    I've come up with a neater cleaner way of doing it now. It's still messy, but what I do now is this. Put down some paper towels. Snip the juice bottle's tip with a scalpel at a slant so the needle fits. Then insert the needle into the bottle and leave it there. Then I fill the ATM 5ml syringe, wipe the nozzle on a separate paper towel and then insert into the needle and press down as I am putting it in. I found you can put the nicotine through the needle by push, but you can't drag it in by force. Any way, once the syringe has emptied I pull it from the needle (leaving that in the juice bottle) and repeat. None of this mixing bottle nonsense. Do that four times and I'm good for a five minute shake :D

    So yeah, it was much easier and cleaner doing it that way. I've now ordered a 20ml syringe to try and do it all in one go. Not sure it will go into the nicotine bottle yet though, so haven't actually tried it.

    I just took the cap off and used a 1ml syringe 5 times. Was a pain in the ass compared to just doing 1.2ml of 72. especially as the shots are in really small bottles that can easily be knocked over.

    Yeah that sounds like a pain. I had the option of ordering the puppie slush in 10ml but thought better of it. Would rather mix once every 2-3 weeks than every sodding day.

    Think i might start doing batch mixing of bases then just adding flavour later. most people that i sell to buy 3mg anyway. That way i could just pour in 34ml of VG per 10ml of VG shot scaled up. add my 10% of flavour whenever i make anything final.

    Absolutely lovely to ride, nice to have all that torque available right throughout the rev range. Looking forward to wearing in those spanking new tyres at the weekend :grin:.

    Camera hood for my EFM lens, because lens hood is needed most of the time anyway
    Sling strap for the camera, standard one did my head in after about ten minutes
    Lens pouches to protect expensive lenses in the bag
    Lens caps because I dropped one

    Finally got my new screen, meaning I can use the keyboard I purchased a few months go.
    Dell S2417DG.

    It's a shame I can't use it to it's full potential. Seeing that it's hooked up to my current and only rig, my laptop, which has Optimus, meaning the Intel GPU is the driving the screen and the Nvidia feeding it, there's no G-Sync and best it can do is 120Hz. Nvidia GPU is a 780M so no G-Sync support there either.

    500 €, so around 445 quid. This ain't rip-off Britain.

    Anyway, I could spend 500€ on a screen now, and have it last me a good 5, 6 or maybe even more years.
    Or I could spend 250€ on a screen and be unhappy with it in two or three years.

    I was going based on amazon prices. I didn't think a 1440p 165Hz monitor was £450 I was thinking nearer 300

    It will be my winter project. I am going to get it either painted or powdered so that it resembles this.

    The only bike I own that I will not ride. Far too heavy (me) and it's far too short.
