  1. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    Bitcoin returns to $40,000 mark as Binance caps withdrawals and leverage
  2. Climate change

      I do not think that any water pump system, would have kept the flooded western cities of Germany safe and dry.  As far as I can see, there is very little you can do against these flash flood events. People who buy property near a river or where rain can collect just have to accept its going to happen sometimes.
  3. Coronavirus

    COVID-19: UK records 23,511 new coronavirus cases and 131 more deaths     At least the new infections are going down now

    Tesla shrugs off chip shortage to post $1bn quarterly profit for first time Nice profit, but I guess Tesla do not pay a dividend

        Cheers for that.   But its just what I said years ago, Robotaxi is very very difficult I am not sure it will be done in my life time, although I wish it would be, for when I get older and cannot drive anymore.   Cannot see why anybody will want to get a  subscription, to something that could years away is beyond me, its just giving Elon money for nothing  
  6. How to avoid a serious tipping mistake

    yeah, I have been to a few restaurants in the last week or 2, seems the prices have gone up, dishes I would normally get for 12 Euro are now 15 Euro.    I know the restaurants have probably lost a lot of money during the pandemic, but I cannot ever see the prices coming back down

    3 Companies Moving Forward With Robotaxis as Tesla Delays     Tesla CEO Elon Musk had hoped to have 1 million robotaxis on the road by the end of 2020, but good luck trying to flag down a driverless Tesla for a lift any time soon. And although Tesla continues to roll out updates to its "Autopilot" system, it is still very much a driver-assist system, and not a fully autonomous experience. Musk in announcing the latest software update urged customers to "please be paranoid" and not hand over too much responsibility to the vehicle.   Like I said, this will not come quick if it ever does    
  8. Even if you buy private, you are not without rights, if the last owner sells it with a known defect and has not told you about it.   Go to the ADAC or website, you can download a form which describes the current condition of the car in some detail, get the last owner to fill it out, then if you buy it and something goes very wrong with it that they did not tell you about it, you can in theory take them to court to get some money of them.   If its a uncle of the guy selling it, make sure you get the owner to fill it out not the uncle.   Even if its second hand, look through any bills the owner has kept, check for a regular service history, that always tells you how well the car has been treated, do that even if you buy from a dealer.
  9. How to avoid a serious tipping mistake

    I was told, to round up to the nearest Euro, as the staff are paid enough in Germany.   While in the US, give them 20 %, as the staff are not paid enough, and get part of the wages from tips

    yeah, I watched that a couple of days ago, and thought it was a really nice car   Much better when you can attach it to a Tesla Supercharger
  11. What made you laugh today?

    More hate talk
  12. Why are you unhappy today?

    sorry to hear that Alex   My mother seems to get heart and breathing problems, not sure it bad enough to take the pain and risk of going to see her, as she says they are just testing at the moment. And its very difficult to organize a trip at the moment

    Lots of people seems to think the next big thing for Tesla will be solar panels and home storage, not cars
  14. Radiator off but heating is still present

    The heating system is almost always turned off during sommer   Its just very hot and the heat has come into where you live   Open the windows at night, let in the cooler air, in the morning close the windows and put the shutter down if you have one   Take a cold bath   drink cold drinks....   Your raditor will warm up in the winter time if you set the control to 2 or 3 or higher.    The snow flake, is the temperature at which the radiator will come on ( maybe 9 deg ) to warm the room, it does not cool your room, u would need air con to do that

    Interesting view of the future, if it all comes true, then of course TESLA shares are going to sky rocket. but if not what will happen.   Cannot see the average joe, wanting to part with 199 a month, to have a car which can drive itself ( even if it works !), ok, road haulage firms, probably will take it up, taxi firms etc
