This site contains many links to other sites. Although I make every effort to monitor my links and keep them up to date, I cannot control the contents of sites that I've linked to. A link from this site is not an endorsement of the linked-to site, nor does it signify my approval/knowledge of the contents of that site. If you notice that a link is inappropriately labelled, misleading or irrelevant, then please inform me via the 'Broken Link' facility on the links page, and I will investigate as soon as possible.

Copyright: Images
This site also contains many freely available images, which have been obtained from multiple sites around the web. Copyright and ownership of these images is impossible to determine; therefore the images are displayed on the assumption that permission has been given and that they are part of the public domain. If this is not the case, then please inform me of your claim to ownership of an image and I will remove the image from my pages, if you wish.

More Legal Bull:
Blah, blah, blah, waffle, waffle, waffle, legal jargon that no-one reads and doesn't mean anything anyway; you still get sued, blah, blah. Of course, I don't take any responsibility for the actions of those who read this.
I assume no responsibility for loss, injury or death, of either yourself (or others!) while attempting to build/use any of the projects or ideas mentioned on my site. The same goes for loss or damage due to running code downloaded from this site (though I do check my files regularly for viruses etc.)

Safety:
Your safety is of course, your concern but please be careful and exercise due caution. Common senses will tell you whether to attempt something or not. If you buy a MIG welder through the post like I did, you'd better read the operating instructions/cautions. Also remember that as shorting out a traction battery can cause a rather spectacular explosion. Follow some simple advice I picked up from the EV guys in the US - Tape your wrenches! Ensure that the spanner that you use to tighten your battery terminals with has one end sheathed in insulation tape!
When working on a Prius, as a minimum - remove the orange Service Plug and place it in your pocket. Rubber gloves are a good idea too. Review and follow the guidelines published by Toyota for their technicians.
