Fs hq

Just a few notes about FS HQ in general.

The key for the generator is now stored in the tupperware box that contains tea/sugar/coffee etc. This can be found on the shelving unit beside Yellow. I'd prefer if it was kept there when we're not there as there's quite a few people moving round that end of the site in the week and the generator isn't ours and is worth far more than all the cars put together

Access has to be kept clear for the grit piles and the area where the paving stones and fence posts are stored. Apparently these may be required at any time



Oh yeah, the battery for the generator is charged again and good to go. Can we remember to switch off the ignition rather than just cutting the fuel as that's what flattens it. Dunno if it was us or Donnie but just in case...

Won't know who's on until I get to work tomorrow. If you don't hear from me it's Kevin.

Generator is easy, flick fuel switch and turn key - or is it the other way round lol. To switch off cut the fuel and then switch ignition off. I can pop out if you're really stuck

Unfortunately on Friday night we encountered a problem with the new system of accessing FS HQ and that was an extra gate that gets locked after 6 pm in the evening and at the weekends. This means the gate/clicker system is only viable in the week and as there can't be any full on fix-it meets then we are going back to having to go through the barrier and drive up through campus.

It's a shame as it would have been very handy to come and go easily at weekends. I'm working on coming up with a solution but until then it's back to how it was before which means me hanging round the gatehouse and authorising people getting through the barrier.

FYI..

We now have a functional toilet at the shed... I have some strategically placed buckets around the shed collecting rainwater so we can fill the sistern and flush..

No need to thank me... I have benefited more than others with this lol

I wondered who'd put the buckets under the water features...

I'm just glad you didn't take the picture you described to us all when you returned [attachment=1:2p0yc39a]speechless-smiley-040.gif[/attachment:2p0yc39a]

The shed isn't the only place with an internal water feature when it rains. This is one of the rooms in our building that sprung several leaks during yesterday's downpour



The scary thing is up until a month or so the room contained the NMR Spectrometer that was maintained under pressure, with a superconducting magnet that needed to be cooled with liquid helium and the room was out of bounds to almost all staff but a select few.

This is why they're building us a new place and kicking us out of here :laugh:

Yo folks! I bumped into Donnie our groundsman this morning and he asked what we were doing about the shed. he advised that we clear it sooner rather than later so that we/I don't fall foul of our site manager. I'm happy to do this anytime including mid week as it's quieter now at work and I can take holidays freely. Apart from Thursday 25th of September and Monday 29th I'm completely flexible. Can everyone else let me know when you can make it and I'll try and organise a day for it to be done

@Stuart, Donnie says if you're not selling the engine you have in there it can go in the metal skip on campus but only if it is drained of oil

Oops, Monday's the 29th not the 30th

Let's say Tuesday the 30th and get it out of the way

So folks, say about 10:30 at the shed? I'll pick up the clicker and if you text me when you arrive I'll let you through
