Out of time itself comes this relic of a car…

I think it’s out of fuel as well.

Posted in response to Becky’s #timesquare challenge. Link below.

Not only am I out of time, I’m also out of space at present as well. Posts may appear sporadic (well, more sporadic than usual!) as I’ve treated myself to a spanking new computer (gamer no less – not that I’ll be gaming… no time for that malarkey!) and whopping huge monitor (well, TV if truth be told), and I’m currently downloading all my bits and bobs onto it. It / they are taking up quite a lot of space, so the original computer, monitor, mouse and keyboard set up, the one I’m using for my blog posts, is perched right at the end of the desk, and I’m in the tiniest of spaces typing this now. When I get longer cables, I’ll be able to spread things around a bit, but until then, I shall be posting through this letterbox of a space. ‘Tis all fun. Onwards and upwards!!!

    1. Now that you mention it, Elaine, they do look a tad used, don’t they?! 😀
      With tech – I’m OK when it works. When it doesn’t, I like to think I’m OK… perhaps OK in slow motion!

  1. Hi Tom!!! 🙂 ❤

    Tip from an expert!!! 🙂 ❤

    1) Make sure you have a spike protector on each plug you stick in a wall socket..

    These handy little buggers ground any massive surges to the point that, if it’s too big a pulse, they fry before your hardware does!!! 🙂 ❤

    2) Group your connections so one wall switch provides power just to the hardware you are using: Monitor, PC, sound system and printer can all go on to one, four gang extension lead and if you get one with individual switches you can keep the power to the printer off until you need it to save a little electricity.

    3) If you have a Wi-FI Router and radio/alarm which connects to other devices like your Smart Box and/or TV, you can use a separate spike protector and switched extension lead so they are always on.

    4) If you have a second PC set-up (as I have) then add a third four gang extension plugged into a spare socket on your second switched four gang extension so you can run it independently and just turn off the socket it when you don’t need it! 🙂 ❤

    Love the car Tom, it’s very detailed for a toy!!! 🙂 ❤

    Love, hugs and a VERY Merry Christmas!!! 🙂 ❤

    1. Thanks for the tips, Prenin… already had some in use. With my current set up, I do find myself in some funny angles… but I’m OK with that as it shows I’m still flexible!!! 😀
