Randox. You don’t even have to do a FaceTime now…. Just done one now and took 15 mins to get the certificate

It’s a bit of a con tbh. They are the exact same tests as the NHS ones…. But have to put up with it for now I guess

Various documented compatability issues with airpods / Windoze / Teams on some laptops, need a Jabra dongle to get it all working.

Tbh, Jabra kit is always a solid choice.

I've got some brand new airpods in classified. I use them for work and they work a treat.

Any recommendations for a walking / hiking app that allows you to plan a route along public right of way bridleways / towpaths etc? Looking for some inspiration for taking the dog on longer walks (off the lead).

Outdoor Active I find is the best.

Google Maps works for me - have done a lot of Wales/Brecon Beacons and never had an issue.

Could also try the 'All Trails' app which is pretty good apparently.

There was a link posted on FUK years ago that gave free access to OS Maps but I can't find it using the search function I'm afraid.

Komoot? That will give you routes (for inspo) but don't know whether you can map out your own ones.

Thanks for the recommendations, tried Outdoor Active and it was really useful albeit did have to make a detour as the route I'd planned on the app ended up trying to take us through a private gated property.

Anyone had Labyrinthitis/Vertigo before? Fuck me, I feel constantly drunk, cant stand up straight and the room won't stop spinning unless I am perfectly still.

Waking up everyday feeling like I have a hangover is not nice, especially when I haven't even had a drink!

Hoping it goes soon

I've had it before, have you got some antibiotics?
