    Counterfeit Georgian Copper Coins R Coleman

    I didn't know Rob had a large library and sells books either.... ...that's useful info. Are the sales just on this forum, or does he have a website?

    Digital camera question

    ah...I'm trying not to use a laptop or smartphone as a remote, and I'm not bothered about the storage size- I just want the video to 'loop through' the camera into a remote monitor, so I can monitor continuously... Maybe I'll find that the first problem is stopping the camera going to sleep...
  5. I wonder if anyone on here can answer this question.. Have there been cheap digital cameras that have the ability to output video all the time, and have a wired remote input so, for example, with it on a telescope, or facing a bird table, I can check what it's seeing remotely, and take a picture remotely, and without any shake....? I don't want to get an expensive one and expose it to damage- I want to mess about with a cheap secondhand one....
  6. If you really mean no, send them this:

    I love Venn diagrams!!

    About what, exactly?
  8. Rob, if their activities fall short of being lawful, why don't members who have a grievance set up a sting, rather than individually complaining? There must be a way of catching these people out with a planned set of bids.....
  9. Nicely made. For scale, the top of box 12cm square. Maybe a sighting cross staff? The base is just a tapering hole as if it just sits on a pole....
  10. Dr Heisenberg might have been a member of this forum.....

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Remember when you used to look at a pile of ED v11 pennies and could pull out the 1909 ones just by the colour? Were they renowned as a weak strike?

    ...or maybe the annealing process was different, so the metal was harder before being struck, or work hardened differently in the fraction of a millisecond while being struck, thus flowing differently....
  13. This, I've realised, heavily influenced me. The music is where the Human League were when they started.....amazing for it's era....
