    Dibs on the Polar if you're willing to post at my expense, plus a little extra for the hassle? Will send a DM.

    Would never buy anything CDA. Fridge freezer from them and the freezer stopped working in warranty. CDA said they no longer made the part needed to fix. Their genuine offer to me to make it right was 40% off a brand new one.

    I was able to get staff discount on this one. Amazon currently has them in the colour "sage" at a good price - £287, and it looks like every so often they come up on warehouse deals. I often use the Keepa site for price tracking and sending notifications once something like this hits a certain price on Amazon.

    Off the strength of recommendations on this thread, I've ordered a Pixel 6a, as I managed to get a new one for £258. I'm a little worried about no headphone jack and no expandable memory, likely for no good reason at all, so let's see how it goes!

    I should hopefully get around £50 trading in my old Galaxy S8 as well, so cost to change of about £220 once you factor in a case and screen protectors. I'm pretty pleased with that given the cost of a flagship phone these days.

    Yeah sorry you're right. I don't know why I was disoriented in my head. I'll try and get some time off work and get up there before sunset in the next few weeks in that case. It must be such a lovely sight to see!

    Oh interesting, where did you go? When we moved up here we heard the starling murmurations were great, but 2 years ago went up to the marsh just north of the British Flurospar quarry and saw absolute diddly squat around Christmas time

    I use dwMap on a different Garmin watch (forerunner 235) and I'm a big fan of the free version. It's just a breadcrumb trail rather than an actual map, but I've found it good enough to navigate fairly complicated trail runs that I've not done before. I've also used it when walking in a different country where I don't want pay for data on my phone to use that as a tracker.

    At complicated junctions you'll sometimes end up going the wrong way, but it's easy to spot that pretty quickly.

    Give it a go for sure, it's free after all.

    And the bit at the end of the article. We asked twitter for their comment, but they fired all the PR people so there's no one in that type of role any more. ROFL

    Anyone got a recommendation for a room divider for a home office? My wife will be going back to working remotely before long, and I'm full time remote as well. The room we use as a home office has enough space for us both, but we sit back back to back so would like a divider to reduce noise from each other's conferences, plus also give a bit of privacy when we're both on camera.

    I'm sure I'm being really stupid, but where on GCN are the highlights of cross races? I can only ever find the full races. They're not that long so generally do watch, but would love to watch quick highlights sometimes when time is tight.
