Legends from our own lunchtimes

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

It was quite cool on the outside of the doona this morning when finally we woke, so cool that the computer refused to charge. On investigation, it's little sensor thingy was telling me that the processor was shivering at 2° and could I please come back later when it was a little warmer as it would like to lay under the doona a little longer itself.

I'm not sure what is going on with us and electrical circuits at the moment, but co-operation seems reluctant to say the least.

Today is the day before which our solar panels back at DickyWorld are supposed to be connected to the grid.  Whether or not they are depends I suspect on a home-grown equivalent of Bill turning up on the day, to attach the inverter, which seems quite coincidental really because here we now have a box of inverter, charger and some other thing with an orange plastic top which we'll attempt to hack in temporarily till the real job gets here if indeed Bill turns out to be half as reliable as the nice people from Energex.

In the meantime, there are a few fiddly jobs to take care of, perhaps a bit more cleaning round the engine bay to be done. The gains are now in smaller increments, and hopefully it will be easier to find any leaks in the fuels system which may or may not be the cause of our current lack of animation and perhaps to clean up some of the wiring ready for surgery.

In any case, we need to be ready in a fortnight, when we are due tear out all the wiring and start again, to bring the poor old thing kicking and screaming into the 21st century, fitting that "black box" that Michel recommended all that time ago.

Now that sounds like fun.

Almost as much fun as it would be tearing around on the old AutoUnion motorised cycle we happened upon in the car park this morning.

Brings back memories... 1966, when I had Solex in The Lower Lands!
