Now thats what I call an explanation! My head exploded the first time, I got up, re-read it (had wrapped tape around my head to stop explosion :grin: ) That said, I was able to get Black and White working. The actual "bit banging" is simple, but man oh man, it's all about the timing! I was able to i...

Norelco LFH 0095/54 Tape recprder

Hi all, Does anyone know anything about the Norelco LFH 0095/54 Recorder? I just picked one up, and need to know how to power the thing! I cannot locate any hidden door (maybe it's still hidden?! :shock: ) where I can insert batteries etc. I'm now guessing it's powered magically. At night magic pixi...

But there is a 0.047uf rated at 50v for $0.09 per (more like it!), and I cannot find a 250uf. Quesiton,...

Since the VGA plug is polarized, a manufacturer would need to make 4 directions of right angle adapters to satisfy the market (not a good investment IMO). Those BASTARDS! :mad: Don't they know it's me?! I should be all they care about. :mad: Thats a good idea about an external hub, I did not think ...

100% OT! Blackhole question(s)...

Hi all, I just watched a straight to DVD movie "Black Hole", not the Disney one. In this story, some scientests create a blackhole (and a bad guy that comes from it, but thats here nor there) and it starts to suck things in. Okay, from the little I've read about blackholes, here are some questions; ...

Can anyone recommend an automatic wirewrapping tool? You know, auto strip...

what you have is correct. If it doesn't ring, it's because the ringer is broken or disconnected or the clapper is restricted. the clapper looks fine...I think the ringer may be the issue... Whats the best way to check this? Can I just put some volts on the connections and make the magnet work manua...
