Many of the older correspondents may own much loved vintage scanners etc and would have found when trying to set them up on a new system they no longer work despite having the software that has worked fine for 30 years. The reason for this is that the nice people at Redmond wishing us to use shiny new equipment no longer supply the feature NVDTM that enables equipment that uses 16 bit code on a 32 bit system to operate. All is not lost the NVDTM feature can be downloaded from many sources and inserted into the system via DISM with instructions readily available how to do this after which everything works fine.
Six days ago I had a large's area of my upper chest numbed to facilitate the the fitting of a pace maker which has been a great success. There is still much irritation in this area which makes sleeping difficult has this effect been reported before as I was not warned about it
It is not unusual for VIP,s to be offered a financial deal by their sexual partners to not to publish was such an offer made to the Duke if so why did he refuse to pay up? Was the offer such an excessive sum or did he think he could bluff it out ?
The UK system had 377 active lines and was supposed to interlace but in reality only high grade monitors did infact interlace virtually all domestic receivers simply paired the frames up giving a 188 llne picture how ever carefully one tried to adjust them. The worlds first TV system when we invented TV used a lot of German and American equipment
There where many problems the only wide band channel was an experimental satelite with a band width of 5MB's and the original TV standard was 525 lines 60 frames and the UK standard was 405 lines 50 frames. It was not a great success !
The Hubble telescope started life during the "cold war" as a modified version of a high technology reconnaissance satellite system. I understud about six units were built but never put into service. As the cost consists mostly of the research and develop time would it not have been expedient to have built at least one spare
Each morning I am awakened to Sky TVs,s world wide temperature chart and it is interesting to compare temperatures between places such as Kuwait and Stanley for most of the year Kuwait is 40°C hotter but occasionally for one or two days of the year Stanley is hotter!. Today is the summer equinox and it is a strange fact that the summer and winter ones in the UK tend to have the same temperatures in the 10 to 12 degree range. There are plans afoot to widen the orbit of the Earth to reduce global heating I hope nothing comes of it as it will spoil the eclipses
I have started to use the efficient deaf aid issued by the NHS 3 three years ago and have been reading all I can find. All the adverts emphasize how inconspicuous they are as if there was something deeply shameful about being deaf (like having (HIV), I would be happy to wear a gaming head set if it did a good job I am in no way ashamed of being deaf !
Before the war to obtain an abortion was very expensive and illegal (the death penalty prescribed in some counties for practitioners). If your pet dog (bitch) or racehorse was inseminated the vets had a ready remedy, were these drugs any use in humans
History or maybe myth records cases of aged Popes wishing to extend their lives or prisoners condemned to die of starvation being kept alive by their daughters. It would not be difficult for political leaders in the old days with plenty of slaves and no ethics commutes to get adequate supplies but experiment might be difficult today, would there be digestive problems ?
While trying to understand an article on Einsteinium I found out that it not only astronomers that delight in strange non SI units (describing the power output or stars in Ergs ) but also spectroposists delight in strange units too quoting frequency in inverse cm wave Numbers and distance in Angstoms !. I understand this probably reflects the technology of 150 years ago or are they just trying to make it hard to under stand? have they considered writting in Latin!
