In the days of DOS, a colleague was away for a day or two. I took his monitor (CRT of course) apart and swapped the scan coil connections, vertical and horizontal, and scattered his disk with files called MIRROR.BAT & RORRIM.COM and such. In the end he gave up and had to ask...
It's the cathode that loses emissivity.
In some valves, usually those aimed at battery powered equipment, the heater and cathode are an item.
Valves used in TVs usually had indirectly heated cathodes.
Obviously, if you can still piss without the aid of a bag, you're too young to remember this stuff...
Yep. Cats catch them alright.
Then bring them in through the cat flap, and bat them around the floor for a bit until they end up under the fridge.
No internet connection is necessary to find the rodent corpse. After a week or two, you can just follow your nose. Or the trail of maggots.
Cats are the perfect solution...
Hey!! Less of the bashing 60-70 year old guys! (Guess who's just had a significant birthday...)
The problem is not their age, it is that they are wilfully thick, stupid politicians(*) pandering to the lowest electoral denominator.
(*) Other types of politician are available, but are becoming difficult to find in this post-truth, post-science, post-expert age.
>The British public have gradually acknowledged that double entendres are an integral part of the culture. They were once the preserve of a trip to the seaside or the music hall.
Never listened to "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue" then? Purveyor of juicy double-entendre to the middle classes since the early 70's.
Doesn't have to be traffic analysis of the downlink. What if the iPlayer client generated uplink packets of known length and timing? It could make a relatively easily detected signal. The client could modulate the length & timing of the UL packets to pass info of limited bandwidth.
Here you are. Read on. And be prepared to be patronised...
So now you can see that there's nothing to be worried about.
No, really, there isn't.
Nothing at all....
> Where precisely?
I'm pleased for your parents, that they can receive DAB well, living out in the sticks as they do.
I live in a heavily populated area round Wokingham & Bracknell. Sadly, the DAB reception here is utterly crap for the multiplex carrying the national BBC stations. The nearest transmitter of said multiplex is at Hemdean, about 20 miles away. We have one DAB radio in the house. It almost works properly if placed in an upstairs room next to the window. Needless to say I have no intention of buying any more, and I will be highly annoyed with any politician who renders useless the various VHF FM radios we posses by turning off the signal.
The Amazon link make the lens useless.
I booted the beta CD. Wanted to see whether cclive (an on-line video ripper available in 12.04) is available in 12.10. So I type 'cclive' in the lens, and immediately get a load ads for stuff from Amazon, largely pertaining to the band '10cc'. Nothing at all about 'cclive' the application....
