    Morning All. Currently dry here at the moment. Ride in skipped due to sore back after showing fitters why sparky,s are superior. More work and hopefully sleep tonight. PS just as an aside to yesterdays shenanigans, both correct. Some larger domestic premises and those with previous retail or industrial connections may have 3phase 415v supplies, but I've not come across many in 40yrs in the trade. Yes I'm getting old.

    Was planning on riding to the office today, but the forecast is looking biblical so giving that a miss.
    It will be sunny once I'm WFH again.

    Sounds sinister when you put it that way.

    Morning All, tempted to lie in a bit longer but had stuff to do. It looks a bit grim outside so happy for Strifey to take the dogs out. That said, the garden could do with a bit of rain.

    Back to the home office (dining table), just fed and watered the pests.
    A successful week-off where i spun out a four hour job to last over a week. Got my 12yr daughter out riding her bike with me. she had never ridden on the road before but after four days is now up to about 8 miles on a ride on her 24" wheeled MTB. Learned how to use a raspberry pi and access it over VNC or something. Built a robot buggy with the raspberry pi zero and my 7yr old boy can control it with his phone over bluetooth. fantastic! Who knew lock-down could be such fun?

    In my house we count this as week 6 of 12, but I'm not sure it will end at 12 weeks.

    WFH, may have a spin on the bike this evening.

    Had the novelty of a site meeting today, these can't be done from home as lasers and stuff are needed to determine sizes.

    Now back at the island in the kitchen doing the rest of it.

    Hopefully will get a ride in later even though its cooling down.

    Late start. Walk/coffee then out for provision shopping. Couple parcels of bike parts arrived, but bad news is the bling carbon seat post is not the size it was advertised. Argh!

    Bled rear brake on new bike. Front to be done tomorrow. Don't want to rush this stuff.

    Otherwise very meh.

    Pleasant, dry ride to the office. Was a bit moist on the way back but small price to pay, and not as biblical as forecast.

    So much traffic on the roads though, more than a normal evening rush hour, not sure what's going on.

    Quit cold out and a bit of rain but tomorrow looks like a wash out.

    Sshhhhh, don't let the locals see you were out for more than an hour. I can see why you like disc brakes though.

    Evening folks,
    Another reasonably busy day of WFH. Not as busy as last week as doing bits and pieces rather than one big project. Now relaxing with TEA, from the Hogsback Brewery which makes it even better than regular tea.
    That's a definite sting in the tail of that ride HD.
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 8,844
    HD, head down before the press start chasing you. My local press is trying to cause anti cyclist propaganda after a few people spotted at cannock on bikes.

    Could I just ask any potential stalkers, can you see the exact start/finish or do the privacy zone settings work?

    Discs, yes.
    Sting in tail, yes but enjoyable yesterday.
    More than one hour, yes.

    edit: yes they do... I logged out and clicked a link so no, you don't know where I live ;)

    Yes we do, within 50 metres or so. Dead easy if you live in the sticks, hard if your in a populated area. I stopped making my rides public after stupid comments by a stalker, just followers can see my rides.

    I did say sorry eventually

    My exclusion zone I miss out on a few KOMs Iā€™m sure I could get šŸ˜¢

  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 8,844
    You should still get kom,s pb,s etc I beleive. It shouldn't show the exact start stop position to others that's all.
