Nothing like soldering in the heat.
Back in the ’80s, I wanted an Omnibot. It was an RC robot with a tape deck in its chest that you could program to move around and talk. Awesome. I never got one.
But Karra’s older brother Markus did.
It happens. I’m very scattered when it comes to the stuff I do. I guess I’ll do a bit of a picture free status update. Continue reading “I forgot I had a blog!”
It’s a little shaky from the rage, but here’s what I get.
MEMORY_MANAGEMENT *** STOP: 0x0000001A (0x00041790,0xC080204E,0x0000FFFF,0x00000000)
That’s pretty technical. WTF. Continue reading “Full of hate.”
I hooked up my camera, now I have pictures! Well, more pictures.
This stuff is magic. Sprayed my scratchy pots with it, spun them back and forth a bit, and the loosened right up. At first I thought I’d wrecked them, they got so loose. Continue reading “Back to my Amp”
My home PC regularly blue screens. I’m learning to live with it, but it’s not something I’m used to. I have had stable computers for years running overclocked, discarded, broken, and modified hardware, with patched, modified, and out-dated software.
But my current PC hates me and hates windows. I’m running a Core2 E6300 at stock 1.86, 2 sticks of 2GB Mushkin 6400 in dual channel, Two 36GB WD Raptors in RAID, and a gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R motherboard with the latest bios. And the problem is with one of those things.
I borrowed an EVGA 8800GTS video card when I built it. It never ran very stable, and the video drivers would reset under Windows 7. I had five hard drives in my case and a 480W Antec TruePower power supply, so I figured it was a power issue. Took out three of my hard drives, put them in my NAS box, and ran it for a while. More problems, more issues, so I installed Ubuntu.
My bass amp needs some love. It’s been a few years since anything good was done to it, the pots are scratchy and the inputs don’t always work, so it’s time to blow it open and do some much-needed surgery.
