  1. !techponies Read this manual with me for fun and giggles
    1. 47 headphoneAmplifiercomponents installation drawing: from low to high principle, namely the first low welding components, such as resistor. Ohkay I sorta know what they mean here
    Pay attention to the polarity, can not meet the. Element name element label polarity fair enough, I know what they mean here, there is a little table here pointing out that there is a polarity for things like LED and electrolyic capacitors, and it does not matter for the Monolythic capacitors & resistors.

    But then

    Shall not be plugged into the IC 5532 direction, otherwise will burn IC 5532

    What ? ... I shall scour the internet looking for a YouTube video or something trying to explain this.

    Well I guess I will be watching this now before starting

  7. I have almost all parts to convert my SNES to an emulator machine. I only need an ethernet bridge, a small ethernet patch cable, and an active USB hub. Well... Also I need a small board and cables to connect the SNES controller ports to the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi board !techponies

  8. I received my second Linksys WRT54GL with DD-WRT. The guy who sold this to me was very stupid. He flashed the wrong firmware on the device and bricked it almost. By accident it could boot into the web interface and I could flash the right firmware onto it. Otherwise I had to revert the original firmware in a very complicated way. !techponies

  10. Anyone have any experience at all with Plasma Active? It might almost convince me to get a tablet (as long as I can use a keyboard with it). !techponies

  11. I cross my fingers. I install Arch Linux on my Pogoplug POGO-E02. I hope I won't brick this. !techponies

  12. I got my extremely cheap pogoplug. The original software is extremely dumb. Really dumb. This device doesn't have samba shares nor nfs. You have to use their damn dumb software or use the website to access the data. I'll have to install Arch Linux on this device to get the right amount of functionality I wanted. !techponies

  18. Can somebody suggest a good video capture card (PCI/USB) that runs well on Linux and Win7 that has S-Video, Composite Video and Chinch audio input? I want to play on my PC NES, SNES, N64, PS2 etc. My old TV card makes troubles nowadays !techponies

  19. I'm up for just about 21 minutes and my phone's battery drops from 100% to 77& :/ It's burning frustratingly fast, whichever battery I use. (I have 3 batteries for this thing, 1 is the standard htc Desire Z 1300mAh battery and the other two are 2400mAh backup batteries. Looks like I'm gonna nees 'em too...) !androidbronies !techponies

  21. What is a good Windows 7 laptop from £200 to £300? Doesn't need to be ground breaking, just good enough for frequent general use. !techponies

  22. Can anyone reccomend a decent but afforfable pair of in ear headphones? The ones I have were really cheap and sound horrible for music x.x !techponies

    • Cerulean Lulamoon-Spark likes this.
    • @leonkfox If you're looking for cheap-ish but surprisingly good, there's an ~£30 pair of Sennheiser in-ears that I don't quite recall the name of. For the price, those are absolutely amazing for sound quality. (Build quality, somewhat less so, but I think my earphones take more rough treatment than is really fair anyway, so that might not even be a problem.)

  24. If you don't like the new tab page of Firefox 13, you can adjust it to the old behaviour by typing about:config in the url bar and change the entry of browser.newtab.url from about:newtab to about:blank. !techponies

  25. Mobile RDN Website, I love you and all, but must you keep making my notices dissapear and not go on the timeline when I click send? Thankfully you don't do this very often, as I much prefer your interface to Mustards. !techponies

  26. As much as I love my room after being redecorated (mainly for the much improved lighting) one unfortunate thing about Ethernet cable has been removed, so what was once a borderline useless computer that was only good for what my phone could easily do on Wi-Fi is now not even that as it has a terrible wireless card and it's so old buying a new one is pointless, especially when my phone can do all it was good for easily. Going to be double checking the hard drive to make sure I have everything I want from it backed up, then we're getting rid of that computer due to its complete uselessness. !techponies

  27. Can't find my camera charger AT ALL. Since they're only £5 on Amazon I've ordered a back up one, and if I do manage to find the one that it came with then it'll be a handy spare to have knocking around. !techponies

  28. Ah, managed to locate my camera. ^^ Now I just need to find the bloody charger... !techponies
