Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Just fixed a busted SMA connector on my TBS unity pigtail, it suffered badly in a recent crash and split in two, nothing a touch of the soldering iron couldn't fix  :D

I am not in to the congratulatory scene in that loads of people have babies every day with no fuss and this one is just another ..... we had 2 and there were no photographers with step ladders or banks of TV film crews ...... so why is this one different 

However - this one has the perfect surname for a brilliant christian name ....

He should be christened ';Austin';   ~~



I rest my case  :azn

As a recent victim of ';the resident grammar/latin pedant'; could I just make a small correction?

...why is this one different?

Well that didn';t take long, 15 all?   ~~

By the way, shouldn';t Latin be spelt with a capital ';L';?

I stand corrected - twice  :embarrassed -  my only defence has to be  "He who makes no mistakes never makes anything" ...... I';m not really one for typographical spelling mistakes ... they happen to all of us .....

I was just drawn to the Latin as I was forced to study it for 4 years as a sprog and my bugbear now is misuse and mispronunciation of Latin phrases ..... e.g. (exempli gratia) people will say eKcetera when it';s actually ';et cetera'; and should really be pronounced ';Et Kay-Terra'; .... I know ... I know .... I';m just sad  :embarrassed :embarrassed

I know where you are coming from, in my last job I was the Apostrophe Police but goodness knows how it all started.  I even have a bit of apostrophe abuse that I spotted, photographed and sent to the Apostrophe Abuse Society quoted in Lynne Truss';s book Eats, Shoots and Leaves.  If you';re sad I must be paralytic with grief :embarrassed :embarrassed :embarrassed

The danger of being based at home just waiting for the next job to be phoned through is you get bored and start posting on forums (fori?).

I remember being taught at grammar school that no one really has any clue how Latin should be pronounced anyway. Theories range from pretty much exactly as we / the Vatican use it now (Ecclesiastical Latin) all the way through to a bit like Celtric (who would have been invaded by the Romans who actually spoke Latin, so it';s probable that at least some of it wore off on the Locals).

Fair enough ... but ekcetera still pi$$es me off as there';s no ';K'; only a ';T'; ....

Another that REALLY winds me up - NOT Latin - is Nuclear pronounced as ';NewKiller'; .... everyone can say NEW and CLEAR ... so what is the problem with NEWCLEAR ????  :hmm:
