Re: Why do prints have to be mounted?

My response to the same question which you posted on the club's Facebook page. I acknowledge that you stated there that you intended to place this enquiry in both places. "Print paper is floppy and requires some form of stiffening for ease of handling and display. "While officially judges ...

Re: Wex Open Day - 11 October 2019

Maybe Iggy is referring to one of the other events on different days, which require tickets (and payment) to attend, and thus need to be booked via a button in the top right. I imagine that is the case. Not all the Wex events require payment; some are free. There is one such on 19 September in Lond...

Chargeable Firmware Update

A feature of some manufacturers is that as soon as they launch a new product, they have zero interest in purchasers who bought the previous one. Cynically perhaps, they reason that there is little to be gained in improving older devices. It costs money for which there will be little financial return...
