Re: Police stop & ID in U.K. shopping centres?

Interesting, thanks Bruce.

We should either be paranoid or entirely relaxed about facial recognition depending on our individual point of view, since it is currently virtually useless:...

Re: Clacton Air show

A school friend of mine was a navigator on Vulcans: he didn’t do the Port Stanley mission.
At East Midlands airport they’ve got one in the Aeropark aircraft museum, and if you’re lucky and one of...

Re: 1066 And All That

Great set.
I especially like the sound of 'Trotter Shoes' :)

Re: A snap off a bridge...

I like the idea a lot, but I find the city buildings look a bit squashed down and truncated by the roof of the station.

It might not be physically possible, but could you take it from a position...

I’ve just returned to printing after 35 years, also using a commercial lab. A lot of people in the Cambridge club recommend these guys in Manchester https://dscolourlabs.co.uk

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

Yes, of course. I was being partially ironic.

Someone has to pay, state and/or individuals, and if UK business suffers we as a nation are going to have a lot less to pay with.

Personally I...

Re: Man with phone in hand.........

Based on personal experience I’d say he’d be safer to do that in tourist areas in most Asian countries than in most Western European ones :D

There are exceptions, of course, but in Japan for...

Re: Olympus 45mm f 1.2 vs PanLeica 42.5mm nocticron

Re: Olympus 45mm f 1.2 vs PanLeica 42.5mm nocticron

True for all Panny lenses with an aperture ring, to the best of my knowledge. Certainly so for the PL 15mm f1.7, which I do own.

Re: Olympus 45mm f 1.2 vs PanLeica 42.5mm nocticron

Which ever you decide on, if you’re not in an immediate hurry I suggest holding on for a deal - for example, until the end of last month, there was a manufacturer’s £150 cash back on the Oly and LCE...

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

They are of course not subject to EU free movement, and theoretically are supposed to satisfy a points system, such has...
