    If you wanted to get way more into electronics on this, you could build your own UPS based on that battery, that way she wouldn't even have to move a plug. But this seems good for a quick'n'dirty thing that works

    The one thing you missed is that for whatever reason, HDMI audio, especially with ARC, has _huge_ latency vs plugging an optical cable into your TV. I don't know what the technical reason is for this, but it's a major problem for anything latency sensitive like rhythm games or multi-room audio

    I agree, the regular flashy bulbs suck. Twinkling lights are much more pleasant. And they are more rare from my experience -- we have LED lights now, all white, but they're a warmer white. As for what you call the strands -- I just call them mini string lights. Well, originally I did... Now they're just string lights, as opposed to the larger incandescent sets that everyone had 20 years ago. But a long time ago, the big ones were just "string lights" and the little ones like you were wearing were just the mini set.

    Hey, Great video....question........how did you hook up go from VCR to Capture Device and the connections in between?. if I were to use this with a PC to Capture, would it go VCR to Composite-HDMI Box to USB-HDMI Capture Device? What if the TV you are using only had Composite output on it? If Iwanted to use this method with the devices listed what would my setup be? Thanks for the assistance..

    I’m in Australia 🇦🇺 (Melbourne) We call a heat pump a reverse cycle air conditioner. I’m my home we have ducted gas heating, and two aircon units. I’ve always wanted to work out which way I would calculate to find out which is cheapest to run. The gas heating works very well, and very quickly because it’s ducted I suppose. The two AC units take a while to warm the room. It rarely gets below 5oC in Melbourne.

    I Rally dont like automatic light control, because drivers rely on it to much. Y can't the lights just be always on? It really wouldn't be of any hurt for anyone. And no-one can tell me, it uses to much fuel. In a car with 100kw even 500w of Led lamps is like 0.5% more fuel consumption. That's hardly noticeable in everyday life.

    Yes, DBX, NOT Dolby X. Yikes. :) We used Dolby A, DBX and Dolby SR in the recording studios. Multiple tracks would build up noise quickly so reduction could be helpful. We also had Dolby B and C encoders for creating CDM's (cassette duplicating maters). You had to include the Dolby (warble) reference tone on the tape for the duplicaters to set the exact levels for recording otherwise the decoding would not work right.

    I grew up in a house that was built in 1920. It originally had a coal fired furnace but had been converted to oil sometime before we moved in. It had that nasty stinky oil tank in the basement and cast iron radiators in each room. Larger rooms had two. They made the most eerie sounds on a cold winter night. The hot water in the pipes would expand and tap while the radiator's relief valves popped, hissed and whistled. I was 6 years old and was convinced the house was haunted.

    In our recording studio using professional high end recorders, we would peak bias instead if over biasing for record. Specs called for 3 dB over bias to give more headroom before tape saturation and distortion. Since we were very careful to keep record levels below peak, we got more high end and openness during record. That and very careful head alignment made for excellent recordings. While we never mastered anything on cassette (of course) we did use them for reference copies.

    As a photographer who uses LED bulbs, I often have to lengthen my exposure times to keep the exposure the same between shots. At 1/60 you're likely to get a darker shot, but at 1/4 it's basically completely eliminated as the light and dark averages out.

    Let me get this right. Spend hours and hours searching drift stores for mediocre 90's speakers, buying replacement parts, fixing these things, only to get something that sounds "fine to me"? Alright, but call it what it is; a hobby project. And that's fine, I've done it, it's fun! But not really that cheap if you count in working hours. Especially when something cheap and proven, like a pair Mackie's is just few mouse clicks away.

    Try living in Chicago area during winter and you'll only see snow covered lights that are the new blinding LED ones. The older intersections don't need any of that crap and work all the time, unless of course said idiots crash into the poles or there's a power loss lol. Also FYI 99% of accidents are On purposes not actual Accidents. You should try and do a video on the idiot people that buy these new 20 million candle watt headlights in these new cars. You can't even see at night when on coming traffic is filled with these morons. Especially the blue and violet headlight donut hole heads that buy this nonsense. I drove for years in all weather with incandescent headlights with no issues and could see just fine at night, so what happened? Since when did blinding oncoming traffic become a good thing?

    I put one of these on my retro-esque sidecar rig. I wish I could find a well made one. The main issue seems to be that the armature windings break where they attach to the commutator segments. Instead of being soldered into slots, the segments have a tab that bends over and crimps to the wire...nicking the wire and creating a stress concentration that soon enough fails. There is zero slack in the wire, so it is really fussy to try to fix it, so my repairs have tended not to be very long lasting either.
