I’ve owned my Mazda 3 for just under 2 years now. On cold, damp days I often find that a number of warning lights come on, related to lane guidance (Lane Departure Warning System – LDWS), automatic full-beam (High Beam Control System – HBC) and automatic braking (Smart City Brake Support – SCBS). After a […]
We have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language. Oscar Wilde, The Canterville Ghost Much is said about the difference between the British and US language, often concentrating on differences of spelling or pronunciation. However, what about all those words which we have different terms for?
With over 137,000 views, my video of the music from the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become, for me, a soaraway success (well, compared to my other videos which normally consist of people on trampolines or moving Lego contraptions). So, I thought I’d talk about how I create the video and what the future holds for […]

I’ve been using svnX for years now for managing my WordPress plugins with the svn repositories that WordPress.org provide. It’s pretty old-school and I keep intending to move to Versions but, yeah, time always seems to be against me. However, I’ve now started getting the following errors against all my repos… svn: E230001: Server SSL […]
The ODB diagnostic port is used by garages and dealerships to connect your car to their computer systems, checking for any reported errors as well as check various engine values. Just to check and clear an error message can cost £30+, yet ODB readers can be bought for not much more than £10 and phone apps […]
If you have a number of Lego Minifigs then displaying them is something you may consider. However, official products can be expensive, and will often not hold many. So, I set out creating my own on a relatively shoe-string budget. How does £20 for displaying 66 figures sound?
