Battery that I was using on this RX4 has given up, trickle charging is not working, had got up to 11.89 V now dropped to 8.80 V so a couple of cells must be knackered. It is 9 years old though and done well on the Scenic 1.6 since I had it.

RIP :(

Picolax, used before a colonoscopy or bowel surgery, otherwise known as liquid dynamite!!!!

Know it well. then only allowed clear fluids, tea, black coffee, consomme, Bovril, jelly as long as it is not red and clear fruit juices, apple, grape etc but not orange or other fibrous juices.

Best of luck!!! :)

me and the wife are on 3rd day and still got fever around 38-40 celsius little one is a little better today, was not hit by flu for many years
I wish i would get some fresh air ! The norms of PM values are 100 percent worse than max accepted values. Sometimes when it goes a little down i open the windows 10 minutes then close and open the air cleaner - bought a Philips for 250 bucks last year

No...no damage, no sign of locks being damaged or anything.
We're wondering if she actually locked it.... may have not closed boot or door properly so system didn't lock?
Bugbear is the alarm isn't working now.
Trying to work out why?
Seems to be arming but open a door and it don't sound off.

Microsoft just sent me an alert telling me one of my hardrives is failing
Think it might have been from driving off with my laptop on top of the car and watching it hit the road behind me

Ouch!!!

SSD is the way forward if you can afford it NMP.

This is a good option, 16 Gb Nand flash 500 GB total HDD space for £28.75, a real bargain.


Even better with 32 GB Nand flash, they stopped making these, looks like it is either very old stock or they are making them again, tempted to get another myself.


Boots up fantastically fast with the 32 GB Nand flash, all the most used files get put in the Nand flash area of the SHDD automatically and boot times reduce with use and your most used apps get put in there too.
Sufficient space to put all the operating system boot files in and then some.

£112.71, 1Tb with the 32 Gb Nand, I have a few of these.

:) :) :)
