I'm glad the Forum is back. I felt lost without it. [Wink]

Me too Maurice. I thought we had a repeat of the 2003 server disaster when the whole data base was lost.

I was a lurker before the Great Crash, but joined right after the wreckage was cleared.

How long has it been?

There's this conspicuous gap in my posts during the summer of 2003. I puzzled over what it meant for a while until I realized it's when our son arrived!

-the one that's taking his driving test this August!

-the one that's looking at colleges!

Time is like that: the arrival of the Internet was supposed to be "the Future"... (-Nothing else left to anticipate than aluminum foil clothing, flying cars and vacations on the Moon!)

-but it all becomes ancient history much too quickly!

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

Doesn't the internet show you how fragile everything has become in relying on it. Knock out the internet and see how easy things could be,well you know.
in another post i put up regarding the war games, i mentioned a 1980s docudrama called threads, the title was given to demonstrate that all of modern day communications are connected by a thread and once an energy surge hits,all communications are lost between millions of people.
We in the West rely too much on it all. While the net is a great invention for good things, i believe its a serious weakness to be so reliant on it. Almost every home and business can be cut off in an instant.

5G is the next big thing but if you read in to it, its looking very dangerous, not least to plant and insect life, never mind us.

We are literally all going to be subject to an unprecedented amount of possibly very dangerous waves etc, and for what !!!

I honestly can`t see the benifit considering the risks.

This where we all are, all of the time and everything linked in to everyting thing if you will!!! too.

Pass me the 200 feet super 8 Tom and Jerry`s please.

Best Mark.

It is Tom but at least we have a choice.
Have to be Betty Boop for me Mark.

Doubt anyone will remember 934Mhz CB radio but at the time there was a great deal of concern over microwaving your brain if you had a portable transceiver. We used to climb up a local well mountain with a beam antenna, 30 watt linear amp sending out some power on a Sunday afternoon. After a few years the frequency was snatched from us and re allocated for mobile phones. More money in it I guess?

Here you are, Lee, my favourite Betty Boop which I always use as a test film on 9.5mm sound.
