In office chair

A daunting journey

I'm heading off by bus this morning to the People's Republic of Boltonia to look at an exotic piece of internetworking hardware. If I don't make it out again, divide my stuff amongst yourselves.

ETA:
The journey took three hours each way including waiting around for buses, and the walk from Bolton bus station to the ex-mill the networking kit was in. Considering Bolton is only 25 miles away from Burnley, that's an average of not much better than 8MPH. I really need to get Fenchurch on the road soon...

Here's a picture of a couple of gasometers in Bolton:

Worryingly they looked like they were about to collapse in a pile of rust, and there was a faint whiff of leaking gas in the area.

Whoops

Remember the door I recently welded a new bottom on? I just dropped it from bench-height while turning it around to spray zinc-primer on the other side. It fell straight down like a guillotine blade.

Morris Minor door one, laminate flooring nil.

At least I have proof now that my welding is sound :)
