Not car related, but been in work for 6 hours now - got a major project going on and trying to compelte a load of testing before tomorrow morning, so far problems we have:

Programming done completely wrong, 2 hours to redo someone elses cock up.
Cabling - half not finished, other half ok (ish)
voicemail - going to wrong server, see programming and add another hour.
system features - see programming - another hour.

And still got loads more functionality to add and test.

I'm glad it's double bubble, but the mrs' is going nuts on the phone every hour at me!

Did you also get hit by the hailstones? It started just as we got back in but only lasted about 5 minutes. Bloody icy cold out there today though!

Nowt's gone wrong (so far) but I've fitted the front leccy window switches that have had the Guardtower multi colour touch. :L I've also finally got round to replacing the double lock microswitch on the drivers lock so I don't have to walk around the car to deadlock it. Put it through a car wash and got depressed as it was dirty again by the time I got home :( .

Oh yeah, and reconnected a loose speaker wire in the back of the head unit so all 4 speakers work again.

Tried to get a power cable through the gromet but that went t1ts up after 5 mins and I just coiled the wire back up again. (maybe next weekend as I've had the amp n bits long enough and want some bass now)

All in all, not that bad of a day.
