  1. Happy birthday baker headphone man!
  2. Alternatively, Sigourney Weaver in the UK comedy series Doc Martin. There are no aliens...
  3. I think you could get away with that sort of shenanigans to automatically shoot an intruder in the 1880's. I was amused, though, to read in the link above that "The Brineys and Katko then joined together in a lawsuit against the neighbor..."
  4. I thought the revolver/rodent trap was spoof - so I looked it up on the US patent office website. It isn't. It also says that it can be used to automatically shoot burglars. Revolver.pdf or any other things
  5. OK - I sprung for a Chinese one from an eBay seller for sixty quid and free shipping. We'll see. It'll take a couple of weeks to get here. Chinese can often be quite good with what they say it is worth on the customs form, so it sneaks past customs.
  6. The Entech meter has of course been improved upon by the Chinese https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07NY21XG2?pf_rd_r=1BCER1ZTYCX3V67DZW7G&pf_rd_p=e632fea2-678f-4848-9a97-bcecda59cb4e . There is an image of the circuit board; trivial it is not. At least the Chinese one shows a value in millivolts of noise, and does not have a random knob. So there is at least a pretense of it being an objective measurement rather than Entech's random number. Looking further it covers 10kHz to 10MHz, much wider than Entech's, and is multi-standard - so you can plug it into both 120V 60Hz and 240V 50Hz.
  7. I'm a bit skeptical about the Entech meters, and what they are actually measuring. I have heard it said that they look in the band 300kHz to 700kHz, so the am medium wave radio band. Whether that is representative of problems in audio is debatable. After all audio gear cheerfully picks up 800+ MHz from mobile phones, Monster Cable had a variant of the Entech meter that they provided to their cable and conditioner outlets so that a sales person could demonstrate how good the product was. Same as Shunyata do now. I'm trying to buy one just out of curiousity. If I snag one for not much, I'll do some tests (oh and probably take the back off to find out what is in there...).
  8. Well that is just weird. Almost as weird as the Portsmouth Sinfonia
  9. Enough to make you feel horny
  10. It is a very, very long time since I listened to King Crimson, although I did back in the early days (like In the Court of the Crimson King; pass the walking frame). Far too far back to remember who was in the band. I only twigged when I was looking up how old Toyah Wilcox was. I knew she must be getting on, and was gobsmacked how young looking and energetic she is at 62.
  11. Double surprise - Robert Fripp, her husband playing the guitar, was one of the founders of King Crimson!
  12. Great actor - RIP Ian Holm.
