Power went out at 10am today,only our house affected.

Powercor guys came out an hour ago. Can't find the pit. Turns out the previous owners dumped a massive garden bed over the pit.

Just spent the last hour helping dig down 400mm to access the pit.

Also yukkas

We have an awesome fan light heater in our bathroom. When you turn the fan off before the lights it may or may not trip a separate light circuit in fuse box. Mostly seems to happen when it's freezing cold or raining outside as I have to walk around the house to get to the fuse box.

Ahh well shit, that's a bummer. Can't stretch it out?

Yeah sometimes I can get a bit overkill with the packaging haha, some stuff gets quite elaborate & in one case a box ended up being more tape than cardboard. :p
If it was shitty brand clamp I’d stretch it but it’s always good to have spares for a bike you haven’t brought yet :D

I think we’ve all done the more tape than box trick but had giggle at the size of box. Thanks for the quick postage!

Easy mix up the wire from the fan speed controller and connect it to the light and vice versa!
No offence to @ozzybmx and any other electrician on the forum but I deal with a lot of electricians in my day job (air conditioning). For the most part most of them struggle to read a wiring diagram and even mix up active neutral and earth.
But they are interchangeable

Either there is a thief on my street or AusPost fucked up.

@The Reverend kindly helped me out and sold me some dropouts needed to get my Banshee up and running, AusPost said they delivered on Mon, but no sight of them :(

Lodged an enquiry, but all I can do now is stare at the frame and just imagine riding it.

Might need to source some other dropouts..

Check your tracking and see if they took a photo if safe drop was selected. I had a parcel listed as delivered this week, I searched everywhere. Was going through the form of undelivered item when I found a photo of a neighbour up the streets front door. Winning for once

No such luck, says "left in a safe location" but I imagine thats the default. no photos. I was hoping by posting this I was going to spot it in the hedge or something, but another wander around the garden to make sure I haven't Hambo'd this seems to confirm its not here. Or in too safe a spot.

They should be always taking a photo if no one is home. If marked as delivered should be a box that says see where we left it. If not release your inner Karen on them.

You sure they are compatible with v3? I heard otherwise. But if they don’t turn up, I might be able to help you.

2.5 hours at an indoor kids play centre, I’m tapping out, Miss 5 you win. Please, please don’t rain tomorrow
They rally should have a licensed bar on those places.

When did bike shops stop hiring people that knew about bikes?

I didn’t think “ do you have a BB86 press fit roadie bottom bracket in stock?” was a particularly complicated question…
That is so many words man...
