    on the wireless router that would be exclusively for the hue? I'm including a wireless router as part of the setup - the app would connect to that router, it would just no longer be connected to the internet.

    ok, I'm not totally up on all this stuff, so sorry if this is a stupid question -

    Could you theoretically setup the Hue lights with the bridge / hub with your broadband line in connection at one location, then physically move them to a second location? (once setup)

    Whereas LIFX you couldn't because it's requiring the network to carry the info, rather than a bridge?

    Hue doesn't require internet access does it? I thought it built its own network just using the Router for distribution? Could you use a separate wireless router altogether? I'm not certain but I'm sure I have used a similar setup in live audio In ear monitoring?

    Sorry if this is way too specific...

    I'm trying to connect some LIFX bulbs at work. The IT dept. are a little snowed under and their IOT wifi doesn't seem to actually have any internet connection, so I'm having trouble setting them up.

    Is there any way that I can get them to work on the staff wifi, which requires a username and password? it's the username portion that I can't seem to give within the LIFX app.

    Faithful rat/ beater. Owned from new. Pre all the omnium comparability issues. So should work with that crankset afaik.

    Comes with:
    Blb 25.4, 80mm stem.
    Inline seatpost. (Pro koryak maybe?)

    Fork is an alpina track, but not original to this frame. was bought with a new frameset maybe 2 years back or so. Never crashed, however, is cut at slammed. Shouldn't be a problem - headtube is super tall.

    Really new izumi track chain with it. A few months use, so should be fine for ages.

    Has been primed and rattlecanned purple sparkle (Halfords/Rust-Oleum from what I remember)

    Plenty of chips to paintwork on frame, no major dents though.

    If needed, I have some drops, and a cobbled together wheelset, random calipers etc so could be a strong start for someone's diy build project.

    No postage. Collection se16 (bermondsey/ London bridge) or elsewhere central London!

    These are about £230 new, so hoping for £130.

    what do you lot do for smart shoes?

    I've gone through a few pairs of pleather new look plastic jobbies in a few months, feel uneasy that they are most likely sweatshop, and even if cheap, they are falling apart too quickly. I'm trying to avoid the fast fashion cycle too.

    I can get away with docs, and they are one of the few shoes that don't fall apart on me, but the vegan ones look very shiney - do they break in well? A few amazon review about how they come apart at the sole too?

    Any other suggestions?

    Hi all, thanks for the suggestions.

    I do like the idea of folding, which is why the opinel appealed, however that chisel blade looks interesting. Originally I had been imagining something not plastic, but actually, given it may frequently get wet maybe that's not a bad idea.

    Thanks again!

    Hi knife fans.

    I need a dedicated small knife for gardening jobs, propegating, cuttings, removing burrs on plastic pots I'm making/ upcycling.

    Would something like the stainless opinel be good for this?
