  1. Had to press 'load more activity' 18 times before all the unread content was showing. How tedious is that? Still, I suppose the mobile users like it...

     

  2. Always a bit worrying when a supplier's Mastermind specialist subject is avoiding the question.

  3. Notification settings still very flaky

      I'm glad I didn't use bollox instead of 'flaky'...

       

  4. Shouting at prats on the TV or the radio doesn't stop them, but makes me feel better

      When I was a very young child, I thought that if I shouted right into the speaker on the TV, they'd be able to hear me. It never worked, sadly.

      Invest in a foam brick to chuck at the screen, that'll help too.

      Don't worry as Mr Humphries is actually and really, really leaving the morning shout over anyone interviewed (except in very special circumstances) programme.

      One can but hope that Dapol will do a different series from the one chosen by Hornby.

      Or that Dapol go for a Manor instead, assuming Bachmann don’t announce it!

  7. The trouble was due to the large lap and increased travel of valve. It had come about through the increased throw and the angularity of the quadrant link. In the Walschaert gear the more lap obtained, the more work the combining lever had to do, and only a small percentage of the work was taken by the quadrant. In that particular case the angularity of the link was rather excessive, and it would be an advantage to decrease the angularity of the link and increase the angularity of the radius r...

      At least HM Customs don't appear to charge an Entry Fee in addition to any duty or purchase tax liable at the time of import.

       

      New Zealand Customs Service charge a flat rate Entry Fee of $45.80 + purchase tax on imports of $400 (approx £217) or more.

       

      A lot of the increased focus by Customs on personal imp...
