Do you smile when you're alone?

Bill


Only when I see or hear something to smile at.


What if you think an amusing thought?

With an algebraic equation.


That proves what I told the maths teacher is true: Algebra is a load
of ********.


I'm not very good at it either - but I don't blame the science.


No faith in your own judgement then.

At first glance it seems only the Bang & Olufsen tellies are getting
any bids. I wonder if there's something special about the name?

Those Sony monitors will just be for 625 line analogue PAL video, and
mostly with just 14" screens. Can anybody really have a use for them?
As they're all "Buy it now" sales, it's impossible to tell if anybody
actually does. I doubt it though.

If you doubt the interest in vintage TV, take look at this:

http://www.tech-retro.com/Aurora_Des...Converter.html

Broadcast quality 405-line signals on any Band I/III channel for around 200
- most of this model being sold in Britain, of course.

They even output Test-card C if there is no 625-line input.



And that's the problem, it's 200.

Plus, all your source material has to be in 625 "format".

Wouldn't it be better to do it with a computer, and a graphics card
capable of outputting 405 directly costing 5-10?
Like I'm doing here?

Set is a Cossor 918 from 1949/50

Peto Scott possible relation?...


He's a regular contributor to http://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/
and I've recently had an email exchange with him. I was tempted to
mention that, but I strongly suspect he will have heard it, ad
nauseam!

T2 has been broadcast around (I'm guessing) 10 years or so now?


No, just over 7.

Started from Crystal Palace and Winter Hill late 2009 I think.
A few more sites were added in 2010, then it kicked in as DSO hit
each new area.


Yes, we had a talk from the bloke who designed T2 at KW in Dec.
2009 and saw the prototype RX (it looked like Orac!). Launch
was either just about to happen or had just happened (days).

No it doesn't, because 'five times smaller' is nonsensical,
meaningless twaddle.

And yet even *you* know what it means.

You're like the people who insist it's wrong to end with a
preposition. Fortunately, you don't get to define the language.

I'm more like the people who well understand what 'I done that
yesterday' means but nevertheless regard those who say it as thick,
uneducated and ignorant.

You must of been better educated than them.


"You must of"? I think I must *have* been educated better than you :-)


So much for my feeble attempt at humour then...

Well, *I* recognised the "Pedant Baiting" in that post. :-)
