        It's not falling you need to be afraid of - it's the ground!

        Good luck and have fun though!

        If you get the bug for it, try to do it somewhere near mountains. Any time you jump is thrilling, but having another height reference as you descend is breathtaking.

        Yeah, I should have, but I was told that the amplifier worked, just one channel was dead. The only thing I actually did to it was replace the fuses and fix the power cord. I guess something else went wrong.
        Maybe I should get a variac so I don't blow anything up or set my apartment on fire.

        Don’t hook up speakers until you’ve checked the outputs for DC. Otherwise you could blow a speaker too.

      Saw guest speaker from genelec thursday. Most impressive were the little 3" monitors. Said they went to 70hz. I didnt believe, until I heard

        Very impressive for their size, and not too bad at $600/pair. Sounded great even in the large lecture hall. Bigger ones were better though. Also pretty inovative subwoofer design they use for their sub, port is cool

        Yeah, hopefully. First step, one is missing the fuses. Once I get the fuses, one channel still should be bad, but first need fuses. What is the difference between slow blow and fast blow fuses?

        Just thought of that because a guy got fired from his dream job for a years-ago "fuck the police" tweet and an "n---a" in a Kanye lyric he tweeted. Don't get fired 5 years down the road from your Sennheiser job for this shit. I can post a link about the story if you like.

        If you have to choose between "socially prominent" and "has someone in my area of interest whom I will learn from," always choose the latter. Good mentoring is worth so much more than what some strangers think about where you go to get it.

        Vibrations…reminds me I just saw that Canon filed a patent which uses magnets to create a Hall effect for IBIS. All the existing systems use voice coils, which are bigger and less precise.

        For those moments when you _want_ vibrations in your electronics.

        Then you put it in the washing machine and hang it out to try, turn dirty into clean. Does a broom fit in a washing machine by the way or must you resort to hand wash?

        Sometimes what's needed is not necessarily less thinking, but careful thinking. The multitude of possibilities can be distracting, like many colored marbles all rolling at the same time. Try to figure out which of your ideas are similar or inter-related, and group them together. You might find that your thoughts distract you less.
