Overheard the first night in the restaurant:

"We went, and they came, and they came again?"

No, have no idea what about. :shock:

Re: Nothing In Particular

Yep, LED is the way to go, especially over short lived expensive halogens. More lumins from units that will (probably) outlive you and me and cost a fraction to run. I went from a total of 500W halogen to 70W with LED, and now even lower, as the performance of LED’s has got even better so you might ...

Re: Manafort Trial

Am I missing something? Why is this so significant? I have absolutely no time for Trump and am an avid news media reader. The Manafort Trial is not hitting the headlines. Maybe I need to look deeper?

Mark, what’s your take on this and why have you highlighted it?

Re: Yorkshire Hi-Fi Club

Shame. I can’t make it. I’ll be just five days post-op after another knee replacement surgery, probably only 2nd day home. Hope it goes well, though.

Re: Yorkshire Hi-Fi Club

I so want to join in. I have something pretty special TT wise to present and want to do it, but frankly, Halifax is a step too far from Bristol, especially as I’d be on my own for the journey there and back. I don’t handle this sort of stuff so well these days, especially doing it on my own. Sorry, ...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Them Aldi maintainance stands at £30 are good value, don’t you think? Used mine twice now on my bike and son has also benefitted. Much better than crocking this 60+ old back, IYNWIM. :D
