About 2 weeks ago Time Dilation
It often feels like only a few weeks ago that I first started working on Red Dwarf.
As this picture of the cast taken at a recent convention shows, I am merely experiencing a fluctuation in the time/space continuum. 
'We're not even getting old, we are old, man' is the quote I remember from Mr Charles on seeing this picture.
Old but quite enjoying it.

About 6 weeks ago Here's a happy picture.
Last week Danny John Jules, Chris Barrie and I attended a convention in the Space Centre in Leicester, UK.
Just before we headed home we got to play with some amazing models, and we didn't break any of them.
Should have added the lovely chap on the right is the creator of the models.

About 9 weeks ago It's happened again
My last post, making fun of a an unpleasant man with a long and complex history of business involvement with the oil, coal and gas industries resulted in a sadly typical response from articulate and determined anthropomorphic climate change deniers.  
These are not the statements of some disturbed fundamentalist preacher telling us the planet is 4,000 years old and God gave us the world and women to do with as we wish. 'Drill and burn, oppress and rape, it's all yours baby' sayeth the Lord.
No, these are well informed and clever chaps (they are all chaps) most of whom cling to their one pathetic shred of so called 'evidence' which are the emails leaked from some University in East Anglia. Years ago, utterly and trivially irrelevent. I dismiss such nonsese.
Here's my point.
These individuals, who may or may not be connected with the oil and gas industries (even at arms length, even just politically sympathetic) have a huge fear of governm

About 11 weeks ago Yeah, okay. I accept we were beaten
Two Tesla Model S cars have just driven across the United States from Los Angeles to New York City.
They travelled 3,464.5 miles and took 76 hours, 5 minutes. 
That's just over 3 days.
They drove through blizzards, sand storms and thick fog, refueling using Tesla's 'superchargers.' which, as seems to annoy Daily Mail readers, are all free to use for ever according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
That kind of beats David Peilow and my 407 miles in 13 hours using Ecotricity and Charge Your Car rapid chargers, also free to use, at the moment.
That's a sop to any passing Daily Mail reader.

About 3 weeks ago Tesla Model S 85 performance plus | Fully Charged

My first experience driving the hair raising, breathtaking, game changing car from Tesla Motors. During high speed cornering some profanities were expressed but I've beeped them. I apologise in advance.

About 12 weeks ago London to Edinburgh. Quick Update
We left Marble Arch at 6:30 this morning. I drove the 1st leg, 57 miles to Newport Pagnell, I was driving like a 90 year old vicar so it took a while.
We charged for 30 minutes, had  coffee.
Then David Peilow, my highly skilled co-driver took over and hammered it to the next Charge point, Leicester Forest East, where I'm writing this.
We've done over 100 miles and it's 9:27 am.
The reason we are bothering?

About 12 weeks ago London to Edinburgh. Mainly Mundane
On Friday 24th Jan (average UK temp 3c) David Peilow and I drove a Mark 2 Nissan Leaf from Marble Arch London, England to Edinburgh Castle, Scotland in fractionally over 13 hours.
We had the heater on all the way, we drove at motorway speeds all the way (obviously we were constantly being overtaken by white vans travelling at 90+ mph) and never for one moment did we have 'range anxiety.'
We had planned the route, we always had a 25 -30 mile 'buffer' of extra range on the chance of a rapid charger being out of service.
So at this point I want to take my hat off to Ecotricity and Charge your Car because every single charger we used was 100% reliable. Not one teeny tiny hiccup.
David used an app called Leafspy which talks to the car by Bluetooth and gives very accurate, minute by minute data of energy use, battery temperature and estimated range etc.
Our total mileage was 407 miles.  The charge stops were as follows and at each one

About 14 weeks ago It's just bribery... sorry, sorry, economics.
What possible reason could there be for Cameron and Osborne to be so keen to frack up the UK?
