|The Mick McCarthy farewell tour|
at 17:08 31 Mar 2018
It reflects very, very poorly on Mick as a person that he can't see that it would be much better for the club if he stood aside immediately to let the club move on.
Obviously there's a vacuum of leadership and authority in the club higher up, which isn't his fault, but he'll know full well how much the club could benefit if he left now.
|Any Detectorist types out there|

Question about metal detectors:
I need to recover metal temperature loggers which are about the size of a button (and a bit thicker). Would a standard metal detector be able to find these? The loggers are deployed in grassland/moorland. I take a grid reference where the loggers are deployed, but the accuracy of the grid ref is up to +/-5m in lat and long, and refinding the data loggers is very difficult - previously I marked the sites with a cane a fixed bearing/distance away, but I don't want to mark the sites this time.
Would a metal detector do the job, and would a cheapo one from Argos suffice, or do I need a better one.
Thanks in advance if anyone can assist.

Why does the media keep going on about it? Seems massively boring to me. So Russia knocked off a bent spy, who didn't know that was a thing?
|How easy is it to carry a hardtop canopy cover for a toyota hilux?|
at 19:44 23 Feb 2018
Just been told by a courier that they will be delivering a canopy cover for a vehicle to my work tomorrow so I will have to go in to take it off the courier, but here's the question: will I be able to carry it on my own into the building and up the stairs to stash it somewhere until sorting it out on monday? (that's assuming the courier b*ggers off without offering to help) (I'm not particularly strong)
|Engine rattle odds please|
at 16:43 5 Feb 2018
what are the chances that a 2001 Civic with an engine rattle when the car idles and at low revs gets me 117 miles to Kintyre this evening in sub-zero temperatures?
|Anyone watching (or paying attention to) the Third Test in SA?|
at 10:37 27 Jan 2018
What happened this morning? Seems a bit off to me if the pitch was made safer before the SA fourth innings run chase (if that's what happened), while India presumably batted their second innings on a bit of minefield.

Looking forward to spending more time on his computer, apparently.

We're now planning to implement regulations from the EU, while having no say at all in the drafting of said regulations.
Not one of our better brexit ideas. Wonder what the plan will be tomorrow.

Mass murder... what a joke
A disgraceful film was released this week, in which misery, pain, fear and mass murder are milked for feeble giggles.
It is not very good on its own terms, and – like so many modern comedians – uses the f-word repeatedly to jolt the semblance of laughter from its audience, much as you might make a corpse twitch with seeming life by plugging it into the national grid.
The Death Of Stalin makes a farce out of that wholly grim and squalid event. As the monster himself lies dying, a gang of slave-drivers, secret police monsters and gruesome toadies, plus a murderous paedophile, are portrayed as a kind of Carry On farce or a Monty Python sketch. Ha ha.
Well, the only question you need to ask is whether anyone would think the final days of Hitler, the other great European mass-killer, torturer and tyrant, would make a good comedy, with Goebbels, Himmler and the rest of the Nazi elite played for laughs. No, of course not.
But fashionable showbiz persons still can’t grasp that Stalin (Left-wing) was just as evil as Hitler (Right-wing). So they can’t see that either.
Lots of great insight there from Mr Hitchens, brilliantly written as always, and it sounds like it would be loads of fun to sit down with Peter for a pint or two. And a great point about there being no comedies about Hitler. Excellent.
