    Provisional dibs on this if it's freestanding or works in a freestanding kinda way please!

    We're desperate for a dishwasher and can't fit a full sized one in our pokey crappy kitchen.

    PM'd.

    Unifi Lite access points unless you're feeling very spendy. UAP AC Lite is the best value option (I've got two) or you could get the WiFi 6 Lite if you want something more up-to-date. Last time I looked they were cheapest direct from Ubiquti (currently £97 including shipping) but that was about £30 more than an AC Lite and they are fast enough for me.

    Rock solid when set up properly and adding a controller, Unifi switch and/or router makes it all even more pleasing.

    Actually you'll need a controller if you're running three networks. UAP AP's will run up to four I believe, either buy a Cloud Key or use a Raspberry Pi which is what I'm doing and it works well. I've got mine running a Pi Hole too.

    Shit, I always worry about this happening but have presumed it's pretty unlikely.

    Do you WFH? Must have been an interesting conversation with the boss!

    Do you think the EMP reached the kit via your power cables, the Virgin line or it was just proximity to it?

    Has this been resolved yet?

    I can't believe 7 years after I sold it to you @Cazakstan it's still not finished yet!

    Where are you going to ride it when it is finished?

    The Grange is a famously expensive area of Edinburgh with massive houses. Some of them have turrets and everything! The one the Pope stayed in when he came to Edinburgh is pretty impressive.

    I've seen Fred 'the shred' Goodwin's house in the Grange, very nice. Pretty sure Alistair Darling still lives there. JK Rowling did too I think, unless it was technically in Marchmont. It had a security cabin in the garden but it wasn't secure enough to stop the superfans so she's moved out now.

    I guess my point is these sort of people - and very trad Edinburgh old money - would be your neighbours. The single most popular car thereabouts is a recent Honda Jazz with a personalised registration plate worth way more than the actual car.

    Have you actually gone and spent time in any of these areas you're looking at?

    swimming you example you only need a trunks/costume and a pool

    This is the theory, then you start doing proper swimming training!

    It's not expensive so the point stands about barriers to entry but float/pull buoy/goggles/fins/hand paddles etc. is a right load of crap to carry around :)

    Yep, I just got it as a PDF from the NHS app. Didn't even need it, I was just playing with it.

    List of roads in Walthamstow flooded today, pretty mad. Excuse the font, it came from our street WhatsApp group.

    The lack of dust amazed me

    We had a floor of our place done recently and I couldn't believe how little dust they generated. Ours had some big fancy Festool unit.

    Good work @stevo_com especially with that level of kit, but this is reminding me why although we're doing loads ourselves floor sanding was the one thing I wanted to get people in for based on past experience.
