Re: Tek 465B needs TLC and a good home

Yes. If you're local, it would make things much easier.

Tek 465B needs TLC and a good home

Hi Forum,

I have a Tek 465B with one good channel and one flaky channel. Has blemishes, but is in pretty good shape. Available for the low-low price of FREE.

Send me a postage-paid, padded box and it's yours. I'm in Hayward, CA. If the shipping cost is worth it to you, send me a message.

Re: Wiring issues

If I never have to pull wire again, it will be too soon. Everyone in the audience has a WiFi-enabled personal listening device in their pocket. Ditch the acoustic system and stream the audio to everyone directly. Never again will the sound man have to endure too loud/couldn't hear gripes from people...

Re: Open for ideas for forms software~

Len, I write software for the death care industry. Because the industry is so regulated, there are often a dozen forms to fill out and sign in a given arrangement. We convert paper forms to Acrobat-fillable docs and then use data stored in a DB to fill and print them. Since there are so many similar...

Re: Machine Vision

I just happened onto your post, Lenp. While this isn't a timely suggestion by any stretch, I wonder if it might be helpful. What comes to mind is a collection of web cams, one on each pocket, with a single PC capturing images from them over the LAN. Not sure if $50-$100 per pocket is too costly. in ...

Web frameworks

I've been looking at node.js as a new web platform. Was wondering whether one of you wanted to weigh in on it. Apparently, it's part of the software stack gmail runs on. Has a clever event-driven approach to servicing calls. For some years now, Wicket has been my go-to platform for apps delivered vi...

Re: SATA Hard Drive Slow?

MrAl, Windows XP does a check for the copied/moved file's presence in the target location. I believe it does this even after you've chosen "yes to all" just in case the target folder's contents change through some other action. It's windows trying to protect you from yourself that's slowing you down...

Re: is IT not very smart here ? ( at work )

Dac, Try running msconfig and looking through all the tabs for cmd.exe or command.com or just "cmd". Look for *.bat as well. A batch file may be trying to run a process at shutdown or there may be something executing at startup that never completes. Post-install scripts are notorious for leaving the...

LenP,

When you've chosen a driver, please post which one. I've got a few steppers laying around that are aching for a project.

Re: WHERE ARE THEY?

CaeSar,

I've been busy trying to start a software company. Thus, my off-grid-amenity projects have fallen off a bit. I have some things brewing, need to post progress, time is precious, sure you can sympathize.

Will take some time and update a few threads sometime soon.

Re: WHERE ARE THEY?

Good catch RR! I'm doing a project with the acronym "ETE". Freudian slip. Edited my post so no one is confused by it.

Agreed. They're hitting a sweet spot for analog people.

Re: WHERE ARE THEY?

I build lots of web apps as part of my day gig. I haven't gone through the phpBB (forum software this is) code in particular, but here's my take. Where are they? Well, "they" are likely some combination of bots and crawlers trying to index the site/mine for contact info and ways to post spam. Since ...
