@exxos there was lots of cool high voltage stuff, but being mechanical discipline I did not understand just appreciated.

An area I found very interesting was the whole 'microchip irradiation' work that has been ramping up to investigate logic switching due to cosmic radiation.
If your interested Google 'ChipIR ISIS' or Section 2.4 in the following PDF has a little more info:

Buying stuff from aliexpress seems to have changed again. My purchases of late have paid fees upfront. It was really useful and made things cheaper quicker etc. But now it seems to have stopped and I am now again getting royal mail fees :(

So this is creating more work and costing me £8 more than before :roll:

I still don't understand all this import tax stuff since it all changed. I will have to pay closer attention to all this in the future again now.

It was part of the video software update I used Filmora 13. It actually makes some pretty good music!

Its got AI images as well, those things still a bit odd though :lol:

I said draw an image of a retro legend working on retro hardware :lol:

I spotted this broken cap which JLC assembled. Obviously not very good quality control on their part :roll:
