Re: DTA 2019 preparation

okay so, I believe the best course of action for a low-fi DTA 2019 is as follow: 1) Start with just one nomination thread (as per Muirium suggestion). Let people vomit their nominations, at the end check what we have and based on that create the categories. This is the most community driven DTA I c...

Re: House mites (Glycyphagus domesticus) - Anyone else had them?

When I was a kid I lived in a street where at some point there was an infestation of pharaoh ants. They're very tiny and get absolutely EVERYWHERE, even in things with closed lids, like jam jars. There wasn't a meal we ate that didn't have ants in it, they even got into your drinks. The council had...

Re: Alps restoration guide

Not surprised a rosewill product is worse than toohpaste.

Myself i use thermal grizzly ( the paste not the liquid metal) for my high end stuff, and GD-900 from china for lower end stuff/ work, that stuff is as good as MX-4 but you can get about half a ton of it for the price of a tube of MX-4

Re: DZ60 pcb

Try to get 60/40 leaded solder if you can, it much easier for inexperienced users as it flows much better and at a lower temp. ( honestly everyone should use leadded, the joints are less likely to fail due to mechanical stress ) Unfortunately, there is recent EU regulation (March 2018) that restric...

Re: DZ60 pcb

Keyboards work in a matrix So a fault on one switch can cause problems for other in that part of the matrix. Chances are that one of the pads that you solder the pins from the switch into has been lifted this can happen on lower quality PCBs when using a soldering iron with poor temperature control....

Re: My daily driver stopped working 50%

Chances are its a faulty connector. I cannot be sure but that looks like mini USB to me ( not micro) THE WORST usb connector, they fail all the time. Back when i supported blackberry phones ( back to the super old blue ones ) it was ALWAYS the mini USB that failed.
