"Hi people! Iím going to be in Oxford this weekend (Saturday evening to Sunday afternoon). Itíd be nice to see people, if anyone is about. Psyched for Iffley or slacklining, if itís sunny. Let me know oh 79 oh 6 213 oh 17." -- Ian

Talking of slacklining... I'm going to take mine down to the uniparks at lunch time to enjoy this sunshine... 1-ish near the sciences site side gate if anyone fancies joining me?

Didcot, which is sort of nearly Oxford. Or at least in Oxfordshire. Since 1974, anyway.

House stuff...... all so very necessary and yet it EATS climbing weekends.

And then you finish the DIY and work comes along and eats some MORE weekends.

Looking forward to Font though!

Fontttt!

In terms of the house there is still lots to do, but I guess there has been progress. Hopefully most stuff related to the fireplace will be done by the end of next week or Tues after Easter at the latest. The bathroom needs part of the floor re-done after dealing with the leak and we have the kitchen going in the second week of May and carpets the end of May. Lots of painting for us to do, but waiting for the leak in the bathroom to definitely be fixed and for the various rooms to be slightly more finished before painting them (can paint the living room once the stove is in, the kitchen once the kitchen is in and will do the bedrooms and hallway once the old carpets are out). Argh. Although not sure how easily I'll be able to paint things that are low down by the time we get to June/July.

Excellent, Cameron. Would you like to have a look at the website and see which kind of ticket you'd prefer?

Anyone else?

Best seats still available? (Towards the front if possible.) It doesn't seem all that expensive for what looks like a really good show!

I was about to say that I'm free then (since I'm planning some random days off now that ESGI100 is over), but then the GP reminded me that I'm already making evening plans with Clare...

A climbing question - how bad would it be to use a kayaking helmet (which is the same as a skiing/boarding helmet) for via ferrata? The theory is that climbing helmets are designed for one big hit and kayaking helmets for multiple small hits. But is this really true?

I have a climbing injury question. I was doing a rockover move today and badly wrenched my knee: there was some amount of torque I think, and I heard it click. It felt a bit wrong at the time, but not too painful, so I even managed another route (a bit gingerly) before giving up. But it's now hard to walk and hurts to bend my knee. Does anyone have any experience with something like this? Should I see a doc/physio or just give it time? There's not really any visible swelling and I haven't applied any ice or anything - mostly because I don't know what would be appropriate.

Any advice would be welcome! Crawling around the place is going to get boring pretty soon Confused

If you fancy a day at say Avon/Cheddar/Wye we could be back in Oxford in time for your evening plans too Grinning Unless Wednesday is better? I've promised to be in Oxford for 8pm Wednesday but that still leaves the option of climbing first....
George
10:51 PM, 12/04/14

And Sesh, sounds a bit rubbish Crying I suggest not doing anything that hurts, take some painkillers and if it is still super painful after the weekend get a doc to take a look.

Niall - definitely! But I booked this trip with some friends from Scotland before the current OUMC plan was put forward, and it turns out we are going to end up missing each other exactly! My foresight clearly isn't working properly Wink

Should be two of the red Alpkit mats there. I'll be there around 6:30 I think, probably only for a shortish session too.

O wise and helpful GP... does anybody in Oxford have a spare car parking space they aren't currently using? If so could I pretty please borrow it for a bit?

I've brought my car back after being away, with the plan of keeping it around for a week or two for some climbing trips, and have suddenly discovered that I (probably) can't park it where I was expecting to. I would be extremely grateful for any help and would repay the favour in beer/chaffeuring to climbing destinations!

You could try Frenchay Rd [goo.gl/maps/Q0u1a]] I think it is still un-restricted, though I think it can be hard to get a space...
Dave M

[Edit] [Reply quoting]

Dave: I have a spare parking space, but I'm sure there's plenty of free parking closer to you!

Jody/Dave M/anyone else: I'll be heading to Iffley shortly, probably there for about 18:45.

For those who care about such things, this seems like a potentially useful tool for testing a given server's vulnerability to Heartbleed (you simply enter the URL). As the Guardian has recently pointed out, there's little point in updating your web passwords unless the servers themselves have been updated...
Bethan
1:13 PM, 15/04/14
[Edit] [Reply quoting]

That's very much a tool for testing your own server(s), though, not other people's. (If all it did was check the OpenSSL version, it would be fine, but since it actually sends a maliciously formed heartbeat request to the server, using it is indistinguishable from an attack. And also in breach of the UK Computer Misuse Act, if you don't have permission from the site owner; which may not be of worry to people but is something to be aware of)
Niall H.

[Edit] [Reply quoting]

Hmmm, ok - that link was provided by the Guardian... A lot of people might not be aware of that potential breach!
Bethan

That was foolish of the Guardian! Not to say that the CMUA isn't foolish, too, but we're a bit stuck with that
