    Of course ther was. The softer girls drank Woodpecker. Natch was the
    base minimum for the rest of us, and farm scrumpy if we could get it (it
    usually meant we couldn't get it later though).
    Deepest apologies. Double Diamond, anyone?

  2. You mean that there was "expensive " cider?

    please dont mention Party 7's, this is supposed to be a civilised NG


    Serious error.
    All shortcuts have disappeared.
    Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
  3. I didnt realise that you could get cider in bottles

    Wasnt DD a poor excuse for Guiness. But I do remember one Xmas party
    when I brewed 25gallons of good english beer, but that was before I
    put new carpets down mainly to cover up the oil stains left after
    rebuilding a Ducati 750S in my back room. a wonderful machine

    That house never really recovered

    Sort of On Topic
    Anyone suggest a DSP kit that takes 24bit/192K audio in. I just need
    to do L+R to M+S in real time. Its a one off project so I dont want a
    steep lurning curve

    Hmm. Slept through the campaign, did we? ;-)

    It seems that the 0402 is too small for printing any numbers for
    And i have yet to see chip caps that have any markings.
    However, 0805 and larger chip resistors have decent markings: 2002 =
    200*10^2 ohms 1%, 1R00 = 1 ohm 1%, 1654 = 165*10^4 ohms or 1.65 megs 1%,
    etc; if only 3 digits then it is 5%.
    In all cases the multiplier is the last digit.

    about half of my 0603 R's are so marked. about half have cryptic drivel.

    The cap thing is a nuisance, but at least different dielectrics are
    (usually) different colours.

  7. You can do a similar DVM jig for leaded resistors by
    soldering a couple of paper clips to 4mm terminal pins.

    The way I see it, it doesn't make any sense for a manufacturer of little
    teeny tiny components that come on a tape and get stuffed by machine, to
    spend money painting markings on them that will never get looked at in
    99.999% of the cases.

  9. What is the failure rate of the assemblies made under your "no-look" quality
    assurance plan?

    Damfino. Is your cell phone working? ;-)
