I'm going back to making parts for my 3D printer... with my 3D printer.

It was the successor to the Atom, originally called Proton. More memory, different IO and peripherals etc. Plus The Tube which turned it into the original IO host of the first ARM processor which has basically wiggled its way into the fabric of society now.  And that's what happens when you don't start a race to the bottom like Clive did.

The TF930 has an ARM CPU and is made in UK so there's a little bit of an approving nod towards that as a descendent of such things.
Lots of mobile phones also use the ARM processors

Secret pages!

George, your posts per page setting might be set higher than the default, hence a different page count. Perhaps you set it to 50 per page?

And, welcome to page 500!

Or page 250 in my case.

Probably not C, or maybe it was C++.

Definitely C#. Very generic, mostly made of collected garbage and is currently wedged in my large object heap.

Sounds more like C♭than C♯.

C hash? I'll buy that - or not as the case may be  :)

(IRL I couldn't be bothered to learn C#, based on Hejlsberg's talk to us in ~2001, just as it was being released. Never bothered to learn Delphi either, for the same reason - while it might have been an incrementally better mousetrap, I wanted to catch deer and other larger game :) )

I wanted to catch cash. Which it is very good at.  My intentions in the software sector never were honourable. Get in, take all the money, get out before it goes to shit and retire early from society as a whole and live a modest life of playing with TEA subject matter. So far the plan is working.

Edit: well it would be if eBay perked up a bit.

Also supply is drying up. I did have a theory the other day that you usually get an influx of kit a month or so after a cold snap. Probably all the old hams suddenly going silent key  :-DD

Chilling thought, but might be some truth in it. There is a 6.5 digit Solartron on offer?

Too expensive. Also doesn’t say who calibrated it.
