Re: Entropy

Just knocked off another repair.... My touch tone phone at my computer desk has been squirrelly making odd noises instead of tone for years. I was recently tangled up when the credit card company robo called me to approve a questionable purchase by pressing the #1 button and I couldn't. :oops: I jus...

Re: modifying Yamaha MLA7 towards Trans-Amp-like circuit

Back in the day I used truckloads of TL07x and 553x, because they were very good for the money, for the time. WRT to the 5532 they still are a good value: https://proaudiodesignforum.com/forum/php/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1089 They were respectable performers even by today's standards when used conserva...

Re: Comparing The NE555 Timer And LM386 Amplifier As Inductorless DC To DC Converters

You'll have to ask him. I do see the word inductorless repeated. There are off the shelf charge pump ICs to make slick PS... Some low voltage digital interface chips build in charge pumps to deliver required output voltage. ... You might be surprised to know that this is one of the site's consisten...

Re: Entropy

Very clear water, slowly trickling out bottom end of lower pipe, but still standing water in back ditch higher than the drain pickup levels... I am having a hard time not ripping out the silt filters. The fact that outdoor temperature is in 40s is helping me resist for now. :lol: [edit Temperature r...

Re: Dear AT&T: Why I Don't Love You Anymore

Funny, I routinely get ads pushed at me using the wrong town name, those ads that pretend to be local (but are not even close, even while just pretending). JR It hasn't happened again since, now days I am careful to not click the 'let google see your location' button. AGPS is a great idea for fast ...

Re: Dear AT&T: Why I Don't Love You Anymore

Back in the day I think they used sniffers to detect people stealing cable? While that would have to be pretty sensitive. === I have my own wifi drama just trying to get my AT&T (POS) modem wifi to connect to my satellite receiver. Ironic now that AT&T owns Direct TV but for months (year+) they did ...

Re: Dear AT&T: Why I Don't Love You Anymore

when I was working in mobile infrastructure Legal Intercept (love the name) was a real PITA for us to implement in USA. For Europe there was a single agency that could request intercept on a number. In America two (FBI and CIA) so you needed two seperate feeds and no way of one agency telling who t...
