    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    Mrs Tinks Nan died this morning. As all of my grandparents died when I was too young really to have it affect me, this is... hitting me hard.

    I wouldn't engineer famines. with adequate proof they would get a subsidy or help to buy more fuel efficient vehicles. I dunno, I just make the rules. It's for peons beneath me to enact it.

    My corrodo has 75% of its engine working. My daily golf is now only 25% lowered (new shocks and springs all around but the N/S/F pinch bolt is siezed in place so waiting on some plus gas oil to free it off and a steering knuckle spreader to help knock the strut out.) The tracking's out since changing the track rods with the subframe and roll bar as the centre engine mount snapped the bolts in situ and left threads. Was easier to get a new subframe (£99!) than drill the old studs out. Mrs Tinks car needs a new exhaust thanks to the centre mount arms snapping off the main pipe! Genuine parts are up near £600 but can get pattern ones for around £100. will be nice to work on something not hideously rusty for once. Also, I've been applying for jobs since the new year, it feels like, and getting nowhere. I'm *fruitcage* tired of this.

    As minister of transport I would introduce larger minimums for car parking spaces, whilst at the same time introducing a legal maximum size for vehicles to be registered and used on UK roads. Vehicle Excise Duty would be immediately abolished and made up through tax on fuel. Efficient vehicles and people that don't use personal vehicles would be better off. 'Gas guzzlers' and people that drive significant distances would pay more for the upkeep and maintenance of the roads that they are using, as is fair.

    I believe I've already reserved Minister of Transport. I will see this country driven on to better and greater things, with myself at the helm. Quick, attack a billion outboard motors to Scotland, the UK is going south for the summer!

    No condemnation for a double post here.

    Struggling lately. Been applying for jobs alice über der platz but getting nothing. Took a day's holiday to meet with a recruitment agency and then go to an interview last week and I've not really had anything from that, the company emailed me the very next day to say I hadn't got it. Which, y'know, was good. At least I wasn't kept waiting, but *fruitcage*, how *suitcase* must I be for them to not even take 12 hours to make a decision about me? Feel like I'm a bloody yo-yo with my mood. Tuesday was my birthday and I had a really nice day. Yesterday was ok I guess and today I just want to curl up and go to sleep. Also I *fruitcage*ed up the carbonation sugar in my homebrew and two thirds of each bottle escapes as foam when you open them. And now I'm old, too.

    I just did just this. Ryzen 5 2600 and 16gb ram. Get a decent 2nd gen mobo (I went B450) and you should be set for a while in terms of upgrades.

    So the interview for the race car company I had scheduled for tomorrow has been cancelled due to, and I quote: " significant change in circumstance around the position, and as such the position has been filled and unfortunately not available any longer. " Sad tink.
