    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    Got the keys to our new house last week, just before this lockdown thing got serious. This is not a good time to be trying to move...

    Well, I can't afford 300, but I was on the 200 package. Since the wife isn't well, we can't go out much. We watch a lot of shows on streaming, and often she'll be watching something while I'm on the xbox in the other room, so it can bottleneck on slower connections. It's more that it's not available if I do want it than whether I need it or not.

    Just occurred to me to check on the broadband situation at the new address. Virginmedia doesn't cover it, so can't get the fastest broadband available. Not sure what the best option will be, but no one else offers speeds over 70mbps whereas Virgin offer upto 300. Just another thing to be unhappy about with this move.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    They'll rip out the flooring even if it's new and/or in good condition. No one I've spoken to can actually justify the practice of not replacing it. The council/housing associations could buy flooring in bulk and are paying workers anyway, so it would be significantly cheaper for them to install it than individual tenants. You hit the nail on the head with the money situation, it's literally about them saving a few quid. Social housing tenants tend to be poorer people - not always, but often - and they're forced to pay to install flooring and redecorate a house which doesn't belong to them. Private rented properties have flooring and so on provided by the landlord, and are rented to more affluent people who could better afford to fit their own. It's madness. I'm more concerned about being forced to move to a tiny mid-terrace bungalow, 50m from the road, with no allocated parking. That's obviously the ideal set up for mobility-impaired disabled people and the elderly... [emoji848] At least it's not the one with ten steps leading up to it. What's the point in building a bungalow for people who struggle with stairs then putting a flight of *fruitcage* stairs outside the front door?!

    Got offered a property. It's a bungalow, which probably has a level-access shower room already installed. Doesn't have its own parking space, much less a driveway, which is a bit of an issue, but nothing we can do about it. Apparently the current resident has been there for a long time and isn't leaving until the 16th of Feb, after which they'll have to assess the property; refit the kitchen & bathroom, and ensure it's clean & safe. They'll not, however, redecorate or refit flooring because renting a house with no flooring makes *so* much sense... [emoji19]

    It's the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. It's also International Holocaust Memorial Day. Over 17,000,000 people were killed by the Nazi regime in their genocidal quest for 'Aryan Purity', over six million of those were Jews, but also a great many gypsies, slavs, homosexuals and generally anyone the Nazis didn't like were rounded up and exterminated on an industrial scale. I'm already sick to the back teeth of the misinformation and downright ignorance I have seen in the media, especially on social media, regarding it...

    Fixed it, and saved it twice just to make sure.

    The Tinkercad site thing apparently decided not to save the completed C Clip design I'd made, even though I saw it regularly pop up 'autosaving' messages. When I open the project, the finished design is not there, just the basic shapes I'd added before assembling them. I've still got the STL file I exported last night, but if I import that again it comes in as a single sold shape so I can't edit the individual parts in case I need to alter any sizes. So I'll have to rebuild it and then try to figure out what's wrong with the save feature. I can't find a manual save button anywhere, it just 'saves' every now and then but seemingly doesn't *keep* those updates... Annoying.

    It's a dream we all have - racking and pegboards full of kit and RIFs... I doubt whatever crappy council house I end up in will have space for that. I'll be lucky to get off-road parking, much less a shed. A garage would be a miracle. Although I'm told that the council will rent a garage separately, but it would be pretty inconvenient to store stuff in a place I need to drive to - plus I'd need separate insurance. I wouldn't like to store my RIFs there, even with insurance. Not sure I'd go for it. Maybe if it had power... Edit: I've completed my first ever 3D design, from scratch - an AUG C-clip. I'm not 100% sure that the sizes are right, the measurements I was working on didn't look right to me so I've asked Doc to check them - he has precision engineering tools for measuring things and I'm sure he's got at least one intact c-clip knocking about. Once I've made sure the sizes are right, I'll put it on thingiverse for everyone to benefit from.

    Good effort! Especially in this January weather - that's really more of a summer job...

    Cool, I might have a look. Thanks.

    I'd like to get into 3D printing, but haven't got the space or money to get a printer, the materials or the software. Nor do I know anything about 3D design. It's on my list of 'things to spend a windfall on' - but it's behind a *lot* of other, more important things.

    I've not seen any new cars with winders, even just in the back.

    It's often cheaper than buying a used car and having to spend money on MOT, servicing, maintenance, etc. Plus you get a shiny new car every few years. I'm quite happy with the mobility scheme cars I've had, which is basically a leading scheme. Ours includes RAC cover, tyres, insurance, services and everything. All I have to buy is fuel and screenwash. Housing update: a surprisingly helpful woman phoned me back and has sorted everything out - turns out some idiot hadn't set our account up correctly with the evidence we'd submitted, so we couldn't bid on disability properties. It's now resolved and I've bid on the bungalow I saw earlier plus a wheelchair adapted new-build house with a lift, that's a bit further away but still might be good. It's so new that the estate isn't even on Google maps. I'd rather not move back to the city council area as their council tax is higher, but beggars can rarely be choosers.
