    Good God SG, you only just made it a new day. Enjoy you trip. Morning, work then meeting up with a few mates for a night ride around local trail centre. Sounds a tad windy outdoors and very dark and damp.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    it's wholly halal as i'm several hours ahead, though at times feels like hundreds of years in the past

    just been out on my terrace for a few rays and contemplating the waves, the lawn extends all the way to the beach, most scenic

  • Morning
    Windy here too, and wet.

    Morning, the wind has just decided to get stronger and stronger , dog already walked a very relaxed day for me colonoscopy tomorrow, so very little food and a litre of moviprep to drink

    Also WFH and got very wet out there running with the dog and shoot lights as the wife had put the good batteries with the ones that need charging :(

    Morning, blowy today wheelie bins at and trampolines will be scattered about later no doubt.

    Day of IT Geekery trying to set up some random applications for things and fudging a VPN to work. Much fun apparently!

    Well the smoke is blowing sideways in The Big Smoke at the moment.

    Currently is dispute with HR, aka RPD (Recruitment Prevention Department) who are currently trying to block us making an offer to a potential minion that matches his current pay in a pretty much identical job because their desk based bench marking exercise 'shows' that the offer is well above the market rate :roll: . Going to send the boys round if they don't back down pretty quickly.

    Is it going to be an epic like that Picolax thread?

    Have you considered Pinno's pop up shop thug hire?

    Bit blowy this morning but it's sunny and reasonably calm now (before tomorrow's deluge). I expect to see Noah.

    Took Mrs P out for her birthday lunch a day early on account of the above.
    She didn't twig the excuse for taking the porker for a spin.

    Problem solved - gave them my best 'T2' stare and made them realise that they really didn't want to take this to the next level up.

    Edwyns Emporium probably is the 7/11.

    sort of - its Edwyn's new off shoot from the Emporium. He wanted to have an empire of Emporii but couldn't find enough buildings palatial enough so has started taking over the world one small stage at a time.

    He thinks the 7/11 moniker will take off and hopefully catch on - snappy marketing on his part I think.

    would have been cooler if you would have converted your arm to a scythe like blade and smashed the place up.

    I'll save it for when implied threats and looking menacing aren't enough.

    he's actually started a new clothing line in readiness for the European elections coming up - "wear plaid for Plaid".

    he reckons it will make him a millionaire.

    Well, if Wales gets independence after the rest of the yookay leaves the Ewho? and then Wales joins the Ewho?, i'm moving to Wales.
    After all, it is the land of my fathers.

    You'll be lucky - Wales voted to leave...your best chance is to stay in Sweatland (it's also minimum safe distance from most of us) :)

    Things are pretty t1ts up there as it stands. After Brexit, it will be even worse. Then they'll beg for mercy.
    Actually, i've just talked myself out of moving to Welshland.

    ba don't do pineapple, another serious failing on their part

    can't wait to get on plane, drink more, zonk out until heathrow

    any good news? not been paying attention, saw may on the news last week, and thought "don't you think she looks tired" (as in dr who reference), though bojo looked even worse, perhaps there's a spooky dorian gray thing going on vs. his better brother

    Little surprise. You would look like that if hell was awaiting you. Tusk underlined the fact. He didn't sketch a plan and the full force of the realisation has hit him.

    T47 is busy fixing yet another annexe just simply to support an array of perfectly angled solar panels.
    Here's a sample of the complexity:

    Today I finished the wall (well I say finished, it still needs a quick render and some paint) bolted the frame to the top of the wall mounted the solar panel on the adjustable frame, set the legs to winter angle (52.5 degrees, I know you would ask) [I wouldn't] ran the cable inside a (convoluted?) conduit around the wall tops and in through the wall (seriously long drill bit) into the studio. I also have summer legs for 13degree angle and I will change over around spring equinox this will maximise output with minimal effort.

    Plugged it into the magic box and voila...power in! I had to try and find things to plug in to reduce the power in the battery to allow the charge in! Tomorrow I will find the biggest wattage items I have and plug them all in at the same time to get the battery down to about 80% just so I can test the output of the panel at different times of day. It will take about 4 hours to charge back up to 100%.lithium likes to be drained by 80% and filled to about 80% in an ideal world.


    Do you understand any of that, 'cos I don't?

    sounds like he's in fine fettle

    sun angle above horizon varies through the year, you must see that up in the far north, maybe next year he'll upgrade to sun tracking panels

    maybe a 4th bubbly to celebrate, just realised this is the thursday thread, but i'm so wasted after umpteen flights to various sandy places with ferocious alcohol prices i can barely say "wibble"

    oooo i think it's soon boarding, may totter off for a spruce up
