    I'm going to give it another go.

    Main gripes for me, other than clashing with light apps, are the dark dock and the super contrast white text. Creative Cloud's more subdued text is a lot easier on the eye.

    Only issue I’ve found with Mojave is it breaks Zoom.

    On calls if I maximise the video, I lose the tool bar, so can’t mute, share or leave meeting without messing about with the top menu. Keyboard shortcuts still work though.

    Wanted to like dark mode, but think it’s just ugly. Even more so when half my apps don’t support it.

    Don’t you just push the car a few yards down the road, call the AA and tell them it just happened?

    Yeah, axle was my thought, but didn't know if there was away around the lack of crown mount. Not to mention the 15mm thru-axle.

    I think I may just accept it and start looking for a minimal rear rack and pannier.

    I have an All-City Nature Boy 853 with a Whisky #9 fork. I've been commuting on it, but my backpack is killing me and it's time to get the weight onto the bike. However, I hate the look of rear racks/panniers.

    Ideally I'd like a basket on the front that I could just dump my backpack in and bungee down. Trouble is, the Whisky #9 doesn't have a bolt on the front of the crown (though it does at the rear) and the eyes near the drop outs are described as 'fender mounts', suggesting they may explode with the weight of a rack.

    Should I give up, or are there some decent options I'm unaware of that would allow me to run a basket?

    I still don't get where the £95 shorts are?

    Edit: Too slow...^

    Thank you! The guy will combine shipping from US, so not too steep either. I reckon that should work a treat.

    One for Tester or other engineering types...

    I have a mill with some linear calliper things on each axis and a DRO box, but the cables are shot.

    Every cheap set of digital calipers in the world seems to come with a “data output port” which is what I’m using, but for the life of me I cannot find any cable or loose plug that is designed to fit said port. The DRO side is RJ11 I think.

    Do these cables exist, what should I be Googling? Or do I rip it all out and buy a £250 eBay DRO kit from China?
