I've had a quick Google and couldn't find anything about Gmail resizing so an app it is.
Odd! Must be the iPhone email app that’s doing it then.

Re: what are you doing ?

Anyone know an easy was to do it in Android without having to download to a computer? I don’t know if it’s the same on Android as on IoS, but given that I use gmail, it probably is. I just email the photo to myself. When I hit send, it gives me the option of small, medium, large or original file si...

Only hurdle is the local council, as we are in a conservation area, but I'm fairly sure conifer hedges are fair game.
If these are Leylandii, most conservationists will be glad to see the back of them!

Re: Turntable Motor Speed Control

Interesting it was mentioned in the last article I posted a link to, that hard drive motors are 3 phase synchronous motors. I must have an old hard drive knocking about.. intrigued why a hard drive would have a 3 phase motor. This must mean that the hard drive must have a DC to 3 phase stack of ele...

Re: what are you doing ?

I don't remember seven in Plymouth but I spent some time in one of them, it was on the first floor above some normal shops in the city centre - was it Peter Green or something like that? I seem to remember orange window shades? That was Peter Russell’s HiFi Attic. I Worked there in 86 and 87. This ...

Re: what are you doing ?

Hi-fi is a dying thing. The generation that grew up in the 70’s when it was the third big purchase after the house and the car are now dying out, and of those who are left, many only bought hifi then because it was the done thing and have since lost interest. Here in Plymouth in 1976 there were seve...

Re: what are you doing ?

We live about ten miles outside Plymouth, where they often have military displays and so on. Couple of years ago there was a big military music event on the Hoe, accompanied by a Spitfire aerobatic display. I don’t know if he turned up early or if he wanted to practice, but we were treated to a half...

Re: Resto-mod cars.

I was looking online at an Austin 3 litre earlier (inspired by a Broadspeed racing car) and I came across a picture of an Austin 1800 coupe, in Australia I think, and I was impressed by the look. The big wheels and colour scheme just look right. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/a0/89/e4/a089e444fe2ca...

Re: Sky questions.

The speed you get on an Openreach line is dependant on the line, not the service provider. If you get X mb/sec with one provider, you should get the same with all the others. Bear in mind that the speeds quoted by providers refer only to what is received by the router. They do not include the wi-fi ...

Re: Resto-mod cars.

Hmm, looking at the widescreen of the car behind, may be a photoshop job. Looks impressive though!
I’d say the bonnet and front wings had been extended as well.

If it was a factory or Leyland Australia prototype you’d probably find it in here:

Re: Corona Virus Lock Down 'Rant' Thread.

There’s a nice little beach near here called Bantham which is reach down five miles of single track road. Yesterday the road contained five miles of solid stationary traffic. Hell on wheels.

Re: Peter Green.

Yes, but maybe. The thing is to me while that Prince's playing is great, it is just well executed and controlled and just a bunch of technique (though the just in there is a understatement) He can do that everyday and twice on Sundays. What the likes of Peter Green and without doubt early Santana d...

Re: General health matters.

Have you tried Xylitol, or birch sugar as it's otherwise known? Tastewise, I couldn't distinguish it from normal white sugar in tea, coffee or on my morning porridge, although you need about 10% more to achieve the same sweetness. It doesn't get absorbed into the bloodstream, so passes straight thr...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Good stuff! Never knew about the surveying problem before. So that means that near a mountain range, gravitational pull is not perpendicular to the earth’s surface so anyone living nearby will be leaning over a little. I’m tempted to believe that in the southern states of the USA they all lean a bit...
