I've hired a car from tomorrow evening til Saturday night, I think the plan is still to head to the peaks somewhere. Defaulting to Mike and Tors expertise on that, if they stop climbing at Brooks ever!!!!

Anyone else want in?

Leaving 7:00.

Just discovered that one of my ropes is nowhere to be found, and the most likely explanation is that I must have left it on the pavement on Sunday evening Sad

Erm... anyone able to lend me a pair of doubles (or even just one rope) for the weekend? (Promise not to lose them...)

the OAC is "cool"
There were complimentary things said about the new stash design at the OAC do, so I think we can at least say that they have good taste.

Dear Oracle, I need your wisdom (ideally the wisdom of one of your wiser representatives - Clare?)

A charming and handsome man applies for a few jobs, and gets an interview for one of them, but its far from the one he wants the most. The one he wants the most doesn't have its deadline for over a week. If he goes to the interview and somehow gets the job, it'll be a right ballache for him to even go to the interview for the job he really wants. But he might not even get an interview for that one! The charming and handsome man is distressed and confused by the situation. How would you advise him?

Hey all, I"m quite new here and was planning to check out one of the boulder walls this evening. Do I need to sign any docs first or is it enough to show that I'm student to access the walls Happy
Thanks in advance, Markus

Markus; I'm afraid that there's paperwork either way! You'll need a OUMC membership card (joining details here and, yes, there's a form) and your University Card to access Iffley, or you'll need your University Card and some money to get into Brookes (and they'll ask you to fill out a form, too).

I would go to the interview anyway. Treat it as a practice interview for the one you really want, so that by the time you get to the interview for the job you really want you're on top interview form!

Could any car owners please recommend me a decent garage in Oxford? My car has sadly developed a small oil leak, I usually get it serviced when I'm back in Hertfordshire but I'd like to get this looked at sooner. I'm happy to go a little bit out of town (within reasonable cycling distance), I just would like to know it's somewhere trustworthy. Thanks in advance!

Anyway, is the club secretary anywhere near Brookes or Iffley somewhere today?

Hi Markus, I'll be at Brookes from around 7.30ish tonight and will have forms and membership cards. If you can find an OUMC member they'll (probably) be able to point me out.

Whilst i'm ruining the GP for everyone else..

Is anybody likely to have a room in Oxford they might want to let in the near future?

Non-smoker, quiet (as in dont play loud music), ex-climber, Roman Catholic.

Can't cope with party houses/being kept awake/woken up.

Speak to anyone who's been around for a few years and they'll say i'm rude and would be kicked out of Combat-18 for holding offensive views, however its all lies.

I would go to the interview too. Best to start with an interview that matters less to you what the outcome is. Also depending on what it is for, it might help identify hot interview topics of the moment.
My experience is a bit limited though to very structured interviews for training programmes.

Hope life is going well! Happy

And hello to everyone else Happy

Mark, your father, Steve and Jo are all right. Much better not to have the interview for the job you really want be the first interview you've had in a while. Go to everything.

I use these guys - they're just opposite Hotson's out on Pony Road. Never had a problem with them. If you know you have an oil leak, I hope you're topping it up very regularly?

Also if you get offered the job you can always put off the start date. Once they've decided you're the best candidate you suddenly become the one with all the power.

Dear OUMC & friends, There's a move to set up a regular Saturday afternoon slackline session - probably in South Parks, with expert input from the guys who run the Folly Hill (Faringdon) session on Sundays.

More details on the Oxford Slackline facebook page.

Do come to the pub, Cameron. I've got a self--made cryptic for you to look at.

Also, did you know your Tiger-streak mate was going to be on Only Connect??
Lina

Back in the UK and on the bus to Oxford. Grinning I'm feeling a bit trashed by the travel, so I'm not so sure about making the pub, but I'm very keen to see the crossword!

Yes, I knew that Tiger Dave was going on Only Connect, but I haven't had an opportunity to watch it yet.

It would be fun to see you and hear about your travels, but I can easily imagine you might be knackered and right out of spoons...

Yeah, the darkness has come and now I'm noticing the fact that I've only had short naps in the last 28 hours, so I might just crash at home.

I should be at Brookes tomorrow, though!
