Now they really are watching you...
because I'm still a bit of a geek I'm quite curious to crack the message protocol between the meter and the monitor....then it'll be a case of me watching them watching me.....or something like that.

Re: Nothing In Particular

fwiw I quite like Florence.... whahey!!! we've just had a smart meter(electricity) fitted and I've been like a kiddie in a sweet shop, running around finding out how much things supposedly cost to run....... at the moment my 2a3 costs £0.02 per hour to run..... I'm sure I'll get over the novelty soon.

I was all set to try it on my trusty castell 1/60 when I realised it doesn't have the LL scale, which is needed for the expo.... not all slide rules are created equal... I'm not even going to look for my 4 fig tabl...

's'funny...I don't have a phone and for some reason I keep thinking there are others like me, that don't have one..... I know I'm mistaken but I still keep thinking that...

Re: Fane 12-250TC Retro Speaker.

Indeed Steve. The Pachelbel I played at Owston was a bit disappointing, being quite 'edgy'. I was talking with someone aferwards who commented that it wasn't a very good recording but the reason I wanted to play it was because experience at home is that its an excellent 'prick up your ears' recordi...
