    Thanks. Though tbh I can't get my head around this but have just scalded my face with hot oil which may be interfering. I'll look it up this eve.

    Cleaning the interior of a computer. In the past I've used canned air but that seems a bit silly. I've also experienced fluid being created from it which freaked me out.

    I've seen usb electric fans recommended to me in adverts this week. Anyone use one? Any good? Any brands to look for?

    Anyone come across Cambro shelving? I suspect this is more a question for hospitality workers as it's for sale on nisbets etc.

    I'm having trouble finding OTP heavy duty shelving to fit a 76cm alcove and no metal fabricators want to touch a single job. Stumbled across Cambro by chance and it's almost exactly the size I'm after (could do with being a few inches taller but I'd take it). It's very spendy compared to metal so wondered if any good / why the plastic tax etc.

    It's very nice. You get given a key to the garden itself and there's also a key for a tunnel that leads from the garden under the road to the beach. We lived a few buildings down on the seafront and our friends still live in this terrace (next to NC but I believe they moved to the states).

    Thanks @Nef @hvsds and @M4xime

    "perhaps just a rub down with sandpaper and couple of coats of satinwood might do the trick?" this appeals the most so far.

    It's a small spare room I'm turning into an office but I've actually, for once, made an effort with prepping and painting the walls so it seems a shame to have crap skirting beneath them.

    I'm also tempted with a new floor of some description - prob just some kind of LVT. Something that can take my weight on as swivel chair 22 hours a day (I'd put a rug/runner down, I'm not a complete monster). If so, shouldn't that go underneath the skirting? Which brings me back to ripping it off and putting on new?

    Rip out shitty skirting and replace with pre-painted replacement or heatgun/sand/prime/paint existing?

    Or just live with shitty skirting.

    "partial" mobilisation.

    Not come across Chop Chop before but will check 'em out, thanks. My presumption with smaller places is that one off jobs would be either not taken on or extremely spendy.

    Any recommendations for custom width metal shelving that can support quite a bit of weight and potentially being climbed up like a ladder by a 5 year old?

    edit: I don't have an angle grinder and worry I wouldn't get a safe/visually decent finish with a hacksaw and file myself.
