I used to work with her nephew.  Same age as me.
Folders / Stiff hinges
« Last post by quixoticgeek on Yesterday at 10:12:11 pm »

The main frame hinge is getting really stiff now.

What have people found most effective to lube this hinge? Would chain lube work? Wd40? Or should I invest in some sort of penetrating oil?

Well, sloe gin is a thing (and the sloes complement juniper), I'm more referring to the practice of just taking some basic mass-produced gin or vodka and bunging in some flavouring additives and sweeteners and adding £10 to the price.

Reminds me of the time pack at university one of colleague decided for reasons that I suspect derive rational explanation to make mars bar-flavoured vodka, so he dropped a couple of mars bars in a large container filled with supermarket vodka and left them for a couple of months. The result looked someone had decanted a couple of turds and toilet water into the container.

I restricted myself to black pepper and chilli vodkas whilst a PSO. I think my most outlandish, but oddly good was earl grey tea homebrew wine. Not tried that one again.

As a 16 year old, I attended the royal premier of "The Knack" .  I then fell deeply, adolescently, in love with Rita Tushingham.
Mrs B is currently watching something on the teiiybox.  Rita is one of the cast.

Blimey, we've all aged a bit, haven't we?
Bloody hell.  Am I really that old?

Apologies if this has been answered before, but which train companies websites allow you to book bikes when buying tickets online?

Not a singlespeed in sight, at least from those who submitted their rig photos.

Markus Stitz is on singlespeed:

Is it fixed as well?

Seriously impressive either way.

Stuff from the new Bowie EP.  Half of it is filler and the good stuff is studio versions of stuff I have on bootleg.

MiniGB has an adventure game on her Raspberry Pi (running Kano as the OS) that has got her used to cd, ls, cat, mv and a few other UNIX commands. She started using that at 8yo.

(I didn't get my hands on a UNIX shell until I was 16.)
