Yes. It is in my brain. I am Kim Jong Un and as such the only one who needs to affirm my own godly taste is me. 

 

I am currently looking for a shoujo manga to read because I am so very very ronery.

And are easier to look for when rechargeable (A)AA went dead and didn't charge some spare ones.


higher voltage swing

say the line-in voltage has a peak voltage of 1.5V and the amp has a gain of 2.5x.
the peak voltage after the gain stage will then be 3.75V.

if you use 4 AAA batteries, that will give you a supply of ±3V.

Since 3.75 > 3, the amp will clip.

but on the other hand, if you have 9V battery giving a ±4.5V supply, the amp will not clip since 4.5 > 3.75.

 

Other than that, a 9V is smaller than 4 AAA's.

 

A common solution to the limited supply is to use a charge pump to boost the voltage, many amps using 3.7V li-ion have this.
why didn't I use it? Well, 9V's are everywhere here in HK, they cost about $1 each.

They're slowly phasing out. xD

Otherwise we can use the alternative of wall plugged guitar power source. Since active pickups in electric guitars take 9V too, Behringer I think made a something to replace it.

But it's pretty expensive IIRC.

Wow, the first part is almost exactly the explanation I gave out yesterday.  I feel so smart XD XD XD tongue.gif

Yeah, I didn't even knew him, since I don't follow gaming sites like GB but still - it's sad just to read about that...

I've listened to the Bombcast every week for years. They really do just claw their way into your life whether you realized it or not, it was just the personal nature of the beast. You were privvy to a lot of private moments of their lives as they shared them; felt like losing a friend when I heard he died. I was personally devastated, especially since he had only gotten married literally a week ago, it just feels so unfair

Mind lending me your measurement mic someday?

Wanna try some room EQ.

Or rather I guess I should just ask where's a good place to start learning about photography?

Wata Mote has some good advice for you

I've found the biggest improvement for me is the lack of irritation the next day or 2 after shaving.  I have almost 0 irritation when using the DE, only thing like you said is it can be timely.

Yeah, I don't have too much gruff, and so Derby's work really well

 

The slowness is very satisfying though!

Ah crap, I just remembered that it'll be on a crop sensor-ed camera, don't get the 50mm unless you do a lot of portraiture.

 

The 35mm 1.8G DX is only $200, get it. tongue.gif

Haha okay, that was the plan on which one to get originally. Thanks! beerchug.gif

Fair warning, the autofocus from the 50mm f/1.8D doesn't work with your D3200 because it's actually gear driven. There's no dedicated autofocus motor in the lens. Its autofocus only works with their mid to high-end cameras (from the D7100 upwards).

Ah, that would suck... I'll get the 35mm 1.8G DX then.

Most of the time it's just trial and error. I trash like 90% of the fotos I take. You first need to master your camera and then you need to develop an eye for nice motives :-)
Browsing Flickr is great way to get an idea of what is possible with your camera and getting some inspiration in general.
Just join one of the 3200 groups there ;-)

I use Lightroom 4 to do some finetuning. Shooting in RAW is essential for that.

Haha, will do. I'll take a look at some photos in flickr for inspiration :3
