    Tin whiskers will grow through conformal coatings.

    It seems you misunderstood me. I use disposable tissues in place of 'hankies'.

    The idea of a piece of cloth that one uses many times to collect ever more germs
    is plain disgusting. The idea of offering it to someone else begs belief.

    Sorry, I wasn't concentrating and I thought you were still talking about the
    bureaucrats, I thought that would be a very effective solution.
    Oh.. well can we still do the bureaucrats afterwards? ??

    Oh boy, where do you start on that one ? Apart from the fact that it's been
    probably 10 years since I last saw it, I seem to recall the whole story
    being a really surreal thing full of 'hidden meanings' and 'symbolism' (or
    maybe not ?? ) about what Number 1 was and what it all meant and how it
    related to society. There was loads of debate and interpretation stuff at
    the time as I remember. I have this hazy memory of some kind of court
    proceedings going on and him somehow coming face to face with himself. The
    whole concept of what we thought it was about, was turned on its head I
    think ( a bit like Lost ). The next thing I remember is him being in a taxi
    and being back in London driving over a bridge somewhere near Westminster -
    or maybe that's from another episode. Actually, there must be loads on the
    web about this, rather than trusting my memory. Hang on a minute whilst I go
    and look ....

    ..... OK. Try this for size. Seems to be as good a synopsis and analysis as
    any

    Seconded on that, and a point that I've been making since the start in the
    various scribblings I've done for the trade rags etc.

    Surely it's better to keep your own germs to yourself on your own hanky in
    your own pocket, until such time as you commit it to the washing machine,
    where the nasty little buggers will be purged? You can't reinfect yourself
    when you have a cold or whatever, it just runs its course.IMHO, it's dumping
    your germs into the public domain where they can infect others, by way of a
    'disposable' tissue, that ranks as disgusting ... :-\

    Depends on the standards in use where they work. PAL where you live, SECAM
    in others, and NTSC is still others.
    Spot on. There has always been smaller stations (also poorer economically
    andd then technically).

  10. You're the idiot.

    You are so goddamned stupid that you don't even know how to watch a
    fictional story.
     

  11. As if I need to measure up to your retarded assessments, much less that
    of some other peanut gallery twit.
     
  12. The first series of 10k rpm drives from them had serious thermal issues,
    and if you were a "cram it in and go" idiot (I have no doubt you were),
    and did not know what installation considerations were needed, it was
    surely destined to fail.

    The newer 10k rpm designs are far more forgiving of idiots like you.
     

  13. Frame captures, and small clips are part of what IS legal.
     
  14. Yet you sign as "rabbitsfriendsandrelation", you retarded ****.
     

  15. That is why I said transformer varnish, and said vacuum impregnated,
    not some lame, SOFT conformal coat, WHICH GETS SPRAYED ON.

    The varnish is a much tougher, harder media. The whisker growth is
    slowed by the lack of elements which promote it in bare PCB environs.

    If it hasn't been tried yet, I would state that it would likely work,
    and yes, I was ALREADY aware that Tin still has problems with standard
    coatings.
     

  16. The silver paint damn near killed Buddy Ebsen.
     

  17. If you go digging in a waste bin, you deserve a disease.

    I don't dispose of them in public.

    Having a fresh tissue to hand has proven to be handy many many times, not least
    since you *can* offer one to someone else.

    Do, do tell what a "cram it in and go" idiot is.

    FYI we installed them in external enclosures similar to the ones that came from
    Avid.
