Population growth by Bill Wright[_3_]
Apparently the ONC tells us that the population will increase by 10 million by 2035 as the direct and indirect results of immigration. The report on the BBC website distorts the facts in several important ways. If the matter makes to the broadcast BBC news please let me know. I suspect that if it does it will be minimised. Just seen it on Sky News. Quite a good report. Bill

satellite meter for sale by Bill Wright[_3_]
https://www.dropbox.com/s/s0tyfu06onmyawp/IMG_20151101_030355.jpg?dl=0 I bought this some years ago; can't remember exactly when but I'll guess it was about 2003. I bought it for a specific job, where someone had to go to 130 outlets to check the quality and quantity of signal from a system that carried Astra 28E. The meter was used for that job, where it was simply switched on and carried...

What is cut off bandwidth for iPlayer ? by Phi
I don't seem to be able to maintain sufficient bandwidth to watch BBC iPlayer without Beeb saying you've not got enough now. Seems to be a new problem.

Fun with subtitles by Davey
Yesterday, on either Ch. 4 or 5, the spoken word was presumably: "He can't process his emotions". But the subtitle version came up as: "He can't progress his motions", which is an entirely different matter. Oops. And on the Andrew Marr show this morning, Teresa May was described as the person most likely to lead the Conservative Part

BBC One HD London broadcasting regional progs by [email protected]
Last week the BBC1 HD channel in London was broadcasting Kents Inside Out instead of the London one on the SD channel. Yesterday it was Cornwalls version! Still, thats better than just swimming hippos which is what is usually there when regional programming is underway. Why are the BBC having such problems showing the correct , if any , regional programming on its HD channels? -- Spud

Impressed with my own cleverness by Bill Wright[_3_]
Paul said, "My van radio is making a weird noise. It's being getting worse and worse for weeks and it's driving me bonkers. Get in and tell me what's doing it." He put the radio on AM and it sounded fine. "It only does it when I'm driving. Is it the alternator do you think?" He moved the van a couple of feet and it did it. "There!" he said. "That!" I said, "Your aerial is shorting to the van...

t Those long gone days again by Brian-Gaff
I can remember when I worked for Redifussion (which I could never spell properly), one year while on holiday with my parents, my Father took me to a site on the south Downs where the signals were received for the south coast cable operations for the company. The mast was very impressive and had some stacked arrays pointing in various directions receiving the ITV and BBC South and London...

OT why do they do this to us? by Bill Wright[_3_]
Hil's iPhone has been demanding to download an update for weeks, so this teatime, in a fit of insanity, I agreed. Two hours later the phone was all but useless. No connection to the network, etc. I fiddled around (my efforts always remind me of a very old picture I saw once of black men in the jungle who had come across a wireless set and were trying to figure where the voice came from) and...

Unimpressed with my own dottiness by Bill Wright[_3_]
Paul emailed. Would I like a nice new cap lamp? He meant one of those things that fit on your head. He'd been on the internet buying things whilst drunk, and had wanted a caplamp that ran from AAA cells, so it was small and light. His squiffy eyes misinterpreted the picture and the batteries turned out to be quite big nickel metal whatsit ones, not AAAs as he'd assumed. So the lamp was much...
