    Adjustability.

    I also have a 5000K bulb in mine which is good when I need to focus on some paper on my desk. Much easier to read with that than a warm (~3200K) bulb.

    Did 1k in total. Didn't die. 6 x 100m sets (eagerly started out at 1:38 but that soon dropped to 1:50 for the rest of the session) and a couple of 200m efforts just to pile on the discomfort on top of the lack of swim fitness.

    Only 3 others in the lane at most, the pre-9am sessions are long booked up but the ones during the day are sparsely booked. Which is nice.

    Have more sessions booked for the rest of the week. Aiming to squeeze in 20k in the remains of April by doing 1600m each weekday.

    I'm a long way off a CSS of 1:30.

    Nice. I see the Tertial is becoming the lamp of choice for under £10.

    I'm almost there. Work laptop has gone, monitor is mounted on a stand, but with Mrs GB using the desk a lot more I need to move my laptop back and forth and moving the power cable is annoying. Luckily a spare power cable is only £15 or so, so I can get one to dedicate to the underside of the desk.

    Will I be able to get it back together again?

    I did. OK, so the trackpad doesn't work, but that's because I didn't get the fiddly header connected properly, but everything else works and the laptop is so much faster with an SSD compared to the old HDD. MiniGB prefers a separate mouse anyway, so she's happy with it (and I get my laptop back).

    Taking "Goodnight Sweet Prince" a bit too literally?

    All of the links that say "He's still alive!" are actually "He's dead" once you click on them.
