Re: I got a job today

I had a good interview just have to wait to here. I could have it. I nailed the technical questions. They both looked at each other and said "were happy with that". One on soundness one on medium pressure regulators. “Do you have Met1?” Yes. I also had CODNESP1 2011 to 2016 which I could show them a...

Re: I got a job today

So yesterday I drove to the Scarborough depot to get the pie of the land and make sure I knew where to go. I saw a White Shirt very crisply turned out oh and an as yet unmarked new Transit Custome. “Could that be mine before it goes to the signing?” Live in hope, probs the old wreck little van looki...

Re: I got a job today

I have my interview for Northern Gas Network today. I’m nervous as Hell. Two nights ag I lay in bed anxious all night listening to Diana’s breathing. Roxy sleeps at foot of Sam’s bed but being Sam’s 23 with a chaotic body rhythm he hadn’t called her up to bed by 4 am so when she smelled me on landin...

Re: Resto-mod cars.

My personal old Merc van Was made just after Mercedes made the mistake of using water based primer and their cars and vans were rust buckets, but mine was after they realised, so mine is solid. But has a lot of surface rust. I like the honesty of the patena, I don’t like old vehicles looking newer t...

Re: Symmetric Reichert 300B push-pull

I'm having second thoughts about the 6AH4 as driver. Re-reading Morgan Jones this morning, he claims that sample-to-sample variations can be more variable for valves not designed for audio use. He apparently tested 30 6BX7's (similar to the 6AH4) and found the distortion performance varied by a fac...

Re: New SE With Triode Mode KT120/150

Sound has been getting increasingly fizzy and generally crap over the past day or so. Been under the hood with a meter and to cut a long story short, the KT120s are shot. Rather than a gradual deterioration over weeks, they went bad surprisingly quickly. They only lasted 10 years. PAH! What a swizz...

I’m sat among those idiots bringing their double figures of children swarming the pavements disrespecting residents. Mostly from towns where such demographics led to last nights changes.

Re: I got a job today

Yes Nick, buses. A manager at Liberty Gas texted yesterday: “Hi Paul Are you still working for yourself? We have some service work up your way for Chevin housing if you are interested.” It appears that quite a few companies are suddenly waking up to general increased activity. Some companies / organ...
