ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

Celebrate The Good Things!

Reasons to be Cheerfully Part 4 (we all know the tune)

Joe on his digger, Ed with his vids and nailgun
Nick on the pipes, Jeremy on the telly and jelly
Builds in Wales, house sales in Scotland, Devon
U-Value quandaries, solid walls and leaky homes

We sold our house last week and we will soon have money to start the new build.

Even better, if I ask a silly question here I don't get asked if I'm qualified or told to bugger off if I'm not ( the names of other forums have been deleted to protect the guilty).

And the sun is shining and its POETS day.

Edit : typo

There's another 5 years worth of Ebuild chat there alone ;)

Well a year in and I still have all my appendages, so that's something.

I'm getting some new battery jumper cables for my off-grid system Real Soon Now (come on Mr Postman), the sun is shining (well, in between bursts of sleet), and I have had two huge fun nights out this week (though way too much was drunk)!

Not to mention the fact that I'm being given a really good chance to make the world a better place with OpenTRV... B^>

You could play Charades on another Thread, I will leave you to work out which one

Sorry, too knackered to even try working it out, especially with having to prepare to photograph the local WI fashion show because their regular photographer is ill. It's not the prospect that fills me with dread but the thought of what happens tomorrow if I've made someone's bum "look too big in this".

So I'll wait for tomorrow to find out if there is anything to celebrate about waking up. :rolleyes:

Joiner, what do you mean by '"if I made anybody's bum look big in this" :)

All people want is bit of digital flattery, not a photograph.

Hence the Photoshop Warp tool
Nobody ever once complained when I took a few inches off their waist, or gently smoothed a wrinkle here and there.

Subtly done, think of it as paying the subject a compliment
