    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Tink, apologies for the double post... I got back from Iceland early Tuesday morning. It's probably the most amazing place that I've ever been. Surprise 40th from my wife. She did a brilliant job of organising it all, from the brilliant hotel to all the excursions/things to see. It's like a different planet, and even having seen a lot about it because I've always wanted to go, it doesn't prepare you for the reality. It's real bucket list stuff, and I'm fortunate to have seen a small part of it. Brilliant people too, a really chilled out country (if you'll pardon the pun). Living costs are crippling though, but I'm already wanting to go back to see more.

    Yeah... Judging by the price of food here, I'm not in Iceland the shop. It's extortionate.

    I'm currently in Iceland. It's one of the most amazing places I have ever been, and I'm a lucky bugger for coming here. Surprise birthday gift from the wife. It's bucket list stuff.

    What is this now, the soldering thread...?

    Getting back into action - My old kit

    No worries. Mag springs should be fine. As you say, it's better than the gym too, I wish I had the time to skirmish again!

    Servicing will be cheaper than buying new! Replace anything that forms a seal. O rings etc. The gas valves on your mags may be shot because of these, same for an AEG piston head. It may be easier to just replace the whole piston if you can't be bothered stripping it. Pull the gearboxes and clean them. Regrease and shim as necessary. If you keep track of original shims, you should be ok if they go back in order, assuming the guns ran fine before storage. You batteries will be shot. It's all about lipo now. Cheap enough, but you'll need a new charger. Not sure on current ones, but I have an IMAX B6 which is ace. Beware of clones of this. Cheap barrels, and maybe replace hop rubbers. If you fancy, modify for flat hop/r hop/whatever is the latest. Also, upgrade your health. Unless you've been keeping fit, 12 years out of gaming will have you blowing out of your *albartroth*! Just advice from me, may be outdated but I've not skirmished for a few years now either. Well done for getting back in to it!

    Fair enough. I'm on a 38 meg package. Right now I'm watching YouTube on an iPad, flicking around on my phone and sometimes watching YouTube on that too, the boy is watching Netflix on the TV, and my wife is upstairs on her computer and playing Spotify on her phone. No issues with that. No waiting or buffering. Just saying 🙂

    Genuine question, do you need 300 meg?

    If your semi handy, the window can be a cheap fix if you take the door card off and have a look. You should be able to rig it so it stays up and doesn't open again very cheaply if you aren't bothered about it opening.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a cheap portable hard drive? My wife got us a trip to Iceland for my birthday and as my phone has no expandable storage because Google are idiots (have I mentioned that the pixel 4 is a terrible phone apart from the camera...) I could do with something I can dump pictures on, and also from my drone. I don't need a lot of storage. A couple of hundred gigs will do, and something cheap as I doubt I'll use it much. I didn't want to gamble with a Chinese eBay one... Thanks in advance!

    Hedge, that is rubbish 😥 Scorch, I never saw it as an issue. No different bro a company car I suppose. I treat it like other cars I've owned without a second thought. I am truly glad I don't own it though, as any issues mean the dealer sorts it under warranty 🙂
