Ctrl-Alt-Del / Re: Fettled any computer stuff today?
« Last post by Maverick on Today at 08:57:28 am »
Wednesday late pm the heating goes off. Investigation revealed no power to the boiler, a check of the DU revealed the power to upstairs had tripped. Reset and restart boiler and all was well. Later that evening go to put some music on (Raspberry Pi + external DAC running Volumio into hi-fi system) - can't find music on the NAS. Investigation reveals no power on the NAS (HP Microserver running Freenas). There has been a magic smoke visitation  :-[ . New power supply arrived yesterday via Ebay, 15 minutes later all is restored. Huge sigh of relief as there are >3000 albums on the NAS and although they are backed up, the back up is split between several disks and putting it all back together with all the album art etc and getting Volumio the re-catalogue it would be a major pain in the bum.

Thanks all. As it happens, I'm in Newham, but very close to Waltham Forest, where restrictions are much less stringent, so I've found a place to park the car about 6-7 minutes walk from the place where I'm staying. I'll be able to move it back outside after 9pm tonight.

That Germans - or at least one of them! - can find great ways of describing their leg length for a Velomobile boom. “Dackelbeinig” = Dachshund-legged...

Just don't call them halb Dackel.

Sorry to be crude but....snot. Loads of the stuff the day after swimming.

I assume that its an allergic reaction to something in the water (its worse at one pool of the four I use but I get it to some degree at all four) but my question is, will it last? I mean, will the reaction stop or would meds (and if so what type) help.

While its not painful or anything, its just unpleasant.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

There seems to have been a fair bit of human error and fallibility (to put it mildly) in the fire safety plans for the cathedral.

Seems to be a common failing. Applies to quite a few ancient buildings and some not so ancient. It's like everything else: doing nothing saves money, until it doesn't.
