Re: OK…so I’m on wi’ summat

I'm not a metallurgist, but I can't see that sort of aluminium work hardening in the short term.

Bending as Steve described won't need any heat.

Re: General health matters.

Perhaps calling it the 7 day bug was a misnomer ?

I bumped into a lady up the road whilst using the local post box.

She told me she had something similar, but after 5 weeks she was still feeling some minor symptoms and the lack of any energy. Time will tell.

Re: General health matters.

7 day bug. I caught it at Potters last week, first noticed slight symptoms last Thursday evening.

It's not C...

Re: Nothing In Particular

I see they are messing with the snooker rules in the Riyadh world masters, by adding another ball, gold coloured, worth 20 points. This gold ball only comes into play if a player gets a 147. Once a 147 is not possible the gold ball is removed from the table.

Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

In New Zealand, EVs used to have no road tax. Now EVs will have to pay a charge per Km. With plug in hybrid vehicle, it now seems they have to pay tax on fuel (for the ICE) and also pay per Km (at a reduced rate) as they are also classed as an EV. Go figure. "From 11.59pm, Sunday 31 March 2024:...

Something I had almost forgotten, but found on Foobar.

Siri's Svale band, Blackbird.

Foobar on office PC, MF B1 integrated amp and home made nearfield monitors. :D

Nice job Ray.

If I was really nit-picking I'd suggest countersinking the front panel screw holes so the fixing head was flush.

Re: Road vehicle fires.

I had not heard of this before, but it seems activists in Germany have for some time, and still are, setting fire to Tesla cars. I don't know the activist groups name, but it seems they have a grudge against Tesla cars in general, and "electric Jesus" (Elon Musk) in particular. There is Gu...
