Seems like Maplin are in trouble.
|Thread: What does 'gauge' mean?|
There's an interesting page on Metrication in the United States in Wikipedia.
|Thread: Super Customer Service|
Yes they're a very good company. Before retirement I worked at a school and we used them a great deal - never had a problem.
|Thread: Attachment value|
No, not really, phishing is "The fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers".
|Thread: Scam or too good to be True|
Strange. Postage only £5?
|Thread: Evading VAT and Import Duty|
Having been stung a couple of times I now won't buy or sell anything of more than very minor value outside the EU and I don't use eBay's dreadful Global Shipping Program. Don't find I'm losing out much - if at all.

|Thread: Why Column gear shift|
Back in the early '60s I had several Fords with column change and 3 seater bench seat- Zodiac, Zephyr, Consul. Slid around on every bend!

|Thread: Has anyone regretted migrating from MS Winows to Linux?|
Installing Ubuntu is as complex as sticking in a DVD and checking a few questions.
I haven't used MS Windows for many years. I use Ubuntu and have not had any problems at all.
|Thread: Omega watch|
I don't wear a watch at all. I've no need for one since I retired and I can guess the time to the next meal fairly accurately.
|Thread: Basted apps|
If you really don't want to disclose who/where you are do a web search for accommodation address
|Thread: What's this for?|
There's no mention of it in the 1958 B&H catalogue.
|Thread: How could I make this curved conrod?|
I've made several of these over the years and have always used a method similar to that laid out above by Phil H1.
Quickest and simplest way.
|Thread: BA Spanners|
I remember their catalogue which needed several large volumes and that we received several editions each year. There always seemed to be piles of the things.
Many schools use RS, or at least those I've worked in do.
|Thread: T Nuts: What if any treatment?|
Made a handful by milling two corners of a strip of mild steel then chopped it into short lengths and drilled and tapped them.

|Thread: Cheap software|
"Take a retired person on a basic OAP which I think is about 580 pounds for round figures per month divide that by 4 to get a weekly income and we get 145 pounds
Now divide that by 38,the hours in a working week and we finish up with 3.82 pounds per hour you are being paid
So next time you spend 3 hours pissing about with a 50p article it has actually cost you 11.45 pounds"
But it doesn't work like that. I get my pension whatever I do or don't do. Whether I surf the net, read this forum or I'm in my workshop making swarf it has no affect on my income.
So how much did it cost you to write that?
Indeed but I no longer have working days.
This what Cnet said at the time...
"Adobe has not officially released the CS2 software for free. Instead, it has cancelled its CS2 license management servers because of a technical glitch, so for those with existing licenses it is now offering downloads that do not require contact with the licensing servers. While Adobe admits this may be seen as it giving its software away for free, this service is intended for those with existing Adobe CS2 licenses."
