Re: Analog Devices Agrees To Buy Rival Maxim

Is this good or bad about parts quality, performance, availability, price, second sourcing ?

Re: I love modern technology

May be this guy.... Indeed, it looks like BS because there is absolutely no information about wether the board was actually good to complete the work. So, I will not try this gamble. Do you think there is a chance, carefully destroying the cap to get access at the pads ? Well, I know what I could do...

Re: I love modern technology

I'll try heating. There is very little accessible to touch with the iron tip and no way to heat both side simultaneously. I think of destroying the case to have access from the inside. Pliers, cutter, whatever ? Is there a chance, this way ? I have seen a video, where the guy yanks SMC caps with pli...

It is the can with about no lead on each side.
On top of this, it is crowded around.

I do not have an airgun.

Re: They Walk Among Us

Not clear wether this is pedophilia.
Looks more like drug business related. Gangs that rule by terror.
I think these arrests are the result of police in Europe that cracked encrypted communications used by criminals on private networks.
Too bad, criminals are aware of it.

Re: I love modern technology

The odds are your TV needs new caps. I had two PC screens gone bad. It started with trouble to turn on, becoming more and more troublesome, until final failure. I opened them, they are waiting for repair. One has clearly a cap that vented, its top is cracked. Trouble is, this cap is SMC on a fragile...

Re: Gentle persuasion over time

Removing tree stumps is a pain. The stump grinder is likely the best way to go. There are many tricks, but mostly not so good.
I had luck on a large stump from the help of a friendly mushroom that did a great job biting deep inside.
I wish I could patent this mushroom as a stump eater.

Not BS rituals...
