USB Power Surges and Kills It by Flasherly[_2_]
Bought a 115V to USB Adaptor. I don't believe I've even got a year usage out of it. Had a power outage and an external processor, serving for SPDIF red-laser audio to analogue conversion, would not power back up. (I like it for when mixing processed signals for it's part as an oversamped...

Is Class 1 laser safe enough for baby eyes? by Mr. Man-wai Chang
I meant, what if someone accidentally shine Class 1 laser into a baby's eyes? Would it hurt retina and leave a permanent damage? I know ... I know... it should NOT happen. Adults are supposed to be very very careful. :) -- @[email protected] Remain silent! Drink, Blink, Stretch! Live long and prosper!! ...

USB 3.0 hub question by Yes[_2_]
I'm thinking about buying a USB 3.0 external hub for my pc. I'm looking for one that has about an 18 to 20 inch cable length and will use the older 3.0 USB connectors (Type A ???). Are there any hubs being made that fit those conditions? Who is making them? The ones I saw at newegg look to have...

Power Button Problems by [email protected]
I have an Optiplex 360 that I cannot turn on because of a faulty power button. I have no idea how to repair this since I cannot get to the power button, which is sandwiched in between the plastic case and a metal cage. There is a small circuit board which a 20 pin cable(XT029) is attached to and...

Greased Pigs by Flasherly[_2_]
https://renewablelube.com/ Mine's front and centre, 3rd from left, in the white container. Commercial grade, or otherwise something that wouldn't be commonly found. High-temperature breakdown rating, at the time I bought for a rotisserie oven in mind, or consequently food safe. Interesting...

Microscopically Matching Braided USB [Keyboard] Cable by Flasherly[_2_]
After repeated key failures, repeated instances of disassembling the keyboard to individually fix them, this has inevitably turned into a jOb perspective. But I've also a workable Chinese soldering station, fine-tipped and adjustable to 25- or 40-watt. I therefore KNOW, now, that this little...

Viscous Dissipation by Flasherly[_2_]
Chinese Pulley: $2/US Stainless steel. Fixed centre shaft. Single pulley wheel rides directly on shaft, e.g. no intermediary ball bearings. M2 (? Chinese) rating: Guesstimate a working load around 100lb. max for practical eyeballing (at the pulley) - probably advertised for twice or more that,...

AMD and a hot date to flirt at the horrorshow by Flasherly[_2_]
(HexDump seldom-crashed messaged bits&pieces) CoreTemp and SpeedFan freewares. (And a lot of disparities between the two and how AMD's implementing sensors. The "tester" may have a better sense than CoreTemp programmer's treatment, i.e. marginality for offsets somehow seem a...

Can I make my power supply fan turn faster? by [email protected]
The fan is making noise. I can stop it with a pencil. I sprayed a jet of wd 40. It is a little more quiet. I think if I could get it spinning faster and give it one more burst, it might hit the spot.

another SSD aspirant by Flasherly[_2_]
$75/US 480GB ADATA Ultimate SU650 2.5" SSD ADATA is apparently the cookie-cutter among SDD technologies: They combine all the available controllers and NAND. Not sure how long this one has been on their back-burner, in superceding the SU800 series, although for ADATA it is rather peculiar: On all...

Security using XP with Firefox no longer updating itself by John B. Smith
Firefox tells me they will no longer be updating their XP 32bit version. Their solution: buy Windows 10 if I want to be secure. My question to you guys is how much trouble can I get into by ignoring their 'advice' and proceeding as usual?

Weirdness in my Chinese keyboard sweatshop by Flasherly[_2_]
Couple of keys I'd resoldered are both num6 next to the far-right +. The former went intermittent again. Opened up totally-black keyboard secured by 8 hex-ish if not Chinese variant phone screws on top, 8 cross-head Phillips screws on bottom. Checked with x30 magnifier to find solder slop, which...

Slightly off-topic: Tracking Files by Bill[_39_]
I use CCleaner everyday to purge my browsing history, etc. It used to run faster. It takes quite a while to even remove "counters.dat", whatever that is. I don't remember it being an issue before. Evidently, I can accumulate 2000-8000 "tracking files" without even doing a lot of browsing...

All the same and $44/US for a 240G MLC SDD (VNand or 3D high-density variant). 3-yr warranty through other than Amazon -- a Microcenter storefront distribution play thereon. Plus taxes for new and improved, US-NET leveling tax legislation for individual states. Ebay can't touch it, although they...

HDD ratings by Flasherly[_2_]
3T models were recently atrocious, past few years, whereas 2/4/6TB weren't. Strangely eye-opening. I'd still want manufacturing drive dates, model verification numbers, still, were I interested in a...

Archival Storage by Flasherly[_2_]
Recent assessment over the state of things, I'm running 10TBytes of HDDs: Five TBye HDD or at once and in addition from a backup reserve. Everything, all the way to a couple of Seagate 200G drives, even a pair of 250G WD Caviers. The latter, although the Seagates are by no means either immune,...
