the blue dolphin - 95 GTS Toyota MR2 turbo
it's finally happened -
after 7 years and 60k+ miles of motoring, some easy and some a little bit spirited I have to report the demise of the temperature monitor battery. It showed me the way to not spending money when it wasn't required to be spent. How on the road intake temperatures on the std turbo were not high enough to warrant spending money on a fancy intercooler setup (we'll ignore the brief flirtation with charge cooling thank you) so spend it on petrol instead. It has served me well and the car faithfully through all this time but it has been dealt a death blow by my own hand. Indeed, I left the bloody thing on after last Sunday's little drive out and by the Wednesday night when I got back in the car the battery symbol was showing. Time to purchase a new 9V battery and in a fitting tribute I have shown below a picture of how the gauge looked in it's prime.

tbars oot drive
because I could. Roads were pretty quiet though naturally some traffic was encountered where I couldn't do anything about it. No matter it was still a fabby run.
Car needs a clean, a real good clean as the trees have been dropping sap all over it.

weather is pants -
I mean really pants. Chucking down with rain, can't be bothered even going out in the car however it did get badly jet washed at the weekend just there. Will give it a proper clean and polish soon.
Batch Watermarking protecting your pictures online -
I've had it a couple of times where folks have linked to my website to get a picture or in fact lift text and not give credit where they found it. In fact one guy posted a picture of my chargecooler core and said it was the one he had just bought! Even had my fireplace in the background.
Now the way I used to add copyright marks in was to edit each picture individually which you can imagine isn't quick or even interesting to do! So I searched the net and as you do you find something that does the job. Easy Sector does a Batch Watermarker program that fits the bill nicely. It does a pile of things but I just use it for the easy marking of pictures I post online. Batch WaterMarker - watermarking your online pictures and much more
I've added to the menu bar -> but figured a post about it would be nice too. You can get a trial version from their website and see if it fits the bill, if not just remove it. It does for me what I need so I think I'll be keeping it.
