      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  2. Keeping Boxes for 12 months cover?

    I keep motherboard and video card boxes for that: everything else gets shredded as a compost ingredient. Although bigger boxes can also be used to line the recycling wheelie bin: keeping the bin interior pristine. The boxes Pipper's chicken carcases come in are an exact fit for the wheelie bin like bespoke liners
  3. Things I Don't Like

    I don't like Twitter posting embedded videos "as Pipper" on her Twitter account. Whilst they are quite funny videos, they're not related to Pipper's content. When you're running a Twitter account as a marketing tool, for a future animal charity fundraising campaign, 2 minutes of people lighting their body gas emissions, or skateboarders being chased by angry members of the public aren't relevant. I can't exactly find what I need to do stop them doing it. I thought was related to 3rd parties accessing the app, if you revoke 3rd party permissions, the app doesn't work. Twitter is a lot easier to use with the app than with a PC/laptop Turning the app off and only posting from one of PCs, doesn't make any difference. So, it can't be the app, anyway Enabling various privacy settings, again, doesn't stop it. When you look at the "media" tab on Pipper's profile, the embedded videos aren't there, just the photos I've uploaded of Pipper. They aren't deletable as they aren't officially my media: but they do seem to expire after about 8-12 hours. However, I would like them not to have appeared in the first place.

    I've seen iphone boxes go for as much £20, which is quite remarkable for what is a small cardboard box!

  6. Things I Don't Like

    Molly appears to have gone hunting whilst Pipper and I were out on her morning stroll I've just found a mouse head and some intestines in the airing cupboard a front leg in the bathroom, and the tail end on the 3rd stair down. I am however, missing a torso and the other 3 legs, I wonder where Molly has abandoned them??
  7. Things I Don't Like

    Tonight's failed attempt, videoing Pipper reclining on her back, on my lap, whilst she ate pigs ear she'd got balanced on her chest. Cuddling her with my right arm whilst trying to keep the phone steady and in focus with my left. Result, 2 minutes of a blurry moving Pipper, but including such highlights as 10 seconds of a wet nose , 30 seconds of her rear left paw and 15 seconds of her forehead!
  8. Things I Do Like

    I do like have a couple of hours free this afternoon, and popping over to the rescue to walk and entertain Izzy the collie x https://www.margaretgreenanimalrescue.org.uk/42706 She's going to her forever home tomorrow. Pipper didn't seem to mind that I came back with another woman's scent all over me It's also my birthday today, so I took a load of cakes for all the animal rescue staff and sausages for all the dogs. Pipper now has 34 followers on her Twitter and is following most of the police dog units (who also tweet)
  9. Things I Don't Like

    Whilst I shouldn't be that surprised, I don't like that my phone camera can't film in darkness, even when illuminating the subject (Pipper doing her nightly zoomies) with a 30w LED spot light. I wanted a 20-30 second video of her, to upload to her social media. Apart from her zipping past me up the drive (2 seconds), I've shot 3 minutes of darkness with occasional white flash of spaniel as she zooms by me. For that matter, this morning I tried videoing Pipper's morning zoomies. Which was perfect apart, from the fact she combined her morning zoomies with the first 2 ablutions of the day

  12. Things I Do Like

    I do like fitting in an afternoon of volunteering at rescue. I took along my industrial steam cleaner and cleaned some equipment they'd mentioned they were struggling to do by hand. Pipper it seems is not the only springer spaniel on Twitter, she's gathering quite few springer followers, some of whom are service dogs like Clive's
