    Profi editorial boo-boo.

    :eek:Anyone else noticed the big editorial mistake in December 21's Profi? Massive mistake. Either that or perhaps they are testing their readers to see if they actually read the articles? :bookworm:

    Giddiness and vertigo.

    Earlier this week I woke up suddenly from a deep sleep, turned very rapidly by 180 degrees in bed while rising to a sitting position at the side of the bed. I felt very giddy while sitting there but put it down to my rapid awakening. Next morning I woke, sat up and my head was spinning and...

    MF online parts books

    Anyone actually gained access to the phantom parts system? My dealer doesn't have a clue and has failed to get customers on the system. According to the MF website all that is needed the customer's end is to download the app and get a login name and password from the dealer who should register...

    Kingspan tanks and their level monitoring.

    I'm confused. I'm installing two new bunded fuel stations. A 2500 and a 3500 litre in the 'Advanced' specification. There are many reasons I'm confused. The 2500 tank comes with the Kingspan Sonic system, which is fairly straightforward and has a transmitter that just screws into the inner tank...

    I'm thinking of rationalising my camera collection

    So will have some for sale. Micro four-thirds, so nice and light weight. Will be replaced by a new more professional grade M4/3 camera. I love the format. I've not decided exactly what I'm going to sell yet but it could be an Olympus E-M10 Mkii, a Panasonic G7 and a G6. Very low shutter counts...

    So much for extended grazing. The Spring deluge.

    For the first time in at least a couple of decades I've had to rehouse the cows in late May, day and night, because it is so wet and cold for them and they are making an unacceptable mess of the fields and pastures. Also it is probably only the third or fourth time in the last 40 years that...

    Farming going down with hardly a whimper...

    Worth the effort to listen to this sensible commentary to the end.

    Here we go again.....

    At least 30% of land being actively managed for nature is the latest 'demand'. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-56914636 What a crock of s**t... Nature and wildlife in Wales is undergoing a "mass extinction event", environmental charities have said. Ahead of next week's election, they have...

    Cabs rusting

    While cabs are far better built nowadays than they were back in the 1970's and 80's there is still one remaining black spot. There may be more but this is the only common rust issue I know of. It is the roof of MF tractors. They are made of thin mild steel and they rust like heck. This just...

    The squeeze on milk and meat continues...

    From https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-56807520 today. Radical new climate change commitments will set the UK on course to cut carbon emissions by 78% by 2035, Boris Johnson will announce this week. Hitting the targets would require more electric cars, low-carbon heating, renewable...

    Yipee! Another pickup thread.

    Is there a market for this little beauty of a Hyundai Santa Cruz light pickup in the UK? From comments over the years it may be that there are many that are ready to put their money where their mouths are for it. :scratchhead: I'm not so sure.

    Pest control and rifle scope.

    For the first time in 50 years nearly, I've purchased an air rifle. Surprised at how much the technology has moved on. This is a compressed air charged weapon with a couple of 10 pellet magazines, sub 12lbs, so not needing a firearms license. Decided, after watching many reviews on YouTube to...

    NatWest identity verification

    They have been pestering me for this for months, and I assume they have been pestering many other businesses the same. I have a problem in that firstly the WhooYu app just will not accept any of our passport photos. No matter how many times, in different light we try, and so on, it just will...

    Police ineptitude

    Just noticed that the Police Service has 'accidentally' wiped 400,000 'customer' records, including fingerprints and DNA. Either they are completely incompetent blithering idiots, or as I suspect, there is more to this than meets the eye. Surely they will, like any normal computer user, have...

    Pushing their luck with pollution

    A new dairy farm outfit near me made me quite angry today. I passed a few field-widths from it on the A487 coast road today and on problem, although the cows are out in a sea of mud and look terrible. That wasn't what made me angry though. When I came back from Aberystwyth a large section of the...
