  1. Were at 11c outside and windows shut in Leeds, I've been trying to paint outside for the last two days but one minute full sun then a 5 min rain (can't call it a shower) and the floor is dry in 30 mins. We seem to be missing it. Might get some sleep tonight now it's cooling down, plus my office(when I working)/Den(when I'm play) has dropped from 29c to 23c and the server fan has gone quite at last.
  2. Windows phones are smart phones it's just Microsoft ain't smart at putting useful apps on it.
  3. We had one of our H&S guys visit us every few weeks and between me and mate in the office we'd pick a tune and keep singing a section till he was walking round doing the same, then we'd get you ***** you've done it again. mission complete. So after 3 - bring me sunshine bring me ....
  4. Good find I couldn't get Shazam to pick it up.

    Can Anyone Recommend A Good B&b?

    We used to book in advance with Travelodge at Great Yarmouth with Toby on site for Breakfast. On way back in Yarmouth you have Asda & Tesco for your fresh stuff. Never paid more than £40 booking early. PremierInn riverside in Yarmouth is a new build and ok. It does make your take over day better with no hassle get there.

    Trixie (Rascal's Fleet)

    Contact the seller and see if they do a re-stocking charge you'll only lose a percentage then. What make pure sine invertor did you go for? I've been looking for a 1kw 12v but half the makes on Amazon & Ebay I've never heard before.

  8. You know it's warm when you get in the van and the camera and sat nav are in the footwell and not on the windscreen where I left them. Mine was sat in the sun and lowest temp read in the van was 27c with a 2.5hr drive home. I've had to take the spinny vent thingy off the roof as I kept hitting the swing bar in the multi car park I have to use in the center. https://www.amazon.co.uk/EasyAcc-Desktop-Perfect-Laptop-Notebook/dp/B0119H3TRS/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1532623373&sr=8-5&keywords=usb%2Bfans&th=1 Can't go wrong with these but don't pay over a fiver. Work great with usb power banks & ideal for clearing windows on the boat. Work now issue these instead of desk fans and I wonder how many have gone home in last few week.
  9. Dave I've logged it at 29.2c in Churwell (& your not far from me) and high of 29.8 last week. I've had to upgrade the weather station so only been back online a week. https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=ICHURWEL6#history/s20180715/e20180715/mdaily Can't wait for the calls tomorrow from our call centers where the chiller plants have issues. Downside of a bungalow you can't leave windows open over night due to light fingered visitors on the prowl.

    The Last Post

    I used the last post at Ransworth in May, it was hot so went for the impossable and pick up a ice cream. The main mooring full and day bot section was full and the small section to the left was full and others were waiting so then noticed the last post where it goes to the houses. So spun round port stern tied up no wind so had the bow thurster ready & Kaz was away and back in no time and away we went. I said before there should be a short time mooring to pick up supplies and help keep the shop going. Once closed it can be used over night.

    Back To The Summer Of 1976?...

    10 at the time walking home from school, guy down from us used to own about 6 taxis 'Austin Princess' which ran on LPG with a big white tank in the boot. Three lined up on the spare ground over the road and the middle one was bent to hell due to the tank blowing up with the heat. Boot lid was vertical and rear door blown open & rear seats were in the front but remember the internal light was still working.

    We've only used Richo's in the last 10 years and 2 visits a year. Loyalty works for me were on a RC45 so it's £300 wedge of the cost for us. Yard staff seem to remember you and call over. Booking office on the phone well it could be Norfolk but had better chats with PPi cold callers sometimes it feels like you've rung during loose women with one of them. Never had a problem with reception till May when I turned up 30 mins early, I was walking round and it was empty so went in to be told it's 1230 (i think) fair play so went to Tesco in and out and back and parked at the boat. Walked round and was there 8 mins early as women waiting next to us said another party got the blue boat book so we went. It was a stand off me and her in the reception and 3 staff stood looking at us and the clock to 1230 lol. John on Reception can have a laugh. I'll report back in September after they read this and I'll be last out of the yard lol. Already pick the boats for next year with another change of boat.

    Old Windows Version Partition.

    Paul just thought your system is on win 10, so when we go the free upgrades from win 7 etc some kit had to swap a bios setting from win7-8 to win 10. Check in bios on boot to see if you can see this. I've got a giga-brix little sq pc that was stuck in this circle that I couldn't catch the bios mid upgrade to swap it to win 10.
