    Thanks, good to know that it can come and go like that. I was wondering whether it could be linked to the stress from moving house.

    If you have a vise and a hammer it's not that hard to mod them. The 'Point' ones are quite thick steel though.

    If you're using a bike you car about you'll want a towel to protect your headset / toptube from your sweat.
    I find using the Zwift companion app on your phone is the easiest way to control things in game rather than trying to use a mouse on your computer.

    I had a similar experience last night. iPhone 8 went from 25% to 0 over a 1hr ski tour with Strava running. It was in a thigh pocket behind some gloves. I think if you are going to be using it regularly then only option is to get a newer model with better battery life in general or as you say, keep it hooked up to an external battery.

    That's good to hear thank you. The vet seemed to think similar, no reason for the seizures not to completely go away with the right medication.
    My main concern, other than the health of our cat, is how to reliably give her medication twice a day, 30 mins before eating, and without the other cat interfering. Although they do get fed twice a day, our lifestyle at the moment doesn't mean that we are at home every weekend or can stick to a regular 12hr feeding schedule. At the moment we can leave them with the automatic feeders when we're away for a few nights, but the new routine would complicate things somewhat.
    I hope that we can find a reliable person in the village to take care of them when we're away for longer or more predictable periods.

    Does anyone here have experience with epilepsy? One of ours has now had two seizures in a month and blood tests have eliminated any other cause. She's 4, so the vet doesn't think the chances of it being tumor related are likely at all.
    She's been prescribed Pexion, which is designed for dogs but apparently has had really good results in cats too.
    We have mixed emotions because obviously we are hopeful that the medication could prevent her seizures, but also committing to twice daily medication given 30 mins before food on an indefinite prescription is quite daunting.
    I'm not sure what I'm hoping for in response, but if anyone has any experience or advise to offer I'd be glad to hear it.

    ...and the local tourism website has some very enthusiastic copy writers.

    To add to the the epic WTF-ness: it’s not uncommon to see people roller skiing up Furka pass. The Rhone valley is a really popular area for it in Switzerland. I assume they get the bus back down, or maybe run. But i’d love to see someone giving alpine switchbacks a go on roller skis.

    Can you put some kind of deterrent to stop him wanting to come upstairs? Some pheremone thing or put a tray of water by the door to make it more difficult to scratch?
    Our responded quite well to a spray bottle when they kept jumping on the door handles.
