    Weight Lifters Fi

    Quote: If you give those two guys a read, you'll find out that it's all portion control for the most part, sure getting more veg and fruits are needed to be healthy, but you don't need 1g/lb of protein, "clean foods" and eating 6 times a day.

    Shaving, gents

    Quote: Trying shaving in the shower for an easy fix, even without shaving cream, the heat and moisture will open the pores, giving you a closer shave and should irritate you less. I do it all the time. I've gotten pretty good at it as well, so I hardly need to look in a mirror for touch...

    pencil fi?

    I have a P205 that I have used for years, so much that the tip is bronzed (I grip it at the tip). Two Zebra M204, that I'm not a huge fan of, but I use them now with coloured lead for work with signals (overlapping signals, easy to read).   How is the GraphGear? and the 0.3 lead, do you use...

    Shaving, gents

    I never go clean shaven, hate the look. I shave the neck with a straight blade (5 blade of something) every 3 days, beard trimmer the face when I rid of the beard. Rocking a beard right now, so simple to just clean up the neck.

    Lossless for regular CDs?

    Most will do it just so that, in the future, you have all your basis' covered for conversion. ie, if you convert to a low bitrate MP3, b/c you just listen to the tunes on a portable player, and don't notice any different on tiny ear buds, that's fine. Later though, you decide to play tunes on...

    Can't make heads or tails out of this potentiometer pinout

    Looks like 1 & 3 are connected together to make pin 1 Pin 3 is the other end of the resistor.   So, pin 1 & pin 3 connected as in and out will act as a constant resistor value   Pin 2 is the tuneable pin, and pin 4 is a for bypass.   To hook it up, ground pin 1, apply input to pin...

    what are your thoughts on when your favorite band/artist/musician sells out to make more money?

    If the music ends up being garbage I'll dislike it, otherwise, I can't judge.   RHCP seems to be one band that selled out, in a good way. Although I loved their first few albums of heavy funk, when they changed to more mainstream music, they became huge, but their music was still good - just...

    Highest frequency you can hear?

    I can hear 16k, I know when the 17k clip is done, but can't hear the actual tone.   I also don't know how much my laptop is limiting the tones, b/c when I hear much higher than I use my sig gen.

    Valab NOS DAC, did I butcher it? EXPERT needed.

    Quote:   That picture shows it all. I think you need to read up on what "parallel" means and maybe more.   "Piggy backing", as you call it, is hooking up the two resistors in parallel. You'll need to solder the two resistors in parallel in the way shown in the picture.   Lastly...

    Good quality JAZZ/BLUES & ROCK anyone ?

    I can listen to Robert Johnson, Skip James and John Hurt for days on the best equipment and I would never hate it. The music too good to ditch it b/c of poor sound quality.
