Re: Microwave x 2

I've seen that in a lot of industries. Never any compensation for saving a company thousands if not millions of dollars either. I've also seen workers stand around and watch machines destroy themselves, rather than shutting them off when a part started to fail. Don't get me started on nit-wit engine...

Re: Microwave x 2

I used Deionized water in my Reef Aquaria. Aquarium Pharmaceuticals sold a Mixed Bed Deionization Column. They mixed the two resins to make the unit disposable, but doing so also shortened the viability of the unit. It was also a major waste of the resins which will last a long time, if not forever....

Re: Not Very

We have a whole list of Weasel Words we are taught to avoid. They may be used in certain cases where another word would never work. We are also to avoid the use of words ending in ...ing or ...ly, except for the word badly. The word THAT can, in most cases, be deleted and would not change the meanin...

Re: Microwave x 2

Yeppers! Water is one of the most interesting of all things to study. It has properties unlike anything else I know of. It is possible to get water too pure though, such as triple distilled, or deionized. You wouldn't want to drink pure water, it would suck the electrolytes out of your body. Without...

Re: Not Very

The word "Very" comes from the Weasel List of words as writers we are not allowed to use, hi hi.

Re: 8086 Is 40 Years Old

I do know it wasn't just the big cities that had Mobile Operators, because of the locations I was sent to work. I can't honestly say I had coverage between my assigned points. But I did break down a couple of times in what I would consider remote areas and the phone worked, although it had a lot of ...

Re: 8086 Is 40 Years Old

I understand. I was sorta in the same boat myself. I was a draftsman for several years, and touched on some major projects in a small way. When I first started, about the only tools we had were a Slide Rule and a Friden Machine. The advent of a calculator retired the slide rule, and a scientific cal...

Re: Glass Disks to replace CD, DVD, and USB Sticks

I did have a multi-stage filter as my first attempt to keep the room air clean. It had several filter pads, the smallest pad being 5 microns. The other pads were to keep the 5 micron pad from clogging up so quick. Well, it clogged up fast, like once every three days, in a closed room, and finally bu...

Re: Microwave x 2

Electromagnetic radiation when up in the light emitting ranges (above our vision range of course) is called photons. Below light emitting ranges they are called radio waves. I have no idea what they call the range that is in the light wave region but used to carry radio signals. I do know a microwav...

Re: Glass Disks to replace CD, DVD, and USB Sticks

The noise from fans don't bother me. But I really should build a cabinet to hold all of my computers with an air filter and intake fan. The cooling fins on my CPU's get clogged up really fast with dust. I built this room almost too airtight and have had to add exhaust vents in here just to get fresh...

Re: 8086 Is 40 Years Old

I became quite adept at programming the 6502 in Basic.
So much so, Beagle Bros. Software offered me a job, because of some of the tricks I could do.
Of course, as soon as they learned I knew nothing else other than what I was doing with Basic, well that ended that.

Re: Microwave x 2

I understand it, but don't know if I can explain it very well. It's not exactly like a radio wave where all receivers can pick up the signal. The Photons bounce around, lose energy, and get absorbed by the item you are cooking. How about if I try it this way. Take 100 ping pong balls and drop them i...

Re: 8086 Is 40 Years Old

Hmm, I remember the 8080A in PCs, and the 6502 in Apple's. I preferred the 6502 over the 8080A! 8086 must have been the first of the x86 chips? I don't remember what was in my 286 or 386 machines. But don't recall them having more than 32 bit boards. At least I knew how to program in Basic back then...

Re: Glass Disks to replace CD, DVD, and USB Sticks

You also have to be super careful when working on your computer and looking for what codes to type in. Folks on websites are often trolls looking to mess up your computer even more, even on the trusted websites. We are in a battle with Comcast for charging us rental on equipment we own. Caught them ...

Re: Microwave x 2

Yes, the volume of what is in the microwave determines how long it needs to cook. It's actually faster to do one item at a time, because it's not a 50/50 deal here. A scenario - If it takes 1 minute to bring 1 cup of water to a full boil (not the first chemical release boil). Logically, it would tak...

Re: Glass Disks to replace CD, DVD, and USB Sticks

I'm at the library quite often and I see students in there doing their homework, sometimes on their own laptops using the libraries WiFi, but often using the libraries desktop computers which are much faster than laptops. The thing I noticed is they all seem to plug a USB stick into the computer to ...

Re: Glass Disks to replace CD, DVD, and USB Sticks

We have several of the little USB sticks. I carry a couple of them in my pocket with some data I share, and also to see if static or anything else causes them to fail. So far, none of them have stopped working. We have a few devices that use the slip inside little flat memory cards. The first downfa...

Re: Glass Disks to replace CD, DVD, and USB Sticks

Don't forget, my fear of using a NAS became REALITY when my NAS went south. I keep a backup of my data files on two external drives which ARE NOT attached to my system, only long enough to transfer the days files from one backup to another. Even then, there could be problems, which is why I do thing...
