  1. I've never got new cars due to the insane depreciation after 5 minutes, but i'm now in a position to get one as a holiday and general chore car. Having settled on a new 520D, i'm told that almost 4 in 5 new cars are bought this way. PCP. But when you add the deposit to the monthly payments with not that great APR, it ain't cheap at all. Then i am told i can only do 8,000 miles a year, have to service it to the letter and not damage it in any way or the pathetic guaranteed value after 3 years will be even less. I must be wrong if 80% of you think PCP is good, but it seems an incredibly expensive way to not buy a car to me i am afraid. If i do pay the final value fee and keep the car i have a £30,000 car i paid nearly £36,000 for which after 3 years is worth maybe £18,000. £500 a month in losses. If i'm looking at this wrongly i would love someone to shout the corner for PCP and explain where my maths are maybe all wrong. Thanks.
  2. Vehicle has 146k miles and other then service records for years 2007 and 2010, there is no maintenance or repair history. It came to me last month with new looking trans and engine oil, both way over filled and a noisy engine. I drained both oils to proper level. I see a lot of vids on this engine and this noise when cold, however, none sound as loud as mine and also when hot. Here is audio of the sound. https://imgur.com/a/73h9MKr This sound is present when engine cold and hot. Maybe my imagination, but it might be more noisy when hot. The audio is only 7 seconds, sorry bout that, but it's a constant sound. Note that that page opens with the video playing but sound x-ed out, so u need to turn on the video's sound. Ticking noise drawns out engine noise. If you dont hear the engine running, then up ur volume and you will hear it in the background. Again, if u hear nothing, then the webpage video sound is off. Right after shutdown if i check the engine or trans oil, the dip stick handles are OUCH! hot. Hotter then any engine Ive ever checked and Ive checked a lot. Does that mean anything? Dash temp gauge was at 50%. Engine compartment is definitely much more hot then my 2 banger 2003 tacoma is. The mentioned 2010 48k miles service was for the VVT-i LSC90K KIT,OIL HOSE,NO.1 part 0400933131. Looking, I dont see the yellow that indicates the replacement hose, so maybe it was not really changed, or maybe the yellow has burned off. Either way i need to service this soon, because if it was done at 48k, well then it's been another 98k more miles since it was replaced and Ive read of these replacement hoses also failing. Im not up to replacing with the solid pipe right now, so I'll use rubber maybe some goodyear hi temp hi pressure hose and I wont let it go past another 10 or 20k miles before i address it again. Is goodyear the best automotive hose? The engine and accessories look very oxidized, but Ive seen a few other vids showing the same, so must be ok? This oxidation? wipes off much easier then any non automotive aluminum oxidation that Ive dealt with in the past. Ive read a few comments about PCV fumes helping lead to the VVTi hose failure, so Im thinking to leave off that engine cover? Of course, Im also going to replace the PCV valve.
  3. I have terrible skin, I always have. I have big bores, black heads, sebaceous filaments, white heads, and cysts. My skin will look and act oily but its actually very dry a lot of the time. My skin is itchy and painful and embarrassing. I have no clue what to do, no clue what products to use to cleanse, remove makeup, treat the acne, nor treat the dryness. I take off makeup with oil free remover and wipes, wash my face with biore, tone with clean and clear, and use a lotion like cera-ve but I obviously need to do something different.
  4. Expanding your business can be a daunting task, but it can also be exciting and rewarding if you do it the right way. My advice would be to start by researching the different markets you could potentially target. Look into who your potential customers are, what their needs are, and how your product could meet those needs. You may also want to look into different online platforms you could use to reach more customers. Once you have an idea of what kind of products you want to sell, you can start creating a business plan. This plan should include marketing strategies, pricing strategies, and other strategies you can use to make sure your business is successful. If you need additional guidance, I highly recommend reaching out to professional business plan writers at https://www.ogscapital.com/locations/business-plan-writers-in-seattle-washington/ They can help you create a comprehensive business plan that outlines your goals and strategies for achieving them. This can be a great way to ensure your business is successful and grows.

  7. Hey there! It sounds like you're dealing with some frustrating trailer lighting issues, but rewiring with adhesive heat shrink is definitely a good plan to keep the water out. As for high-quality trailer lights, I highly recommend checking out truckelectrics.com. They have a great selection of LED lights that withstand tough conditions, including saltwater. Plus, they offer fast shipping and excellent customer service. I hope this helps! Let us know how it goes with the rewiring and new lights. Fingers crossed for smooth sailing (or towing, rather) from here on out!

  9. Audacity Games has proved that it is possible to generate a QR-code on-the-fly using a stock 6507 with 128 bytes of RAM. Since it is currently unlikely that they will share their code (someone should still ask them), we will try do the same. This topic is here to discuss, collect info and hopefully develop a working code which everybody can embed into their own projects. The source code of my QR code generator can be found here. Here are some useful links: https://www.embeddedrelated.com/showarticle/1182.php (Solomon-Reed error correction in C) https://www.thonky.com/qr-code-tutorial/ (extensive tutorial about QR code generation) https://github.com/nayuki/QR-Code-generator (QR code generator library with source code for various programming languages) https://www.nayuki.io/page/creating-a-qr-code-step-by-step (QR code generation explained step by step) http://qrlogo.kaarposoft.dk/qrdecode.html (QR code check, with debug info)
  10. I purchased some perfume from an Ebay seller just before Christmas, which was a gift for my wife. When she opened the perfume on Christmas day it was very apparent that the item was a fake, it was a different smell than the genuine perfume the colour was also different. I reported the problem to Ebay who informed me that it was a Paypal dispute because I was out of the Ebay guarantee seller period. The case has been going on for a few weeks and Paypal informed me today that they are refusing to make a refund under the grounds "This decision was made because if an item is materially similar to the seller's description, we do not consider it to be significantly not as described." This decision can only promote the selling of fake perfumes on Ebay. I am absolutely disgusted with Paypal's decision. Does Paypal have a complaint process for rejected claims?
  11. I need a script on how to make it where if I press E near a bed I will start sleeping in the bed!
  12. One way to do this is to use a digital protractor or angle finder to measure the angle of the divisions on your plates, and then divide 360 degrees by that angle. Make sure to have no issues with your rotary table drill. For example, if your plates have 18 divisions, each division is 20 degrees. So, to divide into 100, you would need to turn 5 degrees for each scribed line. Another option is to use a calculator or software that can help you calculate the number of holes to use. I hope this helps, and good luck with your project!
