I think it’s largely immaterial what remaining activity the tritium retains if the phosphor has already degraded.

Re: Tritrium refresh for C600 TriTech Elites

While the half-life of tritium is 12 years (it's radioactive activity decreases to half the original), the effect is inverse-exponential so in another 12 years it'll be down to 25% and so on. That in itself would make a tritium tube last dimly for many years, however it's likely the phosphor in the ...

Re: Anybody ever downgrade their phone?

I think the concern I'd have is around how long older versions of hardware and operating systems are supported by the manufacturer- especially security updates. We've all heard how Apple were under scrutiny for knobbling older phones as new operating systems were released, but they're also on the ho...

Re: C65 Dune Preview

Dang it! I left work two hours early to be in good time to tune in at 5pm to find out it was actually aired at 4pm and done and dusted- I had mis-read the original invitation. I am so so sorry if I had blocked anyone else wanting to see the preview. My penance is that I now have to wait with the hoi...

Re: Loupe Magazine

Not wishing to go off topic, but I wonder if an adjacent decision point is whether a curated magazine- online or physical- is still needed. Where some companies seem to do quite well with 'blog' style editorials, I wonder if the magazine collection of stories is still the easiest (and most cost effe...
