Re: I love modern technology

If you can reach the solder pad at all with an iron tip you should be able to melt it, maybe put some fresh solder on the tip.

I reworked SMT with an old school iron for years before upgrading to hot air... hot air is better/easier.

Re: I love modern technology

The rapid decline in prices has encouraged me to replace TVs before they fail... then I hand them down to serve as computer monitors... 55" is going to be silly large but I'm old and it will be easier to read. That will bump the still working 44" to squirrel cams... The 44" has one bad pixel but onl...

Re: I love modern technology

I rarely get surprised by a new product that exceeds my expectations, especially when I buy stuff because its cheap. I recently upgraded to a 65" TV for my living room, but admittedly it was an impulse buy for only $398.... I didn't even know it was ROKU, until after it arrived, but apparently it is...

Re: Mask-Wearing: This Is Our Life Now (Or is It?)

I can confirm that it is harder to breath wearing a n95 mask. :oops: but I only use mine for about 20 minutes a week. Covid aerosols range from 60-140nm and particulate masks only filter out 200-300nm particles. I remain optimistic about commercialization of far UVc (human safe UV light) that kills ...

Re: Mask-Wearing: This Is Our Life Now (Or is It?)

I have no problems with frequent hand washing. Enjoy your life in the masked cult JR. Consider that maybe the "ritual" screed is a mind f__k to get you infected or maybe worse... :roll: Some kids do not appreciate their elders because they hold strong opinions and are not easily swayed, a few less ...

Re: Mask-Wearing: This Is Our Life Now (Or is It?)

I wear a mask in stores, and wash my hands more often than I used to...

Not BS rituals...

Re: Parametric eq with only two opamp sections

Here's a SIM I did on this some years back on the Crest Century V12 which has variable Q in this topology: Crest_Century_V12_mideq_SIM.pdf Looks to me like Q and gain are not interacting too much. Here's the schematic (also a JP design): Crest_Century_V12_mideq.pdf Thanks for the sim... That is def...

Re: They Walk Among Us

Some are postulating that SDNY US Attorney Berman was fired because he had been sheltering Ms. Maxwell. No more trips to the In and Out Burger for her... :lol: He was more likely out of favor for investigating POTUS and family. We need to start the suicide watch for Maxwell, she has the dope on too...
