Yes, line three has the lowest upstream sync rate. Downstream is very good however. That seems to be part of it. But all was ok a few weeks ago, when line three had a much lower sync rate. Now the line 3 upstream SNRM has been lowered with the effect that the sync rate of line 3 is much closer to the others.

In the stats-fest thread earlier, there is a complete set of stats and when that was taken there was no problem. Since then I have lost 250kbps (of TCP-payload throughput? - who knows) from the combined effective upstream speed reported by speedtest2.aa.net.uk which was 1.5Mbps before.

Right now line 3 is set at tx rate (IP PDUs) of 333520 bps, which is hopefully 90% of 0.884434 * 419kbps sync rate. The other modems have sync rates of 499 kbps or more.

Before the egress rate was much lower, at 90% of a low upstream sync rate because the upstream SNRM was way above 9dB.

Exactly. I’m sure Tom wouldn’t object. I’m just hoping someone clumsily misspoke and meant ‘customer’ rather than ‘patient’.

My focus was on the loss of knowledge of the most personal and practical kind, of minutiae. Thousands of human languages are being lost and they will never have been adequately captured.

I’m pleased to hear about the much-loved LP12. I had an SME Mk III arm on my Thorens TD160S turntable, which lived on two concrete blocks on a three-inch thick wall shelf bolted to three brick walls - on the long side and on the ends, between a chimney breast and side wall. The shelf was strong enough for me to lie on it. Built by my father after an earlier crappy turntable sitting on a wooden blanket box aka microphone plus resonator destroyed my first pair of speakers’ crossovers with bass acoustic feedback. Bless him, father understood the task, and them some, went totally over the top and built the Humber Bridge, but certainly achieved the desideratum.

line 3 has the lowest sync rate?

A non-event then. No noticeable change. ;D

Vinyl: How many on here have collections of old LPs? We were surprised recently by a chat on Bargain Hunt with someone dealing in old records and how some of the more obscure bands can be worth something. One example he gave was Gentle Giant, Acquiring The Taste which we have a copy of the original vinyl LP.
I have quite a few LPs (100+) dating back from the 1960s. I have phases of interest when I select a few and play them on my 1974 Linn Sondek LP12 deck and SME tone arm which is still going strong albeit has had a new digital motor and updated Ortofon cartridge. I still have the original Shure V15 though. I’ve bought a few new releases on vinyl recently and also a few “vintage” pressings. Trouble with LPs is the constant toing and froing to change sides!

I still have all my LPs.  Most have been supplemented by corresponding CDs that are ripped to my media server for the undeniable convenience, but I still play Vinyl once in a blue moon.  Often, the reason I do so is to convince sceptics that Vinyl really does sound nicer.  I connect a stand-alone CD player to the same analogue Amp as the turntable so I can get both CD and Vinyl copies of the same recording playing in unison, then switch between them for direct comparison.   As often as not, the sceptics are convinced.  :)

I'm not so sure about the more modern habit, of USB-connected turntables.   Surely that just creates the worst of both worlds - you get the clicks and pops inherent to vinyl, as well as the ever-so-slightly inferior sound quality inherent to digital?

I can see why (if patient confidentiality rules apply) they wouldn't let you see his records - but under the same rules did they show them to Tom himself and answer any questions he had?

I have a different take on this.  I don’t think anything will be, or even can be, forgotten any more, owing to digital storage.   And storage capability seems to be expanding faster than knowledge, if that makes sense?

I’m not sure that’s a good thing.   My worry is there might come a time where future generations are unable to understand the concept of the word “forgotten” in its current form.   Effectively “recorded history” might be restarted.    Things that missed the boat of digital storage, such as Apollo and other big historical events, good and bad, might come to be treated as if they had simply never happened.
