Re: Microphone in a bubble...

an electret mic is not the highest fidelity options on todays market anyway. Its handy because it can be used with Voltage boas rather than current bias. Most of these could probably be waterproofed by simply putting tape over the sound port and sealing the electrical contacts in epoxy. They may al...

Re: USB-C, 100 watts?

USB is universal serial bus (and upper side band). A data connection. Paired with supply for convenience. You can build a USB cable with AWG14? copper conductors to provide 20 Amperes for supply. For what device as source ? A USB source is not meant to provide power, it is meant for serial data comm...

Re: How do I add an attachment

Hi Dacflyer. Hope you are dry by now.

Photobucket decided to block access from third parties a couple of years ago; and I closed my account. Have they resumed access as originally ? Can you please attach here an image from your Photobucket the way you describe ?

Re: T & L Publications Forum Revamp!

Thank you for your good intentions.

On your opening for suggestions, I would ask for periodical presence of the personnel in charge of this forum site, or a working way to report anomalies.

Previous forums you were in...

Nothing of importance, just to help remember the history of defunct forums...
I remember Microsoft groups, Popular electronics, Electronics Now as forums some of us frequented (or resided in) since middle 90's.
Can you refresh the sequence or others since the early times ?

Re: TV lacking remote control...

Yes, I did cycle power as first action, did not mention that.
Today, did not respond to remote again. Turned on with panel button, and after a while, obeyed the remote. Intermittent something. Perhaps I will end beating Murphy this time as cannot probe any circuit in it.
