  1. Let's have another election, we're just starting to get good at them.
  2. Sorry for bumping this old thread. I can't find any kabaddi in Sheffield either. Lets organise something.
  3. I quite like it. It's a very imposing structure. Unique. I like Sheffield's 60s & 70s architecture, lots of good solid concrete & brick. Makes a change from seeing the sheds they build out of RSJs & cover with decorative facades these days. There is a walkway under it, but it's behind large locked gates, the path that was supposed to be on the other side to link it to London Road was never completed by the council. It's a shame that was never opened up, a nice walkway & subway would go some way to fixing the problem of cutting off London Road. It shades all the Moorfoot too, as well as blocking access, so think it killed off that bottom part of the moor as well as London Road. Even the public toilet block built into it has been closed for years now, most of the moorfoot area is in a poor state, there's very little reason to go there, just empty shops, dempseys & sharps. I hope there's some plan to regenerate that area a bit now the rest of the moor is almost complete. Hate it or not, it'd be a massive job to demolish such a big reinforced concrete structure. It seems to be a very solid structure & it'd be a waste of a unique huge building, so we should make the best of it. I know it's council offices now, but I don't think they use all of it. It standing there half empty doesn't really help anybody.
  4. How is using an empty car park that is free for an hour unethical?
  5. The car park isn't owned by staples & if it's never full then how is anybody losing anything? Anyway, I always park there thinking I'm going to shop at Staples, then when I get to the door I remember they don't sell anything I want, so I go to the market. The intention was there when I parked up. You can get 2hrs in the multi-story next door to the market for £1.50, if you shop in the market & take your car park token to the information desk in the market. I've never seen that car park full & it's much closer than any car park was to castle market. And almost every bus in Sheffield stops outside. Problems are, there's no gallery, it doesn't have a referee, there's no billy's frillies, it's all level.
  6. You can use SoX to change the sample rate http://sox.sourceforge.net/ converting sample rate should be avoided if possible, it'll mean a slight loss in quality, but if you need to then SoX is the best converter. If your source audio is on a laptop, surely it's already digital? Why can't you just burn your CD from the laptop? Do you need it on spdif for some reason? I think it might be that causing your sample rate problems? You can see the limitations/quirks of that format here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S/PDIF You may need to manually set the sender & receiver sample rates each time. You can probably buy an external usb soundcard with s/pdif quite cheap. A lot of laptops will have digital mini-trs out too. Obviously outputting analogue audio from the laptop & converting it to digital is a bad idea, you want to output it digitally to avoid an unnecessary double-conversion. You should be able to buy an external soundcard with spdif for around £20, but double check that you need one first & not just a new cable for the laptop's mini-trs output. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TOSLINK#Mini-TOSLINK
  7. It was busy this morning. The meat & fish is better quality, fresher & cheaper than supermarkets. Wider variety too. The venison looked great on Barry's stall today. I miss Castle Market, but most of the old stalls are at the new market & it's less soul destroying than Tesco. It's open tomorrow too.
  8. New information for health professionals (in the USA) http://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/hp/cannabis-pdq
  9. Nexus. However, if a keyboard is required you should be looking for a laptop/chromebook/similar.
  10. Most people aren't going to hospitals just for the fun of it.
  11. Don't worry, they're much more likely to drink themselves to death if you look at the stats.
  12. Games that allow you to save on the gameboy usually do that with battery powered memory on the game cartridge, you will need to replace that battery in the cartridge. Isopropyl alcohol is good for cleaning dirty contacts, safe to use on plastics & circuit boards. You can still buy working gameboys cheap from ebay. If you get a gameboy advance it'll play your gameboy & gameboy color games as well as advance games. So it's not really worth paying somebody to fix it if you can't do it easily yourself.
  13. They're supposed to take it off the grill, let it cool & then refrigerate it, then heat it up properly the next day, if any is still unsold after 2 days it should be binned. Ideally they'd use smaller kebabs & aim to sell it all in one day. They need to be more careful with chicken kebabs. Lamb is usually safer, fattier & no doubt it has loads of salt & preservatives in too when it's a doner kebab.
  14. Some more published studies here: http://www.jneurosci.org/content/21/17/6475.abstract http://jpet.aspetjournals.org/content/308/3/838.abstract http://mct.aacrjournals.org/content/10/1/90.abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20859676 http://jpet.aspetjournals.org/content/early/2006/05/25/jpet.106.105247 http://www.molecular-cancer.com/content/9/1/196 http://www.pnas.org/content/95/14/8375.full.pdf+html http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22198381?dopt=Abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21097714?dopt=Abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12746841?dopt=Abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3339795/?tool=pubmed http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22594963 http://molpharm.aspetjournals.org/content/70/5/1612.abstract http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ijc.23584/abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16908594 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20516734 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21475304 http://cancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/66/13/6748.abstract It's a plant that is very easy to take cuttings (clones) from, if these clones are grown in similar conditions then they will be very consistent in the amounts of active chemicals. If it was a bit less illegal then it'd be very easy to produce a consistent product, or several different consistent products to treat different problems.
  15. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16804518?dopt=Abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22555283?dopt=Abstract So far it's mainly just animal studies showing positive effects, it can still be too bureaucratic to research it on human cancer patients, although there is a lot of anecdotal evidence that it can help.
