    Top Tip For You All

    Top Tip For You All:

    Don't plug an electric heater to dry your wet motorcycle gear on the same circuit as already dodgy UPS......... If you do then get ready for lots of "AVR Boost Active" messages popping up in the event viewer......

    Peg a large rectangular sheet of blue tinted polythene onto your lawn. People in 'planes will think you have a swimming pool.

    Make your neighbours think you are an alien by wrapping yourself in baco foil, whilst standing in your back garden in the middle of the night pointing to the stars whilst making beeping noises.....
