    Definitely not what you're looking for, but continuing on the all right theme

    A bit OT, but does anyone have any recommendations for somewhere to look for second hand speakers/audio gear? / anyone in Edinburgh area looking to get rid of any hifi?

    I think that just depends on the chemicals you use, right? I'm not very knowledgeable about these things, but I remember my father saying that we could do colour, but B&W was more straightforward

    I moved out of my old place a few weeks ago and left several boxes of photo development equipment. My old housemates are all moving out, so this material needs a new home - is anyone interested in (mainly German) photo development equipment - it's pretty much everything you need to set up a home lab.

    It's all completely free, you just need to collect from Leyton sometime in the next week and a half. You will need a car or a full-sized cargo bike.

    More details that I sent through to someone else
    So, my dad and I built a darkroom in my bathroom when I was 17, which I used a couple of times and then went off to uni. My parents moved, ran out of space and its been sitting in my cellar.

    The apparatus is from France, Germany, Switzerland, UK - mix of plug types but it all works together. I've got an enlarger, timer, red light - pretty much everything you need. I also have all the necessary tanks, light proof storage bottles, etc etc.

    I can't guarantee it all works perfectly - It hasn't been used in almost a decade.. but then again, it has been stored safely and most of the equipment is fairly vintage too!

    I have read about cheaper bivis having a bit of seep at the bottom.

    If you're going to use it with a tarp it should be fine, as it is essentially just a wrap around groundsheet. At least with the zips you can regulate the moisture inside a bit so it doesn't get too humid in the bag.

    That doesn't look like it has waterproof zips, which means that water would leak in from the side. The material also doesn't look particularly tough, and might let in moisture from underneath if the ground is damp.

    Letter in the post and on the government gateway site - fairly certain it's legit!

    I just got a rather exciting message from HMRC saying I'm due back some tax money. What's the best value gravel bike around at the moment? I already have a MTB so looking more towards the all road spectrum than monstercross stylee
