Postcode demographic profiling - CheckMyArea.com

Postcode based information for all postcodes free – any UK post code area described

Hmmm, looks pretty interesting, trying to derive one of the 54 standard geodemographic information about the area, based on postcode, credit and other sources.

List of sources mentioned are:
Census
Register of court judgements
Insolvency records
Lifestyle information collected from questionnaires
Credit scores

It makes for some interesting reading, especially what assumptions are made from the census.

BMI Body Mass Index reference chart

I've just come across a quick lookup chart for the BMI (body mass index)

BMI Chart

The traditional way of calculating it is:


English BMI Formula
BMI = ( Weight in Pounds / ( Height in inches x Height in inches ) ) x 703

Metric BMI Formula
BMI = ( Weight in Kilograms / ( Height in Meters x Height in Meters ) )

Skoda Fabia Brake Disc and Brake Pads change


Skoda Fabia Brake disc and pad change.

A recent much needed brake disc and brake pad change, and a dry day gave me the chance for a spot of motor DIY.





Front brake pad comparison

My EBC brake pads from Brakes4u.co.uk

(Ultimax)

New pad (left) vs old pad (right).

These pads were sooo thin, and brittle, they flaked off once removed.
