    So I found myself in a Brixton cafe within earshot of an 'lifecoach entrepreneur' dispensing a litany of positive messages to his pupil. Rarely have I heard such a load of fucking bollocks. Repeating hackneyed uplifting tosh does not add any weight to the bullshit message, but that seemed to be the main theme. Aaargh!

    It's a Panasonic HD 24". Around 7 years old. Thanks.

    Yes that's classic Panasonic PSU behaviour aka the blinking red light of death. Unfortunately I have no experience of fixing them as we just RMA when they turn up like that.

    RMA? PSU?

    What's the model number? Google that and 'power supply repair' and see what you get.

    This has probably been asked before, but does anyone know if the rat-inna-bun hot dog people by the tube are licensed? I don't see scores on the doors.

    Highly unlikely, I'd wager. I posted up about them before and they appeared to operating in the same way as all the other dodgy firms, complete with lurking lookout/muscle.

    Ahhh thanks. That article though...what a self satisfied, partronising, posho who knows nothing of South london or hip hop. Anyway, she bigged them up so that’s good. I’m interested to know cos I know Chuck D was there last year with my favourite ever hip hop MC Rodney P of London Posse. They do a lot of gigs there. That’s why I’m drawn to it. Their prices seem reasonable as well and nice that it’s family run by the sounds of it.

    I first knew the journalist over 20 years ago. She has well known issues - which she has constantly and solipsistically written about - but you're right, she is fucking patronising and annoying

    Oh and the owner Michael Lythgoe? Why he's the edgy, hip-hop loving, streetwise, gangsta managing director of an "intimate team of estate agent professionals ensuring that personal touch." Keepin' it real! BOOM!

    The article is so patronising. The one thing that resonates with me is where she moans about the restaurant Beast, the most ridiculously overpriced, rip off, stuck up, wanky restaurant I've ever had the misfortune to go to. And the food wasn't that good at all..

    So it’s not family run then?

    The worst bit of the article is her opinion on people with long, fake nails. I would say boarding on racist to a degree.

    Nothing like a bit of ghoul tourism. It'll be like those tours of Hollywood mansions before you know it.

    Nearly got knocked over on the street crossing on Brixton Road by three chorting yoof-twats on scooters roaring through a red light. They missed the terrified old lady in front of me by inches. They're apparently pretty much free to do as they please as the cops rarely give chase these days. :/

    Lizzy Mac - I'm loving FGY. I've been three times this week...the classes are excellent...the teachers are really cool, not the usual hippy, fluffy types you get in most yoga classes...they even play decent music..we had d n b today! Loving it is an understatement...I have a spring in my step...loads of energy and my skin feels amazing. £39 for 30 days it's well worth it, works out at £1,30 per class and I get to take a friend to one class for free...prices after the 30 days are competitive and I don't think I'll be able to stop now...I'd never thought I'd say I was addicted to exercise but with this I definitely am. Thanks for the tip.:D

    Who knew? I will do as many as I can in the 30 days and then maybe once a week or fortnight.
    It makes me feel amazing. And so bendy. Hardly anyone believes me when I tell them so I am pleased that you did
    : ) and have enjoyed it.
