Community ride

Hope you all have a good ride in the morning. I'd been booked away on a couples night by the missus so couldn't make it but now so ill I can't do either!

Hoping to make the next one (which is what I said last time; 3rd time lucky?).

Fix It Sticks

Not the cheapest basic cycling tool but a great idea!  There's still time to back it, a fellow cyclist, and receive a useful tool, all in one happy little package!

I've backed, opting for the basic non-painted fix-it sticks.

You're a Tour Maker

Woohoo!

Really excited, even if I do have to wear a lime green (Asda) uniform!

Don't feel too bad. Remember lime green was the British official track racing colour around 1998 for a couple of years.

Dropping Dropbox?

If the new appointment of Dr. Condoleezza Rice (touted as a war criminal) as director on Dropbox's board offends you, use the following codes for extra free cloud storage. (Referral codes)

https://copy.com?r=jsID9Y Copy with 5GB extra free (20GB total) and easy transfer your dropbox files ability.

https://register.tresorit.com/download?mode=1&ref=gfeeBG Tresorit with 500mb free (5.5GB total) - not as much freebie space but a good service (Linux support later).

Raspberry Pi

It's fun, fun, fun!  Picture below taken with the camera module.  Currently running a 1 hour time-lapse test with it.

If only I had some more electronics knowledge so I could make bigger and better projects!

+John Bump I've seen those arduino things but still not entirely sure what to do with them.  I gather there's a vast array of sensors etc. I've seen a pretty cool LED cube I'd like to build one day, and that 'behind the TV lighting' thing that a large TV maker "invented".

+Chris Mason I've googled a few projects but a lot of them I could just do on a spare Linux machine just as easily.  I was hoping to build some funky projects but my lack of electronics knowledge (other than basics) and lack of creativity have left me somewhat wanting!

I'm definitely (not) going to be building the FM transmitter to take over people's radio.

I've been visiting the Hare and Tortoise for a number of years; since management changed to Vintage Inns the quality of the food has improved greatly. The food is beautiful, well presented and very flavourful. The restaurant was very busy during my last visit and yet the waiting time didn't reflect this as the food was brought to the table quickly, as were additional drinks ordered. The staff are always pleasant, food prices are fair although some drinks can be a little on the pricey side, the decor is very rustic and the toilets were clean. The bar area is very small as this is more a restaurant than pub and it can get very busy early evening time so unless you're eating or have pre-booked a table, don't be surprised if you have to drink elsewhere.

A lovely little pub with a warming and cosy atmosphere, friendly staff and pleasant decor. The food is beautiful, well presented and quite fairly priced too.
