Exactly. I have my entire music library on my player, I don't really stream music much and to me it just sounds better. I also detox from my phone on a regular basis so there are plenty of times I don't have it with me so having a dedicated music player makes sense. I see it as an investment too, my last Walkman MP3 player lasted over a decade so I'm willing to pay a bit more for it.

Serious question. Could you print onto a polo shirt?
I've got a couple of beer money hobbies I sell merchandise for, and I'm looking at t-shirts and polos.

Exactly, i don't want to end up running the battery down unnecessarily (especially when i've been out travelling around in the good old days before everything went to hell), and with my phone, i'm still using the old smaller memory card i had with my last phone as i didn't want to end up losing some of the photos i have on it (i can't plug it into the pc either as my card reader doesn't work anymore, plus there's also the fact that i can't be arsed to do anything else about it).

A polo should work if it's white or light colour, or black on any colour, otherwise obviously you get a colour shift as there's no white ink in this system. Same for all fabric it's basically white and light colours only if you ignore the "hack" for printing black on anything.

I'd try to find a tight pique fabric because it's less texture.

The printer works like a spray nozzle so it doesn't mind printing on a texture fabric.

And of course I can use my other methods if it's something else. Vinyl actually works quite well on a polo albeit for solid colour stuff and its much more labour intensive.

Got a new cactus cutting (a piece off from a bigger cactus plant which you can use to grow more cactus). This is an Opuntia Robusta also know as the Silver Dollar or the Wheel cactus. Its massive about 17 inches long! Its a great source of food for Tortoises too so my 90 year old tortoise should love it when it starts producing new pads. Also edible fruits appear in the summer and the pads can be used for cooking and making salads.

I believe she is around 90. My sister found her lost on a road about ten years ago but no one claimed her. Took her to the vet who at the time said she is probably around 80 years old. She lives in my parents back garden all year round! At the moment she is hibernating not sure where though, she just digs a hole and disappears from late October to mid March every year.

Heres is photo of her from last year

Whatever shade of colour that cactus is, it unnerves the strawberry float out of me. Seriously. I HATE that colour.

Cute tortoise though :wub:

Thanks glad you all like my tortoise :)

The colour and size is what I like most about this Opuntia cactus. Well I like any cactus with a shade of blue like that. Dunno why but it's a bit different to the usual green cacti.

Can't wait to visit the actual store i got it from in Devon when lockdown is over.

Completely forgot about the huge order I put in with New Era. After seeing the huge box waiting for me on couch: did someone accidentally send me an extra PS5?

I think Mafro asked me how many caps I now own...

30. Two of which are out of rotation and I now never wear.

Yup. I never wear the same cap twice in-a-row.

One of the two is too large. The other I've just completely gone off on.
