  1. I've never seen traffic observing the 60, 50, then 40 signs accurately, they just slow down somewhat. Are they all getting booked or what?
  2. You'd think that those same cameras could detect when the distance between you and the artic behind gets down to a couple of feet at 70 mph but I've never heard of one being done for it.
  3. (Taking the general case and not the specific case): The problem is the sphere of impact. If I am in the presence of the spouse of the deceased, I will be sympathetic and concerned to avoid distress to himher. If I am in the room next door I can be a little more blunt about the practicalities of what needs to be done to deal with the situation. If I am in the local pub I can be clear that I had my doubts about the way he drove but I must phrase it gently as there may be friends of the deceased around who take a different view. When I am back home I can express the view forcefully that his driving was so bad that it was amazing that he hadn't taken himself and others out earlier. Its all about the distance between me and the event. If the distance is not relevant then the fact that people are suffering and dying all over the world every second would weigh us down and prevent us talking about anything. The problem is then, what is the sphere of impact where the internet is concerned? When we are having a cozy discussion then it can feel quite close and intimate. When we have a new brusque arrival to a discusion it can feel more market place. It can even feel a different distance for each person in a discussion at the same time, which doesn't happen (so much) in a face-to-face encounter. I suggest that the forum adopts the view that it, the forum, is relatively "distant", unless any forum member indicates that there is a specific known connection which makes it closer. Such a connection would be the known frequent and regular presence of an affected member on the forum. The chance of an accidental chance visit of an affected visitor would not count. This would leave the forum able to discuss most disasters freely. I don't see any sign of any members being intrinsicaly heartless and uncaring.
  4. You can't ask that. Somebody connected might be visiting the forum. (where can I get a tongue-in-cheek smiley?)
  5. I have a 240VAC socket in my bathroom. Looking at the arrangement dispassionately, I judge it to be safe - provided that no gentlemen attempt to piss on the ceiling.

  8. We're all bonkers on here in our different ways, but there is loads of useful stuff, once you get familiar with the way this forum operates. Don't give up! Added wiring pic. Can't give credits as don't have them. Is on this forum somewhere. Maybe in the links already given?
  9. Scroll up to the top of the screen. ok with that? There is a symbol at the top which looks like a male symbol with the arrow head chopped off (ouch). It is a Search symbol representing a magnifying glass. Click on it. A bar will appear with the word "Search". Type in here with words associated with what you're interested in, and hit Enter. A list of posts will appear which should be useful, in your case quite a lot. Spend many happy hours trying to comprehend these. When you are up to speed, post any further questions on here. Simply posting a question on its own works well for anything that has a one-post reply but doesn't work for minefields like the one you are interested in.

  11. 2050: At dusk, one by one, a group of old men make their furtive way to gather in the back of a dingy, derelict, high street store. With a last look outside to check that no uninvited passers-by are about, one of them lifts a concealed trapdoor revealing a collection of jerrycans. The contents of one are poured very carefully into the tank of an engine hiding behind the cans, and, with a nod from all assembled, one man starts the engine. Fitted with an enormous silencer, the men gaze in awe at the beast. Fully 60 seconds goes past before the same man utters "Enough!" and shuts the engine down. The men disperse individually to avoid arousing suspicion, until next time.
  12. Not really. Just trying to say in the gentlest possible way that its a daft idea, without my having any scientific evidence to justify that belief. On the one hand, since its you, I would suggest that you accept that you're doomed. On the other hand, if it were me, I'd be very anxious about my neighbours in the marina collandering my boat, and that's why I don't moor in marinas except as a last resort.
  13. Great idea. Should reduce the corrosion on your mushroom vents.
  14. I got mine from Whalin and I am pleased with the results.
