Video Tips

2001-01-28 Thread Dave Cross


Here's a top tip. Don't try to video two hours of programs on an hour and a 
half of video tape.

Does anyone happen to have Friday's Angel taped - I only really need the 
second half :(

can't you just turn the tape over instead then[1]

[1]philips 2000 format, years ahead of its time, turn the tapes over like
an audio cassette, 8 hours per tape, perfect picture in still frame
(due to video head mounted on a piezo slab)  earlies 80's tecnology!..

   FWIW, I know my mother has booked some largish meetings outside of
   London.  Of course, I don't remember offhand how large, or, for that
   matter, what kind of numbers you're looking at.
  
  Go to Brighton. It's nicer than London, on the sea, easy to get to from
  Gatwick, and has more pubs per head of population than any other town in
  Britain (I think, or maybe it was more pubs per square mile). It has
  conference facilities for all sizes (although I've no idea how booked up
  they get). And it's 55 minutes from London by train.
  
 
 And its handy for me.

And me!
