Re: The Weather Thread.

It is looking awfully cloudy in London 😂 Only a few spots of rain in the end. To be honest its not too bad if it rains immediately after washing. If it rains after a week of collecting pollen it looks like you've dredged it up from the bottom of a lake. I've made clear that the next house has to ha...

Re: The Weather Thread.

I washed both cars this afternoon so from past experience that would put the chance of rain at about 110%

Re: Coronavirus

1/7/2021. Is that date in Sterling or Dollars? Another year out the office seems a bit of an overreaction :lol: That's in old English. Best check with your employer if they mean Ærraliða or Æfteraliða if they're using the Old English calendar as the sixth and seventh month is merged. You don't want...

Re: Coronavirus

I would be barring an hour's commute each way on bus and tube. I'm not keen to expose myself to that number of people right now to be honest. If I could drive in it'd be fine and dandy.

Would be nice to use this as a segue to part home working though to be honest.

Re: Explosion in Beirut

Interesting that people keep referring to it as 'fertiliser'. Seems questionable when you dig even slightly into it...

Re: Big bombs

And yet the scary thing is that Krakatoa was equivalent to 3 Tsar Bombas and then even that was only a VEI 6 compared to Tambora that happened half a century earlier in 1815, a VEI 7 volcanic explosion which led to the 'year without a summer' with millions dying of famine. Scarily these eruptions se...

Re: Gordon Murray T50 Live Launch

I’ve figured out what’s wrong with it proportionally for me. Too much bodywork height over the rear wheels. Makes it look like the front wheels are 2 inches bigger than the rears in the side on shots. I think its something that would look better all in black rather than the silly two tone. It would...

Unbelievable destructive power to produce that sound level so far away. I knew it was coming but it still made me jump.

Re: The DSLR thread

No mine lasted a long time. IIRC the exposures do stay visible even when you turn the dial to the "." position which is effectively off. I expect yours might have an issue. Have you tried using it with a different lens or taking the lens off the body when you're finished with it to check it isn't th...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Had the car idling in the driveway with roof down while I was closing the gate behind me. Small children wandered past and exclaimed “Wow cool!!” which always seems a good reason to own it. Beautiful! Yep - nice comments can certainly make your day. It stops you taking it for granted when someone b...

Re: The Weather Thread.

Walking out of the office was a bit like getting into an oven, but it's dry heat and there's a breeze so it feels really lovely - I'd be happy to have more days like this in summer and less of the high-20s but humid stuffiness we usually get. Yes its all about the humidity. Living in HK it wasn't m...
