Just had another letter, this time from the hip surgeon following my recent x-rays.
I have to have a MRI of my right hip (the worst one) but he thinks hip salvage surgery is probably the way forward. Due to my relatively young age he wants to avoid a hip replacement if possible. Apparently the problem is ‘Cam impingement occurs when the femoral…[Read more]
Thanks Ed, appreciated.
Hips and shoulders x-rayed on the 13th, still not had the result.
Got a letter in the post today saying I have an appointment on December the 4th for XR Humerus Lt. I see the rheumatolgy consultant on the 10th.
Letter had a franking mark of Monday so the hospital has processed my x-rays but they are not on the system the surgery uses yet. T…[Read more]
Dave, I wish you well.
If you haven’t already done it get the P.I.P and blue badge forms done ASAP.
Was supposed to get my x-ray results today, the surgery told me maybe Friday, maybe Friday next week. No idea in other words.
Nice one Dave.
That’s rough Dave. Is it related to your motorbike crash or just bad luck, like me? I had x-rays just over a week ago on my pelvis and both shoulders as they are increasingly giving me trouble. I’m seeing the consultant early next month and the surgeons whenever that’s going to be possible.
The job sounds like a great one.
Ed, I saw that this morning, half asleep.
Forgot about it until you just mentioned it.
The facts are simple, the treasury makes a shit load of motorists. They will claw that back after 20 30, one way or another.
I don’t object to paying for journeys I don’t need to do, as long as it’s a sensible, affordable, amount. And I pay once per…[Read more]
Ed, the local Tesco has had 4 chargers foe a while,they are within a reasonable distance of the shop but too far for me. They are only 7KW ones as well, the same power as a home wall box. So about 8 hours for a e 208. They are free though.
JCD, not long ago in France it was possible to get a brand new Renault Zoe for 10 euros a month due to a…[Read more]
So Boris has done it, no new petrol or diesel cars or vans in the UK from 2030.
Generally I think it’s a good idea but only 10 years to sort out the infrastructure is, IMO, nowhere near enough. Look at the state of broadband in rural areas still.
The cost needs to come down and the range needs to go up. A little reported fact is at motorway…[Read more]
Thanks again Dave.
When possible please give him my best wishes.
The Pfizer vaccine, as I understand it, will not be suitable for certain vulnerable people, ones with a lower than normal immune system for example. So that’s probably me.
As for who to vaccinate first, I have no idea what the best way to go about it is.
As for the vaccine itself, as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has ‘donated’ money to…[Read more]
Happy birthday both.
Thanks for that Dave.
Please wish him my best.
WOF, I’ve had really bad reactions to certain medication over the years.
I blacked out, bounced of a wall, tumbled down some concrete steps and aggressively fought the ambulance crew who came to take me for a checkup.
So I’m told. No idea at all. Lost 48 hours due to one dose of ‘safe’…[Read more]
PlaneMan replied to the topic Will the Political Establishment seek revenge on Trump? in the forum USA 3 weeks, 2 days ago
I honestly think Trump is insane.
The shite he’s been spouting is unbelievable.
His ‘supporters’ turning up armed outside the places where they are counting the votes is another level of lunacy. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they were hired thugs.
Ed, it’s fine.
Trump has said many times that COVID-19 is not a problem………
It’s not like he’s a complete rsole or anything.
How anyone serves on a sub is beyond me.
I went on one some 35 years ago when it docked in Barry for supplies. Claustrophobic doesn’t do it justice, the lack of space anywhere was a real shock to a lanky, skinny kid. How adults lived on that thing I’ll never understand.
Nice one Dave, the project is still going to happen just no idea when.
2020 can feck off.
After a few days of messing around I’ve come to some conclusions.
OpenShot does animated titles brilliantly, thanks to Blender. There are some available, maybe 15, and you can tweak them a bit.
KdenLive is more stable and I’m getting my head around how it works. So for now I’m using OpenShot for the titles, rendering them to the resolution I’m…[Read more]
Thanks for that Ed.
Spent most of the afternoon trying to gigure out what’s going on with video rendering, kdenlive was showing 5 hours to render the clip.
OpenShot wouldn’t use anything apart from Ogg.
Got fed up and re-installed Mint and started from scratch. Kdenlive rendered it using the 4K H265 preset in 30.64. Considering the file size…[Read more]
