Inner side of my left knee feels like its on fire, no bumps or knocks but since friday its been proper b*stard, any pressure from the outside of the knee makes it worse,. no swelling or **** all
trouble is I moved gaff 14 months ago and still have not signed on with a local quack, expecting that to be more painful than the knee itself.
Might have to do the typical bloke thing and see if it repairs itself :D

Seriously, that could be a bit dodgy.I've had DVTs (3) in my leg that started in a similar way.It doesn't sound a million miles away from phlebitus either. Best get it checked out, you can register with a doc and see them at the same time. Hopefully it's f**k all and they'll tell you to bugger off , and stop wasting their time.

I did as I really want to know now :)

I love sitting cross legged, I tend to leave it too long though so when I get up I have no feeling in leg and always a chance I could fall over, that's for Eggy to know what he is missing out on.

Helped a mate who's not very tech savvy with some IT & Home Cinema issues he's been having, which included connecting bluetooth "smart" speakers to his TV. Everything worked very well, and the speakers were particularly interesting to configure - but there was a significant (c. 5 second) delay between the onscreen picture and the audio channel, which I couldn't address using the TV's built-in sync management tools.

I have been unable to stop thinking about it, waking several times during the night to ponder potential solutions, and I suspect it will continue to plague my thoughts until I find one. I've already got one - he can use Kodi's excellent built-in audio sync offset tool, but that won't work for "regular" TV and other streaming services.

Does he have Sky?

There's a setting on there where you can manage the audio delay?

Men aren't supposed to be able to cross their legs so that one knee is over the other in the way that women do.

There's a physical reason for it.

Any man that can do it has unusually small balls.

No, but it's looking increasingly like that's the best answer. Well, that, or he switches to line out, which TBH is probably the more reliable method.

Went out snapping at a nature reserve today, and whilst I was there I thought to myself 'I never see any actual wildlife at these places' aside from the usual cows and sheep in field (though not technically wild I suppose), and birds. Then amazingly as I was on the way back to the car, right on the path in front of me were a couple of hares ****ing with each other.

I've still got my camera hung from my next, still switched on, so up it comes to the eyeball, I press the button to focus and snap when 'CHANGE BATTERY PACK' comes up and camera won't do anything. Turn it off and on again, by which time the said hares have ****ed off....

Wife rings me at work in a panic. She's lost her purse, need to cancel all the cards.
So I go through the palaver and cancel them all.
When I get home I ask where she last had it and from what she said, it must be somewhere in the house.
It took me three minutes to find it.
