    Fishing - Anybody doing any ?

    Dave Lane was fishing that swim ^ in his latest video (May Madness, an Island Adventure).

    Do you save money every month?

    Yes, currently invest about 12% of take home into S&S ISA and save 35-45% as cash depending on how disciplined I've been. My partner saves 30-50% cash. Eventually once we sell our flat to buy a house those percentages will roughly flip, although likely the investment amount will be less than the...

    Fishing - Anybody doing any ?

    I think Farlows has been well known for carp fishing since the 80's when it was already producing 30lb+ fish - I imagine it's been getting hammered as long as modern carp angling has existed to be honest. Even without 40's it's a 25 acre clear water gravel pit with an enormous amount of variety...

    Fishing - Anybody doing any ?

    Very nice fish, lake one for sure as there aren't any 40's in lake two! I think that's 'the' big common actually. I had a 33lb PB common from lake one when I went last year, was well pleased :D

    Fishing - Anybody doing any ?

    That looks epic, very envious! How did you get on with packing the boat? I can imagine myself ending up in the lake alongside my gear to be honest if my first attempt at using a barrow some years ago is anything to go by :D. Managed to get out bank holiday weekend, quick 24 hours at Farlows...

    Ukraine Invasion - Please do not post videos showing attacks/similar

    Well as their line is that it sank during a storm following a tragic accident how are they going to spin that into justification for escalating violence? Not like they have much left in their repertoire other than going nuclear anyway.

    Ukraine Invasion - Please do not post videos showing attacks/similar

    Yeah, sounds like the harpoons are just rumours at this stage with a few unreliable sites (DM, sun) claiming it's already happened. What do you mean? Sunk is sunk and the Ukrainians immediately claimed it was their missiles that caused it.

    I think the Neptune missile is a home grown Ukrainian design actually, that only came into service over the last year. Apparently they only have very small numbers of them and most likely can't build more due to their defence industry being destroyed at this point. I guess they were holding them...

    Sounds like the 'go **** yourself' guy got the last laugh there then :D!

    Current feel for the IT job market?

    In London somewhere north of £100k total comp (salary + bonus + stock) for an experienced engineer, with even grads and juniors getting close to £100k. Depends a bit on the company I guess, e.g. MS/Amazon seems to be not too far above the £100k mark whereas FB/Google/Palantir etc are quite a lot...

    I saw that, sounds pretty dire for them to be honest. It does seem a bit short sighted to not even begin the training process on better jets. Who's to say this war won't still be going on in 6 months or even a year? A bunch of new F-16's (?) and freshly trained pilots/maintenance crews could be...

    Ukraine Invasion - Please do not post videos showing attacks/similar

    I accidentally saw a photo (wish it was censored by twitter, hope it was faked somehow) of two dead families including children just now, apparently murdered in cold blood (caption suggested rape) rather than caught in crossfire. As more of this sort of thing comes out I suspect the numbers of...

    Ukraine Invasion - Please do not post videos showing attacks/similar

    Of course civilians are sadly going to get caught in the crossfire at times but it does appear that there's quite a lot of this type of blatant murdering happening. In one of the previously occupied towns the mayor + their family were executed and partially buried in a ditch with one stuffed...

    Shooting people in the back of the head whilst they are tied up is murder even if they were spies/combatants/whatever.

    Ukraine Invasion - Please do not post videos showing attacks/similar

    Seems like there's a lot of eye witness accounts, and there were journalists into those regions quickly after liberation. In the extremely unlikely event these atrocities were staged by Ukraine it almost wouldn't even matter because no one [of any import] believes a word the Russians say...

    Ukraine Invasion - Please do not post videos showing attacks/similar

    According to liveuamap and some other sources the Chernihiv region is already fully under Ukrainian control, and the Kyiv region has been for a day or so. There are apparently only a few remaining areas in the north with Russian forces present (the very north-east of the country).

    I saw an announcement (from the UK gov I think) that we/the US were sending Ukraine 'advanced' air defence equipment. Has it been said what this means exactly (perhaps purposefully not)? Maybe they are talking about the already announced/possibly in use Starstreak systems? I noticed also that...

    Poor Russia, always the victim, even when it's levelling the cities of another nation and murdering countless civilians.

    Apologies if already posted but there's a video out this morning of [allegedly] two Ukrainian air force helicopters blowing up an oil depot just inside Russia (Bolgorod). But some Russian official said a couple of days ago that Ukraine has no airforce left :cry: :trollface: Sounds like Russia...

    They might think the setup will work better with a higher fuel load/race conditions?
