Did someone forget his flight's booking number that he had to post it all over the forums as a reminder? We're not your agenda!

Some kids just don't know when to stop until it really hurts...
A neighbour's lad is one such. He started his career of pain as baby needing to be cut out of his cot, then running through a fence which he'd been charging at for a few months (that resulted in a stay in hospital while bits of fence panel were dug out of his arms and legs), then there was really life threatening head-butting of the front door glass which broke. A few years of "rest" and he moved onto his latest stunt, playing chicken from behind a parked van - well they could see one way up the road, but the not the other, neither they nor the driver coming from the blind direction had sight of the other party - earned him a broken leg, arm, ribs and internal injuries. Some kids learn to late that stupidity can really hurt.

Sounds like he really wants to win a Darwin Award. You know what they say, practice makes perfect.

<ed added>Kid tried something as stupid this evening at the street corner by my abode. Setup one street on a fairly steep hill, the other level. Traffic signal at the intersection. Add fairly new driver and new to kid car. Toss in a cell phone and invincible. Car coming down the hill at well over the speed limit (unfortunately many do.) Believe you can floor it and make a left turn. Ends with two totaled cars; they hit hard enough both frames bent. Seat belts work because neither car had an airbag deploy, but I'm not convinced they actually had functioning airbags.

<ed2>Bit later while on the way to eat, see idiot stop on the train tacks, blissfully unaware. Lucky, no train. It is a big wide intersection with the tracks at a 45. I think they made a right and then saw the red light for straight through and thought it was for them. Yes the signals are a ways from the corner.

Just some fun, weird things found in the (English) world: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3on5ELf3h8
I like those 2 Chorizo for £3.- but 1 costs just £1.10 and travelling with your rail card costs £13.-, while without it costs just £7.-

That's a major problem with our supermarkets & their special offers.
The times I argued with the cashier to actually put them through as 2 single items, but the "computers" still show them as a special, so often got one cancelled.
My favourite used to be McVities Ginger Nut biscuits. 2 for £3 & individually costing £1.30.

But but but but but but but... those are never special offers! Not when 2 together costs more than 2 single ones.
So? Go into the supermarket, buy one. Go to your car, put it in, return to supermarket and buy the second? At least it'll give you your exercise.

Never had travelling with rail card cost more than without it. Waitrose seems to have software that applies the lowest price when the. "offer" price is more than buying the two (or more often three items with them) separately.

I haven't been getting any for GPUs. I'm thinking of mothballing the GPUs at the end of next month, when the next electricity price hike hits in the UK. That'll free a lot of cores for CPU work, so I might have another look then.
Except when I have testing branch work I am stopping crunching at night. If I get a battery to complement our solar, at that point I will go back to 24 hour a day crunching. Also looking at ways to increase still further the 5.2KW of solar we have.

Dave, what's the current best back-of-an-envelope benchmark for usable watts per square metre? I live in a traditional terrace house, and all I can use is the roof area of the house itself, about 6m x 7.5m. The ridge line is roughly east-west, so half of that has a good aspect for solar generation.

The other wrinkle is that I live in a conservation area, and the roof is clearly visible from a public open space. I think the planners would have a fit if I put up anything clunky: so my feeling up till now has been that putting up enough panels to make a difference would be more costly than average, and not worth the hassle. There would also be problems getting the feed down from the roof through the traditional building materials (Yorkshire stone slabs throughout). Obervations/suggestions?

These ones come out at about 220W/m^2. With regards to it being in a conservation area, rules vary a lot between councils and even different areas with the same councils so you would need to check what they are willing to allow. Often they are allowed if facing away from the street side even if visible from a public area but it will be down to the individual council rules.

We are in an ex council house and have 1.92 on the East facing side of the roof and 3.4Kw on the West facing side.
