I didn't have a problem adapting to drive on the other side. It was when I came back, the problems started - the biggest being Which side of the car do I get into?? I got into the habit of looking for the steering wheel before deciding whether to head to the left or the right...
I feel your pain. I need a gas gauge sender unit for a 2004 Honda Civic. It hooks on the back of the fuel pump. But can you buy it separately from the fuel pump? NOOOOOOO! Gotta buy the fuel pump too...$350. BS! (and I'm still looking for one because I'm not buying a new fuel pump to replace one that works just fine!)
Also recently hit a deer with my 2012 Honda Civic (yeah, I like Honda Civics). Relatively minor damage, but the plastic bracket that holds the left-side headlamp to the frame was shattered. The headlamp works fine. Can I just buy the bracket? NOOOOOOO! Gotta buy the whole headlamp assembly...$300. BS! A little bit a wire and duct tape and it works great again, at least until I hit something a little more substantial and insurance can cover the replacement.
But seriously, what's the deal? I know these parts are probably sitting on an assembly line somewhere, or maybe even in a junk yard. How hard could it be to send me one? I'll even throw in a six pack of your favorite beverage...that's just the kinda guy I am.
That reminds me, I need a drink...

Why does uploading of demo samples on CP sucks so? Always have to try and try for about a million times before the file will get uploaded. Unexpected error during upload. One or more files may not have been uploaded.

of course he will, wind power (just ignore those cold winter days when the wind doesnt blow) wave power (enough for a 3 bar fire in at least 5 homes) solar (just dont mention the rare earth metals needed or the polution the mining of them causes or the fact that it would take covering the UK in them to replace 1 power station)

Real stupidity beats artificial intelligence every time.
My elder sister went through a phase in the late 60's and early 70's when she hated anything that involved the police and anything to do with them. I asked her who her first phone call would be too if she got home and found she'd been burgled. Not surprisingly, she too had no answer.
If there is one thing more dangerous than getting between a bear and her cubs it's getting between my wife and her chocolate.
I had a similar phase, being a long haired chap, I long ago discovered that there's f**k all point calling the police for anything. I'm more likely to get arrested than listened to.
For example, a couple of years ago I got knocked off my bicycle. In the heat of the moment I hit the car, causing a (very) minor dent. End result - I got charged for criminal damage, while driver got sod all. That's in spite of having several witnesses who described his driving as dangerous.
