    Yeah got one in our house. I think it's been here since the house was built 11ish years ago. It works fine, even better now I've replaced the door hinges.

    Equally £6k is a lot to cough up for works that seem essential (on top of the other house moving costs) but then the sellers' attitude will be we have lived there and it's fine so why should we pay for this work.

    It's all negotiable until you have exchanged contracts. Sometimes a buyer will essentially be saying to the seller, my offer of X was based on certain assumptions including that no (or minimal) work needed to be done, now that we've had a survey we can no longer afford X because we need to spend Y on the work so we can now only offer Z (often being X-Y as a starting point).

    It depends how much the estate agent is on your side, how much the sellers need to achieve a certain price, and whether you're willing to play hardball. We negotiated on our purchase and the agent phrased it to the sellers as "the absolute max they can afford to spend is X" which wasn't exactly true, but it worked.

    Yeah agreed (a) the bike looks lush and (b) the 'wiggling' is probably down to positioning and weight balance. I've only experienced it when riding with fully loaded panniers on the rear which I assumed meant the front wheel was being unweighted.

    Maybe get a really heavy front wheel?

    'Ard Rock - who's done it? Would be interested to hear people's experiences.

    Only tickets remaining at the moment are for the Epic, which sounds like quite a challenge.

    That jumping photo is amazing. Nice wall colour too.

    Thanks, no need, I'll give it a go when I get time. I was looking for a way to clear space on the SD card before we go on holiday at 4am tomorrow, but decided to just buy a new SD card.

    Chromebook query (they run on android, right?). Does anyone know if I'd be able to plug a USB external hard drive into my chromebook, and also plug in a camera with loads of photos, and shift the photos straight from the camera, through the chromebook, onto the external hard drive? I don't think the chromebook's own internal hard drive would have enough space.

    "Price on application" - strange policy.
