  1. How important is it to fit a varistor between the contacts of the maglock then?
  2. Neither A nor B but somewhere in between. I'm surprised you didn't see it especially coming back into Timsbury from Tunley, it's clearly visible to the right. It's just off the top of your map in the middle about 300 yards North East of Wall Mead Farm. Love that study-thanks for the link. As statistically significant as forgetting your umbrella when it rains it would seem! Just remembered there's a big old house in Timsbury with cameras all over it and on turrets with a very nifty looking access control system at the driveway entrance (actually I posted some photos of it on here years ago). Johnny Depp either owns it or owned it. Now that would be a great contract to have. Presumably client confidentiality (like patient confidentiality) forbids anyone from speaking about it though.
  3. Swear under my breath all the time Scratch my balls when the patient isn’t looking have been know to have a cuppa on my desk in my GP room (not implant room!).
  4. It seems to me to be a complimentary combination. It's funny how working on the human body (examination, diagnosis, treatment plan and then treatment) is strangely identical to working on all sorts of other non-living stuff, same process, same diagnosis and "treatment plan" and clinical treatment. It must be a good feeling when the people around you feel safe in the knowledge that you have this knowledge. About being autonomous, I strongly believe that experience is a huge factor in ability to deal with medical emergencies and that's what you have. I haven't ever had a real medical emergency in the practice yet (just the odd vaso-vagal syncope) and hopefully never will. We're supposed to be able to deal with the basics but without the experience I'm not sure we'd be up to much, much better to leave it to you blokes! I stopped worrying about not being a rock star in my 30s probably even though I'd been a dentist for some time. It was a bit of a sad realisation at first but now I consider myself frankly lucky to not have pursued that avenue professionally. I like my job even if it's extremely stressful at times and I can play music whenever and with whatever I like now so it's win-win. My folks always struggled financially and I realised that by being a musician I would had exactly the same problems, in fact probably worse, than they did. Of course if you're one of the lucky few then you're made but it's a hell of a risk. Did you notice the hill when you went to Timsbury? Normally you can see it from miles around. I'd say they're much better than no floss at all but as the water jet can't be that strong (or people would probably injure themselves and sue) I reckon actual flossing or interdental brushes if you have bigger gaps, is best. So definitely get one if you don't use floss or ID brushes. I read a study once where they'd calculated that when you add up the surface area between your teeth it came to 40% of the total surface area of all your teeth. So someone not cleaning between their teeth (manual or electric brush won't do it) is missing almost half of them in effect.
  5. Never thought of that, it does a bit doesn't it? Actually got quite into In the night Garden since my daughter was born, strangely relaxing
  6. Close, one tree hill, Timsbury just up the road from Radstock. Spent my youth round there moseying about in the countryside between band practices in Midsomer Norton and Priston village hall. Those are good customers to have I reckon, the place has changed so much over the last 25 years, hardly recognise it, so much money has come down from London although the city centre itself has become one big coffee shop it would seem. Part time paramedic and installer sounds...different, I like it!. Sounds a bit like a bloke who played in rock bands until his early 20s and then went to dental school but still plays ;-) What do you do if you get 2 call outs at the same time then, 1 someone having a heart attack and another having a heart attack because their alarm won't work? BTW WSM fantastic, the great man himself (JC) being born there
  7. That's way further back than 2013! I'm liking the work garb though, I now have a strange image of Fred Dibnah in Leiderhozen up a ladder fitting cams...
  8. lol Ah Radstock, center of the universe! I hadn't noticed your Somerset reference DD. Joking aside, I still spend most of my time in France and the one thing I always yearn for is the Somerset countryside. You may recognise this:
  9. Good god no, the blood congeals and gets stuck in the grooves. I go for this look rather, the leather cleans up nicely: https://images.app.goo.gl/31BgpkNBGpRNJsVs7 What do security installers go for these days, something like suede with elbow pads I imagine?
  10. lol What the biker ones or the white ones we all wear?
  11. Describes my assistant to a T Don't know about the domed head though Now going to decide whether to put it through the door or get an armature housing or even tap a hole as just found out there's a reinforcing plate in the door on the inside. But there's a more important problem. All credit to you blokes for what you do-this is not easy and I've been buggering around with it for most of the day and I've got literally nothing done. Unfortunately due to the size of the transom, I'm in a no-man's land whereby I can't directly mount the magnet as the line of holes on the opposite side of the mounting bracket to the door leaf are right on the edge of the transom but if I use an L bracket the magnet is about an inch away from the armature. So I'm going to have to order an adjustable Lbracket (I think) and that's the day wasted. You live and learn.
  12. Thought I'd bump this if anyone would like some advice or help with anything dental related (or security-you never know :-D) or even just for Mr Happy to make fun of my drainpipes.
  13. Sometimes when I come here and ask questions, it reminds me of being at work. It's like pulling teeth. I'm here all week, the veal is reconstituted from Norway.
