  1. Came up in my YouTube feed and I thought people here needed a good laugh again.
  2. There won't be a noticeable difference, besides messing up your stuff.
  3. Then obviously the manual is wrong about it's own product.
  4. Why would a low voltage signal matter before amplification?
  5. And I don't care if you feel like you're reading a dissertation. Or in German or Italian.
  6. From an old post of mine, IDK if the links all still work. I highly recommend reading up on AC circuits in this book. http://www.ibiblio.org/kuphaldt/electricCircuits/AC/AC.pdf And if you need some background you might want to start with the DC Circuits book.

  7. Finally got put on a new project that isn't documentation! I get to design my first IC now.

  8. It's a really nice one here, kind of like out main street if we had one.
  9. The smell matters. Does it smell like fire/smoke or does it smell like a rubber?
  10. The moment I got to tell my lab partner I was not going to do the honors project was amazing. Because, he is honors and I'm not and I wrote all the code this semester.

      God I hate assembly. Which assembly language are you using?

    3. neuspeedescort


      a month and it's due tomorrow. i support your not helping

    4. Krakin


      I'm writing for a PICF87.

  11. Just git my Oculus touch remotes in today. They are absolutely amazing.
