    So there's an opening for you to join and then become the rep. You could get others to join in too then maybe you'd get some clout. no need to tell em until you've doned it tho.;)

    I know it's sounds like I'm just being negative but that's just how they are.
    Will find a better job eventually, noted just not the right time for me

    Such a shame. I worked for a bloke once who got rid off 2 union reps, one for each of the main unions in the place. Cunt.
    :mad::mad::mad::mad:
    Best of luck finding another job.;)

    Had my noo karpet fitted today. Transforms the lounge and makes the place look "finished" after 6 years of renovations and rearrangements. No sooner had the fitters left and SWMBO winged at me for still having my outdoor boots on :rolleyes:. Guess I'll be getting slippers for krimbo.

    .....i'm feckin about with plumberin again.:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
    Want to reuse the nice, deep, but single basin, kitchen sink I took out by putting it in the utility. But it's going to be tight doing the pipework, so I want to fit flexi-tails instead of reuse the ones I already have on the monobloc tap, which is a nice one too.
    So took them off, they have male ends with, as far as I can tell, 14mm ends with thread size of 1.5. But they are a bit weird cos they have a kind of shoulder on them at the end of the thread, followed by an O-ring that sits in a groove. Of course they sit dead tight together which accounts for the 4 sided spannery bit, so you can do them up.
    I'll put a coupla pics up.
    sink connector1.JPG sink connector2.JPG

    I'm afeared they are a special fitting and I will end up having to cut them down and fit a push-fit flexi to that. but the bastids have about 60mm of roughly 12mm (NOT 1/2") before it flares out to 15mm. So whatever I do doing this it'll extend everything further downwards than I want.

    GGGGRRRRRRR!!!!!:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
    and before anyone asks, they came with the feckin tap. Which is why I don't know the dimensions.
    Think I'll give up for the day.:(:(:(

    I am SOOOO chuffed.
    The adaptor bought from Halfords has been running the cool box what I mended sometime back, all afternoon.
    Nothing in the box at all except an empty chinese takeaway box with two thermomenters on it.
    It dropped right down from room temp (20 degs C) to 7 or 6 degs. So fridge temp.
    So throwing away the pcb and wiring it direct to the fans and the Peltier was all it took. and it can't hurt the car's batt as the socket it connects to is off when the key is out, or off.
    RESULT!!!!!!!!:):):):):):):):)
    (Maybe not as good as it could have been when new but still very happy with it. )

    If a Solar flare really did strike the earth and toast all the electronics for six months or so, would Elon musk still be worth all that money or would he be a skint bastid for a while ...

    I am so pleased. ;)
    Strangely, after all the concern that I've had over the past few weeks I've decided to pass on the pizzas for now. :eek:
