Thanks man. She's slowly on the mend. It's worrying because she not only has osteoporosis but also terrible arthritis. So the wrong fall could well be her last. She did what she always does too. "Oh I just have a scratch on my leg". Yeah you mean the four big lumps missing out of your leg and the stitches you had to have.

Glad I went over now. I knew she would do that.

Back over tomorrow. I will try desperately to find the two or so hours this needs to get it finished. I want it at my place with two others. I've just been so busy messing around with computers and surround systems.... You know? the sort of stuff you start and then wish you hadn't.

I'd love to tbh. However I gotta be real.

October is closing in, and thus goes any deadlines for doing bikes. Sadly events have transpired lately and I just haven't had much of a chance to do bikes. I bought a new PC in April just before lockdown, and it has meant a big shake up of my computers etc. My NAS (network attached storage) over flowed and crashed, so I needed a new one. Me being me I couldn't just buy one, oh no. I had to take a mirror G4 mac and convert it into a server and then use it as a server.



Which took weeks not the days I thought it would.



It was totally worth it though :D

My old PC (keeping it for bedroom use) used to look like this.



That's my other hobby as you probably noticed. Any way, I built a new one and decided to upgrade the old one also but that went bad. I was sold a dead graphics card, so right now it looks like this.



I bought some new water cooling goodies and a replacement graphics card so I have to do that next. I keep nearly falling over it (it's in the kitchen).

So yeah, sadly bike time is done for this year. I may get up and fit all of the NOS Snafu parts and Profiles I bought for my STA, but anything to do with painting and etc is a no go now. I want to do the 2hip next and that needs paint.
