Thanks to everyone for your very kind birthday wishes and other kind and encouraging comments regarding my contributions to the forum, including my sundry home-brew activities. I've got several homebrew projects and restorations in progress, so when I've something worthwhile to write about, I'll add a thread or two.

I know I'm getting old 'cos my 'kids' are getting old - two married sons aged 55 & 51 - older than some of my chums! I find it surreal to have been retired for 25 years come September, and I long ago morphed into one of those insufferable old buffers with their Saga suntans who used to breeze into the office from time to time to say how 'they didn't know how they ever found time to go to work'.

Even the DWP have sent me a birthday present - my state pension goes up by 25p a week from next week.

Quote of the day:

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.
Anyone who keeps learning stays young.
The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.

Henry Ford.

25p these days, enough for a small computer. Happy birthday, beer and cakes?

Gosh, look at the time - it's 10pm!

I always thought that Octogenarians are supposed to be tucked up in bed by 8pm with Horlicks and a rusk - I've not had my tea yet!

It's not that I forgot - I just haven't had time.

Thanks everyone - night night.

Many happy returns, David, and thanks for your help in the past. Not just the freebies you've been so generous with, but the ongoing (I hope!) pleasure of reading your enlightening views on all matters electronic/mechanical.

Same here David. It's sometimes claimed that 80 rpm might be superior to 78

Happy Birthday David.
Sorry I'm a day late, just spotted all the posts.
Hope you had a great day yesterday, a milestone indeed. I look forward to many more years of your input. I would like to thank you once again for all your help in the past, and especially the probe you so kindly made for me to go with my signal tracer, it has been in use on many occasions and been very reliable and successful.
