Here I am in my "happy" suit

Some fairly serious kit there. Is that why you moved to Gozo?

Santa looks as if he was press-ganged into this shot. What did you do to the poor man?


I think he was just pissed off with all the kids that have sat on his lap all day :twisted:

You know I wondered about that. I had to look the words up on Ask Jeeves and that's the first one that came up. I guess I wouldn't pass as a researcher. I'll change that right away, Ma'am. 8)

I can visualise the early work with valves - but EL34s were neat, civilsed things. I bought my first amp in a junk shop: it had a pair of glowing brutes (807's ?) to drive the speakers. Later, we built one with KT66's. And my university buddy - who improved my amp for me - also played the trick with the hidden insulation on me, during a lab session. In th end, he had to show me what he'd done, so that I could complete my Wheatstone Bridge experiment...

By the way, if any of you want to post pics of yourselves and can't work out how to do it, then e-mail the pic to me (using the e-mail button below) and I'll host it on my site and send you the link to use.

OK. As an independent witness, I'll vouch for the pic being a recognisable likeness of Squiffy. But what's the white border - reserved for future expansion?

Hang about a bit, and I'll get a pic of a bearded Ruggie/chabrenas. Started off as a full beard when they cut my house water supply off, but it itched too much. Now it looks like a lightweight, grey Abe Lincoln or one of the original Afrikaner colonists - no hair near the mouth. I could almost live with it - but wifey will have something to say about the matter.

Actually I don't look like that anymore :O)

I have lost 18lbs on my special MS diet, and I have now just got a Goatee - Teensquiffs wants me to dye it purple or blue a la Billy Connolly :O)

Go to Photobucket

http://photobucket.com/

that seems to work quite well.

You will have to register - its free - and then where it says Add Picture - click on browse and look around on your hard drive for where you have put the photograph that you want to put onto the Internet. Then click on Submit.

After the photo appears down the bottom of the page, I would suggest you go to Edit - if the photo is big - for instance 60k - you will have to click on 50% or 25% to make it small enough - I think Dr. Dave said 25k. Once you have resized the photo then you right click on the box that says IMG underneath your photo and then paste the code between the image tags above. You have to click on the Img box before and after the photo code so it comes out sort of like:

with your code in between.

Its one of those things that is easy once you know how.

If you can't figure it out - pm me and I will give you my email address and I will post it for you.

Here is Graeme's photo.

Image

He looks about like I thought he would.

I don't know why - I often initially think of people as being younger than they really are. Then when I read their posts, I get a better idea. But my first reaction is always to think they are in their 20s or something!!

Must be getting old!!

Liz, thanks for posting Graeme's photo. I was way off on that one too. I'd imagined Graeme as being much more mature (older :twisted: ) and not nearly so good looking. But he certainly has good taste in clothes: nice t-shirt!. :lol:
