After hopefully improving August SNR on the forum with data, I am disconnecting for awhile to take a holiday rest. Aug 20, 2017 at 7:53 AM

        I will be taking holiday and not on the forums for a period of time, as my social director has plans that are mostly offsite and outdoor oriented.

      Damn AF - slows me down and creates great opportunity for SFB mistakes during measurements. Time to rest and recreation listen instead.

        Walked it off. About 50% of the time walking will raise the ventricular rate to match atrial rate well enough to result in re-synchronization. The cardiac PLL locks and becomes stable once again.

        What? Chronic, painful medical conditions are no excuse for measurement delays!

        You're a goddamn champ for the work you do, thank you.

        Thank-you. Yeah, AF is a PITA. But quality is the watchword and I don't want to provide poor graphs which would misinform. Sometimes it takes three or four measurements to determine what is representative.

      Wow, reading the recent thread activity and all I can think of is Alan Parsons I Robot - The Voice. Maybe I should attempt to measure MCTH.

        Measurements are over my head, but system synergy interests me. I'd be really interested to see how the MCHT fits into your protestor setup.

      160 / 240 Pontus measurements completed. USB Single Ended on Friday. Tomorrow our cat is receiving oral attention from a vet specialist..

        Did you take him home when he was still woozy? I did that... just once. Collapsing cat; head on hard tiled-concrete floor. Worrying.
        After that I always let them sleep it off at the vet.

        He was still feeling the effects of the anesthesia when brought home. One hour trip home helped some. Still, we were careful to monitor his wanderings and confine him to safe spaces with carpet. Your experience sounded positively unpleasant. It helps somewhat that I am in the medical device business and have ER / OR / ICU experience.

        It was unpleasant, and I don't think I handled it well. When stubborn animals like cats have to be caged for hours or a day, it is better for the likes of me to leave it to the professionals.

        No harm done, in the end. The cat concerned made a full recovery.

        I'm holding off on posting the Ares USB measurements and both spdif and USB for Pontus until after @Torq has a chance to audition to avoid forming preconceptions. Then a rather large amount of data will be posted.

        Thank-you. The SSD and mainboard failures are the worrisome ones for me. I run Win7, do not dock, 2nd monitor uses HDMI port and my display is non-touch screen. I can't stand the glare and don't find touch all that useful for my typical measurement system use case.

        Having suffered atrial fib myself and been through a cardioversion (luckily only once myself) as well as having a brother who had to go through an ablation procedure for the same, I really appreciate your work to raise awareness on this issue (and deeply sympathize with what you've had to go through.)

        I hope you are doing much better now!

        @nedifer - thank-you, new med regimen appears to be working though the side effects are ... challenging. Had a flutter ablation (right atrium) last year. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Hopefully you and your brother are also doing well. Stress is one of my triggers, listening to calming music a powerful counter measure.
