They're pretty good if you're serious about cycling, though I always think it's better to just get out there on the road. The issue for me was that it was just a bit boring to pedal in front of the telly and that. I'd either rather be at a gym or out in the real world.

Don't get an air resistance one, whatever you do. Fluid or magnetic is what you want. Also keep in mind that you WILL need some sort of fan pointing at you while you're doing it, you'll get incredibly hot very quickly.

I used them for years when I was training seriously. They work very well if they're set up properly. They don't feel like real riding, but they're close enough. It's boring as fuck, but it's not too bad if you listen to podcasts or whatever. I made a little desk that clipped onto my handlebars so I could catch up on my reading.

If you use slick tyres, a magnetic or fluid trainer and a concrete floor, they're reasonably quiet. Treaded tyres, a fan-based trainer or a hollow wooden floor will make a right old racket. I preferred the units with continually-variable resistance like the CycleOps Magneto - the ones with a resistance adjustment lever are a bit fiddly for interval training.

You'll probably want to do your turbo sessions in an unheated garage or shed, otherwise you'll boil your arse off. You don't get the cooling effect of the wind on a turbo, so you get hot quickly. You might still want to set up a fan if you tend to run hot. If you sweat heavily you'll want to drape a towel over your frame, otherwise your sweat will rot your paintwork.

Turbo manufacturers make these thong contraptions to protect your bike, but most people just use an old towel.

Germanium transistors are pretty shitty, though. Nice low bandgap which would be handy for low voltage work, if they didn't leak and change so wildly with temperature.

And decent lead free solder (lots of silver, decent flux) is now good enough that I've abandoned SnPb unless I particularly need the lower temperature.

Guitar nerds prefer germanium transistors for some distortion and fuzz effects. It's a subtle difference, but they really do sound nicer. RoHS also killed the cadmium sulphide photoresistor, which is at the heart of some of the best compressors.

Before anyone accuses me of self-pity - I don't feel sorry for myself I feel sad and frustrated
It might be interesting to read
I've been released from prison having served three years. I'm now unemployable and without any friends, living in a hostel full of criminals in a city in England. There are drugs here, im a former heavy user, and there is alcohol everywhere. I'm on a drug which stops alcohol working as im trying to quit, having wasted money.
I'm so sorry for what I did but i cannot fix it and I think it's done a lot of damage. I have no friends, none, all deleted me. Little chance of ever getting a job, and struggling to find a tenancy. There were other offences, burglaries that I did and wasnt caught for; I feel like fucking this life off and grassing myself up for everything I ever did. I've got nothing else to do and it might make some victims feel better but WOULD it? They'd prefer to CATCH the bad guy not have him give himself up because h's got nothing left to live for.. although it would be unusual, heartwarming even.. I'd get another three years, would prob run concurrent with my current license period (1/2 in, 1/2 out for the sentenced offence) Long history of mental illness, got alot better in prison.. I was never able to love myself and had constant paranoia due to conspiracies I was constantly contemplating.. Now i feel like I cannot ever have what i always wanted - warmth and love - because of what i've done..
It matters less to me now, I just want probation and the police to leave me alone. Im not going into details about the offences although I worked out why they happened and it is damn complicated, psychologically.
Anyone been in the same position?

I unironically enjoy Bill Wurtz's (Wurtz'?) music. Behind the silly lyrics and confusing videos, a lot of it is so complex. "I wanna be a movie star", for example, is constructed as 3 bars of 9/4, followed by one bar of 13/4 in the verses.

Im having a really strange problem that i have never encountered before, and didnt even realise actually ever really happened.

Ive been in a relationship with this girl for about 5 or 6 months and everything was going great. We both had the same feelings for each other etc.

We lived together in temporary accommodation for 4 months and then she got moved to a different place round the corner to a place that has keyworkers as she is bipolar. At first i wasnt allowed access to the building as i didnt have any photo id. I eventually got this and we resumed relations for 3 days a week. Then i got banned from the building for going to her place whilst having been signed in by another resident. Stupid way to be treated as adults.

Now the problem is that we are lucky to meet 2 or 3 times a month and its all on her terms or so it seems. She calls me up to meet me when she wants sex and sneaks into my place. Now, it may sound like every blokes dream being used in this way but what i miss is the companionship and i feel robbed of an opportunity at happiness as we really did get on so well.

Things are that ridiculous i have to write her handwritten letters as she smashed her phone up at Christmas during one of her episodes.

She says the only way around this is to find permanent accommodation as we cant be meeting on the street at our age or in this weather and even when we have done its not like we can do much...

In essence, im heartbroken as in all my years ive never been this much in love. If i could just get over it and forget her that would make me happy as a second option but i cant get her out of my mind, i just think about her 24/7. Also, security at my place are also bastards and wont let her contact me even though they know we have been together for some time so when she comes looking for me ill be in my room none the wiser.

Can anyone tell me what course of action they would take in this situation?

At a glance (sorry to be that guy BUT) it sounds all like BS to me mate, she sounds like a manipulator too scared to break up. I know from experience... If she really wanted to be with you more often, not when she just wanted to have sex, she would manage it. Sorry mate.

Well we just had a conversation about this on the phone after what ive read here. I applied pressure and said it cant continue cause its doing my head in and she got all upset and said no way does she want to break up and finds the situation as impossible as i do but same as me cant think of a solution that will allow us to be together again.

Im just hoping to get rehoused and then this problem would be solved. If as you mention she did want to end the relationship she is the type of person that would say so. And to be honest it would be a whole lot easier to deal with than this situation :(

The Daniel Craig Bond movies were a welcome change from the Brosnan era because the latter got a little too outlandish with all the pretend spy tech. The low point was the air drop scene in Die Another Day which featured piss poor CGI effects even for 2002. Also, the whole car sponsoring thing became a little too much. Not to mention that they switched to BMW.

Daniel Craig is (or was, if he's really not going to come back) really the no-nonsense Bond for the 21st century who does well in action-driven movies. His Bond films have been the most enjoyable ones in a long time.

I saw them discussing this on The Wright Show (not by choice) and I noticed they were heavily leaning on "some Haitian sex workers are underage". Not even that the ones involved in the Oxfam thing were, just that underage sex workers exist so therefore dot dot dot. It's fucking irresponsible and I have no idea how they manage to stay on the right side of the law with this stuff.

If I made a tweet right now that said "some females are underage and Matthew Wright has sex with females. Paedophile?" I'd full expect to be answering for it in court.

"Sexual assault" means something illegal, whereas "misconduct" can just mean something that HR should have dealt with. That's the fun part about libel - when defending yourself you get to decide what meaning to ascribe to the words, and the other side has to prove you meant something else.

To be fair, it was Oxfam's own report into the matter which stated “It cannot be ruled out that any of the prostitutes were under-aged.”

My other half does a fair bit of charity work and there's been at least three instances of people misappropriating funds and one instance of someone being caught on CCTV going through the coat pockets and bags of the service users. Every single time it was hushed up and no further action was taken because the charity didn't want the negative publicity that would have gone with it.

I get the sense you're making a very direct metaphor but I'm still confused. Is this what I get for not lurking the IRC anymore?

/g/26313 Value Tablets in 2018
Alright lads.

Bad news, my £100 Tesco Hudl 2 shit the bed a while ago.

Unfortunately they've stopped making them, so I've been scraping the lower end of the market for a replacement. There's nothing really catching my eye as good value, even the wanky half-sales websites like Which? and CNET are saying as much.

My budget is probably £250 absolute max, preferably around the £200 mark.

>preferably 10" screen, as long as it's not distinctly noted as being shit quality I don't mind
>proper Android OS, nothing Amazon or Chinese proprietary
>expandable memory (32Gb+)
>smooth general operation and HD playback
>not fussed about camera quality at all

Any tips?

Not these days. Plus, you get the item in your hands without having to pay for and then wait for postage. Also, and a 12-month guarantee, which is probably worth the actual 10% or so markup over eBay.

In my experience, too, Cash Converters/Generator are open to haggling. My mate wanted a camera and managed to haggle a Canon 100D with 18-55, 70-300, a flash, and a bag, and spare battery all in to £300 because it'd been sat there a month or so.

I had a very quick look. The second product I looked at (Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 T230) is 50% cheaper on eBay. You can even buy it brand new for cheaper than they sell it used.

That happens often, but their prices usually reflect demand rather than market value and you can get most things cheaper. They charge more for things that sell well, which is why you can still find Gamecube games going for £40 in CeX that you can get cheaper on Ebay.

Is it a good idea to buy a fixer-upper if you know fuck all about cars?

I've seen a Porsche 944 for sale that's a category N write-off that I'm considering going for. On the one hand, I'd have no real idea what I'm doing and I'm not a very handy person. I have, however, watched Wheeler Dealers and that's the extent my knowledge goes.

I bought it like that, I swear. And I wish it was plastidip - the black is literally the paint you use to coat stoves with. I know this because there was still a can of it rattling around in the boot when I took it home.

Apparently some bloke had bought it to try and turn it into a 'mad drift nugget' as the kids say, but he got bored and traded it into a combined MX5/Porsche specialist dealer. I was there buying something or other for the Boxster I had at the time, and saw that in the corner, I remarked on the brutally awful paint job and the dealer told me the story and said I could have it for 500 quid.

It was still down as red on the logbook when I got it too, it was a conviction on wheels that thing.

You're trying to convince people the MX-5 isn't a womens car, and you pick the video of the car with the marple dash and the dildo-esque gearknob.

I think you're just prolonging the argument by making points like this, no matter how valid. Not that there was ever a mod in this thread defending or lambasting Star Wars, just for the record. It'd be different if the lad got banned for being right (or wrong) about Star Wars, but what actually happened was he made an infuriatingly silly point and was comedy banned for it, at which point he asked for everyone's badge numbers and made it a whole thing, after which he was banned twice more for fun/autism.

Believe it or not, mods do not last long here if they make frequent over-judicious bannings.

/pol/83894 Good Friday Agreement
Does our resident Norn Irelend lad know what the deal is surrounding the land border with The Republic? As far as I know, troops on the streets is a direct contravention of the GFA, as historically they had a habit of shooting teenagers, as is doing anything which inhibit Co-op between the two nations. That was ratified by the EU and UN(?), so it's not really up for debate (as far as I know) so I have a couple of questions.
1) Why do the DUP want to stir tensions with a hard border?
2) Are my assumptions correct and is there anything else you're aware of people need to know here? It wasn't discussed at all outside warnings from Blair and Major which were dismissed as "Project Fear" despite being, apparently, perfectly valid.

The agreement guarantees incorporation of the ECHR in NI law, with direct access to the courts. Either we need to remain under the jurisdiction of the ECJ, we need a special deal for NI, or we need to amend the GFA.

The GFA doesn't directly mention the border, but it does pledge the removal of "security installations", which could be reasonably interpreted as including border checkpoints. It's very difficult to conceive of a border that is soft on both sides but satisfies WTO and EU rules. If we retain tariff-free trade with the RoI, then we'd be obliged under the most favoured nation rule to abolish tariffs on all our imports.
