    Unisex toilets. Another brilliant idea

    I hear it's due to "hovering", women who don't want to sit on the seat because of the piss on it. Of course they then just piss all over the seat...

    Hardware (network) advice please

    250Gb? I suggest you get a HP Microserver Gen10. Put an additional 8Gb of RAM in there. Add 3x drives to your liking for software RAID5 (these are pretty good). Then install the open NAS software of your choice (I prefer FreeNAS as it's pretty well used, but opinions vary), and setup SMB/CIFS sharing. Connect your workstations and transfer the data across and job done. You can then get it natively backing up to the cloud solution of your choice overnight. About £800 inc VAT (which I'm sure you can claim back). It will be pretty quiet and small; so very portable. Will also last you a fair old time. I have the gen8 under my desk, and it's virtually silent in normal operation, sounds a bit loud on initial start up though!

    If you just want it for file storage get a nas. Theres also the option to DIY as well, I got a hp microserver, put a USB drive in it (for the os) and a bunch of hard drives (4 x 6Tb), and put freenas ( on it. Basically it's an easy to manage appliance now and you can set it up to back up to the cloud as well.

    Moving Abroad Or In The UK Where Would You Go

    My plan is to relocate to Singapore (probably around the next scheduled general election). I'll adjust somewhat to working in probably the most westernised bit of Asia for a couple of years, then see what the rest of Asia has to offer.

    Where you going on holiday this year?

    Been to a fair few places in Asia (Philippines, Indonesia) on holiday, but this is a scouting trip to see if I can live & work there. Going to be a bit different from a holiday!

    Where you going on holiday this year?

    Currently off to Vietnam in April for 3.5 weeks, tempted to extend it as it will be prior to me starting a new job, maybe add Thailand, or may just add the Singapore trip I'm planning? Otherwise, planning a scouting trip to Singapore later in the year to check things out, will add somewhere else in asia for a proper holiday.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    Because the largest democratic mandate in British history was given to leave in 2016. The the remain side was clear that this meant no customs union, etc.

    Bye, UKIP

    Exactly, 2 years ago this would have been fine, but now... Shit just needs to get done, no time for this kind of petty politics, we've got bigger problems, urgent problems!
