Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Thank you Jim. That was along the lines that I was thinking but you put it so much better. :)

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Exactly. Would we be allowed a second vote if Corbyn was elected to No 10?

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Yup. Been there done that in 1977 (from Courtaulds), 1980 (from a French company), and in 1993 from Courtaulds again.

None of these redundancies had anything to Europe, but everything to do with...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Well said Rebecca. It isn't just the repetition which is boring, but the predictability of the comments from certain members.

Indeed, I suspect some here would enquire of a Paramedics politics...

Re: There are lots of things about Jacob Rees-Mogg I dislike, but....

Politics aside, we all need to be able to separate the person from their professional life.

Whether you like an MP's policies or not they have just as much right to enjoy a pint at the pub or a...

Re: Serial ATA HDs?

You won't regret it Jim.

I fitted one to my old i3 laptop about five years ago and it transformed the machine. Battery life will also be better.

Presumably those heckling Jacob Rees-Mogg's children think they should be running the country?

Why do those on the left think it is perfectly acceptable to be abusive to families of Tory MP's,...

Re: Bent Fenders (may contain valves)

Interestingly, the late Peter Walker actually encouraged amateurs to copy his designs, and was happy to give advice when things went wrong. He must have been quite a character.

He was also keen...

Re: Serial ATA HDs?

Yes.

And seeing as I need to write more than ten characters why not take the opportunity of updating to an SSD?

Re: Electric Car Question

Why should anyone be surprised by this?

It is generally better to shorten supply chains as much as possible.

It makes more sense to connect an engine directly to a clutch, gearbox and driving...

Re: Electric Car Question

Why 'clearly'? That was not my experience when I was loaned an F-Pace for a few days as a courtesy car.

My only disappointment was that it wasn't an F-Type. That would have been fun. :D

Re: Bent Fenders (may contain valves)

I didn't. I know the KT66's are beam tetrodes, which provide greater linearity than pentodes; but I don't think I have never heard the 'kinkless' term before (which I presume refers to their...

Re: Auntie Can't Keep a Secret

I occasionally record documentaries on Channel 5 so that I can skip through the ads. They provide a recap after every commercial break, so a one-hour programme probably only contains half an hour of...

Re: Bent Fenders (may contain valves)

Actually the history of my Quad II's is quite telling.

The first was bought by my father from Shorts of London in 1953, but by about 1960 my mother thought it was 'too old fashioned' so they...

Re: Bent Fenders (may contain valves)

That Quad II is actually older than me, built in 1953! My other Quad II was built in 1957, but is otherwise identical.

To the best of my knowledge they are still on their third set of KT66 output...

Re: Electric Car Question

Around 5 KW/Hr (at 15 pence per KW/Hr), which wouldn't get you very far.

To put it into perspective, you could boil a 3 KW electric kettle for around an hour and a half for the same money, or run...

Re: Aurora Lights, where?

Norway is a wonderful country to visit with or without the aurora, but be warned, it is very very expensive!

You would probably need to visit Norway during the winter to see the aurora. On the...

Re: The Windows10 Disaster

A fascinating read. The course of computer history could have been so much different if more powerful hardware had been available in the early days of personal computing.

Re: Bent Fenders (may contain valves)

Oh yes, we had that at school until it was replaced after pupil protests! :D

I think it was called Izal Medicated. There was another called Bronco which was just as uncomfortable to use. :eek:

Re: Bent Fenders (may contain valves)

You might think so Jim, but a good output transformer introduces little or no distortion, and seems to remove 'digital artefacts' from digital sound sources such as CD's.

The majority of the...

Re: Aurora Lights, where?

Not necessarily. There are many factors which dictate how visible the aurora will be, so the fact that we get good displays in the northeast of England doesn't necessarily mean that those same...

Re: Aurora Lights, where?

Yes this is true, and I have said the same here before.

The aurora that we photographed at home were much more visible to the camera than to the naked eye. I would be interested to see what a...

Re: Aurora Lights, where?

I have said this before, but we occasionally see the Aurora from our back garden in Co. Durham, so you don't necessarily have to leave the country.
