so here’s what a working high-speed fifo looks like. is it just me or is Lemmy ghosting my machine???
i’ll take a shot on NYE for you Lemmy knowing you are in the hypknowtron bringing the real party to light.
and when it’s not syncing right just for comparison…
just to summarize, it’s when the sun does farts in our direction, like this M-class,
there is some sort of “ringing” that can put the odds even for tectonic bumps. here’s south pacific island seismo starts to get “choppy” (i know, scientific terms) that my theory says precedes earthquakes. not all farts make eq. not all eq are fart triggered. but the BIG ones (2004 xmas and 2009 fukushima specifically) tend to have large solar components.
now im not saying there is going to be a big (7+) quake soon, but the odds are getting even.
for a dollar i’ll tell you where and when i think the trigger happens.
hint, this page is where i pull the seismo’s from,
perfectly clear night last night, made for brrrrr and easy view of new snow on the IR channel. all the white you see on west coast and over to the rockies is snow on mountains, not clouds. (well, some clouds of course, but mostly snow). something haven’t seen in a long time, and hopefully more coming with the front off to the west..

rescued the DC3 this summer, and finally got around to teachin this old dog new tricks. here’s the frame with the lenses removed, and about 1/2 the guts cut loose.
the cork for the glass is molded and rotted, hey, she’s 13 years old or so…
here’s the new brain on the bench. 11 channel touch sensor, at90usb1287, and level shifter set to drive 4 led strip channels (clocked simultaneously), looking like 8 led on an edge, so that’s 80 strip led’s going in to replace the 6 handmade ones.
gotta put a shout out to saleae for their logic8 bit analyzer, pulling SPI data live off the bus is a big win talking to “smart” slaves…..
and here’s the long look with strip on the bench and bc7#10 getting his firmware firmed up.
this is what she used to look like, soon to be 10x brighter and 100x smarter!!!
from an RF transistor datasheet was just casually perusing….my sense of humor in bold.
1.High Temperature ; This product might have a heat generation while operation,Please take notice that have a possibility to receive a burn to touch the operating product directly or touch the product until cold after switch off. At the near the product,do not place the combustible material that have possibilities to arise the fire.
2.Generation of High Frequency Power ; This product generate a high frequency power. Please take notice that do not leakage the unnecessary electric wave and use this products without cause damage for human and property per normal operation.
3.Before use; Before use the product,Please design the equipment in consideration of the risk for human and electric wave obstacle for equipment.
so, my weather satellite pics where getting worse since the rain came back. pulled the antenna down, cleaned all the connectors, like cleaning the lense on a camera i suppose. the corrosion becomes a semi-conductor, and can rectify RF, attenuate the signal, basically make the connection a semi-connection. doesn’t take much loss to not hear at all when listening for radio 870km away….
and now that the connection is clean, can see the coming cold front, Thanks For The Rain!!!

putzing around with camera on the 30x dissecting scope.
corrosion on the original LED hoop brain from 2002.
gonna work on frame center and better lighting, so can share all the fun things i find…
little bit of well pump fun for a good friend. out with the old, in with the new. gonna fix the old too and see what the other well can pull. blessed are we with water.
24vdc all wired and roped up and ready to go.
all of that goin in the hole.
except the plugs on the shurflo pump are shit. pins are too small for the sockets of the plug. so contact stops if the cable is wiggled. of course its gonna wiggle goin in the hole, modifed the pins a wee bit, and see how long it lasts. if quality is this far off on the things i can see, wonder how bad it is inside…. only time in the hole will tell.
and this is part of the why the old one wasn’t pushing much. argument here for brass fittings.
i was worried that maybe Santa thought i was a bad boy this year. bring on the MSRA, i’ve got my friends stash. HAPPY SOLSTICE YA’LL !!!
