Re: How do I add an attachment

Hi Dacflyer. Hope you are dry by now.

Photobucket decided to block access from third parties a couple of years ago; and I closed my account. Have they resumed access as originally ? Can you please attach here an image from your Photobucket the way you describe ?

Re: T & L Publications Forum Revamp!

Thank you for your good intentions.

On your opening for suggestions, I would ask for periodical presence of the personnel in charge of this forum site, or a working way to report anomalies.

Previous forums you were in...

Nothing of importance, just to help remember the history of defunct forums...
I remember Microsoft groups, Popular electronics, Electronics Now as forums some of us frequented (or resided in) since middle 90's.
Can you refresh the sequence or others since the early times ?

Re: TV lacking remote control...

Yes, I did cycle power as first action, did not mention that.
Today, did not respond to remote again. Turned on with panel button, and after a while, obeyed the remote. Intermittent something. Perhaps I will end beating Murphy this time as cannot probe any circuit in it.

Hi. Today, my TV refused to turn on with the remote. Checked/replaced its AAAs; nothing. Confirmed operation with button controls. Works.

Hi Al. How much erosion brass, bronze tips show compared to copper ? With an iron nail, erosion should be minimal, stiffness great, But of course slow heat conductivity that calls for fatter and shorter tips to approach a reasonable performance in certain uses. Remember trying a gold clad tip when l...
