Owens of Solihull

I just want to take a moment to commend to you a most wonderful ironmongers shop, H.L. Owen of Station Road, Solihull. Well worth a visit! I haven’t yet had a case where I asked for something and they didn’t have it – on Saturday it was car body repair mesh and an M2 tap, to aid in construction of our new diesel for the garden railway.


Poor UI design

I got a little message yesterday asking me to install a newer version of the Java Runtime Environment. Poking around in the options to see how to get it to leave me alone, I came across this stunningly bad bit of UI design:


What on earth does “the most updated version” mean? Or “on the day 0 of each month”?!
