Mr Dabbs> When I am at work on the first Wednesday of any month, I book out 12 noon to 12:30 pm on my agenda as "unavailable." Besides, it's bloody lunchtime, n’est-ce pas?
Blocking lunchtime in Outlook worked for about 3 month. Until the, "Mutter, mutter, bloody French long lunches, mutter mutter" attitude took over and people started ignoring them.
The external temp sensor (AKA a 2p thermistor) mounted in the wingmirror of many cars is now plumbed into the ECU.
Failure of the "sensor" on some models now puts the car into limp mode.
Great design work there.
On some recent Jeep models engine limp-mode = 2WD only. Even better thinking there!
Pretty harsh. In France, in red fire-risk zones, you have to clear 50m around your house.
Even possibly having to pay for clearing parts that may not be your property.
With a €100/day charge for each day on non-compliance,
And €15000 and a year in jail if a fire starts on, or propagates over your uncleared land,
