  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. 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
