Re: Entropy

They're clearing out the underbrush in a vacant lot two doors down to build. Since the lot is heavily-sloped and very dense they had to clear before they can develop a floor plan. A few years ago the previous owner had a crew do a full topo survey but there's nothing like getting in there and figuri...

Re: End of "The Telephone Flea Market"

I never knew it started on Friday night. Being in/near Dallas' West End on a Friday night in a parking lot may explain why the land owner didn't want to renew the lease.

Re: Entropy

The tree guy was able to cut all that with his bucket truck parked on the paved side road Excellent. Best way all-around. My ex-neighbor used to have an uncle who was a free-lance cable tech by day and bucket truck branch cutter on the weekends. His cable clients didn't like paying him for weekends...

Re: Entropy

I didn't know about Home Depot selling houses, but IIRC back in the very old days the Sear's mail order catalog sold house kits. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/12/1922_Sears_Modern_Homes_Catalog.jpg/250px-1922_Sears_Modern_Homes_Catalog.jpg https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikip...

Re: End of "The Telephone Flea Market"

First Saturday lost their lease under the Woodall Rogers Freeway after moving from the North Ross location I remember as a kid. The website and Facebook page says the last one was in 2018. My brothers took me there in the late 1960s and we would go to the First Saturday Sale as well as Crabtree Elec...

End of "The Telephone Flea Market"

DOVER — After 45 years on the air, WOKQ and WPKQ have pulled the plug on “The Telephone Flea Market.” The radio flea market was a tradition for many New Hampshire listeners who would tune in Sunday mornings to hear about the items callers were selling around the state and other parts of New England...

ExpressPCB now includes Gerber files with every order

ExpressPCB now includes Gerber files with every order no matter how small. You're only locked into buying the first set of boards and it can be a super-small order. I've opened their Gerbers in DFMNow! and they work just fine. Some PCB manufacturers use different file extensions but that is fixed by...

Re: Op amp matching

Pulling numbers out of air: If I have 100 uV of preamp output noise above the servo cutoff frequency what good is 10 uV DC precision? Try running experiments in the real world with real components rather than simulation. If you connect a DC voltmeter to the output of a servo'd high gain preamp and m...

Re: Op amp matching

It may be ineffective to reduce Vos much further below 100µV given that the 1/f noise of the preamp will dominate.

Re: was HYPEX amps cheap surround system

I have some Hypex nCore modues on my bench right now that are in a client's bass amp.

Do you see about 1V P-P of residual carrier on the output?
