  1. Bye Bye Fazda

    Returned from my month in the Cape to find that my Fazda had not enjoyed her stay in my humid salty aired garage.

    She started alright, and actually went into reverse in order to get out of the garage, but then decided to start showing her ire at my sudden disappearance.

    The wipers, suddenly refused to park at the bottom of the screen as they found that the top suited them better, the rust that I thought that I had fixed on the bonnet was back with a vengeance, and worst ...
  2. Problems with Nokia 5800XM Memory Card - Corruption

    I have had a corrupt memory card on 5 occasions now.

    I am trying to find out what the cause could be so i have run the card through 2 different hardware tests and i cannot find a hardware issue at all.

    Next step is to reformat and individually install applications to see if it is an application that is corrupting the memory card.

  4. The Struggle

    Over the past three weeks several people I work with have been hospitalized with one or other aliment. I have been a regular visitor to two of them specifically and try to just "be there" so that I may contribute a little to them getting/feeling better. It has been difficult in being a regular visitor. I am not really close with them and have little "connection" with them, so once the obvious is said there is little else to say.

    One of the patients I visit ...
  5. Day/Night switch anyone?

    I have a situation at work where the day/night switches have been stolen from certain spotlights. Now these things were installed to save electricity, time and the schlep of having to switch the spotlights on and off. Obviously they are in an area where the lights are required to prevent theft and malicious damage.
