Power wiring kit & C5 radio interview

Chris has finished editing the fitting guide I started for the quick release power wiring kit.

He's also uploaded the radio interview he did recently on BBC Radio Solent.

Birthday presents arrived early!

Ruth and my Mum&Dad have said they'll pay for the following items that Chris sent me today:

  1. A neon kit

  2. A new set of tyres and inner tubes

  3. The ephemera CD

Oh yes, they are all for/about the C5 :)

Fancy two months free access to Which?

You can have the first month on me, and the second would be a free trial in your name.

Go to Which? Online and login with a username of mark.szolkowski 'AT' (replace the 'AT' with @)and password of robbingtwa

Why am I giving this away? Because I am disgusted with their behaviour. I signed up for their 30-day free trial in a weak moment. They insist on credit card details "just in case you decide to sign up" in order to "make things easier".

Yeah, right.

What they actually mean is that they charge you at the end of your trial period UNLESS YOU CANCEL THE SUBSCRIPTION FIRST. I emailed them telling them what I thought, along with ideas about how to write software that would automatically email customers at the end of the 30 days and get them to sign up if they wished. Did I get a response? Yes, an automated one saying, "Sorry you've decided to cancel". How ironic.

Sinclair Z1 AM radio

I've been toying with the idea of getting one of these for ages, mainly for when I am out on a long run on my own. I don't really like the idea of running round with an expensive iPod, but one of these would break up the monotony and being only in one ear should mean I can still hear what's going on around me.

Cheaper petrol?

I use my C5 for going to the local shops. For those times when I need to use the car, it'd be great to have something like the Pipeline Card up and running.

Sinclair Speech

I found a copy of a speech made by Sinclair in 1984, then an article disagreeing with most of it, followed by a response.

I'll let you make your mind up!
