  1. With all of the means available and at their disposal, it is disconcerting that the main points of the new guidelines were not conveyed in clear and concise way, there should be no need for a 60 page document to get across succinctly the new measures. I'm all for pulling together, particularly in times of national crisis, the message put out by the Prime Minister was clearly not without ambiguity as evidenced by the comments of one the PM's own parliamentary members who should have understood the message but who instead clearly demonstrated his own misinterpretation of part of the PM's pronouncement.
  2. You obviously don't understand levelling if you consider any component within a compartment to be a representation of the level status of the entire compartment.
  3. I am not a reader of The Guardian, it was the first link that Google listed in relation to the topic of current Covid19 restrictions being espoused by Nicola Sturgeon. If what was reported therein was incorrect or misleading then please amend with your supporting link to a reliable source of information. I am more than happy to be informed of facts. If on the other hand you were being facetious then it is hardly the apogee of wit.
  4. Only that you have missed that bessacar425 is again corrupting the facts and promulgating his misinformation, as usual. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/10/nicola-sturgeon-leads-criticism-of-uks-new-stay-alert-coronavirus-lockdown-advice
  5. When restrictions are eased, a lot of those patriots who have made bookings and are then allowed to travel will throw patriotism and the well being of others out of the window because they will not get a full refund of the money they paid out. "I paid for it so may as well use it" will be one of the reasons given.
  6. Similar iniatves have existed in the past, e.g. discounts on bicycles through employer\government schemes and yes it resulted in increased bicycle sales. The reality was that these schemes were predominantly taken up by leisure cyclists, there was no significant reduction in people using their cars or avoiding public transport. Walking and cycling to work is not going to become the new norm for many people, it is a nonsense of an idea, a waste of money and it will not achieve much if anything at all. Roads here abound with cycle lanes and often to the detriment of traffic flow, the cycle lanes are virtually unused apart from the few and infrequent leisure cyclists, I do wish our politicians would get real and stop coming up with pie-in-the-sky bampot ideas like this. I would sometimes take a motorcycle to work as it was more economical on fuel, would I do that in the winter or during the inclement weather months ?............... no chance.
  7. I contacted CTEK on one occasion because of my concern that the charger unit was much hotter than usual, the reply was that a severely depleted battery could be be taking a lot of current hence the higher than normal temperature of the unit, and that I should allow plenty of ventilation around the charger, just as matelodave has mentioned. I did as was advised but checked frequently for signs of trouble, Ctek were it seems correct, the charger returned to what I considered 'normal' operating temperatures after a time, I have used the charger umpteen times since and it has performed without any cause for concern. I cannot say that the Auto XS charger is safe or otherwise, can you email their helpline for advice?
  8. Much appreciated 👍.
  9. Where can the elements be purchased from Brecon, are there after market suppliers with good products.
  10. If you PM me your address I will post you an LED, just make sure you solder it on the right way round, it is gratis.
  11. I use on-line prescription ordering, I leave a note for the GP Practice to forward the prescription to my local pharmacy. I have requested that our local pharmacy delivers all precriptions to our house, and most often I receive the prescription a day or two after placing the order, there are no deliveries made on a Sunday. It is an excellent and reliable service and is free of charge, as are the prescriptions.
  12. The way I read Stevan's reply was that he was not suggesting that the LED was affecting the operation of the ATC, just that the LED might have failed. Why do you believe that the Alko ATC is not doing an operation test?
  13. How is that done, I don't want to do it but I cannnot see where it is in 'my profile' or other settings. Thanks.
  14. 🤡👺🐉👻 I tried a method, but I am sure there must be a quicker and better way of doing it Silversurf. Sorry about the thread drift folks 🤥. Thanks Johnaldo, how do you do it on a PC (Win10) or on Android?
  15. Siversurf, where did you get and how did you insert the emoticons you just used? Cheers.
