  1. Is that the same Porsche that nailed the spa f1 record? Lol at the carousel.
  2. Nursery sent griff home for a 38.3 yesterday and banned for 24h on the hottest day of the year and teething. Ffs common sense please.
  3. Bit of advice please. My 54 Fabian rear passenger door won’t open, the central locking isn’t working on that door. It’s annoying but also not so safe for taking a baby in and out (I have to do it on the road side now). Any good ideas on how to fix, or do I just have do dismantle the door card/fixtures from the inside?
  4. f**k that. I spent the afternoon at the pony and trap eating like the fat middle aged man I am. fantastic.
  5. Is 36h significantly stronger than 32h? edit: dbag, I missed it.
  6. F1

  7. holy shit, does anyone listen to the dollop podcast? The blackwater episode is off the chart cuckoo bananas.
  8. They just have so little power. In the next gen it’s like 250kw for an 800kg car. Given the city hairpin circuit layouts I’d guess that my mates kit car might give them a good run for their money.
  9. Agree - I started watching some the other day. It’s embarrassingly slow, and unnecessarily so. i guess it’s easier to sell to crappy city tracks if they can barely break the speed limits.
  10. Ours get around it by only allowing 30 hours to go to 3 10 hour days... we have 8 hour days...
  11. Yeah we get two grand knocked off from tax-free, but having to pay for bank holidays when they don’t open is a pisstake. as soon as our next mortgage is in place I think Claire is going to drop days at work as we would still get just over 2 grand off through tax credits. I feel like I’d rather be even poorer and one of us had a better life balance. We would be 100% f**ked if we had another. I feel maxed out on effort/energy/money as it is!
  12. Nursery’s. Not only do I have to pay them when he doesn’t need to go in the holidays, I have to pay them when they are f**king closed. Total year1 nearly twelve and a half grand ...
  13. Baby driver was great.
  14. Fixed my airplay headphone amp issues massive win.
  15. Just to check- it’s a parcel you sent yes?
  16. Managed to start the lister st2 generator at my sisters barn project. It’s been left for 2+ years, and all the auto start stuff is boned/flat. Hand crank like a b*****d, wedge throttle with a stick and drop the hammer. Chug chug chug.... pretty cool.
  17. Liam Gallaghers album. The Welsh. (In Cardiff) Dicks at work. Dbags parking on double yellows in a cycle lane.
  18. is that the only film you have ever seen? Mindhorn was a good laugh.
  19. Anyone here using FreeNAS? I’m on 11 but had to do a fresh install after my usb boot disk died. Now I can’t seem to get permissions set properly for smb sharing. Either no access at all for any users, or access for all. I want specific users access to specific shares.
  20. So I'm thinking of building a simple 3 axis cnc machine for a few projects I've got on the go (a project in itself too!). I'm pretty confident on the design and building something that will work. What I'm not too sure about is software and programming. It's mostly going to be for cutting flat sheets of ply/other wood into custom shapes For those that do some of their own or have their own - is there any good free software I should be looking at? And on a scale of 1 (taking a picture and sending it with an iPhone) to 10 (pointers to pointers in C) how hard and time consuming is it to learn to design and program something in?
  21. That guy's videos are pretty cool. Watched his full cnc machine build yesterday. A lot of things came up that I hadn't really considered, and the accuracy of his build seemed pretty spectacular. I'm a bit worried that I'm totally mental, but I'm wanting to build something moderately massive and cut full sheets of ply, and as such the accuracy doesn't need to be as good, but it seems like the hardest part of my build is going to be building a flat enough stiff enough table for the full sheet.
  22. You are bonkers. If the traffic does not have the ability to stop properly, then no matter what the pedestrian does - the traffic is going down. Car, bike, bus, lorry or whatever.
  23. Not if they found the car that hit them didn't have working brakes.
  24. Went to the zoo with manual Nikon 70-200 f4.5 (on canon). Took crap photos. Thought this was ok for through Perspex covered by slimey kid handprints and other nightmares.
