    Official Team BEER-FI (Beer Appreciation Thread!)

    Quote: I almost bought some of that once. The packaging caught my eye and I mis-read the price tag... When he rang me up I was floored. That four pack of smallish bottles went back on the shelf. I would still love to try it someday but it's going to have to wait.

    Post pics of your builds....

    It's a bit of nitpicking Trenchev but you might want to swap the position of the large bulk caps with the small caps so that they are closer to the input and output of the LDO (assuming that you laid the circuit out similarly to the schematic). If the schematic is different than the actual...

    epic songs

    I can't believe no one has mentioned:   Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms   Or for something a little lighter:   The Decemberists - The Mariner's Revenge Song   The Decemberists have several tracks I believe qualify as "epic", especially on The Crane Wife.

    Official Team BEER-FI (Beer Appreciation Thread!)

    I tried Rogue's American Amber Ale and Blue Point's Spring Fling Ale tonight. Both were quite drinkable and enjoyable, but I believe that I am officially done with American ales. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like the common denominator between most American ales is a musty flavor that I...

    New Forum Complaints

    It's funny. I'm annoyed by just about everything you all are mentioning. The one thing I haven't noticed though is slow-down. Load times seem pretty snappy to me so it must be at least a little platform dependent. Using Windows 7, Firefox 3.6.3.

    Topical Shirt on Woot tonight

    They use American Apparel shirts and I actually do like the quality and feel. Sizing is a little weird but the company makes clothes for hipsters so that's not unexpected. Prints are good quality and will stay true to color if you are smart with how you wash (ie cold water, inside out, etc.).

    Bicycle Question but not Bicycle-Fi

    In the final sprint of last year's Tour de France, Mark Cavendish supposedly hit around 75 kph after a good lead in. That's over 46 mph and on a flat road. He's one of the fastest guys on the planet for those sprints. You can go way faster on a downhill.

    Interesting musical reference in Lost

    I was just wondering if any Lost fans here caught the interesting musical reference in tonight's (3/16) episode. Somewhere about halfway through the episode when Locke reached out a hand to help Kate up, Giacchino quite clearly quoted the vulgarized idea fixe from the fifth movement of Berlioz'...

    Well, I don't actually know that much about monitors. But for what its worth, I have a T260HD and I think its great for the money.

    Clearly, thin mints are superior. Although, I insist on calling them grasshoppers.
