[time-nuts] Topic Cops

I am so sick and tired of the "topic cops". I do not know how many interesting discussions I was following, that  they have killed. In all of my years as an electrical engineer and engineering VP this group has some of the most unfriendly and pretentious individuals I have ever encountered. 

It's not as if the time domain was filled with two dozen state of the art discussions competing for space, because it is just not so. Please, if people are learning and growing, let it be as long as the topic is at least somewhat related to time and related devices. This certainly includes battery backup systems.

Please be more tolerant. It is a hobby as well as a profession.

Best regards  john c roos K6IQL

That's for sure.  Lead Acid batteries run everything except where power
density is critical.
We all need to know as much as possible about them.  I thought that I knew a
lot, but the dialogue on this list has raised my understanding

Thanks to all who have contributed so far.  A treasure trove of information.

Ever use batteries to back up your time toys David?

I would bet they were lead acid.  More that a few folks on this group are
using lead acid to run such things.  Discussions of charging, discharging,
and care of batteries is just as apropos, in my opinion, as discussions on
which coax to use, or which receiver to use to run your GPSDO... Or for that
matter which SBC to use to run your favorite time hack.

It is all part of the infrastructure necessary to make the study of fine
time possible.
