found the article again so add a link.

Charging points

Does that imply that when the wind isn't blowing (no wind generation), or it's dark (no PV) you won't be able to charge your car?

I kind of assumed that it meant something like that as well, maybe not on a dark cold winter evening when power demand is very high either!
