    I dont have anywhere to park a car to charge it as we are second in from the road, besides, if we cant even fit a power shower, I dont imagine a car charger is on the cards. I have looked at the zero motorbike, but at 120 miles a day, it means I would need the added power tank, and then I couldnt fast charge off a car charging point, plus I would need to charge at work if I used the lights night driving

    once they got into the maths of it all, they left me trailing in the dust.

    if its any consolation we have just been having a discussion in the office regarding the two phase voltages and phase rotation and currents in cables coming from a Schott T transformer, that takes 3 phases incoming at 120 degree phase rotation and outputs two phases with a 90 degree phase rotation- talk about brain bending.

    It has been known that people take a standard 240V lamp and just replace the bulb with a 12v one

    cat litter is a good (and cheap) absorbent for getting the last residues up, of course you then need to get the cat litter up.

    they havent even standardised the domestic smart meters yet, change suppliers and its a good bet your smart meter wont be compatible with their system.

    with the current infrastructure, providing the energy will be nigh on impossible, these charging points take nearly 3x the average power of your average house, if every house had to have a charging point, we would need to generate 4x as much as we do now, add to that the existing networks are not designed to give those loads. my house is fed (along with 15 other houses) on the same size cable as 1 charger would require, add 1 charger to that and the cable would fry in an instant. multiply that around any house older than about 5 years old, and you will see the size of the problem.

    Sea Level Change, Since 1970...

    but the first document (waste exemptions) posted quoted a later date and 50 cu m per linear metre of bank rather than the out of date 2007 reference in the BA document that only allowed 20 tonnes per linear metre (thats still a lot of spoil per km of river bank)

    Calendars In Print

    I usually only get an email from paypal telling me I have spent something, but that may be a paypal setting. The good news is that if there is anyone that still wants to order a calendar, there are still a few available, so if you want one and havent ordered one yet, get in quick and dont miss out, once they are gone they are gone.

    now here is a novel thought, how about going old school, and all of us carrying something like one of these, then just scoop and dump on the side as it was always done.
