Nope. It's pointless. At least for the foreseeable future... I just felt the need to whip the BBC table into Excel and play...

Re: Nothing In Particular

The joys of Excel. Looking at the results below, the votes required per seat under the first-past-the-post system are insane and deeply favour the main parties. Note that under PR, the SNP would lose 23 seats, the Lib Dems would gain 64 and the Tories wouldn't have an overall majority... ...and the ...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Just surprised that the LDs have pretty much been wiped out even though they got 13% of the vote. Where we live it was always going to be conservative, but with such a dire choice of "leaders", I guess the slightly less worse option was chosen. SNP will make a lot of noise but are essentially toothl...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Latest bench - designed by Clem Churchill. This one's going to Chartwell. Got to make three more. Mega impressed. :notworthy: Ta. The back is very complex as it has loads of joints that are curved and at odd angles. In terms of man-hours, we're looking at about 100-150 and about 600 quid for the wo...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Oh dear... The 3009 needs a rewire..... Thought I could just get away with doing a phono socket conversion, but the blue wire has a break in it somewhere. Piggin ell. At least it's a fairly easy job with one of these SME arms no longer available: http://www.audio-talk.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3...

SME arms no longer available...

This from another forum; SME announced on 3rd December that they were withdrawing from supplying separate pickup arms, and with immediate effect would only supply SME arms as part of an SME turntable package. Which essentially triples the entry cost (or more). At the top end that is >£35k and at the...

I'm on Proserver special edition, and no flash.

Windows 10 & Chrome.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Hobbits house! I'm not the one with hairy feet and a dodgy barnet, Mr. B :) I can just get an 8x4 sheet of wood into the cellar, where I can render it into whatever's needed. Just one million times more convenient than having to wait for a dry day and then assemble everything outside in the garden....
