Thanks very much to Andy (Diabolical Artificer) for the valves and sockets, and his hospitality and his ideas and insight during our chat. What a nice quiet part of the country he lives.

Was also nice to meet Wendy and resolve the transportation request

It has always been a pleasure to meet people of this forum.

Thanks to David (Captain Pugwash) for his generous donation in respect of the Store 4 which thankfully made it (via DPD) in one piece. And thanks to the mods and members generally for supporting charity fund-raising on the forum.

I would very much like to thank Brunell for the Makita cordless drill he so kindly gave me. With a re built battery pack it has many many years ahead of it

I am eternally grateful to ParcGwyn for the contribution of an SC/MP microprocessor chip for my latest project. For the first time in 35 years I have a real SC/MP NBIL computer, I have a test bench for code which up until now has only been tested under emulation conditions. More immediately, I was able to test a solution to a 44 year old problem!

Despite these ICs attracting real money in another place, ParGwyn flatly refused to accept payment. The forum spirit at its best!

Thanks to David (Backtoreality) for giving me a Cossor 501 case are wrapping it so expertly that I think it would have arrived in one piece, even via Beirut. Thanks for all that time and trouble.

A big thanks to Woodchips for the most excellent Tek current probe. It works perfectly (after fixing a loose connection in the power supply to the 134) - see attached, upper trace is cal voltage waveform, lower is current probe waveform, spot on at 30mA!

Many thanks to David, Radio Wangler for the transistors just received. Totally unprompted, he had seen a post of mine expressing interest in a project and sent the transistors to help me out at no cost to myself.
David is a backbone of this forum for many reasons and I am very grateful.
