OT the telephone network by Bill Wright[_3_]
Does anyone know where I can find a map showing where all the phone lines go; the routes from the exchanges to the premises and/or the streetboxes? Is there a UK newsgroup that discusses such things? Bill

Antiference six element FM aerial. It was on my roof for a few years but now I've taken it down. Condition is perfect. Anyone got a use for it? Buyer collects. It comes into two halves easily for transport. Bill

Muffled microphone syndrome. by Brian Gaff
Is it me or do the BBC seem to have somebody putting lapel mikes on people in such a way that they all sound like they are muffled? I'm assuming its that type of mike as studio stuff sounds good still. Its obvious sometimes as you can often hear rustling from clothing. Weather presenters seem to...

Singapore F1 1st Practice - strange problem with recording by David[_20_]
I record the F1 GP on two boxes, the Virgin Tivo and the FreeSat Humax. In both cases FP1 stopped about 2 minutes in. On the Tivo it looked as though there should be about 1 hour 45 minutes but it wouldn't skip past the first couple of minutes. Has anyone else encountered this or am I the only...

Watching British TV abroad by Norman Wells[_7_]
On past holidays in Spain I've taken a tablet computer and have been able to watch the good old Beeb on Filmon.tv. Now though it seems they've gone over to a subscription only model, which is over the top expensive for just a short break. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience of...

battery tools are crap by Bill Wright[_3_]
It sounds so attractive! No power cord! Use it where there's no mains! But battery tools are rubbish compared to 110V or mains ones. Now I don't do site work any more I can buy mains powered tools, and what a revelation they are! Firstly there's the fact that a mains powered tool can cost less...

Polaroid (ASDA) TVs by AnthonyL
Anyone any experience of these Polaroid TVs? 50" Full HD Smart LED at 299. The old 28" is just too small especially for sports. Not bothered about internet connectivity as not fast enough broadband. -- AnthonyL

10s delay on Gt. North Run by [email protected]
Just curious why the Great North Run, BBC1 is not in real time at the moment. Delayed by 10s according to its digital clock at the starting point relative to my small collection of radio controlled clocks at home. I think this is a bit too much to be accounted for by digital coding delays etc.

Signing by Andy Burns[_12_]
I'm aware that British and American sign languages are different, but in some of the press conferences from Florida urging people to evacuate the signing looks more like the All Blacks doing the Haka Someone trying to out-do Nelson Mandela's fake interpreter?
