Ay up!

Does anyone know,how I can retrieve a lost Windows 7 password?

Otterchops is sulking because her Lexia session did not happen. Mainly because some dimwit had forgotten how to get into his computer......

Are you sure Otterchops is sulking? She may actually be relieved!

Hello, friends!

I am a happy girl!!!!

I now have a working cruise control! The switch and clip arrived yesterday and papa fitted them this morning. He tested them with Lexia then took me out on the road, I've never had cruise control before so even I liked the surge of power when it kicks in. Papa was, needless to say, over the moon!

Hello, Friends!

Papa finally got his Lexia working but failed to program in my remote fobs. He says he will have to change my $pink bunnies$ steering lock so he can program them in. At least it will mean he has one key to fit everything.

This left him feeling a little frustrated.

One thing he did notice is that my throttle was only opening 2/3 of the way so he adjusted my throttle cable, after removing my injection ECU, my fusebox and my fusebox carrier. Then he could only just get his fingertips in! My throttle pedal now allows him to put his foot down ALL THE WAY!!!!!! We are both looking forward to this!

Please watch out for speed cameras, Papa..... 8-[

The pain they may cause his wallet will ensure he does Otter ;)

That is where a working cruise control can save you money. I use mine when I am travelling through motorway road-works with average speed cameras (I am glad they are not really good cameras; they would nail you if you were 0.01MPH over the posted limits!), as I then know my foot won't cost me money and gain me points.

Hello, friends.

My Papa is strange sometimes. Sometimes? All the time!

This week I have been carrying big sheets of corrugated iron which Papa says is to mend the roof with, I wonder if he has plans to convert me into an H van? Hope not, I am a Luxobarge!

Having a day with my feet up after a busy week, or so I thought! Papa has woken me up JUST to check my oil and water and pump up my tyres! Anyway, at least he is taking care of me.

Getting due for my autumn oil change and I think I'm may be due some new coolant.

I'm sure when I was hatched my coolant lasted 5 years! Where does he get some of that?

Love

Otterchops.

Hello, friends.

The old Fool has had an easy time of it, just driving me and putting the odd splash of diesel in my tank. To keep him on his toes I do sometimes turn off my automatic lights or pout my automatic wipers on high speed which puts an amusing expression on bits face!

So what should I do to shake him up a bit.

Any ideas?

I have not turned off my radio for a few days. I know, I shall stop his phone and it's hands free kit from connecting! Fancy a Steam Age Twit like him fancying himself as a 21st Century Geezer!

Have fun, my friends

You must be bored if you look for harmless little antics to play on him!!!

Just don't do as my daughter's 207 does to her.. It plays a horrible game of randomly cutting out on her...

Tomorrow I'm going to give her 207's BSI such a reboot it'll not forget for a while...

So, just carry on with the harmless antics but maybe up the frequency a bit...

Could you put some funny messages on his display perhaps?

Well, you could do a bit of forward planning, Otterchops. On your birthday (27th June, 2002) you see what he does. If Papa gets you a nice present you give him a return present of not playing up (barring real problems), but if he forgets you start sulking (but carefully, so that he does not consider getting a replacement luxury barge!).
