Re: T & L Publications Forum Revamp!

I disagree with the member elimination when inactive for a year. I was unfortunately unable to get back on here for about 8 years. I was very grateful that I could go right back to where I left off (my pictures were missing though). I've been very active on Facebook for 8 years now and manage 7 grou...

Re: Message Board update

Hi, Yes that's always good for an electronics message board. Hi MrAl. I've been checking out the website Electro-Tech Forum; https://www.electro-tech-online.com/ I noticed you've been a member there for years. They have lots of pictures, schematics and files there, that people have uploaded. I'm th...

Re: Message Board update

I tried uploading 3 photos, each with different formats (png, bmp, jpg), but still unable to upload anything. I'd like to start uploading my newest projects with solar yard light designs and modifications, which includes info on the solar light ICs, batteries and Leds. I'll be finishing up these pro...

Re: Nicad Battery Charger with NiMH Batteries.............

If anyone wants to run a few of the cycles' tests, please let us know the results. Let's see; 1000 cycles at maybe 2 hrs charge time = 2000 hrs per cell. We may get pretty old while we're waiting. Lol! I can't help but wonder how the manufacturer came up with 1000 cycles. I know that some guys test ...

Re: Nicad Battery Charger with NiMH Batteries.............

dyarker, I noticed that too. The 3000 on the cell IS the advertised mAh rating being claimed by the BTY company. Here's a link to just one of the bad reviews at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Rechargeable-Battery-3000mAh-Ni-MH-1-2V/dp/B01J838FME#customerReviews I was wondering where he came up with ...

Re: Nicad Battery Charger with NiMH Batteries.............

Janitor Tzap, the BTY batteries I bought on Ebay are complete junk. They tested about 1/5 of the advertised capacity. The best AA NimH batteries I've tested are the Rayovac 2400mAh. They tested at about 2300mAh, also the Energizers were good at 2300mAh. Both run about $2-$2.50 each at my local store...

Re: Message Board update

Isn't that why we don't see much activity here? If we only allow those who know how to get the photos here, I think this forum will continue to degrade. Most of us started electronics for the fun of it I believe. I know I did. If we expect people to just jump in and already know how to use image hos...

Re: Message Board update

Yes, I understand what you're saying and it's fairly easy to upload, copy and paste a link, but only if you have places in mind that'll keep the photo for very long periods of time. The real problem here, that I see, is that most people don't know how to do any of those things. I'm the Administrator...

Re: Message Board update

The first images I upload directly from my computer posted ok, but later was deleted. The next time I tried, this forum said I reached it's quota. I'm assuming your image host is at: www yarker-dsyc.info? I managed, with effort, to use wikimedia for the image host for my hot glue experiments posts. ...

Re: Beheaded fatty nail as soldering tip...

This thread reminds me of when I used to replace the expensive tips with grounding wire. I completely forgot about that. Thanks!

Re: Message Board update

I got a response from him after I pmed Vern on Facebook, and posted "Is this forum dead?" in this forum. Lol!
Don't turn purple. You might get stuck that way. :)
