My partners pop had the latest episode of the MAKE magazine in his shed last night, i had a quick squiz in it.

It had a bike which was turned into a portable drive in, it had a big projector thing with speakers in the back.

It also had a DIY thing on making your new bike look old, rusted and unwawnted for thieves. Pretty interesting.

I just watched that 80s paris-roubaix clip and I am awestruck. Phenomenal!

Currently downloading these three movies:
A Sunday in Hell - Overcoming - Hell on Wheels

(torrent files- download/install utorrent then open the file. duh :D)

you do realise that "une chute mortelle" means "a fatal fall"

unwritten rule with crash videos: when someone dies, that's going too far

Something like that for vehicles would be very handy in most metro areas and hospital carparks.

I think i saw one on TV.
