4.0 out of 5 stars Good translation., 12 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The translation is enjoyable to read, and reflects the style of the original latin.
the manufacturing of the books is odd.... the edges of the paper are rough.
it is so obviously rough that it must be deliberate, but to me it just seems a bit odd.

4.0 out of 5 stars High frequency trading is ok, High frequency robbery isn't, 22 April 2014

This review is from: Flash Boys (Kindle Edition)
What ever happened to an exchange being 'equitable'
This book explains how trading evolved around legislation and technology to take advantage of time delays, and how it was uncovered and 'avoided'
The markets were definitely inequitable for the end user. This books plus some thinking should make trading a little more equitable.

4.0 out of 5 stars It fits and it very flexible., 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Raspberry Pi Camera Mount Bracket
Don't let me put you off when you read below. It's great, but could be slightly improved.
Cable management isn't straight forward if you wan the cable neat. It could do with some extra bolt holes to mount it onto something else. Like many items, the weight of the cable influences how the bracket sits.

I had some 4 inch posts I needed to work on. These are long enough for me to just be able (carefully) to sort them out.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works, 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Kills stumps and helps them rot by breaking down the wood.
Internet tells me it works best on already dead stumps.
Drill fat holes in the stump and pop in the saltpetre


Wolf-Garten REK Folding Pruning Saw

Offered by Price Attack Ltd
Price: £17.99

4.0 out of 5 stars only cuts on pulling, 29 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After using it I would prefer something that cuts on a push and a pull. sometimes the best purchase you have is on the push, andthis saw is less helpful then.
HOWEVER!!! - IT is brilliantly sharp and sorts out branches very quickly.


MOLLE US Assault Pack Military Patrol Ruckasck 20L Black
MOLLE US Assault Pack Military Patrol Ruckasck 20L Black
Offered by CamoOutdoor - The Sports & Camouflage Outfitters
Price: £17.63

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for commuting or holidays, 29 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because my existing rucksack was dying.
It's a bit smaller than I expected (across the width), but this makes it convenient to carry and hold.
My small laptop fits neatly, and the bag doesn't shout "i've got a laptop inside, please steal me" like some bags do.

I bought an additional pouch to carry a water bottle.
The front pockets (having less width than the rest of the rucksack) are a little small for my liking, but I have learned to love them for what they are good at - which is holding smaller stuff.
