    Hi, I'm interested

    Today I Received.....

    Life has been getting on top of me but hopefully I'll be posting an update video soon 😊😘

    Grand Solar Minimum

    I have absolutely no interest in debating this (please don't @ me), but here's some information if anybody is interested: Solar minima refer to changes in the activity in the upper levels of the sun's atmosphere. A reduction in the number of sunspots doesn't mean the sun gets cooler (actually sunspots are typically at a lower temperature than the rest of the outer layers of the sun). It's an 11-ish year cycle and does have some effect on the magnetosphere (so things like auroras become a bit more common) but doesn't have any real impact on climate or weather patterns. (bear in mind reductions in solar activity mean changes in the patterns on the sun's surface, not that it suddenly gets dramatically hotter or colder). Oh, and Professor Zharkova's research makes precisely zero mention of any change to the climate. "In the press release, we didn’t say anything about climate change" (source: https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2015/07/16/scientists-dispute-ice-age-warnings/30257409/ https://www.iflscience.com/environment/mini-ice-age-hoopla-giant-failure-science-communication/) Which is probably appropriate seeing as she's a professor of mathematics, not a climatologist or astrophysicist. As for Jupiter/Saturn ragging the Earth's orbit further out. Sorry, but that's just bunkum. They're too far away to have such a drastic effect on the Earth's orbit. Plus, the Earth's orbit has gone unchanged for billions of years, there's no 'alignment' of planets that is going to suddenly cause a drastic change in orbit, not least because we've all been swinging around the sun long enough that any such combination will have happened many times before. Things like the planet's albedo have a much greater impact on temperatures than solar minima and the position of the gas giants. Denying climate change can be extremely appealing. In particular surviving a colder climate is something an individual can make preparations for, which is easier to get one's head around than the massive decarbonisation necessary to avoid apocalyptic climate scenarios. But, frankly, anecdotal evidence and cherry-picked data are no match to the extremely well documented pattern of increasing global temperatures and overwhelming scientific consensus that climate change is real, is the result of human activity, and will be catastrophic unless major changes occur within our generation.

    Lets talk watches!

    Some beautiful timepieces here. I'm generally too rough with my hands to be trusted with something so nice. I have two watches, one extremely battered dress watch from my grandfather. I also have a wind-up pocket watch with a waving chairman Mao inside

    You know what grinds my gears?

    An insufficiently depressed clutch pedal?

    I'm developing a ping testing app

    This sounds fantastic. I'll have a look at downloading and giving it a play

    Today I bought.....

    Just pulled the trigger on another Austrian 1 Ducat. First PM purchase in at least two months, felt so good

    Ack! Sorry to have been away so long, but exciting to see the new group order is up 😄 I'll be sending over a shopping list this weekend.
