    Looking for a new DMM, being wooed by Fluke

    I've been looking at multimeters as all I have now is a $30 one from Jaycar. The biggest thing I don't like about it is how long it takes to get a final reading after it overshoots and wobbles around before settling on a value; it can take a few seconds which I find annoying. I really want...

    Milling machine... am I nuts?

    I've been thinking about getting a small mill drill for a while now to use primarily for casework: general drilling but also cutting neat square holes for IEC sockets and presentable holes for front panels. I currently have my Opus DAC to finish (which will be done when its done, hopefully some...

    Which Panavise?

    So, it's my birthday soon and I think a good vice is in order. I've been looking at the options from Panavise and have seen that the Junior (201) is a popular option as well as both the PCB holders (324 and 333). There were also a number of posts from users saying they loved their Panavise...

    Brown sub-forum titles on forum pages

    I noticed a bunch of down-time today and also noticed that the colour of the sub-forum title on forum pages (see DIY forum) is brown, which is unreadable on the dark blue background. It looks like the title is in an H1 tag which has a brown style where the sub-forum title should actually be in...

    Trying to communicate with WM8740 (Opus DAC), not going well...

    Well, I now have a working Opus DAC module and have been playing with software control so that I can get an Arduino with rotary encoder and VFD to perform volume control and other control duties.   BUT, the Opus module I have is an older revision and uses the WM8740 chip and as such doesn't...

    PM alert and other usability problems

    I'd like to report a problem with PM alerting, and some other issues I'm having with usability.   When a new PM comes in, I get an alert dialog in Chrome notifying me and clicking OK takes me to my inbox. But this alert is also displayed when I'm already on the PM inbox page, so I have to...

    Recabling HeadDirect RE2?

    I bought the RE2s not long ago and have been using them at work and also while commuting to uni 2 days a week. They're great when I'm sitting still, but if I'm walking they have awful microphonics. I hear every knock as they move, hit my collar, etc. I also find the cable pretty stiff and it...

    Problem with CF modded iPod Mini

    My CF modded iPod Mini was working fine up until the other day when rockbox acted weird a few times when using the file browser; the filenames were all garbage. When I hooked it up to a computer it was a bit messed up; my parents' Windows box would have nothing to do with it, didn't mount any...
