Sony finally announce the end of the Trinitron CRT. Here is a link to its history, Gizmodo style.
Iíve often talked about retiring, hitching a boat to the back of my RV, and driving up U.S. Highway 50 just to have my turn [strike]pissing off [/strike]irritating other drivers. With this, I could share the love worldwide.
Rather than explain what steampunk is, just take a look at this modification of [URL="http://steampunkworkshop.com/daveveloz.shtml"]a Mac-mini setup[/URL] presented recently and youíll see what all the fuss is about. Or, just follow the link for another set of interesting wedding photos. Whatever.
What I learned this week
[B]Ranges are not always what they seem:[/B] I bought a pair of headphones (earbuds) from the local dollar-store. I got less than I expected ☺ For example, when an audio component claims to have a frequency response (range) of 20-20,000Hz, I donít usually expect there to be a hole in the middle, say 100-15000Hz where sound is mostly ignored. Also, take a look at this packaging Ė remember, ear-buds are worn [I]in the ear[/I].
