Wileyfox smartphone. Don't use a mobile very much - this seems to do everything pretty well at a reasonable price.

Now, the big question. What's her name to be?

Pegasus.

Largely a tribute to my Dad, who died earlier this year. 'I Am Pegasus' is a 1973 folk tune by Ross Ryan, a top 10 hit in Australia at the time, and one of Dad's favourite songs, played at his funeral. Coincidentally, the mythical winged horse was a child of Poseidon, Greek God of the sea. It's also a constellation by which one can navigate, whose brightest star is Epsilon Pegasi.

Lovely thought. So she is a he! At least you didn't go for "Medusa"!

Do keep us up to date with progress. I have an acquantance with someone from Fairline.

They have largely decamped from Oundle now but it was fun to be taken around the factory a few times.

I've just dealt with a planning application as part of their sale of the headquarters here.

What engine are you going to put in?

2 x 25HP? I thought this was going to be a charter boat, not a large remote-controlled model boat for entertaining kids at the lake? :P

It's a bloody sailboat, not a power boat. The engines are auxilliary. In any case there's no 'market' to go mental with. A 25 HP outboard is a 25 HP outboard, no more, no less.

I did ask where you were going to step the sails.

If it's a predominately a sailing craft, why not install some rowlocks for oars and dispense with the need for a fossil fuel powered set of engines! Go green.

Actually, sailing on to a buoy or indeed to a marina berth is a bit of a conundrum, as we found out in the Windward isles when the engine went phut.

How far are you going to take your craft? Hope you shall install a fridge for the white wine and shampoo.

What GPS will you fit?

Because attempting to row a 7-tonne, 40-foot catamaran would be stupid. WTF?

Not this one, but more or less the same. Bought it cause it's a 7 seater with actual leg room in the rear seats.

It's being shipped up from the South Island though and we're leaving for a trip up north on the 27th. Touch and go as to whether we'll get it in time and the air con is broken on our other car..... :uhoh: ...not looking forward to the prospect of long drives in the NZ summer with the windows down.

For the better half. Who decided, after a few weeks of driving it, that she preferred bumbling around in my family bus SUV mainly thank to its autobox.

So now I'm driving it. :x

And after ten years of soulless dutiful family bus driving, am rediscovering how much fun a nippy small car can be. I bloody love it. And I can't see the outside when I'm sitting inside. :nod:

That's a bit too sexy looking for a micra.

First 20 or so cups were weak, awful. THe manual did say it had an adjustment time and last few days it's been great. I thought I was going to have to do 2 shots of espresso but one slightly short lungo is now fine, creama though looks nothing like this pic. Got it on Amazon warehouse Italy for £155.

Nice

To be honest, the crema doesn't need to look anything like that - it's supposed to be just an emulsion of the oils in the coffee - not really a foam.

I have an ongoing dispute over our private water supply with a housing association neighbour. Being plums, they could not see the issue with ripping out my supply because they were upgrading theirs, and ours was in the way.

We reached an agreement. Yesterday we ran out of water, and so did our tenants, and I discovered they'd changed it again without me knowing and cut us off again. They have meanwhile closed for Christmas & New Year so I have had to go and buy 50m of 32mm MDPE and other bits and pieces and go up the hill and build a temporary supply to our settling tank.

My lawyers have been alerted.

Bought this for my son for Christmas. It's surprisingly good for such a small and relatively cheap bit of kit.

The temptation to put a large W at the front of the manufacturers logo was almost too much.....

Just picked up a pair of these, wifi multiroom speakers. Samsing R6, reviews are a bit mixed on the connectivity side. Anyone have these or the R7?

Also have SRS-HG1, these connect brilliantly, so I might sell on the R6's and just keep the 2 sony's.

I got a couple of these a while back for the kids so they could take them whilst on their trips abroad inter railing across Europe and then when studying in Canada on exchange schemes. Fantastic - cheap, great sound, good connectivity and very good battery life. Also very sturdy and survived being chucked around, packed and transported around. Excellent for the price!

Great sound? I bought one on a whim while browsing Amazon on the bog which was apt as it sounds like shit.
