    I have generic (b & q I think) one. Game changer as others said. Only a tenner or so and it’s about 4 years old so easy worth it.

    I owned a 2001 986 2.5 boxter, about ten years old I think, had it a couple of years until genuinely company car forced sale. It was fantastic, every drive was rewarding, made the best “yowl” noise when pushed, but was so well-mannered, comfortable around town etc and not challenging to drive. I did get some mild “poor man’s Porsche” piss taking comments but to be fair, this was an accurate summary. If I had the spare money / space / time etc I would get another, this time in the S.

    I was out walking recently, heard a noise looked up (simultaneously) big old helicopter like this was right over us and low too, like these ones. My point being that this noisy beast had some kind of super-duper sound suppression so that we never heard it until it was right on us. Clever stuff, being able to get that much firepower on top of the baddies without giving them much time to hide / prepare

    I have a simmilar story - I was working for now-defunct Carillion, we were doing a load of new build work on a north london military base. They couldn't / wouldn't provide any ug services drawings for security reasons, so every time the excavators / groundworkers hit a cable or pipe, we had to tell the base, they made everyone go away and their own Royal Engineers teams erect a massive shield around it to hide the action, fixed and / or reburied it but in secret location elsewhere.

    A) The end of the scale, had someone in my car passenger seat for a longish journey, seat was set to my wife's preferred setting - small, and despite me telling him often to adjust to suit himself, he 6ftish kept it how it was and looked all hunched and uncomfortable for the whole 2 horu trip, i found that equally bizarre
    B) unacceptable

    Hi filmy media folk. I’m after some advice for me to offer my son. He’s 19, and studying film and TV at Middlesex uni. He’s got camera operating skills, sound and editing.
    Well I say studying, but what with CV19 and all he’s done nothing but online lectures, which I think has really made it hard for him. (I know it must be same for everyone) He’s a practical person, really hands on, really keen to get on and get his hands on something practical and real.

    When we speak I can tell he’s struggling but being stoic...I’m mainly advocating for staying on in there and hoping the course can properly get going soonish, but also realistically, his other options are to switch course or leave and get a job.

    What would you do?

    Also, any opportunities for any work or experiences that you know of? Cheers
