This video clip shows an incredible display – watch it through to the end, the last minute is very impressive. It shows that: 1) The airframe is incredibly light 2) The engine is incredibly powerful (for this frame 3) That’s a pretty damn good pilot!

Ok, so I decided that I finally need to get off my butt and get some serious gut-busting exercise to try and get rid of these extra few inches I’m packing. I’m hoping to start getting up early (0500 maybe?) and run a little before work, as well as doing some weight training in the […]

It’s something past 3 in the morning and for the first time in a while, I’m having trouble sleeping. Mainly because Sean left this afternoon, and it’s odd without him – I can still feel his presence in the house. So having finished reading a cracking good story [Do Over and it’s sequels], I’m sat here […]

My ADSL has been down yesterday and today, so poor Sean has been sat at home doing not-very-much, especially with the weather so wet. So I looked into it yesterday, but got not much farther than “the filter rattles” so I replaced that, and still no joy – my Cisco was showing teh ATM interface […]

I’ve just heard that the cave rescue team have had their Landrover returned to them, more details available in this news article. That’s fantastic news and hopefully the inability to sell the vehicle is going to prove a deterrent for other idiots from trying to steal equipment from other rescue services. In other news, we […]

In discussing an OSPF problem causing a network outage: “Or, possibly, their routers went “Oh, hang on… OSPF means ‘open shortest pint first’” and went down the pub.”

So the BBC have an article up about the CRT’s landrover being stolen. We’ve also had a TV piece made about the break-in that appeared on the regional six o’clock news. Many thanks to the guys at the Beeb for helping with this. I’ve also written to Landrover Owner magazine and Trail magazine to ask […]

West Brecon Cave Rescue Landrover Originally uploaded by aledt. Here’s the photos of the vehicle, registration again is X338 DCY. Again, please contact the police IMMEDIATELY if you spot it. I suspect that with the strength of the SAR community in south Wales, you’ll be drowing in beer if you give the police info that […]

We’ve just had a message distributed accross the pagers – apparently the West Brecon Cave Rescue team’s Landrover has been stolen. What a bunch of bastards. We all, as voluntary 999 organisations spend a huge amount of time asking the public and grant-giving organisations for money in order to support us in saving lives. The […]

I’ve had a few people asking about the area call system, so I’ll just give a quick rundown of it here. One of our biggest problems, being a voluntary organisation, is that people have a Real Job to do when they’re not running over mountains saving lives. Most people have day jobs, so our response […]
