    No, but it is a tad cold to enjoy it for me!

  • I suppose technically the point is that the second you're brolly the "gig", as it pertains to you, is neither inside or outside. You're completely removing the element of IR35 and so any SDS is just immaterial and not applicable. It doesn't need an SDS, and it might as well not exist....

    replied to Which cordless tool ecosystem?
    Absolutely - I really should have fleshed that out a little more! Ultimately, I just wanted to say if you go 18v you'll never wish you'd gone 12v, and of course the 18v ecosystem is far far bigger. You can even buy lawnmowers and stuff now!

    Whereas if you go 12v, you might find yourself...

    replied to Which cordless tool ecosystem?
    I feel reasonably qualified to answer here, having built an entire extension! Firstly, you want 18v - absolutely without a doubt. I've got a set of 12v Makita Impact & Combi Driver in the garage that, quite literally, hasn't been touched since I went 18v 4/5 years ago. Have never once felt the need...

    replied to Long time contractor
    Yeah, I feel this.

    I went permie back in 2015 after somebody made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I knew the moment I signed the paperwork I'd made a mistake - hated every minute, really struggled to put up with the corporate stuff I'd been missing and handed my notice in after precisely...

  • I think the delay was a mistake in terms of "compliance" - I'm in contract (outside, with a bank) and while I'm not paying HUGE attention to the market I'm still getting outside roles sent over.

    Contrast that to last year, when I was looking for work in Feb/Mar and it seemed that...

    replied to Company email address?
    Not having a client e-mail is a little odd on a traditional contract - getting given client accounts is common even in corporate consultancy. I certainly don't see how using one is an IR35 indicator, but if that's what they need to class you as outside then take it.


    You should have...

    replied to New Build Mortgages
    This'll be it. On the whole new build quality isn't that bad, and far more old houses are in dire need of serious remedial works. If the mortgage companies worried that much about the condition, they'd insist on surveying the huge percentage of 20's, 30's, and 40's housing stock being sold every year...

    replied to HMRC scam call
    I had one of these - I'd had a bad day, so took the moment to have a little chat with them and let off a little steam. Took him about 10 solid seconds to respond and call me a word before ending the call
