Re: A worrying development

Yes, the early viruses propagated via floppy discs, an SD card is only an updated device serving the same purpose!

Re: When i was a child

Speaking as a reasonably fit 67yo I'm quite glad I didn't die at 65. However I agree about ending my days dribbling in a care home, if I get to that stage I'll start researching euthanasia!

Re: Adobe updates

Considering the unholy mess Adobe have made of Adobe Reader over the last few years (imho!) I'm steering clear of their other stuff! I still use Photsop CS4 occasionally but have no intention of...

Re: Life saving app...

I believe it doesn't need a signal to work, but of course you can't summon the emergency services without one!

Re: Jensen Interceptor

FF stood for Ferguson Formula (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferguson_Research), the type of 4WD Jensen used.


Ah! Just noticed there's a page 2 of this thread and you already know that!

And me. It's generally easier to get the card out than fiddle about with the cover over the USB/HDMI sockets.

Re: Do We Rely Too Much on Electricity?

The original prototype that became the Pacer, LEV-1 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Rail_railbuses#/media/File:LEV1_at_Weybourne_Station.jpg), was at the Wensleydale Railway for a while and I...

Re: Do We Rely Too Much on Electricity?

Expect the lights to go out following a no-deal Brexit then! Many of our power stations are owned by overseas companies, mostly EU.

The pumped storage stations (like Dinorwig...

Re: A worrying development

They'll always start with the biggest user base which is one reason there is far more Windows malware than Apple or Linux! A bit scary that they can get in via the USB interface though.

Re: Do We Rely Too Much on Electricity?

The early Sprinters were pretty dreadful too. As it happens I was coming home on the train one day recently, and the formation was a 158 two-car Sprinter plus a single 150 car at the back. The two...

Re: Do We Rely Too Much on Electricity?

Like Windows, the "Start" button has a "Shut Down" option which stops the OS, after which you can remove the power. If you're running it from the command line, then type "shutdown -h now".

Assuming you know the basics of Linux :). I have several, two of which form a network music player; one is a server which holds all (well most) of my CDs as lossless FLAC files, the other is a player...

Re: Do We Rely Too Much on Electricity?

Hard to believe they both came from the same organisation! The Pacer was and is an abomination (imho) whereas the HST pretty much saved British Rail, and still holds the world speed record for...

Re: Do We Rely Too Much on Electricity?

So much for fail-safe design, that's appalling. It would never have happened in the BREL days ;). Maybe they used Raspberry Pi computers, you have to shut those down properly before removing power...

Surely all this cannot be the reason the government wants us all to have Smart Meters. Can it? :rolleyes:. [/cynic]

Re: Is there Multi-spot metering?

In my opinion it has been superceded by Digital ESP Metering which simultaneously meters a large number of areas of the image, works out the overall average, and offers a histogram display. The...

Re: Is there Multi-spot metering?

True and it worked very well in my experience when used with slide film. With b+w however the requirements are a bit different as it's important to expose sufficiently if you want to retain shadow...

Re: Is there Multi-spot metering?

Mine too John, that multi-spot metering was really valuable. It had some tricks up its sleeve too, for example if you took two spots in one area and one in another, the average would be weighted...
