Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Dressing off today. Stitches have already dissolved. No bleeding. No infection. Can't swim for another couple of weeks but can shower without wrapping my leg in cling film (which was a distinctly odd experience). 110degrees of movement in the knee - consultant says couldn't be more pleased and that ...

Re: payg data only sim card

Just ordered one of these... https://1nce.com/en/features/ 10euros for 250 SMS/500MB with a 10 time limit to use it. If you use up either SMS or data, it's just another 10euros to refill.

Phyphox - physics from your 'phone

Have a look at Phyphox from Aachen University - it's a free physics app that leverages your 'phone's sensors and emitters - love it!

I've had a bundle of fun getting my own back on the cat...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Walked without crutches today.

Not an elegant gait, you understand - more like the zombie apocalypse. But unassisted walking none-the-less.

10 days post-op now. Seeing the consultant on 27th.

Main thing is I can get across the lawns to the workshop again ....

Re: Nothing In Particular

Perhaps it wasn't the hedge trimmers - could be that the dog is hatching a cunning plan. Can't have been that cunning a plan. The dog is chewed to pieces. £120 quid later after a trip to the vet's, she's a bit perkier having had a load of antibiotics and anti-inflammatories. I do have a time-domain...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Brilliant plan. Don't know why I hadn't thought of it already.

I did try connecting it to a 500,000V Tesla coil to see which hedges weren't glowing in the dark, but that didn't work well. On the upside, we now seem to have far fewer of those pesky sparrows and blue tits about...

Re: 13E1 Valves

So are there any of your 13E1 stash that you're open to selling Nick? If so, let me know the specifics and I'll pass them on to see if the guy in South Africa is interested in buying.
