    @JayDzed said: The allegedly 'leftist' party, despite really clear and obvious messaging from the electorate, have rushed to continue 90% of the Tory policies They're worse. The new guy is an evil monster....

    Something I realised in the 2019 bushfires was just how quickly it can all go wrong and you're suddenly fighting to stay alive. It can be just a couple of minutes from being annoyed that the mobile data has suddenly...

    Gasdive needs to chime in here. Did I miss all the excitement? 70m is easy. I was doing deeper than that on a Saturday morning fun dive before there was GPS. We were dropping anchors into wrecks based on lining...

    Thanks. Whatever automated thing was nailing the pound to 1.0848 has broken or been turned off. The moment it stopped doing whatever it was that held the value, it fell to 1.04. That's a ~10% dip since Thursday. It's since...

    I've been watching the pound vs dollar the last few weeks. It's been going up and down, but mostly down. 2 says ago it hit 1.0848 and then rose sharply to 1.0858. It flatlined at that for 30 minutes. Then...

    EC said: Scapegoat Yes, that's the word I was searching for. (I'm not enjoying aging) I'd also add "lightning rod". No one blows up parliament (well, except for that one time) where most of the dreadful enabling decisions are made...

    Well I'll still be here, and still unpopular. On that vein, and returning to the subject. I've forgotten what it's called, but I'm sure there's some tradition where some one or some thing takes on all the sins of the...

    This is really really excellent advice. Thankyou. A lot to think about. Particularly the bit about why. I don't even know why. So some thinking time there. I know how it started (it was a discussion about how to keep...

    Excellent advice. I shall have to remember that. Particularly as our arguments have a distinctly Python feel to them. https://youtu.be/xpAvcGcEc0k...

    Dave, can I get your professional advice here? Post 465 from EC How do I respond? I've written a TED talk about air to air and why air to water doesn't work very well, and EC responds by quoting me...

    Greg said: You have forgotten the real almost-complete barrier to useful Heat Pumps in the UK: - the politics. Yeah. That's true. I don't know enough about it, so I do ignore it. The equipment exists, designed for 240V 50...

    PS, it is of course not to say that any particular heat pump straight to air will be any good. Manufacturers come up with all sorts of ingenious ways to make their products shite. Usually so they can get you...

    EC said: Not here, they didn't. The epidemiologists were all talking sense (initially "we simply don't know") and giving good advice (including "use better PPE"), but the politicians were overruling them. I don't know about the UK situation. Certainly WHO,...

    Well, you've spent a giant pile of money. You're not likely to be convinced that you've done your dough by some dill on the internet. So using your numbers. 290/(290-283) is 41 308/(308-283) is 12 So you're throwing away only...
