Advocacy & Safety  - 
 
Question for the group... As a cyclist I'm not obliged to use a "shared" (and by this I mean shared with pedestrians) cycle lane even if one is provided alongside a road (rule 63 I think) and can choose to use the road instead although using the cycle lane may be safer. At what point should I consider the road option as preferable? Obviously if lots of pedestrians.... but a mate of mine reckons current Highways Agency advice is if you're doing more than 15mph or so. Anyone else have any views? Cheers.

If the shared use path was busy and I wanted to ride more than 10 mph then I'd use the road. The only time I use shared paths next to the road is if I consider it not to be safe due to high traffic speed, road condition or if I want to ride gently and chat to fellow cyclists/family.

Well the rhubarb needed cutting... 4.8kg! (The picture is of it after the big chop.) That is making (I think) somewhere around 17 litres of rhubarb wine minus sediment and whatever's left of the stalks when I press them later. 3 demijohns worth! And that's only the first crop of the year...

What have I done? !!!

4.2.2 now available to EE in UK on Nexus 4. Had to clear data and force close Google Services Framework to get it to pick up.

Maybe I was being dumb but I thought/assumed the Google Now card for travelling to work just queried Google directions for the route. It doesn't.

I just started travelling to a new workplace and the quickest/ normal Google directions route isn't the one I use due to a couple of bad junctions.

Within a week its worked out what my actual route is and is using that now! Tapping directions brings up the normal default driving route...

So yes, they really do track your every move.... Duh! #facepalm

Nexus S  - 
 
Question for rabid Nexus-ers out there.... Now the Nexus S is no longer getting updates... (turns out "Nexus" does not mean "future-proof", thanks for that Google!) - does anyone have any suggestions/ best options for rooting, and with which ROMs, at which level of android etc. Am thinking of getting a Nexus4 and keeping my NexusS lurking around as a development device probably at ICS. Presume CM9 is the way to go?

I also have a Nexus S and I still have to upgrade to Android 4.1. After that I will think about upgrading but I will most likely skip another Nexus if I can keep it running fine. Most of the phones are running 4.0 / 4.1 so I will all the new apps anyway.

Pink fizz

Oh dear I think I left the rhubarb wine too long in primary fermentation. 1066 dropped to 1002 so its basically saying "totally done". In 12 days.

Have transferred for secondary fermentation anyway. I'm guessing it wont actually do it properly because there's nowt left to ferment anaerobically.

Will leave for a month to see if anything happens... If anyone knows if this is going to be a problem, I'd love to know.

I should probably stick to scrumpy.

+Cumulonimbus ... Loving PressureNet. Anyone with a barometer in their android phone should run it and make sure to share with Forecasters. Should considerably improve Numerical Weather Prediction. PS. If you need a hand... Let me know. Would also be very interested to know about your correction for MSLP, and what residual accuracy that leaves on these diddy little barometers. Would be cool to get isobaric visualisations...and reported integral error rates on forecasts from say UK Met Office or ECMWF.

Welcome to the bodyshop... Just waiting for 1st coat to dry. Gotta love isopon P38 and fibreglass matting! Not convinced by the colour match (yet).. Think it needs cutting and some lacquer...

Ah after all that all it needed was a new exhaust! (Which i knew anyway, it's been sounding rough as a bears' armpit since the summer)...Got told that "most of these are just rotten, but this one's solid.", by the MOT guy. Anyway, so that'll be another year of practically cost-free motoring: = +1 to "'er Maj"!
