    Trip to the quack first thing for 6 month review. Wants me to take pills again, but not anything fun. Apparently I'm broken.

    New (used) lens arrived. It's broken.

    Work sent a few queries today suggesting there are some broken bits in the system for me to figure out.

    Aaaaand the weather is rubbish, howling gale, some rain. Mondays, eh? :x

    Morning. Bright, dry and cool outside. Working today as little as possible. Apprentices will be abused over next few days, basically they're doing my work for me.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Re.: Thread title. I'm worried about your Pineapple and Coffee intake SG.

    Not as broken as WS's Monday. Some things are working. Some aren't.
    However, I did get an actual, real work related call today. I guess someone, somewhere knows I am on the mend. I'll fool myself into thinking that I am indispensable. So i'll go with the latter.

    It's still a bit nippy. At 6.30am, it was clear blue skies and a beautiful sunrise but post piddle, decided to get back into bed with the missus and the cat. He hasn't got up yet. He is turning into a lazy bloke, which is great for local bird and rodent life.

    Thistle can I borrow your pineapple please, I need something to kick at rear end of one lazy apprenty and it's spiky enough to hopefully wake him up. Failing that I may just light him up with a bit of a shock from my test meter 1000v should do it.

    They are in Asda. They had psychedelic cacti too which might be more spiky, as well as some plug in light up ones (250V only).

    Afternoon,

    Thought I would ride in to wake myself up. Work seems to be slightly less manic than last week which is just as well: got my head down and just getting on with stuff for now.

    Think I have a 5 farad capacitor lurking about somewhere, charge it up an it could be fun.

    Forgot the "highlight" of yesterday was the utter brown alert I had wit ha chop saw. it decided to jam up, released the trigger an safety, nope kept going motor making rather angry noises, got smelly very quickly, I legged it, shortly after there was a loud bang as the motor sharted itself. 10/10 would not recommend doing that again! Needless to say I did the last little bit of the sawing by hand.

    Matt, wheres this S3 review?

    Afternoon folks,
    Reasonably pleasant wobble in, bit of a headwind unfortunately but I was in no rush so no problem. Busy day in the office as usual, but it helps the time pass. Seem to have developed a bit of a cold which is dull, hopefully it doesn't escalate to something serious like manflu.
    Sounds like a good bit of power tool fun there Step. Getting out of the way sounds like it was the best plan. That reminds me, need to tidy the garage then start taking some of the old man's tools home before the brother in law turns up in the summer.

    I do like my Dewalt circular saw but occassionally, it will jam and kick backwards.
    Still, I have all my fingers.

    @WS: Please send a homing Pigeon to NZ, to my parsimonious brother with a note saying "email me to give me some warning that you are going to call" and... "PS: give me a number so I can call you". Actually scrub that last one - that would cost me. Do they do reverse charge international calls?
