Re: The Corona Virus Hoax of 2020

There are 7 different coronaviruses that infect the human body, so there may be general coronavirus anti-body tests lumped in... or a mistake.

Re: I love modern technology

I have no idea why but it took too long to get from MS to FL, and then too long to be delivered. === Do you still need a 5.1 surround decoder? While testing I perceived a very slight audio difference between the two but my newer one has EQ presets that I didn't check the setting. It sounded good eno...

Re: Masks Are Neither Effective Nor Safe: A Summary Of The Science

I almost overheated yesterday while string trimming my front rain ditch... I was wearing a spit mask to keep dirt out of my mouth and I suspect that impaired my heat clearance.

Re: The Corona Virus Hoax of 2020

Even if it is incompetence on the part of the agency reporting it known bad data is being used to advance an agenda. No argument there... In fact it appears they are getting a little desperate. I've watched as the new case news articles drifted from the front page above the fold, to middle of the p...

Re: Entropy... that was easy

This repair is almost too easy to take credit for, but we all need some good news for a change. I responded to a thread about old calculators and noticed that my old HP11c was dead... opining that I should probably remove the dead batteries to avoid incidental damage. I measured the three removed ba...

Re: I love modern technology

There was no tracking visibility for about 85 days. I've discontinued shipping internationally via USPS. If the cus...

Re: I love modern technology

I'm in UK, but have a 'shipping point' with a friend in CA. I ran it all day yesterday with no hiccups. I just turned it on again... If it works through the weekend without messing up, I can send it to your CA address. It is actually a step up from the cheapest of the cheap decoders because it has ...

Re: I love modern technology

Bill where are you located..? I have two old stand alone optical in/analog audio our decoders that work after some fashion. I just plugged up the previous one that has the nice feature of a master volume control. It appears to be working fine, but in the past I encountered loss of decoding sync in u...
