Re: Entropy

With my own voice echoing in my head saying "if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right", I finished widening the last 25' of the trench so now it's side by side the entire length. As I expected it was easier with both pipes pulled up out of the trench but not exactly "make it so #2" easy.. :lol: W...

Re: Entropy

Does it ever stop raining? Looks like no rain again until..... Tuesday. :lol: JR [edit I hate to admit it, but I am seriously considering widening the last 25'. It would be easier if I pull both pipes out of the trench, instead of widening trench with one pipe still in. If I go this way, I need to ...

Re: Entropy

The never ending rain ditch project is slowly reaching a denouement, mission creep and plan flip flops have not completely stopped but as I button this puppy up there are less opportunities for changes.

Re: How Can We Piss Off Our Customers Today? A P&G Case Study

Funny but sounds fake...

This is all about appealing to millennials so I cannot imagine if this would be successful, or not.

The Nike/Keapernick ad was panned too.

entropy continued?

Testing one two... Since much of my entropy thread is about repairs, maybe it should be here. A new observation about my solar driveway lamp modifications: the stock lamp clearly captures less light than Frank III... So turns on sooner at dusk and off sooner too. But for a bunch of time before winki...

Re: How Can We Piss Off Our Customers Today? A P&G Case Study

You can get coal tar shampoo here in the US in the Nutragena brand. I can't handle the oil smell from an electric. The smell of oil doesn't bother me but razor oil doesn't seem to wash off. I had a plumbing repair that required threading a short piece of pipe. It took months for the oil taste and s...

Re: was HYPEX amps cheap surround system

I got my basket case AV receiver, hypex modules, and wiring harness sets from hypex... running short on excuses. The AV receiver is like 30#+ with big EI transformer, 5 1/4" fan, and big aluminum heat sink inside. I haven't been brave enough to plug it in yet, and may not yet. There is no visible re...

Re: modifying Yamaha MLA7 towards Trans-Amp-like circuit

Curiosity veer; I looked back at what Mackie was doing in the 8 bus series. I recall times I liked the Yamaha sound over the Mackie by a bit, it was probably the distortion on the loud rock bands I was tracking at the time. https://www.proaudiodesignforum.com/forum/php/download/file.php?id=554&mode...

Re: How Can We Piss Off Our Customers Today? A P&G Case Study

I see a fault in this logic. The women who don't like hairy men send them for a back, sack and crack wax. I don't get it, but hey ho consenting adults and all that :) My wife is Indian so I am considerably LESS hairy than her original marriage expectations. Win Win. Fun fact: Guerneville CA where m...

Re: How Can We Piss Off Our Customers Today? A P&G Case Study

I often end up defending music industry companies for decisions that were pretty much forced on them by customers (like making gear in China). Many consumer companies today are deathly afraid of offending the twitter-verse, so act according to the new PC police. Formerly powerless consumers now have...
