    Worth the wait though - chicken casserole, and very tasty it was

    It’s well windy out. Still no rain yet though

    Following on from the moderately unpleasant Death Wish I & II saga (the action bits were ok in their way), now watching a prog on "Dmax+1" where some nutjob is trying to combine two Royal Enfield cast iron 500cc bike engines into one in India.

    Quite why he imagined a steel pin through the sprocket could take that torque I really don't know, considering the size of the splines he machined out of the centre of the sprocket to get it onto a smooth shaft.

    Ended up welding the sprockets to the shaft.

    It's going in a dune buggy for some reason.

    Oh, he's driving it in a desert over a 10km course.

    And with that, the clutch dies.

    Takes the clutch out, blows the crap off, puts it back together again & finishes the trip.

    All ST:TNG all the way tonight, starting with S3E24 Menage a Troi (TV Episode 1990), which is quite good despite combining two of the most irritating species in the Universe, Betazoids and Ferengi; followed by S3E25 Transfigurations (TV Episode 1990), which is basically a Species of the Week one, but pretty good with it.

    But really I just wanted to get those two out of the way so I could reach the really good stuff, to wit, S3E26 and S4E1, The Best of Both Worlds (TV Episode 1990) and The Best of Both Worlds: Part II (TV Episode 1990). Excellent Borg action, the way ST ought to be

    Goodnight all

    Morning denizens

    A bit damp out from last night’s rain, but the sun is peeping through (wanly, as above) from time to time and the temperature has soared into double digits at 10°C. Very windy still though

    Are scams becoming old school to appeal to old farts? Used to scam emails but today I got a letter. Apparently I'm entitled to half of $11m that a relative (that I've never heard of) invested in Beijing.

    PS Pretty much this one here. I am convinced!
