    Moaning folks,
    In the office again today. I decided I can't hack a five day week just yet so I'm off Wednesday afternoon and Thursday. Girl's birthday Wednesday so we're taking her out. Managed to wobble in today, bit chilly, but not too bad. time to see what fun my customers bring me today.

    only with bloody hr who seem to be on a mission to create as many problems and errors as possible then expect the rest of us to clean up the splatter as that's their process, quis custodiet ipsos custodes etc., nail 'em up i say

    That bike looks normal sized to me, very shiny too. I could ride that, I rather like it. Wouldn't stay that shiny for long though.
    That cat looks severely malnourished though.

    Yes, as a wise old man once said
    Critical mass' is just Pinnorology*. What I am referring to is the point when you consume less energy than you burn.
    *Patent pending.

    At the moment I'm struggling to get much more than one ride in per week and that isn't a particularly long one (48km on Sunday) so thought something needs to be done.

    Lovely bike but the saddle looks quite uncomfortable

    Ladies bike - hence the censored on the saddle.

    A to B.

    We take it as a given. The reality is that there aren't any letters between A and B and it assumes a linear trajectory. This is the inherent flaw in 'A to B'. The other flaw is that you sort of reached B in a less than satisfactory fashion so therefore you didn't go 'A to B' you went from A to... Well, add any number of 4 Scandinavian variants of A.

    Sometimes you know what result you want to achieve but getting there (B) takes far longer and causes more trouble than you expected. Sometimes B isn't acheivable because you're having A F*CKING SH!T DAY and for no other reason.

    The minute I walked into Jewson's, I knew it was going to be a censored day. It was busy and I didn't get the usual cheery, chatty selection. I got Mr Condescension. I reeled off my list of timber requirements and he looked at me with a nodding head as he said "The pressure treated is a a bit rough you know". I thought I might pressure treat his head with a bit of 6 x 2. Which is actually 5.75" x 1.75" 'cos it's 'dressed'. That means I have paid for 1/4" x 1/4" over 20 feet that doesn't exist.

    Meh. To top it off, I have been a snot factory all day and it has a sickly sweet taste to it.

    Oh BTW, that bike is sh!t SG and running is pants.

    Laters.

    Evenin All,

    Bit of a long day but over now, made better hy a bit of plonk. Always interesting to see these retro bikes that look like they've been made out drinking straws :wink:

    You are confusing integers - a subset of real numbers - with the set of real numbers per se. Taking one dimension (and leaving out the unit vector) 6 as an integer can - in the real number line - be anything more than 5.5 and less than 6.5 according to the British Standard for numbers. So its reduced dimension of 5.75 - noting this is described to two decimal points can be between 5.745 and 5.755 - again excluding the end points - curved brackets rather than square brackets - (5.745,5.755) and not [5.745,5.755]. I alert you to an additional danger though which is in the use of a point for decimal separation this is restricted to some places like the UK and Uranus. In Europe, commas are used as the separator.

    I was also interested in your use of the term ' 'cos'' if you had used the homophone 'cause' then it would have added a layer of additional meaning to your devastating theory.
    ...take your pickelf on your holibobs.... :D

    jeez :roll:

    I'll bear that in mind FF. The devastating theory is WIP. I hope to use it to great effect and screw up every guided missile system on the planet and programme them as 'Return to sender' weapons.
