Re: Office Conversation of the Day

I had an electric shock machine. I think it was handed down from my father or someone that he knew. All you got was a slight sensation. Your granny would have liked it. Mine did. TJH We made our own from relays ! A good clunky relay with a 9V battery, coil wired in series with a normally-closed con...

Re: Office Conversation of the Day

Ah, remember my sister reading 'Twinkle' - we named one of our cats after it (sheer laziness, only slightly better than 'Cat')

Dandy, Beano, Cor(?!), Whizzer & Chips(or something)
Moved up to Warlord and Bullet (both from DC Thompson of Dundee, as were Beano and Dandy) - an expensive 5p and 7p respectively when they were first published

Re: Overskredet sparvhuje

It was a manned police helicopter what did for us, Guv. We had seen it hovering in the skies and continued on our merry*** way, until we were stopped by a police car further down the road and had to cough up 50 Kroner on the spot. Sounds a bit cheap, unless the Krona has been revalued - I know it's...

Re: GU10 halogen (?) bulb replacements

The halogen GU10s I replaced were Diall brand - they had all gone within 5 months of my moving in (obviously don't know how long they had been there...)

Re: A bigger bang

There was a (probable) full-on nuclear explosion in the South Atlantic in the late 1970s detected by US satellite(s) - don't think they ever worked out 'whodunnit'
I would guess modern monitoring satellites would have picked up this event, although it wouldn't have the typical double flash of a nuke

Re: GU10 halogen (?) bulb replacements

I ended up replacing the halogens with 6 x 'Philips LED Classic 4.6 W GU10s' for c £14 -
They are working fine so far: good light, run cool, and the full six use less power than one of the old halogens

Re: Beerdetectorists; who brews this beer?

Does it not say on the bottle (beyond brewed in Scotland) eg postcode? I guess not. The Daylesford sites says "Our organic beers are vegan-friendly and made in a brewery that specializes in craft, experimental beer" so probably not Carlsberg Northampton, but doesn't narrow it down much.. [...

Re: O2 Network

Cell info display is something different
Test mode (engineering mode/field test) is usually hidden.
on my old 6110 i had to key in some long code to access it (looked like #*#*1234567*#*#) a Google may find the relevant code IF it's available on your phone

Re: Another Excel needed

wouldn't work for all zeroes?

I don't like big nested statements
I tend to concatenate the columns and use a table with vlookup
Easier if you use y and n rather than 1 and 0
So you may get yyny, yyyn etc

Re: O2 Network

If you have test mode on your antique phone you can see what your current 'best server' is (obviously only stuff that is on air) ,
It will show cell id rather than site number, but the LAC/cell ID combination is unique to a site (the LAC defines a cell cluster for paging purposes)

If we had a lexicon of Melspeak, we cound understand her lacuna. Using 'lexicon' rather than the more correct (in my opinion) 'glossary' is just wilful obfuscation :) Unless I meant lexicon, of course.

Wow, it's creeping in here at my new place. Just had this from the boss. "I will be in a position to confirm on Tuesday once the amounts have been agreed. If there are any issues we will revert immediately." I hope there are no issues. What will we revert to? The primordial slime? Funnily...
