Thanks gents!  I've had to sell a lot of things to get the money. :thumbsdown:

Still, it looks like a beast of a laptop.  I bought an MSI GE70 2OE-238UK.

For anyone who likes these things it has the following:- Intel Core i7 4700MQ 2.4GHz Processor, 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card, USB 3.0, HDMI, Bluetooth, 4x 2W HD Speakers, DVD-RW, Windows 8.

1TB HDD!!  :jawdropping:   Don't forget to change for footnote....  :D

Problem with these huge SDD/HDD gizmos is that they need to/should be backed up and that's going to take a a fair while.

I have a cloud copy of my important stuff and my clever other half encrypts it so it's secure too.

Apologies going  :offtopicsign:

Just sold my old Canon 85mm lens on eBay for 112 :bounce:

Sad to see the old favourite go, but that's a welcome injection for the N gauge fund :thumbsup:

Strange redhead found on Dave G's lawn!



This is the second visit from our local redhead but I'm not sure which 'version' it is.

It made a decent meal from whatever it found in the grass and stayed for a good 10 minutes or so.

Yep, I think its a Green Woodpecker.
Did you take that 2nd photo Leo1961?
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I think the one in the first photo has been gone over with weathering powders ;)

No such luck to be able to take that sort of photo here  :(

A quick Google search revealed a close match to your original though  :)

Eh ?  What do you mean, "which version" ?  Species or sex ?

Def a green woodpecker (rarely seen in my garden, but they're in the area), probably earing ants or chafer bugs.
