    I'd start there but it might be a good idea to go even lower.

    Terms and Conditions Rants

    I couldn't find a thread to post this to, so here's a new thread. So UPS failed to deliver a package yesterday, just before the long Easter weekend - so now I won't get it until Tuesday next week. Bastards. I thought I'd sign up for real time tracking. I'm taken to a page to set up to get this, and find a tick box that says "I confirm that I've been given enough time to read and understand the UPS Technology Agreement" So I thought I'd click the download button to have a look at it. 96 pages. Doing a word count, it is 58,887 words long Which is almost exactly twice the length of the longest Shakespeare play (Hamlet)! That has to be the outer edge of ridiculous, right? How many lawyers does it take to craft a 58,887 word document? Goes without saying that I did not sign up to their "service".....

    CFA2 (CFP) - current feedback amp I still cannot figure out how to connect them into balanced version of CFA2 (CFP) - current feedback amp as they are single end type of pcb. I know I need four boards, but how do I connect the negative input rail ? Your help is much appreciated.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    That does look like a nice solution for a detachable cable but they did say somewhere it was the first time... ehhh no... SR-Omega...

    Many thanks @spritzer. 1M/5M in the divider would take it down to 483V. Is that the right ballpark or would you take it down even further (this is for a T2)?

    Hahahaha...all very valid points. Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and more often than not, there is no logical reason for loving something or someone :p

    I did it once, on a bus! It was just to show myself that I could!

    The whole concept of luxury tool watches is an oxymoron IMO. I don't love them any less. Your not likely to use your chronograph to calculate the speed of a car across a marked mile. Hell I took my dssd diving, it didn't make me less annoyed by it's height. Just because you won't use it for it's designed function doesn't mean you should write off an entire category of watches. You maybe struck by something you were not expecting.

    Fair point that. I don't even swim, much less dive. So a diver on the wrist is kinda ironic. But i like the lume on divers hahaha

    Well, depending on the older model, especially older models. I owned a Tudor Big Block. The screw-in pushers were my second-least favorite aspect of that watch. It's not worth the irritation if you aren't gonna take the thing diving. I've never accidentally activated a pusher on a Speedy.

    Yes the Daytona uses screw in pushers, but there is no value in buying Daytona's. All trade for premium even older models. A two tone with a zenith movement would likely be your cheapest entry point. However your not going to find that in anything other than broken and beat to hell condition for less than 9k US.

    Yes, love the broad arrow hands. That really catches my eye as compared to the pencil hands on the regular Speedies. Note taken. I was impressed that the Tudor BB Chrono has screw-in pushers. Does the Daytona have a similar type as well?

    The Speedy '57 is a great looking watch. I don't know if that is a fair price (I haven't been in the Speedy market, lately!), but if it is, I'd go for it.

    The big issues is the pusher gaskets. People do take them diving, but accidentally activating the pushers while underwater will let water into the watch.

    Thanks for the pointer there. A FOIS popped up for sale but no cards. Bummer.

    Speedys are nice, just be aware that most are 50m water resistance. It's splash proof for sure but nothing more than that. If this is a collection of one that should be noted.
