Either way, it's a lovely thing. Don't often see bellows pipes either.

Re: The All New Megathread

I do love a walk in the countryside when the earth is hard as iron. You just have to avoid the boggy bits that only have a thin frosty crust on top ...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Because of the hundreds of millions invested in the Horizon system, and Fujitsu engineers (who developed it) refusing to admit there were serious flaws, because then they wouldn't get paid.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

First snow of the season here: a light dusting of the fields etc. It's already melting, though.

Re: The All New Megathread

Hope it continues to improve. Just back from a walk over the frosty fields nearby, under a cloudless blue sky. My pineal gland feels thoroughly stimulated :)

If it was a few degrees warmer...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Bloody awful SV 'mudguards.' Roads were wet for 10 miles out of my 90-odd mile ride today and the bike was plastered with crud afterwards.

It's at times like this I think of Seeker's Biggest...

Re: The All New Megathread

Morning Gary. Frosty and freezing cold this morning around here. I gave up yesterday (dry, 12 celsius) for a visit to the mother-in-law. That makes me practically a saint, right?

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

I lived in Denmark for many years, where the electoral system is a form of PR. It works. Of course it isn't perfect, but it does ensure no single party gets a mandate to do what the f**k it likes...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

The words of Nye Bevan ring ever more true:

"What is Toryism but organised spivvery?"

"So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin."

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Nope, we rang round a few places and the best we could find was replacement one day earlier than the Autoglass appointment, at double the cost ... there so many different windscreen variants now...

Some f*ck*ng scrote smashed my lad's car windscreen on our drive around 11pm last night, currently trying to get a replacement screen sorted quicker than the 5 days Autoglass is quoting.

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

I'm not good with electrickery but I think that's a very wise thing to check, just in case a component somewhere is being heat- or load-sensitive.
