The Dyson Vacuum Cleaner Forums Newsletter – Autumn 2011

Hello Dyson Enthusiast,

As a member of the unofficial Dyson Forums, we just wanted to take an opportunity to bring you up to date with a few happenings, a few special offers and a handful of other things that may be of interest to you.

Do you have a Dyson repair shop in the US or Australia? If so, you are welcome to place an informational post about yourself in the “Worldwide Dyson Resources” section. Use where you are in the title. For example: “Jackson’s Dyson Repairs in Idaho.” All we ask in return is that you look around our forums and answer a few questions when you can.

Can you help out our new member Lawrie7062? He has a problem with his DC14. The topic is here: My DC14 “backfiring”.

Those in the UK have likely never have seen a DC04/DC07/DC14 brush roll and belt removal tool. We are the sole UK stockists of these tools. You can see a tutorial and read all about them here: Dyson Belt & Brush Bar Removal Tool (Belt Lifter Tool) Tutorial.

Do you own a DC07? Our member Angus Black has released a Dyson DC07 workshop manual. It is only available in paperback, and you can get one directly from his site here: The Unofficial Dyson DC07 Workshop Manual.

Do you have a favourite Dyson? Did you vote in our poll? Here is the link: Poll — Which is your favourite Dyson? Vote Now! Up to now, the DC07 is in the lead with 32.5% of votes. If you havent voted already, we want your vote!

And last but not least, we work quite hard to make sure people can find us on Google. But we like to know how you found us originally. Was it a link from another site? Was it from Google? Was it from an email or a recommendation? Tell us. Here is the topic: New Members – How did you find us?

Thanks for reading. You are receiving this newsletter as a member of the Dyson Forums. Don’t worry, you wont be getting three a week; nor will your details be passed to any other organisation or entity. But, we would love to see you as an active partcipant on our forums. Why not drop by and say hello?

Regards,
The Dyson Forum – Dyson Advice – Dyson Discussion Board – Dyson Talk Team.

Dyson DC07 Maintenance Guide – Service Book – Workshop Manual

Are you looking for a Dyson DC07 workshop manual? Until recently, nobody had published a DC07 service book – now they have. The Unofficial Dyson DC07 Workshop Manual is available only in paperback – there is no “e-book”.

The author, Angus Black, shares his own thirty years of experience repairing vacuum cleaners. He shares little-known trade secrets about the Dyson DC07, together with where to source trade-only tools.

“The author has created something which genuinely offers the ‘inside scoop.’ It is an absolute must-read for anyone seeking a DC07 maintenance guide,” wrote David Myers, a technician at Manchester Vacs, an independent Dyson specialist.

For anyone seeking a DC07 service manual, there is really only one choice.

The book corrects common misperceptions and enlightens people about Dyson DC07 maintenance and repairs. All the most popular repairs are explored with candor and common sense. There are many illustrations throughout the book, and best of all is the comprehensive DC07 motor replacement guide.

UK and American model Dyson DC07’s are catered for, with differences between the models highlighted throughout.

The final chapters offer practical advice on sourcing parts and machines. Why parts from eBay might not be as good a deal as you imagine and access to on-line resources like video how-to guides and specialist Dyson sites.

The Unofficial Dyson DC07 Workshop Manual is available anywhere in the world direct from this page: Dyson DC07 Workshop Manual Continue reading

DPD Geopost Telephone Numbers

Looking for a local number for DPD Geopost? Here they are:

Delivery firm DPD is doing very nicely, judging by its latest accounts says the Daily Mirror.

It’s owned by Geopost UK (ultimate parent company is La Poste in France), which last year made a £34million profit, £20m was trousered by shareholders, and the top director got £465,000

dateritme.ru – More Russian Dating Scammers and Spammers

I get a lot of spam. Predictably much of it Russian bride related. However, these clowns are spamming one of our site addresses.

Not just the odd one either. I am getting several a day from all different addresses. But they all point to the same site: dateritme.ru

So, it narked me off deleting this crap (which passes the spam filters incidentally) and I spent 5 minutes researching them.

Here is another one I got just now:

Hello dear, do you remember how we communicated with you? Long ago you could not see, I am Marina – with Russia, do you remember me? “Come to my page – let’s talk, I’m waiting!
dateritme.ru

Rocket science it isn’t. But, it is worth noting for the benefit of Googlers.

So here is the data:

Header Analysis Quick Report
Originating IP: 81.3.27.99
Originating ISP: Hostway Deutschland GmbH
City: n/a
Country of Origin: Germany

It appears to come from Germany, but in there also is this IP in the headers: 46.100.166.212 which originates in Iran. Neither IP shows a city, so I am thinking they are likely just spamming proxies.

The reply email address is: allison.lewin@keller-verlag.de – again German. The domain keller-verlag.de traces to this:

The domain dateritme.ru only gives us this:

nserver: ns1.reg.ru.
nserver: ns2.reg.ru.
state: REGISTERED, DELEGATED, UNVERIFIED

e-mail: audrawajmi@mail.com
registrar: REGRU-REG-RIPN
created: 2011.10.15

That is a commercial site pretending to be a private individual.

The site dateritme.ru is hosted in Turkey at 31.210.103.7

The name “audrawajmi” doesn’t sound either Russian or German. Turkish or Iranian? Maybe. So dateritme.ru is a Russian domain, with the owners ID falsely withheld, hosted in Turkey, likely operated from Germany by Turks or Iranians.

Not the best place to seek out a Russian wife methinks! Continue reading
