Paul, I see you do not like track power or DCC.
I do, and I DO "have it all" from your own wish list, it was an hinest, objective response.
I'm not knocking battery, just that I have a solution that fits your "have it all" list in terms of functionality.
So, keeping this on a "what are the features I want" level is good.
You knocking DCC (which you did), and me knocking battery (which I am not doing) is not really helpful, don't you think?
I just saw the latest pot-shot Lewis took at DCC, where Aristo is doing "cruise control" and it will be better than BEMF that the DCC people use.
Let's stay out of these wars. I promise to do my best.
So, you want to "have it all" AND be battery. OK.
I'm content to just "have it all" .... ha ha...
Well Greg - Since you asked .... I just see your response to Paul as nothing more than a lecture on how he should express himself on this site. I don't see the title of "Moderator" next to your name, yet you seem to be assuming that role. I found Paul's response very interesting. Not because I am against DCC ( I am not, although I don't use it), just that I had not heard of these types of issues with DCC before. I found it very informative. It was just mentioned on another thread about GR magazine how product comparison can't really be done without retrobution from the advertisers. We can make comparisons here. That is the value of this site!
I guess anytime anyone expresses an opinion on a public forum, they are open for attack, or at least they should be prepared for a response by someone. But I think we could have more open communication if we thought we could just express our opinion here on MLS without having to defend it every time.
And as far as "wars" go, of late, I seem to see every thread on every topic turned into a DCC promotion. If the number of pro DCC posts count in the "war", I think you are certainly winning. Since I do sell a battery power product, I do try to refrain from getting in the middle of these things with nothing more than the mention of an option. You may notice that both mine and Paul's post counters don't have nearly as many digits as yours.
And back on topic ... I would like to see a motor and some lights connected to a terminal strip (screw terminals). Shall we now rehash the whole super socket scenario?
