nipped in to buy a few little bits and models as a peace out

only place for miles and miles where you can just drop in to get odd bits, rip another to amazon


That's so sad :(

There used to be several of that kind of place near me when I grew up, which all just became generic tat newsagents and then eventually closed.

That is sad. There's one of these not far from us and I'm amazed it's still going - must be a similar situation to the one near False in that it's costing them little to keep it running but anyone new coming in would be screwed. :(

lucky girl

Tamiya is the shiz, but I also rate Revell. Airfix/Humbrol is very hit and miss, it depends if you get a new mould or one from the 60s etc. which usually have awful instructions (such as missing all text so just exploded diagrams with no directions at all) and flashing etc.

Sad about the shop but yeah Amazon, ridiculous amounts of stock they can afford to hoard but also supporting lots of small sellers on Marketplace so that's partly to do with it (some large proportion of the stuff on Amazon is marketplace or fulfilled by amazon so the business owner sends their product into their warehouses in batches).

It is viable in some rare formats though, tabletop gaming and D&D etc. needs associated stuff so gaming parlours, LAN etc. to scoop up all the nerds, in a city, there's one an old friend from computing class runs called Dice Saloon in Brighton. Check it out, their prices are actually pretty fair although their online shop could use some work (nobody is uploading product images) and they have some distribution rights on stuff like bases, scenery, table mats etc. Good for paints and non-citadel stuff, but not really any traditional model kits (all tabletop).

I think it's telling the GW in Brighton has been renamed "Warhammer" though, it's all anyone's ever called it so I'm not sure why they waited so long. Anyone else seen that? Or maybe it went independent, no idea (they'd still ned permission to use that trademark surely?)

Bought a new RaspberryPi and some electronics stuff. I want to make a automatic plant growing system.

Have you heard of the parallela? It's a 16 core RISC microcomputer like the raspberry pi running Linux, it's a completely new architecture designed for supercomputer style parallel processing. The thing is this is exploitable by someone who knows bare metal level C and assembly etc so there's not a great deal I can do with it. Let me know if you're interested.

They normally go for around £100, I have two but no idea what to do with them. Someone gave me a bunch of stuff including about 12 microduinos and 5 Spark cores (now called Photons). A few Onion Omegas as well. I've only used arduous before but I'm probably going to do some networked sound installation stuff that fills a room because most of these modern boards have wifi built it. I also have a few Xbee Bluetooth modules so useful for RC robotics etc.

Hmm, I am quite interested what would you want for them?

Are the Spark cores the systems that Sun use to make before they were taken over by Oracle?
