It took around eight hours, in the end.

There's going to be some disappointed people on Christmas Day, when they turn on their ps pro and so do 100000 other people and they all try to download 318GB from Sony's servers at the same time.

That's not from Sony, that's from my other PS4, which it was plugged into with a chunk of cable.

The element has gone on my oven. Last time this happened, I paid a man £60 odd to fix it. This time, I've ordered the element for £31 and I'm going to do it myself.

Join me tomorrow for the thrilling conclusion of this epic tale.

Shouldn't the element already have those attached? I don't think the man that fixed it last time needed any but nevertheless, I shall investigate when the element turns up tomorrow.

No, the oven will have them attached, but they're often thin and rubbish and break.

If I wanted to re-seal the bath, how long do I need to leave the water in?

Got the man coming tomorrow at 2:30 to take pics of the house. If I removed and re-sealed tonight would I be able to empty the bath before his arrival tomorrow?

You can get faster curing sealant. I tend to use CT1 rather than silicone nowadays. It's more expensive, but much easier to work with than silicone and cures much faster. Get yourself some wonder wipes as well; they're excellent at getting sealant off your hands.

Good to know! Our bath seems to have been caulked or grouted rather than siliconed, and it's relentlessly flaking out.

CT1 is amazing stuff. It’s actually an adhesive first, but works much better than silicone as a sealant and will even cure underwater. It’s a damned impressive adhesive as well — I’ve successfully stuck a ceramic hand basin to a tiled wall. It’s that kind of impressive.

I know. I use loads of the stuff, mainly as an adhesive, but have used it many times to seal fittings in bathrooms, glue up aqua panels, etc. It's a proper game changer and is incredibly useful. I had to remove a bottle trap on one of our sinks (as they're shit and block very easily) and the new p trap was 6mm narrower in diameter so I needed a gasket to insert it into the waste pipe in the wall. Could I get a step down rubber gasket from any of the nearby hardware stores. Nope. I used CT1. 4 hours later I had a watertight seal which was hidden behind a fascia ring.

The oven is fixed! The new element looks better than the old one anyway so maybe the guy who fitted it used the Mad Catz equivalent element? Who knows.

I had a tiny issue with the screws but nothing that couldn't be fixed with my drawer of assorted screws from the garage. I'm pleased with that. Saved myself £60ish.
