+1 for vi  :-+

emacs: *blerk*

 >:D

I wholeheartedly agree. I never understood why my colleagues insisted that 'd' for delete (or 'dd' for delete line) where hard to remember. SHIFT-CTRL-Numpad-7 for delete line is so much more mnemonic ...  |O
vi is a true object oriented editor. It's just that you name the operation before the object.  ;)

Nah. That would simply be Polish Notation. I prefer to gather all the objects into the right place, then specify the operation: RPN.
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.

Now, here's another project at pimp ma' ride DMM:

Shiny!   >:D   :-DD  :-DD

Well, impatient little me got a bit twitchy, so the 3478A is back together...

My painting efforts were less than perfect - but I think decent enough for a daily drive bench meter


Still have the side inserts to fit.  Unfortunately, it didn't come with the top insert.

That front frame looks like new -no, better than new!  ;)
What finish type is the paint? It doesn't seem to be matt..?

The paint is a satin silver.  It's a bit shiny for my liking, but I've tried some ideas on a test piece and once it has hardened up a bit, I will probably try running something like a fabric along to give more of a brushed look.

The finish only looks perfect because you can't see all the little blemishes that I can.  I'm not too fussed about them because it's going to be a working meter.  I just wanted to clean it up and that went too far.

It's missing one of the rear feet and the top insert.  Would be nice to get those, but I won't fret about that.

Yea, vi is my go-to on my Linux box here when it comes to edit config files, scripts and other smaller files.

Nobody has mentioned nedit (nirvana editor) yet, so I do:

A nice editor for GUI operation in my opinion.
(following the rule 'post pics':)


Wrote my seminar papers and pre-diploma paper ("Studienarbeit") with it. -C-code*, shell-scripts* and LaTex-code.
BTW, LaTex: Didn't see what I'd get, but what I got looked very god in regards of typesetting.   :-+

Had to write my diploma thesis with MS Word though.   :--
PITA.   :rant:






*-But I don't claim that I can program well.
In fact, the code I wrote worked despite being a student of EE rather than because.   :palm:
On the other hand: I've come across code written by software engineers over the years that was worse than what I'd claim my abilities are.   :palm:
Software and Engineering don't go together in one phrase IMHO.   :-DD

Two 'affordable' HP 5326B Nixie Counters/DVM's  >:D

eBay auction: #124106627248

Back to the Shovel......

I have so many freq counters already but no nixies... so so tempting.   :palm:

Come to the nixies!


They're calling you... 


See their soothing orange glow...


It's drawing you in...


You know you want one!

So... do I:
 1. Leave it off
 2. Cut it down
 3. Cover the BNC with something else
 4. Find a different IEC cable
 5. Mash it in anyway  (... er ... no.)

4: https://www.powercord.com.au/2m-wall-to-left-angle-iec-c13-power-cable/

Looks like that will give him the clearance he needs.  :-+

Interesting.

There is another BNC on the other side of the power socket, but it is a little further away and that plug looks to have a shorter and narrower strain relief.

I think that could work.


Edit: Update - ORDERED.

No wonder we have muppets running around destroying 5G towers, someone should section this idiot quickly, lock him up and then throw away the key, he is clearly a dangerous person to have running around stirring up conspiracy theories and fake information like this.  :palm:

And it gets even worse, he seems to getting other people to host his videos, does he have his own channel???

YT is flooded with many such videos that feature him under both Anthony Steele and also Mark Steele names?

Yep. I'm going to do some digging and find out where the piece of shit lives and what he's been up to. I'm wondering if he is actually nuts or being paid to produce this shit (like stephen yaxley-lennon is)

Is your law enforcement that dumb that they can't track down this idiot? I thought Scotland Yard was the bomb.  :-//

Forget "terrorism". I see theft, destruction of property, etc, etc.

Well I've got his home address already from a grey hat source. I'm not going to post it on here but will refer it to Ofcom and the police.

This is actually a criminal act (ofcom are already jumping on people) and he should be prosecuted for it. I suspect that they're building case evidence against him at the moment anyway. I'm sure a few YT syndication links will help that case.
