  1. Things I Don't Like

    I don't like that it's hot and sunny outside, ideal weather for doing my rear axle maintenance on the Mk2 However, I've got a report to compile, write and edit for a client with a deadline of 3pm, to get to the pitch for 4:30pm. The forecast for here tonight when I'm free, is rain, lots of it That's something to try from underneath, in theory I can miss all the obstacles Parts wise it cost me about £170 to do a timing belt (with water pump) major service last week. Gates belts and Ford OE/motorcraft everything else.

  3. I finally worked out how to do it, after an extensive Google You have to set up a personal account first, use that as the admin account, and from there create your other profiles. You also don't appear to be able to log in to her account directly but have log in as admin and then navigate to it. Which is a bit clumsy if you're a business with multiple brands. Pipper now has a live Twitter ( @itsPipper) and a Facebook account (@PippertheSpringer) but I've yet to add content. Hopefully Instagram and Google won't be as awkward to set up. Although I suspect setting up her website, blog and video channel will be quite involved. Facebook have these categories for the non-individual accounts, none of which Pipper really fits, for Facebook purposes Pipper is currently a "Public Figure"
  4. Things I Don't Like

    Like last week it was an alternator top mount: I have another tonight but far more inaccessible that one I could at least get at the other end, tonight's rounded off bolt has a welded on nut that more inaccessible than itself The top offside rear shock absorber bolt, who is inconveniently obscured from view by the sub chassis and coil spring mount and at the rear, the spare wheel well blocks direct access to it. All socketry has to go via a UJ, rendering any impact tool more or less ineffective I have broken 2 UJs so far trying to not to let that way, whilst I tried. Admittedly they weren't impact rated UJs just regular ones There too much flexibilty when you add a breaker bar, to the already long multi-extensions (to get around the fuel pipes that also in the way) with the UJ on the end before the socket. My regular wrenches aren't long enough to get the torque. It's now soaking in GT85: PlusGas would be better but I don't know where you can get it from locally (and in the evening too). tomorrow I shall try heating the nut end with Mapp gas torch whilst freezing the bolt with plumbers arctic spray. Yep that's the one
  5. Things I Do Like

    I do like how easy it was to set up a Twitter account for Pipper. I also like that although they've come from various suppliers by different couriers, all the parts I ordered for the rear axle, all turned up today, between midday and 3pm

  7. It is not at all clear how you set up a Facebook account for something other than an individual. In preparation for a massive fundraising campaign I (along with Pipper) am doing next year for the rescue that Pipper came from and I now volunteer for. We are going to try and raise £100K+ for them over the course of the year, through numerous events. As part of the campaign Pipper will be a sort of brand ambassador and consequently needs a presence on all the main social media platforms along with her own website and blog Setting up Twitter was relatively easy, you can be anything you want on Twitter. Facebook is not! At the bottom of the "Sign Up" page there's a link for "Create a Page for celebrity, band or business" which Facebook's help section tells you to use if you are anything other than an individual. However, once you follow it and select, up pops a log in window "Sign in to your account to proceed" How can you possibly log into an account you haven't created yet!!!? There are clearly "things" on Facebook including animals who are not individuals, so there must be a way to do it?

  13. Things I Don't Like

    You're probably right with that Phil. The road that links the relief road with the A349 floods every time there is a smattering of rain. I drive that road at least 4 times a day, flooded or not!
