Those Notes look cool in the shops, how much you after? I couldn't go back to iPhone now.


Yeah still loving my 4 year old nexus :) maybe time for an upgrade, but it just keeps working. I replaced all the major bits a year or so ago and its in brand new condition.

I'd probably have updated iPhone twice in that period!

Android (or Samsung's version of it at least): Here's 378 different ways of doing what you're trying to do, please pick which is easiest for you.

iOS: Here's the one way to do what you're trying to do and don't worry, it won't change. Ever.

maybe not any more, catalina runs the whole system partition in a read only volume just like iOS, and there seriously blocking 3rd party extensions, its only a matter of time before the two systems are just one,

At work we live on Windows machines. TBH I'm really enjoying using Windows Subsystem For Linux (WSL). I run Ubuntu LTS, it's working very nicely! Can't wait to get the new WSL 2.

I've wanted to scratch build such an amp for a while but individual parts are pretty-much unobtainable so this kit was the next best thing (expensive but excellent quality). It's been in the mail since 20th of August and is currently on the slow boat to Auckland as I couldn't justify the extreme freight cost for anything other than surface mail. I've also got GST to look forward to but I'm still having premature delayed gratification as I wait...

ooo... had my eye on that one too, looks like a great project! Quality kits, + Stephen is a top guy too... enjoy :)

Yep, my very first build was his Tweed Deluxe kit and I totally agree with your comments. They just cost an arm + a leg and the freight from Canada... OMG! Hence surface mail and a 2-3 month wait.
