Another lost treasure of the internet is the sci.electronics.repair FAQ.
Just look at this goddamn thing. Thousands and thousands of words, chock-full of battle tested wisdom, enough to help anyone with some motivation solve their problems. Zero monetization, zero bullshit. What ever happened to that Internet? I sure do miss it.
Yeah, not having a face is even more creepy
Connecting to a car. For some reason this reminded me of the time I was in New Mexico back when I worked in Telecom. The locals at the site assured us that their ancient Sola 48VDC rectifier was rated to handle their old and new switches at the same time. They powered up their new switch so I could start database translation and the Sola gave up in a puff of smoke and flames. Joking, I considered lining up 4 cars with jumper cables to power the old switch. That's exactly what they did.
In better news, I found I can just barely squeeze an entire ATMega328, optocouplers, and my experimental 10V-52V switching power supply into a single board. Which means, I can connect this to a car battery or similar directly and/or solar panel and share the same rails as the device(s) it's controlling
Welp, there it is
#OnlyFans is now banning "sexually explicit conduct". However that's defined. Meanwhile, nudes are still allowed. Guess the funding was worth it
they had a 6502 second processor to run the Econet server at my high school computer room (12 BBC Micro Model B, 4 BBC Master + the server from 1986-1989, some Archimedes appeared after then but they didn't get put on the Econet as they were in a different area of the school).
(I put a RAT in the Econet system in 1986 😁 🐀 )
