Re: How do you explain....

Well since the end of last year I've dumped (sold): -iphone, ipad, watch, mac pro, macbookpro (still have AEBS!) - xbox one, 360, and PS4. Gee-whiz fact: the latency on the Wii U's gamepad's wireless display is *less* than any HDMI TV (admittedly, a low bar). It also doubles as a TV remote which is ...

Re: Car Talk

Fluid Film.

Put it on under our old escape and not a spot of rust after many ohio and ontario winters.

IIRC only the bodywork on DMC's were aluminum. The rest of the car rotted away even more quickly than normal. I talked to an owner at a car show once so I'm now instantly an expert 8-)

Re: How do you explain....

I have a laptop, wii U, switch, and PS2. I use them for the normal things that normal people use their normal computery-type things for. :D Tho the only game I've played recently on the PS2 is Rez and that was several months ago. I'm glad I went through the big-iron-hoarding phase, but I'm also glad...

Re: Car Talk

Well I washed my wife's car. Took the 90 seconds to adjust the trunk lid stoppers so the inner and outer tail lamps actually line up with each other. I've never seen another challenger that has these set properly, even brand new they are waaaay off and nobody cares :/ Could probably do with another ...

Re: Car Talk

GM's aren't meant to last more than 3 years. This one was on borrowed time. The only good thing about GM cars is that you can lease them for $39 or $49 / week. Which is honestly not a bad deal if you don't care about cars and don't live in an area that has a good rideshare/carshare program. But if y...

Re: The Problem with Apple

So I was in the neighborhood today (actually at a customer site in Pryor OK) and I stopped to visit my friend Scott Weaver at Superior Auto Electric in Tulsa. For the record not only is he a damn fine auto electrician he is also credited with many of the wiring diagrams in the Haynes manuals (he's c...

Re: The Problem with Apple

Can't watch the video, but... The difference being with cars if you can't afford IDS/Tech2/WiTech you can get a cheap scanner from mahle or snap on for under 10 grand that will do almost everything a factory scanner will do (the issue being they tend to not work with the newest models). Apple has re...

Re: Turning your back on windows

Sure my thinkpad w520 still has the socket but I haven't seen a (monitor/tv/projector) with vga in several years. Most monitors DP, TVs HDMI, projectors either HDMI or some wireless thing (at our offices we have chromecast in conference rooms but apple tv seems fairly common as well). Hell even my v...

Re: Turning your back on windows

of course windows 10 is a joke for professional use. and i'm not even talking about things that involve sensitive data. Professional or not, the world either runs on Windows or mac OS with a majority on Windows--choose your poison; and that's not about to change any time soon since people still use...

Re: I'd like to build a (micro)cassette tape unit

Yes, first you get it working, then you make it "gooder" :D IIRC (I am no expert) that qpsk is around 2bit/sec per Hz of bandwidth. So 4khz bandwidth could be up to 8kbit/sec 60kbytes/minute or 5.4 megabytes on a c90. I'm wondering how close that is to reality. Next step: cutting data trac...

Re: I'd like to build a (micro)cassette tape unit

FSK? Why not QPSK?

Cassettes have couple khz of bandwidth, I think you can get the storage a lot higher than 64kb on a c90 :)
