LMAO

The good ppl of the Cambridge Constabulary might get around to you in 20 years or so when they have finished deciding what to do about the itinerent influx. You might be in for a flogging with a wet lettuce leaf one of them dropped.

Hilarious.

Tee hee.

Mrs tac was just recently carrying out an errand of mercy in our little village¬*when she saw what appeared to be a police officer walking down the High Street.¬* Staggered by this unusual apparition, as common here in Cambridgeshire as a unicorn, she sought a place to sit and recover in the nearby bus shelter, and called me up as soon as she recovered sufficiently to get her breath back.

I was initially in two minds whether or not to call the local police station, and report the probability of this sighting actually being an imposter rather than a real police person, when I recalled that we had recently had 90m of 1000-pair telephone cable¬*stolen by our itinerant brethren, and that communication via land-line was not possible.

Still, it goes to show that nowhere these days is safe from the presence of a sneaky police person, even fifteen years after the last resident police person left our village.¬* Our daughter, now aged 27, does not remember ever seeing a police officer actually walking around in the village, even having lived there for 23 years...

Meanwhile there have beeen a number of suspicious sightings of 'police cars' with up to four 'police officers' in them sighted around the scene of the crime, as well as up and down the busy A1 and A1[M] near to our house...but then, who do you report these sighting to?

For Hagen

I guess having a society of less than 2000 people worldwide justifies the expense of credit card processing, internet online membership paying etc. Apparently in the UK there are all kinds of rules about how funds are handled and the privacy of personal information that don't apply [certainly in the USA] in other countries. This makes it very difficult for them to use any "automated" method for dues payment by other than "standing bank draft", a process between you [as a member] and your bank. G1MRA doesn't get involved in the process except to be notified that the money in their account came from your account.
Oh, on the contrary, they will only deal in cheques and cheques only. "A bit more modern" was actually hinting at the thing called "bank transfer", as that is absolutely doable within Europe, and at a fair price too. I did ask "the guys" at G1MRA about doing such a transaction, but there was no way this could possibly be done... I would believe that an organization such as the G1MRA would have a bank account for the "club"?
Even Paypal would hardly cost them anything...

So I will get back to joining once they discover this 'modern' way of transporting money across distances.

As for online content being 'free for the taking' I do believe Tag Gorton of Garden rail have gotten a different opinion after he started up. I, and I am certain many others, jumped at the chance of subscribing to an online edition of Garden rail.
I also buy Pecos yearly CDs, that contain their magazines from the previous year, lot's of good drawings in Continental and Railway modeller. People don't expect everything on the internet to be free,
There are many benefits of an electronic subscription:
  1. I don't have to cram my closets full of old editions in the case I might actually need the information in one of them, they are stored either on a server or on a local harddrive (or two).
  2. I can print what I want, and to the scale I want, when I need it.
  3. I never lose an issue in the mail
  4. I get the issue first/on release day
  5. Payment options are usually better (than cheques)
I do not however make heavy use of DRM protected downloads, as I can't usually use it on all of my equipment, this goes for music and movies that I would like to play on my media centre computer, some movies will not play fullscreen due to DRM, some will stop after the menu and some woun't play at all. Even if you are sitting with the original cover in hand and the original media in the player...

Also, do not make the assumption that the crippling US copyright laws apply all over the world. The actual law in Norway clearly say that you can make backup copies for yourself, and copies for family and friends, and there is not even a definition in the law of what a 'friend' is.
I usually do not take advantage of this, as I like to have an original. And like I said to Tac/G1MRA if I could pay for the mag and BUY it I would.

OK, Guys.¬* The offer is now closed.
¬*
To my astonishment, no less than¬*6,933,824¬*people demanded copies of this extremely useful article, and as I was charging $25 a photo-copy, I made a pretty good deal of money on it.

To all of you who asked for but have not yet received your gold-embossed, hand-signed copies of this excellent article, please be patient, the personal courier might be having problems finding a limousine to escort the missive to you, depending where you live.

tac



The truth is that six of my Gauge 1 associates asked for, and got, a freebie copy of this excellent article by a master at work.

No money changed paws in any direction, only friendship and goodwill.

Wouldn't it be just great if it could always be like that?

Best wishes to most.

To those that found this article usefull I will recommend this book
Locomotive and rolling-stock construction
There is also one article in issue 187 of the G1MRA newsletter that describes making coaches using plywood instead of brass, also a good read (and yes, I bought that issue when I had the chance some months back)
