  1. "Intent" is notoriously difficult to prove, and I suspect that the success or otherwise of legislation related to Q14 would be wholly dependent upon the burden of proof needed to establish the intent. Prima facie, the clear answer to Q14 should be "it should be considered a very serious offence" since the fact that there is intent indicates beyond doubt that potentially serious criminal activity may result. The question is not asking anything about the situation where the intent is not proven, so merely having possession without clear intent is outside the scope of Q14. That being said, r
  2. "Historic Vehicle" is a taxation class, not a vehicle type.
  3. It wouldn't be a commercial vehicle per se, only if you were using it for commerce. It would probably be considered to be a Private Heavy Goods Vehicle in the eyes of the law.. The outcome and the legal situation would depend entirely on the wording of whatever agreement he is trying to enforce, I would think.
  4. I have found a similar thing, if I search for keywords that I know exist, the search returns zero results. If is do a Google search of the site (i.e., enter "site:hmvf.co.uk <keyword>" in the google search box) for the same keyword, it will be found. I suspect that there is a malfunction with the search facility. For example, typing the word "Singapore" into the search box returns no results. Typing "site:hmvf.co.uk Singapore" into google produces pages of results.
  5. I wonder how long it will be before all the ground source heat pumps become a problem, since if the heat is taken out of the ground, the ground must get cooler. Ultimately until there is an acceptance that the population has become unsustainably large for the planet and moderation becomes the order of the day, I can't see any real improvement happening. I am relieved that I will (probably) be just a forgotten memory by the time it comes to a head.
  6. Almost impossible to answer since it depends on how you're using the tool, but generally I expect a morning's work from a 5Ah battery on the 1/2 drive.
  7. I have recently generally moved from using air impact wrenches to Milwaukee M18 cordless wrenches, which are excellent. I have a range from 3/8" SqDr up to 1" SqDr, and I haven't yet found anything that an air tool or corded electric will do that these won't. I have a 3/8" Milwaukee right angle impact wrench, and it is a genuine impact wrench not a nut runner, but the 3/8" tools are relatively low torque and their suitability will rather depend on the size of your project. For most vehicle work up to Landrover sort of size, I find the 1/2" drive most useful, it gets used a lot! Lar
  8. Before long you are likely to be unable to link from anywhere to a site that doesn't support SSL, and probably won't be able to access a non-SSL site from any mainstream browser. It is actually a very sensible move towards better security, and whilst I fully understand a reluctance to get all technical it is probably just postponing the inevitable.
  9. (b) above is interesting, as over the years I have several times had errors on the V5 which DVLA has been strangely reluctant to correct, for example, a green SAAB 99 which mysteriously DVLC (at the time) insisted was red and seemed incapable of correcting!
  10. If I right click on a photo link and select "open in new tab" this is I get the error message shown below. I don't know if this is of any diagnostic use to Those Who Know How This Stuff Works, it means little to me. This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below. <Error> <Code>AccessDenied</Code> <Message>Access Denied</Message> <RequestId>AE190A16543DDDA9</RequestId> <HostId>COwLn24GyrKhHk06v2nPwfs6P0akwg
  11. I'm glad you asked this because I was about to ask the same question. I have the same problem with Windows 10 laptop, also Android tablet and phones. At least I know it's not just me.
  12. Still hoping for updates to this very interesting and impressive overhaul!
  13. Very interesting, thank you for answering your own question!
  14. I'm sorry if my post offended you (which is strongly suggested by the tone of you post) but based on what can be seen from the OP's photo, and based on the trajectory of the top of my own (manual) door, I stand by my opinion. There is no way that that link requires an offset of that size at the door end. A quick diversion to YouTube to watch videos of similar doors in operation fully supports this view.
  15. Looking at the photo again and being mindful of this suggestion, I am inclined to think that the link has been fitted the wrong way round anyway. The shape as fitted makes no sense, if flipped as per Mr Herbert's suggestion it would, I suspect, fit perfectly.
