Its just occurred to me while watching the vid that I can drill 2 more holes in the box so you can move the legs from portrait to landscape aswell - I'm a deadset genius - or I could just add another set of legs - yeah I'll probably just add another set of legs

Did you just come up with an idea on how to improve accuracy that couldnt wait till morning - and the globes had just gone out on your verandah light.

A free standing light - some glow tubes and tape will get you out of that bind

I'd avoided Gortex running shoes for along time because I thought my feet would get to hot while riding - but they dont. I used to think Gortex being "breathable" was just clever marketing - I'm not sure how true it all is but there must be some truth to it - Heres the latest addition to the stable.

p.s. before making any rash purchases after a recent "blow out" - make sure the "blow out" can't be fixed with a few cents worth of shoe goo

Yeah - with the way shoes are made these days - its $18 well spent. Just dont forget to lube the thread with Vaseline or the lid isnt coming off the next time you need it

I spend a bit of time on river banks, so that means standing on weird angles and placing undue stress on the seams.

Needed a cover for my new sounder to protect it from salt water. Got a price for some Perspex to be made up $375 was the cheapest. So sitting in the shed one night looking at a $2 plastic box from the reject shop. That'll work some flat black paint and no one will be the wiser. At work will throw up a pic later

Yeah I was recently pricing a 3mm perspex sheet, 65cm by 34cm and it was about $30 from a picture framing business, so it wouldnt be the cheapest option. The same dimensions in a 2mm glass panel was $14.

JB2020 made up his own with a heat gun and a jigsaw and it turned out great - but a 2 dollar plastic tub is the route I'd probably take aswell

Just looked up what perspex would cost from a specialist.

a 65cm by 35cm by 3mm sheet was $16.50

I'm probably going to have to add IT professional to my list of stuff I've nailed.

My computer was running slow, so I did all the usual stuff.

Delete history - refresh Mozilla Firefox -delete heaps of Vids I'd downloaded from youtube - empty my trashcan and check my add ons.

But this time it wasnt working - So I started up a task manager and my CPU was running at 100%.

Googled the issue and it said you should press the button that says "show processes from all users" then find what's eating all your CPU

Turns out my AVG free virus protection was eating up between 50% and 100% of my CPU.

So I googled that and its said to go to AVG website and "repair" AVG - then restart the computer.

Did all that - and check it out - CPU is down from 100% to 7% and the computer is running like a dream

It seems that word has got out that I'm quickly becoming one of the worlds most accurate casters and someone doesnt like it.

They've even gone to the trouble of training some special operatives to sabotage my practice casting sessions
