    Poor cat ��. No sprout quiche for me then. Drinking coke makes me feel a little bilious. So together I can understand.

    Garlic snails for starters then garlic lovers beef and garlic mash with the odd beer did it for me.

    The way my digestive system behaves, if I became a vegetarian it would likely increase global warming!

    I have one or two contacts on my SIM that I might quite enjoy rubbing, but mostly not.
    We give £350m a week to the EU. Let's give it to Dido Harding instead.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    Well, not once you've got them out on the workbench, no.

    Of course not, for that you need a lightning conductor and an Igor.
    Even then, turning them off and back on again renders the person part unviable. You end up with a revenging monster instead. It's a bit like getting ransomware into your drive.

    When I was a test & commissioning technician one of the systems we had to test used computer cards that where designed as TTL but in production CMOS; If we found any faults with that part of the system the usual practise was to initially pull out then if still faulty swop out. Faults would rarely clear, what we found after the manufacturer returned the card 'fault not found' was to pull the cards out and leave in a conductive bag for 24 hours to discharge the smoothing capacitors completely. Reduced the fault count by 99.9%!

    Is that rubbing out or rubbing up against?
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    Those pesky capacitors. We worked with A/C drives and if they were older than 18 months old and not been used, we needed to reform the electrolytic capacitors. Went to one machine that needed all day to do this. Mostly when powering down we left them off long enough for a cup of tea. Luckily most didn’t require 24 hours. Capacitors do age and dry out though causing strange problems when they are old.

    TTL takes me back a long time to when I was an apprentice. One machine tool had boards with logic gates made from discreet components (transistors etc). Never seen it since.
