You have this problem too. We are in a feedback loop at the moment with a lot of people stocking up. The factory has even ramped up production.People really go nuts here. The next case is still miles away in Uetze (about 50 km) and its a single person right now.
But guess what: Toilet Paper has become a rarity. (Exactly the thing I have forgotten to buy twice now since returning to Wolfsburg)
I have no idea why people need so much toilet paper when they in their pants. Diapers would be a better choice.
PAL and NTSC had the colour information amplitude modulated on the luminance signal.(simplified explanation. It was a suppressed-carrier modulation system, had to be compatible with the monochrome sets in use.)
Secam was clever and frequency modulated the colour signal. I can't remember the advantage of this. 800+ lines was higher resolution of course.
SECAM was technically clever, but I'm told it was a nightmare in any signal processing area. I was also told that some tv channels used PAL in their studios and converted to SECAM at the transmitter. May be apocryphal?
quite an achievement linking all those national broadcasters together live
PAL was 625 lines, NTSC was 525 and SECAM 819? from memory. Field rate was the mains frequency for each nation.
Yes, though I think its run its course!.
Health Minister says the government is working with supermarkets to keep the shelves stocked.
I think I'll go out and do some panic-buying.
