  1. Thank you. I just knew it would be a speed of light is analogous to clock speed thing, A classic stoner insight!
  2. I'd be interested to read the original article, satire or not. Had a quick look but couldn't find it.
  3. Sorry I don't have the equipment for cine film transfers.
  4. Cheers WadsleyBlade, it was a pleasure dealing with you. If anyone else on here needs VHS transfers let me know. I also do Cassettes, Minidisks, photographic negatives, slides...
  5. probably easier and cheaper to buy a used one on eBay.
  6. I have a vhs player hooked up to a DVD recorder, and with another step could make a video file on a stick. If you can supply the vhs c adapter I can do this at about £10 per tape.
  7. What stick blender is it? I'd imagine it would have a proprietary switching mechanism so hard to replace. Desk lamp should be easier, but again what model is it?
  8. I'm sad to hear Len Widdowson has recently died, aged around 100. He compiled several books on Beighton, Woodhouse and Hackenthorpe and did a lot to promote local history. RIP Len
  9. I always got an email a couple of days before my books were due back and have had nothing since lockdown. Sure enough I've got a fine and missing materials on my library account. I will politely but firmly tell them to cancel these fines but I know many old people would be worried about it, my mum wouldn't sleep. My grandmother would worry she was going prison if she paid a bill late. It's a very poor show
  10. Have you considered one of the custom computer building companies, you can choose from different cases or an additional A/V front panel. You also get more for your money.
  11. Ulla! But seriously, if they find fossils or microbes it will change the way we understand ourselves and the universe. If they find the place is sterile and always was it is also important.
  12. Veg and flower seeds now in LIDL, 29p - 49p. Got most of this years seeds for price of 1 packet of big name seed 😀
  13. According to my mum the shop on the left corner of Victoria Rd was 'Greenfield's', she was friendly with their daughter Maisie. The pictures on the Picture Sheffield website are a bit blurry, but if you use the zoom button they are sharper and you can read some of the writing on the shops. My mum lived around the corner 1938-1964 but doesn't remember the name Roe. She does remember the VE Day party on Victoria Rd, it was very raucous with the women dancing with their dresses tucked into their knickers! Mum's parents were strict methodists and didn't attend.
  14. There are several pictures of shops on Victoria Rd on the Picture Sheffield website. Just search 'Victoria Road Woodhouse' Do you know what years the shop operated? My mum lived just round the corner on Sheffield Rd, I'll ask her when I see her.
  15. Still punning on Twitter, not in best of health some years ago.
