How thick's the chain? A pair of bolt cutters will most likely do the trick.

CD decks would be neat to have but how much do you think they'd actually get used? Would probably cost something like 400-500 quid for a decent pair.

Just to clarify I'm mentioning that to Andy in case it's useful to him, not to say that there shouldn't be forest ones. Though I think some thought needs to go into how a workshop will fit in to the local picture alongside the bike station, and if free how to keep it sustainable and not abused. Grae...

How about painting it to look like it's covered in shit?

Like trampled soil with dead plants and mud running down it and the odd stray twig or bit of garbage or used condom.

I don't see any reason calling something a "manifesto" would affect its status under copyright law. However, since (I would have thought) manifestos are generally things that the authors want to see as widely distributed as possible, there might exist statements in or accompanying them whi...

Hmm, that's a shame. I guess on Facebook it would need to be a group rather than a user account. It could be less like an official presence maybe then, more like an "I hang out in the Forest Cafe" group.

I think it's nice to keep some sort of myspace presence because of the number of bands and other artists who use it. It's cool to see all the great people who play here linked there. As stands it prominently directs people to the website, which is fine. It takes no effort to leave it there and who k...

10dB = Falling leaf 140dB = Jet taking off so fourteen leaves falling at once is as loud as a jetplane? The decibel (dB) is a logarithmic unit. The difference between 10dB and 140dB is a factor of 10^13, not 14. So more like ten trillion leaves fallling at once is as loud as a jet plane. Not that y...

I used to live round the corner from that church, often wondered what the deal with it was. It sounds like the owners might be glad of some rent for it - let's get in touch. I also think we should look into the place on St Mary's Street (the one for rent at £17.5K), and also that shopfront near the ...

The problem is not just the money, it's getting the mortgage. No bank is going to give us one without a thorough business plan and multiple years of audited accounts, which we don't have.

So they're selling the business, not re-letting the space. The rent is £20K, which makes more sense.

Reconnaisance Mission #1: North Bridge to Newington Road

I went for a walk earlier this evening from North Bridge down through Nicholson Street and Clerk Street to Newington Road, noting down every unused shopfront in sight on the way. I'm going to repeat this for some other areas. My aim here is not just to look for places we would definitely be interest...
