Re: A little light humour

A Group of guys, all turning 40, discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at Wetherspoons in Uxbridge because the waitresses had big breasts and wore mini-skirts. Ten years later, at age 50, the friends once again discussed where they should meet for lun...

Re: Remember These?

Need to read this thread: I still have a box of 13E1s that were destined many years ago for a "Crystal Palace" amp. 2 are in poor shape (heavily silvered) but the others look good. I've never tested these as the heater requirements just were huge (around 30W ISTR) and I just didn't have anything tha...

Wirewound pot. Probably slotted adjustment. Hum buck?

Re: Last Hurrah!

...Thanks for the superb photo. As a wholly unconnected aside, many years ago, I gave Ernest Thessiger a lift to the South Kensington underground. That's awesome. I never met him, though he called Hugh Carless, the best man at my parents wedding, a "pansy" ! Carless was travelling with Eric Newby i...

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Not exactly a track, but a really interesting piece about the score for the film, "Dunkirk"...

Last Hurrah!

Just had to share this. Photo of my trusty Jeep from Monday this week, on the edge of the Rub' al Khali desert, also known as the Empty Quarter, close to the Saudi Border, 20km south of Mezairaa (in the al Liwa oasis). Just my wife and I and Stoffel, my Jeep. This'll be our last trip before I return...

Ha!
You still missed the "Hipster" dig :)

I was thinking that a Grumpy Hipster would be a "Gripster", but it turns out that a gripster is a "Greying Hipster", so two birds with one stone!
