How many new toys does a bloke need?

Although I am reminded of these wise words, in answer to my own question...

He who dies with the most toys, wins.

I'm working on the basis that you need enough toys to fill the garage, garden and shed, at which point you need to buy just one more, so that you have nowhere to put it and have the required excuse to move to a bigger place with more storage. That's the plan anyway

I keep the economy reading on the smartcraft set to "litres per km" or some other meaningless figure

Good plan, stupid unfathomable measurement that is, never understood it so it's got to be wrong

An ancient long-deceased aunt once said (just after my father bought an aeroplane in the late 70's) that "<tut> little boys never grow up their toys just get more expensive" - a fine motto to live by

Extending the coax

New aerial bought.

With the height extended by the A-frame, the coax does not reach the set. Problem with these aerials is that the coax is captive in the aerial. Would there be any major problem with extending the length by 2m or so on top of the 6m ish it comes with providing I do a decent splice or does this unbalance the aerial?
