  1. Past hour
  2. Very early on in this, @ mid/late April my wife was re-registered by the Health Professional Council (HPC) after 2 1/2 years retired, for free (normally costs a few hundred pounds), so yeah not uncommon.
  3. @gangzoom our local A&E is asking all existing and retired Band 8 staff to come back in and carry out Band 3 duties. I suspect that’s not a rare occurrence, which shows how bad it’s got. Also, excellent post mate.
  4. DE and DE rev-up exhausts are the same, the HR is slightly different.
  5. Thanks GZ. And again owe you a beer at some point! I hear the same messages from my uni mates, it’s quite scary but as I said quite humbling that they show little anger towards those morons that think “it’s a scam” or those that are taking unnecessary risks and adding to the problem.
  6. This virus is here to stay - become endemic, the vaccine isn't going to render it harmless like small pox or even hepatitis B. The mutation rate will mean it will almost certainly mutate enough to render the current vaccine antigen targets useless, its not a IF but when. However having antibodies of any kind to this virus is better than none, and having the vaccine is safest way to do this bar contracting the disease. Am not going to comment on how hospitals are now thinking about managing resources, as thats far far above my payscale and frankly I rather not get involved- but 'stretched' is putting it mildly. All clinical staff in hospitals are seeing/treating COVID patients constantly now, I had my first dosage vaccine and would jump at the chance to have the 2nd, infact I would happily have all 3 vaccines currently approved. Make no mistakes on the increased severity and contagion of this new strain versus the old, if you are unlikely enough to need hospitals admission for COVID the mortality rate isn't far off 25-30% - bare in mind in normal times our inpatient mortality rate is below 5%. I've given up trying to plan anything more than 1 week in advance as things change so quickly with this virus. When the mutations appear which bypass the current vaccines, who knows what we will do - closing boarders is a no brainer in my mind, but clearly the implication are huge.
  7. Today
  8. Maybe because majority of people are seeing it for what it is. A cousin of the yearly Flu Virus. Just a more deadly strain due to the symptoms like severe Pneumonia and fever. I work in NHS and there are huge amounts of patients in the largest hospitals receiving treatment for Covid. Areas are off limits and the nurses openly discuss this. We are required to test twice a week im there as a contractor. In the past year I would have come in contact with the virus. Some people are temporarily asymptomatic and others get sick. Some dont get it at all. Its so widespread now most people would have come in contact with it. Seeing as ive barely seen anyone apart from brothers, mom and a mate during tier 2/3 in the summer, should be ok. I took a voluntary test in summer. Was negative. I reckon some people still haven't had any contact with the virus though. I take daily Vitamins C and D and eat fruits and veg for last 12 months no sniffles touchwood. Then you read about overreactive immune systems and its like you cant win. Either way I think the daily infections rate will continue to rise as long as people are mobile. It may start to fall from February to April. You have to limit movement and accelerate vaccinations. The streets are crowded tbh....Most people just dont care. I understand many people are going to work etc. There are still groups hanging around outside. Personally Im still not sure about the vaccine. I might ride this one out. There are constantly new strains the vaccine apparently hasnt accounted for. Just working to reduce symptoms of older strains. Danish, South African, Brazilian strains more deadly not more deadly which is it. In March lockdown is supposed to be lifted but depending on numbers. I can see another strain extending lockdown. Instead of closing airports like New Zealand did, we continued to import new cases until changes at immigration recently requiring negative tests. Took 12 months to act
  9. I've been looking into getting some sports or high flow cats for my 350, the stock ones and the start of the Y-pipe/Flexi pipes are a bit battered with all the stupid shaped speed bumps around my way, and I don't fancy paying for the Cobra sport ones to match the back section of my exhaust as they are around £600 My question is does anyone know if the sports cats that are for the 03-06 DE engines will suit the late 06 onwards engines/exhausts? I can't seem to find any that state they are for the Revup engine, or is the DE and Revup engines the same? Any information would be great!
  10. Yesterday
  11. I'm 5 minutes down the road from Ely, you local to there?
  12. My 2ps worth: everyone I know who works in health are jumping at the chance to take the vaccine, everyone I know who works in the scientific world will jump at the chance to take it, these are people who see what the virus does to people and see people who have been vaccinated with zero to minimal side effects, people with access to scientific papers with the ability to actually understand them unlike the majority of us mere mortals. Also to downplay what the virus can do to people is completely and utterly insensitive, some people see no real issues others are going through hell and putting their families through hell.
  13. Really enjoying watching this come together. What stage are you at at present and when will it be complete?
  14. Truly AMAZING!!! Love the skill and passion
  15. Nice little upgrade, LED indicator bulbs do make a marked difference
  16. It's like a clock you start at 3 o'clock & rewind to 5 two 3 or 5 past 3
  17. I did say with upmost respect Paul
  18. Can you do a mason mitre out of square?
  19. No worries mate, I realised what you had done.
  20. Sorry mate I thought I was messaging our private chat, hence the lack of context and what would appear to be an abrupt comment (mine) . Bearing carrier it is.
  21. The LED indicators I fitted didn't need any resistors, how weird! They literally plugged and played. But you're right they make a hell of a difference when combined with the LED reverse lights
  22. Some call it a flange, others a bearing carrier and others a sleeve
  23. Being a fellow bench joiner/ carpenter&joiner I can really appreciate how long these jigs can take to make. Being old and decrepit the best I can do is a Mason's mytre on a kitchen worktop .will watch this with upmost respect. Keep it coming
  24. This is the bottom half of the hood , makes lots of room for goodies , I plan to buy another Zed later and build a beast with a supercharged LS3 6 or 7 hundred horsepower , full cage , bare minimum , so I want some room for stuff , this new hood design will allow room for twin turbos or LS style air intake . So I had to build this with the blue foam , so happy to done with the blue foam , it's truly a pain in the butt ,having to seal it up with foil and tape . now remember is is the bottom half .....so the top will be a lot different
  25. This is what I need. I’d call it a flange
  26. I decided to upgrade the reversing lights and front and rear indicator bulbs to LEDs to match the rest of the LED lights and overall make the lighting system look more modern. I knew the reversing lights would be very straightforward, however the front and rear indicators would need resistors installing into the circuit to stop the fast 'hyper-flashing'. I didnt know much about exactly how this works and so was a bit sceptical at first, but read up on it and actually it sounds a lot scarier than it is. All you do is 't-tap' into the positive and negative wires of the bulb to each end of the resistor. As the resistors get hot, and i didnt want to make the lights any harder to remove than just the one plug, I didnt install the resistors on the light units themselves but followed the wiring through to the plug on the lights, then followed it to the wiring loom so i could tap in and install the resistor there. Then i found the bits of metal body to mount the resistors where it doesnt matter if they get hot. This is what it looked like once i had 't-tapped' into the both the front and rear wiring: And these are the places i found to put the resistors: The results were fantastic. The lights are so much brighter and look more modern. I havent been out since installing them yet, but i did take comparison videos: And here are the reversing lights (i forgot to take a comparison):
