Not sure this is a great idea , 400kg a shelf though so only 1200kg to fuck your car when it collapses

It's a great idea if done properly and respected. I have one done with proper racking though.

Needs to be wider and only two shelves. I normally keep tool carts underneath but it's set for the height of a car bonnet if need be.

Also put a beam at the rear lower down for support and one at the front above the lower shelf to act like a barrier to stop boxes falling off.

Nowhere near 400kg on those shelves, nearer 40 if that. 1200 kg on those shelves? How are you going to do that ?Unless you’re storing gold bars. That’s a whole car ffs. But agree, stupid having the car under it, something will fall of and dent the bonnet.

Sounds like a TV show. Some sort of slogan/tagline "went for a loaf of Hovis and came back as the Prime Minister"... 

I can’t help thinking that it could well be a better selection tool. Douglas Adams was right - those seeking election should automatically be disbarred.

The long gone days of mobile numbers beginning '04'.

As for 'Back o' Hill Ind. Est' surely that depends on which direction you approach the hill from?

Aye true. The cards went up the loft in '01 along with some other miscellaneous shite, but nothing really automotive to share in this thread at least.

I had a mobile in 1990 on cellnet , it started with 0860 , I don't remember 04. I thought 1988-90 was the start of mobiles.

I do remember the phone ringing in the services cafe  once and everybody looking at me when I answered it .

It was that embarrassing I can even remember where it was , Corley northbound

My cousin’s wife has just won local election in new broughton wrexham as in independent. Didn’t know she was standing, and my cousin is in North Carolina at the moment for his son’s graduation.

What's her manifesto then? Empty bins for all? That would be a winner round our way.

Round our way it'd be roundabouts without potholes

2 years ago the resurfaced our street , I swear there was nothing wrong with it 

I asked the site manger why they were doing it 

His reply , somebody on the council  probably lives down here. 

There a dip in the road , probably caused by mining subsidence from Parkside,  after the resurfacing it's still there FFS

I think the first 4 digits id'd the network. I was on cellnet, i guess early 90s, turned into BT then 02, my prefix was 0411 with the last 6 the same as I have today.

My new monitors mean I can browse the entire forum at once.

All are perfectly readable, each window is roughly the resolution of a normal 1080p screen.

It's great isn't it! You don't need one big window, just many tiny small ones all massive! 

Going into the office sucks as my programs open at their last size. So what was a small sensible window showing all of the content on my 4k screen suddenly spans across 2 1080 screens and vanishes into nowhere 😂

Then when I'm back at home everything's tiny

I wish I'd done it ages ago! There's two of them so I could have 8 sensibly sized browser windows open at any one time.

The only issue is if I maximise one them they're not hugely readable, entire paragraphs end up on one line! It's going to take a little bit of getting used to I think.

The reason I did the upgrade now is I've got so used to having a 4K screen attached to my work laptop (I bought the screen myself) that the 1080p ones just weren't comfortable to use anymore. It's amazing how a resolution and screen size that felt impossibly roomy when I got it can feel so cramped now. 100% scaling is nice for fitting as much as possible on the screen, but it's maybe a bit small for extended use, I'll try 125% and see how I get on.

I think we've reached the peak resolution of sensibly sized monitors now though, 8K might be a bit of an improvement, but I can't see anything past that actually being any more useable at sensible distances. Maybe one day once the prices come down a bit I'll get a couple of 40" 8K monitors!
