    Please tell. What's bend radius?
  2. jimmers

    Actual radius depends on the type of cable

    I understand bend radius (simply-bend it too far it breaks or becomes otherwise unusable (either that or because of the light-speed of the photons they won't be able to make the turn because of excessive "g" loads)) and that's one of the reasons I've not tried to retrofit into my house. Hopefully the next house will be new construction and fiber may be part of the plan.
    And yes, I'm joking about the "g" load scenario.

    Hmmm, I resemble that :) .... To me it sounds pretty tasty. I really do like brussels sprouts!

    Gotta roast/fry them correctly - boiled Brussel sprouts are terrible.

    I put an Orbi into my current residence which is impossible to wire (all brick and stone) and incredibly hostile to Wifi. I almost need a transceiver in every room.

    I like the ones with Ethernet hubs in them because the Orbi's Wifi is insanely fast (+800Mb/s or faster) but most consumer electronics come with only 100Mb Ethernet. The Orbis talk insanely fast to one another wirelessly while the CE devices can talk a reliable Ethernet. Best of both worlds.

    I may have created a monster...

    With all the talk of the remastered White Album, I listened to it today via Tidal.

    Mind Blown. On the first notes of Back In The USSR. The rest of the album is just as fabulous.

    So I just handed the HE400's plugged into the Schiit stack to my wife with While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
    Now she's listening to the whole album.
    I know this is going to end well. Just not the way I thought.

    BTW, to whoever suggested planar headphones, Thank You. While the HE400 is only entry level, they sound amazing with my Schiit stack. Time to start saving for upgrades. Sigh. My poor wallet may never recover.

    I heard it on Tidal but the digital download is even better. If you get a chance compare the tracks to earlier versions, this 50th anniversary mix is special no doubt.

    I'm listening to the Super-duper Deluxe Edition right now (through my Schiit stack and HE-4XX). I'd say Giles Martin and Sam Okell hit this one out of the park. :L3000:

    Listened to a great podcast, How the Beatles made the "White Album" today on NPR: All Songs Considered with guest Giles Martin. I haven't heard the new edition but the discussion here reminded me of my reaction to hearing the Steven Wilson remix of Chicago II for the first time.

    saw this headline in my news feed today...

    Donald Trump dropped a big 'Schitt' after dismissing a U.S. hero's military service

    You definitely want to match equipment with the capabilities of your cable when possible. I have heard of home routers that recommend higher than cat 6.

    Thanks! After I finish some marking, I'll mess around with my WiFi (before my spouse comes home [zero down-time]).:ksc75smile: It's one of the consequence of being a couple of 'early adopters'.
    I'll dig around for that image's author and add it to my lesson plan on applications-of-total-internal-reflection. If I can get 1/2 the class understanding TIR, and how it's NOT refraction... that's an accomplishment. Sigh. Ontario Government: please, drop optics and resurrect kinematics in the next curriculum update!

    Christ on a cracker, @artur9 . I mean this to be a respectful question: do you live in a rammed-earth house? It's one of the building technologies my spouse and I considered. She wants us to have a straw-bale house. When we design our next home up in the sticks, we both agree to install all kinds of cable pipes for present and future upgrades (no false-walls for us... and Canadian Shield and limestone make basement's tricky).

    @Paladin79 ... your post reminded me of a 'how to geek' article about different grades of CAT cable. December, 2006 article (link's here).

    Uh.. shouldn't both be on the curriculum?
  15. ScubaMan2017
    Don't get me started! :triportsad:

    Provincially-funded high schools have rigid curriculum in grades 8-10 and Glod help me if I stray from it. Small mercy = grade 11 Physics, when taught correctly, is lab-rich. Same for Chemistry 11 and Biology 11.
