Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

The red and white socks are actually "sticky" (be quiet there at the back Bass!) - they stop your feet sliding on the floor... Did stairs today and being discharged this afternoon. Pain management is ok but they've been injecting anticoagulants into my abdomen, which is ... Interesting... ...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Every two hours for twenty minutes each time I have an ice jacket machine wrapped round my knee which compresses and cools the knee on a 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off cycle. Also been given smart red-n-white "sticky socks" to stop me going a-over-t on the wooden floors... Except they're on...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Glad you're OK Nick. It's going to cost him! More than you might think.... Just heard from the old boy that rammed me... Just to thank me and to tell me that he'd arranged for his daughter's car that we left at the roadside bus stop to be picked up the following day - SWMBO and I had driven past an...

Re: payg data only sim card

They're known as "machine data SIMs" or M2M SIMs.

Re: payg data only sim card

This any good? https://www.giffgaff.com/free-sim-cards The thing with these is there's a hidden "contract" in that you have to renew every month and any unused SMS etc is lost at the end of the period. What I'm after is a one-off payment for a preloaded SIM that can be topped up as needed...

Re: payg data only sim card

My problem exactly. They all want regular payment.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Yes i know. I know you know! It was more a statement of exasperation as it'll mean new motherboards and probably new matching processors and memory for otherwise perfectly good machines. I'll have to have at least one Windows 11 development box. Just a waste of time... There's a huge number of mach...

Re: Quad 405-2 with added Snook

Regarding the holes in the chassis... Maybe just a blanking plate? If you're good with sheet work, you could cut out and patch as per rust repair in car footwell etc.
