Yesterday at 01:00 PM EPB for VW/AUDI AND MERC - Turnips Dad. by turnip

Had to purchase a electric park brake tool for a job, probably a one off but who knows. Its the Autel est201 which deactivates the electronic handbrake and resets the system when work is complete. If anyone needs to loan the tool just pm me and we can sort it, or if you want to buy it I am asking
£50.

Works well and is a doddle to use. I am considering getting the Ross-Tech VCDS and this system has the capability of the tool above so it seems it may be surplus to requirements!

Yesterday at 09:41 AM Vyner Rd. South bridge by chriskay

Had a visit yesterday showing my son some of my childhood haunts, one of which was the Thermopylae Pass. This is crossed by a bridge at Vyner Rd. South. I'd like to know how & when this bridge was damaged. As you can see in the picture, the original masonry wall (just visible at the left of the pic.) was re-built using brick with a thin artificial stone facing, which is falling off.
Is this possibly wartime damage from a wayward bomb?

P.S. we also saw the Viking boat being rowed on the West Float but I carelessly deleted the pic. I took.

27th Jul 2014 10:48am Sky cables by venice

Weve got a Sky HD cable into one part of the property . We want to watch the TV exclusively in another room which has a single cable. If we ask Sky to change this single cable to HD (but leave the original HD cable for possible future use if plans change) firstly has anyone any idea how much Sky charge seeing as how it wont be part of a new installation package, and secondly - if you DID have two or three TV's (all plugged into phone line) I know youd be paying multi-room on top of one HD charge, but is that it, or would Sky charge an HD monthly charge for each TV you had plugged in on an HD cable ? Come to that , is multiroom an extra monthly charge for EACH extra tv as well or is it just the one monthly charge BECAUSE you have multiple tv's? Sorry if thats a bit garbled , but hopefully it will make enough sense to anyone likely to know the answer.

25th Jul 2014 5:24pm Decorating Box Wallasey-worried as contains knives by KathrynO89

Bit of a long shot here.....
. We have had stolen or misplaced/lost a plastic decorating box yesterday either at the top of Grove Road or Dean Avenue in Wallasey. It's clear with a blue lid on it. It contains some sentimental items however we're more concerned that it contains stanley knives and a flick knife. Don't want it to get into the wrong hands. We're hoping a neighbour in Dean Avenue may have picked it up. Hope someone can help or maybe spread the word if they know anyone in the areas. Thank you!

24th Jul 2014 1:36pm Bromborough Toll Hut Site? by billy_anorak59

I've been looking at the Cheshire Image Bank site ( Image Bank ), and found a picture depicting the 'Toll Hut Site' in Bromborough. I grew up in Bromborough, but for the life of me I just can't place where the picture is taken. I't must be somewhere near the present day A41 (obviously prior to the by-pass) I guess, but know not where. Any help at all please?

The picture can be found direct at: Clicky...

23rd Jul 2014 6:17pm What was a tumbler closet? by yoller

I've been looking at some information on the old 'court' style housing in Birkenhead around the middle to late 19th century. They were mostly overcrowded, insanitary slums which had shared outside privies. Among the various privies listed for some properties are ash pits, water closets and tumbler closets. Does anyone know what a tumbler closet was?

This is my friends dog rescue.

Myself and another friend help her out with firewood - found trees and donated pallets and the like. If anyone knows of any in the wallasey area would you please either let me know here or on her facebook page?

Also, we can move some of it ourselves but if anyone has a large car or van access, that would be incredible helpful.

Thank you for reading smile

22nd Jul 2014 6:34pm Online Piracy Is No Longer Illegal in the UK by eddtheduck

The British government has finally decriminalized online video game, music and movie piracy, a move that goes against other anti-piracy efforts within the UK.

According to the decision, starting in 2015, file sharers that keep downloading content from the Internet will be sent up to four letters of warning, explaining that their actions are, in fact, illegal. However, if the notes go ignored, nothing will happen.

The Creative Content UK is a result of a collaboration between British Internet providers, politicians and the movie and music industries. While the big providers such as BT, Virgin, Sky, and TalkTalk have already signed the agreement, but all the rest are expected to join in too.

The government pledged £3.5 million ($5.98 million/ €4.43 million) for the funding of the education awareness part of the campaign.

Basically, Creative Content UK is comprised of two components. One of them is the alert system and the letters sent to subscribers, as listed above, while the second is an awareness campaign led by content creators. The entire purpose of it all is to fight online copyright infringement through education.

The reasoning is that encouraging consumers and informing them about the copyright issues will help shape the future generation of Internet users.

“The Creative Sector is a key driver of the UK economy contributing £8m to the UK economy every hour and underpinning over 1.5m jobs. Copyright is the foundation on which the Creative industries stand and we must ensure it remains strong and continues to support the growth of the sector. The alert programme shows industry working together to develop solutions which support the long-term health of the UK's creative industries. It will play a central role in raising awareness of copyright and pointing people toward legal ways to access content and I welcome this effort,” said Saji Javid, Culture Secretary.

The Creative Content UK was founded by the Motion Picture Association, the British Recorded Music Industry, as well as BT, Sky Broadband, TalkTalk and Virgin Media, the latter being Internet providers. There’s also some backing from organizations across the creative community, including the BBC, Equity, Pact the Premier League, UK Music and more.

“This is just one piece of the overall approach to tackling illegal online infringement and promoting the importance of copyright. This will enable consumers to receive the best possible user experience and sustains the UK’s creative community and economy, incentivising the creation of new movies and other creative content,” said Chris Marcich, president and managing director EMEA of the Motion Picture Association
