from the housing association girl by Bill Wright[_2_]
"They have all had new faces and this has loosened their wires." Turned out the bungalows had had new fascia boards fitted and some of the tap-off lines, which ran along them, has been left loose. Bill

A question about why some channels never put out AD by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I was just wondering how it is than channels like CBS Action and reality and horror and many other channels on Freeview never seem to use AD at all, even if say, Movie Mix screen one with AD originally its not available on the transmission. I was under the impression that after a certain time all channels had to do a certain amount of audio described TV. Have they found a loophole, and if...

Got the wind up by Bill Wright[_2_]
Wind power today is working at around one two hundredth of installed capacity. So what? Installed capacity is only about 10GW, so the shortfall is easily made up. But what will happen in 2020 when we will have, by all accounts, 15% of all our energy (not just electricity) coming from wind? This 15% equates to around 30% of electricity supply or 20GW. On a still day we will lose 99.5% of...

Why have I done this? by Bill Wright[_2_]
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11023364/IMG_20150404_033147.jpg Why have I done this? It is not for any suicidal or homicidal reason, not is it anything to do with generators or inverters. The application will be completely safe and sensible. Care to guess? Bill

OT BBC Bias by Bill Wright[_2_]
Yesterday on PM there was an item about railway engineering works: "There are a few things that can strike terror in the heart and leave you sinking though your chair, and no I'm not talking about a UKIP/Tory coalition, I'm talking about railway engineering works." Not bad eh? Just thirty days or so before a General Election! Bill

BBC Advertising by alan_m
The BBC often advertise their own offerings on TV between program breaks but what is the logic of advertising toady's upcoming weather when the advert contains 90% of the information you may want for the day but you have to wait 15 minutes for more detail. Paraphasing, some places will be overcast with temperatures of 10C, other places will see the sun which will push up the temperatures to...

projecting an image by Bill Wright[_2_]
I need to project or otherwise place an image on a wooden board so I can paint it on the board by using it as a guide. I don't have an overhead projector. I have some transparent media for a laser printer and I have a 60 year old 6cm projector in the loft but I don't want to dig it out and the bulb will blow and the whole thing will be annoying. Isn't there some way the old painter guys used...

OT - Virgin Media Tivo by David[_13_]
Well, really probably on topic but not in line with most of the current posting ;-) Now the Virgin Media web site is so user aggressive (or I am so slow on the uptake) that I can't really work out what I can do with the Tivo and a home network. I have got as far as managing the Tivo from my Windows PC as long as I use Firefox and not Chrome (FFS why??). Not even a mention of IE.
