A $75 pair of shorts for each of my kids for LAX/hockey. Damn growth spurts. WTF Shock Doctor. And why does nobody else make the same for less?
Bad balanced is worse than good single end. And in a home setting, xlr is overkill unless you actually setup a studio like Trigve of "Yes this is my desk Nick" fame.I must disagree. For $11 bucks, it's worth trying, IMO.
I re-wired my high-end headphones to have a balanced input, since my headphone amp has a balanced output.
Thrustmaster wheel. Turns out racing games/sims are awesome if you play them with the proper controller.
So very tempting. I had a cheapo one (https://www.amazon.com/Genius-TwinWheel-F1-Vibration-Wheel/dp/B000ODVKUC) and the only game it worked on was NFS Most Wanted on my PC. Kids also loved it and reminded me of it just the other day which says something.
I want something for Forza Horizon 4. $150 is steep for 1 game though. Is it guaranteed to be future-proof?
Had a wheel/pedal setup for my Dreamcast, good times with that. Actually still have them, need to clean them up and see if they still work.Thrustmaster wheel. Turns out racing games/sims are awesome if you play them with the proper controller.
You’re so long in the tooth you need a tape measure.
Whatcha makin?Just recently bought a new router:

Plus side is batteries seem to last forever anymore. I got my truck used in 2016, and the battery's still going strong. I'd be fairly pleased if that were a new battery. Used is remarkable compared to the bad old days.I bought the kid a new car battery...ouch.

Long story but he was 2hrs away and clueless. Can't be the 2002 original but I'll find out how old Saturday when I work on it.Plus side is batteries seem to last forever anymore.

OMG, you old.I remember belted tires priced by "ply" and good for maybe 10k miles.
That was an interesting article. Bias ply was a bit before my driving time, but there was still a lot of literature comparing/contrasting the styles when I started driving, though everyone was using radials at that point.
Radial Tires Stir Battle in U.S. Rubber Industry (Published 1972)Article discusses controversy in US tire indus over use of radial tires which, advocates contend, provide more puncture resistance and last longer than standard bias ply tires; some tire experts hold radials, with textile cords placed at 90-degree angle from car's line of travel as compared with...www.nytimes.com
They do that around here, and least in some ways. They have leds at the dollar store for $1 of course, and goodwill gets them also, as well as discounts at homedepot and such. You know damned well they cost more than $1 to make and sell. They're being subsidized by the energy company. Works for me too.And I just bought 5 new led lights for the office to replace the 4' florescents. Power company came by with a contractor, $800 job and I paid $200. Will save $270 over the next year...supposedly. Very cool though. The led panel is about the thickness of a regular ceiling tile. 5 year warranty on the lights.
Sounds like the energy company is trying to reduce demand so they don't have to increase infrastructure. Works for me.
