i use my trusty foot pump once per week just to check the tyres, hardly ever need pumping.

I wait till the low tyre pressure warning comes up on the car dashboard.
The battery charger thingy then pumps the tyr(s).

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Maybe it's a good idea that Microsoft are now releasing a newer version of Windows as it seems the version used by DVLA has developed Dementia

After recently PX'ing my car for a newer one, I subsequently received a cheque from DVLA for the tax refund owed.

A week later I received another letter from DVLA informing me that their records have now been updated and I am no longer the registered keeper of the vehicle I no longer own.

Today I receive a letter from DVLA informing me that the car tax is due on the vehicle I no longer own or are the registered keeper of.

Computers, running the world in a better and more efficient way

It is not the computer it is the program written to deal with the data and or the database. Written by humans and therefore open to error

Yes Yes we know all that, so you're suggesting that the computers are fine yet the humans working at DVLA are useless and incompetent?

One hopes those (govt. employees) dealing with Covid or Climate change have a better grasp of programming and/or dealing with data then

Having worked there for a while a few years back I can confirm that assessment is correct. I started on the Monday and by the Thursday I'd realised what an awful place to work it was, and begged my old employer to take me back. 6 weeks later I was back at my old desk

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Fitting a new kitchen at my sister-in-law's, if it can go wrong it is doing! Today's nightmare, doing the sink unit and turned the water off so I could get rid of all the old nasty plumbing. One thing led to another and it was getting late so decided to do a temporary job to get the cold water running for toilet, electric shower etc and the stopcock packs in - will turn no problem but no water. She's got plenty of bottled water to see her through to tomorrow but only one flush of the toilet . Will nip to Go Outdoors in the morning to get some water carriers and hope the plumber can come tomorrow (and the isolator in the road works ok).

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

MSM running stories and pictures of (some) shortages in the supermarkets. Nothing like that stupidity to start the panic buying again.
