Re: Computer Chairs?

Looking at new chairs in the office today (at work). Apparently we have a budget of 'under £100'. Yeah, cheers CEO, we only spend 8 hours a fucking day in them.... Current chairs were all cheap a few years ago, and are all rapidly approaching being knackered, and half the office has been getting ba...

I had a Girvin suspension stem on my first half decent bike. Along with Campagnolo grip shift. All fucking hateful!

Re: Bicyclist thread

That looks quite smart! I've only ridden a few 27.5 and a few 29 bikes, it was a long hiatus before that and everything was 26" back then. The good 27.5 was a Santa Cruz Nomad and it felt a lot more flickable and playful than my 29" but I've never really known how much of that is the Nomad being an ...

The chances of that happening! :lol:

To be honest, I'd quite like to do it in an MX5 or something like that. Basic driver thrills. But you know, you can't hire anything like that from anywhere.

Re: Driving in Scotland

Hire a caterham Like Marv did. And yes secret road access is very tightly governed. I suspect given everything else on the trip, cost might be prohibitive on that, plus I'm 6ft 4ins - I haven't seen a Caterham yet I fit in. Fucking love the idea though... When you thinking of being up there Dave? <...

Driving in Scotland

Also on my hit-list while back in the UK is revisiting Scotland. I didn't get to go back when I last returned in 2013 so it's been 10 years since last been there. Apart from catching up with friends in Glasgow I'm gonna head to Inverness to see another mate, then hopefully do some driving and potent...

Re: Anyone play drums in here?

KiwiDrum knows drums KiwiDrumDad is giving KiwiDrum nice old (semi-mental) drums. To own and to play. Because nice KiwiDrumDad. KiwiDrum doesn’t want KiwiDrumDad to be KiwiDrumlessDad, so wants to replace semi-mental drums with otherdrums - ideally ones with quite cheapness. But KiwiDrum doesn’t kn...

Re: Anyone play drums in here?

It's a combo of early 90's Sonor Hilite and Signature with Istanbul cymbals (pre Agop/Mehmet split)

That'll either mean something or be complete hokum to him :D

Re: Anyone play drums in here?

Budget is whatever it takes to get something reasonable, but without spending heaps, probably 5-700 squids. Background is the old man wants me to take his vintage kit back to NZ when I return to the UK (chance to arrange shipping and sort all that) which is of massive sentimental value to me. Would ...

Anyone play drums in here?

Or anyone in bands with people who do? I have a need to buy either a cheap new drum kit, or a second hand one in decent condition for my old man in the UK when I return later in the year. I've got no real idea what the buying scene is like for them in the UK so before I start trawling Ebay and FB Ma...

Merry Xmas you dodgy old fuckers!

Re: Wireless access points

I've never used the Apple stuff, but we need to have a main wireless router plus some extensions around the house for everywhere to get decent signal. I've been looking at the Synology stuff. Just got to do the wiring for them first, but I reckon that's where my money is going.
