Chainless 99% efficient bike drive.

Depends... I can see if being useful in pro racing - where every watt saved counts.. also pro chains are more in the 100+ range.

However, non pro use - it doesn't look good. I can imagine all the shit and dirt getting into all those little bearings <snip>

Because Brexit.

Also Germany has better labor laws, proper (free) dentistry, free childcare, free university, a stronger economy and is in the EU.

On the downside.. the language is pretty tough!

Whats up here?

Your issue is a typo

wallColour = Readpixel(0, 0)

vs

<> wallColor

Whats up here?

Should your ReadPixels be the other way around?

eg

ReadPixel(py,px+1)

Should be

ReadPixel(px+1, py)

Ordered a new laptop

3rd April 2018

So I just checked the same model on Laptops Direct - and its 1800 quid there!

When I bought it on Scan, it was 1299 - and stated RRP was 1550. (Which is the price it has returned to)

Amazon is also about 1600.

So I think I got a semi-decent deal <snip>

There is also Lidar.
