    Got a heating question on behalf of my sister. Her house doesn't have gas, only electric. She needs new heating in her house and is torn between underfloor heating and electric wall heaters.
    Her floor isn't solid, so presumably that rules out tiles. Can underfloor heating work effectively with engineered wood?
    Are there any good electric wall heaters in existence? In my experience they're all pretty inefficient and ugly.
    Any and all advice would be valued; she needs to make a decision sharpish because a new kitchen's going in and her husband is driving her mad with indecisiveness.

    Vulpine failed because they overestimated their market whilst getting their ordering massively wrong.
    They had £250k in stock, according to the administrators. I'm not sure if that included the 2000 unsold and contractually unsellable Hoy Vulpine t-shorts...
    Apparently they were trying to get £50k for the company. That's pretty much chump change - if you've got the infrastructure already, you can probably make that back from existing the stock. Anything else on top of that is a bonus.

    It won't, not directly anyway - but you can well imagine this will push some people towards the right wing and authoritarian parties. We could see a small UKIP bounce, perhaps.
    Hopefully the focus goes from this horrific attack back onto issues of social care etc back on the campaign trail.

    Oh yeah? It's ok for the tape to go up the side a bit then? Will try it.

    Wow, I got them to pop using a track pump.... admittedly it did take a while.

    I've not found that tape in 21mm, annoyingly. 19mm is a smidge too narrow, 25 is waaay too wide for road/CX.

    Apparently there's 2000 unsold Hoy Vulpine T-shirts. Unsellable due to the contract termination.
    I also imagine there's about 6974968348934589745 unsold Harringtons in XXS and XXXXL.

    Yeah, enough internet weirdness for today. My apologies for my part in it.

    You're also not shit, which does elevate you somewhat above this thread.
