the water analogy by Bill Wright[_3_]
I have a hosepipe with a tap on the end, fed from a tap on the wall. If I turn the tap on the wall off and then turn the tap at the end of the hose on there a momentary surge of water. But if I turn a switch off that feeds a wire then connect a lamp to the other end of the wire the lamp doesn't glow even momentarily. Does this mean the water analogy has failed, or can the surge of water be...

The bells at York by Bill Wright[_3_]
I just signed the petition "Allow the York Minster bell ringers to ring!" and wonder if you could add your name too. The more support we can get the better chance we have of succeeding.

trouble with a French bank: advice? by Bill Wright[_3_]
An elderly relative planned to live in France but the plan failed, for reasons that are irrelevant here. He had deposited E10,000 in Bank Agricole when his plan fell through. Three months ago he asked for the money to be transferred to his English bank. Despite repeated requests he is getting nowhere. The bank seems to ignoring him, or stonewalling him. Is there any organisation in the UK...

Bletchely Park by Brian Gaff
On the mention of the bell ringers in the last thread, I was reminded of what has happened at this site, where a new 'guard' is in to handle the grants they got, and one of the things they did was to get rid of a lot of volunteers and shove a lot of exhibits behind glass and chuck out the local radio club and its vintage equipment exhibition from one of the huts. Seems corporate...

Interesting item by Woody[_5_]
For anyone who did not hear it I would suggest digging in iPlayer for an interview done my Jon Humphrys on the Today programme Saturday 15/10/16 at a little after 08:45 (so running time of 1hr 45m or thereabouts.) It was with Professor John Goodenough of the University of Texas at Austin. He is the man who invented Lithium-Ion batteries and at 94 he still works every day at the University....

Christmas is hear! by Brian Gaff
True Christmas is now broadcasting on Freeview. Isn't it great? No... I also noticed while flipping around last night that one of the jewellery selling channels has a programme called Chestnuts roasting on an Opal fire or something along those lines. Has that Bethlehem company started their selling yet on QVC? I'm sure Smoothe Christmas can be only a month or so away.

Double standards by Brian Gaff
Recently I've become aware that radio phone ins are being sanitised far more than they used to be. Words like Bloody and crap are now not allowed and they don't even like you to mention Amazon either. However, on the telly, even before what is laughingly called the watershed, Bloody seems to be allowed as part of cockney speak, and the Moonbeam Song by Neilson is played on national radio,...

SOT - connecting a dashcam to a TV by Jeff Layman[_2_]
I just replaced my dashcam as the old one wouldn't loop record. Other than that it seemed ok, so I wondered about using it as a video camera as it has an "AV" socket. The Chinglish manual isn't much help. All it refers to is setting either PAL or NTSC, and 50Hz or 60Hz. So I set it to PAL and 50Hz. The camera didn't come with any video connectors, but I have a 2.5mm jack plug with a short...

Could 'whistling' kill your PVR? by Paul D Smith[_2_]
Umm, I wonder if a nefarious TV show could send you a tone that kills your PVR. Perhaps embedded in an advert for the latest new PVR from insert manufacturer as a way to boost sales? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-37337868

How long are remote controls supposed to last? by Brian Gaff
I have a very old denon one which has been in the wars since 1990 and it still works as does the unit its for. More recent tvs and set top box and cd players dvds etc, seem to have remote creeping death after a couple of years. When you open them up you find that the bit where the rubber buttons push down and short out the ridged bit on the pcb are either fully of slightly sticky particles...

DTT box peculiarity by Bill Wright[_3_]
I have a fairly elderly Humax SD DTT box in the motorhome, for use when there are trees in the way of the satellite. This was the situation this week at Rowntree Park, York. The imbecile warden put us on a wedge-shaped pitch, then got us up the next morning to say we would have to disconnect the trailer because we were less than 6m from the hypothetical position of the van on the next...

ITV Player & Victoria by pinnerite
Last night my wife got me to locate last week's 'Victoria' episode on ITV Player. It started well enough but after about 15 minutes it stopped. She blames me because I own the screwdrivers. :( -- Mageia 5 for x86_64, Kernel:4.4.16-desktop-1.mga5 KDE version 4.14.5 on an AMD Phenom II X4 Black edition.
