      Finished the speed ball upgrade and installed the new potentiometer. Sounds great but I fucked up something up because there is a low hum.

        Just unfuck it, and you'll be good. ;-) Suspects include a bad tube (try different tube(s)), bad filter cap. I'm not sure what the speed ball upgrade is, but if the hum responds to the volume control then you can isolate it to a circuit that you changed before vs after the volume pot in the signal path. Etc.

        I am 100% certain it's my volume pot circuit. Will work on it today and let you guys know.

        Blessing in disguise perhaps, internships can be traps. I know you got skills and friends here when you need them. Remember to breathe.

        That sucks. Sounds like they are blaming you for their own incompetence. It happens in life and it's a good lesson in CYA and company politics.

        My main issue with crossfit is way to often I see people prioritizing more reps vs proper form.

        But have fun at the gym, it helps when you enjoy it. Set some goals and knock them down. The biggest problem area for most (including myself at times) is diet. Once you lock that in though you are set!

        Hell yeah, this does good stuff for you physically (brain chemicals as well as your muscles) and psychologically. Keep it up. I lapsed for a couple months, time to re-up my rec membership as the cold months approach.

        I think Billy Corgan played all the instruments on that album. Have you heard Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger?

        Have you seen Season 2 yet? I thought it was lacking compared to S1, which was incredible.

        SPOILERS AHEAD
        Watching it now. I am 3 episodes from completion and its been a minute since I've seen season 1. From what I recall it's hard to compare season 1 to 2. Season 2 is focusing more on the fallout and might not seem as exciting as the execution.

        Wish You Were Here has to be my favorite song by them. Followed by the entire Dark Side of the Moon album in a close second.

        Is the 40th anniversary remaster acceptable or do I need the original Vinyl rip?

        Personally prefer Sean's 40th, but the original vinyl is good/different as well. Recommend avoiding the mp3/m4a rips, the Sector boxed set, and the 1997 remasters.

        Reminds me of the days when I was 10~12 y/o where I needed to wake up at 7:30AM during Saturdays to go to school for extra classes as I was a competition rep - Missed shitloads of Digimon episodes then. Sigh.

      My favorite thing about the Bifrost Multibit is the power switch. Turning off that annoying LED is really nice at night.

        oh haha. just mean that Bifrost Multibit, Gungnir Multibit, Yggdrasil all sound at their best when they're nice and toasty warm and left on 24/7. Modi Multibit is small and heats up pretty quickly but i just leave it on all the time as well.

        It's nothing groundbreaking but I think it is great when I need to get some work done or relax a bit while still being "in the zone." Soothing but motivating at the same time.

        I must have good taste. I was looking at that one as well. I got sidetracked and started looking for a Sennheiser official one because I didn't buy mine new from them.
