Re: You vill parle Amrecianish Da!
I have rejected software tools before for insisting on US date formats.
Also I INSIST on being able to wrapper stuff to correct spellings.

Give them more to worry about.
Latest I started was that the Star Link satellites are spreading Covid 19 and that a plastic bag over their head cable tied to keep it safe will protect them.
Kichen foil hat for WiFi.
I have not yet thought of a protection against 5G.
Oh I am going to fine them and aid the French Cooking Ware industry.
For protection against 5G wear a Le Creuset pot on your head.
£2.50 small £3.50 big (I think anyway £1 different)
Someone said only 4 inch bigger, not worth it
I saw twice the area well worth it.
(10/2)**2 * Pi = 78
(14/2)**2 * Pi = 154
14 inch pizza is twice the size of 10 inch pizza
Not even the staff realised.
I miss mine 2 wheels.
Had a drive chain, o ring fitted to extend life.
6 speed sequential gear change.
Only pedals were rear brake and gearchange.
Hada 16v petrol engine for propulsion.
And I ran racing tyres, which is what happens when a racing series demands road tyres. Bit pricy but wore well and gripped well,
My current car money saving consists of.
1) Cheap sunroofs which leak.
2) Gearbox with recommended maximum torque lower than engine maximum torque.
3) Chassis with sub standard steel.
1) Been repaired, I think they need resealing again.
2) There are speciaists in upgrading them, currently running on the borderline after a remap. The engine is VERY remappable.
3) Aftermarket does a good trade.
The documentation includes the original sales invoice. It was £35k in 2003.
You were lucky mine cost me £350 and the manufacturers didn't care. Also it was 8K which killed it. I know it is less than 10 years ago as I already had my Humax HDR.
Anyway I stripped out the HDD and parked on it and sent a copy to Pace.
They know I have blacklisted their goods for life.
I can list companies I have had good service from, Pace ain't one.
What was worst was that it was hardware compatible with 8K but software wasn't after a few phone calls I got through to someone high up who admitted they had let go the programmers and abandoned the product completely.
My simple advice now for PVRs is this.
Does it have HUMAX written on it?
Humax specialise in TV receivers for the consumer.
And many early DVB-T devices and also some early Freeview only devices would not work after switchover.
A pox on you Pace for your complete lack of support of your Freeview kit. The loan dodgybox had fried itself years before and the first generation TV was already with a new owner after a new TV (I think that may have been fixable but I sold it at 10 years old before switchover). But I lost 2 DVB-T devices due to no support from Pace.
I AM NOT DEAF! I AM HEARING IMPAIRED! Do not shout at me!
I can hear clear sounds fine, but tinnitus is an ever present annoyance.
Imagine having a constant 16kHz tone going off, and a really low top end of 12kHz (I remember 18kHz when I was younger).
At the moment the tinnitus is as loud as the TV.
MP3 artifacts are horrid.
So my brain is already working harder to hear.
I have driven two of those brands and been in a 3rd.
I banged my head on the roof of one of them despite being short. 4WD hatch with V6, as passenger.
I got my feet tangled driving another on an experience day. Mid engined thing.
The other was quick but I have owned quicker bikes, but I reckon I could have lapped quicker in an own car simply because I knew it. Another mid engined thing with a V10. But I fitted in it!
Basically I do not fit in Italian cars unless made by a tractor company.
CD Changer, steering wheel controls, set up for car model, amp, special speakers, built in satnav.
Comes up with car brand on screen, it works, and I am supposed the rip the WHOLE lot out and replace with something else?
We do not al regularly replace cars, I have had 2 in over 14 years. Buy what you really want and look after it than a random box on wheels.
Well we have had it with RM the amount of stuff lost recently beggars belief. (Not late but actually lost).
As an example a largish box full of lamps gone, just vanished.
Disappeared from their system, originally card through the door with no knock, organised redelivery, no delivery, 2 weeks later call them no record.
Need to insist on using a reputable carrier I suppose.
Popping down later to pick up another cocked up delivery rather than risk losing yet another item.
I do not mind slower and late delivery at all, but losing it WTF.
Quite often techie people are like this too.
Even programmers, including me a bit.
You get so used to telling computers what to do that if the vendor of the computer completely changes the way it works* you are out on a limb asking any available teenagers why it don't work.
* Yes usual suspect going from a nice clear OS to a glorified phone UI.
Oh and how much goes it cost to taser a Firefox descision maker. You know the Australis group, the remove the easy UI change group, them lot. They could raise a klot of money with this.
Telephone, I just hand it to a kid to sort, life is too short to have to learn stuff for a short time before it changes again.
