Hey,

My fine dish is proving enjoyable, tele-visual wise. Although I would love to be able to achieve high internet speeds, I cannot for now. So Is it possible to send anything back, to anyone/thing, via a satellite system?

What other electrically related gizmos and gadgetry can you plug a dish into and for what reason would you want to?

to transmit via satellite you need (a) a licence and (:cool: a transmitting LNB (significantly larger and more expensice than the one you've got now...). If you sign up for a 2-way satellite internet connection, you are obviously covered re. licence but you still need to pay for the LNB and also a converter box to relay the internet traffic.

Re. other uses, it makes a very good party wok or a very poor frisbee. If you melt it down it could theoretically be recast as a scale model of my dog. If you've got the fibre-glass variety you could probably row it to Ireland.

Not to forget an Olympic size electrically heated bird bath for the winter months, solid dishes only may apply.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

A visual location device of the town, as a friend of mine once realised after he was trying to find his town when circling to land at Heathrow

Ive painted the panels since

If you like barbies.... you could stick a flame under it and knock up a stir-fry. Bit difficult if it's on the roof though.

Whhhaaayy,

TV then...cool. The answer i was looking for was. To start with (once born), a 1cm dish cut into the ear lobe, (picks up radio 1), when I'm ten a sky dish, simply because I've come of age. When I get to fifteen elders consider a channel master fitting, if I can perform these tasks.

1. Prog a card
2. Pick up ppv films and mature content.
3. Learn Italian/English

A warrior is born and he is taken to a tent. His 1.5m dish is removed and many children swing in his hanging ear lobe laughing gleafully.

'Son your path is long and hard, go get a licence you goof'

Oi 'and bring back a pack of fish fingers for dinner...not those cheap ones with the skin on the bottom either'

:p
