  1. Having stencils for the board wouldn't hurt...
  2. RIP Terrence, Albert, Bill and Alex. #fuckcancer #fuckcovid19
  3. Well, it was $48 shipped, but got it the other day. Still figuring out how to use it. Here is an ARM processor, LQFP-100 package, soldered in. I had the alignment perfect; it moved slightly when I was tacking down a couple of corner pins. I'll go thru and verify with my Fluke.
  4. I run it on a 2012 Mac Mini i7 and it seems to work fine. 16GB Ram, 500GB SSD.
  5. Would you be able to run Windows IE on your Mac using Wine or WineBottler? I've used this on mine to run the Windows versions of LTSpice and DipTrace. It seems to work pretty well. https://winebottler.kronenberg.org/
  6. No shit... coding for IE? what a piece of fail.
  7. B normally... the equivalent of the Toshiba BL grade.
  8. Happy Birthday Al!
  9. Good god! Those things are almost approaching what where they, K1000 AKG silliness in their looks (from the front)! Back in the '70s, my brothers and I were looking for a set of speakers and the Heil AMT-1s were the runner up (to the Infinity Monitors with the Walsh tweeters). We used a single recording for evaluation... the 1970 or so CSO/Solti Mahler 8. It wound up that we would buy the speaker that didn't break up playing it at a good* volume. The Bose 901's sadly didn't make that cut... * i.e., loud
  10. I know that Kuei Yang Wang (Thorsten Loesch) one of the principals of Abbingdon Music Research really liked the Campfire Andromedas. He modded a set of KZ ZS6s to try to mimic them, but was given a pair of the real thing. I'd like to listen to them sometime. I modded a set of the KZs as he did, but didn't like the sound (but they did sound a lot better than stock).
  11. Happy Birthday!
  12. I ordered one of the microscopes that you recommended Jose. It says mid-April for delivery
  13. Since I don't have a laptop (other than my work one) readily available, or a computer down in my workshop, I'm wondering if something like these might work better for me? https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=600X-8-LED-USB-Portable-Digital-Microscope-4-3-LCD-Screen-Tool-Zoom&_sacat=12576&LH_TitleDesc=0&_osacat=12576&_odkw=8-LED-USB-Portable-Digital-Microscope-4-3-LCD-Screen-Tool-Zoom
  14. Damn, I might have to get something like that. I was trying to touch up a 100 pin uProcessor and am having a hard time telling what I am doing with my Optivisor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
