I'm at work offshore trying to fix a bloody computer and the tghought occured to me of that twat in the RN recruiting ad who is on about sometimes he just switches the server off and on. this led me to this stae of wodermont. Do they teach valve theory any more? When I went to Collingwood in '66 it was Basic Electronics I and II. Then on to valve theory. Yes I know. It shows my age. Is it straight in to the ones and zero's now? Don't know if this question is breaking any rules and regs about security. Just idle curiosity and being pig sick of these poxy PC's, server and switches. There aint no fun in fixing them like I used to have with 640 Tx's and B40 Rx's.
