    Help Parking CCJ

    Fingers crossed this is all resolved. The hotel has confirmed in writing I attend the event and that parking was free and that They had confirmed usage of the hotel next door as an overflow car park, the hotel next door has confirmed this too. They are contacting to parking company to try and resolve and I have submitted although information into the portal as evidence.

    Remote switching

    Could you not just pop a motion sensor bulb in there, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/B22-E27-E14-5W-220V-18-LED-Motion-Control-PIR-Sensor-Light-Lamp-Bulb-Cool-Warm-/312012637265
  6. Hi, not sure if anyone can help but I have just received paperwork for a parking fine CCJ from June. i appealed and thought I had one as I have had no requests to pay the fine or any information about the appeal until the CCJ Claim form yesterday. I know I should be charged, in a nutshell I attended an event at a hotel at Heathrow, it was busy car park was full, so they directed me to the car park next door, same hotel chain, same management company. They took my reg number, and I confirmed with the hotel desk this was correct and registered my car again with them when I left. Now I Don’t want a CCJ so do I just supply the court with this info and hope that they see sense or somehow just pay up to avoid a CCJ on my file.

    Rural Telecoms - A Solution

    Have a look at noip.com for getting around the static IP address issue. if you have a mini server you could set up you could look at DDNS as well. Noip would probably be simpler though.

    Window adjustment

    Would anyone know if and how I would adjust these windows for a tighter close against the seal. At present the noise is the same with/without the window shut and I can see they aren’t sealing properly. Any help much appreciated. At a freinds house for 24 hours so hoping to try And hell while I am here.

    New laptop spec

  11. We had a major issue with the electrics just after we occupied our house. The electrics would trip at random times of the day for no reason. All tests in the house came back as normal and all external tests by SSE came back as normal, this went in for 3-4 weeks, they re cabled our pole, checked out the electrics in all the local barns and farms to try and resolve. . It turned out it was the neighbours sewerage pink was going to earth or something whenever it switched on and trippping our electrics when it happened which was why it was happening at random times. Just thought I would mention as it could be something completely random and un thought of causing this.

    HMO wifi

    I would go wired with a switch and access points if you can. If it’s going to prove difficult though, my friend has 3 of these installed in an Old 3 story Victorian town house and they work well. I have never had any issues connections and using the Wi-fi via them. https://www.rselectricalsupplies.co.uk/bg-nexus-metal-brushed-steel-2-gang-wifi-range-extender-13a-socket-with-usb-and-grey-inserts-nbs22uwrg_16809?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI-9GShKDs3QIVioaRCh0jtQvkEAQYBSABEgIZ4PD_BwE
