It's kind of been sorted Chris - she has been allowed to submit her answers on paper - technology eh?

UCAS appllication is in - fingers crossed now until possibly the end of May next year which is the last date that the Unis can offer or decline :)

Technology is great when it’s working, but a huge headache when it’s not.
Hopefully everything will work out.
May the Force be with you.

All's well and all that. Less than 48 hours after daughter put her UCAS application in she has had an offer from one of her top two choices - it's a conditional offer but with a low bar. To say she is excited is the understatement of the year.  :dance:

The world of STEM will next year have an undergraduate studying for her masters is physics and astrophysics. Bazinga!

It's a great time to be doing Physics as a lot of exciting research is going on.  :tup:

Good stuff. She has clearly done very well.

Our boiler. Keeps refusing to fire up. The flame detector is not detecting. Give it a clean and it will generally work - but this time it seems to be refusing. The only good this is that it wasn't last week when I was in the USA. Got the plumber coming out again this evening to have a look.

I ordered a variable ND filter from amazon. But a circular polariser arrived today. Now I have to take it back to the post office to send it back. Not amused.
May the Force be with you.

I played around with one for a while. I was not impressed. It left a visible pattern on the picture with small apertures. Let me know if you have more success. I gave mine away as being useless. Cannot remember what make it was.

I din't know such a thing existed. So now I've ordered a Fotga to have a play with. Less than a tenner and they have some good reviews (and some bad ones) on Youtube. Got to be worth a punt.

Allegedly the Haida ones are very good, and if I have some fun with the cheapy I might upgrade to one of them.

Let me know how you get on Howard. The idea is superb, but the cheap one did not work for me. Never did dare to spend more.

Of course, it'll be a few weeks, Chinapost you know.

Just found Typhoto - US company and the ND steps are by click stops which means, in theory, it's easy to avoid the dark cross pattern from getting the filter in between stops. Not the cheapest but free international shipping and should be below customs threshold.

Good find! Never seen a stepped one. I am tempted myself again for that price.

If you get one, do tell. I'm going to play with the Fotga to see if I like the principle - should be OK to get an idea of how to use the things.
