    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.

    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...

    How to build a Super computer.

    Quote: No. Parallel computing isn't about raw speed it's about doing multiple processes simultaneously. You would have 10 processors with 2 cores each running at 3 GHz, which is almost like 20 parallel processors at 3 GHz. The thing is, it takes specialized programming to take advantage...

    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.

    A question for Ferrari.   What are you using to make your traces on the underside of the board. Many of the connections seem too long and or too perfect to simply be device leads.

    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

    I've been over 40 mph on some nice downhills and it was an amazing feeling. Not for those lacking confidence though as any panic can send you to your doom.

    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'...

    Name an album you bought on day of release

    Another one for In Rainbows here. As far as meeting or exceeding expectations, I think we all know how that one went.

It's clear, smooth and bright with good movie performance as well as typical computer activities. The few complaints I could make relate more to its performance as a...

    McDonald's or Subway

    Subway is the lesser of two evils. I eat there at some point at least 4 times a week. Its easy, the cost/calories is pretty good, you can customize and it doesn't taste too bad. The high sodium is starting to get to me though.
