    New Rules

    Despite being a member for the last 13(!) years, I very rarely post here, but I still read the forum most days to keep abreast of what's happening at home, and in that respect it's a great resource to me. The sad fact remains though that almost every thread devolves very quickly now into sniping, infighting and abuse very quickly. Many thanks indeed to the moderators and decent posters who've put the legwork in over the years. Here's hoping MF can survive.

    Bikers - this ever happened to you?

    I forgot to fasten my helmet strap a couple of times, not long after I got my first bike, and the realisation of what I'd done (and the consequences of what it might have meant) shit me up so badly I've checked multiple times before and during rides ever since. It's entirely possible the guy just forgot to do it up after his last stop I suppose.
  3. @TheTeapot top marks! My username is derived from an ancient band I used to play in, the name of which was lifted from that very song.

    Edinburgh Fringe Festival

    All great places for food and excellent beer, reasonably central (Tollcross/Newington area, my usual haunts): The Hanging Bat, The Southern, Clerk's Bar, Holyrood 9a, The Ventoux, The Blackbird, Cloisters, then further into town Red Squirrel on Lothian Road is great, and I very much like the Oxford Bar and the Cambridge Bar too.

    Should Road Racing Be Banned?

    I enjoyed this particular gem: "I'll be glad when the internet loses some of its freedom, to be able to publicly display people dying for others entertainment is just sick." Well. Quite.

    Should Road Racing Be Banned?

    Pretty telling that the knee-jerk reaction is to remove the footage from the face of the earth rather than accept the reality of the continued human cost of road racing…

    Edinburgh Fringe Festival

    I live in Edinburgh and was here for the festival last year. Be prepared for many many people! You're probably a bit too late now for anything other than something quite far out, or tiny and super-expensive in the city centre. Thankfully though the transport links are actually decent (the Tram is largely irrelevant as it follows an existing Airport bus route but it's an option I guess). I think Lothian Buses ran later into the night last year to accommodate the festival crowd but you might need to cab it back if you're not on a main route. Worth checking out before you come over. http://lothianbuses.com There's plenty of shit areas you wouldn't want to be staying in, but loads of good ones too. You'd like Leith, which is where I work - lots of good pubs, restaurants, cafes etc and only a half hour stroll or 10 minute bus into the city centre. Drop me a PM if you've got any specific questions and I'll impart my wisdom for you!

    Chinese Restaurants

    Sounds good. Do they do spam fritters?
  13. My old N4 was stunning.
  14. It is hard to go back, definitely. I had an iPhone 4S until recently, and using the other half's iPad 2 is jarring. The Tesco stuff is fairly unobtrusive, which is nice, and I'm sure they'll be rooted easily enough if not now then soon.
  15. Have you seen one Slim? I had a very quick play with one here at lunch in Tesco and I thought for the price, the display was decent enough. Doubly so if you have the vouchers.
