Re: Entropy

Well at least its not like the sewer line we installed during the remodel. You would be digging in solid limestone. We started at just about a foot depth. The tap was at 8' 3" so we had a gradual fall over the 125 foot run and then a rapid drop in the last 4-5 feet. I paid about $50 per foot for th...

Re: Entropy

I've never had much luck with getting them to light all night after a cloudy or partly-cloudy day. I'm OK with the stronger of the two, it stayed lit 2x or 3x the weak sister... I don't need driveway lights these days anyhow, since I stopped playing basketball in town. I am really suspicious of the...

Re: Half decent 5.5 digit meter

I recently bough two new VOMs when my old rat shack meter stopped working (turns out it just blew a fuse in series with the leads) Now I have way too many VOMs. My current favorite is Fluke 107 but I also have a cheap no-name back up (ASTRO AM 33D) that still works AFAIK, but I never use it. [edit t...

Re: Entropy

Solar driveway lamps are now sorted with new batteries. Lights bright all night... :D My neighborhood birds like to use one lamp for target practice, maybe payback for me sealing up the chimney vents with wire screens. The bird nests up there always made a racket, so blocked them off this summer wh...

Re: Entropy

I am thinking that since I have negative draft over the top 30+ feet maybe I should consider keeping the pipe roughly level and placing another drain/trap at 25' in. It is too far below grade for a standard drain/trap, but they sell 6" extensions so that may get it deep enough to keep the pipe level...

Re: LED Forward Voltage, Vf, Versus Color

I've used red before, for a drop used to generate a bias voltage in a later BBD delay kit. It was a little odd to have an LED lit inside the closed unit. The other LED colors were too expensive when I considered this kind of stuff (the red was an relative extravagance) ... I didn't know that many LE...

Re: Entropy

I didn't plan to revisit this in my life time. After Hurricane Katrina I re-arranged my rain ditches and even buried a 100'+ pipe under my side yard to drain back ditches lower... Needless to say I have learned a bunch in the 12 years or so since I did that. The drain pipe has gotten slower over tim...

Re: simple stereo extraction from L+R and L-R mid-side?

There were a few classic stories about mono compatibility... I forget the song, it may have been a Madonna song a few decades ago, but the "new" hip stereo effect was clearly not mono friendly :roll: . They released the recording and almost immediately got complaints from some mono AM radio stations...
