If you can FIND the uplink code you will never need to wind your clock......

My family has a FINE (roughly 100 year old) clock which uses a key to wind the mainspring and announcement chime spring. I hope David tells us more about uplink codes - is he alluding to GPS satellite uplink control codes?

That is what I was alluding to..... but my post was a bit of a rigmarole (methinks) - possibly I had drank too much WINE.

We must draw the LINE on excessive drinking while posting!

But it's OK to have a glass while you DINE.

Drinking (while sitting on a sand dune) is a BONE of contention for some....

I would equate it equally with watching reruns of the LONE Ranger.

As a kid I would LOVE watching the reruns in the late 50's and the early 60's. Portions of Rossini's William Tell Overture really added to the excitement!

Agreed, It is a story WOVE with skill, in the spirit of true entertainment. I first watched it at the Saturday afternoon matinee, at the picture house in the UK; it would have been around 1950 I guess. Having just watched it through again, I was not disappointed.

Some merchants sell goods with dishonest weights; they have a problem with WARE and tare.
