Re: General health matters.

I admit that I've probably done far more long haul flights than 99% of the population, So, my purchase of pistachio nuts pales into insignificance. :) You're missing the point (probably deliberately). There are simpler and cheaper ways of achieving the same result. The first-world's fascination wit...

Re: General health matters.

So, apart from you, we are all fools ? Don't be silly. Of course not. I take it you only purchase anything if it's made in the UK ? We grow a lot of own food and always have done. My wife is from a farming family. And, yes, we buy pretty much everything we can from local producers and again, always...

Re: General health matters.

Ps. There are many cheaper and easier ways of getting the same minerals and vitamins that also don't involve shipping stuff round the world. Prey enlighten us if you may. UK made supplements (if needed) and just eating a balanced diet. Humans have managed pretty well on a sensible diet for millenni...

Re: General health matters.

I used to like snacking on salted peanuts, but now I have "discovered" pistachio nuts (seeds really). Google " health benefits of pistachio nuts " and you may be surprised. They taste nice as well, always an advantage. :D Used to eat them all the time when I was in the Gulf - Iran produces over 50%...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Did a short 61 km yesterday with 500mtrs of ascent - no sun, really cold (4C), icy roads.

Great fun. Was my first time leading a club ride and it seems a good time was had by all...

Re: ISP cap

I don't think Zoom is the culprit. QUIC is an experimental protocol from Google - every time you connect to a Google server, e.g. via Chrome, it tries to use QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connection). Zoom uses encrypted UDP and TLS over TCP, i.e. pretty vanilla stuff. I didn't think anyone else used it ...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

I don't post my rides any more, but SWMBO and I did a short 30-miler yesterday in just fantastic conditions - lovely day for a ride. Whilst we were doing that, #2 son & some friends did an impromptu half-marathon round some of the same route, plus #1 son did a 138km ride from Central London down int...
