    Incorrect Forum Spelling - SOLVED!

    I trained service engineers in Finland and my local host was helping with translations. The document I created told the customer the reason for the failure was takuu, translating to warranty claim. My host said no, that’s wrong, it should be sotkea. Me, the ever helpful, gullible Brit, makes the change in the database. For two weeks 20 odd service engineers printed reports for their customers saying, reason for the work was f**k up instead of warranty. The engineers thought it was really funny, I was in a taxi to the airport.

    Deano's Classic SE Build

    Thanks for the advice, I completely agree, I looked at the small blue-tooth units but I had the Caliber already which made it free and it's a good amp. I'll probably refine further but in the end it's an open top car with noisy exhaust. I do like the speed controlled volume adjustment, I'll give it a go.

    You know the sound you get in a really good concert hall? It’s not like that.

    Deano's Classic SE Build

    Not quite to HiFi standards but a bit of an experiment. My heater is not a WF item and takes up less space. The Amp is an old unit from my son-in-law who fitted it to his Mini 20 years ago. Sound source is just playlists or internet radio from my mobile phone using the phone for volume control. I do have an amp on/off switch on the dash.

    Happy Birthday Alan France

    Thanks, just been out for a birthday blast, bit cold. Had a nice present in the form of an OMP Trecento wheel.

    Attorney specialised (or with knowledge) about discrimination for nationality

    Pleased you’re sorted Maurici. It’s probably been more c*ck up than conspiracy, I would expect the term “National ID” was intended to prove identity, rather than indicate a country of origin. EE was originally a joint German/French company until taken over by BT, so I would not expect them to be institutionally too dodgy. There is a reason why mobile phone companies get more complaints than most other companies, and it’s usually incompetence. The idiots that give you grief are just that, idiots, and they are a very, very tiny minority.

    Alcohol free.

    What’s Brexit, I’ve seen nothing in the press or on TV about it?

    Another new build diary. FW

    I had a really enjoyable year on mine with only a few frustrations. You have a lot of holes to drill, the big bits are the most fun.

    Greek red wine, local and drinkable. Such a thing?

    Are you sure that’s wasn’t the barmaid?

    Making Life Easier With Servicing and Repairs

    I used one on my old Corvette. Auto gearbox checks were very unusual, engine had to be running, no dipstick and the gearbox was rear mounted: Jack up the car so that you can work underneath Start the car then wait for the gearbox oil temperature to reach 120F With footbrake on, move the selector slowly between all gears twice Leave the engine running so the gearbox pump can maintain fluid levels Climb underneath with big gloves Remove the filler plug and top up to the level Always remember if the engine stalls the gearbox pump stops and most of the hot oil flows out on top of you

    Thank you for adding me.

    Welcome Jürgen. Nice part of the country. That was my alternative route home when working in Speyer. Looks like your headlamps will light up the road well.
