1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I have one of the inexpensive electronic balances and a Shure SFG-2, which I bought in the 70s, and they give consistent results.

    The cheapest one - I'd bet that there are only one or two Chinese factories making them, only the colour and the badge on them changes.

    Change that first 'i' to an 'e' and then it is an English word that refers to the condition of being parallel.

    The Scottish translation would be 'hurkle-durkle', as in, Set your tonearm to hurkle-durkle on the plinth.

    Thanks. Now I understand. It’s like paralytic! Something else the Scots understand, being horizontal.
