Reverse or Welsh?

 

It's a little known fact that all Oasis lyrics are merely popular Welsh phrases in reverse.

I can prove you wrong there, because the Gallaghers are more literate than one might assume.  Reversing the lyric correctly it is, "llawrednow my er'uoy".

I know but IIRC correctly carter is dyslexic and I therefore felt it inappropriate to make that observation.

RE: Cable flow direction

If you want to follow the writing or the arrows on the cables, then do so. If you don't, then don't!!

It's like it has become fashionable to slate cables manufacturers. Not on.

Why not?

 

With the exception of some screened cables which need to be connected at one end it doesn't matter which way round a cable goes. If a cable manufacturer tells you otherwise then they're lying and dererve to be exposed for the charlatans that they are.

I guess more expensive cables don't make a difference either?

Spell checkers are so inconvenient. Every time I type the word 'foo' (which is quite often :shifty: ) I have to go back and correct it because it's been changed to 'too'.

I'm going to refrain from answering that one because it'll start another silly cable debate which would be of no use to the OP. Smile

It's worth reading. Belden are a serious company making products for most market sectors around the world.

There is a good chance that they made a lot of the 'boutique' hi-fi cables that are terminated with fancy looking plugs, packaged and re-sold in hi-fi shops for some of the 'usual suspects' we think of as cable manufacturers.

Their approach is sensible and pragmatic. 

To paraphrase ...

"Customer wants their cable insulation printed to indicate best audible 'directionality'. So we give them samples and let them choose the 'best' direction and then produce it as per contract, even though we've proven to our own satisfaction that it's b######s with our own double blind tests."

 

 

"We are currently awaiting the loading of our complement of small lemon-soaked paper napkins for your comfort, refreshment and hygiene during the journey."
