Re: Vintage Kit

Interesting question. Most of the big names in high-end audio such as Mission, Quad, Wharfedale, Audiolab and Castle Acoustics were bought up and in many cases rescued by the Chinese owned IAG. Most...

Re: Geared Steam Locomotives

I had heard of them but have never seen one. I don't think they were ever used on main lines in the UK; more in quarries, coal mines and suchlike, and I suspect the gears would wear fairly quickly...

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

Thank you Bill for yet another interesting and informative post.

Re: Foreign hire car CDW insurance

You might find it cheaper to book the insurance on-line when you order the car. Charges are often higher at the airport because they have you by the short and curlies!

Also have a look at their...

Re: Foreign hire car CDW insurance

I have done this in the UK and abroad in the past. I have not needed to make a claim though which is always the acid test.

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

Sadly some people have such a deep, ingrained and unhealthy hatred of 'opposing' individuals, groups or ideologies that it incontrovertibility clouds and colours their judgement, making them...

The poisonous agenda would still be there Jim.

Pretending a problem doesn't exist doesn't make it go away. It never has and it never will.

White Cotton Gloves

Just a quick heads up for friends here who like to develop and scan their own films.

Savers Chemists stores sell some quite decent white cotton gloves for 99p I think, or it might have been...

Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

How ever did our parents manage in the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's without huge supermarkets, deep freezers, mobile phones, credit cards and multi-car ownership?

I am not retired and am unlikely to...

Steve, the 'grain' created by LED scanners is nothing like film grain, but is a sharper, more crystalline effect; almost as if individual grains of silver are sparkling in the light. It is not...

Re: Weirdest SALE

The V750 uses a 'Cold cathode fluorescence lamp' (with mercury vapour) so it is a bit slow warming up. My old V350 is the same. The newer scanners use LED's so they are instant.

However, I am not...
