Do we have humor threads on diy? On /g/ there's one every day.
>Pic related, it's from /g/.
Also video related, for those who say it's stupid to blink LED's with a micro controller.
pic from one guy who wanted to build a shack in the woods
This isn't actually humor... several years ago a guy did a thing where he re-built a older device, and it had blown fluid filled caps. To keep the cosmetics, he hollowed out the old caps and soldered in new caps. I seem to remember him having a viable reason for the different values, too...some other part he had to replace.
this is actually a common thing for capacitors and batteries from china. generally people buying two or so capacitors at a time are just replacing the ones in their car stereos that have blown anyway with sooped up capacitor kits so it wont matter.
>have you ever heard of something called inductance?
Yes. What's your point?
>Inductance wire one cancels inductance wire two.
And there in lies the problem. Inductors fighting one another generate heat. Lots of them in a roll generating heat together. Rarely an issue unless you are pushing the cord to the limit with a 2.4kw heater or similar. Throw in some resistance and a rug for some added excitement.
Rails like that are normally used for insane amount of amperes. One system i worked on had rails lake that carrying 3600A.
Connecting them to those thin wires (which i assume can handle the load) is the electric equivalent of using a tactical nuke to swat a fly.
looking at it a little closer, i understand what's so "funny" about it, the rubber plate would be covering the grid supply connections
the wires connected to it are switched, and are a way that they are stealing power
this would be more of a /g/ thing, but anyway
>high level programming language
>low level programming language
So what's the joke? You're programming from the atoms up?
Used to work next to a fish and chip shop. They did similar but with a mains powered drill.

>Can you fix him?
>He make sparks.
Take a look at it. Found it was out of brushes (would you like carbon dust with that?)
Commutator segments totally smashed.
A much better way to do that is to place the food on a heat safe surface and place the iron on top. That way the grease wont get into the steam holes as much and it will be easier to clean.
you have shown me the world anon
a bit of a g thing but still fits here
are you sure you don't mean "same value but smaller physical size because they are more efficient"? regardless of what it's made out of if it's rated to a set capacitance then it should be equal to another type of capacitor that is the same rating
It can't be real. Those adapters don't have any intelligence in them to do protocol and logic level conversion, they're just wires going from one connector to the other. A DB25 parallel port doesn't even have a power line, so there's no way the USB device could be getting power.
Every one of the data lines on an LPT port is a 5v power line. This was used by stuff like the NESKey.
Nibble mode only uses four pins, so you've got another four free to power the device with.
he didn't imagine he could just remove the central post. it was probably grandfathered in for the old fence when someone replaced the gate with a solid fence. it's about the right spacing from the wall to allow a gate. OP then didnt even bother levelling the panels so they stuck up and out everywhere with nails all over the place
>those huge ass 200+ amp lines go to those tiny 25 square mm cables
I'm fairly certain they go though the wall and somewhere else. Nothing wrong with the smal wires as long as there isn't much power drawn from them.
its a vertical stack of smd resistors. he ran out of a particular resistor value so used a bunch of larger values to make what he needed. i image searched it. not really funny, it's called a freestyle circuit or something. people actually do this sort of thing.
I don't know about that particular fixture, but:
>be in Taiwan
>fluorescent can light starts flickering REALLY ANNOYINGLY
>decide to pull bulb, get replacement, etc.
>try to figure out how to pop the cover off
>try to lever fixture out of ceiling
>holy shit this is hard
>get fixture pulled out of ceiling
>it has a metal arm to one side that has to be guided out of the hole in ceiling
>look carefully at the whole mess to figure out what I should have done
>front glass of fixture is in fact unremovable short of breaking it
>fluorescent bulb has two wood screws going from fixture into plastic base to hold it in place
>metal arm of fixture wraps around everything so that it takes real care not to shatter bulb when disassembling
The bulb actually wasn't replaceable in any other way than ripping the entire fixture out and using hand tools to disassemble it.
Taiwan. Go figure.
I've ranted on here before about the lack of U-traps in plumbing (because the construction magnates want to save fifteen bucks off the $30,000 cost of building a condominium that they then sell to suckers for $400,000).
