Re: Metal stock supplier...

I totally agree, BUT the custom size was cheaper, which is what confused me. To be fair they say that they will cut to size for no extra charge. No pleasing some people. They cut the C-section beams for my workshop cellar into 3Mtr lengths FOC - I couldn't have moved them otherwise (working on my o...

Metal stock supplier...

I've used them a few times, from small stock to C-section beams and RSJs and they've been excellent, fast and well priced.

Re: General Raspberry Pi stuff

I'm not running Pi-hole in a container yet, but I will be in the next day or so.

I'll try to have a poke around later this afternoon...

My logic is that I'm somewhat heavy and that a few extra grams of rubber is inconsequential.
