    Good start!

    I bought a bat detector electronics kit and thought it best to test it where there should be bats.

    Do you get bats by the sea?

    Anyone know of any good spots to observe bats in North London? Closer to Holloway the better please.

    To be fair it's bad form to expand excessively on other's tags.

    Well done for deciphering the clue and all but some of us take a little longer...

    We have a split unit that cools a top floor room under a flat roof from 28ish to 20ish through the day and down to 18 overnight.

    This is our kids bedroom so used daily and makes a hell of a difference to family life

    Googling that phrase brings up some mad returns, and some interesting related searches...

    I suppose that's the intent, but I reject the notion that kids are incapable of paying the attention required for test cricket...

    This just feels like pandering to a modern taste for all the glitz and none of the substance.

    The more I watch it the less I like it. But I like test cricket so it's not for me right?

    RPO makes more sense with more time to go. Runs in balls makes more sense when closer. I suppose it's similar to instantaneous quantities versus averaged ones.

    One thing they've achieved is moving this a long way from how a cricket game usually feels

    Great start to the hundred. Duff loosener down the leg side.
