The internet said this, so it might not be true, however...

...car fuses that are red are always live, and those that are yellow are ignition switched. Allegedly.

That's a colour code in some manufacturer's *wiring*, thobut.

I had a this year's model golf. To change the 12v accessory socket from ignition switched to always live I moved the yellow fuse from position A to position B. It stayed yellow.

How MPLS actually works. I kind of new in a hazy way form a using MPLS services from a service provider way but now I need to build an actual MPLS network as a corporate core to transport L3VPNs so needed to get it straight in my head exactly how the guts of the thing worked.  If anyones interested its all about the loopback IPs.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Unless the car is Italian, when it's inevitably a trap.

*recalls the Fiat Of The Apocalypse's wiggly-waggly fuel gauge that told you you were turning left, and the little green arrow that denoted going round a roundabout too quickly*

I'd agree with that assessment.

Can we add "stupid interchangeable card-edge-connectors" to that list of things that automotive wiring diagrams don't warn you about?

Jeffing is a thing that can be discussed in mixed company. Apparently it’s a name used for interval training, eg run for 5 minutes, walk for 3 minutes, repeat. It is named for Jeff Galloway who apparently founded* the technique.

* I would have said formalised the technique. I used to tall it lamp posting, in that I’d run to the next lamppost then walk to the next one, but this was when I was a yoof.

look up fartlek training
fartlek is more than that. It is mixed pace, so jog, sprint, walk, jog for medium distance, run hard medium distance, sprint, jog, walk. Generally over mixed terrain.
Does for runners what riding yorkshire hills does for cyclists, alternately forcing you into anaerobic intensity, then recovering while in aerobic zone.

Yes, I know what fartlek is, just suggesting it to Beardy as a point of interest.  It can be a very useful tool.
And it’s something I’m very interested in having read about it. Once I get my fitness to a reasonable level again, I’m going to head off the paved roads and into the ‘wilderness’. This sort of mixed intensity running will be a natural fit for trail and wild running me thinks.
