A few pictures of the snow.
The Land Rover has reached a state of almost completed. The brakes are being bedded in and one edge of one patch welded up. Then as soon as the brakes start to pull straight it’ll be in for an MoT.
We had a little snow this weekend, only a little. They had more than 6 inches an hour east of us. I didn’t know that until this morning when I spoke with a colleague.
Made some great progress on the Land Rover with some help. Got bits shotblasted, then galvanised, other parts just painted. Dragged it all down to Cornwall in the Volvo, one wing went via Hannah in the Mazda. Also visited the Great Dorset Steam Fair on the way down on the Thursday. then spent a few days building up the Land Rover.
I got two new tyres for the rear of the Volvo, also got it cleaned. This is a piece of glass pipe, a reducing fitting from 6″ to 4″ with the couplings for both ends.
But first off, the cat, he does this every once in while, no idea why. I can only imagine that he likes the feeling of the plastic stuff on his paws.
My PC is now connected to the network via an internet over power adapter. The adapter is a Zyxel as is our router. I get a ping of about 4ms to the router over the power adapter, which I think is pretty impressive.
We’re getting about 37Mbps out of our new internet service provider, a small company called Zen who are based in Rochdale.
I put a second coat of paint onto the doors and bit and pieces for the land rover last weekend too. I also bought a new air filter for the Volvo the other day, finally got around to fitting it today. It should make a fair difference:
That small brown toad stool that I posted a picture of the other week. Well it grew, as did the little red and white one, though that one lost it’s colour a little.
There was a pretty morning sky last week at work, I took this from the landing outside the office.
The cat pulled some funny faces and I happened to be trying to get an awesome picture of him roaring.
