Re: Nothing In Particular

There have been two Fiats in my life. The first was a devastatingly pretty AC series 124 coupe. I bought it as a non-runner when it was about seven years old, thinking I might be able to restore it but the rust was just overwhelming. Managed to flog the engine and gearbox for more than I paid for th...

Re: WAD Phono2 power supply.

Sorted! I got a bit disillusioned when I finished this thing and couldn’t get rid of the hum, so it’s been sitting gathering dust for two years whilst the music’s been handled by a Pi courtesy of Tidal and IDAGIO.

Re: back to the future

3nm? Jesus. When I left Xfab/Mitel/Plessey in 2004 they were just beginning to talk about .18um for foundry work carried out at TSMC!

What sort of lithography gear are they using for that, I wonder?

Re: Nothing In Particular

I had one of these fitted back in June which is supposed to cover gas and electricity. The gas meter relays its info to the electricity meter, which then sends it to the monitor unit and relays the readings to the supplier. Checking my account, I now see the the gas readings are all showing correctl...

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Could you not just rewire it so that the dip bulb is permanently connected to the output of the light switch, and the main is switched on and off in parallel by the dip switch? I’m pretty sure I wired my mini that way in the dim and distant.

19th century monorail

First came across pictures of this when I was a kid, but never knew there was a movie. This could only happen in Ireland!

Re: João Gilberto RIP

Katie Derham did a lovely documentary about the whole Brazilian thing a couple of years ago. Worth a watch if you have an idle hour.

Re: Nothing In Particular

The BT HomeHub 6 is the same device as the EE SmartHub, so probably suffers from the same problem of not automatically switch from ADSL to FTTP when it’s supposed to. When your fibre goes live, if it doesn’t connect automatically you’ll have to do a factory reset by poking something in the reset hol...

Nice simple bit of blues rock. First band I ever saw live, about a month before this was shot.
