General Chat / Re: Martin lorton needs a hand

Regarding people's rate of speech, I see that several comments mention watching at higher playback speeds, as do I. Depending on the accent, material being covered, and presentation style, it's possible to save a lot of time this way.

It's odd that YouTube provides 1.25x, 1.5x, and 2x playback speed settings, but only one rate, 0.5x, that's slower than normal. Isn't that a bit too slow? If you're listening to someone who speaks very quickly (as some others have lamented earlier), a speed of 0.9x or 0.75x would probably be more helpful. No?

To those who've commented about people speaking too quickly, do you change the playback to 0.5x or is that too slow?

Only youtuber I could imagine watching at 0.5x speed would be Collinfurze  >:D

Cool, I wish they were still building them in Rohnert Park as it is about 20 miles up 101 from me.  The 8640b is a great signal source, I have an 8648D synthesized source which has a broader range but I wish it had the spectral purity of some of the other generators they made.  Good luck on your search.

You countered with the same amount as your prior offer? That's amazing. I figured one would get the instant silent treatment in return. Fascinating. :popcorn:

It was suggested that they lose data.
No difference with the error, still mostly "A/D conversion error (overflow)".

Cool! I haven't seen a 160 before, nor red nixies. Not a bad price either. Does it need any work? Looks pretty good.

Seems to work fine on all ranges I have tried. There is a hand written note on the bottom that it was reading 0.3% high on the 100 mv range, the note is dated 18 Sept, 1988. I had a quick peak inside, I see some chips dated 1973.
The meter is very clean inside and out. There is an "Environment Canada" asset tag on the back so we know who has always owned it. It was listed for $50.00, I offered 25, they countered with 35 and I countered back with my original 25(I know, rather cheeky of me) but I really only wanted it for fun. Now that I have it here I think it is probably worth a little more then I paid.

Microcontrollers & FPGAs / Re: Atmel is now Microchip ???
« Last post by coppice on Today at 02:12:23 PM »
End user prices may be the same, the contract large number prices are changing. That's all I am saying and that is already too much  ;)
Do you know that Microchip are hiking prices just for parts that started in Atmel? It could be much broader.

Beginners / Re: Electret Microphone Circuits

The transistor is biased fairly well. But the fairly low impedance of the mic with the 1k resistor that powers it reduces most of the negative feedback from the base resistor then the distortion at high levels (loud sounds) is very high. An audio opamp makes a much better mic preamp with low noise and very low distortion.

What I am mostly interested is is if you will be able to root the device and if it comes with a open boot loader.
I doubt it. I believe the CAT S50 had a locked bootloader so this probably will too. The only you could root the S50 seems to have been via. a exploit
