No idea why they are so big, the whole idea is that the bridge is balanced by the counterweight box. The old bridges had remarkably small electric motors iirc.

What's the Operating System?

If it's Win 10
Try the following...

1. Power off the laptop.
2. Power on the laptop.
3. As soon as you see the rotating loading circle, press and hold the Power Button until the computer shuts off.
4. Repeat this process a few times until you see the "Preparing Automatic Repair" screen.
5. Now you want to let the laptop boot to the "Automatic Repair" screen.
6. Click "Advanced Options" and then select "Troubleshoot".
7. Here you want to select "Refresh your PC", if you do not wish to erase data, or "Reset your PC" to erase all data and restore your system.
8. From here just follow the screen instructions until the recovery is completed.

NOTE: You will need to get into the "Advanced Options" in order to get the "Refresh Option". This choice will keep your data, but any programs installed will be lost.

Do not do a "Reset" as that will wipe all data you have on the laptop.

If your bin is stolen, call the police (non emergency line) and report it as stolen, they'll provide you wit ha crime reference number and then contact the council and report the bin as stolen and provide the crime reference number and your bin will be replaced for free. That's how it works with Liverpool and Sefton Councils, so I assume Wirral Council will be the same.

This is what I call "follow the leader", the driver blindly follows the car in front of him hoping the path is clear, it wasn't, I was there in my cunningly disguised white car. He was lucky there wasn't a pedestrian crossing the road to my left or even a car waiting on the stop line.

I'll put it down to poor wording in the Highway Code, it states "When using a driveway, reverse in and drive out if you can", which implies if it is possible not to reverse out then that is mandatory not to.

However there is also "You MUST NOT reverse your vehicle further than necessary." which is mandatory and law, in most cases it is not "necessary" to reverse out a drive then that would normally apply. Foresight is also applied in law so going forward in would not be an excuse for necessarily reversing out.

People on the 'wrong side of the hill' in Greasby sometimes latch on to the transmitter in Wales, Moel y Parc I think it's called, but I haven't had that problem fortunately. I mean, I like the Welsh language and attempted to learn it once (didn't get very far) but I have no wish to watch Pobol Y Cym - if it's still on! Will check the Digital Spy Forum and explore other options mentioned - thanks for your advice folks.

The UN is at least partly responsible, for some reason (yeah!) the UN has been trying all sorts of tricks to stop the inspection.

The UN asked Russia to make safe passage for UN inspectors which Russia agreed to, OPCW turn up to get the safe passage and do the inspection but of course OPCW are not UN inspectors and Russia had to turn them back.

WHO have also been very misleading on Syria, they do not have teams in that part of Syria and anything they are stating (if you look carefully) states they are using 3rd party information.

It looks like most of the West are playing very silly and dangerous games.

I don't understand the point of the exercises. They used people as guinea pigs , have no idea how certain places were affected and then got concerned in case people contracted live plague bacteria disease ?

Also they are not going to suffer from falling emissivity from the cathode in the gun, or emit X-rays. And they are so big and clumsy.

Years ago, on a whim, I went looking for the Quay in Connah's Quay and a bit further on from the quay found myself in a small industrial estate. One of the businesses was - I think - reclaiming gold from them and they had a pile of monitors and computers about fifteen feet tall! I have no idea if the company is still there, but I imagine the reclamation value of a single monitor must be tiny, so they might be open to an offer to part with one. Go carefully if you visit, though. The heap was guarded by a pair of the most vicious dogs you've ever seen! If it's still there you'll have no difficulty finding it. Just head for the sound of furious barking and snarling!


Yes there are some people out there that reclaim precious metals but the quantity you would get and the purity is not worth the effort given the time it would take, it is a long boring process that requires certain chemicals and a LOT of time, filtration and repeated processes, not something i would be interested in.

I don't prefer CRT as a whole, i prefer to run certain software/games on a CRT, if i set up the two side by side and showed you a comparison you would see the difference, also i only use 4:3 format in CRT not 16:9, i use a specail program much like a test card to get 100% perfect orientation of the picture.

I have a 1983 bang and olufesen beovision 7702 here which runs 240p @ 60hz in full RGB, it has crystal clear picture and the sound quality blows all other tvs away, quite a feat for a tv of that era, i don't use that , thats just a showpiece, i use a 1999 bang and olufsen mx7000 with custom firmware (yes its a CRT), again sound quality is out of this world.

The amp i use is a 1976 pioneer sx-850, it blows away most new things from today, cd player from 1984 marantz electro magnetic floating motor. Most things i use cost thousands of pounds originally, top quality stuff, not rubbish.

Moral of the story, just because its old it doesnt mean its crap, the cd player would cost you £150, amp £600 (if you managed to find one), tv probably £75-£150 depending on firmware, theres a method in my asking for this old outdated electronical stuff, i know what i am doing exactly wink

It may be marked as reserves but it doesn't negate that they are borrowing money at a much greater rate of interest (6%) than they are lending money out at (less than 1%), it is just throwing money away.

I've said it before, if the Council wants to lend out money, bring back the Council loans and mortgages which for many years were charged at 6%, that way the Wirral residents can borrow money from the Council and the money isn't "lost" elsewhere.

Mind you the Council think nothing of giving themselves pay rises of 16% to 36%, the people need to bring them to account. The amount of money Councillors get given for what is a voluntary role is disgusting and attracts professional politicians who could struggle to get paid for the lack of skills elsewhere.

Of course we now have the Council, the Chamber of Commerce and the Business Improvement Districts working hand in pocket with each other now, rate-payers are just an inconvenience.

Why not have the plasterboard skimmed over? If there is nothing to plaster to (some bits of bays are often wooden studs, not all brick), then plasterboard will have to go back on anyway.
