    Is everything the worst?
  • I find it easy to have this mindset too. Sometimes it's outright depressing.

    But I think a lot of this is a result of the media having given up on reporting good news.

    Try ignoring the news for a while and you may feel better.

  • Were zx spectrum +2 keyboards disgusting to type on?
  • I had a +3. At the time it was much better than rubber 48K keys.

  • Some reflections on the cost of shaving soap.
  • I don't call wet shaving with a DE a hobby, but I'm pretty sure it's saving me money compared to buying mach 3 blades and cans of shaving foam.

    But I do it your grandpa's way though. I shave my head 2 or 3 times a week. I have one DE shaver. I use the same soap, bowl and brush every time. A blade lasts me 2 or 3 shaves.

    I get good results and it feels good. I only spend on shaving supplies maybe twice a year because I bulk buy blades and soap.

    What was your first operating system or Linux Distribution?
  • If you could call it an OS, ZX spectrum basic was my first. My first Linux was Slackware 6 or 7 installed from a string of floppies. Good times.

    EDPM vs Fibreglass for a flat roof

    Hi,

    Any of you folks know about EDPM vs Fibreglass roofing.

    I need to make a choice for a property extension in the UK. I expect rain, a few hot days, more rain, more rain, and some ice.

    The roof won't be load bearing (people won't be walking on it).

    Seems like every other website has differing opinions on what's best. I guess because everyone is selling something.

    Any impartial opinions on what you'd use?

    Cheers
