    Yamaha amp goes into protection mode

    While you had it open, how did the dust collecting system look? (That's my euphemism for the entire interior.) Literally, dust can cause these types of problems. Get a can of Ultra Duster or equivalent, and blow that puppy out.

    The COVID Vaccination Thread

    The variants are really irrelevant. The variants all use the same spike protein we are inoculating against. We're not vaccinating against the virus itself at all.

    The COVID Vaccination Thread

    As a side note, in my region the daily recoveries are regularly and easily outnumbering the daily new cases, the latter of which has been in single digits for the last two months. And is often, 1 or 0. I haven't seen any mask wearing going on, everything looks back to normal as we're having...

    I don't take it seriously. But I DO take courtesy and politeness seriously, so I still wear my mask and distance myself when I am out among the hordes. And which, I don't go out for just frivolous reasons. Although I am vaccinated I still practice respect for others.

    The Great HTF Music Challenge

    Greetings! As a hobby I do audio enhancement and cleanup, and also have a loyal if underground, base of customers who I do this for, turning their vinyl into mp3. The genre here is 60s country music. The artist is "The Ole Possum" George Jones also known as "No show" Jones. I've always loved...

    The COVID Vaccination Thread

    Which by the way, here's how it worked out for me. I was at my pharmacy getting my meds and I saw a sign on the counter, "sign up for your covid-19 vaccination" and assumed they meant, months down the road when the vaccine is much more common. Pretty cool, I thought. Build the list early. I...

    The COVID Vaccination Thread

    ALL humans 18 years of age and up are now eligible to get vaccinated in the state of Texas. On a side note - the symptoms of my immune system responding to the vaccine showed up today. Mild fever, general feeling of fatigue, dimmed energy. Nothing a sudafed and a tylenol didn't cure.

    Over 150,000 people in my region have gotten their vaxx. Here's a shot... Taken in nearby Palo Duro Canyon which I made into a demotivator meme hopefully to brighten someone's day.

    To see if I could even feel anything. Which, I did not. Until about 20 minutes later! First vaccination I have had since grade school. Probably been at least 45 years. Lost my decoder ring decades ago! Only shots I'd been taking were Crown Royal.

    The COVID Vaccination Thread

    Until about seven hours later when I noticed it wasn't hurting at all anymore and removed the band-aid, then gave it a good rub-in and massage, and did some stretching of the muscle involved. Sucker started hurting somethin' fierce, with the pain radiating even up my neck and along the...

    4 hours after the shot. Minor soreness at the point of injection. Nothing else to report.

    Actor Yaphet Kotto has passed at 81

    Versatile actor. I remember well his early roles in such TV fodder as Death Valley Days and Mannix. Memorable in every role he played. Always wanted to see him and Isaac Hayes in a Rockford Files episode starring as the ONLY man Gandolf Fitch was ever afraid of. RIP

    If he were caught and charged in federal court, it rises to a felony. On the state level it's considered more as a nuisance. Class B, little more than a speeding ticket. Theft of service is an unrelated charge, can be criminally charged with theft of service if, with the intent to avoid payment...

    It's all one pipe, regardless of splitters, speaking in plumbing terms. It's all bandwidth no matter what you're doing. Watching AEW Wrestling on Wednesday night at 7pm central on TNT? Bandwidth. The set top box is essentially a PC. Streaming a 4K youtube video on one PC while your Lady plays a...

    Soundbar vs Separates?

    Definitely. And to the OP - you don't need the nastiest biggest honkinest monster of a sound system, 5.1 is really all about finesse anyway. With surprisingly little muscle behind it, a decent system in your budget range can still part your hair when it's called for in whatever media you're...

    How To My recent cable TV odyssey

    Yes but it really only gives you 30 days back history with daily usage, not broken down by the hour. And I had checked it and saw the big pig spikes over my normal usage and that is what got me looking in my router logs. That and the fact my troubles suspiciously ended when I turned the radio...

    I have a splitter as well. One cable goes right to the set top box, the other goes to the modem. Wi-Fi router is connected to the modem via LAN cable, and all of my computers and my Vonage connect to that.

    Soundbar vs Separates?

    THAT's a big Tin Roger. The center speaker can be configured separately even in older systems. It's a must to have if dialog is important to your enjoyment. The soundbar is something I never saw as a legitimate option. Gotta have the real separate channels with satellites.

    The radio now toggles off and on, according to the schedule I've set for it in the router. One more layer of security. Radio is off when I'm in sleepytown. Oh and by the way I forgot to mention - the thread here about people stupidly buying Faraday cages for their wi-fi routers? To protect them...

    That guy would be the smart pig you referenced before. Smart-er anyway. I feel a bit guilty getting a good belly laugh from your post, had no idea this might trigger the imagination - it was just a public service basically since I was so blissfully ignorant of the leech until he started messing...
