  1. Another enquiry gives a bit of hope... "this line has been discontinued for the time being"

      For some reason, I'd prefer not to comment about that.

      One of Steve Wright’s characters (Reg?), years’ ago:

       

      Reg: “She’s brilliant, isn’t she? She sings, she dances, she plays football!”

      SW: “Who’re you talking about Reg?”

      Reg: “That Maradonna woman”

      Yes ... Steve Wright ... His early afternoon show was the only thing on Radio 1 I ever actually enjoyed listening to.

       

      I couldn't stick most of the music. (This would surprise nobody who knows me - as I've been into classical music for as long as I can remember.)

       

      The "characters" and the satire were a different matter - some of these were hilarious.

       

       

      Returning to Madonna, I don't think many people would disagree about him having been one of the most talented soccer players of all time. However, he really shouldn't have resorted to that hand ball foul - he didn't need to - and it cemented a reputation as a cheat.

       

      The drugs stuff wasn't good either - which is why I found it interesting to learn that he also advertised Coke.

       

      Yes, I know. We can all be certain that this would definitely have been "the real thing" ... .

       

      When doing an obituary feature about him yesterday on one of the news channels, someone drew attention to this - and the "things go better with Coke" advertising slogan.

       

      Well, just as long as the slogan refers to Coke Classic - I'm not too keen on the other sort.

       

       

      No. I'm afraid I just regard the news about Maradonna as tragic. I don't like to think of anyone dying - especially dying young.

       

      However, the other tragedy is what he could potentially have been (and achieved), if only he'd avoided the drugs, like the plague they are.

       

      As I see it, I'm afraid that was the real tragedy with Diego Maradonna.

  3. It's not that I am after buying any from elsewhere, it's that I was noticing they were becoming scarce and I had seen nothing to say they were being discontinued. I have a small stock (9) of them left but I thought they would be something that would have always been available. For under £10 in the local hobby shop they were a good buy.
  4. Just had a message back from Dapol, they have been discontinued. Odd, they must have been a good seller as I can't find anywhere with stocks of them.
  5. Are Dapol still making these kits? Hattons used to stock loads of them, can't see any now.

  7. I was wondering what a Brummell was.
  8. And I can't imagine a plumber would use 0.5mm 60/40 solder to sweat a joint in a water pipe.
  9. Neutrik Speakons are another useful connector. They are lockable, contacts shrouded preventing shorts, high current rating and the plugs have screw terminals.
  10. From what I remember the insulfrog single slip can work by having both tiebars thrown together but the electrofrog single slip needs to be wired and operated like a double slip for the frog polarities to be correct.
