Re: GESY weakness

This came about because of a misleading document from BOCOC which drools on unhelpfully about E121 and S1 with problems with the Swiss Insurance. I still have the problems!

My OH and I have been patients of a given GP for 21 years. I complained that we have been unable to register with him and have received the following response from the powers that be: We would like to inform you that the specific personal doctor has reached the limit of 2500 that he is able to regis...

Re: My experiences after 2 month driving electric SUV...

What sort of emissions are created in the generating of electricity in the first place? How much does it cost to recharge the battery and how long does the battery last before it needs replacing? In my case, with a straight hybrid, all the electricity is generated within the car and is included in ...

Re: My experiences after 2 month driving electric SUV...

So what is the L/100km consumption of your Lexus? Difficult to answer. I'll quote realistic estimated averages with tyres at 2.3 atm, careful driving, quoted per tankful of ~33-38 l, comfortable inside temp, aircon/CD player on, engine set at Econ. Spring/autumn 20-30°C Mostly long trips 80% mixed ...

UNSG still hopeful that a durable Cyprus settlement can be achieved

Don’t recall. Let go of what has passed. Don’t imagine. Let go of what may come. Don’t think. Let go of what is happening now. Don’t examine. Don’t try to figure anything out. Don’t control. Don’t try to make anything happen. Rest. Relax, right now, and rest. These are a modern take on the 'six nail...

Re: Two police officers end up in A&E after incident in Geroskipou

One could say the cops had capital injuries :twisted: :twisted: In reality, the word capital has so many meanings, it can be applied to almost anything. In SOED, it takes up over 40 lines of definitions. In their examples, I like W. Holtby 'Here gallant Labour, with nothing to lose but its chains, w...

The electric car needs to have a capacity of less than 1,800 cc.
Cubic centimetres of what? The size of the electric motor? They haven't a clue, have they?

Really 0.2l /100km, not plugged into mains ever, that's a small glass of wine, :shock:
Read what I wrote, nit-wit!
0.2 l/100 km higher on typical 15-25 km round trips, lower on long trips.

Re: My experiences after 2 month driving electric SUV...

My experience with winter driving on my Lexus CT100H (not plug-in). When it's cold, it takes a few km on petrol for the engine to heat up before the hybrid kicks in. Consumption about 0.2 l/100 km higher on typical 15-25 km round trips, lower on long trips. I agree the acceleration is great with bot...

Turkey

In 1996, the UNEP Multilateral Fund mandated me to check that money given to Turkey for phasing out CFCs was spent correctly. I took with me an old handheld VHS-C camcorder and had a few spare minutes in the Istanbul/Izmir regions. I've just edited them, after 23 years! Attached are two short mini-t...

My favourite Xmas advert will always be this one. If you are easily offended then don't watch it.
Great idea for the Christmas message: appropriate but inoffensive IMHO.

Re: Question for Devil

5G is perfectly safe. Want the techie stuff? Electromagnetic radiation (simplistically) consists, as its name implies, of a combined electrical field and magnetic field. The question is how often the 2 fields change (frequency) and their intensity. For convenience, radio radiation is split up into r...
