    Guys, it's ok. We have a safe space

    Take a leaf from Sydney's road system. Have the mens/ladies blocks built in a row with a movable partition in the middle. The cubicle doors are controlled such that they can only be occupied from outer to inner in order for each sex. The movable partition can shift along if one set of dunnies becomes full, borrowing from the other sex, then shift back towards the middle as cubicles are freed up again.

    Fair dinks I thought I'd be the odd one out with lack of iron usage but seems it could be the norm around here. I used to actually almost enjoy it decades ago and for a time worked it into my routine but it fairly quickly became another one of those dreaded chores.

    30 years ago it was almost to that point. But I fairly quickly deduced what needed it and what didn't.

    My leg and the last 2 months

    The ones around here aren't that bad. I've found though that generally the older roads/paths had the greater incline. A lot of the roads and paths around older areas here have been reworked I'd think - they used to have pretty severe camber but it's been reduced. There's a simple formula for roof gutter drainage, I'm fairly sure it's something like a few mm every 10 metres. e.g. https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-35.3300785,149.1432145,3a,75y,314.9h,81.03t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sw13mNsqmAlJhsHXGOFSYyA!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo0.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3Dw13mNsqmAlJhsHXGOFSYyA%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D57.506527%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656

    I bought an $8 iron about 2-3 years ago. Yesterday arvo used it for about the 4th time.
  6. I've not even bothered to install WinZip which shows how much I don't like the newer versions. As an aside... really nice that recent releases of Windows 10 now support opening ISOs directly into a virtual drive without need for a 3rd party bit of software to do it.

    cold boot issues

    Network shouldn't make a difference to boot but it's worth looking at the Bios settings to ensure PXE and network stuff isn't in the boot order as potentially it could slow it down. Additional to that make sure stuff like wake on LAN isn't enabled. I've got an old machine that misbehaves too, it works better if a decent PSU is used but the root cause is likely MOSFETs going bad. Modern boards usually have an array of them to cater for the various CPU voltages possible and when they age and start to fail, intermittent statup failures can be a symptom.

    I think they are... I don't iron the things anyway, part of the reason to wear them.

    The cheap stuff at Lowes is usually pretty crap but the higher priced stuff is OK. Finally found the Cougars quick dry polo shirts there earlier in the week - I'd bought one about 18 months ago and it's so good I've kept an eye out but forgot where I'd bought it. They had them on clearance this week, couldn't find the exact one I wanted but got a couple of different styled ones at 20 bucks each.
  10. I suppose it does have some pluses - and it's not extolling the virtues of unisex toilets with the subversive objective of inflicting gender fluidity acceptance on the whole population.

    What's on your mind?

    C'mon, we've known that stuff for years. Haven't you ever watched Batman?

    I'm surprised the SJW brigade hasn't proposed squat dunnies on the basis that some cultures squat when they drop the Manly supporters off at the pool.

    I bought a medium duty Rivers pair about a year ago for walking. At first they were torture, gave me nasty blisters on the little toes. Now they're pretty good. Expanded to suit my feet and reasonably comfortable. But I share the gripe of the shoddy construction and poor fit. 25 years ago you could get half-sizes which for me are great. The "standard" sizes are a joke. Almost always too narrow and tight. By the time they stretch and wear in to suit your feet they're usually half way through their useful life.
