    Absolutely fed up with BOA

    I'm absolutely fed up with Bank of America's thievery. They've thought it appropriate to charge me 5 separate overdraft fees at 35 dollars each for overdrafts costing less than 5 dollars. So now I'm going to have to call them and bitch at the call center rep to refund my hard earned money. I'm...

    Modular IEM?

    I've just killed my second pair of ER6i's in 3 years. Both failed at one end of the cable. I must admit that I don't take the best care of my IEMs. They spent most of their life in my pants pocket or on my dresser. Regardless, I'd like to eliminate this issue by getting some modular IEMso...

    Any one here know if Winamp v5.541 has issues playing FLAC files? I can't seem to add a few albums ripped in FLAC to my library no matter what I try. Also, the player seems to freeze every so often, producing a very unpleasant noise in my headphones. Thanks

    Bad MOSFETs?

    I've got 4 IRF24NS n-channel MOSFETs that I'd like to use as switches. I connected the source to +12vdc and measured the potential on the drain pin with respect to ground and got about 11.5 volts on all four. This is while the gate pin was not connected to anything. Shouldn't the switch be open...
