“So what do you think about the late winter?”
Well, It’s getting harder to deer these days. I’ve been deering for three years now and hope to keep deering for the next ten. Winter is tough deering anyway
“Thank you, deer. Back to you, April”
“America’s quietest routes”: The least travelled, most scenic routes in the U.S. Might be fun to drive this list some day
So many studio folks use plain boring foam panels on their walls to dampen reverb
If that's your aesthetic, then fine, but I wonder why they don't hang a canvas painting over them. Canvas ink/oil doesn't really affect perceptible sound attenuation and the place looks nicer. Your mood affects so much of your content
If you make your own box frame, it may work even better. Generally 2" (~5cm) or more is preferred for fiber insulation
I see very few folks doing this
Golf is cue ball-only outdoor pool
one thing I learned is that simpler, less efficient things win against more complex but efficient things almost every single time.
almost, unless there's a good reason.

I miss this quirky aesthetic. Nowadays, most consumer cameras look almost identical
Olympus leaving the camera business would be the end of an era. I hope the new company buying it will keep making good cameras

“To calculate [distance to turn], the electronics box is connected to the car’s odometer via what looks to be a physical/mechanical cable connection that drives a gear-based mechanism inside the box, which allows the number of miles to be tabulated, and, when the number of miles equals the value provided by the tone duration, the next instruction is played.”
While we're at it, since this is an international forum of sorts, I would also like to point out a very important difference between how things are wired in-building between e.g. north america and e.g. the uk.
In my chosen country of canada, things are different!
I think the idea of ring mains belongs in the same wheely bin as daylight savings time.
But that's just me.
me: i am fundamentally opposed to the military. history is a record of their atrocities
my therapist: that's fair
me: but i love it when a single mech breaks through a heavily fortified position and descends via a single long mineshaft into an enemy base full of sprawling tunnels to destroy the enemy’s experimental weapon
my therapist: who doesn't
@cypnk amasci.com is the site that I keep pointing my pinball students to when they think they've encountered a short but don't exactly know what a short IS. It doesn't shy away from telling you the truth about electricity and forcing your brain to pretzel around the information, rather than letting electricity be a nice mathy abstraction for clever people.
And he's got a page just for grounding! http://amasci.com/amateur/whygnd.html
For something as important for safety, there's an awful lot of misconceptions about grounding and electricity in general. I don't think most of us have really understood what it is, let alone decide what's safe to do vs. what was "done all the time". That's even before getting into building codes and such
