    Re: So Much For This Crazy Theory

    Depends on whether you "dig down" with a spade or a teaspoon. The current issue of Physics Today (published by the American Institute of Physics) has an article on "The Math behind Epidemics" which...

    Re: Lifetime warranty - with new older stuff?

    I have always regarded "lifetime guarantee" to mean it will work until it fails and then the guarantee lapses. Makes perfect sense.

    Re: Window 10 2009 Out now

    Re: Interesting

    US 2.7%
    Russia 1.7%
    UK 6.8%
    Australia 3.3%...

    Re: Really Big Hard Drive

    My first encounter with a disk drive was at Uni in Europe in the early 70's. The IBM drive unit was literally the size of a washing machine. To insert the massive disk pack you opened the top of the...

    Re: Any Zoom experts here?

    Today was the first opportunity to check the changed sound setup for this morning's Zoom meeting. I tried Agent_24's suggestion and sure enough, that did the trick and the sound came though the TV.

    Re: LED bulbs: placement?

    Re: LED bulbs: placement?

    Correct that LEDs don't like too much heat, but the circuitry they contain can get quite hot, hence the advice against mounting them in enclosed fittings.

    Re: Light bulbs - how much wattage do you use?

    Moving to LEDs is a no-brainer. Our living room uses 4x15W wall mounted fittings, passage ways & stairs typically 9W. Also have two 5W free-standing reading lamps.

    We had one of those in Wellington several weeks ago (can't remember exactly when).
    It was a quite spectacular sight. Cloud conditions have to be just right.

    Yes, I used to process my own films a couple of centuries ago. It was fun then, but I prefer digital. As for vinyl records - I find that craze hysterically funny. Watch out - the zombies are coming!
