RNR

Just got back from the RNR recruitment evening. I’m deffinatly interested in this however my only hesitation is the fitness requirements. I don’t think I can run 2.5k in 11 minutes or do 23 press-ups in 2 minutes.

Tesco

When I was at the checkout in tesco there were some flowers on the end of the belt and the checkout chick asked the lady in front if they were hers, she replied “no but he can by them for me” (looking at me). We exchanged some banter and went on our way. 🙂

Today

Well today i went into Watford to get a DVD for my mum for mothers day. Started off by getting there too early and the place was empty (forgot shops don’t open till 11) so had McD’s breakfast. Now I tried Virgin/HMV/WHsmith and they had all sold out. I then popped into Maplins to pick up a new multimeter so I could run some more checks on my battery and for a fiver was a bargain. Then off to look for DVD at Tesco Watford (sold out) Tesco Pinner (sold out) so I thought sod it and came home and ordered it from Amazon.

Done some tests on battery and the new multimeter showed there was a drain and i’ve narrowed it down to the ignition relay. Funny how the other mulitmeter didn’t show it even more so cause it’s a work one ha, but alas a cheapie £5 one did rolls eyes

Also the V measurement between the two varried slightly which was odd

With relay 0.22 A drain

Without relay 0.06 A drain which is about right

12.48V Fluke

Battery

We seeing as i’ve been having problems with the battery on my fezza I decided to go and get a decent one.

I picked up a Varta Calcium Silver Top one that’s normally used in escort diesels. I got this because of the stronger starting power it provides. I’ve stuck it on and done a drop test and meter show no drain so fingers crossed. I’ll check it on wed and see if it starts ok.

Current reading 12.54V
