Re: Sars-Cov-2 stuff

How a £20 gadget could save lives. "One of the mysteries of Covid-19 is why oxygen levels in the blood can drop to dangerously low levels without the patient noticing. It is known as "silent hypoxia". As a result, patients have been arriving in hospital in far worse health than they realised and, in...

I had noticed that before, but never got round to actually watching it till now.

Seems a few wood-turners are using acrylics these days.

I'm surprised at the lack of heat, the MoFo thread on DIY Audio makes a lot of the need for big heatsinks but I'm only measuring a very small rise in the heatsink temperature (biased at 1.7A).
That'll be the "soft" aluminium. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Sars-Cov-2 stuff

Just had a phone call to book me in for my first jab. :)

Sunday 24th Jan @ 12:20, but get there 20 mins early. Lavenham, which is about 40 mins drive.

From what I've been told you sit in the car, and they call you in when they are ready. Sounds like they are properly organised.

Re: Nothing In Particular

I saw a suggestion to try going for 24 hours without complaining, and see how you feel afterwards.

Worth a try ?

Might not be so easy in these troubled times, but positive thoughts beget positive actions. :)

Microwave oven transformers (MOT) can be relatively inexpensive.

Re: Low pass bass preamplifier.

You are having a subwoofer? I'm going to try driving the 18" bass unit separately from the mid range and tweeter. I've felt for a while that the 18" needed more "oomph", so this is a cheap and relatively easy way to have a go. The Chinese bass preamp has two pots, one for bass frequency and one for...

Low pass bass preamplifier.

My two Chinese low pass bass pre-amp kits were delivered today, very quick and no obvious problems with customs. Total value for 2 was £7.98. I 've got to populate the boards, then wire everything up to my 50W chip amp. Might be a while before the next update. :wink: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Low-P...

when within that 1/2 hour window, she should have been observed for 15 minutes in case of reaction, before she left .
Absolutely NO observation afterwards Paul.

Re: Reel to reel

What came out of it was not mantovani, andy williams, pat boone, or even kajagoogoo! It is some sort of orchestral piece, but it also has moogs or something similar on it :shock: some sort of rather interesting classical fusion..... if thats a thing. Switched on Bach ? I've got it on vinyl somewhere.

Re: Sars-Cov-2 stuff

I took my Mum to have her Covid jab this afternoon. Appointment was for 4PM (16:00) and was advised to turn up 5 mins before. So, we got there about 3:45, and the centre was only just opened, they told me to report at the entrance at 4PM as they were still setting up.. So we sat in the car, and with...

Ah yes, but what is the precise definition of "local" with reference to these restrictions ?

[/quote]

"Stay local means stay in the village, town, or part of the city where you live."

Still a bit vague. :?
