Need a recommendation for dirt cheap line level audio isolation transformers, or diy/substitute. Audio quality is not that important here. Oct 21, 2019

        I'm generally pretty much a bamboo pole type of figure. It was once said of me that if I stood sideways and stuck my tongue out I'd be mistaken for a zip. I remember having a 28-inch waist and finding it really hard to buy clothes.

        However, I'm quite pleased that the pair of trousers I wore in London, which would not do up under the belt last year, did so this year. (And that Marks & Spencer replaced that belt, for which I did not have a bill, because it had delaminated.)

        We got caught in a thunderstorm that came out of nowhere. Got soaked, lightning struck 50m from us, we were in the forest :/
        Lost my flipflops in the stream, had to go barefoot through all that several km
        Super interesting weekend

      Apparently pure silver is the best possible metal for electricity. But contacts made of silver introduce noise.

        Absolutely! Electrons know how much you paid for the cable and adjust performance adequatelly. That's why you must never buy second hand too!

        On a serious note, no, I don't see why we would at all.

        Just one more point, then I'll shut up about metals!

        Always seems to me that people are saying that silver sounds /brighter./ Anthropomorphism much? Why aren't the bass-heads using lead cables? |lol|

        It does slightly, but it might just be a perceptual thing because it also sounds slightly faster. You can also affect bass slightly by using thicker cables. It's all pretty small changes though, and I mainly get nice cables for the ergonomics of a soft cable that doesn't make noise when it rubs on clothing/chair.

        I'll probably build some spherical enclosures and tinker with that first. Headphone parts? Uh... that's a lot more complex, like an order of magnitude. Not sure i'd have the time, will or knoweledge to do that

        It might be water, though I'm only measuring weight in the morning after urinating, and I'm well hydrated all the time. I'm assuming a loss of around 100-200 grams per day. Should be at 80kg/180lbs after two months or so.

      Just bought a 500mm mirror lens for 65 usd. It's not terrible. Got a 2x converter from some other device too. Effective f of 11000mm (crop)

        Depends, with lots of light and fast shutter, yes at times. Mostly though, no way. Even on a tripod, just walking around near it shakes everything.

        Yeah, it is fun to build, but I definitely felt like part of the fun was owning the nice amp at the end of the build. It would be hard to part with it.

        You can turn a little profit on them, actually. They routinely go for ~$500 on HF last I checked. Some peeps want one, but don't feel comfortable building their own. With the current $100 off promo, it's even less risky.

        Obviously the really short giant. A giant midget would just be a ball, and a really short giant is still a giant.
