  10. Thanks for the info. I've asked Caldwells what their view is on the long-term durability of their powder coating, it'll be interesting to see what they say.
  11. Do you know who manufactured the windows? Asking because powder coating vs. anodising (double-glazed portholes from Caldwell) is a decision I need to make in the near future... (if you don't want to name names publicly, please PM me)
  12. We had a cat in the local substation (11kV? 33kV?), which proved that our UPSs worked but also not for long enough... 😞 Leastways we think it was a cat, it's not easy to identify a pile of charcoal...

  14. I now get "Don't fall in!" every time I go out for a ride...

  17. I think you have to fall in once from each mode of transport to be fully qualified. I've only fallen in off a boat once in forty years. Did it properly though -- on Xmas day, after a pub session, *through* the ice... 😞 Never fallen into the cut from a car, train or plane though -- must try harder... 😉

  19. As you do, superba vehentem equitem 😉 So how much towpath cycling *do* you do? If you've clocked up 50,000 miles without an incident then that is indeed admirable 🙂

  21. Only an insect? You were lucky, you should see what mess a slug on the back of a dishwasher PCB can do... 😞

  24. I'm so glad that your superior cycling skills mean that you have never fallen into the canal, mine are obviously inferior... 😞 Slow down, bell, loud voice, do all that -- so how would you cope when a pedestrian steps sideways so you can pass (fairly slowly) on the hedge side, and there's a pointed cut-off branch stub hidden amongst the foliage right at eye level which you spot just before it takes your eye out. Do your superior skills/reaction time/brakes allow you to react and stop instantly, or do you have a diamond-coated eyeball so it wouldn't hurt you? Or is it possible that you too would swerve to avoid it and end up in the cut? Hindsight is wonderful but not very helpful at the time... 😉 Incidentally, how many miles of canal towpath cycling (with consequent accident potential) do you do -- as a rough benchmark, more or less than a thousand per year?
