The brown tinged lens of hindsight

Going after a slice of the tatty electronic toy & gadget pie so dominated by Argos instead of looking after the geeks, nerds and bearded radio hams was never going to end well. Of course with the brown tinged lens of hindsight it's easy to poke a finger at the problem. IMHO it's a shame however they did not go down the Makerspace/Men-in-sheds path, I for one would love to rent time on a fully equipped bench with workshop. Access to all the kit that I otherwise could not afford or have room for at home would of been mighty tempting.
