I picked up a garage door catalogue the other day, in case the job I went to proved irreparable and the client needed to choose a new door. Anywho, I was browsing through it this morning, vaguely thinking about a roller door for my putative workshop. The following price guide was appended;



If you look closely, you will note that it has more headings than columns, and more side headings than rows, which makes it rather difficult to work out prices. Fregsample, how much would a door 2500mm high and 1500mm wide cost? Is it 1853 or 1924?

Assume the most. It's badly laid out but I'd take the 1000 column (it's either that or the 6000 column) as being empty and the same for the 1600 row (or 3100 one).

I wonder if it's expressing ranges of size - for example the topleftmost cell is the price for doors from 1600x1000 to 1800x 1250. Still doesn't answer your specific question though.

Was thinking the same. That said, it doesn't make the layout any less lousy.

I've recently been re-reading some of Edward Tufte's books on the visual presentation of information. He'd scream if you showed him that.

I met a lady today who has been dealt quite a rotten hand in life, in terms of health and well-being.
One story stood out.
Her husband was physically abusive, and on one occasion her daughter got him off her by dragging him off by his earrings... which ripped clean out.
She is no longer with the man, and her daughter has been given an award for how well she looks after her mum. She sounds like quite a fine kid!

Quite a fine kid strikes me as a severe understatement there. I also hope they're both getting help for what that bastard must have done to their mental health.

I don't know about prison, but I know he has been denied access to the girl.

It better be prison, too. For a very long time.

In other news, the lamentable fact that stock can go down as well as up is not good for my mental health...

In my experience stock only goes down if you leave it simmering on the stove (or if the pan has a hole in it).

Back in post 1385300, I mentioned the propensity of some gel cling skulls on my window to melt in the heat of the sun. The process does not see to be abating, despite the cooler weather;

Yup, and at that particular point I was fearing I had left it on the stove for too long. It's going back up now though, so all good.

I dunno, Crissdee, that skull looks spookier now! If less skull-like.
