    Not really, closest I have is an Imgur gallery; https://m.imgur.com/a/t7DRdtC

    I'm waiting on a 1.8" blue oled that I can try and work out how to drive with a miniature Arduino to do the ammo count and the like.

    Then make a display stand for a Glock that I like to house it.

    That does look good. I always preferred the look of the original version from the comics, myself, that's how old-skool I am :hehe:

    I like the more.. practical look of the 2012 version. But then, I always like firearms in films that look like they stand a chance of working.

    Been a long time since I've taken a weekend to myself to enjoy a new game, loved every second of it.

    Have you tried/mastered Post Stall Maneuvering yet? Get the hang of it and you can fly down the space elevator, but the real trick is getting back out again.

    Not just any flat either, but THE flat. This is the biggest shot of adrenaline I think I've ever had. I'm literally shaking right now.

    Going in to do the paper work tomorrow.

    Ah, that's fantastic. It really is a nice change to see support services like this working for once.

    Chuffed as balls for you, man.

    Excellent news, even better that other people are aware and taking note of your soon to be ex-landlady's behaviour.

    Thanks every one. And whilst I am at it, thank you for being here for me when I needed you all. Trust me when I say, the last two years have been a complete nightmare. I've not even had what I could call a home, so I have been all over the sodding place. The trust are incredible. Just, incredible. Ever since I was sent to them they have pretty much done everything stressful for me, with a smile (they really love what they do and you can tell).

    I don't know how much longer my mum has left. She's 76 now. However I have been leaning on her quite hard just to be able to cope. Now I can take that stress from her also.

    I do have to pay for the care worker because West Sussex county council are as tight as a gnat's chuff, however it will be more than worth it considering all of the stuff I have to pay for now is done. Like, cleaning windows, cleaning the property, 6 month maintenance checks etc. I am finally in safe hands.

    The letter for my landlady (that has been witnessed etc) is all being done as I type this and I go and sign it (with great delight) tomorrow. IIRC I have to give two months due to the rolling tenancy, but that just gives me more time to do what I gotta do so it's not all rushed. Which suits me fine.

    I actually just bought a kettle and etc. Mine have been broken/dodgy for ages, but not having a home kinda makes you not want to buy anything for a home if that makes sense. That feeling of it being a home has been broken for over two years. I hate it there. I go there for a few days here and there to get my autistic time I need, but yeah it's not fun or relaxing. It's just a shite hole that makes me feel dread.

    As I said they love their job. And that includes, but isn't limited to, nailing bad landlords to a cross lol. My care worker from the mental health centre just quit from the stress of the job. These ladies at the trust? they are like angels. They LOVE what they do.

    I've needed this for a decade. Yet I've just been struggling and getting nowhere.

    Congrats on El Flato Vault Tec

    Two things,

    One - Bike frame and fork as in stock is was a stock error

    Two - Job offer at Silverstone's come up needless to say I'm grabbing that! Double what I'm on now, OK its a half hour drive, but its serious money and perks galore.

    As long as you don't crash it Ti should last you forever. It's amazing how light it is, also. I have a set of pedals with Ti axles and they are as light as a feather, whereas regular pedals weigh a ton.

    I'd love a Ti crank axle but they are something daft like £80, then £25 a bolt (you need two). I can't justify that sadly lol.

    Should be bomb proof, only non Ti bit is the fork, seatpost, clamp, stem and bar, oh and the wheels of course!
    I may once built look at changing more bits to carbon or Ti. Ill put it all in the bike thread when its delivered!

    I know the Ti problems! Thought I'd have a nose and it makes carbon look cheap!
