Try to pay the Congestion Charge for that reg - asks you to confirm the vehicle type

Debating whether to go to the GP about a swollen eyelid I've had for a few days. Wasn't brought on by any impactor anything... I rarely visit Dr's but problems with my eyes always scare me. So am I worrying too much or should go seek professional advice?

Getting an appointment with a GP can sometimes take ages - you could try an optician. My girlfriend had been having probs with her eyes recently and happend to pop in and the optician who quickly diagnosed the prob, offered her advice and months of sore eyes evaporated in days.

I'm not sure if they'll charge you for an eye test though.

Either way do go to see someone. It's probably nothing but it's best to have these things checked out, better to nip things in the bud before they get serious.

Who makes good, reasonably priced single speed freewheels?

White Industary ones seem really expensive (and far too much for me at the moment).
Shimano ones seem to be about 20 a pop.
There are a whole load of cheaper ones about. Are any of these any good, or should I just go for a Shimano one?

I'm looking for a 16T I think, and for a 1/8 chain.

This site thinks slightly different, I searched on the Fleet Number (VLA70) it suggests that plate is LJ04 YWZ. The photo here agrees.

Also, askMID says LJ04YMZ isn't insured, which seems unlikely on a bus.

Sorry to burst your bubble.

Good detective work, everyone!

I'm talking to one of the TfL press officers now, and have told her we might be looking for YWZ instead.

Apologies, if you click through to the big image it is clearly YWZ:

@Guys.

I'm looking for an aluminium box and am drawing an absolute blank. Something similar to this...



For use on a trailer. I need a large capacity box, ideally over 200L capacity. Anyone know where I can look for these? Google isn;t turning much up.

Thanks

A guy in LMNH recently told me his mate makes bike trailers. Big fuck off ones. Somewhere in the railway arches near kings cross. A google search might reveal them and they might have what you are looking for.

The laptop is running Win7 x64 native.

It's also a laptop which means no new soundcard or video card and the sound control stuff is all outboard in the A&H DX anyway. It's DirextX kernel driver that is causing the latency but how to get around this?

John, you could ask Peter Eland of VeloVision. He's very knowledgeable about UK manufacturers and distributors. I'm sure there's someone on the Continent somewhere who makes that sort of thing, but perhaps Peter knows someone over here, too.

Maybe being a bit dim here...

I'm trying to apply for a job online. There is an 'apply for this position' tab, which when I click begins an Outlook wizard. I'm surprised it does that anyway, as normally such a tab begins an application form process. I don't have an Outlook account and don't particularly want one, but it's the only result the tab gives.

So, I try and complete the wizard by filling out all the fields, which includes my name, email address (my existing one is with yahoo), and password. When the wizard begins configuring it is able to establish a network connection, and it finds my yahoo address on the server. It cannot finish the third part, which is to log-on to the server and send a test email message. Without this happening the configuration process cannot complete - a pop-up appears which asks for me to re-enter my network password. I do this, but nothing happens. This step fails, so I'm unable to do anything else. It would seem that all I need to do is send an email to apply to the address I would be given at the end of the process, but I can't arrive there.

What am I doing wrong, and why would this tab want me to use Outlook? I have rung the company and been given a generic email address which I have contacted, as they know nothing about the recruitment side, but I don't hold out much hope of them replying.

The apply for this position link sounds like it is a standard mailto: link, which will open your computer's default email client and create an email with a given address and subject. As you don't have an Outlook account on your computer, Outlook is asking you to create one before you can create this message. Just grab the address and given subject line (if there is one) and send a mail from your client of choice. There is no magic job application form for you at the end of this digital rainbow, just a blank email awaiting your input. Sorry.

It is that simple, but they don't divulge the email address anywhere on the application. It's contained within the link. Naturally, then can kiss my arse. I don't want to be Prince Philip's valet anyway.

The front page tells you how to get around the blackout if you need to. I can't do it here at work so didn't and now can't remember the detail. Something about Java or something.

my mums a nurse and she says that if it has a head on it, its a sty. Apparently an oldish treatment is to put a used teabag on it for a while. If it doesnt, then it may be connected to sinusightus (sp) and should be checked out. Stys can occur if you're run down or tired and I think they should go away by itself.

Hopefully that helps.

I'd ask in the road wheels thread mate. You'll have a few pages to read and probably find what your looking for.

I bid on a rear derailleur, but shortly after bidding ended I realised I could bastardise my two fucked derailleurs to make one functioning one thus buying this one off eBay would be totally pointless and the part would just end up in the spare parts bin.

I emailed the seller explaining this, that I was very sorry for the hassle, but I'd rather not buy it just for it to sit in a box. He replied:

"I'm Sorry but you were bidding to buy so please make payment and i will get it posted out ASAP"

I don't want it. I have 100% feedback after over 8 years of being a member, I'm quite happy to sacrifice one negative feedback at the hands of this guy.
