  1. That looks dodgy as hell, there's actually no property where the pin is on the map either.
  2. Well the director of operations for the national grid has a slightly different view on the grids capacity to cope with EV demand. The main worry for the national grid is moving toward electric home heating as this will mean a massive increase in demand.
  3. Replacing the leaking power steering fluid sensor, took all of 5 minutes. Replacing the rusted away earthing connection for the rear light clusters, all the lights were flashing away like a disco when I pressed the brake pedal . Do all the servicing of my lawnmowers and power tools myself, replaced the drive shaft in my Stihl hedge cutter recently which saved me a few pounds.

Made a big difference (much bigger than I'd expected).
  5. She's not headlining, it's the legends spot (Kylie this year I think?), and they've sold out in a couple of hours as usual without any lineup announcement. Since then there's only 7 acts confirmed so far so pretty hard to judge based on that.
  6. Pretty sure our current system of FPP rather than proportional representation means the concept of majority rule is breached every election.

    Add in the fact very few younger people have any sort of assured tenancy and the idea of having to move and set up your system in a different sized space every 6 months to a year becomes very unattractive.
  8. Somebody's clearly never heard of venture capital.
