    LED streetlights are coming to Portsmouth

    I've heard several reports in the media recently of LED street lights being a cause of migraines. Any truth in that?

    Mars you teasing Jezebel

    I'd best not comment. It would stray too far into gender politics for this site.

    Mars you teasing Jezebel

    Mars is male ain't he? Just saying like. Ironic though isn't it! We usually spend all our time cloud dodging this end and now it's clear, and Mars is at its best, we're waiting for clouds to clear at the other end.

    South West Astro Fair 2018

    Thanks for the notice. It just so happens I might well be in Cornwall at that time so may go along. I'd never heard of the place or the astro fair until now. How is that possible?
  5. That's very nice. I haven't managed to see any noctiluscent clouds so far this year.

    Is there such a thing as a reliable USB hub?

    @Dr_Ju_ju They seem to be eluding me. Perhaps it's the heat.

    Do you recall where you bought screw lock USB cables from? (If that's what they're called.) I'm having a devil of a job finding a supplier. Doesn't seem much point buying the hub if the cables aren't available.

    @AngryDonkey Ah, yes. See what you mean. Five hundred quid.

    @AngryDonkey That looks neat! Don't know whether it would work for me as I set up and tear down each time.

    I'll give that another try. I've had mixed results trying this in the past.

    How do people recover from a loss of connection over USB? I usually find I have to disconnect everything, turn off and restart the laptop and then reconnect each USB device in sequence. It's s real pain.

    I will give them a try.

    Is there such a thing as a reliable USB hub?

    Do you use screw lock USB cables into that? I imagine using those might help in maintaining a stable connection.
  14. The dilithium batteries canna take it, Captain.
  15. Yeah. I think somewhere called Death Valley would put me off. Something in the name maybe? . At least in Britain it's pretty safe at night in a totally rural location. The worst that's likely to happen is you get mauled by a sheep! Here I'd have more concerns about observing in a public place in an urban location.
