    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    No
    Every calls a winner.

    Never answer a call if I don't have a name to match incoming call.

    I just let it ring let it ring let it ring .

    Err there is a brilliant bus (and more recently tram) service to/from the airport and has been more or less for ever. I commuted London to Edinburgh for nearly 10 years and only flew because by catching the first flight on a Monday I could get to the office for about 9.30 - the first train didn't arrive until lunchtime. Price wise there wasn't much in it if you booked well in advance but the "turn up and go" price on the train is simply stupid.

    I really don't understand why people don't use the bus more - people I know who have moved to London know absolutely nothing about its geography because they only ever use the tube or the overground because its easy but the bus goes literally everywhere.

    I must have travelled pre more or less for ever. I think that to go for a meeting for the day the train was a bit long winded as well. I did have (back then) a Virgin train account and I agree if you prebooked well in advance you could get a decent deal. For business "can you do next week" the train was (I guess still is) a non starter.

    I agree that bus travel is underated and overlooked. Coach for inter city in particular can be quite a decent cost and if it stops near where you want to be it is not a bad way to travel either. The Achilles heel is if you are a bit off the main routes. Where I currently live there is no bus route. You would need to walk about a kilometer to the bus route. There is a free bus service from the industrial estate into and out of Poole for the workforce as a result of the business improvement scheme (which I pay extra rates for).

    Back "home" in Montpellier the bus service is good and you can travel out to the beach easily. Free or subsidised for old farts same as here. The new tram system is good as well. I really must get up to Edinburgh to see how it works up there. Sadly it is as far and time-costly to go to Edinburgh as to Montpellier. I do like Scotland.

    I was considering getting another 3D printer for work. I went to the site I buy them from and the price has gone from 200 to 400 since I bought the same model in June this year! The posh fast printer that I have one of has gone from 400 to 560 - fast but it likes to find new ways of dying hence the thought of replacing it. I will stick with just what I have given that price increase and get some spares in - the printers will be redundant once I get the injection mould sorted out in a few months except for prototyping items.

    A customer has dumped their cat on me the day after a lump removing operation and fecked off to Australia for a month. The cat is has been supplied with a fabric cone of shame that is the size of a dress and constantly trips it up - once I realised he couldn't get through the cat flap with it, I had to swap it for a shorter foam one because the choice otherwise was no heating in the cabin so the door could be open, or trying to stuff the litter tray in there overnight. He's also not supposed to climb anything higher than 4 inches tall for 10 days, so all the furniture and shelves had to come out of the pen. The first thing he did was climb the mesh front of the pen (in the dress!) and attempt to leap between the rafters. Unsuccessfully, but I managed to catch him. The furniture is now back in, many small climbs are better than one big one. I am tired.

    I got overconfident while mapping the seagrass in Essex today and ended up face down in the lovely mud with both hands up to the elbows. Luckily no witnesses, but it did mean I had to thrash around to get upright again. Was feeling very sad about not really being able to get hot chips from the van in the car park after the wind freeze dried me, but then saw the man go for a waz out the back and then pop back in to serve people with warm knob grease still on his hands, so...

    Looks like we are losing this forum. A great shame, I will miss the banter. Thanks to all who have made it work over the years.

    Quite. I too will miss the gentle piss taking though my kids seem to be getting the idea as time passes - other fora seem to be either pretty stuffy or bare knuckle fighting pits compared - they lack the humour of this place.
