    Opening another can of worms....

    I really like The Expanse on Amazon. Its a refreshing change to see spaceships that follow the laws of physics. Not enjoying Picard as much as I would have liked. Am a big sci-fi fan, but the current writers of ST Discovery and Picard are not using original story ideas. (don't get me started on...

The I was called into the head of HR and told off for not going on coarses regularly to keep up my H&S training, apparently it was my fault I kept getting denied the...

    3d printer which to go for.

    you don't need a HEPA filter for PLA, would only need a filter for filaments that produce fumes like ABS.

Just got a full graphic smart display for my as well...

    3d printer which to go for.

    which ever printer you get, be prepared for a lot of time setting it up and fine tuning. don't expect that you will get amazing prints straight away. I got an Anet A8 in the end for personal use, its a ok starting block, helps you learn how to troubleshoot, (more failed prints than successes)...

    3d printer which to go for.

    Just going from how the X axis carriage is designed, the Ender Pro is better as it is using linear rails instead of rods, this gives a smoother travel for the axis. From when I was personally looking for a printer the creality range would have been my preferred choice, but had to do with a Prusa...

    Diary Jargon

    The best request I've ever had was for Bull sperm. After we looked into how much it would cost. I went to see the teacher to ask why they want the sperm, an NQT over heard and said she knew a guy who would supply human sperm for free. A regular request we used to get was for the HoD's special...
