Some software and hardware updates now available for the QED.More  QED firmware updates (inc Auto GB  option) just announced here. New  QED hardware updates/options and pictures will be posted  first here  as they become available.

Another satisfied QED user! QED user report for 9 days detecting! User loves it, found it easy to use,found gold with it and he prefers it to his 5000! Also a report on a QED used at the beach for coin shooting.QED users reporting in with their multi ounce gold finds with the QED!
From  another QED user today:"Been out and about today testing and comparing against other machines etc in ground that has been horrible in the past.Bround balancing Ive found very simple and easy.'m using the Nokia booster but need a little more sound/threshold.Otherwise no complaints from me, very impressed."
and :"My QED with the 8” commander on it, out performed my SDC Got bits that don't register on my scales SDC has since been sold"

Stinky  Pete :http://www.detech-metaldetectorsaustralia.com.au/ and Goldsearch Australia have been appointed the Australian Distributors for the QED.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED and  also some very experienced QED users.
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin  (or Doug here for that matter!)have NO vested  or pecuniary interests(or secret deals or cash for comment or any other undisclosed benefits )in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully! The ONLY people deriving  an income from the QED(other than finding good gold) are the 2 approved retailers and Bugwhiskers! The ONLY investor in the QED is Bugwhiskers!
I have never met Jrbeatty or Reg Wilson at Howards house or ANY other location!

HI DOUG- would it be possible to limit members time frame to edit posts to 15 minutes ??
my reasoning for this is being open slather like it is now allows members to back edit an argument or point well after other members have responded to change the context thereby inadvertently or intentionally making another to look like a dickhead. this can be used to start a flaming war!!

i realise that the edits are date stamped but how many people actually take notice of that and the purpose of the edit should only be meant for incorrect spelling or such. there is still the option of asking you to correct mistakes after that time elapses on their behalf if it is warranted or re-posting further down the thread to get other points across.

You raise a good point Dusty.

I frequently edit my posts. It is ALWAYS to correct spelling & grammar, or occasionally to improve clarity or meaning. If the meaning or intent of my post is changed, or is being refined or extra is added I say so. I don't do this ever to retract or change my argument, as I rather change a post than continually make lots of new short posts. (ie I post enough as it is!) This is my personal perspective & method of course, and every poster is different. Same happens on another forum. I won't be changing my style unless the editing conditions change.

HI HUEGO- i believe that most member's (yourself included) show good intent with the editing of posts and i can't remember a post being used here in that way in the past but with the temptation now removed this is one accusation none of us has to face.

p.s.- happy new year!

Hi Dusty, I just remembered how a Flounder called PJ changed his post & wager last year (and lied) in order to save face (embarrassment) and $ losses. It was an indirect acknowledgement of his fear of the QED that made him do it. He was full of abuse, thrown at me for exposing him.  ::38::
Such exposition is my (self appointed) role here, eg with screen shots (see elsewhere!)

Perhaps substantive edits should be explained* eg edited for typos / spelling / clarity of meaning / to save face / to save money / to lie / avoid explanation etc etc  Clown.

Yes, Happy New Year mate. Thanks for your friendship & support over the past year.

Cheers, Huego  happy face

* edited once to improve clarity.

Hi Dusty I need often to after-correct my inglish at least 1 hour. If you make citation there is no doubt on what is your comment based. Citation remain unchanged.

Hi Doug,

Quite often when I re-read my post there is a spelling mistake or some little typo error.
So I dive in to correct those and sometimes for 2 or 3 goes.

I think 24 hours is enough to pick up mistakes.

doug happy face

Hi Doug,

That was a good move!  Sometimes it takes a while to detect typos, etc.

Another suggestion:  Would it be possible to scroll down the"Recent Posts" window?  At this time, the window shows only the most recent posts.  It would be useful to go back further...

I don't think its possible to change from the default of 10 pages=  about 4 days back.

Changing the default is not a trivial task as it involves editing the PHP coding for the forum index page. On the SMF support forums they say that this has proved to be a problem and if done incorrectly( the coding change varies from theme to theme!) it can mess up the index page and bugger up the posting order!
So i don't think i will have ago!
