How does a streamer cut grass?  :P
Stupid firkin hopeless gayBooks.  Clearly Mr Jobs never heard of strimmers.  How the hell people tolerate these shitty laptops is beyond me :(

They read what they're about to post before they hit Post? :P
I type the shit, so I know what I've said.  I just don't bargain on the Jobs shite from changing it, after all, its *my* firkin laptop, not crApple's
There's this thing called auto correction. I believe you can switch it off.  ;D

Well, when I say "my", of course I mean "work".  But it only ever gets used when I go on hols.
Four months of the year then :D
You sound like my boss :P

Back on topic, this is the strimmer I bought yesterday and it got it's maiden outing this afternoon.  :y

For 39.99 it's not a bad little tool and I gave it a hard test where the grass and weeds were about 2ft high.  It was a bit too much for it in places and it struggled with couch grass for example, but coped with grass, soft weeds and even young brambles. It'll be good for light work, edging etc  :y

The only downside was when inevitably the line disappeared into the spool and like all strimmers it was fiddly to remove the spool to retrieve the line.  ::)

That's your problem, your using a spool of fishing line,  Chuck that away and fit a steel blade.

These look very  Kung Fu
