couldn't agree more with rest , but this is what's more important

I have a good friend whom I'm calling something as "Important wires Putter" ; according to him - that's safe and simple procedure ;

just check prior that they didn't put 100MHz clock , by mistake



all the best , sport

If you got out with your own legs by, it's good news.
Choose a clock, which is ticking nicely.
Please accept my sincerest best wishes!

Many thanks for the good wishes;

.....I go out of synch about 2-3 times a year. The possible danger is a stroke, so I am on pretty strong preventive medicine: mainly rat-killer - which made me feel dreadful; but now they have cut off my tail it is OK!

@ c2c....that lamp looks awful well rubbed to me....did it work for you??

Sorry to hear about that you might need a "super clock" to get things put right. SWMBO had one put in around three years ago - combined with a "Maze" procedure to quiet down her a-fib. All went quite well - except for the part where one of the leads became disconnected after a couple of months and had to be reconnected. I suggest that you consider the wiring upgrade to cryo treated silver wires with the gold interconnects.

The magic lamp iz not mine - it belongs to a friend of mine that I shall refer to az "Steeler Fan" (hiz fav American Football team iz the Pittsburgh Steelers") and the TD 160 belongs to him az well - his 1st adventure into TT's. IF I can get around to doing a DIY TT this year then I might entertain the idea of helping him make a better arm for his - but that iz a slippery slope to tread upon. Months ago I showed him how to replace the belts in hiz Marantz cd11mk2 and he still hasn't gotten around to doing it. Things like that get me into thinking about when "helping a friend" starts to become "working for free".... and that's another slippery slope. It all has a lot to do with how much spare time I have and what he is willing to do and to learn.

Too much dither again, ay ?

Couple of weeks ago I zapped myself with an induction milk frother, touched both plug pins with wet fingers, forgot that these things are still heavily charged with +320V after unplugging.
The not so poor man's cheapo heart test. (had solid erect nipples for 2 hours, yummy, as long as I didn't touch them)

Quite a lot of that around when you reach 70.

The milk is meant to be in a jug....not still in the glands! . But I am sure that the magnetic nipple spikes were to blame. The things that happen in the privacy of one's own home!
