@Bhaal_Spawn Se also this Half Man Half Biscuit lyric - “There are questions in corners of my mind that lurk, like how do the road gritters get to work? Answer me that and you could win a cruise, here’s Judie Tzuke to take us up to the news.”

@forelioned Aye, the chrome stuff is nice. I've got a half-height unit in my office with my Sharp MZs on. I was lucky in that half my racking came from work when they closed a building down, it's proper industrial stuff.

@forelioned There’s 2 more where those came from 😄 Pleased I discovered a source of ‘proper’ shelving for them even though a bit of modification and strengthening is needed for my use. Currently the other 2 are shelved with flooring chipboard that’s 20yo and VERY warped.

@RetroBC_Pete :) I could easily lie on those shelves now. Oh wait ISWYM. 'Brains are staying on the shelves they're already on, just need to schlep them down there. That'll be fun.

This weekend’s work was building this little beauty. Making the shelves was a bit more of a challenge than I was expecting but with jigsaw, 2 drills and a supply of cut timber for strength it was done in only a few hours. Yay powertools.

@PaulieHughes Funnily enough last night I was watching an @ashens presentation at the Norwich Gaming Festival from a couple of years ago where he railed against this bastard child of a squint and a hangover.

@svenpetersen191 @LeftovrBeefcake @RetroWizzard I use both. Sometimes the Brillo just can’t do a proper cleaning job like the sponge can do. Maybe that’s just my Brillo of course.

@ZZleeZZ They’re 47nF 50V SMD caps in a through hole package. I’m also interested in what they’re actually called! Nothing to stop you using ‘normal’ axial electrolytics of course.
