  1. Gigs 2013

    Got tickets to see the postal service in may. It'll be their first tour in 10 years, I can hardly wait!
  2. Police and Crime Commissioner Elections

    There is a bye election here as my mp decided he wants to be a pcc instead. So i voted in the bye election and spoiled my ballot in pcc. Really don't see the point of it.
  3. Solar roof panels..

    You are going to struggle to explain electronics to Wolfy since he doesn't believe atoms let alone sub atomic particles like electrons.
  4. Solar roof panels..

    I looked at it as an investment, the risks wereto high to justify the outlay. I moved out of that house 2 years later and would have taken a huge loss on the solar panels including any increase they would've given in value on the property. The problem with solar and wind is they are still too expensive for normal households up front. The payback time is too long. I care more about having a good holiday this year then having slightly reduced energy bills for the next few years. Unless you are certain you will stay where you live now for the next 10-20 years or an strong eco hippy it's not worth it.
  5. Solar roof panels..

    I looked at the finance of these a while ago. I figured out it would take about 10 years for them to reach the break even point. Given they are expected to last about 20 years you can make a bit on them in the long term but you will be out of pocket for the first 10 years or so. You have to look at what you pay for electric and what the panels will produce. You get paid for any excess that feeds back into the grid. I was living in Plymouth when I looked at them and I would only be exporting power to the grid for 1 or 2 months a year. Would've been none this summer. So would have jusbja reduced bills. I didn't go for them as I didnt think I'd stay in the house for 10 years.
  6. What are you drinking?

    I had a look on the internet and it normally retails at £28-£33. It would be very pricey for what it is at £40. £20 is a bargain for it though. I thought booths was independent. Just a small supermarket chain from Lancashire. Haven't seen them anywhere outside the north west anyway.
  7. What are you drinking?

    I got the Tobermory 10 from booths for £20. It's not very refined and doesn't have a strong flavour but is still nice. Well worth £20. Got a Jura superstition from sainsburys for £24 and have been really enjoying that.
  8. Happy Halloween!

    Yeh, the M60 is chaos today. When I came home on the M62 the queue to get onto the M60 stretched back to Warrington, and that was about 90 minutes ago.
  9. money and happiness

    Money makes life easier, not necessarily happier. t's friends, family and relationships that make you happy.
  10. Happy Halloween!

    I shall be whipping up a nice batch of toffee onions in case any little scamps chap on my door tonight.
  11. Pet Hates!

    People who slow down as they overtake lorries on the motorway. just don't understand why they do it. Going 70mph in lane 3 then come up to pass a lorry overtaking something else and they slow down to 60 as they pass then it then speed up again.

    So far you have only asked generic questions on the sub reactor which is all not protectively marked. Its the details that are classified e.g. temperatures, pressures, designs, materials, With the hydrogen you are getting into details, so the info is protected.
  13. Moon Landings

    There are a number of mechanisms used to handle hydrogen on a sub reactor system, but you are getting into the technical details now which are classified so I can't say anything on that issue.
  14. SSD

    I only went for it on the laptop for the power and noise. I don't really notice any difference between my laptop and desktop on boot times or performance but the desktop is a lot more powerful as the laptop is fairly old now so it may just be down to that.
