#496942 Shaker Radio Reprogramming

Posted by Turvey on 20 June 2015 - 08:54 PM

I don't know anything about reprogramming the radio but as a former owner of a Japanese import Pajero I do know that you can buy a radio band expander   https://en.wikipedia...i/Band_expander  


I didn't have to install one but a lot of folks over on www.pocuk.co.uk have done  ;)


Something like this  http://www.ebay.co.u...ff14=108&ff19=0  

#496536 Chris Evans.... Really?

Posted by Turvey on 18 June 2015 - 08:50 PM

When he first became famous Don't Forget Your Toothbrush, TFI Friday etc I really liked him, then he started going up his own a*** and I went off him! Then he started at Radio 2 and I thought he had grown up and I started to like him again. Recently though I think he's started the journey up his own 'arris again and I'm starting to go off him........again!


This morning Breakfast Show should have been re-named as 'A Public Information Film About Top Gear' 


Whether he's going to be any good for TG remains to be seen BUT TG will NOT be the same as it was before. 


Also I'm pretty sure JC, JM and RH will do something in the future to rival TG  ;)


Just my tuppence worth.

I know, how selfish of me!!! :)

#492911 Any Sparkies On Here? Outside Pir Question

Posted by Turvey on 05 June 2015 - 08:20 PM

I much preferred Mark's first suggestion of just disconnecting the 'switch wire'. Even I would have managed to do that safely   :) 


Anyway, spoke to the sparky doing the house next door, same company but different guy, and showed him the pics and he reckons it won't be a major job to sort if we get a light we like  ;)


Cheers for all the info even though 90% of it went right over my head. Shows what a good forum this is  B)

#484897 Parking Charge Petition

Yes sorry. I should have said it better. 


Seeing people in lifted pickups climbing in and out whilst parked in a disabled space boils my p***!!! 

#484094 Serious Question For Logical And Clever People

Posted by Turvey on 09 May 2015 - 06:59 AM

You say you used to work for that company and that you are leaving the industry they are connected too. You've got nothing to lose but anyone staying in one of those places has the chance to lose something really special ie a life! 


It's a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned. The advice given in the post above by Jeremyc seems to be spot on. But maybe start by deleting this thread  ;)


Good luck in what you choose to do.

No point, they can indicate and still stuff it up. I find people are very good at indicating left to go straight on, because they think they need to indicate at least one junction before.

They do the exact opposite up here! Indicate right to go straight ahead! ie 2nd exit on a 4 way roundabout. Does my head in especially when I've had to bring 30 odd tons of truck to a complete halt to allow the 'indicating right' vehicle to cross in front only for it to indicate left at the last minute and exit from the junction I'm sitting at!!!!!  :censored:
