Just got rid of the annoying 'avast secure browser' which I did not want on my computer. When uninstalling it, it asked me why. My answer. 'because I use chrome like a normal person'

Figured out why my replacement ignition switch didn't work. One of the plugs was pinned out in completely the wrong order. 10 minutes and a small screw driver later and we are sorted.

Just what I need. I buy a replacement part for my car after its caused a series of breakdowns and the brand new replacement I get sent has even more faults.

    Who are you getting your parts from?

    A seller off eBay. I'm not going to name them at the minute as I will give them a chance to sort the issue and send a replacement. It could just be a one off. It was for my civic not a mini.

2 minutes from the point of listing an item on ebay to it selling. I've even received payment. Its got to be some kind of record.

    Use removemycar.co.uk. They gave me the best price for mine (as in, paid me for the car, and collected it for free).

    Cheers. I've tried them. Not sure if they will actually take it though as it's just a shell. Backup plan is a reciprocating saw, mate rob and works van for the weekend.

Damm the BBC! They've cancelled robot wars again. Anyone want to buy a wheel chair chassis and a pair of motor controllers. I've suddenly ended up with a spare set.

Decided to read the travel advice about Japan. Nothing surprising, risk of typhoons, earthquakes, Godzilla, etc. Then I Google travel advice for the UK. Holy Hell do we sound like an unsafe place compared to other countries.

I'm trying to teach myself a small amount of Japanese before my trip in may and for someone who's worst GCSE was German it might be a bit of tall order. Incase anyone was wondering my second worse was English.

    I'm not even bothering to try and understand the writing. Just trying to not come across as your typical a*****e British tourist who just points and shouts loudly. I've learnt wa-ta-shi no na-ma-e wa Michael des, so far this evening.

I've just had that happy moment when you figure out how to build a really awkward shape in CAD only to be crushed moments later when you realise you still have s*** loads to do before the looming deadline.

Do some people not realise that tomorrow is Christmas day or something? I've had someone on eBay asking if they can collect parts tomorrow. Err... NO!

    Steve220. True. I work for a company that has offices all over the world. Some of them are still working over the Christmas period. I will however point out that as we live in a predominately Christian country, people should not expect to be able collect car parts on the 25th. I know to avoid contacting our Hong Kong office around the end of January and to avoid contacting the states around the last weekend in November.

    Considering the issues I have with it me too but unfortunately that is where the market is. I am getting a lot more enquiries for parts through gumtree though.
