america, trash, lol
Bald Eagles, Symbol of America, Are Dumping Trash on the Seattle Suburbs: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/02/us/bald-eagles-trash-seattle.html
OK, so the Accell J129B-003B HDMI to VGA adapter may only be rated for 225 MHz... but it seems to do 278.7 MHz just fine.
I don't know how well it'd do the really high speed modes up to 340 MHz - 2048x1536 @ 74.895 Hz would be a good test - but that's pushing the monitor to its very limits, and it's not guaranteed to sync up to that.
...however, I did learn that my Raspberry Pi apparently can't push pixels that fast, the monitor couldn't sync until the OS forced it down to 1600x1200 85 Hz.
So, in the past, I've suggested that something narrower, lower, and lighter - but not as hardcore as most current velomobiles - would be a good idea, to fit into cycling infrastructure, and be practical to ride without electric assistance, and be good with 250 W of assistance (the ELF uses a 750 W motor, the legal limit in the US).
I still think that.
However, I saw this photo, of a man standing next to a second-generation Subaru Sambar (known as the 360 Van in the US). That... inspired ideas.
So, the Organic Transit ELF is a vehicle that is marketed as a car-replacement, with room for one rider, optionally a seat for 1-2 passengers depending on size, and some cargo.
Its manufacturer calls it a velomobile, as it's legally a bicycle, but provides protection from the elements. That assertion is very controversial within the velomobile community, though, as most velomobiles lack electric assist, whereas this, at 160-200 lbs, *NEEDS* it.
uspol, "suicide", police murder
"A 19-year-old woman whose hands were cuffed behind her back when she committed suicide during a traffic stop in Chesapeake died of a gunshot wound through the mouth, according to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner."
A selection of my memory-in-pixel devices.
From left to right:
Pebble Time Round (I think this is a JDI LPM010R030A, 0.99", 180x180 round, 2 bpc color... and yes, the battery is dead)
Pebble Time Steel (variant of JDI LPM013M126C, 1.28"/1.14" active, 176x176/144x168 active, 2 bpc color)
Pebble (Sharp LS013B7DH05, 1.26", 144x168, 1bpp mono)
SwissMicros DM42 (Sharp LS027B7DH01A, 2.7", 400x240, 1bpp mono)
Sharp WG-S50 (Sharp LS060S2UD01, 6.0", 600x800, 2bpp mono with 4bpp dithering support)
And finally, let's take it apart.
Four screws and a bit of fingernail action later, we're inside.
Battery: 3.7 V 1800 mAh Li-ion
SoC: Generalplus GPL32650A (96 MHz ARM7TDMI)
RAM: Piecemakers PMS306416CTR-6CN (4Mx16, or 8 MiB, 166 MHz SDRAM)
Flash: Samsung KLM8G1GETF-B041 (8 GiB eMMC)
Also notable is a PIC16F1508, which I believe is handling battery management among other things, based on a cursory analysis of the original WG-N10 firmware.
