  1. At present the government send vehicle (tax) licence reminders to electric vehicle owners, and they still have to go through the rigmarole of renewing each year. All for the princely sum of £0.00. This is probably an effort to cover at least some of the admin costs.
  2. Soon he can reassure himself that jail is not jail.

    I guess if anyone knows how to burn a bridge...
  4. I've got a couple of old SAS drives (3.5in) that I'd like to get some data off - does anyone have anything suitable they can lend me? Has to be HBA and not a RAID card (or capable of doing JBOD). Oh, and leads too, if it's a card!
  5. Bit tricky to do instrument approaches on a field of grass.
  6. All flights have to make weight and balance calculations. The cockup was in the planning and fueling, not the length of the runway.

    Oh, not that again.

  11. Well, it's certainly likely that if you have had enjoyment from using cannabis recreationally in the past, you're going to see the topic in a way differently to people who haven't but I don't think you're the sort of person to post like the OP, thebees. In my time, I've met a few people who use cannabis, some of them daily users. It's interesting how much they're strangely keen on conspiracy theories too. They love all the David Icke stuff, moon landings, chemtrails and all that. So, when I see a big post of reportedly credible links like the one above - it reads like a shout-out against the conspiracy against cannabis use. And why are they interested in a conspiracy against cannabis amongst all the other wrongs in clinical trials and big pharma companies? Fairly obvious really - they use it. Usually the poster isn't that interested in misapplications and skewed logic of pharmaceutical trials - Bad Science is quite a good book about that sort of thing, by Ben Goldacre.
  12. Is there anyone out there who posts this feverishly about cannabis who isn't on the stuff?
  13. Not sure how I feel about this having spent a year in Guernsey recently. Cost of living much higher, businesses more difficult to set up with their French laws and the like, operating costs probably similar or more costly, housing costs astronomical.. My main question is are we comparing apples with apples here? What offshore island is getting things right compared to us?
