Re: When will this item be in stock ?

I'd pin this to each and every relevant forum if I were you. This is a properly well constructed response to those who moan about late stuff, out of stock stuff (I have asked Exxos a few times about products, I'm not shying away from that fact). Very well put Chris.

Re: Used a fish finger on a touch screen

Dare I ask how Spam performs. I would try myself - as a dedicated Spam lover, however, the off branded (and vile) stuff has been given to my mate for fishing with. I mean there's some science to be had, salt is an electrolyte and both are full of the stuff. Just please, don't try Salad Fingers. You ...

Re: Joystick cloning

There was no difference to the one you got with the 6 switcher and the ST one, barring plastics. Metal domed switches with a grey "actuator" (used in the loosest terms) and a horrid rubber gator you'd find on a UVJ on a cars' steering for a handle fitted like a sleeve. Terrible. I have a few sticks,...

Re: Falcon PSU making 'tsk-tsk-tsk' sound

Sounds like the over current protection is kicking in (by design, or fault), or the power to the underlying control circuitry is compromised, if it chirps like a bird. Not great. Don't run it again without load. Deffo don't try it in your precious device! I am no expert.

Re: Printer ribbons

I've reinked ribbons in the past. Though generally they don't seem to print much out, and can't put to much ink on them else it gets very messy :( I had a go with parker ink as a kid, can attest to messy, though it was a long stationary Epson cart. I kinda fumbled and had black ink pasta salad all ...

Re: Joystick cloning

Still towing to type, so here's a quick suggestion, take the rubber off of the handle leaving the inner grey hollow pole. If that's still too stiff then new mech design. If it's much easier, consider a remoulding for the outer rubber "handle bit". Never liked the 2600 sticks at all.

Re: Printer ribbons

This are not a full reply, I gone and done me shoulder in, typing is hard. Thanks for the suggestion to actually google the carts, yes I can get them from a place in my county. Interesting convo from a silly thread! Back in a bit... (swears at shoulder while going back to hibernating unless the pain...

Printer ribbons

Hello peeps, I hope you are all doing well. I have a Star LC-10 printer and as you can guess, the ribbon (black, not colour) is probably drier than blue touch paper. I'm considering getting the LC-10 out and making a few signs for the shed, purely because it's an option I have. Is there a decent "re...

Re: Are Bypass Capacitors REALLY needed?

I dunno about you guys but I find myself editing on the fly (L to fast forward 10 seconds on YT) just to get past a lot of spiel that's not needed, or to bypass repetitive stuff. Also the Wadsworth consonant is real. If it's someone I like listening to, say big clive or ave, I'll happily sit and lis...
