Runescape – Source Of Denial Achievement Guide – Pick fruit from a Sq’irk tree in the Sorceress’s Garden without stopping

Source Of Denial is one of the new Runescape achievements which is actually really easy to achieve and can be done in 1 minute. Basically you need to pick fruit from a Sq’irk tree in the Sorceress’s Garden without stopping and it awards 10 runescore points. One has to start right beyond the entrance gate and pick a fruit from the tree without stopping. Running is imperative, and it is done most easily in the winter garden.

Go winter and look for this position:

Source Of Denial - Pick fruit from a Sq'irk tree in the Sorceress's Garden without stopping.
Source Of Denial – Pick fruit from a Sq’irk tree in the Sorceress’s Garden without stopping.

When you see the spirit click on the sq’irk tree and let your pixels do the running – as you near the tree click on it again so it picks it straight up.

Job done.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Headphone Sizes In-ear Fit

Samsung have tried a mixture of canal-type earphones that are inserted in the ear canal and open-type earphones. This new type are called In-ear Fit and comes with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and a few other models. When I first opened the box I put them in and wore them to work but I found they didn’t quite fit properly and were falling out a lot, also the sound wan’t great because of the way they fitted they were hanging out of the ear. When I looked into this later I saw they had L1 and R1 written on the rubber ear tip. When I looked in the box there was a second set of rubber ear tips with L2 and R2 written on them. At first glance they didn’t look too different but up close they L2 and R2 set were slightly bigger. I removed the L1 and R1 rubber parts and replaced them with the L2 and R2, although the sizes weren’t a lot different it did make a huge difference wearing them. They fitted more snugly and the sound was a lot better – Before throwing them away make sure you try the above 🙂

Bike Maintenance Guide

The best thing you can do to upgrade or improve any bike is the tyres, this will make the biggest difference to your cycle, making it an easier and faster ride.

Tyres
I see a lot of people cycling around with tyres not at the right pressure, I also used to do this as a kid and its only now I can see the error of my ways. Put some air in your tyres and not only that, put the right pressure in. Most tyres will give you a PSI range on the side:
20170829_201326
In the example it shows a range of 60-80 PSI, I normally go for the higher end of the range, you can really feel the difference!

If you are cycling on the road then you need less grip and thinner tyres in general. If you are offroad then more grip and thicker tyres is normally the answer. People who have a hybrid bike or do a bit of both then there are many tyres that fit inbetween to give you the best experience. You can purchase tyres from sites like wiggle or sometimes the best bet if your not quite sure is to go to your local bike shop, tell them what you are using it for and your budget then they will recommend something that works.

Wheels
Next we have the wheels, they consists of a hub in the middle, some spokes and a rim a similar size to your tyre. When I first purchased my hybrid bike the wheels were reasonably cheap and I had a lot of problems with them going wonky. Normally this is because some of the spokes have gone a bit loose. The spokes all need to be at the same tension and a spoke key can be used to tighten or loosen spokes but this is very fiddly balancing them to the right tension. I found it was worth spending a bit of money on a decent set of wheels to keep you on the straight and narrow.

Additional Medicine Duty

When medicine duty rates were doubled, these stamps were attached to existing medicine duty labels.

Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy Petition documents required special revenue stamps for payment of the judicial fees

Civil Service

The Civil Service Revenue stamp was used to pay for examination fees to enter the Civil Service and could be bought from Post Offices by prospective candidates.

Common Law Courts

Common Law Courts stamps were used to pay for several fees involved in the system of Common Law after the Common Law Courts (Fees) Act of 1865. The stamps were in use for ten years, being replaced by Judicature Fee stamps in 1875.

Contract Note

Tax on an agreement to purchase shares or sucurites. Introduced as a penny rate by an Act of 1860, extended in 1888 and 1893, and made into a sliding scale 1910 when the use of these adhesives became obligatory (previously, general duty embossed stamps were permitted). Where several sales of stocks were included on one contract note, each sale was taxed, hence the need for a series of values when the rate was originally simply 1d per contract. Most contract notes issue exist with either the overprint inscription in thin or thick letters.

Patent Office

Issued by the Patent Office for payment of fees for registration of patent documents

Revenue stamp with cypher seal and tin strip

Special revenue stamps on blue base paper for the payment of judicial fees were attached to the document. A tin strip was used to attach the two together just like you would use a stapler today.The name of the debtor was written partly on the stamp and partly on the document and then the embossed impression was made.

Cypher adhesive labels were used as a security device to secure the ends of the tin strip.  This was the first adhesive stamp from Britain and was used to cover the staple on the reverse of the document.  It was line engraved with the royal cypher and its position in the sheet.  Originally they bore the Georgean Cypher but in 1837 it was changed to Queen Victoria’s Cypher.

Later in Queen Victoria’s reign the label was changed.  The new label was given an engine turned background to the more highly engraved Royal Cypher, it was also given corner letters which indicated the position of the label in the printed sheet.

Television Licence

Television licences first appeared in 1946, from 1968 a higher fee was payable for a colour receiver. From 1972 licence stamps were made available at Post Offices; the fee could also be payable directly to the Bristol Licence Office.

Transfer Duty 

Tax on the transfer of stocks and shares. This tax was payable only once a year, so if shares were transferred several times in a year, only the first transaction was taxed. The stamps were dated to show their period of validity. Rates were based on the face value of the shares or security – 3d below £25, 6d below £50, 6d per £50 thereafter.
