Re: outages and contacts

You can always PM myself or Stooz. Or email us at those names at lemonfool.co.uk

We still share servers with other sites. We are looking again at dedicated servers to stop this happening.

Re: Airplanes and wind speed disruption

It was a flight from Glasgow and there was no wind disruption despite the winds. Funny you mention Birmingham because my most uncomfortable descent ever was a windy day at Birmingham airport. Rather than wait for a delayed connection to Scotland I hired a car and drove.

Airplanes and wind speed disruption

DAK what wind speeds cause flights to be delayed or cancelled? We flew today and the BBC weather forecast said there would be wind speeds of 43mph at the airport when we departed. It was certainly very blustery and wind socks were horizontal, but there was no impact on flights and there was little m...

Re: Reporting unsuitable ads?

Thanks. By all means give details. I think we can alter what ads appear to some extent, but Stooz looks after that kind of stuff.

Re: Iframe from 3rd party - Can I edit what gets displayed

Can I do something on my web page to remove or obscure the bits I don't want? Calendars are a doddle, I put zabuto on a site I'm working recently and it was very simple. So why not embed the calendar directly and avoid the iframe (which can be a security risk) and the hassle of dealing with 3rd par...

Iframe from 3rd party - Can I edit what gets displayed

I have a website for our holiday cottages which used an iframe to show the calendar from our main booking agent. That meant (a) our website had an up to date calendar, (b) I didn't have to maintain my own calendar and (c) anyone clicking on the calendar went to the agent's website so they got the bo...

Stupidly cheap car hire - how does this work?

We're heading off to Majorca for 10 days and I'm looking at car hire on HolidayAutos. It shows that I can hire a car from a few companies at £28 to £35 for the WHOLE TEN DAYS. How does that work? Are they companies that have a glut of cars available after the main summer holidays and want to get SOM...

Re: Blocking

Then there is the question whether Administrators' posts should be blocked as a potential solution to the above. My response as si...

You can't hide YOUR posts from the eyes of Administrators

Or

You can't hide Administrators' posts from your eyes?

Either way I think the software is probably working as it should but I can check.

Re: Electric trip - check the socket or the iron?

The only thing he could think of was that the socket switch was faults and had arced. Well if there is any kind of inductive load, which your Iron may well be then, depending upon when in the cycle the switch disconnects, it most certainly will arc. That shouldn't cause an over-current though as th...

Re: Electric trip - check the socket or the iron?

The socket was installed less than a year ago as part of a complete bedroom refit (including stud walls being moved) and it was new wiring and new socket. It is still under warranty so electrician coming tomorrow morning to replace and I'll ask him to confirm if it looks like the socket. C Is there...

Re: Electric trip - check the socket or the iron?

The socket is less than a year old but is the one most used for ironing. The same socket had a fan on during the night because of the temperature. Would that have had an impact on its behaviour this morning? I wouldn't imagine so - most fans will be low power and shouldn't normally cause any sort o...

Electric trip - check the socket or the iron?

Mrs C was ironing just now and switched the iron off at the switch on a double socket and there was a significant flash and a bang, which tripped the circuit breaker for the upstairs sockets. We plugged the iron into another socket and the power light went on so it isn't dead. When switched off at t...

Testing statistical significance - Revisiting.
