Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Excellent news and good for you. Towards the end of my time working for a large company, we had quite a debate. The younger engineers would increasingly refuse to take on responsibilities unless the company recognised that and paid them more. I maintained to the day I left that my philosophy at tha...

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

I have a little news. We are still to go live, but it's edging ever closer (yeah I know, I've been saying it for months, but I've got to get it right one of these days surely?), but, I've got a new job. Basically when I started I noticed that there was no buffer, no lieutenant. I felt that there wer...

Re: THIS SITE MAY DISAPPEAR TOMORROW! SORRY!

I have been an absent landlord on here, to the extent of not paying for domain renewel. I just tried to do it now, and I can't. It's very possible cyclingrelated.uk will not work tomorrow, and in the worst case, I may lose the domain permanently. You will still able to access the site using http://...

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

I have seen it said (elsewhere on the interwebs) that there are very few cases of Covid19 "in Africa" because "most Africans are under 21. Only 3 percent are over 60". Anyone feel like picking that apart? I've not sen that stat, and can't help you with unpicking it, although it's very interesting a...

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Brother in law works for PHE. They were told last Friday to ignore the figures being published by the government, that R is a little below 2, and that they and their families should act as if they were in lockdown. How's he finding things at the moment considering the mud that's being slung in thei...

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Although it's not been officially confirmed we will be live by the end of the month, beginning of November. First real indicator for me was when our senior nurse manager, that's been basically in charge of our site since the start, was seconded to cover the three remaining field hospitals on our pat...

Blimey are we all the same age, i was 50 at the end of July.
I was 51 during lockdown, but as far as I'm aware it doesn't count and there's been an extension put on birthdays similar to the one on MOTs, so I think that means I'm still 50.

Be sure to have a washer or two left over, then you can be sure you've put it together properly.

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Things continue to tick along as they were before, but the rumour mill is getting louder and more intense that we will be going live. though not yet for the original purpose. However, as we know, cases are on the up and this thing is still a long way from over. The first Covid related death since Ma...

Re: TV/Streaming shows

The second season was excellent. Different and more developed. Not sure how they could resolve things into a 3rd season though without it getting a bit Scrappy Do. The music was fantastic throughout. I understand why now that I've looked at the history of the comic book. Phew, that's a relief. Thir...
