Re: Justice: Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College

Finally got around to reading the articles linked and somewhat horrified. But glad the little guy fought and won! Many small businesses do not have the resources to fight in court, but if you get angry enough, and the offender shows zero remorse, you do what you must. Hopefully this will serve as a...

Re: Entropy

Back on the entropy train, I just replaced my side door doorbell button that has been broken for as long as I can remember. Oddly the cheapest button I found was branded heath/zenith and made in china, no surprise there. For around $5 I got a cheap plastic button with internal light (LED? but could ...

Re: too cheap to fix?

I like fishing line to fix that kind of stuff. A tight sewing machine stitch usually isn’t practical. Fishing line is very durable even with only a few stitches. The heavy thread seems adequate... probably as strong or stronger than the rest of the seams. It was nice to have two pair of gloves in r...

Re: "I Am A Google Deplorable" 855-290-0342

Are you in the E911 database? yes.. I think it was almost 20 years ago when they assigned a rational 4 digit house number to me... 7489 DSCF0170.JPG But... the Post office does not give a flip about E-911 database.... I have several neighbors with PO Boxes in the exact same address catch-22 situati...

Re: Justice: Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College

The political climate is caustic and not getting better... there are some courts that would have sided with the school, luckily they got a fair hearing. These college kids are tomorrows deranged adults. The wine shoplifters were typical petty crooks, but the school's response was way out of line and...

Re: too cheap to fix?

I've seen the Mississipi. Reminded me of kipling and the 'grey green greasy limpopo' :). It's somewhat wider than we have to deal with in UK other than estuaries, but all our rivers are fairly weedy compared to even Europe let alone the rest of the world. Hence why we are just not set up for it. Oh...

Re: too cheap to fix?

The Mississippi river has a lot of water in it this year testing levees in middle America and local flooding already hurting farmers prenting them from planting their crops. ==== Replaced my house numbers with slightly larger... but they did not have all the numbers I needed in black, so i bought re...

Re: too cheap to fix?

I think the rain moved to England. I'm in Chianti this week, but apparantly some parts of uk had 100mm (4") in under 24 hours. Normal rainfall for whole month is under 80mm. Chaos has ensued. Here its high 80s and dry :) 4" is significant depending on how fast and how dry you were before... I've se...

Re: too cheap to fix?

I already have some heavy duty thread I bought when I sewed a new zipper into my old winter jacket. This glove repair is on my to-do list, but pretty low on that list. Since I bought two pair last time I still have one serviceable pair. ==== I'm backordered tuners so was doing smd rework this mornin...

Re: A Discussion About True Power Summing for Stereo Compressors

I still don't understand the question/application. Is this for a new design, or to modify and existing design to overcome a problem? Does a single side chain mean single set of controls for both channels or single control voltage for both channels. It is not unusual to have insert jacks for side cha...
