Re: Star Wars

Rita, Mik, thanks for commenting. I guess I'll get around to seeing the movie when it screens on tv. I'm not a fan of cinemas.

Colin Furze is a very talented engineer and skilled craftsman. I worked at many levels in a Rolls Royce aircraft engine factory for 35 years, and I never met any engineer as naturally talented as him. He is a bit manic though - but that's part of his showmanship! I believe he trained as a plumber. If he'd taken a more academic route, he'd be another Frank Whittle or Barnes Wallace etc.

Well worth checking out his other projects on Youtube - especially his pulse jet ones.

Re: Star Wars

Mik and Jim - unfortunately our Aussie broadband is about as fast as dialup used to be and Youtube won't run in my area.

Pity.

As I said in another post:

And he sang as watched and waited 'til his billy boiled
"You'll come awaiting the network with me"
Waiting the network, waiting the network etc.

Re: Star Wars

Yes Jim, I remember your modified quote from another post. It was all about copper to the node or copper to the home. The better option was set aside by certain politicians with a vested interest in keeping the value of their Telstra share price up. None dare call it treason.
