  • Do we need Radio Shack anymore?
  • I only once bought anything from RS online. It was an RCA-type female-to-female adapter, a gender changer. I did it to make the phono input on a stereo receiver accessible from outside the cabinet housing the stereo. Now, I never use the stereo at all as I just don;t have time to sit and really listen to music. I listen on my iPad with headphone or a Bluetooth speaker or with a Sonos system.

  • I'm the test guy, I'm the test guy, And you know I will find every glitch. I'm the test guy, I'm the test guy, And I’ll say when your product will ship. I wrote a song about that. http://www.edn.com/electronics-news/4383746/-Lab-in-the-Corner-empowers-the-test-engineer

  • The difference between BER and BER
  • Who knew? This reminds me of the D-Sub connectors where everyone uses DB-xx to designate them. But really, DB applies to the 25-pin version only. The 9-pin is actually a DE-9, but who uses that designation?
