I'm not sure - I'm 6' 4 1/2" and I guess that my arms are proportionate. ;)

Re: Boris Gate

It's all treated as a game and a laugh to Johnson, with him sitting there smirking. I just felt like kicking it off his face!

He was thankfully defeated on the move to bulldoze the bill through in...

Re: Concorde Lightshow.

We went on the Concorde at Brooklands. I was surprised at how narrow the cabin was - I could touch both walls at the same time. A lot of the fittings were also very 'plasticky'.

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

Compared to the Xrite software for the ColorMunki Photo, DisplayCal seems more thorough. Xrite takes about 5 mins to calibrate the screen, whereas DisplayCal takes around 30 mins, with many more...

Re: External SSD drive

Of course it won't fit a large drive into a smaller one - quart into a pint pot! ;)

Re: External SSD drive

I've never understood all that nonsense of A, B, C etc. 'drives' that M.S. use. I guess that it dates back to MSDOS. Linux (and I guess Macs) do it much more sensibly.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Not for me now!

At one time they worked fine for me, but now I have 'wet macula degeneration' they don't.

You can backup any OS with it.

Re: Filton Air Museum

Classic 'fir tree' blade roots.

This form of attachment dates back to at least the 40s and was used in the De Havilland Goblin - the first gas turbine military engine to gain type approval, and...

Re: You forgot this one................:-)

Note how they use 'tie-wraps' to prevent people turning the compressor and getting their fingers cut off (but I would really like to see something more substantial than tie-wraps!).

Also, nasty...

Re: Copying DVD's to iMac

I think that Dave wants to 'rip' a DVD to (say) an MP4 or MKV file, so it will play on his computer, rather than to a file in order to mount it as a file system.

Handbrake is pretty good - I use it on a Linux laptop. It's available for Macs:

Re: Boris Gate

Having the 'Letwin Amendment' go through and Johnson stating that he would break the law by not writing a letter to Brussels, I was hoping that someone would propose a 'Dead in a Ditch*' amendment!

Re: Boris Gate

I wonder if Johnson is going to give the D.U.P another £1 billion 'top-up' bung to get them on side?

Re: Boris Gate

He stated that he'd got a deal between the U.K. and the E.U., but he hadn't. He'd agreed a deal between him and the E.U. The deal will only be between the U.K. and the E.U. if it gets through...

Re: E-M5 III reviews

Complaints about a camera being too small beat me!

I'm 6' 4.5" with a hand span 1/4 meter (250mm), yet I can handle my E-P5 easily!

How big are the hands of those that would find an E-P5 too...

Re: E-M5 III reviews

I don't really see that.

I have an E-P5 that I use with my old 4/3rds lenses. With a big camera relative to the lens you hold the camera and support the lens. With a small camera and big lens,...

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

Having calibrated your monitor, you then need to calibrate your printer to produce a profile.
The procedure used on the ColorMunki (I expect the Spyder to be similar) is basically that you produce a...
