Help! Cardinal grammeters out of sync! Need answer fast!

I have trouble syncing my cardinal grammeters.

Also my metapolar refractive pilfrometer is acting up lately. Where can I find a replacemet?

Still looking for information on synchronizing cardinal grammeters.

And I checked Amazon.com for metapolar refractive pilfrometers. Bad news. The closest they could get me was a CD of "Best of the Big Band Singers." Does that help at all? It's got Doris Day AND Dick Haymes.

I'll check over on ebay.

Did you RTFM of your Turbo-encabulator?

Have you tried adjusting their fractal basin boundaries? Percussive maintenance is my first fix every time.

Sorry I don't have more to add. I really sympathize. Having poorly timed CGs is enough to give a body acute upper abdominal postprandial distention. You might as well yank the pilfrometer entirely and let the whole mess go transpofinite.

Try re-calibrating your chronosynclastic infindibulum. That always works for me.

One of the flayrods is askew on the treadle.

Oops wrong thread.

It's often just a simple matter of readjusting the frumious cnidoblast.

Has one of the CGs' auxiliary pump been sped up enough to cause cavitation? That can throw them out of sync.

I hate it when that happens. BTW, does anyone have a spare kronkulator for my Interocitor?

Pull the battery. That will get it working for you.

If only there was a place on the internet you could search for something like that.

Oh for goodness sakes, stop making this so difficult. Connect it to your laptop with a USB cable, then CTRL-ALT-DEL. Honestly, people, it's so basic! sheesh.

Sounds like a clear-cut case of Fibia Tibia to me. Last time that happen in my house, we had to reknurl every other klystron before we got things sorted out. Be careful, though, that you only knurl them in a clockwise direction, or you might have to cross the proton streams to get rid of the mess.

The differential griddle spring is probably loose.
Also check the bypass hose to the Metzler valve, sometimes they leak.

Nah. Just hold it two inches above your desk and let go. That will fix anything.


(I still remember being told to try that a long time ago by a manufacturer of some phototypesetting hardware when their keyboards acted flaky).

In THIS situation only, I recommend crossing the streams.

Dirt will impair the functioning of cardinal grammeters. Install an oscillating degunkulator.

Well there's your problem. Without a working metapolar refractive pilfrometer you can't get a good Styknosky number. And without an accurate Styknosky number you can't know how much wire to attach to your Klemmer-Fholstrug unit. And I know you're not even thinking about synching your cardinal grammeters without a properly wired KFU, because that would just be silly.

Everybody knows the solution is to reverse the polarity and reroute the signal through the deflector dish!

You know, it occurred to me that we may be overthinking things. Just readjust the furshlugginer setting on the veeblefetzer by one potrzebie.

For the 3rd Doctor is was simply reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. But then he didn't have a dish.

Don't listen to him. He knows NOTHING about grammeters. It's all because your Bergenholm generators have been cross-circuited to B.

Cardinal Grammeter Synchonization

I know it's been some time since this initial post. Allow me to provide the necessary information to synchronize your Cardinal grammeters.

You need to re-align the two spurving bearings with the semi-boloid slots to eliminate the side fumbling. Also, make sure the malleable logarithmic casing is in line with the panametric fan. The differential girdle spring must be on the "up" end of the grammeter.

After that you should have synchronization. Hopefully this message makes it to you in time. I sent it using a temporal shift.

I tried to send pretty much the same message, but it didn't get through. Is it temporal shift "up", or temporal shift "down"?

Makes no diff. Temporal shift "down" moves it to 2012 via 2013; temporal shift "up" brings it to the same destination, except forward through the next Big Crunch/Big Bang event. It's basically a trade-off between whether you have more time or energy on your hands.

ETA: I would be interested in learning if the OP ever tried the Dick Haymes solution, and if so, how it worked out.

The place for all things metapolar, the discriminating buyer goes to:

lol. Sorry.

AMC or TCM was running "The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer" and the club scene with Cary Grant & Myrna Loy was running when I read this thread.

Its still very funny, and since there's no cake it'll just have to do.
