Re-purposed a rather primitive shoe rack I made as a temporary measure when we move here 2.5 years ago into a small outdoor log store for fire-bowl wood.  Now loaded with ex-whisky barrel oak off-cuts from a local bloke that makes furniture and tables from the barrels.

Not the first time I've heard those designations in audaxes, by a long way.

The effect is that the air that has to be displaced causes a surge in the liquid flow - surely people have been taught to pour with the opening at the top so that the air is displaced smoothly?

No, never been taught that, but it's something I've learned from experience.

University of life, mate, innit.

I was taught/told at age 12 by the woodwork master at school when pouring out some woodstain!   ..... but then do they still teach woodwork at schools nowadays?

Now they've been bought out by SRAM

And immediately Shimano acted to ensure the Karoo won't work with Di2...

How are they 'bricking' the devices?
Literally disabling them with an update?

https://www.hivehome.com/product-news   - stuff will work until 1 August 2025 - then it wont.

Hmm, I can understand them turning off the server support for cameras (gits).

Turning off a hub in your home so that it won't communicate with other devices in your home; not sure that can be legal.
I don’t know Hive specifically, but there’s a probability (these decisions are made by marketeers after all) that the kit has a contact home heartbeat and will refuse to work without connection to the server.

I think that may be what I just described!  (Not heard that expression before - crystal clear description!)

Whose was the white and yellow Milan SL in the background?

Tim MacDonald.  (Top tip: You can map race numbers to riders by looking at the timing results.)

There’s a guy on Twitter calling the controls “CP2” and “CP4” and so on like it’s the TCR. I haven’t decided if it’s cute or grounds for a DQ.

I don't think it's a case of "turning off your hub" - AIUI all the activity/storage etc for all the Hive stuff is at their end - what they are going to do is "stop the function" in 2025.   The Hive hub is just, if you like, an extension to your own router with its own proprietary wifi that talks to all the Hive devices and relays to Hive HQ.
