But that's not the problem.... caffeine overdose symptoms still showing....
Irregular muscle spasms, headache, dehydration, fever, frequent urination, insomnia......... I drank a single cup of coffee with 2 tbs of coffee powder + 3 tbs of chocolate sauce.

I've drank coffee before but this has never happened to me.

I had that this morning and yesterday night

 

5 cups of coffee, and two energy drinks with 4 hours of sleep is what I did. 

 

My caffine tolerance is higher than yours of course...but not that high.

more likely d/t cortisol (stress hormone).  

 

lack of sleep, caffeine and stress all increases cortisol.

Me too...stupid software engineering.
Was too dumb for the homework. Good thing I was able to "copy" it frome one of my friends.

We have a little saying here in Germany. It basically says that the word team stands for "Toll, Ein Anderer Machts" which roughly translates to "Great, someone else is doing it!".
I'm a leech.

That gives me a headache, with my one whole semester of Japanese under my belt I can read anything that isn't kanji there lol,

 

 

FYI  b1o2r3i4s5 I made the mistake of having spare time and clicking on your MAL again and it depressed me so much I had to teach myself basic CSS stuff tonight and heavily borrowed (ok copied) your design. It really is nice I wish I knew how to do this stuff back when I was in school.

So I have a question for all you otakus. It is a bit unrelated, but most of this thread seems unrelated, so hopefully it'll blend right in. I wanted to buy a portable headphone amp for my portable music setup, but I have an iPhone 5 as my DAP and unfortunately the Lightning port makes compatibility a bitch. I don't want to buy a DAC on top of an amp, and apparently a lot of the DACs aren't compatible with iOS 7 in any case.

 

My question is this: Would connecting the amp via the headphone jack of my iPhone 5 completely destroy the sound quality of whatever amp I get? I mean, I understand that it won't be as good as bypassing the iPhone's internal amp, but will amping an amped signal really screw everything up?

 

I've read through the forums somewhat, and I am getting a lot of differing opinions. Some people are saying "never do that, it will destroy the world," and others are saying "it'll still sound much better than straight from the DAP." I figured that it might be better to ask in person, and you lot seemed like the right bunch.

 

Thanks ahead of time! I appreciate it.

Destroy? From a purist's perspective, yes. Doing it personally, no not necessarily. Just make sure your iPhone's volume is set to maximum and you adjust the volume with the external amplifier.

Many DACs are compatible with iOS devices now as long as they run iOS 7, you use a Camera Connection Kit, and your DAC doesn't draw too much power.
iPhone 4S -> Camera Connection Kit -> non-powered USB hub (I don't know why this fixes the power draw issue) -> Objective DAC -> JDS Labs C5 -> headphones



I double amp my Sansa Clip Zip with the JDS Labs C5 and it actually improves the sound so that it's more listenable (I find the Clip Zip to sound a bit harsh and bright).

Not destroy, but it woulnd't be too good.

 

There are alternatives now in bypassing iPhone 5 DAC mayabe, but most of it require somewhat expensive bypass measures.

 

The iPhone 5 lightning adapters have built in Apple certified DAC's because lightning is now a digital format. The DAC in the adapter is known to not be that good, and thus going iPhone 5 to the adapter to an LOD to an amp is also not a very usable , cheap, or preferable scenario.

This is not the Haruhi we were looking for. Some of us anyway.........

 

Guess any new related work is good news at this point.
