Fer Cork drivers we will get an automated text some day soon telling us the exact time, date and place of where to go fer meter update.
The cost will be about 75Euro and the place will most likely be the Marina by Shandon boat club (same as last time), the date I'm not sure of but possibly Mon the 15th or 22nd of Jan.

Just a note, if anyone needs their meter clock adjusted, then it can be done on the day FOC.

Do yis all use the same installer down there?

The clock is always corrected when it's reprogrammed, hardly FOC when you're handing over 75 notes for 3.5 minutes of the programmer's time.

No, it will be the same bunch of Doob trackies coming down again fer reprogramming,
but at least this time our own (and only I think ?) Cork meter installer 'Eugene' will be part
of the crew on the day.

My Hale meter clock loses about a minute and a half per year, If'n ya ask em nicely then
they will set the clock forward by a few minutes.

I thought it was Thirty the last time ?  but Eugene informed/reminded me this morning that it had been Fifty last time.
This time around it will be about 75Euro.

The installers get about a Score per cab, Legal Meterology and the NTA share the remainder of the Spoils !

That's grand...there's four adaptors wearing Bermudas, pork-pie hats and tank-tops they can plug into on the 17th.

I was gonna say that with the Orphelia Compo money that you might trade up to a new Merc,
but at your stage of Life, it's probably the Merc that would be Trading-up on the Driver !
